Thursday, September 3

5 for Thursday that feels like Friday

My friend Ginny offered to take Carly to school this morning. So,I dropped Carly at her house. By 8:45 when I got back home, I had dropped books at the library, pulled through the ATM, dropped mail at the post office, picked up Kenny's dry cleaning/dropped more dry cleaning off, and did the grocery shopping for the weekend! All that in the time that it usually takes me to take Carly to school and get back to the house. Thank you Ginny - what a wonderful help!

Ginny came over and hung out in the kitchen so we could visit. I made these cookies and Ginny organized and backed up her photos on her laptop. We weren't extremely productive but we did enjoy visiting for a couple of hours.

Inspired by a post by fellow blogger, Jill, I wrote these cute little notes and dropped them in the mail. {Thanks Jill, for the heads up about the postage} Maybe they will make it to their destinations!

Look what I got in the mail - 2 pieces of birthday good mail! Can't beat that for starting off the celebration of my birth-month. Jane, from Washington, sent me this cute card with numbers embossed on it and full of sweet words. Natasha, from Louisiana, sent this super fun lime green envelope with a cute spiral bound note book. Her card said "Happy Birthday Month!"

I put a roast in the crockpot this morning which made the house smell yummy all day. Do you put celery in your roast? Kenny likes the celery. Me, not so much but I don't mind putting it in. I just don't eat it. I was able to share 1/2 with my friend Jan's family. I didn't think about asking them if they like celery in their roast.

What a sweet friend you have! You accomplished a lot with her help! It is the little things your friends do that mean so much!

I love days like this! It looks like a Creative Friday to me!

I love your tiny cards, and was so delighted when I got one this week. It's amazing the post office can keep track of such a small thing.

Hooray for Birthday Good Mail coming in already!

I don't put celery in our roasts, but think it's an easy thing to eat around if you don't like it, so it's nice you put it in there for Kenny.

Looks like Jill and Michelle's Creative Friday almost!

I love the way a good roast and veggies in the crock pot makes the house smell but no celery for ours.

I did not know the mail man would take letters so small. Cute!

Glad you liked your little notebook. I have had to cut back on my spending and thus Good Mail sending but I still like to send a little something for birthdays.

Oh I love birthday month- How fun to start celebrating!
I loved those itty bitty cards. SO cute.
Yes, I love celery in everything, but don't love it plain.

HERE'S THE THING ABOUT CELERY. IT HAS SUCH GREAT FLAVOR. YOU DON'T HAVE TO "LOVE" CELERY, BUT IT'S FLAVOR IS A NECESSARY THING IN SOME RECIPES. I DON'T LOVE IT RAW, BUT COOKED, IT IS TOTALLY DIFFERENT.
AFTER I SAW THE PHOTO OF THE ROAST, I COULD SMELL IT COOKING!!! IT WAS WONDERFUL. GOOD JOB.
