"A woman who works with her hands is a LABORER;

her hands and head, a CRAFTSMAN;

but a woman who works with

her hands, head, and heart is an ARTIST."

I read the above in Dana's signature line and loved it.

On the home front it has been so very busy! We catered two receptions yesterday, thankfully they were at the same church, just different times.

EVERYTHING taste better with chocolate on it! :o)
Pineapple Almond Punch! yummmm

Here is Emma serving punch, and Olivia is in the center with the pink shirt,
serving cake and making sure little fingers don't get carried away with the chocolate fountain.

Olivia and Emma also got up at 6 to go cut a bunch of wild flowers and
ivy for the table settings, which Olivia arranged on all the tables for me!

These girls are such hard workers!
THANK YOU again girls!!!!!!

I have 3 more parties in the next couple of weeks, then it should slow down and I can QUILT! :o) I also want to get the kitchen and living room painted. Olivia works constantly in the yard...well, that is when she is not READING! I feel bad for getting on to her for reading, but one must have balance, ya know! lol To say she is an avid reader would be an understatement. She is VERY excited to be able to give her speech to the Republican Meeting this week. Please pray for her that she will stay calm and remember her speech clearly.

Emma has been working finishing up some school work and helping her dad. Joshua will be in Jacksonville this week working with my brother on a private jet, they are installing a theater.

Life is good...hard at times, but good!

That was exhausting!

Love and blessings,

Kathy, can you share the recipe for the punch? I LOVE pineapple and almond flavors. Never heard of a punch with those in it.

Thank you Glenys! You are so kind. I must add though, my husband helped also. He is so wonderful. I had a hernia repair last year and he refuses for me to lift anything. :o) I wish everyone could enjoy such a wonderful husband.
