Monday's Musings

I'm posting from our daughter's this morning.  I came out yesterday and we'll go to Dallas in just a few minutes for her Doctors appointment.  And, of course, we will definitely sneak in a little "retail therapy" while there.  I mean, who can go to Dallas and not!!  Meanwhile, on to Monday's Musings......
This past week Hubby and I came out to Texas for Clancy's Kindergartner graduation on Tuesday evening.  It's so nice that they are a mere 3 1/2 hours up the road and we can share in events such as this.
I don't know exactly what I was expecting but I wasn't expecting it to be such a grand affair.  My goodness, they pulled out all the stops for it.  There were beautiful decorations, food and the program was so well planned and it was over in ONE hour.  And, one of the hi-lites of the evening was that Clancy gave the invocation.  He prayed the sweetest prayer and never missed a beat and it didn't seem to bother him one bit that there were about 300 folks in attendance.
Our happy little graduate!
Isn't Bridget's "baby bump" the cutest?  She is so proud of that bump and is still doing so well and we're expecting another good report today.

 Things are getting down to the "nitty gritty" at the new house.  We now have heat and air and the security system is almost finished.  Now, hopefully we can learn how to operate both.  Goodness, I've never seen such a fancy screen on a heating/ac control.  It is in color and even gives the weather and as you can see, it even has our name on it.  Really!!!  Guess that could help should we forget who we are and that's liable to happen with all that we have going on at this time.
Three fourths of the plumbing is done and, we now have running water.  As you can tell by the above pictures we opted for one handled faucets.  For me, it's the only option.  Who wants to have to turn two handles to get warm water?  Apparently a whole lot of folks, but not us.  I think somewhere I heard that two handles look nicer than than one handle but, my decorator assured me that it is merely a personal preference, no right or wrong way.  I'm so glad because I really wouldn't want to be doing it the "wrong" way. ~too many more important things to think about~
The painters continue on, but they are about to finish up the inside work.  The above picture is of the garage, decided to go with a little color in there, white was just  too stark for me.  They should be starting on the little bit of outside work in a week or two and there's very little outside work.  Of course, once the flooring goes down they will come back inside to do the baseboards.  Their job never ends.

Okay, I'm off for a fun day and hope that you are too!


  1. Love your oil-rubbed bronze fixtures. I prefer the looks of two-handle faucets in the bathroom, but I love the convenience of a single handle.

    Praying for continued good news at today's doctor's visit.

  2. Hope you get great news at the doctor's. Glad that it stopped raining in time for you to do some serious retail therapy!

  3. Your little Clancy is such a little doll. I bet your heart was bursting while he prayed. And I am just so happy for your daughter, and for you, on this pregnancy and will continue to keep her in prayer until you are holding that baby in your arms.

  4. Praying for your daughter and pregnancy. Hope the appointment goes well.

    How wonderful for your little man to lead the prayer. That's wonderful he could do that at such a young age.

  5. Your daughter Bridget is beautiful and I am so happy for her pregnancy!
