Happy Saturday everyone.
I hope you all are having a wonderful and peaceful weekend.
I really need to be upstairs washing dishes and getting the house cleaned up. Oh well, it will still be there later.
Thought I would just jump on and chat for a bit first.
First off, I wanted to show you what Brett brought me home Thursday for my birthday.
*I apologize for the photos, my Mom has the camera.
One dozen beautiful red roses.
They smell so good.
I have them displayed on my fireplace and since I don’t own a vase, I used the crock that was a gift from my dear sweet friend Marie, Also known as OLM. :)
Well, you all know the mood I have been in lately, so no we didn't do anything to celebrate.
He asked if I wanted to, but I wasn't in the mood so we just relaxed and watched some tv.
Exciting, I know. :)
I also want to send out a Thank You and Hug to Linda of Parker Paradise blog for the sweet birthday card she sent me. That was so thoughtful of you Linda. Thank you for thinking of me and for bringing a smile to my face.
And for anyone who was wondering, here is an update on the quilt top situation.
Well, I sent her a message explaining all the things we discussed in my previous post but I ended it with offering her an antique coverlet slice and some quilt pieces I had.
I explained that these were not a replacement for the top, because I still do not consider it my fault that it fell apart when she chose to wash it.
These were just an act of kindness so she could have something to use for her creations. Also that there was no need to return the quilt top, she could use it or throw it away.
Here is a photo I sent her of what I would be sending.
What was her response,
“That coverlet looks old! Well, I can't tell the sizes, but it's better than nothing!
Thank you for doing this.”
Now maybe it’s just me.
Maybe I am just extremely emotional right now because of everything that has been going on in my life lately.
But to me, I thought that was kind of rude.
The part, “Well, I can’t tell the sizes, but it’s better than nothing!”
I mean, come on, I didn't have to offer anything.
I could have left it be, but after praying about it I decided to send something.
You know that prayer for strength I have been praying…
Well, it has been in overload lately.
Any who, it is what it is. And maybe she didn't mean it to come off rude. Like I said, maybe I’m just over emotional right now. It just kind of got me when I read it.
I’m going to mail it next week and hopefully put it all behind me. I seriously can’t handle one more thing right now.
Okay, that is enough dwelling on all of that!
Did you all notice my header photo on this post.
I made it at picmonkey.
I think that’s the name.
It is a free photo editing site, I just love those.
And a quick update on the house situation.
Well, we thought we had another buyer.
We agreed on a price and they were suppose to bring over the earnest money and sign an offer contract on Friday, but the backed out a few days before.
Not sure why, but they did.
I think that was harder than not getting an offer at all.
You know, I had myself on overload thinking, okay this is it. Time to start coming to terms with actually leaving. Time to get serious with deciding on a house for us. And even a little excitement on the adventure ahead us, then POOF! gone, back to square one again.
Oh well, guess it wasn't meant to be.
I am trying so hard to pick myself up.
Enjoy every day for what it is.
It is quite hard at times because we have had so much stress and loss, but I cant let myself become overwhelmed by my emotions.
It’s still a work in progress but I’m trying.
I have enjoyed seeing so many friends doing post about Fall.
I love Fall, especially Fall decorating.
I'm am going to try to find some time and energy to do some around here. I need to just let myself enjoy it.
There is a good chance we could be somewhere else this time next year, so I need to have fun with this house while I can.
Okay, I guess I have babbled on long enough.
Time to get up and do those dreaded dishes!!
Thanks so much for stopping by to visit and for putting up with all my Craziness!!!
Big Hug to you all.
Have a Fun Filled Fabulous Weekend,
