A Mosaic and Chatting...

Good Morning Friends

A Mosaic for Contribution to Mary's
Mosaic Monday.
To see more mosaics stop
by The Little Red House.


I have a busy day ahead with a large candle order
due to be delivered this evening.
A quiz team has been selling to raise money
to go to one of their competitions.

In addition,
there is a box of refilled jars to
be returned to a customer
as well as
two HUGE (64 oz)jar
candles for another.
I love reusing and recycling
candle jars. They work every
bit as well as a brand new one.

I am happy that each of these
orders can be taken to the same
location this evening and will be
distributed very efficiently.

But first, they have to be
completed.



I will spend today finishing up the teacup candles,









stuffing my white paper gift bags,



putting plastic on the top of some refilled containers,
and loading the car.

The teacups this Spring are Blue and White.
So...connecting with Sally's Blue Monday
Party. You'll find the rest of the Party
Attendees at her blog...The Smiling Sally
Blog.
Thanks, Sally. I had to work a bit
harder to come up with Blue today...but am editing
this post to add the process of pouring a tea candle.
It is so very similar to pouring actual tea,
as you can see.

Also on today's agenda are
Resume Writing for Mikey
and
French for Chelsea.
These among the rest of
their regular
schoolwork.

Jonathan is finished
with school.
However,
I may ask him to spend more time
on his novel writing...
if the computer is available to him.

It is so amazing that one of the three
is completely finished with all of these
many years of homeschooling.
God has been so good to us!

Mikey is so very close to completion.
He has to finish reading a book
and complete some math requirements
and he will be done.
With High School.
Wow!
I have mixed feelings, for sure!

Chelsea and I are going to have to
figure out how to have school without
the boys.

I am very sure we will be
just fine.

Well, none of this will get done
if I don't get started...
so hope you have a very productive
day and that it includes many smiles.

Hugs,

Photobucket

Have a great day!

I am heading out to take Lindsay to the Brigette's for the day, and for me to grocery shop - not much food in the house!

It's an exciting time for you with the boys being done! Congrats to you all! Well done, friend!

I'm sure you and Chelsea will figure it out...and will find you have more time on your hands for fun stuff.

What a great idea it is for a group to sell your beautiful tea cup candles for a fund raising project! Happy Blue Monday, Becky.

Hi Becky,

You've been busy! Tea cups do make great candle holders, don't they? I love repurposing things, too!

How cute & clever a tea cup candle, Becky. I never thought but I should be saving empty candle jars then, right?

Have a great week.
