Peek at My Week


I. am. tired.

'nuf said?

It has been a week of meetings - some of them stressful; some of them enjoyable. A lot has been accomplished. That is a good thing.

The most recent meeting took place last night. It was a Missions Christmas in July meeting. I even put up a Christmas tree for the decorations.

My International Christmas Tree


 Every ornament on it is from a country other than the United States. Some of them I've acquired on the ten international mission trips I've been on. Some have been given to me by others who have traveled abroad. Some are World Craft items. Each one is special!

The sombrero on top of the tree came from Mexico. My parents visited there and I asked them to bring me a sombrero. My dad was skeptical - he didn't think the tree could support it, but it does. I love my sombrero!

In addition to my many meetings (and regular stuff like laundry, meal prep, cleaning, etc), I've made 20 cards this week. That makes me happy.



SCORE TIME: Would I give this week a “thumbs up” or a “thumbs down”?



Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

A definite thumbs up from me. I love your Christmas tree and think it's so nice you took the time and trouble to set that up for your meeting. Decorating a tree is work enough once a year, LOL.
