Miscellany Monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

It's Monday and time to link up with sweet Carissa for our randomness.What a fun way to begin a new week!

 I swear I really did feel a "  nip"  of fall in the air Saturday morning. It got me plum excited and I began thinking of fall decorations.  Didn't pull them out, but I'm thinking in the next couple of weeks I'm going to "  go for it"   and hope that it causes it to "  show it's face."   

Strawberry Lemonade 

My newest favorite drink is Sonic's Strawberry Lemonade.  It use to be their tea, but I tried this one day (at my DIL's recommendation) and I'm addicted.  Don't know what it is about those Sonic drinks but somehow my vehicle can hardly go by one without pulling through and grabbing a drink.  My Hubby just does not get it at all. ~grin~  I doubt it's the only thing he doesn't get. ~big grin~

Neat and tidy and a girly girl
Our little Princess and her Dad and Mom went out to eat with us the other night.  She is the neatest little eater I've ever seen for not quite 2 years old.  She is so very precise with her little fingers and when dipping her fries in catsup she never makes a mess and it goes straight in her mouth, not around her mouth.  I love it! She's such a "  girly girl"   and she loves putting on her CiCi's shoes too. Believe it or not, she took several steps with her feet in the shoes just like this. 

Meet my Virginia brother

My oldest brother was here this past week for a couple of days to visit our Dad. We enjoyed him so much and he is quite an accomplished guitarist and he was able to round up one while here and enjoyed serenading our Dad with some of the old hymns while visiting with him. He and I use to enjoy singing together when we were teenagers and he accompanied us on the guitar.  What memories!

Coloring that gray right out

Every 4 -5 weeks you will find me at my favorite salon with my favorite hair sylist.  She colors and trims and offers free counseling on the side. ~laugh~  I'm sure that she could write a "  best seller"   with some of the "  stuff"   she has heard throughout her years of dealing with women.  She is definitely a bright spot in my day!  

 Blessings my friends for a beautiful week!

Welcome to my little corner!


  1. What better therapy than some time with a little one ... and some time at the salon. ;-)

    No nip in the air here. It's going to get close to 100 again in another day or two.

    Continuing to pray for you all, dear one!

  2. Enjoyed your randonness this morning. I wrote my Monday post last week before we left for Indiana, so had it ready to go this morning. I love planning ahead.

  3. I enjoyed all your miscellany today. My oldest daughter was just like your little one-so particular and dainty. My youngest has always been more a 'charge at life' kind of girl. Both kinds are sweet though : )

    Have a nice week-I continue to keep your dad in my prayers.

  4. We don't have a sonic near us but I am going to have to go and try their drinks. Everyone raves about them. Love her little toes in the sandles.

  5. We enjoyed a 'real fruit slush' at a Sonic a couple weeks ago while traveling ~ I think it was strawberry/lemon. .!.Yum.!. And a loaded burger. ..Oh my.. I'm ready to go back! : )

  6. look at you getting your hair done... you're so pretty!

    it's so cool that you and your bro used to do music together. my hubby always enjoys singing with his sisters. there's just something about a harmony between vocal cords that come from the same blood. that sounds gross in a way, but it's true!

    waiting for that nip to stick around! bring on 80 degrees, at least! today the high was 110. it still feels like summer is in FULL swing.

    so happy you enjoyed your time with your lil' princess!!!

  7. cute post! I LOVE your blog and also wanted to say thank you for the SWEET comment you left on my post today...made my day!

  8. i just loved today's post! thank YOU for brightening my day as well. :0)

  9. Great post! It was only about 63 this morning. I loved putting on a jacket to go out! Unfortunately, it's not supposed to last much past today.

  10. Fun post...can't even smell the hint of fall here...we are still over 100 degrees, going for the all time most 100 plus days in a year...ugh!

    The little feet in the shoes are just the most precious and best of all.

    Glad you had time with your brother...still praying for all of you.

  11. Hey there lady! I've been praying for you and for your dad. We lost our power for a while due to Hurricane Irene so I am checking in with you to see how things are going. Please know I've had you in my prayers. Much love to you!!


So glad you stopped by and hope you enjoyed your visit. I love your comments and read each and every one of them and I always try to reply to them. Blessings to you this day!
