A Random Catch Up.......


And, random it is..........My last post was two weeks ago today and it was a nice break but it's so good to be back.  The blogging community has become such a part of my life and I surely do miss you fine folks when I'm away.  I'm not even sure when I would have blogged as there has been a whole lot of busyness and noise around here the past days.  Now, on to my randomness!


Our daughter was here all last week and one morning she came  to visit with me while I did my makeup and hair.  It was hair washing day and those days take a little longer than normal and she thought that I should share with my blogging buddies what I look like while I flatiron my hair.  So, I decided it might bring a chuckle to you and here it is.  I have very thick hair and very course hair, so I have to part it out in sections before flat ironing it.  I could never just flatiron the top layer for sure.  I would look like I had a bushel basket on my head if I did.  I have to get to the underneath layers first and then the top and it works for me.  Thankfully I only have to do this on hair washing days as the other days I just run a brush through it and GO!  So, now you know. I told you this was random.



 We decided to have a photo shoot last Sunday morning because we never seem to remember to take "planned" pictures.  There's so much going on that my brain gets lost and I can't think straight. ~chuckle~ But, we managed to get these and I was real pleased with the results.



One evening we enjoyed fishing.  Our son and his family joined us and the kids had such a good time.  Both of the "little's" caught a fair share and their excitement  was enjoyed by all of us.  Poppa and our son stayed busy just keeping everyone's pole with a cricket on it and then taking the fish off when they were caught.  It was a full time job.



One morning we took the kids swimming and Bridget and Windy stayed busy entertaining Andi Kate and Coleman.  They both love the water and Andi Kate had just finished up a week of swimming lessons and did quite well with her swimming skills for a 3 year old.  Of course, unless she has on her life vest, her Momma never takes her eye off of her. After a morning of swimming and lunch the little ones were more than ready for a nap and so were their Momma's. ~smile~


My Dad got in on some of the fun of the week as well.  Bridget took both of the boys over to visit Dad and in the process Coleman brought a whole lot of joy to some of the other residents as well. He never meets a stranger and he gives hugs away very freely.  He's a MESS with a capital M for sure!


And, what do I say?  These two cuties found themselves in a sunflower field a  few days ago and these picture were the result of that visit.  Aren't they just precious???  I mean, when I saw these I could hardly contain myself.  And, I wasn't long about ordering myself canvas prints of a couple of these. I'm sure all you grandmothers out there are just like me and think your Grans are the "absolute cutest!" ~ no joke~  Well, mine are!!! ~wink~

And, that's my random post for today and again, it's so nice to be back, I missed you!

  2. I love how you started off with the hair pics. I imagine that it would be a chuckle to see any of us in the process of styling our hair. Your daughter had a good idea to show us. It looks like you and your family have had some wonderful, memory-making days lately.

  3. This was so much fun. I think sometimes random is the best way to live and certainly to post about. I have known you how many years? I can't believe you allowed a camera into your dressing room much less post the pics. You have come a long way my friend and I say that with a big chuckle. I am so glad you had a lengthy visit with all your bunch together. What a blessing that was. Have a great week, Lea.

  5. Enjoyed your random post Lea. Girl, I too have thick course hair! Maybe I need to start sectioning off my hair too! You cracked me up with "Hair washing day". YES, that is what I call it too and I hate taking the time to wash it! I will always tell Marty after hair washing, "Well, I gotta do my hair from scratch". He knows that means I will be out in bit from the bathroom. LOL! Looks like you had so much fun with the family. Nothing like those grandbabies for sure. Have a good day Lea. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  6. I love these random posts. I've had my daughter home for a couple of weeks and she has been straightening my hair for me. It is such a luxury : ) I have very thick hair too, so it's hard for me to get the back the way she does. I have to do mine in layers too. Looks like a grand time with your grands!

  7. I too spend extra time every third day doing my hair, but isn't it wonderful on the off days to just brush and go?! I love it. Looks like you had some wonderful family time together. xo Deborah

  8. Hi Lea! Such great pictures - thank you for sharing! I also have very thick hair and I found an amazing flatiron! It is a Croc flatiron...it costs about $150 but I can flatiron through all layers of my hair in one sweep! It had reduced my hair time to 5 minutes from 45. Just figured I would share that! Hugs

  9. What a fun post, Lea...I do understand the hair thing. My hair is very dry and only wash it once or twice a week. It always does better after the second or third day. Great memories you made with your family with wonderful photos, especially the ones with the sunflowers!

  10. Thanks for being real with us (the hair pictures). I had to do a double-take to realize I was looking at YOU! We have to laugh at ourselves.

    SUCH cute grandkids, all of them. You are so blessed to have that pond in your back yard. Does your area have alligators at all, or are you far enough north that they don't venture your way?
