I'm still on the road more than I want to be but I think that's coming to a end in the next few days. We went to visit my older brother for the day and drove home watching this beautiful sunset.
It's not a great picture since I took it with my cell phone but isn't that stunning!
We also drove down to Monroe, LA and picked up my youngest brother who was in the hospital there getting two more heart stents - he's up to over 30 now. We took him home and sat on his front porch with he and his wife watching the rain.
My sister and aunt came to visit for a few days and after our aunt went to visit a cousin, my sister and I spent lots of hours sitting on the deck watching the lake and talking about getting older. Do you remember when you were younger saying you weren't ever going to be one of those old women who sat around talking about what was wrong with them? We've turned into those old women anyway. :)
I found this picture on Google images and even though it's not my sister and I, it made me think of us and smile. :)
And now we're at our son's for a couple of days. He's a high school football coach so we went to the football game last night. Today we met my cousin and her husband for lunch and then went to visit her mother (who is my ex-aunt...is that really a real relationship?...) who I had not seen in over 50 years and even though she didn't know we were coming she recognized me! She was amazing!
Andrew, our grandson who is 6 and in kindergarten, was enthralled with the tiny little mouse our son caught in the mousetrap last night - he'd been spied the night before scampering in our granddaughter's closet. So he announced in class today that he "had good news and bad news....the good news is we caught a RAT last night and the bad news is there was blood EVERYWHERE!" That was just a bit exaggerated. :)
Andrew and his best friend have played until they can't play any more!
Tomorrow we'll head home and I hope I'll be staying for a while! I'm doing some cross stitching, finishing up some quilt UFOs, going to a quilt group meeting and doing what my older friend says - "every woman needs to sit in her house sometimes and just look at her stuff."
