Fun Times

Today Monday the 8th was all about my Mom. Today was her birthday so Pamela and I headed up her way to celebrate. We took her out to eat at the 105 Cafe in Conroe and then shopping. She's lost so much weight most of her clothes  don't fit. We had a good time. Hopefully I got her hope before we wore her out too bad.

One Saturday David and I went to breakfast at our favorite little hole in the wall place but when he turned out of the parking lot he turned right instead of left to go home. I just assumed he was headed to the post office near by but he passed it so I had to ask. "Where are we headed?" Funny I can't remember where we actually
went but we drove out to the Kenney Store in Kenney, Texas. They serve so I'm told awesome food each day like on Wednesday's you can have chicken fried ribeye all you can eat and on Thursday's they have all you can eat grilled or fried pork chops. Can't wait to go try the food. I've been told it's really good. They also have live music. So it's on our list of places to try.
At work one of the depts. had a baby shower for this little gal. She's so cute. She's due in August and hardly looks pregnant. She is an avid book reader so they figured the baby will be too so everyone contributed a book to the basket. LOL her favorite book was the potty book. It's usually the kids favorite too.
This is one of those a little of this and a little of that blog posts where I catch with everything that's been going on.
David went to the Rockin K to see how the septic system progress was coming along. wink wink.... You see back at Christmas David told me that he was having a septic system put in when actually he was trying to have a deck and cover put on the Mini Mansion for me. Well that didn't turn out so well but this time I think he's gonna get it done. He felt so bad but it wasn't his fault it was the crook who tried to take advantage of him. In the above photo the had just set the poles for the framing. David needs to send me the framed out pictures. 
Anyway David found a new
young man to do the job and there's progress as you can see.  Now David finished the deck and stairs all by himself but Jake is coming in to build the cover and add a lean too to the North side of the barn and an over hang in the front of the barn. We had hoped and so did Jake that it was be complete the Friday the order of tin didn't come in so we have to wait one more week. The suspense.. I can't wait to rock on the deck under the cover or park under the new barn cover.
Oh oh and the best part this past week I finished a quilt top for a former neighbor and old friends daughter's new baby boy. Finally I might say.  I made an easy quilt hard. Or at least as far as I thought it was easy. This is just a tease. She already knows what fabrics are in the quilt and this doesn't give away the pattern. It's at the quilters and I can't wait to get it back and finished up so I can send it to baby Hudson. I have started on another quilt top that is long long over due but I believe for now I may go to bed. I'm pooped.

So until next blog...'Map out your future, but do it in pencil.'~Jon Bon Jovi
