Geeze..where's the week-end??

It's all a blur...how come the week days don't go by so fast???

Saturday I had the privilege to attend the Breast Cancer Survivors Luncheon - one that I have been able to attend for all of the 14 years they've been having them..and I plan on continuing..

But they're not always easy to go to..every year seems like there are younger and younger..one as young as 16 years old..and she was a breast cancer survivor! Can you imagine??  I hope there will be an end to this soon..too may young women {and men and any woman that has..breasts..}


But it was great to see how the list of "survivors" has grown! I think know I'd feel a whole lot worse if the numbers of survivors were dwindling...

Anyway..then it was having neighbors over for dinner..we have really been lax this summer and thought we'd better get busy before it gets too cold.  Sometimes when the weather is bad we can go for weeks and not really see the neighbors.

So Mr. B got t'cookin'..and I dragged out my old frame to take photos of the new little neighbor family and of the not-so-new neighbors as well..




{Lulu was look-out for the neighbors coming up the walk..}



It was a fun night and we love love love the new neighbors {who just have happened to have a bumper crop of veggies in their garden ..and they share!  So, with the chickens on the right {for fresh eggs} and the gardens behind us, we're pretty much all set. 






Now where can I find someone who bakes cookies...Hmmm..

Hope your weekend was fun..if not fast .

Have a good tomorrow and a great week ahead.

I agree, weekends just seem to fly by and the week seems to drag, but sometimes the week dragging is a good thing! Hope your week is a good one!

I will bake the cookies, I will bake the cookies! I would LOVE to be your neighbor! I love the pic. frame photo's.... too cute. October is 'fight like a girl' month and I am sure you are an inspiration to all the other ladies at the luncheon!!

You are the best kind of neighbor! What fun you must be and I love that writing on the wall above your kitchen. Now that is a sweet kitchen not at all what I imagined when you were telling me you had no window. All you need is a rear view mirror when working at the sink and you'll be all set.

Oh I had never even considered girls as young as sixteen having to cope with breast cancer. Thank you for sharing about your survivor gathering. It is wonderful to know that so many do very well. What rejoicing in the camp!

Look at your produce...we grow nothing that healthy in my yard. Mostly cactus and weeds-- Braxton does look just like Lola. You had quite a busy weekend.

This past weekend went by so fast for me. When we have plans every day, it goes fast. When I can stay home in pajamas, I feel like I actually have a relaxing weekend. You are such a hoot! Love how everyone is holding the frame up for the picture. Cute! Have a wonderful week. Tammy

What a nice neighborhood! Eggs, produce, and friends. Great combo! If I were closer, I'd be the cookie baker; peanut butter, chocolate chip, oatmeal.....

What a great post. I love the idea of the photos with the frames. And how lucky you are to have all that fresh food so close.

It is so sad to hear about such young girls having breast cancer.
I really wonder what we are doing wrong. I think we are putting too many fake things into our bodies.
Sounds like you had a nice weekend.
I have to get me a picture frame!!!
