I'm not sure why, but I like your list =D

My knitting is coming along fine. I'm looking forward to knitting the scarf everyday! It's so fun! And I agree with you on the zippies. I carry about 2 of them in my bag. Very convenient!

By the way, I'm noting down the birthdays of my friends in my organiser right now. Thinking of sending them cards on their birthdays. When is your birthday, Joanne? And may I have your address please? =D

Take care, my friend!


Loved your list.

I really need to order some zippies. You gave me the idea to tuck my iPod into my little one. Lucy thought it was an awesome idea. I'm not sure her iTouch will fit in one, though. I'll test it and let you know. I definitely need a big zippie for me.

I hope you have a great Sunday. Restful. I know that tomorrow is always a busy day for you.

Love you!


A great list ... sounds like a relaxing day. :)


I read the list twice...Wow..looks like you had a very busy day..but doing things that we love to do is always great...Hope you are having a perfect sunday...I am sitting in front of the TV watching the Academy Awards...


Wow, you seriously accomplished more on one day than I often do all WEEK!!! (a little too much relaxing goes on around here....)

Lisa @ The Preacher's Wife

Girl, you do more in a day than I do in a month. :))))

I loved the part about your snoring Beagle. My Daisy beagle does the same thing...She's so sweet! :)

Have a good night!


Wow sounds like you got a lot down. I love days like that!

I love that your girls watch Brady Bunch! That was one of my all time favs!!

OK~ "LORD, make me as fruitful as Joanne in accomplishing tasks this week."

I started to complain that I could never accomplish so much, then clear as day, I heard the Lord speak and say, "You have not because you asked not." So I'm asking!

My flowers, they are beautiful. My friend? even moreso!

Oh, and I'm kind of a knitter now. Looking forward to WEDNESDAY!


You totally inspired me today. I made two zippy bags for my purse. Addicted. Must make more! My girls all want them now, too.

I have this whole stash of small amounts of really great fabric I couldn't part with, but didn't know what to do with. Now I know. :)


We've recently finished Season 1 and have now started Season 2 of The Brady Bunch... the kids love it!


I enjoyed this--sometimes, the simple, everyday is the best way to get to know someone. Thanks for sharing.

Mmm, girls scout cookies--how I miss those thin mints! I was a brownie and a girl scout--loved it! Sounds like a relaxing, yet productive Saturday--good for you!
