Follow Up to Come

I haven't forgotten about writing Part 3 to my series that I started this week.  I have a lot of thoughts I need to come back and finish.  

And, I'm happy to say that this has been a much better week than I've had in a long time.   Thank you for the encouraging comments/e-mails I received.  You'll never know how much they meant to me.

In some other news from this week....

 - I got a call out of the blue from an old friend I haven't seen or even talked to in probably over 11 years.  We've exchanged Christmas cards each year but that's the extent to which we've stayed in touch.  She currently lives in Alabama but she was in town this week and wanted to know if we could get together.  

    So on Tuesday night she and I met up for a couple hours.  It was great to see her again

 - Yesterday afternoon I took the 3 big boys to see Cars 2.  Even though Charlie fell asleep in the middle of it and we paid entirely too much for popcorn and 1 drink to share, it was a blast. Who knew Cars could be an action flick?   And Mater got to be a spy!

   My only hesitation with the exciting as it this - Is it really necessary to incorporate guns, bombs, chase scenes, spy themes, and the word 'kill' (used multiple times) into a kid's movie?  I'm curious if anyone else saw it and what they thought.

 - My garden is starting to produce!  And, I'm so proud of myself that I've actually kept on top of the weeds!  We've had some fresh yellow beans, green beans, zucchini, onions, and tomatoes so far.  And, my mom sent over 2 baskets of green beans from her garden which I froze.  I put about 15 quarts in my freezer.  They boys actually enjoyed helping!

-  We've had beautiful weather this week...perfect weather really.  While I haven't accomplished a whole lot inside we have been enjoying being outside.

Happy Weekend!


  1. Oh you are so lucky for good weather. It has been so hot here well over 100 today. So we go out only in the morning and the evening. It is so fun to get yummy stuff from the garden we are so enjoying it also.

  2. Haha you sound like me buying 1 large drink to share. Glad you had a wonderful time.

  3. Glad you had a good week Karen!
    Such a great picture of you!

  4. I'm so glad you're having a good week:-).

  5. I love your week and so glad to hear you got together with a friend- sounds like fun.
    Haven't seen Cars yet- will probably see it on DVD because of cost- can't believe what they charge.
    Have a great weekend.

  6. Oh I have been so looking forward to the Cars 2 movie...I can't wait. I am sure I will see it through different eyes since I have grown sons. The last one reminded me of my 22 year old so much. I don't know that cartoon movies are just for kids anymore...maybe Winnie the Pooh. I was very disappointed in one we saw recently and decided I would check them out before taking the 5 year old any more.

  7. I've heard that from 1 other about Cars 2! We will see it when it comes to the dollar theater. None of mine are dying to see it.
    Yay for the garden!
