The day after getting to Virginia I had lunch with long-time (I didn't say OLD) friend Marsha. I hadn't seen her in three years or so, and it was fun to catch up on our lives in between. We compared Grandma notes, talked a little about our respective businesses, and had a lovely buffet in a beautiful setting. One of the nice interludes of life...
We've been on the edge of the severe weather here in Texas. Just north of us it's been downright deadly; what we've gotten are some pretty energetic storms and a lot of water in the road and a lush green landscape that we are just not used to in San Antonio! I'm trying to figure out how we can bottle and save some of this for next spring and summer when we'll probably revert to our crunchy taupe lawns and fields.
Bethany graduates this week! Wednesday night she will join five other homeschooled seniors for the ceremony and reception that caps off her high school education. We're proud of her and are SO glad that she'll be sticking around a while so we can continue to enjoy the wonderful young woman she's becoming...
And for the reception I'll be providing a big chunk of the cookie spread--fifteen dozen! So don't come here looking for any posts! Drop by if you want to help :-)
My de-cluttering efforts continue. I'm hoping to accomplish a lot more before Dirk starts painting later this week. I really want a whole new fresh feel in this house! The Papa is out buying the paint as I write and so I guess that means I'm committed to the colors I chose? I'm a little shaky, but forging ahead!
Tomorrow our family will gather at Granny's for our Memorial Day cookout. Rain is threatening, but we'll make adjustments as necessary. Hopefully we'll get some good pictures of the little ones. Watermelon! I'll get watermelon! That always makes for great pictures!
Well...the skies outside are blackening again and I need to get out and protect some of the porch plants. Hope all of you are enjoying your Sunday and the long weekend!
