H O W D Y from Texas!

I let MIL snap a few pics before we headed off
for the ukulele western show.
But we sang more than western...
Jambalaya, Deep in the Heart of Texas,
The Yellow Rose of Texas, and
Alla En El Rancho Grande! Ajua!


And sharing more of my week...

My tablescape comes from the other day
when I had lunch at a friend's house.
I brought the flowers picked from my vegetable garden.

Wish I had captured just how delicious the salad looked.
Mint chocolate chip cookies
Herbal Hibiscus Tea (
I couldn't get enough)
Rye bread & butter (which has childhood memories)

She has three pieces of this vintage dining room furniture.
I could kick myself for not taking a picture
of the most unique piece.
We (3 girl friends) were so busy chatting, looking, &
sharing our worlds, I guess I was lucky to
get the photos I did.

My two great-nephews are coming tomorrow.
It will be my first time to keep them. The youngest
has never been to my house.
Two boys 4 & 6 yrs. old, will be spending
Thrus - Sun at

We are going to have a blast!!!
I hope :-)


oh! I almost forgot...visit more TABLESCAPES at
Susan's * Between Naps on the Porch

What a cool table with all those great food and fresh flowers! Pretty!

Well, it stormed here as I'm sure you've heard thru your family here. It only lasted about 30 mins, but we had some neighborhoods without power and fallen trees. As for us, we just waited out the siren and the news. Thank goodness!
