How's your week been?


I started my new Monday job, spent 3 more days at my regular job, and then took Friday off to work at home.   
My work at home involved this color that Elly choose before going home to Korea for the summer.  I found a pretty comforter on one of my many thrift store trips this summer; and rather than buy another gallon of paint just to finish the closet, I think these rolls of thrifted wallpaper will do the trick.  (And they'll put up a better fight when the hangers and the wall meet!).
There were a few after dinner walks through the garden with tea; this one Hydrangea bloom is almost as big as my head (on a normal day, not after the new boss has told me yet again how pleased he is to have me work there!) and the lovely Bee Balm almost as red as my sleepless eyes tonight.  (Darn that 9 am cup of coffee and that 9 pm supper!)

I tuned in Friday night to see the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympics ..... and the evening was made more enjoyable with the addition of a glass of vino, a bowl of popcorn and Sir Paul. 

I spent a leisurely Saturday morning at the Farmer's Market where I drank that delicious (yet evil) cup of dark French roast, ate a massive apricot/almond pastry and toted home fresh carrots, beets, basil and Mesculin mix.


Saturday evening was spent with a friend at a book reading.  Canadian author Beth Powning read from "The Sea Captain's Wife" (She was wonderful!  Animated and colorful.)  There was a delicious luncheon at 9 pm (delightful finger sandwiches, decadent sweets and a glass of wine ... all for $15!  What a great deal!).

I was driven home in style, washed, brushed & donned my jammies, painted both fingers and toes, read my new book, yawned and snuggled under my bedsheet.  Sleep alluded me, so it's the perfect time to blog.



Now!  Let's try sleeping again.  Thank goodness Sunday is "the day of rest"!

How did you spend your week?




Goodnight John Boy
Goodnight Mary Ellen.
Good night Erin.

Working, cleaning, wine tasting event, and spending a wonderful day at a horse farm celebrating my granddaughter's birthday. The working was productive, the cleaning was boring, the wine excellent, and the birthday party, great fun.

You had a very busy but good week. Here at my house it was much quieter...just lazy summer days for the most part. Hope your Sunday is a wonderful one!

Congrats on the new job. Looks like you had a beautiful, relaxing, fun weekend. Hope today is just as good. Here, we're still fighting off the oppressive heat and bugs...yuck. Doing a bit of spinning and knitting, that always makes me happy!

I am an EARLY morning person.
I allow myself the guilty pleasure of a leisurely coffee (or 2) while perusing my 'usuals' (bloglist). I may not comment often, but I am taking a few moments this morning to say 'THANK YOU' for your Random Bits that I have come to enjoy, Glad you had such a Lovely weekend!

Wow, a new job. How are you liking it? Love your flowers and all the market produce. Sounds like you should be tired, yet no sleep. Have a lovely week:)

I love the colors and patterns Elly chose for the room Sandi. They are very beautiful.
All of your flowers look so pretty. Most of everyone's here are all brown and dried up!
Love Di ♥

Love your decorating! And your week rocked. Wonder if that book you mentioned is good. I need one for my book club. My week was so good. Even a little mountain trip tucked in. Today's a bit dull though. Sundays seem to be that way.

Quite the productive and fun week you had there! All of the lovelies were home this weekend so I spent my time cooking and feeding them and their boys. Now, I'm cleaning up! LOL I've also painted some bookcases the color of the walls. Which was great until I saw that the walls now need painting...oh well. :)
