Excuse me, but have you seen Monday?

Wherever did it go?  I was on the go yesterday, running errands and such....I have some big things coming up, and I am getting ready for them!

So I have my Willow House Open House & Sample Sale  coming up.....and I am working on the menu.  It was have to be a little simpler this year, as I have a million and one things packed in the calendar all around the Open House.  Whoa, however did the calendar get so FULL already?  Do you feel like that sometime, that it doesn't do any good to plan things as the calendar gets darned full whether you plan things or not??? However, I have to say that many of them are joyous things in my life, so I am not at all complaining!
One of them is a visit to see my new grandbaby!! I am over the moon excited!  I cannot wait to snuggle her!!!  The baby smells, the soft baby skin, oh my goodness!!
I realize I am not the only grandmother in the world, and many around me are also having grandbabies, and even their first, but it all feels so wonderful so please excuse any momentary gushing that you may encounter.  I'll just add fair warning, that it may not be quite over just yet!!! Ha!

So some of what I did yesterday was baby shopping....oh my lands, there is a whole new retail area yet to discover.....shopping for grandbabies.  I can tell I am going to have to have a bonafide Baby budget!!!

Also, I need to get back to my Get It Done party that I had back in September! I don't know how much I got completed from that list, but I do know that I got a great start on getting the upstairs bathroom done.  The painting and de-wallpapering got done, thanks to my neighbor.  Just some minor repairs, and the trim painting and replacing the fixtures...and it will be complete.  Hubby will help get those things done. 
The rest of that list will be put on temporary hold.  I have a baby to rock and visit!!

Ingleside Luminaries--aren't they adorable?
I will leave by saying that there is a cool giveaway going on.  Our WH design team has a blog called Plate and Pattern, and every Tuesday, they have a giveaway from the Prop closet!  Go check out today's giveaway: in fact here's a sneak peek!  They have such fun things over there, so make it one of your favs!!!

Well, enough rambling for today....come back tomorrow for Willow House Wednesday!  See you soon!

Oh, I think your Monday went where my last month went! Tomorrow, I am staying in my stretchy pants and cleaning house ALL day...otherwise I am afraid that the health department will show up and condeme us!

Suzanne. . . have you found it?? I'm looking for my Monday, too--along with a few other lost days! Help!!

Beverly said...

Monday and Tuesday??? Where are they. I needed to get so much more done.
You can baby gush all you want and when you visit, share all the sweet pictures.
Your open house will be great. I have the feeling you are a great hostess.
I'll be back tomorrow.

Gush away!! I would think you were odd if you didn't. There might be a lot of babies being born, but she is the ONLY one in your household. That makes her extra special.

Is her named spelled Catherine? I'm trying to remember the spelling. I know she's cute as a button.

And Monday went skipping off with last week... I know just what you mean. UGH.

Debbie, yes she is Catherine Elizabeth. Catherine is my first name and Elizabeth is her Nana's name.

It seems as if I'm always wondering what happen to Mondays and Tuesdays. It usually slows down on Wednesday, thank goodness! You gush, gush, gush all you want! I know you can't wait to get your hands on that sweet baby! I can't wait to see more pictures!

Diana said...

The baby budget is probably a great idea, Suzanne!! Seriously...enjoy every minute of spoiling.

Visiting and rocking that grandbaby sounds like a wonderful way to spend your time. Lucky little Catherine Elizabeth.
