Random Pics From The Week....

Sometimes I feel just like the screen from my camera....

Last Sunday at the NICU - holding Kailey!

It took two to change Trystan's diaper!
I am certain they will have this chore down pat in no time!
And I won't even GO there with 'How many Aggies does it take to change a diaper?'
Amber is a Texas State Bobcat!

Summer held Logan last weekend.

Louis Dean and Lucy were happy to see me when I got in late Sunday night!
Lucy - who had NEVER ever gets up on the furniture - decided to curl up there beside Louis Dean - nuzzle her head up under his arm - and then remain MOTIONLESS for the next half hour! She thought if she didn't MOVE then we didn't really SEE her!!

Maggies missed having her wine glasses filled with fresh water oftentimes during the day. I found her sitting on the bedroom floor gazing up at where her glass SHOULD be! As soon as I brought one and set it down she gracefully jumped up there and took a nice long drink! Never mind there was water in both the dog and cat bowls!

It's triple digits in Texas so the big fan is back on duty to keep us comfortable in the gazebo on these summer mornings!'

After eating lunch at the Cotton Patch yesterday and enjoying a dish of their fried apples - I decided to cook up a pot of our own! Delicious!

Speaking of the Cotton Patch - Louis Dean, Mother, I  and two of LD's grandchildren ate there Friday and spend part of the afternoon together. It had been TOO long since he had seen them and we all talked and laughed and had fun!

Robert and Mary Ellen!

I think this picture shows they enjoyed seeing each other!

A random pic......fresh produce from Louis Dean's son.
Fresh vegetables, good bread and cheese and a bottle of wine makes a perfect meal for a summer evening around here.

Louis Dean needs a little more protein so Salmon Croquettes finish off the menu.

We have our work cut out for us in the camper - literally!

I have faith he can do it!! There's never been anything YET he couldn't fix!

I've been busy covering the cushions today.

Adding a little interest to the corners of the cushion with some vintage Angel pins.

I made tubes of fabric for the back cushion and then folded the ends as I would if I were wrapping a package. Then I added the pins.

I have lots to choose from so I can change them out from time to time.


I made a 'halter top' for the bottom cushion.
I washed the cover - and the foam cushion itself - and put the cover back on.
The backing is vinyl so I measured the denim and sewed four  elastic bands from from edge to back edges. This worked perfectly! Louis Dean's idea!

One set down - one to go!
But now that the sun has gone down I am heading out to do some yard work.
I came in and took a nap earlier and LD soaked in the tub and rested.
Now we are both back to work - and getting dirty all over again!!

Lucy is already out there waiting for me!


  1. Okay girl how do you do it all? I can barely read all you do and I sit in amazement! I love your blog. sandie

  2. LOVE LOVE LOVE this random picture post! Sometimes pics are worth a million words!!!

    Somewhere in all your busy day, I hope your finding time to rest. As much as you do, you should feel like your camera screen. You never quit lady :)

  3. Great bunch of pictures!!!!!!!

    I think I really was captured most by............. Your kitty enjoying her wine glass of water. -gigggles- You've said this before, about her precious habit. And now you've pictured it.

    All the family pics are super. How nice to see some of LD's Grands too.

    Good luck LD! You'll get it done! :-)

  4. Looks like y'all had a fulfilling week! So good to see LD with his grandkids. Good to see that y'all are making some progress on the camper too.

  5. I am tired just reading this post. At least you said it was from a week and not a day. Make sure you and LD take time for yourselves. Love seeing all your pictures.

  6. ooohhh i just love that ld...if he wasn't married i might try to scoop him up!

    i love the hubs but he can't cook. otherwise he's perfect!!

    you are soooo busy. i don't know how you do it!!

  7. The photo of you and your grand and LD and his grands says it all...

  8. so my question is, if the cat can sit on the table and drink from the wine glass, why can't Lucy lay on the sofa? LOL. our dogs have permission to lay on anything in the house but the beds. i love her cuddling with daddy and the kitty drinking her water.

  9. I love that you cat drinks from glasses very princess's of her

  10. Love your pictures. The one of LD and the kids laughing is one of my favs. I'm sure your battery is low with all the miles you've been traveling. Burning up the road but it's not every day you get 4 grandbabies at once. And that spoiled little Maggie and wine glass. That is so funny. You're all aglow holding that little darling.
