The first REAL cold front came in today!
When I say "real" I mean one that I could actually tell a change in temperatures.
It was nice and cool and windy and fall-ish today. I LOVED it!
Mom and I went to visit Aunt Mercy today.
Both Mom and Aunt Mercy are at an age where their bodies ache with arthritis but we were able to go outside and enjoy the beautiful weather for a little while.
It felt so good to sit with two women that I love dearly! They both have sacrificed so much for me throughout my life. I am so grateful to have this time to spend with them.
I hope it is still cool tomorrow so I can open up the doors and our one window :).
So, I was being a little lazy in this previous post but thought I would expound today.
We have three dogs...Lacey - 13 years old, Maggie - 8 years old, and Jake - about 7, I think. This post and this post include Jake and this one will include Lacey Girl. Maggie...it is so hard to get her to sit still for a picture, but someday soon I will post about her also.
Lacey wasn't too keen on being still either...
She is the best dog. So sweet and so gentle and full of so much love. She is so very easy to please. She has very few grey hairs for a thirteen year old Lab-mix.
I had two Lab mixes, Max and Dixie, when I met Ronnie. Then one day, at one of his grandson's baseball games, Ronnie opened up his jacket and pulled out this beautiful, brown fur ball. She had and has the most soulful eyes. I instantly fell in love and was shocked that Ronnie got her for me. She has been a real joy in our lives.
We have done a couple of projects around here.
For one, we painted the outside chairs. Nothing wild, just plain ol' black. They were getting rusty so we used rust resistant spray paint...from the dollar store...so, no, I dont expect it to last long, but we shall see. They look really nice, now, though. I haven't taken an after picture, but I will soon.
I also started installing the peel and stick vinyl flooring in the bathroom last Friday.
Key word...started. Today is Tuesday and it is about 2/3's of the way finished.
Our projects are important to us, but life keeps happening and we have really been enjoying it, causing projects to be moved to the back burner, occasionally.
We had the best time Saturday morning. My friend, Veronica, texted me Friday night to let us know her daughter would be playing a soccer game here in BC Saturday morning.
We went but I forgot my dang camera. If I want this blog to be my job, I'm going to have to get a little more serious about it, huh?
Anyway...it was so much fun watching those kids, about 8 or 9 years old, be so intent on soccer!
Jazz (her blog name) did a great job. All the girls did.
And they WON! It was an exciting game. I could kick myself for not having pictures to post!!!
Another life event that kept me from the bathroom floor :) was the Baptism of my nephew's son (in his heart. The boy was about 2 years old when my nephew met his mom. He is now 12).
We were happy to say yes to being his Godparents.
Isn't he a cutie???!!!
We spent Saturday evening sweeping and dusting and getting ready for the Baptismal service and the bar b que dinner we were having here afterwards.
Then Monday we started another project!
Whaaaaaa??? Yep. We are just random project starting peeps.
I'll just give you a sneak peek for now because I need to go to bed soon...we are going thrifting in Lake Jackson tomorrow. I gotta get rested up for that, ha! Hey! It's hard work.
Anyway...here is your sneak peek:
I bet you can guess.
What about you guys? Started any random projects lately? What about wonderful life events?
You know no matter what is going on in your life I hope you all are happy and well!
See you again, soon.
