What a summer so far.....

I can't believe how much rain we have gotten! It has totally messed up my pool and backyard.
Usually by May we have a pretty yard complete with plants and flowers around the pool. The pool although cool is always ready for swimmers by end of May. Not this year! We began putting out our plants and flowers and I am pretty sure my hanging baskets are dead due to too much water!
My pool was starting to come in and then the waters hit with a vengeance bringing dirt and stuff from I don't know where.....it is still struggling and what is it doing this week? Raining again! Lake Texoma will probably go over spillway again....that is just crazy!
I think we are going to need a summer do over.....I like summer.....it is a nice break to get outside and in the sunshine......but this year it has been rain, Mosquitos and flies.....

On another note....we are days away from seeing our second Grandbaby! Looking forward to baby Cylus to arrive!

Another busy weekend but summer is on its way!!

Well... last weekend was busy... we went to check on Ashley after she was placed on bed rest for the weekend. We are waiting to hear if she will be released today to return to work or if she will be heading to hospital to deliver a sweet baby boy.
There was still work to do on the duplex...so we headed over there with Alex to help out with that some too... his parents helped him finish up on Saturday.
We waited out the rain on Saturday morning and then headed out to see the flood waters... crazy how much water was flowing over the spillway!!!
I'm sore from all this moving and lifting...so I am enjoying a bit of Plexus Fast relief cream...it feels so good! Sunday the sun came out for a bit and of course I had to go sit and enjoy... I got a little bit pink on my arms and legs but I tried the Plexus body cream.. and sure enough that pink was gone and the heat was out of it...I just love all these Plexus products...I am anxiously awaiting for my P96 vanilla to come in so I can make some more of those great shakes!!!

This week we are on baby watch...could happen anytime!!!
Just a few days till summer.... I can make it!!!

A long weekend!!!

Well it was a long weekend! We decided to take in a movie Friday night after dinner! I didn't realize how long the Avengers movie is! So we got home some time after 10:30 and then got up earlier the next morning to help Ashley and Alex move.
There was much packed but still much to be done as we began loading boxes and the guys began loading trailers. The guys made one trip to the new house before we stopped for lunch... the 2nd trip we all decided to go. The house is great! They are going to love it!
We got back Saturday night before the storms hit...lots of rain fell...not much sleep before we got up and went to church. After lunch we all tried to grab some rest before going back up to the church for some volleyball and games.
Monday, Steve and I went back to Denton to help....don't know that we got much done but we did figure out where the hospital is... and helped get a new fridge transported to the new house and put in the kitchen.

Bentley is starting to show some of that sweet personality and her momma caught some of these shots on Saturday. Can't believe she is almost 2 months old.. won't be long till we have Baby Cylus here too!!

Rain, Rain go away

Ok... I know come July and August we will just wish for some rain.. but right now...go away!!! When I walk in our yard it is just gooshy and you leave foot prints as you move around.
My pool is struggling and green...every time we get close to getting the chemicals right the rain comes.
I was driving home from school yesterday in a DOWN pour... I used an umbrella but still got soaked walking to the car...as I got up to the light hail started...so I found cover and let Steve know.. he let me know the sun was shining at the house..and actually I was starting to see some sun too... while it was raining and hailing on me!
Looks like the rest of the week and into the holiday weekend is RAIN.... we are hoping to move Ashley to her new home but that depends on closing and the RAIN....

I am soooo ready for summer! First thing I want to do is to do nothing at all... I hope my pool cooperates and at least looks clear!!!

A very wet weekend......

WOW! what a crazy wet weekend!
Friday night I kept up with Ashley as she traveled from Denton to Granbury as the storms were coming in! Steve and I grabbed a quick bite and picked up some breakfast food and pretty much just hung out at the house.
Steve and I went out to Hagerman on Saturday just to see how the water was rising! They were putting out barricades and blocking roads that were going under water! It is good to see water in the lake.. but did it have to all come at one time??
Sunday we all were at church and then were coming to the house to fix steaks and veggies for Mother's day... in the middle of church everyone's phone alert went off and let us know MORE flooding potential was out there.
Sure enough while starting lunch it looked like a monsoon!!! The power went out and stayed out for some time.. that put lunch on hold... when it came back on we really enjoyed our lunch!!!
We just hung out and watched the tornado track through the East side of town...
I enjoyed my day and got cards from both kids and also beautiful hanging baskets and a clean patio from Steve...
I am blessed!!!

New Addition

Well this weekend we made a road trip to Canton. We loaded up Andy and Bobbie and baby Bentley and off we went. Andy really wanted to take Bobbie to see the big First Monday trade's day... but I knew what that meant was really Dog Alley...so off we went on our two hour adventure...
It was a busy place and Dog alley was full of LOTS of animals!!!
We saw Yorkies and Morkies and Ducks and Geese and Rabbits and just a little bit of everything!
Of course we had to hold and pet and enjoy as many of them as we could! I think we were all on sensory overload.
As luck would have it we found a really pretty Border Collie at a great price that we just couldn't go home without.
We didn't make it home till around 10pm.. but we had a cute little guy with us.... He really didn't want to go straight to bed when we got there so Steve and I traded off staying in the living room with him so at least we each got a few hours sleep!
Last night was so much better! We made sure he had play time after church and lunch and that he had a full tummy an hour before bed time. He has kinda taken up with Beau's pillow bed so we put that in the new puppy's carrier and he got in and got quiet and went to sleep...we actually slept all night...
He has done a really good job of going outside to potty...of course he hasn't really learned to tell us yet but the signs are big so off we go! :) and he didn't go in his bed at all!!!
So.. next step is to name this little guy...some names we are looking at are:
  • Scout
  • Rowdy
  • Jasper
  • Scooter
I am always happy after I get a dog names so I can start the training... and he is going to be a fun one to train because he appears to be really smart!!!
