Still among the living!

Gosh, but I've been trying to catch up with reading blogs and commenting, all the while needing to post to my own blog. I'm doin' my best! "The hurrier I go, the behinder I get!" :-)

This week has been busier than most AND I've been dealing with a feeling of almost bordering on exhaustion. Go figure. My friend, Pat, says that I try to do too much. BUT I tend to disagree with her, BUT today I've sincerely endeavored to take it easy and rest, since we don't have little Jaylon today.

Ed is not working this summer, which is his first summer off in six years! And I am enjoying having him home so much!!! He helps me with Jaylon so much! AND speaking of Jaylon.....he's growing by leaps and bounds and is such a cutie pie!!!

And he's such a happy little guy! We have so much fun with him!
I am sometimes amazed at how many pictures I've taken and continue to take of him! Oh my!! LOL
I finally decided on and bought a new set of dishes. It seems to take me FOREVER to make decisions sometimes! But, alas! I finally found just what I wanted! I've had them for a few weeks and just love them!
Yes, this is a VERY random post! :-)

Some evenings when Daniel comes in after work to get little Jaylon, I am just amazed by how handsome he is and how nice he looks! (I know, I know, it's because I'm his mother *smile*) And he always dresses so nicely. Soooo, I just HAD to take a picture or three the other evening! :-)

And here is the picture of my 40th class reunion that I told you about a couple of weeks ago here! We did have such a great evening, talking, laughing, eating.....there HAS to be eating, you know!!! :-) I am the 2nd person from the left on the front row and my twin brother, Johnny, is the third person from the right on the front row. :-)

I made Spanish Rice for lunch today and dressed it up with tomatoes, lettuce, black olives, sour cream, grated cheese and tortilla chips. It was sooooo delicious!!! It is one of my favorites!! AND I think it looked so pretty in one of the bowls from my new dishes! :-)

I am going to close this post and take myself off to bed! I pray you are having a wonderful weekend, good weather and are enjoying the goodness of the Lord in your little part of the world!!! :-)

Pretty dishes! I love white dishes.

Moms can brag on their's allowed : ) I understand that feeling of looking at your child and being caught off guard by them. I know motherhood is tough work but its so worth it.

Daniel is a handsome young man. He looks so much like his dad. I agree with Joyce -- moms can brag on their kids!

I like white dishes -- they can go with anything.

Hope you can get some R&R this weekend.

What a nice looking man! And yes it is all right for us to brag on our kids and grandkids! You sound busy also. We just got home from another trip to Nebraska. Good to be home, I am not sure if I will ever get caught

until next time... nel

I love seeing how much Jaylon resembles Daniel when he laughs or smiles. And I had never really noticed how much Daniel and Ed favored until you posted the pic of them standing together! Good looking family, Jewel!
