HELLO Monday!!

It's time for some Monday HELLO's and today's will consume a whole of pics from my Hubby's 50th High School Reunion that was held this past weekend.  And, of course, some other "stuff."  
Happy new week!

HELLO 1965 Grads......plans have been underway for months and months and this past weekend the grand occasion took place.  It was the 50th high school reunion of Hubby's graduation class.  I think their first reunion was for their 10th year and Hubby and I have not missed one of them.  They are such a great group and a large majority of them have kept such a strong friendship.
Friday evening began the festivities with a wonderful dinner at one of the area's finest restaurants.  Then, on Saturday evening the events took place at one of our local venues with a wonderful catered meal and lots and lots of visiting and reminiscing. I'm so glad that I married into this class as many of them have become very dear to me.
HELLO fallen trees and a lot of cleanup....this past Wednesday afternoon an awful storm hit a large portion of our area.  I'm not sure if it was classified as a tornado or not but, nonetheless, it "tore up jack" for a whole lot of folks.  Hundreds and hundreds of trees were completely uprooted and fell in all directions.  Amazingly, no one was injured and very few fell on houses.  But, roads were blocked, power was out for many and the clean up will be in process for weeks to come.  Of course, it was made all the worse because the ground is so completely saturated.  We missed everything except the torrential rain.

HELLO new house's more of the same, still painting and still working on all the tile.  Last week the painters started on all the doors in the house and the tile guys worked on finishing up the Master Shower and bath.
 The painters also painted my laundry room ceiling.  The color is Copper Wire but it looks a little like burnt orange in this photo.  This is going to be my "fun room" where my decorator and I chose some colors and fabrics that will certainly keep the room "livened up" and fun.  We are using a beige and black zebra print fabric on the window treatment.  I can't wait to see it all come together.
Things continue to go well but we STILL need a driveway!!! It stopped raining long enough for the yard to be graded and sloped but now we need forms for the driveway and then concrete.  And, we have not had enough rain free days to dry the ground out enough to lay the forms or even think about concrete.  But, surely it will happen.  As it stands now it is looking like it could well be the first of July before we get to move. UGH!!!!!
Have a happy new week!!!!

Welcome to my little corner!


  1. Good morning! High school reunions are always fun....hubby grew up in So. Dakota but he has made the trip back a few times to attend some of his. Compared to mine his was small and he had a large group of friends that have stayed in touch pretty well over the years..especially considering he moved out of state. I on the other hand came fro,m a HUGE high school here in California, and stayed in touch with my two best friends anyway. We lunch together frequently to this day. But we only went to one of my reunions (the 15th I think?) and honestly while it was nice to catch up with some of them, a bit, I was done after that, lol. My "good" friends I see all the time. Looks like quite the storm..thank God no one was hurt. You really have had a wet spring. California could sure use some of that. We were supposed to get rain these last couple of days and got "maybe" a light misting once or twice. And now this week it's into the 90's again...sigh. Not ready for heat. Going to be a LONG dry summer. I am as anxious (almost,. haha) as you are to get into that new house. It's been a long anticipation. Enjoy the rest of your week!

  2. Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving the sweet comment. Love the direction the laundry room is headed in. Can't wait seeing the final results! Building a house is challenging.
