We were about to leave for church when we noticed the Carolina Jasmine was blooming this morning!
It really is SPRING in Texas!
It was a beautiful day!
A good day to go to church!
I missed last Sunday since I was in San Antonio for our Siblings Getaway.
The kids never fail to search out Pastor Doug and give him a big hug!
We usually are the last to arrive so we must park far away!
Harrison was way out in front of us!
Arby's for an easy Sunday lunch!!
Mike stayed home with Kailey since she wasn't feeling well.
We sent an Arby's home with Amber for them.
It was Trystan's turn to come home with us and spend the night.
She has been patiently waiting for weeks and weeks.
We shopped Lowe's for some bedding plants and garden things.
She was the darling of the nursery and another elderly couple were totally enchanted with her!
We met this sweet lady and her husband and spent quite a few minutes visiting with each other.
She is 82 and her husband is 80 and they have been married 14 years. Louis Dean and I will be married 12 years this June so we swapped our stories right there in Lowe's!
Trystan was ready to get home and take a nap and that's just what we did!
She and I both slept for a couple of hours and woke up ready to get outside and do something!
I spread the red cedar mulch in the area I cleaned up yesterday.
I have been thinking that are would make a nice secret hideaway for the grands.
Under the ladder, I put down a rubber door mat and covered that with a rug.
Then I hung up green fabric to create a little covering.
Sure enough!!! Trystan loved it and went off to get her tea things, crackers and cheese to have her very own private tea party!
We had the nicest Sunday!
Trystan enjoyed her afternoon with MeeMaw and Granddad all by herself.
From time to time, she would say, "What do you think the other kids are doing right now?"
She left the tea sets out there so they could all play together tomorrow with them.
Trystan had every bit of Granddad's attention!
She didn't have to share him with anyone!!
We got a lot done today.
Louis Dean bought two trumpet vines and planted them.
Trystan had picked up several bedding plants and she put them in pots.
I strung up some more lights in the garden and then Louis Dean poured us a glass of wine.
Trystan added a big jolt of joy to our day!
It was dark when we went in to prepare dinner.
Trystan's favorite is green pasta and green pasta was what she got!
I used some green spinach egg noodles plus the Basil Pesto from Costco. We also had a garden salad and candied carrots.
We ate at the den table and watched Singing in the Rain for our evening entertainment.
She enjoyed the dancing and made several quips about the movie.
"That girl's voice sounds squeaky."
Good classical entertainment!!
Trystan went off to bed and we tuned in to the end of the Oscars.
Man!!! Now THAT was entertaining!!!
