Wazzup Around House of Horne?

It’s Springtime! Flowers, delicious weather, the wrapping up of another school year, and all that goes with that. Here is some of what we’ve been up to….

*Painting many, many shelves to finish up the apparently months-long project to try to clean out and freshen up those bedrooms closets.

*Transforming my dining room from a storage facility into a place for eating once again! From this…

To this is progress, yes?

Alright, well if I’m gonna keep it real, I need to step back a little so my readers can see the edges of the room.

So yes, there are still a few stray suitcases and window treatments for which I have not yet found “hiding places”! But I am so thankful for progress!

*Celebrating the end of volleyball and soccer season, A Chik-Fil-A cow sighting, and the start of baseball! I like how the Cow almost looks as if he is sporting a Covenant Jersey too!

*Working on our yoga – I have never seen Jonathan sit so still for so long in over nine years of living with him. Thinking that Wii Fit was a smart purchase, Honey!

*Enjoying Mother’s Day food, fun, and family at Texas De Brazil.

*Neighborhood fox hunts: a momma and her cubs have taken up residence two doors down under our neighbors’ storage shed. We have been rewarded for our diligence by a terrific front row seat to a show of the two cubs wrestling and playing in the grass at dusk while Momma stands guard nearby. Until my Techie Dude uploads the video in a way I can display here, you will have to take my word for it though. And instead enjoy this rather fuzzy shot of two of our resident foxes.

*Summer buzz cuts. This year is significant, as it is Josiah’s first ever “buzz”. Which, he informs us all, is “so much better than a normal haircut”. In case you didn’t know.

*Soaking up a little Grammy-time before she heads back to Savannah. Her Dad, Jay’s Grandpa, has had a very hard time of it these last months…Grammy Ruth will be spending another three weeks helping her sister care for him. We miss her but are thankful she can be there. If you think of it, Ruth, Judy and Gpa John can all use your prayers.

*Fruit loops in my coffee this morning: again, you’re going to have to trust me, and just visualize this one. For whatever reason, one of my little darlings figured my morning drug, er drink would taste even better with this treat added.

Now that I think of it, “Fruit Loops in My Coffee” sounds like a perfect name for a Mommy Blog…Hmmmm…maybe we should contemplate a name change. Whadya think, Techie Dude?

    Cute, encouraging, and full of wonder. All this, and plumpy, too.

    Godspeed, Grammy Ruth; we’ll miss you too, and we’ll pray for your time there and your safe return!
