A few weeks back when E was home one weekend we went to a chinese place for lunch. They always bring fortune cookies when we’re done, which Don and I hardly ever look at…..he doesn’t like them much and I think the fortunes are never really fortunes. E opened hers [...]

“they’re goin’ North, the rush is on”
It’s been a bit of a whirlwind around here the past few days. We spent the weekend in Jackson celebrating my dad’s birthday, then helping son pack some of his stuff to bring home and store for a while. He came in Sunday evening [...]

“say it for always”
I saw this meme over at Annie’s and decided to jump in and do it too! It’s been sort of a blah Friday for me so this seemed to work for me today.
Where is your cell phone? Plugged into the wall charger here at Stacy’s house!
Your significant other? [...]

I’ve found another reading challenge I’m going to do, Lynne is hosting and calling it I Heard it Through the Grapevine. This one will be easy enough to handle I think, 3 books between May and the end of November that have been recommended in some [...]

“tuppence a bag”
I love to have bird feeders out and watch the birds come by to eat……I don’t like the squirrels so one of my feeders is a squirrel proof one! Recently I bought a thistle feeder for finches and it happens to be sort of a sock looking tube thing which [...]

Saturday morning before we left Houston we went to Grayson’s t-ball game. I’d forgotten how much fun a t-ball game can be! Everyone gets to bat, everyone gets to play in the field and sometimes 6 of them all go after a ball that’s been hit! It’s a [...]

“are you ready for a brand new beat”
I’ve been gone and not keeping up with blog reading like I should. I just noticed that Susanne is giving away a copy of the Steven Curtis Chapman cd! It’s been done as a give away several times now and you might [...]

I’ve been having fun this past week being in Houston seeing new baby Henry and helping out just a bit. I’m not sure I was very much help but I’ve sure enjoyed being here. We did just a bit of cooking, I finished up sewing some burp cloths and mostly [...]

Oh and you thought that other part was all you’d have to read didn’t you! That was only half of it! I took a relatively easy, simple, shortish meme and made it difficult and way too long but now that I did part of it, I just don’t think I [...]

I’ve seen this on a few blogs so I’m totally into swiping/stealing borrowing today!
It’s called the “Have you ever” meme… I’m taking part of it to do now, just to be different I’m giving added info on my answers although it could be more than you wanted to know. But it might [...]

“and never to part”
As I was driving into Houston yesterday my son called to give me directions to the hospital. I asked him if Grayson and Ava Clair had seen the baby and what they thought about him. He told me they had come to the hospital on Saturday to [...]

Oh my… baby Henry decided to be born during the night two weeks early! That was about a week before they would have induced but he’s here and they are all doing good from what I can tell on the phone. I haven’t seen him yet, nor any pictures. [...]

I was reminded of this song when I watched Idol the other night and that is probably my favorite version of it. It was used on a tv show a few years ago, pretend points if you remember which one! (doctor show is my hint)

Stacy and I went shopping this past Saturday while some of the guys played golf. They actually got back to her house before we did and when we drove up we noticed that it looked like nothing but trucks around! With the price of gas you’d think some of us [...]
