Wrapping up the week!!!

 Boy, this has been one of "those" weeks.
I feel like I've gone around in circles and got absolutely nothing accomplished!!
Do y'all every have days....weeks....months....like that, too?

I've spent part of this week buying items from e-bay....and not for pleasure, either!!
First of all....my silly phone battery will not hold a charge....so I bought a brand-new one....let's hope and pray it's the battery and not the phone sucking the life out of the battery.

Next up....I had to buy a new taillight for my car!!!
Wanna know why?
Well....Pappy always backs the car into the basement for me so that I can just pull straight out.
One night this week, he comes upstairs and says, "Deb, I messed up".
I thought he was gonna say something to me about the air filter on his truck because that was what he went to the basement to work on.
As he was backing my car into the basement....the handle of the weed eater was hanging down from a rack....and he backed into it....busting out the taillight on my car!!!  I'm soooo glad that it was him and not me....and I couldn't say a thing....since I've backed into the basketball goal pole....and busted the bumper....thank goodness it's not very noticeable!!!

But...isn't e-bay wonderful?!?!?
He checked the price several places....and the 'cheapest' price he found was close to $120....and on e-bay we got one for $40...shipping and all!!!
So....between spending money that we wished we didn't have to spend....and battling the terribly hot temps....it's been a lllllooooonnnnnggggg week!!!

On a brighter note....a special blogging friend, Jacki @ Christie Cottage sent me these adorable owl tags.....for no special reason at all....other than she knows how much I love owls and she wanted to share with me.  
How precious and sweet and kind was that?!?!
Thanks again, Jacki!!!

And....I finished up this....I'll share more about it with y'all later on.....
And....I'm fixin' to make something out of this....which I'm super excited about and will share as soon as they're finished.....
And....I got to freeze another 4 quarts of beans out of our little bean patch.  I told some others that I do believe God smiled on those beans....but not so much the corn....oh, well!!!

Anyway....hope each of you have a blessed weekend!!!

In His Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!

  1. Hi Deb,
    Just stopping by to say thank you for your kind words when my mom passed away. They meant a lot to me.
    So glad it wasn't any worse than the taillight!! It could always be worse...like going through a wall. :-{
    Darling tags, Super-Cute fabric, and the little crocheted item looks beautiful.
    Take care and enjoy the Summer.

  3. I'm visiting from NFF, and I'm jealous of all your beans! We don't have a garden, but my grandparents do and I just brought home our first small bag of summer squash and zucchini! I love fresh veggies!
