I can't believe it has been a week since I last posted here.  Where has the week gone?  I can't remember what I did all week.  Today I am cleaning.  I remember that I went to church yesterday.  I remember I went to an office meeting on Wednesday.  I remember that on Thursday I took my homemade tomato soup into the office for a little group lunch we had planned.  I remember that my husband's birthday was on Friday and I baked him cookies and cupcakes and cooked him a special dinner.  Beyond that, nothing.  I am sure there must be a real reason why the days seem to pass so quickly the older we get.

I do know this week should be busy.  Carpet cleaners are being coming on Tuesday (I am using a gift certificate that my husband won at a fundraiser), office meeting on Wednesday, my sister is coming on Thursday (YAY!) for the weekend and Thursday night I am hosting a Girls Night Out Silpada Jewelry Party.  I used to sell Silpada, but no longer do.  I hosted a party last year, too, which was fun.  I will serve my white chicken chili again with cornbread and brownies.

For those of you who remember my issue with my old cat Violette -- she is still with us.  She spends most of her time in a loft storage area I have which helps a lot with all the mess she makes.  I put the cats up there over Christmas so they wouldn't be disturbed when my grandchildren and granddog were here.  After that I opened the door and the other two cats came downstairs, but Violette seems to prefer it up there.  There are lots of windows and she has her own food and water and litter boxes (which she won't use).  She joins the rest of us sometimes.  She has ruined the floors in the loft also. 

So that is the news here on Beech Drive.  I am posting a picture of the mimosa tree in our backyard to remind us that Spring will be here eventually and everything will be green like this again.  Hope you all are enjoying your day and have a great week!

Happy (belated) Birthday to your husband!

Yes, it is Sunday night here and I'm NOT ready for Monday!

I would be having a really hard time with Violette...bad kitty!

I often wonder where the week has gone too. I did manage to get some cleaning, sorting and decluttering done this past week and have more on the agenda, health permitting.

Have a great week, Kristina!

Love and hugs,

I'm pleased that you have found a solution for kitty Violette.
I was lucky not to have the same problem with my dear old Siamese who lived to be nineteen years old.
As for the weeks flying by, well don't they!!!I often think I feel they do because it takes me longer to do things!

Yes time does go by faster these days. My mother used to tell me that the older we get the faster time passes by and I thought it was just a figure of speech. Now at 71 I know exactly what she was talking about. I wish it would slow down some.

Maybe your naughty Violette should be banned from her favorite place until she is willing to use the little box. What a little stinker!

I read about hour husbands first cookie baking experience. How nice that they turned out so well. Now he will be encouraged and have confidence to try again. You didn't say if he cleaned up the kitchen afterward...(smile)
Hope you are having a great week!

I usually have to look at my calendar to remember what I've done in the past week. Or even yesterday.

I love Silpada jewelry. So pretty!
