Hello Tuesday! I'm joining Elizabeth for tea and anything else we want to talk about or share. Today's picture above is from my lunch last Tuesday which was the first day of school for the kids. I always treat myself to a Turkey Sub from Subway and my favorite chips. In my cup is the Lipton ice tea I drink everyday, made in my ice tea maker. I do drink only tea, the occasion O.J. and milk with cookies but it's ice tea that makes me happy at lunch and dinner. The cup is nothing special, we have 6 of these cups, 3 green and 3 yellow, the colors of my kitchen. It was the perfect quiet lunch for me.
I have a little bit of this and that to share with you today....
here is the mug/cup I made for a class yesterday. This weeks' prompt is cups of any kind and I thought it would be fun to make one celebrating our Labor Day holiday. We are making a cup everyday this week, love that I've already been making them for weeks and inspired to keep making them. These are my favorite color combo to work with. This week my red/white/blue decorations around the house will be packed away and the FALL decorations come out, YIPPEE!!!
What made me happy all weekend??? Our mini pumpkins are starting to grow, look how cute and tiny he is. There are two more growing along side this one. Rich surprised me last year with them, had no idea he had planted them. So this year I knew about them and am happy to see them again!! I am a BIG pumpkin fan, any size and all colors too, you will be seeing a lot of them on my blog.
I thought I'd share my Project Life pages from the kids first week of school and a mix of other things that happened. On the left side is my lunches, sunflowers ( a post coming up on these beauties soon) and random other things from that week. On the right side is all about SCHOOL, I'm using the new Project Life mini kits my friend Nancy gave me for my birthday a few weeks ago. Thanks again Nancy, they were so perfect for this week!! I had a hard time picking which pictures to use and in the end went with these. You can click on the image to see it better. Sorry about the collage at the top being cut off, they were ordered off my phone and the size wasn't right. Will order a new one later. The kids all had a great first day and even a great first week. Hoping the same happens starting today for their second week back. I missed them and Lucky missed them A LOT but it was nice having the quiet house to myself again. Lots of time for projects and just savoring the quiet time to myself.
On my list today: laundry, sweeping, visit to my grandma's house and tonight I will be going to the library where a group of women get together to paint and share some laughs. So excited that I stumbled upon this group and have someone to share a love of paint with. They are quite the artists and are now making artist dates outside the library which I will attend when possible, YAY!
I want to thank Elizabeth for giving us this friendly, inspiring place to visit and share our Tuesday's with. Please stop by and say hello to her and see what other's are doing today. Feel free to join in anytime, the more the merrier. All you need is a cup and a story or project to share, hope to see you!!
Next up this week will be my HELLO SEPTEMBER post, a little late but still counts and sharing some Sunflower LOVE with a walk thru the garden. I love these walks and sharing them with you!
Have a great Tuesday ladies and THANK YOU so much for your visits and sweet comments!
