Louis Dean and I slept like babies last night!
It was 10:00 - okay! - AFTER 10:00 before we were up.
The aroma of sausage, bacon and all things 'breakfast' brought us out of their amazing guest room and into the light of a Saturday in Fort Worth!
Before I took this picture, Louis Dean had swabbed both cheeks as had Nita a few hours earlier and the kits were addressed, stamped and mailed off to get their DNA results.
Louis Dean got into the spirit of it all and has begun to research his family tree!
We are expecting Native American in his results as he IS a card carrying Cherokee Native American.
After breakfast Nita and I continued some of our research - I had brought two laptops so - in addition to Nita's home computer - we ALL three had access to the Internet to research our 'roots!'
Nita and Mike have THE most interesting home I have ever been in!!
I chose to feature the living room for this visit.
It is a BEAUTIFUL room!
So many pretty things to look at and take in.
Nita and Mike have true antiques!
I specialize in 'debris!'
Their home is chock full of all kinds of treasures!
This desk was handmade by our Uncle Harry - Aunt Irene's husband!
Louis Dean and I were finally off to do the rest of Mother's wardrobe shopping!!
Stein Mart and Walmart finished it up and then we drove over to deliver all the merchandise!!
She loved it all!!
She REALLY loved this outfit!!!
I bought things that would mix and match!
It was a win! WIN!!!
I still need to get one pair of slide in shoes but that will happen in the next week or so!
She was one happy lady!!!
This was the outfit she decided to keep on!
EVERYTHING I bought - FIT!!!
AND she liked it ALL!!!
4 pairs of pants - 1 white and 1 black of really good quality - and 2 pair of casual pants.
6 tops that mix and match + a pair of Nike sandals + some lingerie!
She was a happy camper!
My job here was done and Louis Dean and I headed for home.
Alas, our car A/C is quirky and only works if you hit a bump and it connects!
Soooooo.......we drove home with me hitting every single bump in the road I could find and 1/3 of the way - the A/C came on and STAYED on until we pulled up in our driveway!
Louis Dean is going to try and figure this thing out!
In the mean time - we unloaded, put up and sat a spell before he went to his projects and I tackled the front rose/rosemary/honeysuckle flower bed in front of the house by the porch and in front of his music room and the guest room! DONE......nearly! I will still have to mulch and weed eat the honeysuckle back after church tomorrow.
All in all - we really needed this Fort Worth weekend and spending time with my siblings!
I came home renewed and refreshed!
And regarding my fatigue - yes, I am still concerned but perhaps it is simply a matter of aging.
I had thyroid cancer - aggressive cancer at that - back 27 years ago. So I have no thyroid and have been on medication ever since 1989. I will be getting a full panel of blood work and am looking forward to visiting with Dr. Suma Abraham - my doctor for so many years that I knew her before she had four children - who are all now in high school and college!! I am really a fan of long term relationships!!!
Tomorrow is Palm Sunday!
