Aloha Friday - Career Edition!



Aloha Fridays are brought to you by Kailani in beautiful Hawaii at An Island Life where Friday is the day to take it easy while anticipating the coming weekend. Today I'm going to link up, take it easy and ask a question.

I have so much respect for moms who work outside the home and still manage all the challenges of being a mom and running a busy household.  This has definitely led to more and more moms finding a career they can do from home which leads to this week's question:



Do you work at a paid job from home and if so, what do you do?

Mother's Day Is Definitely Over

I know I'm a week late with this but with a sick kid at home for most of last week, let's just say my blogging had to take a back seat.

Anyway, what I've been thinking about is how everyone spent Mother's Day.  For me it was a fantastic weekend of "me" time since my hubby took our 6-year-old daughter to the cottage with him for some bonding time.

I bet they were not even a block up the street when I jumped to my feet and started a major cleaning at the house.  Within a couple of hours the place was sparkling and guess what!  It stayed that way for 3 whole days while they were gone.  Imagine, nothing to pick up, put away or clean up for three whole days!!!!

Then on Sunday night around 6:00 pm the hubs and little one returned.  Within an hour, the hubs decided he needed to make himself some good old-fashioned fried potatoes.  By the time 7:30 rolled around the kitchen was a mess.
There was potato starch sprayed all over the black counter tops and kitchen faucet, the sink had a dirty pile of potato peels in the bottom, there were plates, forks, knives and glasses all over the counter, there was a crusty mess of half burned potato slices stuck to the bottom of the frying pan, the stove top and tile back splash were splattered and the spatula streaked with grease lay in a pool of oil by the sink.

Yup, that was it for me.  Mother's day was officially over!

Aloha Friday - Royals Edition!



Aloha Fridays are brought to you by Kailani in beautiful Hawaii at An Island Life where Friday is the day to take it easy while anticipating the coming weekend. Today I'm going to link up, take it easy and ask a question.


With Charles and Camilla celebrating the Queen's Diamond Jubilee with a visit to Canada next week, we will be making the one-hour trip from our cottage in the hopes of catching a glimpse of them during one of their walkabouts.


Yes, it was exciting to see Kate and William last Summer (who just happened to spend the night in the house across the street from us!), 

but Camilla is my favorite Royal
 (next to the Queen of course!)

which leads to this week's question:

Would you make an effort to get out and see royalty (Hollywood or British) if they were doing a walkabout only an hour from your home?

I've got a sick kid at home this week so I won't be posting.



Here's hoping this is the last "bug" for this school year.

Aloha Friday - Jewelry Edition!



Aloha Fridays are brought to you by Kailani in beautiful Hawaii at An Island Life where Friday is the day to take it easy while anticipating the coming weekend. Today I'm going to link up, take it easy and ask a question.

What is your favorite style of jewelry?

For me, it's diamonds but not just any diamond, Black Alaska Diamonds!  These long slender faceted Hematite Stones were very popular during the 1950's and are my favorite jewelry style.  I've been buying and selling these for years.  Here's a peek at my ring collection:

These beauties I wrote about on my other blog HERE.
The ring in the center has been sold (I don't wear white gold) and it has
 since been replaced with another yellow gold one in a different style
 (not pictured)

Here is one I bought the other day and my first
in 14K yellow gold (all the others are 10K)
Got it for a great price $105.00 all in and no sizing necessary!

So this week I'm asking, "What's your favorite type of jewelry?"

PS:  If any of you have one of these laying around you'd like to sell, please let me know. I'm always buying!
