Home again!

The drive to Houston and back was pretty with the beginning of fall color and was an easy drive.  A full day - it takes 13 hours but the weather was great both ways.  It is a much easier drive when you aren't pulling an RV (the Whale as Walter calls it) or following a huge Penske truck.  While I was in Houston, I did a few important errands:)  I bought Texas pecans for me and the offspring (yes, they are spoiled);  had my mammogram; picked up a few things from the ex; had my hair cut; and delivered some baskets.  I stayed two nights with Maynard, four with Barbara, and one with Ardell!!!  Somehow, I came home with my car loaded with more STUFF!!!

Barbara, Jim, Amy
Homecoming 2010
Barbara is doing pretty well and will find out more at her doctor's appointment on Wednesday.  She can even work part-time this week (but don't overdo it!!).  It was homecoming for her daughter, Amy, this week so she went off to school Friday with her mum on.  She made the one for her boyfriend, Kyle.  As you can see, she did not get the height gene from her mother.  Amy is 5'10".  Sarah is jealous:)

I saw this sign somewhere in East Texas and had to stop and take a picture.    When I got home, the townhouse was in great shape.  Nick was busy cleaning while I was away and picked up two chairs I had ordered.  It is finally shaping up!

I think this was meant for me!

On the Nightstand - I finally gave up on "Freedom" and left it with Barbara.  We'll see what she thinks!  I am reading a mystery by Iris Johansen entitled "Quicksand".  It is the first book I have downloaded to my iTouch from iBooks.  It was one of the $3.99 specials!  So far I am enjoying it.

No sewing yet!  Maybe this week.

Hi, Peggy!

I've been thinking the last few days that we hadn't heard from you in a while, then I thought, why don't you check in on her blog, dimwit? Sure enough, I'm all UP TO DATE now.

It sounsd like you had a great visit in Houston, and I can definitely see the family resemblance between you and Barbara. I'm so thankful she received the best "cancer news" possible.

Your painting is PERFECT-ISIMO! You should definitely hang it in a place of prominence. :o)
