Saturday Snapshots

It's has been a beautiful, windy day here in south Texas, but still HOT!

So, I am inside :)

I am wrapping my mind around tidying up the house for a get-together we are having this weekend. 

It isn't that I don't want to do it.   I am just kind of pre-occupied.

I went for a job interview this week!  Yay!!  Gotta wait and see, now.  Don't get me wrong.  I won't be terribly heartbroken if I don't get it, but it seems like a good work environment with good, friendly, people doing good things for others.  I would love to be a part of that.  Plus, the process seems very similar to my experience.  Seems like a good fit, you know?

I cannot beleive I am saying this after being foot loose and fancy free for almost 4 years, but I am really looking forward to a schedule and a challenge and...yeah...a paycheck too. ha!

So, I have not done a Saturday Snapshots post in a while.  It's Wednesday, but what the heck.

We have been having smoothies every morning for breakfast, so we decided to have our favorite - bacon and eggs - on Saturday morning. 

Jake and Maggie love bacon!  They don't have to beg long.  How can I resist this face??

Little did I know Ronnie has been thinking a lot about sprucing up the curb appeal of our little studio.  It still looks very much like a commercial building on the outside.  The front is brick and the rest is siding.  We plan on replacing the siding...someday.

For now, though, Ronnie wanted to start with a little landscaping...here...

This is the front "yard" even though there is no grass.  Anybody out there have a concrete front yard, aka, a parking lot??  The fence there is the fence to the dog run and there is only about eight inches of space between the concrete and the fence. 

We had no idea what we wanted to do or what would even grow in there, so we headed out to our favorite nursery here in town, Second Nature.

We spoke with a very knowledgeable young lady and we got these, Vincas (I think):

As we were coming back home we noticed a tiny kitten trying to cross the busy highway.  We pulled over and tried to catch it, but it was too wild and too fast. 

This sweet young man on a motorcycle even stopped to help us.  He had just returned from Afghanistan a few weeks before.  Ronnie thanked him for his service and he said, "No problem, it was an honor sir."  I thought, "Awww" but then I thought about the recent incident with the American Idol contestant.  I try not to be cynical, though, and decided to take him at his word.  The kitty got away and the Motor-cycle GI went on his way.  We had supper with mom and then went to visit with Pam and Leo, Mel and the twins while they ate.

Then it was time!! 

It was karaoke time.

I don't think Maggie liked it, though.

Oh, the despair. :)

But Jake...he got right in there and sang with us. (Please excuse the poor lighting.)

He sings so pretty!!  He's a "Supa Star"!!

What lucky folks we are.
