Another surprise....

The week-end is past now, and another week has begun.  Happy Monday to you!

We continue to find ways to fill our week-ends around here.:-)  For me, Saturday was time for our District UMW Day Apart event.  This is an event that was my responsibility to plan for the past four years.  This year, it was someone else's role, so I was able to attend without the stress of being the one in charge.

Attendance incentives are given at the special District events (two) during the year.  What a surprise it was to me on Saturday when my ticket number was drawn!

A pretty gift bag....

....with this inside....

Along with this devotional book.

For you, Diana!:-)

I made another stop on my way home at my favorite super market.  Look what is inside!  The is just tailor made for you, Diana!:-)

Thank you for reading.  I appreciate your comments.
