Joy and Cindy, spring 06'
(I only WISH I was this skinny again!!! 20# to go...eek!)

A much needed time out comin' up this weekend, when Farmboy and I head for the burbs of Chicago to hang with Joy and Don. It has been 2 long years since we have been there to visit, and the timing for this weekend was perfect. Not much $$$, that's for sure, but the plan is to sit around her kitchen pub table and visit face-to-face for hours on end. Then head over to Angela's farmette on Saturday for a quick visit.

Our mutual love for the Lord and His Word are some of the ties that bind us together.
The foundation, you might say.
Old stuff, fragrances, tag sales, thrift stores, grandbabies, and any other common interests we share, are just the icing on that cake.

Any special plans for YOUR weekend?
Pin It!

I am literally counting the minutes.

Planning snacks, which wines, which candles, which sofa, and on and on.
Doing the Randall Road Run for a FEW extra goodies.
