One of these days I am going to put my feet up and leave them that way for a week. But then I think, someday the kids will all be gone and there I will sit with my feet up and wish I had things to do. So I embrace the business.
Last Friday I took Grace and a few of the other kids to Austin for her birthday. It was Grace’s 22nd birthday and there were some shops there that she likes, so off we went. But not before the brothers and sisters gave her some gifts.
It was the most gorgeous drive. The Texas wildflowers are in bloom and we just soaked it all in. So, so pretty. I could have kicked myself for not taking my camera. These are from my phone.
Noah was dying to go to the Lego store. He probably would have stayed all day if I would let him.
On Saturday morning Patience and I went out to a friend’s farm. They were having a planting party for their enormous garden. We went to take pictures. I’m not much of a dirt person. I will let Patience show you the pictures she took because I was busy sitting and fanning myself. I can give you tips on decorating, but I’m not much help when it comes to gardens.
Yesterday I filled shop orders while the boys mowed. Don’t you just love a freshly mown yard? It smells so good and feels so crisp and neat. Crisp and neat makes me happy. I could live on a golf course. Except I don’t play golf and I don’t want to.
Today is Patience’s 15th birthday so we’re off again to do some shopping. She invited her sisters to go, so we’ll paint the town red and be silly. I am sure there will be some Chick-fil-A involved and probably a lot of trying on clothes and wondering why they make everything so tight these days.
Maybe tomorrow I will put my feet up. This is a lot of activity for this tired mamma.
