What a Happy Dayyyyyyyyyyyyy

What a precious Sunday I've just had.
Church this morning as always, a real joy.
Then home for dinner (the steak was yum)
After that we took a drive out to Dromoland Castle for a walk by the river 
& a wee stroll around the lovely walled gardens

The flowers were so pretty & so welcome after all the rainy grey weather we've had recently

Just lovely

Then off home for some of this

And this

And a new cushion to boot

Have been blessed today, am feeling very satisfied right now.
My crochet granny is growing as is my waist, what with steak, cupcakes from yesterday
& the dessert I had at dromoland (didn't take a snap of that don't want you all thinking I'm a total glutton)
I'm pretty ready for a lot of activity this week.
I've had such a nice weekend & I feel so refreshed & thankful

Well I look forward to getting back here again during the week & catching up with all your beautiful blogs
Lots of love Karen xxxxxx

  2. Hello Karen. SO pleased to hear that you had a lovely day. The thing that really caught my eye in your post today - your lovely cup and saucer set!! They are so pretty. Lorraine xx

  3. Looks like a fab day. I had a good one too. We had an Indian Missionary preach in Church who really inspired me and God spoke massively. Got new school shoes for Lily and then it was off to KFC for lunch. Fab! xx

  5. Hi Karen, What a lovely Sunday! Delicious food and time outside is the perfect way to recharge your batteries for the week! I am fighting off round 2 of a cold/flu that has been circulating at work. Achooo!! xoxo Debbie

  6. What a lovely outing with your family! I wish I had a castle near by that I could drop by! Don't beat yourself up about the "gluttony" as you put it. Life is short. enjoy every morsel! (By the way - I see the granny blanket grows steadily....keep going... I can't wait for the big TA-DA!)

  11. Hi Karen,
    I am catching up after having had a super busy weekend!!! I missed your oreo cookies cuppies. Wow!!! Sounds like you had a lovely day yesterday!! I am noticing that even though we live in different countries, far away from each other, we share so many similarities! I love Yankee Candles...Oreo cookies, crochet, and Country Living magazine!!!

  13. Hi Karen

    I am so surprised I have not come across you before, you are a woman after my heart with all those yummy treats, those oreo cookie cupcakes, but your quilts and crochet are just amazing, I sat with a you tube tutorial the other night trying to teach myself how to crochet and then I see all your beautiful creations, someday maybe!!!

    Best wishes
