Company Girl Coffee
Welcome everyone! Today I have tea and zucchini bread. We have a lovely consignment thrift shop just down the road. That's where I found the teacup on the right. The one on the left is from a teacup exchange tea party two summers ago. It was a fun twist on a party. Bring your own teacup and simply leave with someone else's cup.
This week is a blur. Most I remember is battling a computer virus. I was so frustrated I just left it alone for a few days. I didn't even want to touch the computer. Thank God for answered prayers. I went on google and followed a few suggestions and now it's fixed!
Wow! I went out for coffee with a friend last night. Wish I could have taken all of you there. The kids were already tucked in bed hours before. Hubby was relaxing and hanging out with me before I left. I was ready to go with an hour to spare. Not rushing certainly makes for a better outing!
Being with you gals last Friday made me realize just how much I miss my girlfriends. I saw many of them at our MOPs meeting. And don't you know, the topic was about taking care of yourself, including going out for girls' night. While I love big gatherings, my soul yearned for that quiet heart-to-heart, to be heard and cared for then return the favor. And that was the agenda. My friend and I had a sweet time of fellowship together. We're doing this more often!
And I haven't forgotten my "pampering me" time. It's been on my mind all week. Thanks for all the comments, it's keeping me motivated! I plan to sneak in some bath time while the kids nap today. I still have new candles to try and lots of books on my reading list. Please try to get some "me time" too and let me know about it. We'll keep each other in check. Because we know if mama ain't happy... you better get out the chocolates!
Join us every Friday at Home Sanctuary for Company Girl Coffee! Girlfriend time is such a fine thing that I'm linking this post to Finer Things Friday.
