Cat's Away

Ben went to Dallas for the weekend.
Something there he wanted to do. . .
I stayed home and played.
I cooked hamburgers for Caleb and his grandparents.
Now that the painters are finished, I am doing some sewing.
I used some of my African fabric to make a window seat.
You are thinking, "It looks like that pattern is painted on."
You are correct.
Doesn't matter, though, because this is where I keep my music.
I made a pillow two weeks ago.
New furniture is coming soon.
This is what my entry hall looked like
before we went to New York.
Perhaps now you can understand my concerns.
The painters stocked my fridge with Monster drinks.
That explains a lot, actually.
Seth and Tyler were fun to work with.
This is what my entry hall looks like now.
The going word is, "Ethereal."
Ethereal via Monster, is what I'm sayin'.
Subtlety is the key.
Um, I think I like it.The tower was previously white.
This is definitely an improvement.John, home from Iraq, was happy when it was finished;
mostly he was happy that I was done freaking out.
The walls of my piano room are coated with Venetian plaster.
It looks like suede.
If you are thinking, "I wish she'd taken a better picture,"
well, then I'm in trouble.

It's a Horse Race!

Who would have thought that Steve and Janet would
take us to the horse races?
It turned out to be pretty fun. Kyle loved it.
We took breakfast from McDonald's.
I said the blessing.
I asked Kyle to smile for me. He said he couldn't
because he was busy watching the horses.
Then we went to Prospect Mountain.
Everyone else hiked up, but Kyle and I rode a little bus
so we could take the picnic lunch.
Kyle is so funny. He wanted to ride the bus,
but he was scared of it at the same time.
There were a few tears, but he was brave, and happy at the end.
Kyle climbed a humongous rock!
Do you know what that word means?
Kyle can tell you:
reaowe, reaowe big.
This is my attempt at an artsy photo.
We could see 100 miles from the overlook.
I didn't look further than these cute people.
We had a lot of fun and wore Kyle completely out.
The purpose of this trip was Camille's blessing.
Guess who made the dress?
We've had a lot of fun and have laughed a lot.
The last thing we did was celebrate birthdays.
Several are coming up in this family.
Now, I'm going home to check on the painters.

Thank you, Julie. You're Welcome, Louie.

Did I really want to start this last post of Steve's visit with another picture of my groupies watching Star Trek?  I sure did.  We'...
