Miscellany Monday

lowercase letters

The second Monday of October and we are definitely experiencing fall-like weather here in NE, Louisiana.  Yea, for us! But, for now I'll just share my miscellaneous thoughts with you and sweet Carissa.

A boy and his pumpkin.....
When my daughter sent this, my heart just almost stopped for a minute.  Clancy looks so grown up in this picture and every day of his 5 years.  Oh, my goodness, he really is growing up!  Love this! 

The Bunco Babes...
We have a group of 12 gals that play the "mindless" game of Bunco once a month and we have the best time.  A lot of us seldom see each other any other time.  We have a  nice meal, lots of laughs and enjoy our time together.  This past Thursday evening was our night to play and the gal that did the meal outdid herself.  We had hot ham sandwiches, potato soup and then cupcakes all fixed fancy in the little goblets.  She found the idea off Pinterest and it was so, so cute!  Whatever did we do before Pinterest???  

Football fun....
First, let me say, I know little to nothing about the game of football.  Our son never played and that's probably a part of the reason and the other, it all just looks like a jumbled mess to me. ~chuckle~ But, I'm married to a man and we have a son and we run with a group of folks that all LOVE football and especially when our Tigers are playing.  So, we are often a part of a gathering that includes watching the game, enjoying fellowship and eating good food.  And, I'm all about that part for sure.  Such was the case this past Saturday evening.  We all wore our purple and gold and cheered the Tigers on to victory and enjoyed a delicious celebration meal.  Any excuse to get together, be it football or otherwise, I'm in!!!

The birthday gal.....
Speaking of a celebration.........a group of friends gathered yesterday at lunch to celebrate Gerri (pictured above).  Her birthday is tomorrow.  She had no idea that we were doing this and when she walked in, several of her friends were there and she was surprised.  I had found this cute tiny vase at the thrift store and I took it to a local florist and had her make a  fresh arrangement for it and we placed it at her plate.  I think she felt very special and very celebrated.

May you have a wonderful new week!

  1. I'm not a football fan either, but any excuse to get together with friends is a good one in my book!

    My goodness, Clancy sure looks all grown in that picture!

  2. Clancy has the cutest face. He does look all grown up in that picture. Have a good week!

  3. I am certainly glad that I'm not the only one who doesn't care for football! 😉

    I love looking at Pinterest and I am amazed at the things people come up with....

    Your grandson is too cute!

  4. Adorably handsome grandson!
    I have never tried Bunco but everyone seems to love it that plays!
    I love football, I kept stats for my High School Varsity teams for 4 years..oddly enough, was happy that my son's didn't show an interest in playing. They love the sport but played baseball and basketball :-) I would have been a hot mess watching the get beat up on a football field.
    How sweet that you all honored your friend with a birthday glad I stopped by!!


  5. Oh yes, I agree ... Pinterest is a great thing, indeed! And of course, you've just gotta love football - it does have the tendency to bring people together (: Loved your post. Blessings to you & have a wonderful week!

  6. You Bastrop ladies will use any excuse for a party. And, you know how to do one well. I just love seeing familiar faces in your pictures and hear of happenings there. Wish Geri a happy belated birthday from me.

  7. Well my hubby and boys all played football and we are starting in now on grandsons, so there has never been much of an escape for me,lol I have managed to learn the game, but barely. My oldest son was the varsity quarterback for 3 years and let me tell you FUN FUN times, but I watched with my heart in my throat. My other two were linemen. But Melody is probably the biggest fan of all...sigh, even she ALWAYS wants to watch. Clancy looks adorable in that pic! Hope your week is good!

  8. Don't you know how fast Clancy will grow up!! He looks so handsome in the picture! Loved the dessert in the goblet at your Bunko party!

  9. I think you would be such a fun friend! And I love Clancy's photo. They grow up so quickly. Thank you for all of your kind comments to me on Heart Choices. I really appreciate them.

    Blessings and love,

  10. What a handsome little guy you have! I can imagine he loves spending time with you.

    The food at the game night looked so good and creatively shared. You must have so much fun together. Pinterest is a big part of our times together too.

    I enjoy my visits here.


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!
