We had a great mini four day vacay in ETx!!! I always feel like I am home when I see this view:
It was cooler than I thought it was going to be, but it was the wind that blew me away (pun intended!)...I couldn't believe how much the wind blew! It was mostly the guys that got affected - Michael & my brother fished a tournament this weekend & the wind the first two days really beat them up on the lake. And b/c the lake is so far down right now, there weren't a lot of coves to hide in either. But they had a good time & the third day the water was like glass! My brother did bring in a big fish Sunday, but at the last minute the fish took a dive & broke his line - so you know it was a big fish! Michael took this pictures right after that:
Actually this weekend was only captured via iPhone, hence the link up at the top of the post. Some weekends are just like that!
I visited my old school, too. It's all elementary now, though b/c the town got a new Jr. High & HS - my old gym, though was used over the weekend for a class reunion. For several classes actually from 57-62 I think. My mother's time - we went up the day before b/c my aunt was decorating & looked around. It was weird seeing it after so many years and b/c it really isn't used anymore - just for elementary PE I think. I don't think I've been in there but maybe once or twice since my HS graduation.
Twitter. Mother found a new crochet pattern for dishrags using cotton yarn & I love them! They actually work better than any I've bought in the store & it's fun to make your own!
This was funny, too - when I was little my Grannie's washing machine was a little wild. Or at least it got a little wild during the rinse cycle. So, when it would start we would actually go sit on it! LOL - I'm not kidding. And as kids, we thought it was so funny!! Now, I don't think she still has that same washer, but the one she has now also gets a little wild during the spin cycle...and Emma got to be the one to sit on it - she thought it was as funny as I did! You know you're from the country when...
He was more interested in the produce - Grannie has some tomatoes out on the table & I looked up and found Aaron walking around with one eating it like an apple!! Runs in the family I guess, my mother, me & Emma all do the same thing - actually Michael will, too!
The top of the stool says:
"This little stool is mine
I use it all the time
To reach the things I couldn'tAnd lots of things I shouldn't!"
All in all it was a great four days...I was glad to be back in my bed last night. That's always true, though. This week is another short week actually - since we're off Friday for Good Friday. Then Easter is Sunday & this Easter Bunny needs to get on the move & get Easter baskets ready. Thankfully (thanks to my mom actually) Emma already has her Easter dress (it's beautiful) and Aaron has his Easter outfit, too. They are going to look so good - maybe I can get Aaron to be still & actually look at the camera long enough for me to get a good picture of the two of them for another canvas, too!!! Fingers crossed!
I hope you all had a great weekend!!
