I'm not even sure If I can do this or not but I'm going to. I'm posting a belated INSTAFriday. I know I should have done it yesterday but It was the first day I felt
good well better not disgusting all week. So yesterday I actually showered and went out with the hubby, after I got dressed of course and we even stopped or coffee. I usually get a head cold once every year but I missed last year and I was hoping this year would follow suit. At least it's done and over with so I can look forward to the rest of the season.
My week started off with a lovely bouquet of flowers from my main squeeze.
He know's just what I like. I like roses bit not particularly. I would much rather have a mixed bouquet than roses any day and these were perfect.
I was a little chilly the first part of the week so I made my first pot of stew. No, before you ask, those are not pickles and this isn't Russian soup. I actually cheated and used frozen Italian seasoned veggies and it was delish! I topped mine with a slab of Mozzerella and it was to die for!
Okay so this is something completely new for me. Amigurumi. Yes, I spelled that right. It's basically Japanese for crocheted stuffed doll. In my case it's a bear. I found the best ever tutorial (of any kind, she's a great teacher and so easy to follow) on YouTube for making this little guy. After I fdinished I crocheted a quick granny stitch blankie and attached it to the bottom of this little guy. I'm sending him off to the capital in a few days to a brand new little boy. Anyhow, if you ever wanted to try something like this, this is the tutorial for you.
I was so excited to see flowers on my clematis I planted last Spring. When we left for the states it was just starting to bloom and I was so bummed that I wouldn't get to see it. It's been so crazy warm here lately that everything is still in full bloom. I love these!
I posted this photo this week of my kiddos. This is the photo that is on the visor of our car. I miss them all so much. I'm so glad we had them here with us for the first 15 years. Now I'm praying that grand kids will be coming my way over the next 15. BTW, empty nest isn't as awesome as I initially thought.
Finally, I found this photo the other day of our preacher and his wife and us right before we left for the field in 2000. I know we look different but it's us I assure you. It seems like an eternity ago that we left and arrived here. I'm so thankful for a Pastor who taught us to stand tall and stick out the hard times.
Okay, before anyone asks, yes that is my foot in the bottom of the photo. Don't look too close, my nails need serious attention.
Anyhoo, that's my belated INSTAFriday. I figured better late than never. Hey if you want to join me, it's not too late. I'm gonna add a link up just in case there are some takers.
