First things first:
I wish I could make prints of each and every one of the heartfelt and joyous Mission Statements you girls came up with! I was touched by the thought and feeling (and humor) that went into each one. Alas, I had to draw one name, and the random drawing winner of the canvas print is Michelle, whose statement said:
Welcome to our home. We hope you find it to be a safe place where you will be met right where you are at and experience warmth, comfort and respect. We strive to work together as a team toward cleanliness, organization, and self discipline while practicing grace and understanding toward each other. We will choose to give thanks and honor time as we learn how to care for our space, our guests and each other. Preparation favors discipline. We hope you feel welcome and Loved here.
From her comment, it looks like Michelle got her family involved and came up with something they can all take ownership of. I really like that. Michelle, email me and we will talk about creating a beautiful print out of your lovely words! Congratulations!
Next, let's have a Friday Small Thing.
While we were in the kitchen yesterday, I took the opportunity to tidy up my frying pans. I have about five of them, three of which should be thrown out but I keep around just in case my good ones should go missing. Or in case I want to fry a whole lot of things at one time. You never know. The need to eat a pile of bacon might overtake me and I'd need to press every last one of them into service simultaneously.
Today's Small Thing is a Fry-day thing: just get in there and tidy up your frying pans...and shoot, why not do the other pots and pans at the same time? Psh, easy..especially for points.
POINTS: 30 for freeing the fryers from failure
BONUS: 20 for playing with pots and pans
Now let's have some Company Girl Coffee. I had a bit of a rough week with my cold hanging on, but I'm feeling better. I even felt good enough to have lunch with one of our CG's, Janice! We met at a local Panera and had a great time! I only regret that we did not get a picture together....we will have to do that next time. Thanks, Jan, for the lunch!!
So, tell us about what is going on in your life! Our weekly coffee time is a chance to visit one another and make new friends. If you're a blogger, feel free to link up below - and everyone (bloggers and non-bloggers) is encouraged to visit the list on my blog! Have a great weekend, girls!
