Hi Beverly, I was late posting today. I had to wait for Bill to download some photos from his phone for me. The pink lights on the white house are nice. I bet Mrs. Obama had something to do with this. I like the thoughtfulness of it very much. I don't now if you saw my post or not. I had my hair styled and highlighted for my birthday. I like it very much. Different and easy to keep I hope. Thank you for picking my post for your fave from last week. I was so pleased and surprised. I also like the teapot collection. Good choices! Big smile here. We will be home on Sunday night. Tomorrow we play Missouri and I hope we win. It is another late game which means we arrive home at 1:00 pm or later, depending on traffic. Sunday will be a long day. I was going to call you tonight and then we met some of Bill's friends from Valencia where he taught math for 13 years. It is kind of late now. Talk to you soon, love, Jeanne

Love this Puzzle. It was easy but it still took me 13.38 minutes. Considering I am tired and going to bed in a few minutes, not bad. HA! Love you, Jeanne

We are at Diana's safe and sound. Our trip took 9 and 1/2 hours. Our shortest trip ever. I like the pink tree and breast cancer reminder. I forgot...so I will fix that when I catch my breath. Thank you for linking my post. I appreciate it so much. Love you much, Jeanne

Hi Beverly, WOW! the horse is beautiful and is a huge reminder of National Breast Cancer Month. Love your pink this week. I too posted a blip about breast cancer month. Also, a bit about our town and the Fall decorating. It is especially pretty this year. Tomorrow night is going to be 33 degrees here. Fall will come early this year after this cold weather. I am so pleased that I had the most clicks last week. Well, not me, but the fabulous white deer. Big smile here. Your pick is perfect. The doll is adorable. Happy Pink Saturday. Love you, Jeanne

Hello my dear friend, We sure had a wonderful visit. it went too fast. I agree that we would never run out of things to share. The laughter was the best medicine. I loved breakfast this morning with 'your' boys. We are home from Jake's game. Jake had a great line drive but they lost to a team that was unbeaten. The Just Joey roses are beautiful and I do love the colors. A stunning photo. And to think you got that post up with all the questions and comments I was making during the process. HA! Jill's pillow is sweet and I love the vintage linens she used. Susan's quilt square is an eye catcher for sure. She is so artistic in making her lovely quilts. Great choices on both blog posts. Love you, Jeanne

Hi Susan, It has been way too long since I have visited you. I took a 6 months blog break but I am back. I know you love hearts and this quilt square added to the others is just darling. I agree with Beverly, your quilts are awesome. Happy quilting. Love, Jeanne

Hi Beverly, It took forever to get the comment part up. Finally, now I can comment. I love that Kathy is going to start publishing. It was great that you shard her post. She is multi-talented. It was great that you shared this. Your picks from last week are very deserving. I enjoy this part of your PS posts. Taking a nap now. I was as up late last night reading my John Colter book. It is very good. See you soon. Love you, Jeanne

Hi Beverly, It is late but I wanted to thank you for linking me yesterday. This is the first time I have been on my computer since Friday morning. You picked the exact one I wanted to link up. The pig just made me laugh. I was going to just share the pig but I saw the other cute pics and couldn't resist sharing them. Your paints are the perfect example of how organized and neat you are. They are very pretty and I have to say you can easily find the color you want to use. I can organize like this but it would make me nuts trying to put them back in the right place all the time. So I gladly leave the organization to you and muddle through when I want something. HA! Penny does share the neatest stuff. She is a great shopper for bargain hunting. Anne's Pink Hot dog photo is sure different. A fun PS share. I will say goodnight for now. Game day is exhausting but this game day was awesome and worth being tired over. Love you, Jeanne

Beverly, this was so hard that I had to come back to it three times before I finished it. Good one! We sure beat the heck out of E. MI. I hope we can do this well all season. Is this too much to ask? HA! Love you, Jeanne

Hi Beverly, We are just now finishing our day in the garage, I had no idea it was so late. Sigh! I linked my post a few minutes ago. We are 1/4 done with a lot more to do but it is good. I filled 20 containers of his stuff and now the rest is organizing. Not one container was mine. I am whipped. Your Caroling sunrise is beautiful. I want to visit the Eastern part of Carolina one day. Congrats to Susan for the most visits and Mascha for her fun photo dancing in the rain. She looks very pretty soaking wet. :) We are going out to dinner if I can make tired self presentable. HA! Happy Pink Saturday. Love you, Jeanne

Good, hard puzzle. I honestly forgot to see how long it took me to finish. It WAS loooooong. When I saw how long it took you,I knew I was in trouble. I like a challenge. My pink post is done. Kind of different and I liked doing it a lot. See you later. Love, Jeanne

Hi Beverly, Your rose looks gorgeous. Perfection. Susan's post is very pretty and Sara's pink photo is stunning. Beautiful dress and girl in a lovely setting. I have some catching up to do after being gone this weekend. Love you, Jeanne

Wow, this was so hard I wanted to give up but I didn't. It took 1 hour and 20 minutes, which didn't surprise me when I saw how long it took you. I'm tired now. LOL. Love you, Jeanne

Hi Beverly, I am 'Johnny on the spot' today huh? HA! It made me laugh to see my link first. I tried and it worked. I love the dish you are selling. There was a time I would be 'on it', but now I am giving things away. Time is passing by fast and I do not want my children to deal with all the stuff I have. I have a long way to go before I put everything where it should go. I once had a maid tell me, "You have too many things." She was right so I told her not to dust, just clean. This was when I worked. Actually, I like to clean my own house. Riet's photo is gorgeous. I can see why she had the most visits. I love her photo blog a lot. Tricia's picture is very cool. Lots of color and so well done. Good choice. It is a beautiful day in the mountains. A nice nap sounds good to me. Love you, Jeanne

Pretty puzzle and I can't tell you how long it took to do it because I put it down for a long time. Carmen asked us to eat dinner with them and we did. Then we played cards. Fun evening. Love you,

Hi Beverly, I do use Dove body wash but I am sure I would like this too. Anything creamy appeals to me. Especially if it smells good too. I finally finished my post about 4:00pm. I had trouble linking because I just didn't do it correctly. Thankfully I figured it out. Bill is trying to get rid of my fake FB page. He is mumbling a lot over there. He announced he hates FB right now. HA! Sometimes so do I. Happy Pink Saturday. I am glad to be posting again. Thank you for hosting for these past years. Love you, Jeanne

Hi Pat, You and J have been on quite a journey.I have been on a blog break for over 6 months. I'm happy to be back. I have a lot of catching up to do. Your apt. is showing the lovely "Pat" touch. Simple and lovely. Love the no sew bench cover. I too hope you sell your beautiful home quickly. However, I will miss seeing your lovely decorating for the seasons very much. Wishing you a happy move in your plans for the future. xo, Jeanne

Hi Beverly, I did forget to link and I did take a nap. Yikes. Thank you so much for doing it for me. I adore the pink roses you shared. They are so beautiful. So is your header if I haven't mentioned it before. I wish I could have wished you a happy birthday on your post last week. Life was just too crazy last week. Love you much Jeanne

Oh my word Beverly,this was torture. Still, I liked it and I am relieved to finish it, but it took longer than I am willing to admit. I had the clue when it took you 11 plus minutes. HA! Love you

FINALLY, I'm sorry I missed calling you on your birthday. It was a day of pure exhaustion yet elation. The two weeks was over for the annual bazaar. Between that and all the grands etc. I was whipped. I LOVE this photo of you with your birthday cake. What an adorable little girl you were. With so many children in our family there are very few maybe not any of us alone celebrating a birthday. I don't remember any...that is for sure. I do have some of Carmen and me that are cute. In one of them she is washing my face. We were barely 3 or 4 years old. I do love when you share your photos of when you were a youngster. Bill got a kick out of it too. Love you much, Jeanne

Hi Beverly, It is late but I was in the mood to do a puzzle. This took me 20.22 minutes but it seemed like it went fast. It was not as hard as I expected it to be. Time for bed. Love you

Hello Beverly, I finally woke up enough to write you a comment. I LOVE your crepe myrtles so much. Beautiful in pink!!! I can't wait for mine to grow bigger and bloom like that. What a surprise to see you featured my post.Thank you so much. It sure made my day. I gave in and repeated my bazaar post today because after reading it, I couldn't have said it better. I have very seldom repeated a post so I hope I am forgiven. Happy Pink Saturday, Love you much, Jeanne
