Weekend Randoms...

My husband and I got the pleasure of attending the Alzheimer's memorial ball on Saturday night with a great group of people.  Incredibly, over $600,000 was raised by this one event.  This is a cause that is very close to my heart as my paternal grandmother passed away recently after struggling from the disease for a number of years.  It is such a devastating disease that is incredibly hard to watch take over someone's mind and body.  I think of my grandmother often and miss her greatly everyday.

The view from our room was amazing.

I just couldn't resist taking a picture of the polishing shoe mitt.  I have to say, I have never stayed in a fancy enough hotel to have a polishing mitt.  
At my grandmother's funeral, her four grandkids sent an assortment of plants instead of flowers.  Each of us now has a plant and I am hoping and praying that I can keep this one alive.  It's so nice to have a living plant around in remembrance of someone special.  We also have grasses planted outside our house that were given by a family friend at my grandfather's viewing.  Not only are they at our current house, but we also had some at our previous house.

On a lighter note, we also carved out some time on Sunday to till and expand our garden.
My husband made me try the tiller, which lasted a whole 30 seconds.  I do not recommend tilling a garden in flip flops!  That was my excuse to pass the job along to my husband.
I also worked on another project for my daughter's room, which I'm hoping to share later on in the week.
We had such a great weekend, until we came home and realized our 10 year old Tabby was missing. He's an inside cat and we believe my son left the door open and he got out.   When he's gotten out in the past he's always came back meowing at the side door.  Well, this time we haven't been so lucky.   Please pray that he's safe and comes home soon.
