A windy Monday

We're off and running - a new work week has begun!

Cindy is home and enjoyed the grand-kids - the painted rooms look great so Lincoln can come now.

Wind, tornado and flood warnings out between here and Ohio - be safe out there today!

Rainy, rainy day ...

Good morning! Sunday already - wow, a brand new week.

I'm looking forward to church, but it would be easy to stay home today - it's downright nasty outside. It looks like rainy weather from here all the way north to Ohio and it stretches fairly far east and west as well.

It's rumbling outside as the first storm of the day rolls in. Wherever you are - be safe and have a blessed day!

A chilly start

Supposed to warm up, but chilly this morning.

I have great memories of playing with my cousins. Life is good.

Have a wonderful day.

Phone a friend

Cindy sent me this picture of Anna who was 'calling' me. She has such a sweet smile.

Cindy spent the day painting - I'm sure some grandkid time was in there too!

A super windy and story night - we had a tornado watch until 1 am and it felt like it was about to roll through too!

It's Friday - have a great day.

One month old

Noema is growing and filling out. She is getting her grampa's belly.

Have a wonderful day - it started raining early this morning and is still POURING outside.

Cindy is heading north

Cindy heads north today to help the Adams' get ready for Lincoln. And ... maybe enjoy the grandkids too.

And yes, Noema is in the picture you see, she's just hiding.

Psalm 139:13 (NIV)

For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.

Anna - the early years

Wow, those kids are really growing - where do the days and months go?

I pray your week is going well - here's a quote to ponder:

The Bible is worth all other books which have ever been printed. --Patrick Henry

Hot chocolate and bowl of snow

Yummy way to get going - I'm okay with the hot chocolate, but nor sure about a bowl of snow.

Have a blessed week. Cindy's off to Ohio later this week to help Anna get ready for a little brother to move in.

Cookie monster

It's best to watch cookies that are baking to be able to pull them out of the oven at the exact moment. Of course, eating a snack at the same time helps the time pass well.

We enjoyed the Tech basketball games last night - our friend has front row season passes so the view is always great.

Have a great Sunday - another nice day ahead.

It's warm outside!

50 degrees already - high in upper 50's - feels like a heat wave.

We've got errands, some drawing on a custom home and basketball tonight - a great day ahead.

What are you doing with your day? - enjoy!

I'm glad I'm old

I was just thinking about how glad I am that there was no digital photography when I was young - my folks might have a lot more photos of me as a child - just a thought.

However, I sure love the photos of my babies! Aren't they beautiful.

Anna is a fashion diva

Another fine day ahead - I drove up to Celina to look at a church yesterday - never even heard of Celina before that. One of the guys at work and across the hall is from there and attended the same church as a youth. Everyone knows everyone in Tennessee!

Have a great day - pray this finds you well and doing great.

She's growing up

I'm not sure if it is because Noema is to tiny and young, but Kaireia sure seemed a lot older on my last Ohio visit. She's growing up so quick.

I love that missing tooth smile!

Dreaming of warm weather

Two of my favorite things here - grandkids and warm weather! (And Cindy , of course).

All signs of snow are gone although we still see some ice on the shady side of the highway cuts through the rocky hills.

It's Tuesday - enjoy!

Getting ready for church

Here is Cindy getting two girls ready for church. The one in her lap is a bit more relaxed.

What a beautiful weekend and a great week ahead - I love warm weather! Did I ever mention that?

Great church meeting yesterday - but 4 1/2 hours long!! Can't believe most of the members stayed - not sure I would have - except I was on stage and it would have been awkward to leave.

A beautiful day

We've got sunshine! Another beautiful day ahead - makes us yearn for spring.

I've a 1 pm meeting north of Nashville after church to present a large addition to a church in Madison, Tennessee. Should be fun!

Enjoy your church service today and enjoy the nice weather!

Warmer this week

It appears there will be no snow this week - woohoo! Everybody is sick of this white stuff.

An errand day - a book signing at our public library, lunch in Knoxville and hopefully hang a gas wall heater in the basement. Other than that, just a lazy day. Saturdays are nice :-)

Friday, February 11, 2011

Another Friday is here

A quick week - where did it go?

Warmer weather begins to move in, at least for the next week or so. Anything over 30 seems warm now!

Enjoy your weekend - I'm meeting a church Sunday afternoon for a congregational presentation of a fairly large addition - pray it goes well - thanks!

Baby it's cold outside

This would be a great day to stay home and read - even reading out loud to a friend!

Bitter cold here - we're tired of this weather. Oh well, one more day ...

Rockwood this afternoon and several meetings at work - a busy but good day.

Wednesday, February 09, 2011

Come on out, the coast is clear

First things first - yesterday's photo was Noema, not Anna - wait until they get older and I get a couple more grandkids - wow, I can't keep up with names now!

Snow this afternoon and all night is projected for our area - think summer! Weather in the teens this morning - brrrrr.

Tuesday, February 08, 2011

Baby on board

Yes, Noema is in there - somewhere! The coat should be cushion enough in case of a car wreck - regardless of the car seat.

Snow on the ground but sunshine projected today - starting off in the teens but high 30's to low 40's projected - another heat wave.

Monday, February 07, 2011

Yummy yummy

Another great week ahead - some snow, some sun and lots of work planned - let's go!

Have a wonderful week - and take time to lick the beaters.

Tenn Tech Basketball

Cindy and I went to a Tenn Tech basketball game last night - actually two - the girls team won and then the boys lost. Still a lot of fun and we were pretty close - actually front row seats. We were in the background during the interview and someone from church called that recognized us.

We're celebrities now - want our autographs?

Testing out my new mobile phone blog app- can post when out of town and no computer.


What kid doesn't enjoy being pushed around in a laundry basket or a trash can?!

Never thought I'd say it, but 38 out and rainy - feels warm! Ha!! Snow projected later but not much - hey, bring it on, I drove to Ohio in a blizzard !

Have a wonderful weekend - keep warm, dry and safe!

Kleeman Clan

Here's a fine group for you - I'd read or wrestle on the floor with them - now that's fun!

Cold but clear here - hey, it's Friday already!

Look back over the week - God helped me through one more week and it was a good one.

Anna and her Aunt Rachel

Well, as cold as it is outside, somebody warm to snuggle with would be nice. Anna is a great snuggler.

Below 20 degrees here this morning - isn't it springtime yet?

Wednesday, February 02, 2011

Father and daughter

Good morning - hope you are still doing fine after this past strong storm that pushed through. We're around 20 degrees this morning, but fortunately no snow. It did rain last night, but hopefully no ice on the roads.

I'm off to Columbia, TN today - SW of Nashville and about 90 miles from here - meeting with a huge church for a whole new complex.

Have a blessed day!

Getting close to Noema

Noema's gramps must be comfortable - he kept her sleeping quite a while. He has a cushiony stomach.

Windy today and turning much colder tonight and tomorrow - no place to go today but work and back - be safe my friends.

Saw Purdue was closed today - snow emergency - heavy snows north of us.
