Last Weekend

Last Saturday, we spent most of the day working at our new house.  Allan assembled this scaffolding to use to reach the high parts.
It's entirely too high for me to climb around on, but it was an easy task for Allan.
We are nearing the end to this sheetrocking...FINALLY!  He saved this high stuff for the last and now we're almost finished.
Mom brought over several red bud trees to plant.  She's constantly pulling them up in her yard in places that she doesn't want them to be.  So, she brings them to us!

If I can just keep them alive, I'll be in good standing with Mom!  My thumb is no where near as green as hers.  I was proud to find several redbuds that she planted last year are now leafing out, so maybe my green thumb gene is slowly emerging.
After watching Allan swing from the rafters and Mom break her back digging and planting, I just had to take a break.
We had a good day and really accomplished quite a lot.

Sunday, we had a good day at church.  My Bible class was adorable as usual. 
Our lesson was about God caring for the birds of the air and the lilies of the field.  During class, "J" told about a girl at her school that was not playing with her and was being mean to her.  "B" told her, "You should treat people the way you want them to treat you."  Out of the mouths of babes!  Her G-Ma was proud that she remembered this advice!
After church, we went to Paris to meet a good friend that was visiting from Colorado.  We ate at our favorite Mexican restaurant, TaMolly's.
This is the best Mexican food in the area!  I had #11 chicken as usual.  We had a good visit with Donnie and hope to see him on his next trip in this direction.

And just because he's cute-
Even though he's sticking his tongue out at the camera, he's still adorable!


  1. Oh, how exciting, a new house! I have lived in the same house for almost 32 years and I'm dying for a new house. Maybe one day. :o) And, I can't imagine being up on that scaffolding. Yikes! And, your sweet Mom and the Redbud trees, what a treasure. Happy mid-week!

  2. Oh, Hershel...I love that kitty cat.
