I thought this would be a good song to listen to today…Life really is a fragile magic ❤ Blessings to all for a better week. Let’s have a re-do for Tuesday…
Monday…Just another Monday. It was quiet. I watch the The Weather Channel literally all day long. Well not so much watch it, but have the TV on that channel for background noise. When I hear something interesting, I take a look. Yesterday was no different. They were having storms out in VA so I msg.’d my guys out in Richmond. I like to give them a heads up as they are working and I’m not sure they are aware of the weather outside. I no sooner did that than everything started to go crazy out there !!!! Here’s what I mean
As I am watching this unfold on TV’s Weather Channel, one of my guys is texting me. “We are in the basement, the siren’s are going off.” Just the sort of thing you want your son to be texting you in the middle of the day. I knew exactly where all of this was happening as we spend a lot of time in Richmond with our guys.
Thankfully they were safe and they did not have any damage to property, whew…I’m just glad they made it through the storms. Scary stuff, fragile magic…
I think it is turning out really good, I like it!!!! But I like everything he creates. He has not put an Amen on it yet (signature) so I figure he still has more to do.
The weekend went my really fast as they usually do. It was quiet and fun. It’s nearly hockey season and I am so excited for that. We are going to try to go to one game a month so I hope they are good, the Chicago Blackhawks. No matter, I’ll still have fun even it they aren’t. Hopefully we will make it to the Winter Classic this year. Looks like we will along with our guys. Makes Christmas really simple and simple is always good. Get ready Connie and Matthew it’s almost here !!!!
Hope everyone got through the hurricane okay. Flooding is really terrible. I’ve been through those before and they just seem to go on and on forever. The weather has been very good here. Hot and sunny, it’s suppose to rain this week though. We really need some though. Can’t believe summer is over, so sad.
Hope everyone has a great week. Happy Monday, Blessings ❤
Happy Monday, looks likes it going to be an interesting week out East. Stay safe out there in Virginia, Matthew and Connie…Looks like you are in for a lot of hopefully just rain. Remember water, food & pet food, batteries & flashlights, gas, money/cash, solar power USB charger, yadayadayada 🙂 It’s a mom thing and I was just listening to TWC talk about a hurricane survival kit. Oh and it’s just good sense 🙂
Here is a look as what the Painter was working on the weekend. It’s almost done, but I like the process.
I like it ❤ I think it’s turning out very nice. Have a great week everyone and stay safe out there if you are out on the East Coast. Blessings ❤
I’m going with Leonard Cohen. This is just a graphite sketch that he did for me. It sits right in front of me for inspirtation. There’s quite the story of how long it took him to write one of the his most famous songs, “Halleujah.” It’s one of my favorite songs. I really enjoy the one recorded by Bon Jovi…
Yes today is my wedding anniversary so I promise you won’t have to hear me write about it any more. Is August over yet ?? This is such an exhausting month and it has been so hot !!!
So today we spent the day downtown in the city and although it is a beautiful city today was not cooler by the lake. That’s always the weather forecast, especially in the spring, they always say the high will be 85 degrees but only 50 degrees by the lake, seriously. Today it was not.
We went down by the river on the river walk and it was hot. I was taking a lot of pictures because I think the city is really cool in pictures.
Then we went to his favorite restaurant, Chicago Cut. I remember last year on our anniversary I had a dental emergency during dinner so I didn’t get to enjoy our dinner. This year it was his turn. He had to have a tooth pulled this week but I think if even if all of his teeth fell out he’d still have a steak. Here are a few pics of the restaurant…
He goes there all the time w/customer’s so he gets the VIP treatment and they give us the best seat in the house. They also gave us a dessert on the house.
Here’s a couple more pictures from our wedding day. Looking forward to the next 40 ❤ years !!!
This picture was one of my favorites…You know on wedding day how pictures are always challenging. This picture I remember the photographer was having a hard time getting it just right. Just as he was going to shoot the picture I dropped my bouquet and I didn’t move because as you see my dad was giving me crap, my sister Liz next to dad was laughing and mom was just trying to pick up the flowers and get the picture taken. I just put my hands up and covered my face because I was done before it even started. It was good being all together. I think this might be the one of the last family pictures we had taken together. Who knew …
This is us when we were little, a year apart…Mary was born in 1955 and me (the last one) was born in 1959. Those were the days ❤ Sisters…
I can’t go down memory lane w/o putting this song up. OMG I still sing this to him every time it comes on and we are together !!!
Yes this was the year we started dating. July 16, 1976. It was a long time ago, but it feels just like yesterday. We still have the best time, through thick and thin, and believe me we have been through it. Car accident, coma. Baby loss…Financial crashes, homes lost, children abandoning their family. Can’t control what you can’t contol, other people. Their decisions are their own !!!! We control what we can and we’re still having fun and he’s still the one !!! Life is great with him. He’s my forever ❤
