It is HOT here in Texas

The temps this week call for at least 100 and more and you can definitely tell it when you go outside.  I HATE Texas heat!  So what do you do about it?  You have a COLD beer on the back porch.  And of course, I had company!

Babysitting

It has been a LONG time since I have babysat but today, I got to babysit my “step” grandchild.  This is Greg’s first grandchild.  Kathryn Elizabeth is now 3 months old and how much trouble is it to babysit one that age.  Not much.  After a little fussy beginning, I fed her and then put her down for a nap – a FIVE hour nap.  In fact, I woke her up to change her diaper and she wasn’t very happy with that.  She was in lullaby land sleeping very peacefully!

Flat Head!

I got my hair trimmed today and after the cut I shocked my stylist.  I told her I wanted my hair styled flat!  It was so funny, she felt of my forehead and asked, are you feeling ok??  See, for the past 20+ years I have always asked her to punk me up – meaning, I don’t like my hair flat on top, I have to have the height. Plus, I rarely have my hair done the same as before, I am always trying a different style and color (I can’t stand wearing my hair the same way ALL the time, drives me nuts).  I decided to do something different this time.  In the end I think I like it.  I will probably not wear it this way that often.  But, I LOVE the back as it reflects what she did a couple months ago as far as the color and “blonde chunking” as I call it.

Purple for the Hummers

I decided to change the color of the sugar water for the hummers (actually, I did this the last time around too, but the color was darker).  I think the hummers like purple as it seems the feeder was empty faster 🙂

Green in July!

I took this picture on Sunday and notice how green everything is (especially in the outlying areas) – in July!  We have gotten some nice rain the past few weeks that makes things green up.  I don’t remember it raining in July in quite some time!

Trip to Biloxi

We went on a little vacation last week to Biloxi, Mississippi (I love spelling that state!).  We stayed at the Hard Rock Hotel (it is SO cool) and did a little gambling.  Of course, I left money there (as did Greg).  Besides gambling, we “explored” Biloxi and laid out by the pool area.  In the evening hours when we weren’t gambling, we enjoyed the entertainment at the Center Bar.  I was very impressed with the two groups that performed on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday nights (Goldy Locks and Supercharger).  The beach area was VERY nice with white sand and grasses here and there.  We didn’t actually go to the beach and I wish we had if not just to take photos.  Maybe another time.

R and R Again

That’s Remi and Roscoe!  Greg has spoiled both dogs by letting them ride in the Polaris.  Remi used to jump up in it and ride and now Roscoe does too.  Can we say rotten????
