Dab of This and That

Hope everyone is enjoying the long holiday weekend, whether you are cooking out, with lots of good food and drink, enjoying the company of family and/or friends  or enjoying a nice quiet time at home with a good book and/or a project you have been wanting to finish. Hard to  believe Summer is winding down.  The children in my area have been back to school almost a month now, and I remember when they did not go back until the day after Labor Day.
Had a surprise visit from the owner of these travel necessities ...
The lady bugs on her duffel bag are red  - don't know why they look orange in the pic.
Yep ! The little red head cherub came to visit !!
(I dread the day those beautiful red curls are cut off.)
Got a phone call at 8:15 Friday morning (before I had even had coffee) from her Mom telling me they would be at my house for dinner.  Did I rush to the grocery and plan a big dinner ? Nope  - too hot to cook!  She says they can't get good BBQ in their area, so I save my BBQ runs to a local place  for when they come in town - so that was dinner, and another daughter joined us. Good food and good company.
When they left Saturday evening they loaded up their vehicle with lots of junk  treasures that I was getting rid of in my effort to declutter.  I was glad to see it gone and daughter was glad to be the recipient, as she is visualizing  lots of  repurposing and crafty projects  in the future.
Too hot to be outside today, so swiffered up the crumbs, wiped the little red headed cupid's sticky finger prints off the glass door and edge of the table, and looking forward to their next visit.  I will look for the faux lime and apple she played with on another day.
 Enjoy the holiday weekend and the week ahead!

Oh, how fun. Her hair is just beautiful. Glad you had a nice visit, Glenda.

Oh how fun! I love visits from family. What a pretty redhead!...Christine

What a beautiful head of hair she has. My youngest had red hair until his first haircut, then we never saw it again. Sounds like you had a wonderful visit.

I just caught up with your posts. I'm still shuddering at the thought of mayo on a muffaletta...ick! I love them too, but like you, the salt is something I avoid most of the time. I had my first one in New Orleans on our honeymoon.

Don't ever let her cut those red curls...gorgeous. I'm glad you had some time with your girls. I am missing mine!

I've started going through an entire lifetime of photos. For some reason I thought throwing them all unmarked into a tub was a good idea. My goal is to get them all in albums...maybe not in exact order but at least not just in a mountain of mixed photos!

Don't let anyone cut her gorgeous hair! She really has amazing locks.
None of the kids around here start school until after Labor Day, they made it a law here in Wisc.
Some exceptions are made for private schools but I like it this way.
We need our summers here.

She does have the most gorgeous hair.

All the kids have been back to school for several weeks now. But they seem to get a lot of days off. Either that or there are more people homeschooling these days because I see kids in the store all the time when I think they should be in school.

That little red head cherub has the most gorgeous hair I've ever seen. Does her mother curl it, or is it naturally curly. Sounds like you had a good weekend. It's always fun to see the grands, even if we are cleaning fingerprints off of everything for awhile after they leave. laurie
