Happy Monday friends.
I am on my way to Gatlinburg for a meeting with my Southern Highlands Attractions group. It’s always nice to catch up with this group. It’s such a learning experience every single time. I will be in Gatlinburg for a few days and I am so excited to be staying at the new Margaritaville Resort. We’ll also be going to a few places I haven’t been in a long time so that will be exciting!! I’ll have a full post on that when I get back.
Anyway back to last week and the weekend. Most of my week was just work and home and back to work again. You know how those weeks can be, they seem to just suck the very life out of you. And you know what? It shouldn’t be like that. I am always the one saying make your week special and do something to make your day or week stand out. Although sometimes just having a quiet non eventful week can have its benefits.
The quiet of the week came to an abrupt halt on Saturday when I had to go to work for a few hours in the afternoon. We had over 200 people spending the night at our attraction. Because of flu and a funeral we were short staffed and so I went in to help out. I knew I was going to be leaving on Monday for a few days so I had to buy groceries, take my Mother in law some supplies and visit with her a bit, go to a funeral and to work. That’s a lot of things to do in one day. This was Mark’s long weekend at work so I couldn’t depend on him to help out much.
The babies were very lazy Saturday morning. I wished I could just cozy up with them and spend the day.
So Saturday morning I got up early and did some things around the house. I went into town and bought groceries, took them home and put them away, went to the Assisted Living Village, where my mother in law lives, to take her some supplies. Went to work and then went to my aunt’s funeral. A looooong day. On Sunday I did laundry and worked on that heart cross stitch I started last week. I will have to tell you there’s not a lot of progress there. I will be very luck to finish it before Valentines Day. If I don’t I will have it for next year.
See I told you I don’t have much of this baby done yet!!!
Another reason I haven’t worked on the heart cross stitch is because I have been working on this scarf. I love the pattern and the yarn is so soft. But then you know me I can’t seem to work on one thing at a time.
Of course after hearing the news of Kobe Bryant and his daughter and all the other people killed in the helicopter crash, earlier on Sunday, all the things of the past week take on a different light. Those families whose lives have just changed forever is all I can think about. It just proves how very fragile and precious life is. We should treasure every day.
Love your day your way!!!
