Saturday Stuff!

This has been such a good Saturday!! From the first sip of coffee sitting in front of the fireplace with our Bible, books and Country Diary to the first sip of wine this evening as we celebrate the day - it has been wonderful!!

Two little girls live next door to us along with their parents and two dogs.
Anjelina made a craft at church Wednesday night and has been waiting to catch me at home ever since.
Our big camper sits on the driveway between our houses. We have known these girls all their lives!

The card says: "You will always be my #1 neighbor."

She made the leaf stamp and gifted me with this pretty photo of her!

My favorite part of the card! Two jewels representing us.
Two little girls are two more reasons for me to bake some chocolate chip cookies Monday!

Another kindness! Dee (my niece's MIL) sent these place mats for the quads which I will take over to them tomorrow! How thoughtful! She's just that kind of person!

Louis Dean paced himself but he DID get that new microwave HUNG on the wall!!!
NOT an easy feat!
Notice the wooden T he built to hold it up while he worked?
Louis Dean's mind works in physics! How things work!
I thought it was a genius idea!
Better than us trying to hold that HEAVY thing UP!

Lo and behold!!! The oven is in place and so is the microwave!
Louis Dean is boiling some eggs right this minute so we can make a big garden salad for our supper tonight.
A salad, some wine, a fresh fire burning in the fireplace, a football game on TV for him and a good book for me......sounds like a perfect Saturday night!


  1. That guy of yours knows no limits!! And Linda...I love visiting your blog with all of it's every day living as much as you love coming to mine! Just love ya!!


  2. That's my idea of a perfect Saturday night, too. I'm glad you had a wonderful day.

  3. Your kitchen is looking good!

    The card from your little neighbor is so sweet. She certainly deserves some homemade cookies!

  4. It sure is nice having such beautiful little neighbors. The stove sure is awe sum LD will really be in his glory I can almost smell the baking from here.

  5. LInda, Such cute neighbor kids. Nice to be thought of ,isn't it? I notice LD jack/brace as soon as I looked at the picture. He's a hard working man. Glad you both had a good day. xoxo,Susie

  6. Sounds like a lovely day - I am sure both of you will enjoy the new kitchen equipment!

  7. That would be a perfect Saturday. Your little neighbor girls are darling, and their gifts and cards so personal. I'm sure they love your chocolate chip cookies. I have to get baking tomorrow as our Ladies Craft Night at Church are having a Boutique and Bake Sale.

    Your new oven and Micro looks wonderful!!

  8. Your young neighbor is a thoughtful child, that's so precious what she made just for you!

    I LOVE your new range and microwave, way to go LD and how intelligent is that to build a T? Awesome thinking!

  9. The neighbor girls are little artists in the making! How thoughtful! Louis Dean is so handy, the kitchen is looking great!
