Few Word Friday…

I was going to call this post “Wordless Wednesday…on Friday” but as soon as I typed it in, I realized I did have a few things to say, so it wouldn’t be totally wordless and it isn’t Wednesday. So now I have spent over 5 minutes just picking out a title for today’s post. Which really isn’t a post, per se, because I don’t have all that much to talk about, but I do have some pictures to share.

For those of you who have offered additional bean bags, thank you, but the new La-Z-Boys are on their way. Yahoo! I think Phoebe is the most excited.

Zoe learned to love the bean bag, especially when she’s in it all by herself, but Phoebe never could manage it. Trust me, I feel her pain.

One of the bad things about living Bohemian style is having your bed on the floor. This leads to all kinds of misperceptions about who is allowed on the bed. And who is allowed to put their head on my pillow (answer: only me!) Having her breathe heavily in my ear was one thing, but when the snoring started, it was all over for us.

And yes, her lips are touching me!

 

 

 

My brother and his sweet family are coming for a visit this weekend. That means I’ll have some pictures of our beautiful Ella to share next week.

We all know babies are fond of shiny things. This time, they happen to be on Skater’s face. She ever so gently touched them, then reached in and gave him a big sloppy kiss. I love babies! (Psst, don’t tell anyone, but so does Skater!)

 

 

 

 

Speaking of Skater, it was his 21st birthday last week. While it was a very sad time for all of us, when we are all together as a family, we have a good time as we share memories and make new ones. We did celebrate the Skater’s birthday in style, at the only Mexican joint in town. It was surprisingly good, this coming from someone who lives lived in Texas.

It’s a shame all he got was fried ice cream, because it was a dry county. No margarita for you, senor!

Don’t worry Skater, Mom is coming to Austin and we’ll do it up right.

 

 

 

 

That’s right, I’m going back to Austin for a couple of weeks to pack up some things to make life more bearable and bring my truck back here. I’ll fly back when we sell, to close and organize the movers. Until then, at least I’ll have something more than one bamboo spatula and a sauce pan.

It’s one thing for CGMan to live here with nothing, but quite another for me. I can do without a chair in front of the TV, but I have to have stuff in my kitchen!

Well, lookit there, I had enough stuff/opinions/pictures/thoughts to make a post after all! It’s amazing what you’ll sit here and read what I can come up with if I try hard enough.

Have a great weekend!

  3. Oh, a mattress on the floor. We did that for about...a year and a half? I remember feeling like such a big kid when we got a real bed again.

    Woo hoo for la-y-boys!

  4. I'm glad you are getting things that will make you more comfortable in your new home.

    Little Ella would have a free for all in Cleveland. I have two kids that have shiny things on their faces!

  6. I agree, you need a lady needs her good kitchen stuff! When we vacation in the Outer Banks, I bring my good knives and an entire box full of spices so I can feel the love of a vacation home kitchen!

  7. I love the picture of you and Phoebe sleeping together. I'll be Phoebe really enjoyed snuggling with you.

    I'd kill Meester if he took a picture of me sleeping - without makeup. Yep, I'm sadly that neurotic about makeup.
