Cold in Cookeville

24 degrees out and currently snowing - another 1" projected. I walked out for the mail and it was crusty - frozen ice over snow. A great day to stay home! My house is the one with the garage door open. The others are my neighbors.

Waving already!

Anna was waving at Cindy - must have thought it was a video camera!

Lots of snow and ice projected today - pray Cindy gets home okay - she was to have left a couple of hours ago and hopefully home close to noon.

Go HERE and see if you recognize anyone. These are photos from the Eagle watch we went to a few weeks ago. (Click on the red 'here' word above).

Very relaxed

Anna must have been watching the Presidential Speech - I was dozing off too!

Lots of weather coming through today - wherever you are, be careful my friends!

Kaireia just likes to dance

The warmest day this week will be today and then a super cold front with freezing rain and snow tomorrow and Friday - bundle up!

Some people just know how to dress!

A cold morning

Cindy took this last night and sent it to me. I love this photo.

Snow flurries yesterday and freezing weather this morning. Snow, sleet and freezing rain projected by the end of the week - brrrr!

A brand new week

Cindy took this photo last night and sent it to me - Anna has her eyes open and is checking everything out.

Lots of rain this past weekend - around 3" or so all together. Lots of places getting snow this week too - be safe!

Saw Amanda's baptism yesterday - we're proud of you Amanda!!

I bet I'm missing the action going on in Ohio.

I did get a lot of work done yesterday - just need to wrap up the check set today and mail out tomorrow - have a great day - looks like snow all over the place!

Two are better than one

It's Friday - I hope you had someone to help you through the week. Pray for Cindy as she heads for Ohio today. Perfect timing - I have a house to completely draw up this weekend - woohoo.

2 weeks old yesterday

Anna Elizabeth is growing like a weed - can you believe she is two weeks old already? It seems like she just came home from the hospital.

This little papoose is such a pretty little thing. Her Grandma Adams is going up to see her tomorrow for a week - she'll be spoiled.

TV witha friend

Mid-week already! Off to Knoxville for a pre-bid meeting this morning with a compadre and then back as soon as possible to get work done.

Check out Reed's or Audrey's facebook page for latest baby photos. Their blog has some nice ones too!

Little darling

I always seem to have some young thing hugging on my neck - pretty nice! Enjoy it when you can.

Another nice day in Cookeville - mid 50''s - lots of paperwork, a meeting in Lebanon and maybe a nice surprise from God - we'll see.

Monday once more ...

Time to get off the couch and get going! Don't make me come over there!!

We're in the 50's as our highs this week - feels like summer!

Eagle Watching

It was COLD on the water, but we had 7 eagle sightings! The photos don't do the eagles justice - they were great!

Saturday, January 16, 2010

Can I play grandma?

We're off to Dale Hollow Lake in a few minutes for a morning of Eagle watching from a barge out on the lake - we're layered up and ready to go!

Have a wonderful Saturday - I hope YOU got to sleep in!

Warmer Friday

Even this old grandpa got to hold Anna. I think I heard her say - 'papaw' when I was holding her. Her first word!

Thursday, January 14, 2010

No boots today

Warmer weather today in Cookeville - low 50's! Can't believe I think that is warm!!

Have a great day and remember how good our God is!

PS Jim Bird became a grandpa yesterday - woohoo! He is looking old.

Arms are full

Everyone likes new babies! These cousins look might happy about Anna.

Supposed to hit low 40's today - woohoo! We had 248 hours below freezing!! That's over 10 days folks - my joints may never thaw out.

Two cute chicks

Anna and Audrey - looking great for church and Anna's dedication. Anna looks pretty relaxed.

Have a great day! And stay warm!!

Baby Dedication

Anna Elizabeth was dedicated to God this past Sunday. Parents and grand-parents were all there to participate and enjoy!

God is so good!

Friday, January 08, 2010

Smiles all around

I leave today after work today to help out with this new grand baby - they probably have her spoiled already. The first job will be prying her out of Cindy's hands!

Pray for for my travel safety - still snowing here and in Ohio - love you all!

Always waiting on a woman

Anna is not here yet = they are in the hospital and expect a new baby this evening = we'll see! I hope I can post a baby photo tomorrow.

Another bitter cold day - 10 degrees with high of 30 - woohoo! But then snow, snow and snow is forecast.

Tuesday, January 05, 2010

It's so cold my words froze yesterday ...

I miss the grand kids but not the snow - Cindy is enjoying both until Anna arrives.

Whereas in Cookeville a heart 13 degrees going up to 26 today - downright balmy.

Stay warm, travel safe - have a wonderful day!

Hiho's off to work I go ...

Well, I decided I got food poisoning a week ago - I was finishing up some of our Y2K food and didn't realize it had a 10 year expiration date. I've never been good with remembering dates.

No grandbaby news yet - Anna is gaining all the attention she can before she joins this world! She's got some catching up to do.

I bet you I write '2009' a dozen times this week before it sinks in I'm off a year - have a great week!

Sunday, January 03, 2010

I'm back ...

11 degrees here in Cookeville this morning - now that is almost cold! A non-eventful trip home, snowfall over half of the drive and 18 to 21 degrees all day. Cindy stayed behind in the 'eternal baby waiting room' at the Kleeman's house. I will probably drive back next weekend - if Anna ever decides to come!
