You heard it...my sigh of relief. My last post explained how this was one of those weeks when things were so busy that I just wanted to get through it. Well, I am finally through it. After one of the busiest days I can ever remember, I am sitting on the sofa wondering how I ever got it all done.
With my piano recital scheduled for tonight, most of this week was spent readying the house and yard. Today there was so much to do that I didn't think I would get it all done. I spent the morning at Catie's awards ceremony, sang in a funeral this afternoon, and hosted a recital tonight. How's that for a busy day!
I couldn't have accomplished all of this without my wonderful family helping out. John worked super hard this week to finish putting out all of the mulch in the back yard. The girls pitched in on all of the house preparations, and my mom and dad came over to lend a hand. What would I do without all of them?
Mom and Dad stopped to pose for a quick picture after all of the work was done.
I rearranged the sunroom with all of the furniture facing the piano room for the recital.
With the sofa out of the way, it was easier to get a picture of the table along the back wall.
As you can see from this picture, it rained this evening so the reception had to be moved from the patio to the great room.
Thanks to mom's huge hydrangea, I had plenty of blooms to use throughout the house.
I only have several students this year, so the recital was very informal.
When I say informal, I really mean it. I just happened to look down at my own daughter's feet and noticed that she wasn't even wearing shoes!! I didn't mean for it to be that informal.
After all of John and Dad's work on the landscaping, we couldn't even use the patio for the refreshments.
Everything turned out perfect anyway. My students did a wonderful job and all of the guests really enjoyed themselves. I couldn't have asked for a better evening. Now, I think I will crawl into my soft bed and thank the Lord for blessing me with my wonderful family who helped me get through this busy week.
