Last week my friend, Sharon, prepared a meal for our Titus Ladies group. I wanted to take her a Happy to show her how much I appreciated her effort. While I was at the Mennonite grocery store, I saw a pretty cotton towel that said, Bless the Cook Who Serves Love and Laughter. I promptly put it in my cart!
As you can see I had some ribbon on hand so I rolled the towel up and tied a pretty bow. When you get to be our age there is not much that you really need but everyone can use a nice fresh dishtowel. And speaking of ribbon....I save all the pretty pieces of ribbon that come on packages etc Often they can be reused. My mother knows I use lots of ribbon and she had received a gift that had some gros grain ribbon around it. She saved it for me. I will press it a bit and put it in my stash. And if you do not want to get out the iron you can easily straighten the ribbon with a flat iron for hair. Be sure and test a small piece first..you do not want melted ribbon on your flat iron. And delicate ribbon still requires an iron on low heat. Gros Grain ribbon is pretty hardy so the flat iron works well on it.
Margaret is here and Kendall is spending two nights also. I will post some pictures tomorrow. I got tickled at them last night as they were hungry before bedtime and I fixed them a bowl of cereal. Margaret said, "I've never had breakfast at bedtime!" We ended up calling it a Brack...Bedtime snack. It must have helped them sleep because they are both still sawing logs this morning. Today we are off in search of back packs and lunch bags. It is good to have two sweet girls visiting. As neither has a sister, they enjoy being together.
