Vegitating in July

This week has been the first week of the summer that I've been able to do nothing! I'm not sure it's very productive. ;/ I've been putzing around the house cleaning here and there. It just feels so empty. I like having everyone here!
Although it has given me a chance to get my foot looked at. Thank goodness it was just a matter of my body being out of alignment. Now, I'm working on stretching my arch and Achilles out several times a day hoping to get things back to 100%.
We're looking forward to a trip to Kansas on Aug 6th. Our plans are to kidnap Katie, Danny and Luke on our way out there. Hope to be able to see as many of our relatives as possible. Wouldn't it be great to have annual reunions!? We'll have to work on that.
All for now. I'm getting sleepy again. Too much typing. : )
Be sure and check out our latest pics in Our Grandparent Brag Book!

Wrapping Up The Holiday Season!

We had a very quiet Christmas this year. We enjoyed getting to see so much of the family, but greatly missed those of you whom we didn't get to see! It was also a very meager Christmas...

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, but "pup-corn" was all to be found ... anywhere! : )

Happy New Year, everyone!

It was a joy to have my girls and their families home again. We really enjoyed spoiling Lukey. He has such an eye for detail. It's going interesting to see how much he's learned by the next time we see him. We enjoyed seeing almost all of the Dodson family. That was a nice surprise, especially since we didn't get to see the Rusk family.
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and stays healthy, wealthy and wise. Well, healthy anyway.

PS. Thank you girls for helping in the kitchen as much as you did. That was a treat!

Early Release!!

Just to throw you all off I'm putting out my November release in October! You see the only reason I'm doing this blog is to keep in touch with the lives of my family who has chosen to move out west. (I know Kentucky isn't really west, but it's further west then West Virginia)
I felt badly that everyone was making far more entries than I, but now...maybe they are too busy to keep in touch with their mother. Maybe I should help them with their blogs and make up exciting stories of what might be going on if only they were to be kind enough to share it with me themselves.
Let's Cassie and Paul drove to the big city of Chicago this weekend to buy a new piece of furniture for their apartment. Wait. That is true...Ah, but see I know that because Cassie called me this weekend.
Katie on the other hand I have no idea what may be going on with her. So, let's see, Katie tried this wonderful new recipie for Chicken Pot Pie that Oprah featured on her show this week. She had the whole house filled with the aroma of roasted chicken and corn bread when Danny came home from work. To make it yummy for Lukey she put the veggies and chicken through the food grinder first. Mashed Chicken Pot Pie. Mmmm Danny had 3 helpings to make sure she knew how much he appreciated her effort. She decided that since it was such a big hit she would volunteer to make enough for our Thanksgiving dinner in Virginia! She knows her mother would be so proud!
