PROJECT 365’S THRU WEEK SEVEN
Here's my week.
This week brought another birthday … 52 down and days into the 53rd…and I am thankful.
Instead of buying a gift, this year I cooked a special ‘seafood/oriental’ dinner for hubs…the lobster was scrumptious and so were the strawberries!
After dinner, hubs surprised me with flowers and cards…so sweet.
My accountability sisters and I enjoyed this season’s cute romance, THE VOW.
I forgot to get a picture of us after the movie, but here’s one of the pics from the web…
After the movie, I finished working on baby shoes to give to our local teen pregnancy center’s mothers for their new babies…
was a catch-up day for one of my friends and I…we had planned earlier in the month to go to lunch to celebrate her birthday, but I was called to jury duty.
Ms. Zena is a precious Christian sister who was born in Jamaica, and when she speaks, her lovely accent makes English sound so much prettier than my Southern lilt.
Her husband died five years ago, and she keeps herself very busy with church activities…she crochets with BS&K and me…making prayer shawls, prayer cloths, etc. She always reminds us to ‘make your own joy, it’s contagious’
There was a very large window behind our seating area, and I had to crop the picture and enhance the color so you could see our faces….the food was NOT that yellowy/orange…hahahaha!
She enjoyed oxtails, steamed cabbage, plantains and rice-n-peas (red beans and rice cooked in coconut milk…it was delicious, we each share a bite of our plates)
Below is my plate with a crispy thin plantain chip. If you happen to have a Foot Prints Jamaican Restaurant near you, you should definitely try out their food; it was wonderful.
Having run out of snaps and little buttons, I made a trip to HobLob to refill my stash and to finish the latest pair of baby shoes…these are tiny, little preemie shoes (measuring about 2 3/4”)
Enjoy your week…and
MAKE YOUR OWN JOY, IT’S CONTAGIOUS!
