Weekend Wrap and Countdown to Fun

Good Monday morning everyone! Before I start my post, let me pause and ask for a prayer from you all for my mother-in-law, Claudette, who is waiting on biopsy results. She has not been feeling well for weeks and had a biopsy of two lymph nodes Friday, let’s pray they come back negative!

Alright, this weekend was busy with family work and fun, starting with attending to MoMo’s house since she’s been under the weather. My son Chris showed up which came in handy since we had a hose come loose from the washer and a small flood to contend with. Since he works for Belfour Restoration, he knew just what to do! It is always nice to have him there to help his dad with the heavy-duty stuff. I folded several loads of laundry (actually I hung it) and cleaned things in the kitchen and vacuumed all the dust and dog hair that accumulates on a regular since she has a long-haired chihuahua.  After that, we checked out my Dad’s new roof and facia he had installed on Wednesday and Thursday this week. It looked pretty good, yet they have some finishing touches to attend to today. Once that was done, we went home and cleaned up for dinner and our son Chris, Bubba, and Connie and Dave and I went out to Joes Crab Shack and had a better than usual experience there.

Christopher is hungry, can you tell?!

There have been times that their food was not that great, however this time, it was better. We enjoyed crab nachos, everyone else but me enjoyed crab legs, I got lobster tails, sweet potato fries (yum) and broccoli, in an effort to be good, although the nachos were pretty rich. (I didn’t have too many though).

Yesterday, I went to my neighbor Kim’s house who’s yard looks like what I imagine the Garden of Eden looked like. Anyway, she was trimming her many plants and offered me some sweet potato vines of three different colors, and while I was there, also gave me three baby cactus! I was so happy to have these new additions to my yard! She has so many plants and trees I can’t name them all, but here are some pics I took while I was there.

Sorry that  I have not posted since last Wednesday, my brain must already be on vacation since the countdown has begun to my Galveston trip coming up Thursday evening! I’m so excited to go have fun with the ladies and especially to get to meet Roxy (The Oily Guru), she lives in Galveston and is actually going to be a mile from where I’m staying with friends. My sister-in-law Connie did a fabulous, summery nail job on me yesterday to get me ready for the trip.

Since I didn’t want to mess up my new nail job, I only planted one of the vines, I have many more to go and also the cactus needs to be put in their pots. I cannot wait to see how the addition of these vines may add beauty to my beds in the yards.

Well, I must go get ready for the workday, I hope you all have a fabulous Monday and don’t forget my prayer request. I will be running like a chicken with my head cut-off getting ready for the trip… I don’t want to forget anything you know! Happy Monday!

PS: Don’t forget the eclipse today!!

  1. You can’t be going to Roxie’s when this storm is coming (I’m reading this Thursday Night)?? I just hope everyone is safe! I’ll say a prayer for your Mother-in-law, please pray for my hubby, he had more tests and they came back positive.. (that’s why I haven’t blogged lately). Not good! Take care Kim!! <3

    1. No, not going to Roxie’s and can’t convince her to leave either! I’ll pray for your husband and you say an extra prayer for the Texas coast that the storm weakens and lives are spared.
      Thank you for the prayers for Claudette!
