Feline Friday


Feline Friday A good day to share my boy Boots again.  wish I had more photos of him.Somewhere I do have some where the girls were small and dressed up and made him pose. He was so gentle.

Ellen and Lorianne co host this weekly blog hop. They each choose two questions to pose to us. Thank you ladies!

1. I never thought I would enjoy sushi, until I tried it. Now I love it.

2.Carbona is the secret to getting red dye out of white clothes. I accidently washed two white t shirts of my hubby with red pillowcarses. Uh-oh! His whites t shirts look great again.

3. I'm happy to announce that  I am trying really hard to eat healthier. 

4. My own home is like a second home to me.  I just love our house.


Colton and Jacey and Shea picked me up for lunch at the Olive Garden today. We took a selfie and Shea was too busy eating her breadatick waiting for her lunch. After lunch, another patron walked up to Colton and said, "I wanted to compliment you. Your child is so well manners." It was so sweet. I can scan a room and always tell the ones who dislike children.  It makes me sad. But this lady was older and she was so kind. She may have heard Shea say thank you to the server when they brought her food. The girl is a character and she loves to eat. She is a messy eater but she is 15 months old so there is that.  We stacked all the dirty dishes on the table and cleaned up as much of her spills as we could.  We missed Harrison as he is in school fulltime now. Last night they came over for dinner and Harrison beat Grandfather and I at Csndy Land. That kid has a gift and he always draws the best cards. He was so happy we beamed, I beat you Grandfather! What a blessing the kids are to us. 

Here are some pretty pink and other colorful macarons. You can check out their website here: LeilaLove and please visit Pink Saturday

A favorite photo of Nick. Happy number 2-8 trips around the Sun My son! This Margot Kelly photo was taken in 2011 at the Nike Southwest Track and Field Event in Arizona.  Margot Kelly was kind enough to let us share her photo as long as we gave her credit for it. Nick won the boys open event in Cross Country. It was an exciting time as he had shingles and was still feeling the effects of it. It made this mom and dad so proud.  It was also a fun day because Jenny Matlock who use to blog went out of her way with her husband Steve to come to the event and meet us. I Miss Jenny to this very day. She became very ill and retired her blog and I somehow lost touch with her. I wish I could find an Arizona blogger who knew how she was doing.

We were all dolled up for Jeremy and Brittany's wedding, April 30, 2016. What a day that was. Wonderful memories and it is not often that my sons get dressed up with me. Nick's birthday is technically at 4 P.M. MDT but we have been celebrating all day. He is going to have three of his siblings over for cake tonight. He received a beautiful decanter from a friend in Pennslyvania and of course, our gift is delayed until tomorrow. I will get a photo of him with it when it arrives. Maybe he will let me snap a photo of that gorgoeus decanter too.

I am grate for this young man and wish him many more wonderful celebrations around the sun.  He was always my lunch buddy until he went off to middle and high school. College was the hardest because the other kids stayed close and he went to school in Kansas. Many wonderfulmemories from all those road trips.

Happy belated birthday to Nick!
Maybe if I didn't know what it was, I MIGHT try sushi. (LOL) That's good to know about the Carbona; filing that away for future reference. One of these days I want to remember and participate in Friday Fill-Ins.
Happy Saturday!
