It's my sister in law Judy's birthday right about....well, right about NOW...even though its not marked on the calendar ... I am MAKING Judy's gift and since I know you are reading this sweet sister... it is going to be late. It should be ready next week sometime, so keep your eyes peeled (that would hurt?)
My mother and father in law arrive today. I am so blessed to have them in my life. We have developed a very special relationship over the years. It was not always roses, there were a few thorns to endure. Us moms can be pretty protective where our sons are concerned, as we want the very best for our children, and I will be the first to tell you I am somewhat opinionated and stubborn at times...and I hate to wait. The Lord has really done a work in my life to come to this place - and what a sweet place it is. Our mom and dad are really THE BEST - I just couldn't appreciate that way back when because I was only looking with my eyes, not my heart.
Children's children are a crown to the aged,
and parents are the pride of their children.
So, with this, I must go do the final preperations (make that grocery list for the pizza ingredients!) I'm happy to say its raining outside, as mom is very heat-sensative. Thank you, Lord, as it can be way up there in temperature at this time of the year, being the desert and all.
You all have a great weekend, and I will do my very best to get my blog entry up early each day!
BARB'S TIP # 17
Getting the Wax Out
I will stay with the candle wax theme today - and I can't take credit for this one...I read it in a Martha Stewart mag. If you have burned a votive candle in a holder, and it is STUCK inside and you CANNOT get it out (of course you can dip it in hot water, but that sometimes leaves a waxy residue) instead, put it in the freezer for a few hours and it should pop right out!
