Get dressed and off to work

Sometimes it is worth asking for help with your clothes. Or at least, just take a moment and check yourself over in the mirror before you walk out the door.

Yesterday we had two more house showings, I had a temporary cap put on at the dentist and somewhere in there we tried to get some work accomplished!

Hi ho hi ho it's off to work I go ...

Hopscotch on the driveway sounds fun, but all good things must end. It's off to work for another busy week.
We're up to like 106 showings, I lost count this weekend. Pray we get an offer soon.

A new week has begun. Start it off right and worship with your friends.

As you can see, Kardia loved the Cookeville parks.

Saturday, March 28, 2009

It's Saturday!

Kardia and her grandma Adams. A pretty sober look.

I remember my grandma Adams - I thought she was old. Now I know what my grandkids think of me!

We hiked several hours last week at a local state park with some church friends. What a beautiful park.

The sad part to me - I was the oldest of the group!

But cheer up, it's Friday.

Rain, rain, rain ...

It rained most of the night and raining out right now. We aren't in Texas anymore!!

We had our 99th showing yesterday - the big one is almost here - hold onto your hats!

Kissable cheeks

A rainy Wednesday in Cookeville - a bit cooler today, but the weather has been great for the last few days. Spring has sprung.

My little angel

Kaireia borrowed my camera and took some photos of her sister too. Enjoy!

Another beautiful day in Cookeville. I pray you have a blessed day wherever you live!

A great week

Good morning. Another busy week - they seem to just fly by!

What exciting things does God have in store for us this week? What things can we do to please him?

Sunday, March 22, 2009

It's bright outside

I know we haven't seen much of that for a while - but it's the sun!

Get a move on - church starts in a bit. Have a great new week.

More showings yesterday - we're up to 98. The record is in sight!

A quiet Saturday

It's pretty quiet with the kids gone!

Our home is back on the market - the potential buyers wouldn't quit asking for more things thrown in! Think SELL!!

Friday, March 20, 2009

Adios Spidey!

I bet when I get home from work tonight, no none will run up to show off their Spider man t-shirt! No one will ask me to play with coasters! And no one will pull up their shirt for me to tickle their tummy!

I love my grandkids and have had a great week with them. Pray for travel safety as they return to Ohio today.

And welcome Spring!!

A good morning to you!

Would you want to have to face this little mug every morning at breakfast? What a grand way to start a day!

Warmer today

I think a bit warmer today - we're ready for spring.

Having fun with grandkids - where did they get all of that energy!

This photo was from December of 2007 from another life.

Monday, March 16, 2009

Good morning!

A new week and some warm weather is expected. We're getting cabin fever!

Have a great week! And yes, I did see Purdue beat Ohio - and loved it!

Sunday, March 15, 2009

Having a miserable time ...

We've been having a great time with the grandkids - they're perfect, of course.

Katie, Laura and Sandy spent yesterday afternoon with us and we had a lot of fun - even though it rained all day long and we were stuck inside with the grandkids!

Visitors tonight!

It's freezing outside and wet - not usually a good combination. I pray the roads are safe for the kids coming down.

Have a blessed Friday!

Jer 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." (NIV)

Company coming!

Kaireia will be here tomorrow with the whole gang - hooray!

Yesterday's question: Little Sandy Monroe of Tennessee guessed the when - May of 2005. And little Cindy Adams of Cookeville guessed the where - Joplin, Missouri. The event - Reed's graduation from Ozark Christian College.

Wednesday, March 11, 2009


When and where was this photo taken? I'm asking harder questions.

The trees are budding out - the ones with white flowers are gorgeous. God has a beautiful earth.

Have a blessed day!

Tuesday, March 10, 2009

No you can't borrow the car keys!

Cindy guessed the year yesterday - 2002. The month was May.

Kardia is coming to see her grandpa Adams this weekend and she is looking anxious to get going. He''s ready too!

Monday, March 09, 2009

Month and year?

This week's contest - when was this taken?

Who is this handsome young man with Cindy? Of course we know that.

A few days in the 70's before cooler weather returns. Enjoy it while it's here.

March - 2005 - lookin' back

My little girls are growing up!

Another beautiful day in central Tennessee. We're off to Nashville today (after church) hooray!!

Ohio - one year ago

This was the big snow storm a year ago in Ohio. Rach and Kaireia are having fun.

Rach looks a bit like Sandy in the face - don't you think? Scary, huh?

Friday, March 06, 2009

This was last Sunday?

It was almost 70 yesterday and will pass it today. It's hard to believe this photo was taken only last Sunday!

Our SA home sales paperwork is agreed to and signed - our home closing countdown has begun - 24 days to go.

Thursday, March 05, 2009

Warm weather is back

Dig out the swim suits - 60's today and tomorrow and 70's by Saturday. I'm in high cotton again. Have a great day.

Wednesday, March 04, 2009

I'm stunned!

Sit down and be calm - but YES, we have an offer! Pray that it goes well and they accept our counter-offer. They are pre-approved at a lender - hooray!! And want to close by the 30th if this goes through. God is in control ... God is in control ...

My little Princess

Kaireia just started ballerina lessons. I can picture her now. Maybe she'll give me a private grandpa show next time I see her!

Monday, March 02, 2009

Get going - it's Monday!

Quit hiding under those covers and get going! A cold but pretty day. 19 degrees outside right now, but today's high closer to 35 or so. The snow has melted and we're looking 'normal' again - whatever that is around here!

Sunday, March 01, 2009

29 degrees out and light snow

Good morning. We went to bed with heavy rain and woke up to about 2" of snow. Parts of TN has gotten about 19" to 20". Hey - this is MARCH!!

This is out the front door looking across the yard and then back to the house as I was getting the newspaper.
