Just keep swimming

Hey y’all!  It’s Sunday morning, about 7:54.  Okay, it’s not ‘about 7:54’.  It IS 7:54.  My husband and step-son just left for Kingsville and will be gone a week.  My littlest person, while awake, has been sent on a chore mission.  And I am off work today.  From all my jobs.  This never happens. I…

Frame Work!

So, y’all know we have a slab poured.  Next stop, frame work.  I’m super excited about this for several reasons.  In no particular order.  1.  I can see my drawing come to life.  2.  Addie finally realizes this will be a house with rooms, not just a slab with walls.  3.  I can finally know…

House Progress!

Let me first express how happy I am to finally be having a house built.  I’ve been dreaming and drawing my house the way other little girls plan their weddings.  For. Years. Albeit, it is not my low-country cottage with enclosed porches and a library like Belle had in Beauty and the Beast, but hey. …

A Question / Wicked Walk

Have you decided what you want to be when you grow up?  I am leaning towards 33 years of life and still struggle with this question.  I went to Junior College, check.  Went to E.M.T. school, check.  Started off as an English major at Stephen F. Austin State University, half-check.  I owned a bakery, had a swimming pool store, then…

Wicked Walk 5/20/2015

I was in Nacogdoches yet again for work and Addie was my helper for the entire 10 hour day.  After we closed down the store we needed to stretch our legs a bit and since it wasn’t raining, thank God, we went over to the arboretum at Stephen F. Austin state university.  SFA happened to be the location…

Friday Fun!

So the ‘fun’ didn’t really happen on a Friday, it happened on a Wednesday but whatever.  I had to travel 50 miles to work several hours and I knew the day would be slow and drag on forevermore if I didn’t bring an activity for Addie and me.  I decided we should paint so paint…

Wicked Walk 1/28/2015

Wednesday, my day off, was spent working at my old job, attending a home-school painting party, trying to clean house, feed Rachel, check on a horse with colic and numerous other activities.  All of which interfered with my walk.  Which is fine.  I don’t mind helping out at my old job.  I had fun at…

40 Hour Week

Recently I was on my way to work, easing down my bumpy dirt road watching the sun rise and Alabama’s song ’40 Hour Week’ came on the radio.  As I listened I was reminded just how blessed I am to live in a country where I am able to work, worship and live as I…

Frosty

The sun finally came out yesterday, after spending almost the entire year in hiding.  Clear skies meant a frosty morning was in store for us.  I scurried outside to snap a few pictures before getting ready for work.  Have a great Friday everyone!  Love ya’! P.S.  I hope my super white feet didn’t blind you. …
