Oh, sounds busy but fun. I am SO looking forward to seeing you in person this Friday. Thinking of you today, dear friend. So glad that you posted.

It's suppose to snow here tomorrow, too. Yuk.

Your weekend sounded fun. I, too, love the Avonlea books. I thought that I was the only adult to read them. :)

Have a good sleep and a great Monday!


Hey Joanne! That's definitely one jam-packed weekend. By the way, who's Daisy?


Today is cleaning and laundry in my house too. :)

I used to be accustomed to that pace. Now that I've gotten out of it, I dread weekends that necessitate that type of activity. Glad you got some PJ time, worked in!


Oh, I can relate to the interrupted conversations... it's nice to get a chance to have time to talk together alone!


I am supposed to be cleaning today too, but I have not gotten to it yet.
Tomorrow is another day. :0)


Joanne, rent Stranded - We liked it so much better. It is an adaptation of Swiss Family Robinson. Sounds like you are having Chicago weather! Janine


Hi Joanne! I thought you did a fantastic job speaking at CHCC MOPS a few weeks ago...I've been browsing your blog occasionally since then! It was fun to see you up front at church yesterday becoming a member! Congratulations!
