Is it really Thursday

Hi, everyone. I cannot believe it's already Thursday. My son has to go back to Florida on Sunday, way too soon. We have been eating BBQ leftovers since the 4th. (his choice) So much meat. We went out last night for something different and Tuesday night we had one of his very favorite meals, po' boys.

 These are not the cold cut po' boy. My dad had a favorite place in New Orleans where he and my mom used to get them. Later years she developed her own recipe from what they used to eat.  The whole family loves them so we had a crowd of 12 for these. I never can tell how much meat I need so needless to say there will be plenty of leftovers to freeze. Then one day we can enjoy them again without cooking.

Ok, this post is really not about food. My sister that came to the BBQ from Houston brought me a present. She designs and makes jewelry. (very well I might add) She made me a cute link bracelet. (she made the links by hand out of sterling wire) It's so light and comfortable. I just love it.

So the reason I started this post, I wanted to make her a thank you. She forgets things just like I do (I think we're twins 3 years apart) I made her a little post it note cover. So now she has paper and pen all in one. I'm also sending her some no glue gable boxes she can fold together to give her customers with their jewelry purchases.

Here is the note cover:

She loves yellow and lime green. She has a very bright personality.

And here is the fabulous bracelet.

Don't you love it?

I'm going to enter this note cover in DL.Arts Thankful Thursday challenge #136 - thank you

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs and God bless. Stephanie
