Not much to say

It's Monday. We had a pretty good weekend. We enjoyed a rainy day lunch after church at a yummy restaurant in Clear Lake Shores called Jo Lees. I had gumbo and a fish sandwich...tasty! Then the rain cleared and the sun came out, so we took our time just driving around enjoying a change of pace and scenery.

Kelvin went fishing over an extended weekend trip but came home empty-handed. Good thing he was in good company though. Hopefully the next trip will be better.

I don't have much to say, but I wanted to let you know we were still here. I'm in a cleaning mode around the house. We have entirely too much stuff. I am ready to reduce and make some space around this place. I'm facing a dilema though. What do you do with pictures? I like to display them, but it seems like I have too many...almost cluttery looking. Any suggestions? I plan on getting my closet cleaned out today, then tackling the kids's drawers and closets. It's always something. My bookcase cabinets are next. We don't have much storage space in this house, and I need to utilize those cabinets for something more useful than storing old VHS movies. I think I'm going to take our cherished VHS home videos to a place here in town that will transfer them to DVD. Less space. :) The attic spaces are on my radar too. Sounds like I'll be a busy little bee if I can get all that done. I probably won't, but it's good to have a goal, huh?

Well, off to declutter my closet and bag up what I haven't worn in a year or two! I guess this is what they call spring cleaning.

Just remembering what a cutie pie Emma was

One of my very favorite pictures. Kelvin and the kids were at the beach house when it was taken. They stayed Friday night without me. I had a ladies thing to do at church on Saturday morning. Kelvin captured this image with his cell phone and sent it to me. I believe it was taken almost exactly a year before Emma was diagnosed.


  1. that's what they mean when they say, "a picture is worth a thousand words"!

  2. I love that picture too!

    If Roses Grow in Heaven

    If roses grow in heaven
    Lord, please pick a bunch for me,
    Place them in my daughter's arms
    And tell her they are from me.

    Tell her I love her and miss her
    And when she turns to smile,
    Place a kiss upon her cheek
    And hold her for awhile.

    Because remembering her is easy.
    I do it everday.
    But there's an ache in my heart
    That will never go away.


Thank you for stopping by. We love hearing from you. Blessings!
