Monday Monday

Rest and relaxation comes after Christmas Day.  Don't have to cook today because there are leftovers from Christmas Day.  I stare at the Christmas tree, the Christmas wreath, the Christmas decorations wanting to clear everything out today. But I'll do it tomorrow.  Enjoying looking at my Christmas pictures taken on Christmas Day.

It has rained for 2 days and nights. New pj's are really getting a work out!! Thank you!

Entertaining myself by blog surfing and see what y'all  and y'all are up to. It's like reading a good book.

Let's get the New Year on!

It's close. 9 days to go until the family crowds, the oohing and ahhing over gifts, the non-stop foods, the tree skirt in full view from an empty floor under the tree. These are the reasons for all the hustle and bustle.

And, Christmas tree cookies of which I have eaten dozens and dozens of in the last week and have literally made people eat them with me and even insisted they take some home.


The fun of wrapping papers spread out all over the floor to wrap those special choosen gifts for those special people to place under the tree for the big day.

The Christmas book that we  read every year on Christmas Day before we open the gifts. Because, after all,  it's HIS birthday.

And, it's the reason for the season, for the spirit, for the giving that we can celebrate, rejoice, worship, and praise The Newborn King.

Through the woods

A nice fall day calls for some outside time in the wilderness. With a hike thru the woods with Jennifer, Chris, Larry and me.

It's late evening and the sun is beginning to set.

Some walking, some riding while feeding the deer along the way. Jennifer did see one deer ahead of her as she drove thru the wooded path.

Some falling and laughing. That would be me. Tripping on a something and down I went but making sure my camera was safe. Got to take those pictures you know.

now, where is my camera?

After a long hike and a couple bruises on me,  it's time to head back to the house.

Happy Birthday Trent

A little birthday celebration party.

Trent turned 26.

His request:  Lunch at Chili's. We met there.

He was announced as the birthday guest with the happy birthday song sung by the waitresses and his very own hot fudge cake with ice cream.  He did not want to be acknowledged, but he would enjoy the cake.

Brandon and Julie laughing  while Trent is being serenaded by the whole restaurant.

Jennifer and Chris watching.

His 2nd request: birthday cake from Gambino's.

A happy  birthday to Trent with cake, presents, and family.

While in Florida . . .

A little sight-seeing going on at the beach and Harbor Village after and before the wedding. The  beach and weather couldn't have  been better. It was beautiful.
Walking thru Harbor Village we saw a lot of hot stuff. But this boat was named HotStuff. We ate at Harry T's, but no pictures. Don't know what I was thinking of not getting any picture. But the  very extra large nacho appetizer piled sky-high with all the fillings was more than enough to feed 8 of his at 10pm at nite and was delicious.

Back view of some of our group. Peggy, Cheryl, Julie, Brandon while walking down the boardwalk at Harbor Village.
And Trent, Brandon, Julie taking in all the sites.
And more walking

It made for a very nice time.

Tis the Season

I'm liking me some football. We'll be cheering on the Saints and the LSU tigers.

With a little bit of clothing attire to match.  Have you seen the collegiate  pom-pom knit gloves, especially  in purple and gold? I like them. But probably wouldn't wear them in public.  I'll just stick to my saints and lsu's tees and shorts. Oh and matching flip flops.

Here's to the fans.

Is there a doctor in the house?


But maybe one day.

Jennifer is continuing her nursing education. When she grows up she wants to be a doctor.

Some People

Some people are living the good life this week.
That would be Brandon and Julie on a weeks vacation.

This is the view from their balcony in Destin.

They are texting me pictures, knowing I love the beach. 

Looks like they are not the only ones on a last vacation before school starts back.
Wish i was there!

It's Jennifer Day

Happy Birthday Jennifer. Her 28th one.

Have a Happy Day.

Jennifer and Chris just bought a new house

and is in the middle of planning a wedding. They picked out a few wedding/new house items for me to get.

Really cute Noritake casual china! 

And Pfaltzgraff silverware.  And I'm sure I'll add a few other things for them.

And this is how you play putt putt golf and win --- with your eyes closed.
