Random Pics from Texas


I miss my daughter’s dog Findlay, aka “Little Stink” as called by George, or “Fin Fin” by any of us. She is a sweety pie. She would often lay in my lap while I worked a crossword.

I miss the ranch window. Love to sip coffee and look out at the morning glow and the evening sunset.

We cooked a lot for “the kids” as we call them, although they are very grown up. And each evening I would change up the centerpiece – just from whatever Kate had setting around for decor. I hope it didn’t bother her. I tried to make it different night to night.

See the dog ears on the napkins (paper towels)? LOL

Findlay loves to sit and run along the back of the couch. It’s hilarious. She looks for her Daddy to come home.

My daughter is an excellent decorator. I always enjoy her flair.

George with Findlay

I could take pics of the dogs all day long. She was good to pose for me, and has calmed a bit from our previous trips. Before it was hard to get her to be still for long.

Sweet Roger

There’s something about these mesquite trees that I love.

Miss Maisy wanting some attention.

George at the helm cooking up some din din!

A cook book I looked through at Kate’s and I put some lemons in a bowl. Katy enjoys her fruit. There was some liquor George had bought in the background. I thought it made it pretty picture.

We did try to do this, Cook with Love! I love the spoon holder message.

George began making pizza dough one day. I was practicing using the camera.

Mr. Roger, doing what he does best! Except for scaring the deer off. He loves to scare the deer away.

What a great message to see every morning before taking your shower. I love this. And I also loved doing laundry there. If anyone put a load in, I folded it. I washed a couple of loads of towels and also a couple loads of our darks so we could rewear our “comfy jeans”.

Every laundry center needs one of these. I find change nearly every time but I don’t have one of these. This is cute. I guess it pays to do the laundry.

And that pretty much sums up the “extra pics”. I still have some Graham pics to share and also some Gender Reveal extra pics as well as some sunset pics.

So, for the daily update:

Work has been extremely busy. I think I’m sortof caught up from vacation now. But I’m not really caught up from last week yet, lol. I didn’t take a lunch yesterday but just ate what I could find around my desk. I was pretty full anyway from all we’ve eaten lately.

I came home and fixed chili yesterday, after talking with my sweet friend, Lisa. Have been in the mood for some chili for about a month.

Also saw this wallet on Amazon.

I’ve been wanting a thinner one. This one keeps people from getting your card information. Apparently people can get your number just by standing around you. But this has that protection so your information cannot be read by those special devices. This above is an example of an ad that pops up. I didn’t order it yet. I will wait. I need to check it out further and make sure it’s what I want. I like mine now but it’s just soooooo big. I need something a little flatter. And I would like to have one of these RFID wallets.

Amazon has perfected their ads to the point that they are showing me ads of what I’m thinking about. How scary is that? I’ve not written, mentioned, or spoken of a new wallet. But thought about it a few days ago. And there it is. However, I did speak with someone over the phone that had their account broken into so perhaps it recalled that conversation. But there have been numerous times lately when I thought about ordering something and the ad shows it within just a few hours. Like some blue casual sandals – bam – there they were. lol. They may have already discovered a way to know what we are thinking? lol lol lol I’m not worried about it. I like having ads that suite me rather than ones that don’t. Less having to hunt for things. Whooop, there it is! That item I needed. lol

Well I better go get ready and go. It’s payroll day. Once payroll is done, I sigh a big fat relief sigh and just process everything from the payroll run the rest of the week such as pay taxes, upload and pay 401k, pay the garnishments and then get ready for the next payroll week. I had a lot of garnishments come at once last week – I want to say like 15 or 18 – so I had a busy day yesterday of taking care of those and getting them set up on top of everything else going on.

Anyway, I hope everyone is safe from the Hurricanes. I know that our area is awfully muggy today. I think the southern mugginess from these storms is being sent our way. I had to take out Roger last night at 11:30 and it was horribly muggy then.

OK off for more coffee and figure out what to wear today. I’m not sure I’m happy with the line up I picked. I need some more pants! I’ve focused on the tops way more than the pants but I’ve got to order some I guess and then see if they fit.

Ya’ll have a great day out there. Is the hurricane going to impact you any?

  1. Landsend has nice pants, I need a couple more pairs for this coming winter. I told my husband I need to order a new doormat for our front porch. Then the next day I saw an ad for doormats! It is strange for sure. These are strange times we are living in. Who knows what they can do?
    I hope your week goes well for you. Time is going by fast for me it seems.

  2. Loved the photos from Texas. I can see that Kate and Cody have made a lovely home, she obviously takes. after you, you are very good at putting lovely things together. Glad you got the payroll done I know the relief in your words….
    We have had one of the wildest days I can remember especially in August it’s not exactly a hurricane but the winds have got up to 70/75 mph…I was trying to do a short video but the wind nearly blew me over. Earlier in the day we had awful rain if people had been out in it they would have been soaked to the skin in minutes… take care driving home..God Bless
