Another night of not being able to sleep.  The ringing in my head won't stop.

I love this picture of Ben.
Just erased Alleyne's phone numbers from my phone.  I'm sure she doesn't want to take the time to talk now.  Hope that peace is her state as she discovers the touch of her Heavenly Father.

The cake stand is from Joann's and the urn is from my neighbor's garage sale ($3).  i don't remember where I picked up the bird.

I'm going to try a new technique on my table that I found on the net.  Brush with strong tea and let dry. Take a mason jar and fill with steel wool and vinegar...let stand for three days.  I will let you know if it works.

Have a blessed weekend.

Can't seem to cool the house down tonight.  Must be the humidity with the rain coming.  Finding it hard to sleep with so much on my mind.

My mom used to say that in order to be good at having dinner guests you have to do it often.  I haven't done it often but I sure enjoyed the other weekend with Jo and Becky.  I enjoy going out to eat but I most certainly enjoyed cooking this time.  I'm working on a menu that I can repeat so I can get better at it.  Steak, rice, salad, bread and individual strawberry rhubarb pies.  I think that a homemade meal says...I'm glad you came!

My heart is sad tonight as I ponder the loss of a friend.  We weren't real close...we spoke on the phone occasionally but had not seen each other in a while.   Nevertheless she is a friend.  She used to eat the funniest lunches...while standing up.  One half to one cup frozen mixed vegetables and that's all.  She always cared about how my life was going and would do anything to help.

The thing I remember the most is that she never ended a phone call without saying I love you.  I hope that God answers our prayers and heals you Alleyne but if you are on your way to Heaven I pray that your journey will be sweet.  I love you Alleyne!
