Another month

Another month has passed and it's the middle of JULY! Goodness!

Since Kountze, I spent a week in SA packing boxes and sightseeing with my adopted granddaughter, Nicole. Then a week in Palestine with Ian and Nicole (Karen joined us later). Then Lydia and Caleb arrived, Karen and sons left, and I made decisions about paint for my bedroom (next week's project).

So after Lydia leaves and I give this house a good cleaning (!), I will dismantle my bedroom to repaint it a soft aqua color. I'm leaving the black and white toile decor and tweaking the accessories to suit. It's been a while since I've done a decorating project in my house, and I"m excited about the change.

A date to a local play on Sunday, a quick trip to Mansfield next weekend, and LOTS of scrapbooking in August will lead to the fall activities:
September: new baby in AR
October: scrapbook retreat in Weatherford, hosting Guion Music Club
November: Thanksgiving celebration (location?) and Caleb's 2nd birthday

Have I mentioned I'm glad I retired? haha

I'm sure you're loving retirement! I can't remember who I was talking to about how crazy the past few months have been for you, and that person said, "Well would you really expect her to just sit a home?" (It was probably Janet, I would guess.)

I'm not quite sure if "retired" is the right word for you, perhaps full-time grandma? I'm excited to see your paint colors and can't wait to see what you decide for the rest of the house.
