Last night was date night!!!


Last night was Friday and it is open mic night at Borders. This is one of our favorite places to go for alot of reasons. It was very sad this week to hear that they might be closing a few of their stores and are filing for bankrupt. I am saying my prayers they won't close the one in Flint. I am also praying for all the others in the US, because I know alot of Home School Moms get their resources there, and buy the bargain books for their children. I always get my hot Chai Tea Latte, and a warm cookie, and sit and look at the magazines! I have been taking my Borders cloth bag with my notebook and pen in it!! And yes I do take alot of notes!

 



 These were my two favorites I looked at last night! I made a promise to myself that if I get the things done that I need too, I can go back and get the Altered Couture one!! Oh my gosh there are such cool clothes in there that are altered, I want to try to do!!


And the other reason we go is that this young man on the right works for my husband at Kroger's. Brian and his brother Gerard play so awesome and put alot of work into their music. Brian can sing really good. Gerard can really jam out on his guitar also!!
We have had a really tough week around here. Sim's Uncle passed away and it just seemed like alot of things were happening. A very special lady in our life gave us a gift card a while back for us to go on a date to Borders. I have stretched that card out!! LOL So that we could go on a few of them! I praise God for her being in our lives.
Today I went to JoAnn's with my coupon and got my thread I need for the curtains!! Now I am so excited to get them done!! One of the things I have to get done before I get that magazine!! And I also now have all the stuff I need to finish my Artful Bag Challenge for Febuary!! So it looks like I better get busy! LOL
Tomorrow we are suppose to be having another winter storm! For the last few days it's been sunny and in the 50's!! I have been loving it!! But I do live in Michigan so I guess you just never know what the weather is gonna be like!! My vote is on the 50's and sunshine!!!
XO Love ya, Fran.

You know I am so sad, dear friend. I hope that your Borders stays open!! Such a fun place to go. I am so glad you had a fun date night- and with music, too! I am reading the old version of The Message in the Hollow Oak right now. It was written in the 30's and it is quite a bit better than the one written in the 70's. Have you read any of the original ones? I am borrowing this from one of the sweet girls in my class. She got it at a yard sale for a quarter.:) Lori

Heh Fran - I hear you about Borders - it is sad indeed. Sounds like you have lots to keep you busy (good thing with more of this dang snow coming back our way). The one thing about living in Michigan - don't let a couple of days of nice weather fool you! Stay warm. Jewels

Hi Fran! How nice for the two of you to have a date night, Duane and I have been trying to do a little more of that lately. We consider running errands alone during the day a date! Any time we can have an uninterrupted conversation is a date! I love Greencraft too, there are always so many cool ideas in there. Stay warm, I can't believe that our snow just completely melted and were going to get a new batch tomorrow! Well, actually I can believe it, we live in Michigan! Have a wonderful Sunday, and have fun with those curtains! Theresa xoxo

I just heard the news yesterday about the book store. Now that is really sad. We don't have one in my town but there are a few down south and I love to go there.

Just a quick pop in before I take off for the store. A labor of love for sure!
