Celebration Sunday and a late TUSAL

We celebrated Father's Day and my birthday on Sunday - what a great day!
We were going to make breakfast together, but slept in instead.  After going to church, I started getting food ready for the mini bbq gathering we were having that afternoon.  My chosen sister, Cori, surprised me by showing up early.  She told me I had five minutes to finish up what I was doing and grab my purse.  I thought she was kidding, but no, she meant business!  Now I knew she had a date at the spa with a friend, but that friend was actually lucky me!  She had planned this with DH's approval and he insisted it be on my birthday, even though it was his day too.  He's that kind of guy, he's a keeper!
I was scheduled for a total body massage and a pedicure.  Wow, what a treat, it was WoNdErFuL!  I also got to enjoy a delicious warm brownie and a mimosa, can't go wrong there.

 So Cori, if you ever read this, thank you so much for a absolutely wonderful birthday surprise.  I love surprising family and friends, so what a treat to receive it!  I love you, my sister!

As for some other goodies, my mil gave me a stand and a new light for stitching, thanks Gammy!  Maybe I'll actually get my act together and start my HAED - after the move.

 Oops, I totally forgot to post June's TUSAL, so here it is...
