Family Friday


I picked up the Rae Dunn pot at Home Goods last week and knew right away I wanted to plant a Holly in it for my sister, whose name is Holly. I have it on my kitchen table.

I finally found some time to finish decorating the conservatory in our apartment. I got the pictures that were sitting on the floor hung up and moved a few things here and there.

Joe and I woke early on Saturday and walked over to the Driftwood for breakfast. The place has been in business for over 75 years and still serves the best breakfast around.

Pink poinsettia! I went looking for a white or red at the nursery the other day and found a bright pink one! It’s so pretty.

I saved the best for last! Wednesday night I went up to babysit for my grandchildren while my daughter and son-in-law went Christmas shopping. The baby fell asleep early so Verne and I spent some time reading by the fireside. He is such a delight to be with.

  1. How nice you live close enough to babysit your grandchildren! I hope i get to be a Grammy someday!! ( my girls are only 26 and 20 so not ready yet!)

    That’s a pretty pink poinsettia. I saw an ORANGE one in the local food mart the other day….it looked kinda odd. But white and pink are my faves.

    How fun to walk to your fave diner! It looks so cute. I love having breakfast out. Do they serve mimosas? 😀

    I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  2. Your plants are so pretty, the holly is my favorite. So gorgeous, and unusual to see one inside. Your room is so pretty and inviting!

  3. I love those flower pots! Home Goods isn’t close to us, but I’ll have to make a trek up there. I love pink poinsettias. I enjoy breakfast out. Unfortunately we don’t do it very often. What a nice time with your grandkids!

  4. Spending time with the Grandkids is the best. I don’t think I’ve seen a pink poinsettia here, only red and white. It’s very pretty. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  5. How wonderful to get your conservatory all decorated. That must feel nice. And Justin time for the holidays. How wonderful to get your conservatory all decorated. That must feel nice. And Justin time for the holidays.
    The pot and Holly you bought for your sister, Hope, sure is a lovely decoration and reminder.
    The photo of your grandson is so precious. Fun the two of you got to spend the evening together. I bet he was delighted by you, as well.
    Have a great week.

  6. Your week sounds wonderful–walking to breakfast is a great way to start the weekend.
    That photo of Verne by the fire is precious!
    I don’t think I’ve seen a pink poinsettia. About 1/2 mile from where I live, there is a road lined with huge poinsettia shrubs. I love that they bloom at Christmas time.
    Have a Happy Thanksgiving Week!
