The grapes are growing and thanks to a friend who is a professional grape grower (as in, a wine maker), they are growing better and prettier than before.
I can't wait to eat them.
Mother's Day 2015 involved meat. Lots of meat.
Mother's Day 2015 proved to be a very happy day for Buddy the Dog, too. We gave him a Fred Flinstone sized bone and put him outside...he sat and drooled at the door until we felt sorry for him and let him in.
Oh, how I love this dog.
5/7th of us were together.
We scored a last minute Beachcomber reservation for breakfast...something that never happens. It was cloudy and chilly and the waves were high and the coffee was hot and the beignet were incredible.
I needed that morning.
We walked a few miles along the beach and were kinda quiet the whole time. I'm feeling a bit unsettled lately...work is super busy, the house is super full, time is moving super fast.
I needed a quiet morning with that guy that I like so much...a morning to just be quiet. I like him. A lot.
There is something about the ocean...and toes in the sand, that grounds me. I feel the same way about being in the mountains so I'm thinking for me it has something to do with just being outside in the fresh air.
I like that it makes me feel small.
I like that it makes my God feel big.
We did a big Costco run yesterday and yes, we did get some food too. A little anyway.
Houston, we have a hot sauce problem over here in our little house on our little street. Everyone has a fave (and one of mine puts hot sauce on every. single. thing he eats which drives me nuts. cough, couch, brian, cough, cough) but I personally think anything chipotle is good.
I've been making my summer list...it's pretty much the same as every other summer list. Clean out closets, read a bunch of books, catch up on movies, sit for hours in my garden, grow lots of veggies, complete a new to me bible study.
I love lists. Sometimes I even write 'make a list' on my list so I can cross it off.
