I'm enjoying the summer as it flies by.
It seems like each day is different than the day that went before, so "routine" isn't part of my vocabulary lately. That's OK. Things are rolling along nicely and I'm completely surprised that we're already into the middle of July. I have some friends who are miserable with the hot weather and being somewhat confined indoors most of the time. I'm not one of them. I thrive with the sunshine, even if I'm cloistered indoors with the A/C roaring and dodging mosquitoes when I dart to the mailbox and back.
This weekend Lil' Mama is to be a Bridesmaid in a summer wedding. and Haylee Kate is to be the Flower Girl. I think being a Flower Girl is a
Thinking about weddings.
I was once at a formal, church wedding and when the young groom turned to face the minister (which meant his back was to the audience) he had a sticky note on the back of his tux that said, "HELP ME!". Obviously a prank by one of the friends. *giggle

Most of our 4th of July celebration was indoors,
but when we ventured out to watch the fireworks in the evening, these nasty Suckers found me. My ankles and calves got the worst abuse and I've been itching and then scratching ever since. I've even had trouble sleeping at night due to the itching.
Do they work?

Last Sunday morning, after church, many of our friends gathered around Lil' Mama and her fiance' to admire her ring and congratulate them on their engagement. Fiance's name is "Izaiha", pronounced like the biblical name, "Isaiah". I began to make the introductions . . .
Wait for this.
It's that good/bad. . .
Still waiting? . . .
Here it is -
I introduced the fiance' to our friends, calling him "ELIJAH", rather than "Izaiha". Being the good guy he is, he responded, "Close enough" and laughed it off.

Remember the handsome young airman I've mentioned several times? It looks like he's gonna be stickin' around.

It's been a busy week on the bayou, playing "catch up" after being away for a week. Not complaining, just stating a fact. . .
It seems that Mom and my sister did very well while we were away. My sister also reported that Boudxy was a "very good and smart boy". Extra treats for Boudxy!!
While we were away Mom had to miss her weekly hair appointment - that's happened once before and didn't seem to be a big deal. This time it WAS a big deal. She refused to go to church Sunday because of her hair. I understand that, however during the entire weekend she was very withdrawn. I suspected perhaps she was angry that we had not taken her with us on vacation. I talked with her and tried to "draw her out". She didn't seem angry. Hmmm? Then on Monday she refused to come to the table for dinner, saying "I look awful and don't want to leave my room". It was her hair that was causing all the angst. I brought her dinner to her on a tray, but explained that after her hair appnt on Thursday we'd need to go back to eating dinner with the family.
Yesterday was "Beauty Shop Day". Afterwards we went to lunch, then for ice cream, and on to the Library. She looks beautiful and seems right back on track.
How we look really affects how we feel.
I've always felt that way.

I had intended to blog while on vacation, but found I didn't have the know-how for blogging using my ipad, sooooooo... Here's a "photo journal" of a blessed week spent at Orange Beach AL with most of our "kids" and all our Granddolls, as well as my Favorite SIL. Truly, Heaven-came-down-to-earth it was such a good time!

"thick", as my Daddy always said.
"Things that make you go, Hmmmm."

Clearing the cobwebs out of my mind today...
So here goes -
- We had another "snake incident". Another 2 ft black snake slithered across the patio yesterday. Once again Mister did NOT get the snake. I remained calm - didn't want to use my energy to throw a Hissy Fit, so just went on about my business. Mister needs a new knee so he only has one speed - SLOW. I think the neighborhood snakes have figured that out. That's why they're hangin' out at our house.
- TX, HK's Dad, is here visiting with us for a few days. HK is gonna be soooooo spoiled by all this extra attention. Still, glad she is getting to visit with him, and him with her. It's gotta be a difficult situation for TX and Lil' Mama. Heaven only knows I could never have behaved so maturely at their age. Guess parenting a baby at such a young age "grows you up" quicker.
- Mom recieved 2 HUGE bags of candy from our son and DIL for her birthday. She is eating this candy as fast as she can. Tonight she wouldn't even come to the table for dinner because she had been eating candy all afternoon. I guess when you're 85 you can do what you want.
- I wish I had a margarita, but I don't.
- One more week till VACATION!!

June 1, Sunday
(Photo journaling the first day of each month.)
I think it will be fun to look back over the year to see how I spent the first day of each month. If you did this please let me know so I can be sure to visit you.
