Hurry up and get ready - church is in a few more minutes!

Kardia is looking fantastic! I love the bow in her hair.

Be careful

Expectant parents don't do crazy things - like go down in subs or up in helicopters. They wear seat belts, drive the speed limit and eat healthy.

Just a thought for the day
- these photos don't necessarily go with my thought for the day.

Columbus museum

Darin sent this to us via his phone-camera. The grandkids are at a museum in Ohio and having a ball playing in water.

Hermitage garden

Looks like a great place for a reception or a wedding.

Another rainy day here in Cookeville - counting down the days until closing on our house.

Andrew Jackson gravesite

President Jackson is buried in a garden to the side of his home - The Hermitage. The grounds are expansive and the garden was nice.

The Hermitage

The front of the Hermitage is hard to even see with all of the huge trees. And in back, some old guy got in the way of my photo.

A Contract!!

We just signed a contract on the house and faxed back to S.A. Hooray!!

Also - had our 180th showing today. 181 for tomorrow will probably be canceled.

Memorial Day

Good morning - we finally agreed to an offer yesterday verbally but as they say - show me the money. The paperwork will be signed in a day to two and a closing before June is over. Showings still ongoing - could be get a prize for most showings?

Have a wonderful day - hey, tomorrow is Saturday all over again!

A long weekend

Everyone gets excited about a long weekend.

We still have two offers we're working with - keep praying one works out. Also showings are still coming in - up to #175 over the weekend.

Friday, May 22, 2009

The answer is ...

Yesterday's sonogram relates to one of these people. I think I've given you enough clues! If not, call one of their parents and you'll find out in the first 30 seconds of your call.

Yesterday the house was on the market a year - we had two offers and are negotiating with both! Pray one works out - we feel good about it.

Also hit my goal weight of 175 today - hooray, no dessert is safe tonight!

A new baby on the way - but whose could it be?

No - Cindy isn't pregnant. Guess again!

(We have a LOW offer on the house - pray we can work it out)

A beautiful day

Just got called to a job site so gotta go. Have a wonderful day - looks like a sunny day here.

Hanging out with friends

Reed and Audrey are in Chicago - they took the free tickets in trade for their lay-over last night. Hope they had a fun California trip. Get home safe!

Kaireia is just hanging out today. Those crazy Kleeman kids!

Showings 169 and 170 yesterday.

Wacky Monday

It got down to 40 degrees last night - brrrr. The debate at church last night was to which winter it was - blackberry winter, stump winter or whippoorwill shrill winter.

In Texas we had plain old winter and then moved on. They don't move on here.

Love you all - have a great week!

Cute granddaughter

I was cleaning photos off of my phone (do all phones have cameras now?) and came across this photo of Kardia I took in a restaurant quite awhile back.

Enjoy - and have a blessed day.

Showing count - 168

Lazy day

Well, I was sitting on the patio a minute ago and it started raining. In with the coffee, computer and phone. I was playing with technology - ha! Taking photos - emailing to myself and posting online. If I was quicker, you'd see me in the photo too.

Our 166th showing today.

A thought - 12 folks in jail for speaking their mind against abortion and a person who believes murdering babies is okay is speaking at a Catholic University. Is this world upside down or what!!

Roar ...

Neidon loves the lions at the Columbus Zoo. This would be a great day for a zoo visit (with some grandkids).

We had 9 showings yesterday - up to #165.

Thursday, May 14, 2009

It's Thursday - we're almost there!

Another beautiful day - I think I got a new project in Goodlettsville yesterday - God is good.

A second (return) showing today at our house - pray they fall in love with the home AND have an approved loan.

I like the cookie in Kardia's hand - she's like a boy scout - "Be prepared".

It's Wednesday - don't relax yet

Good morning - I've an appointment with a church at 8 am in Goodlettsville - about 30 minutes north of Nashville. Right now I feel like I should have driven up last night and slept in the car! Ha!

Cookie monster

Kardia likes the slide - but if you look closely in her hand, she is still holding onto a cookie. She's just like her grandpa, she loves her food!

Monday, May 11, 2009

Monday morning ... already!

Knock the sand out of your hair, wash your hands and get ready for week - hi ho, hi ho, it's off to work we go ...

#153 showings to date. We're tired of this.

New playhouse

I think Dale is enjoying the playhouse more than the kids. It reminds me of the last time they were here and we were watching a kid's movie together - I looked up and I was watching the movie alone and they had left sometime during the show.

Our 151st showing today!

Happy Mother's Day!!!

Columbus Zoo

Kaireia petting a snake - I'll watch from afar.

Three more showings today - up to #149. We're getting close.

More rain today - almost a record month already.

Almost sand box time

It's Friday - one more day and we get to play in the sand box. These guys look pretty busy - I wonder if they would even notice us if we walked up?
More rain in Cookeville - a week of rain - if I had grass if would look great! My weeds look wonderful.

Thursday, May 07, 2009

Tall grass

Rain, rain and rain - our grass is so tall I'll need helping mowing. It appears Darin has some help mowing his yard.

Monday, May 04, 2009

May showers bring ...?

A rainy weekend, probably over 3" for the weekend and a tornado sighted east of us in Crossville. More rain projected all week.

We're up to like 137 showings and no offer. Our Realtor thought we'd get one this weekend or today at the latest, hmmm ...

Check out my pretty grandkids!

My crown

Proverbs 17:6 (ESV) "Grandchildren are the crown of the aged, and the glory of children is their fathers."

Have a great Sunday - God is so good!!

Saturday, May 02, 2009

Relax, it's Saturday

NOW you can kick your shoes off and relax - it's Saturday!

It rained a lot yesterday and stormed all night. A light rain right now and more expected today.

A good day to stay in and play games with a friend.

Friday, May 01, 2009

Ready for work?

Get dressed and put your shoes on - it's not Saturday yet - but it IS FRIDAY!

Aren't my grandkids gorgeous?!!

Hello to the Wamplers in Budapest - pray their home in SA sells soon - we're not the only ones trying to sell a home.
