My Favorite Day of The Week

Just a quick picture of The Tiny Princess. She belongs to my son, aka The Contractor and my DIL She's learning to pose.

I think Friday is my favorite day of the week. And it's very easy to understand why. Because I get to stay home the next two. I've got a busy weekend planned. Daughter #2's girls are coming to spend the night tonight.

Some of D#2's friends are giving her a housewarming tomorrow afternoon, and I figured it would be a good idea if the girls weren't underfoot tonight so she can get things straightened up. I'll get them ready tomorrow and take them in time for the party.

But this will give me some memaw time with them. I don't usually have both of them at the same time. So this will be special. I think we are going to bake cookies tonight. Not from scratch, but the slice and bake kind. But it will be fun. Maybe I'll get some good pictures.

We are having a baby boy shower for a girl at church Sunday. I'm making a double sided cotton blanket. It will have white on one side and blue micro-mini check on the other. I'm planning to applique either a little truck or a tractor on it, and I'll put piping around the edge. I hope it turns out pretty. The baby is a preemie and is still in the nic unit at Children's in Little Rock. But he is doing really well, so I thought since its so hot, a light blanket would be good.

I also have a couple of daygowns to get smocked and finished, also for gifts. I cut them out Wednesday, sewed the sleeves in and pleated them last night. Do I hear a 'busy girl' from any one? I also have an inset for a boys outfit to smock and then make the outfit.

Back to Friday being my favorite day. I really have seven favorite days. Silly huh? I'm thankful for every day the Lord allows me to be here on this earth with my family and loved ones. I say a little prayer every morning letting Him know that, and I also tell him I'm going to go about doing all the good I can today. I try to get my mindset ready for whatever comes along. It helps me think twice before I get angry with the fellow who cuts me off on the way to work, and it especially helps me to keep my comments to myself. You know how this tongue can get us in trouble, and mine is certainly able to get me in deep. I often think of the scripture that lists gossiping with the worst sins in the Bible. Someone remind me where it is. Naturally I can't find it. It list the worst sins and says all these will have a place in the lake of fire. I most certainly don't want my tongue to cause me to lose my soul.

I still haven't decided the name of my gnome, but I'm leaning toward Ole. The reason for this is that John Wayne in his B movie days made a movie where he was a young Swede on a cargo ship prior to WWI, and was planning to go home. In fact the name of it may have been The Long Way Home. Anyway, he ended up being shanghi'd and then his ship was sunk. He had a terrible Swedish accent and it was funny listening to him. In this movie, his name was Ole. You know what sucker I am for John Wayne.

Which day of the week is your favorite? We all have them. Tell me which one and why. It might help me to pick one particular favorite.

Have a fabulous Friday. Do something silly. Make someone laugh.

She is so cute. Lucky you, you'll have a blast baking cookies and yes please pictures.
Happy Friday!
And a wonderful weekend to you too. I'm glad you liked your award.

Lisa J said... are getting gradma time, lucky you.

I think you should name the gnome Ole, that is a special name for you and "your love" so do it. It will bring fond memeories everytime you hear his name mentioned.

And why would you ruin a perfectly good cookie by baking it???? Just slice and eat it!
