Today I am going to try out a new Friday thing!! This is called Show and Tell. If you are interested in joining I will put Kellie's website on here for you.
Welcome to “Show and Tell Friday!” Do you have something special to share with us? It could be a trinket from grade school, a piece of jewelry, or a treasured collection. Look around your home for something to share; dig through those boxes in your closet if you have to! Share photos and the story that goes with your special item.
I went right into my dining room where I could stay for a long time just taking pictures of things that were my grandmothers and my great grandmothers. Some day...soon...somehow I am going to have to give these things up. I guess now is a good time to start getting records of these great things...So I begin!!
This is my grandmother Smith's baby cup
as you can see her birth date is 1899. She was
my dad's mother
my mother's side of the family. My youngest
granddaughter really would LOVE to have these!!
These are old cookie cutters that were my mother's.
I did not know that they were worth something till I
read that if they have wooden handles that they are indeed
Have not felt the best but this afternoon I am much better!! Hm!! Slept in a little and then got right up and figured that if I did not get to Curves and walking in the mall that I would just feel worse...so off to do my thing!! You know, seriously, I hate exercise!! I just have to make myself because I am so afraid what will happen IF I don't go!!
I had a little tiny bit of shopping to do! My husband has a birthday this coming Monday (Labor day). Funny thing..His mother did LABOR on the correct day!! He is going to be 64 which just blows me out of the water for some reason!! This means that I have known him for 50 years!! FIFTY YEARS!! I just cannot get over that!!
I came home to find that our friend, Robert was still mowing our neighbor's yard in the back of us. I had recommended him to her. I was so surprised to see him still there. He had mowed and picked up and all for 3 hours!! WOW!! They had let their grass get way too tall!! While he was still working I called my next door neighbor to see if Robert could do theirs and sure enough now he is over there. This guy has been mowing since 9:00 this morning and it is now after 1:00. I just went outside and took him some lunch and something to drink!! He had to be famished!! He really needs the work!! (the HEAT is bad today too!!)
Not much else going on here. Hopefully hubby will be home at a decent time today!! I really miss having him here at home. I got so used to being with him every day on our vacation and well I sort of liked it!!
Hope you all have a great weekend. We are not doing a thing!! Just being at home!! Good enough for me.
