Saturday night

We are having a bit of a heat wave, it has reached a balmy 20 degrees today. Got to love that global warming! After the weekly visit to Lowes, where my peeps hang out, we went to Sams. I don't have a card mainly cause I do not subscribe to the idea of paying to shop. But I will say to hell with my scruples, and enter with someone else who does have a card. And to tell the truth I just don't get it, the prices of items didn't seem like such a good deal to me. At least not for a family that has dwindled down to two. Then we ran over to Walmart, and I found out where the majority of Capes population spends their Saturday. As we passed others that we knew, we could only shake our heads and repeat "what the hell were we thinking"

So back home we went, the wind blowing my coat straight back like supermans cape. Wow, that wind blows right through you. I'm not leaving the house again unless I really, really have to go. Like maybe a chocolate run or something. It was nice that my eldest son called, we don't hear from him all that often. And how great to hear how nice it was by the ocean, with the waves coming in and the kids playing in the surf. So after he hung up and I bundle up in a down comfortor, I was thinking maybe I should warm up by cleaning or by refinishing some furniture. But that comforter (is it comfortor, comforter?) well let's just say blanket, is so great, I think I'll just hibernate here for the day.

Tomorrow we travel to St Louis so Mark can visit his brother who has had a stroke. He is in a rehab facility, and we have every hope he'll recover. So we will visit with my second grandchild Abbey. She is little miss independent, and so funny to be around. And you know how some kids are climbers, well she is a great one. I think we'll have to start looking around for a climbing wall for her. When do the garage sales begin again?

Hi Deborah,
First, I would like to say that I hope that Mark's brother is doing well since his stroke. I'm sure that he has many prayers going his way.

Thank you for your visit to my blog. I just got through reading yours and it was like one of those books that you just can't put down. I enjoyed your pictures very much and was tickled pink to see the San Antonio photos. Although I can't stand to visit the Alamo anymore, I still get a thrill when I see a photo of it. We don't venture out that way very often but when we happen to drive by the Alamo once in a blue moon, it still gives me chills.

I am going to put your blog on my favorites list. I'll come and visit you and see if you've got some great photos to look at.

BTW, I truly love that photo of your mom and dad. Very sweet.

Have a blessed tomorrow,
Deanna :)

Deb, I can't wait for y'all to get here! I think I may ditch the list of things to do and just hang out at the beach the whole time. Suzy's husband, Doug, will even take Mark surfing with him. He has an extra surfboard. It's gonna be great. So stay warm there and think about how soon you'll be here!
