A Week Through My Back Door

Good Friday morning. How sweet of you to drop in this morning. Of course the coffee is on and because of this past week, we have a choice of Lemon Meringue Pie or Almond Pound Cake. So, make yourself at home and get your choice. This has been a busy week Through My Back Door. I enjoyed Dayna when she visited last weekend, and looking forward to her next visit.
The house was shown twice last week end(to the same person) and that took up a lot of time. Dasko and I went to the Speckled Hen on Saturday, while Gloria was here for a couple of hours. I will have to say he was a good dog and behaved well. (I usually go to my Aunt Annie's with him, but she gets her hair done on Sat.)
If you came Through My Back Door, this is what you saw.
Deb brought me the ivy geranium this week.
I love the sun in this picture.
Monday night I went to cards. You know we have played cards for almost 30 years. I think we must have all be around 10 years old when we started. NOT! We all worked in special education and got together to play because one of the girls was going to be going through a divorce. We have remained solid friends through the years. We have had divorce, remarriage, marriages, births, loss of parents, those children have now graduated college or are in college.I think 2 are in high school. Time has flown! It has been a wonderful group to be a part of as you know they are always there for you. NO matter what. When Curtis was getting so bad, I could not have made it with out this group. I love them like sisters.
 Tuesday night I had a jewelry party for a friend. Now I do not do this and don't like them but what fun we had. I love the jewelry and they give wonderful hostess incentives. We had such a good time. I had just a few friends. It was very easy as all I had was Heavenly Tea, pound cake and of course coffee. I got some lovely pieces of jewelry too. Lisa  did a wonderful presentation. (BTW Lisa is Josh's mother.)
Deb and Lisa chatting it up before the party. They hadn't seen one another in several years, but had been friends in high school.
This is Gloria(my sweet realtor) being used as a model.
This group looks like they are really into it. There were 12 people there and lots of laughing. I just love being with happy people.Don't you?
I told you this had been a busy Yesterday was my day to host dominoes. I made enchilada's, salad, and the pie for dessert. Of course we drink a lot of tea and coffee, during the day. So you see, this has been a crazy, busy week Through My Back Door. Today I am going to snuggle in and read.
I did some rearranging over the mantle. I am going to show you. However I did change it back to the mirror instead of the oil canvas.
What do you think? I am liking the picture there. May have to move it back.
For the first time in a long time I am happy with my front porch.
I love geraniums. Do you? I saw this when I let Dasko out this morning.
Love the dew on the grass. The sun is
shinning and it just made me smile.
Hope you enjoy it too. We could have coffee or tea on the porch if you want.
I am so glad you came Through My Back Door, where life is good.
PS: I ask you continue to pray for Tamra. She is doing as well as anyone can, enduring what she is enduring. I want to show you what her Dad, Granddad, and Uncle did for her. This is the sweetest picture. I love this family.
Yes, they all shaved their heads. I call this support, don't you? That is her dad on the right, her uncle on the left and her grandfather beside her. I thought you all would enjoy this. She and her family appreciates your prayers.
PSS: Yesterday, after dominoes, we went to Andrews school to hear him read. All the kindergarten classes participated. They were at different tables and several children read to different families. It was so sweet to see how proud they were of being able to read their books. They wore chefs hats and carried their books on silver trays.
PSSS:Next week is the Clinton Antique Festival. I hope you can come. As I have told you before it is a wonderful way to spend the day. Lots of venders and good food
