Today Louis Dean and I celebrated the little things that mean so much to us!
Laughing over the funny Facebook posting from our friends.....
Reading the Bible together and joining our hearts in prayer.....
Enjoying our book on Henry Fonda.......
Little things, maybe.
I will be having a little foot surgery on Thursday and the papers given to me said 'No Nail Polish!'
That meant a trip to the salon for a pedicure.
I took Louis Dean with me!
He tried to hide his face!!!!
Too late!!! I already had a free shot!!!
We devoted the afternoon to running our errands.
The application for Medicaid (for my mother) was returned to me so I picked that up today and turned around and mailed it to the CORRECT address! It seems the US Government does not do a good job keeping their websites current. The address was changed over ONE YEAR ago and yet it STILL lists a PO Box in Midland, Texas!!! Not to mention, it took nearly half an hour on the phone to get the CORRECT ADDRESS! Even the person helping me didn't know! HE suggested I visit the official website!!! HAHAHAHA!!
In keeping with the spirit of a Tuesday - which is about all there was to it today - no movie, no art, no Ruth Ann - Louis Dean and I stopped in at the Goodwill for a minute!
I was in search of a lamp shade for the wine bottle light I bought last week.
Louis Dean found a brand new in the box never opened Hot Air Popcorn Popper.
He was excited! Doesn't take much, folks!
I also scored with this tall HEAVY lamp for the gazebo!
We needed one that wouldn't topple over with the wind.
We've just about got the gazebo all dressed and done.
I looked over and saw the microwave and asked LD what the stickers were for.
The green one is for 30 seconds and the pink one is STOP.
Since we pulled the table out to the gazebo, I had room to pull an old library index card table out of the alcove in the sewing room and free up some area back there.
I found things I forgot I had!!
I officially have enough denim jeans to whack up and turn into quilts to last me the rest of my life!!
I also found a multitude of other things like a Bedazzler and loads of dazzle to go with it!!
Little bottles of glue were tucked away in places I haven't seen in awhile!
I need to get in here and do some real work in organizing and sorting......
I can see the puzzles I did long years ago stapled them to the cedar walls.
I should not have to buy any more craft supplies EVER again!
It's hard to believe my sewing machine used to fit in this tiny sliver of space and I sewed a KING SIZE quilt in here!!! You can see my desk and normal blogging spot from this view.
The kids will love exploring and hiding in here!!
I haven't mentioned it publicly yet but several weeks ago we gave Lucy to someone else.
This is where her kennel used to be. I loved her - we BOTH did - but our nerves just couldn't handle the barking at Louis Dean every single time he stood up. Plus she had taken to barking at him even when she was in her kennel if he passed by. Maddie opted to be a Country Cat and is now living in the barn down at my stepson's ranch. So we are critter free and I have to admit that we are happy about that. Now if we can convince the possums around here that just because a door is left open - it does NOT mean they are welcome to come in!!! In cleaning this sewing room alcove, I did, indeed, find possum poop!!!
Louis Dean and I decided to hole up in our gazebo this evening!
It began to rain lightly so we pulled the rain curtains together and I put some pork chops on to grill.
I baked potatoes to go with them along with black eyed peas and poblano peppers stuffed with cream cheese and wrapped in bacon.
It was DELICIOUS!!!!
So here's my blogging spot for tonight!
Louis Dean is cheering you with his glass of wine - from a box!
He says it was a very good HOUR!
