Good morning, friends! Happiest of Father’s Day to all the great Dads out there! I hope you have an awesome day! Grab your tea, iced or hot, make yourselves comfy and let’s talk! 🙂
If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: that Yahoo mail has, once again, been throwing you into my spam email folder. That makes me sad, because I don’t get to see your posts. What’s worse, is some of you don’t even show in the reader! So, no email, no reader, means no visit from me. 😦 I don’t know what to do anymore. And yes, the email address is in my contacts so this isn’t supposed to happen. But it does anyway.
If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: how thrilled I am for all the bloggers who won awards at the Annual Bloggers Bash yesterday. I’m so happy for all of them!! Also, thanks to everyone who voted for my blog. I can’t say that enough. It was a strong field and I was thrilled just to be nominated! You can view all the winners here : Annual Bloggers Bash Awards
If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: I got the official letter telling me everything appears to be okay from my medical tests. I’m sure you heard me sigh wherever you are. Finally, some good news!!
If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: Alyssa is taking online courses for Bible School. She’s been doing so well, and I am very proud of her. This past week, she took her exam on Joshua and scored 100%. Could there be a ministry in her future? The possibilities are endless.
If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: hubby and I spent yesterday just soaking up the beautiful weather (before the rain returns today). There was a breeze, which eventually turned into a wind. Thank goodness we were home already! Otherwise, you might have seen me waving as I flew by.
If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: I’ve taken to walking with Alyssa when she walks Darty. It’s a decent walk but short enough that I don’t tire easily. Plus I love how Darty turns around to make sure I’m still with them. He is so adorable!!
If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: normally on Friday nights, we go for pizza, but this past week, I wanted pasta. I have not had it in six months or more, carbs spike my sugar, but I indulged. Hubby had his with sausage and I had the meatballs. We love the pizzeria/restaurant we’ve been going to for years. The owners are awesome, as is the staff. All the food there is delicious! You can follow their Instagram, @PrimoPizzaWayne to see all the goodies. Oh, did I mention I do their social media? 😉
If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: As I mentioned up top, today is Father’s Day. I’m hoping the rain holds out so we can enjoy some of it outside. Otherwise, I’m cooking steaks indoors, and they never taste the same as when they’re grilled. We’re also having home-made potato salad, sauteed mushrooms and onions, corn on the cob, and an olive salad with provolone cheese. Do you celebrate Father’s Day where you are?
My Dad passed 34 years ago. Hubby’s Dad passed 31 years ago. I miss them both dearly. You can imagine how hard the day is for both of us. But memories come up and we talk about silly things that happened, etc.
If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: I decided to stop my 10 PM blog posts from now until the Tuesday after Labor Day. I usually cut back during the summer months, and the 10 o’clock slot drew the short straw. My two daytime posts will still be here, so I hope you’ll continue to visit.
Speaking of, I have a huge milestone coming up, concerning my blog, two actually. And when it happens I will be doing a giveaway. I haven’t decided which book yet. Most likely, my newest, “Short & not always Sweet”, so if you’d like a chance to win a signed copy, keep looking for the announcement!
If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: just a quick reminder…Alyssa and I would love it if you would follow our photography blog, Photos by We. It’s gotten off to a wonderful start, with many of you already joining us. If you love nature photography (me) and fluffy puppies, kitties and critters, (that’ll be Lys), we’ve got you covered!
As for the week ahead:
If we were sipping tea, basking in the sun and talking I would tell you: we’re planning on going to the zoo next weekend. That means plenty of photos will be going up on the photography blog!! I can’t wait!
If we were sipping tea, basking in the sun and talking I would tell you: it’s time to be on my way. Have a blessed week ahead, my friends! ❤
