Outside my window... My crepe myrtle is blooming. I am amazed at the strength and persistence of plants and trees that thrive in heat and still look beautiful.
I am thinking... that I have to be on my toes this week. My grandsons are visiting, and I want them to have a great time.
In order for that to happen I need to:
*hook up the DVD player in the little house so they can sleep in the bunk beds out there with their grandfather.
*buy plenty of pancake mix and syrup
*buy chocolate milk (sshh… don’t tell their mother)
*find out who sells pokemon collector’s cards- I will go to any length to do this- I can not fail.
Surely it can’t be any harder than the fighting I did for Cabbage Patch Dolls (early 80’s) with my friend JB?
*locate the nearest raspa stand (snow cone stand)
*buy a sack of Blue Bell ice cream cups (sshh…don’t tell their mother)
*see if my oldest grandson (age 6) can teach me to play chess
If my father had anything to say about it, he would teach them to drive. (sshh…don’t tell their mother)
I am thankful for... seeing friends at a baby shower I helped host this morning.
What was the best part? Sitting around the table when it was over, shoes off, laughing and visiting.
From the kitchen... I know I am a one trick pony, but if not for Sister Schubert cinnamon rolls, I would be in deep shower food/entertaining trouble.
I was wearing... black linen cropped pants, a turquoise , white and black top, turquoise beads and earrings, and black sandals.
I am creating...a list for fall planting . We are going to San Antonio this weekend for a wedding, and I want to visit the nursery owned by the garden guy on KTSA talk radio. He sounds so reassuring. He makes me think I can do it too!
I am going...to stay in the moment.
I am grateful for… anyone who stops by my blog and takes the time out of their day to read. Thank you.
I am reading... The 19th Wife.
I am hoping... that I get the energy and drive to begin creating a wildflower bed. Yikes.
I am hearing… songs from my IPod..
Around the house.... I see things that offer comfort and welcome.
