So sweet...

Jon called me at work last night to inform me we had just been tagged.

Some sweet family left this on our doorstsep....
this large basket was filled with lots of sweet stuff. Backpacks for the girls, clothes for the boys, books, games, toys. A fabulous planner that I will take a lot of joy in, a bath set, handkerchiefs.

How thoughtful!! Don't know who it came from though-- secret service. How kind. Now I feel like passing the love along. hmmmm......






In other news, here's a purse I've been working on. I'm pretty happy with it.


I need to do some more. I'll hopefully get a few more knocked out in the next couple weeks, and then I'll check into opening an Etsy store. I purchased a couple different handbag patterns as well. So, I'll probably do more than just this tote bag style. I'll have to see how they turn out.


This week, however, my focus is going to be on getting through my garage. I have to take Saturday off this week, because Jon has inventory at work and has mandatory overtime (yay for me, bummer for Jon). So, I figured Saturday will be the perfect day for a yard sale. Hopefully I can get a lot accomplished during naptimes this week.

My mom and dad popped in for a visit yesterday afternoon. They were on their way home from a trip to Lake Powell. It was so good to see them-unfortunately I had to work last night, but they got to visit with their grandkids--always a fun thing. I said good bye to them this morning. I miss 'em already. But, I helped mom set up her own blog this morning--so now we can keep contact through one more means besides the telephone and email. I look forward to visiting her blog. :o)

Hope everyone has a great day!!
