  1. Good morning, Seekerville! And happy weekend!

    We're still busy moving into our new house, so my day is full of chores...but I'm taking a couple hours out to go to a baby shower this morning. Don't we just love celebrating new babies?

    Have a great Saturday!

  2. Happy Weekend everyone. I began by sleeping very late just because I could and because it's raining so it felt good to sleep in. I have my first free Saturday in a very long time.

    What time Monday is that Civil War era FB party shown above?

    1. It starts at 8:00 pm Eastern Time. I'm hosting the first 1/2 hour, so show up early!

    2. Thanks, Jan. I am home tomorrow night so I will try to stop in for a while.

  3. I'm getting to the blog late today. Spent last week with hubby at the beach. We celebrated our wedding anniversary and enjoyed the Gulf skies, crystal clear water and lots of time to relax and soak up the sun!

    Now today it's overcast and gloomy in Georgia. Hope you're having a wonderful Sunday no matter what the weather is like in your part of the world!
