I loved this movie!

Mrs. Washington
goes to

We got this through Netflix and watched it last night.
Loved it!
It was funny and CLEAN!
Here's the blurb from Netflix:
When straitlaced recent divorcée Alice Washington (Cybill Shepherd) returns to Smith College to complete the coursework she began years before, her plans for a dignified college career vanish when she meets her wild child roommate, Zoe (Corri English). With Zoe's help, Alice learns to loosen up, but she may go too far when she ponders a verboten relationship with her poetry professor (Jeffrey Nordling).
I better let you know though,  I think I liked it a lot better than hubby and he usually likes everything.
Have you seen it?
What did you think about it?

Camping Pics

Here's a few of our camping pictures from last week.
Sweet Hubby and I had a great time!
Wind Creek State Park
Alexander City, AL

The geese enjoyed the early morning empty beach.

Sweet Hubby got to do a lot of fishing.

Who says tacky is out?
(No, they're not mine. :)

Thanks for stopping by.
Hope you're having a great week!

My week in review

This has been a week of every day ~ but fun stuff!
Bike riding
My bike was a special birthday gift from my special hubby five years ago.
He picked it out himself and surprised me with it.
I think he did a great job.
It is so Me.
I especially love the swirlies on it.

I helped sweet hubby give our camper her bath.
Can you tell she doesn't have any "shoes" on?
She's getting new ones for our upcoming camping trip.
One of our sons said, "You might be a redneck if you have a camper up on blocks in your driveway."

I've actually done a little more cooking this week than I have in the past few weeks.
One night I cooked chicken in the slow cooker and then cooked Aldi's Chicken flavor Vermicelli & Rice and stirred them together.

 I steamed some veggies and baked a loaf of bread in my bread machine.
And it was a quite tasty meal, if I say so myself.
I've done a little gardening.

And I had such sweet help with watering my flowers.

Grandchildren are such a joy!

Today finds me going out for lunch with my friends.
Life is sweet when it's filled with such sweet people.
Thank you, my sweet friend, for visiting me today.
Hope you leave me a message, I enjoy comments so much!

Happiness in the Everyday

I find happiness, yes, even peace and contentment, in the every day things in life.
Cleaning my home brings me a sense of rightness.  Cooking comforts me.
That's why I'm feeling so good today because I've started the day off with some of those little comforts.
On Monday, after a full weekend, I like to start by throwing in a load of laundry and then vacuuming the floors.
The bright sun shining through the lace curtains in my little sitting area makes me smile.

While hanging my laundry on the line, I take the time to look around my backyard and say a "thank You" for the beauty I see all around me.
I go back inside and mix up my granola cereal.
It's worth the extra work just for the way it makes our home smell while cooking!

Then I mix up a batch of taco seasoning.
It's a good feeling to have a jar of it in the cabinet for days when I need to make a really quick meal.

Next, I move on to the computer to print up the camping list for hubby and me because we're planning on going camping pretty soon and I can't wait!
Well, that's it for my contented little morning since it's almost time for lunch now and then time to start supper.
I think a quote from one of my favorite all-time writers, Norman Vincent Peale, in his book The Power of Positive Thinking sums up my life's outlook pretty well:
To become a happy person
have a clean soul,
eyes that see romance in the commonplace,
a child's heart,
and spiritual simplicity.
I hope you have a great day and a wonderful week, my friend!

Need a laugh today?

This video of our little Hannah never fails to make me laugh when I watch it.  I hope you enjoy it too.

I was tending to my little grand daughter (age 3 months at the time) in a store while my daughter did some shopping.  Little Hannah kept kicking her blanket off and I kept putting it back on while saying, "We're gonna kick that blanket!"  Hannah thought Grandma was very funny so I kept on saying it until another customer came up and became an audience for shy Grandma.

Hope you smiled.
