Monday's Musings



My goodness, it's the next to the last Monday in September. It seems I just blinked and and it was Sept. 1st.  But, I've done enough this month to fill a couple of months, so guess it all works out in the end. ~grin~ Not a lot of big news this morning, just some "tidbits" that I hope you will enjoy. 
 My DIL snapped these precious pictures yesterday morning before they left for church.  Are they not the cutest family?  And, I so well remember those days of getting myself and little ones ready on Sunday morning.  It was always such a contest and it  seemed that the devil did all in His power to create havoc and by the time I got to church I definitely needed to be there. ~smile~  Yes, my hat goes off to not only my children and their families but to all families with little ones as they balance the many responsibilities of their lives, not only on Sunday's but everyday of the week.

And, speaking of Sunday, this is our sweet Clancy all "spiffed up" for church the Sunday we were there. Clancy has adjusted well in his role as "big brother."  He one of the sweetest little boys I know and I'm not the least bit prejudice. ~not at all~ As you can see, there are boxes in the background.  Yep! I really don't care to see another box for a long, long time!!!

I helped with a bridal shower yesterday afternoon for a young couple in our church.  We served cake and fruit and there was just about any kind of cake you could desire.  There's really little need to serve much else on a Sunday afternoon.  By the time the ladies arrive at the shower they have likely had a big meal and aren't all that hungry.  A slice of cake and something to drink does the trick. And, of course, most Southern Women have a favorite cake  and can whip one up pretty quick! ~wink~

I hope to have more "house update" for you next Monday.  We still need pictures hung and decorative pieces placed here and there.  We were sort of interrupted when we had to hurriedly get to Oklahoma but my decorator is coming this week to help me begin the process.  I call it, "the icing on the cake" and it's what I've looked forward to the most.  I also call it, making a house a home.  I'll look forward to sharing the results with you.

And, in case you didn't know it, Wednesday is the first day of fall!

  1. Loved your line: "... by the time I got to church I definitely needed to be there." Isn't that the truth?!!! I've been there, too!

  2. My goodness Clancy seems to have grown so much. I remember getting ready for church with "littles" it was never easy and it was you said by the time you got there, you needed to be there. I have a lot of compassion for all the mommas I see in church and remember those days

  3. I had only one daughter so getting the two of us ready for church back in the day wasn't usually too difficult. But I learned firsthand to appreciate what parents of several littles have to go through the first time I had all 4 of my grands for a sleepover Saturday night. By the time we got to church, I too knew that I needed to be there!
