This was my weekend.

It's Monday, dear ones.
Doug was gone this past weekend, deer hunting with his brothers. When I came home from work on Thursday there were flowers waiting for me, so I got to enjoy the beauty of a little "hunter's guilt" all weekend. {My SIL Laurie said she got flowers too.}
Since our boys were all hunting, I had my three SIL's over for Girls Night In on Friday and we tried that basil jelly that my friend Patty sent me. It was a huge hit! We all loved it.
The color of this jelly was so pretty - I want a sweater in that exact shade.
Softened cream cheese with basil jelly in the center - served with crackers. Oh, and wine...
Firefly Ridge wine because...well...you know...I liked the label!
Saturday morning I drank coffee from my favorite cup, and then cleaned up from Girl's Night In. {Me and my SIL's...we sure know how to have a good time...just sayin'...}
Took it easy all day on Saturday...
And I ate way more candy corn than I care to admit.
Oh, and I did some coloring for Mel's project. {loved every minute of it!}
And that was pretty much it. I ended up nursing a stupid head cold and did nothing at all on Sunday. I even missed my friend's Witch Hat Decorating party {insert pouting here!}. Monday has come around much sooner than I cared for it to... ~sigh~

Grace and blessings to us all this week!

Sorry to hear about the cold, but the SIL party sounds like lots of fun. I've never heard of basil jelly, but must look up a recipe as I still have quite a bit of basil on my patio. Your photos are wonderful!

I always choose wine based on the label! And how cool is colouring? I'm sure that's why I love stamping so much.

By the way, I'm long overdue sending you a proper e-mail. Forgive me. I'll write soon x

PS Your cat could make me love cats :)
