Greg's youngest sister, Ashley, is terribly creative, a wonderful mother to her two girls, and very organized. Her last blog post asked for other's ideas for being organized.
Her craft room.....
The girls' playroom.....
Dress up area of the playroom......
Her two beautiful daughters.....they are sweethearts.....and look at that PINK coat!!! Don't you love it!!!
So, in order to make Ashley feel better, I went around the house taking a few pictures.
So, Ashley, this is for you.
The freezer......
My desk......
My night stand......
Now, who needs organization?? I don't even have two small children so what is MY excuse?? Thanks, Ashley.....now I feel bad about what a mess I am.....I am heading to the freezer to finish off that Breyers ice cream on the top shelf to try to make me feel better......

Jonathan's haircut and new shoes

Jonathan got his second haircut on Saturday, he took his dad with him. Then he came by to visit with Mimi and Papa.
He has started wearing shoes since he is walking more and more. They are SO cute!! I LOVE little shoes......
We took his shoes off while he was in the house and he was trying to put them back on by himself.

Gittin' some culture.....

Have tickets to go to the Waco Civic Theatre tonight to see this with a co-worker and her husband. Another co-worker has a part in the production so it should be quite fun. All I know is I am glad I wasn't planning to go to a high school football game tonight. It has drizzled all day and started raining hard here at about 4:00 PM, and continues. Not a night that I want to sit outside. Greg is officiating a game in Crawford. At least they are heading over to try to call it. The rain won't be the issue to delay the game, lightning will. And yes, I am most grateful for the much needed rain!!! I am NOT complaining!!

This is my new bird. A young lady on Craigslist was giving her away and I told her if she couldn't find anyone else to take her, I would. I picked her up this afternoon on my way home from work. Her name is Sweety. She and the doves were getting acquainted when I came inside.

Marvin's Marvelous Pickled Okra

My good friend, Susan, from Fredericksburg sent me this picture. They have a peach orchard/veggie/fruit market. They used my dear sweet dad's pickled okra recipe for the abundance of okra that they grew. It looks very pretty in the jars, and they even put dad's name on the labels!! She said she would save me some jars and hopefully we can get together with them sometime this fall so we can have a taste. My dad would be so thrilled!!
