What to do Weekends #140

Welcome to What to do Weekends Party!
 Your hostesses, Theresa and Linda could not be more thrilled to have you here to kick off the Weekend and the Party!!
Theresa wanted to take a second to ask you for prayers for all the firefighters and the victims of the recent #ValleyFire. I live in Northern California and we are going through the most devastating Fire season in history. My county and several others near by have lost so many homes and lives, as well as, all of their belongings.  Such devastation is so very hard to see. I am okay. but many are not. Please, mention them in your prayers today, tonight, whenever you can. Their fight is just starting. We have pop up evacuation centers everywhere and we rush our clothing and as much supplies as we can to try and aid them. But, I'm afraid it will take alot of time for most. Thank you.
Thank you to all of you who come join us here with your wonderful Crafts, Recipes and DIY incredible creations with us every week~
If you are new to the Party, Welcome! We are so very glad you are here!
We have been pinning away, during the week, so, Please do check out the Party Board!

  1. The wild fires are just terrible. The people there are in my prayers. My sister in law lives in Sonoma, she's fine, too, but there has been so much devastation.

    Thank you for hosting another lovely party, Theresa.

    1. Oh my gosh, Beverly, I live in Sonoma, as well. Glad to hear she is fine, as well. And, so grateful for your prayers. :)
      Such a pleasure to have you, Beverly.

  2. Can you believe it's 2:15 a.m. and I am up and on the computer-woke up and couldn't go back to sleep so, I THINK ABOUT YOU! Theresa- And ohmygoodness that King Ranch Breakfast casserole Wow! Too much for one person to take on but oh, yes I could freeze portions couldn't I? Good Idea-glad I thought of that girls.
    (be safe everyone!)

    1. Jonell, as you know, I THINK OF YOU, TOO! Hugs, dear friend. Yes, I agree, the freezer is the perfect answer! Sounds like we share the same type of sleep patterns, as well. ;)
      Blessings to you,

  3. What wonderful features this week - and I like Linda's bonus feature too! I've been saddened to hear about the terrible fires and everyone involved is in our prayers. I'm glad you are okay. This week I've shared a Spiced Apple and Almond Cake that is perfect for fall. Thank you for hosting the party!

    1. April, Thank you so much for your kind words. So thoughtful of you. Glad to hear that you're lifting them up in prayer. Can't wait to try your Spiced Apple and Almond cake!
      :) Theresa
