Yesterday I took the day off and spent it in Fort Worth visiting family. I first went to my sister's house (Deanie) bearing Diet Cokes from Sonic. It has been SO long since we had even seen each other save for the Quad Party here on March 3rd - and that doesn't really count since there were so many people and we couldn't TALK! She is a Grandmother like few others I have ever met! She is truly the GRAND in the word! In 1998 she bought a pack and play to have at her house for all the little babies that have come along since then. Yesterday she handed off the
Next I picked up my mother at the beauty shop and we had lunch at Chili's. She LOVES their loaded baked potato soup! I had soup and salad which is exactly what I ordered LAST Friday when Amber and I ate out. We hit up Tuesday morning on a Friday afternoon and made out with some good buys.
THIS is what I brought home with me - gifted by another sister, Nita!
(She is the one with the beautiful Watt Pottery collection!)
I had never had Pork Rinds with Picante Sauce before!
It is DELICIOUS!!! Deanie says cream cheese mixed with the picante sauce is good, too!
I stopped to visit with the three oldest grandchildren on my way home.
The water balloons and pump I bought for them was a huge success!
We played games and had contests......
......and Faith ALWAYS grabs my camera and shoots away!
She may be a famous photographer some day!
I came home to find this lovely care package waiting for me!
It is from one of my favorite in all the world blogger friends!
She is a character and Louis Dean loves her as much as I do!
So I went to bed encouraged by all the acts of kindness yesterday!
And I needed them to reflect on TODAY as I once again ventured out to the camper - cleaning supplies in hand!
While I cleaned the kitchen area Louis Dean started taking up the carpet.
It was REALLY nasty!!!
Fortunately there is vinyl underneath......although we will most likely put new flooring over it. Maybe.
This section of flooring must be replaced. It is in front of the fridge.
I love the expression on Louis Dean's face as he shows me some other damaged places! Thankfully I have never seen anything he cannot fix!
(This is part of the slide out extra room - where the table and benches go.)
We only spent a couple of hours out there this time. He has to think about the next moves and all that will entail. He doesn't want to start anything until he has a whole week to work on it.
SO.....we retired to the BACK yard to do a little damage control.
This is his work bench. Yes. It IS under there somewhere!
I think we have done our due today. It's time to clean up and head to church.
Tomorrow is another day and we still have the yard to do!
Thank goodness we will be gone next week and can rest up!
