Friday ... finally ...

Greetings - a LONG day ahead. Two bids really to roll out - missing one number each. And a third HUGE bid due at approx. 5 pm - hopefully not 7:30 like last Friday!

Rachel and kids coming in tonight so possibly no blogs for a week - will have lots of new photos to make up for it in a week though.

It may be casual Friday for some but I've learned you always dress for success and for my job, jeans ain't successful! Enjoy!!

Good day for a dip

Kaireia and Kardia
A hot one coming up today - not quite Texas weather, but hot for the folks around here. We're still opening up the windows at night though as the evenings are nice and cool.

Gotta wrap up two huge bids today as I've my biggest third one due tomorrow. Also, have a business lunch today and I'm one of the main speakers. At least that is prepared! Hang on, the days are flying by.

Wild and Wacky Wednesday

Good morning - a nice cool morning here, around 60 degrees. We sat on the patio last night, but as the sun went down it felt downright chilly. Well, the heat is about to turn around so we're told not much of that cooler weather for awhile.
I hope you are all doing great - our church has a mission group returning from Thailand today - they should have some great stories.
No more news - have a safe and blessed day!

Hot and dry Tuesday ahead

Noema, Neidon and Kaireia
We went to the concert in the park last night and had a great time. They had a guest clarinetist who was great - Wonkak Kim, who is also a new professor at the college.

Saw lots of members from our church at the cooncert and other locals I recognized too - I'm still getting used to this small town where all know all.

Arggg ... Monday already ...

Lincoln in Lincoln
Well, we're off. My to-do list is so long this week it's beyond belief. The good thing is that after a super hard week, Rachel and the kids will come in this Friday for a week - woohoo!

I did have a great weekend - God is good! Have a great week - love you all.

Sunday, June 24, 2012

Church today - I hope you're going!

Psalm 119:103 How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!

We had a nice relaxing Saturday - I might have even dozed off in the recliner for a bit. Warm days, cool nights and very dry - that's our forecast for the next few days.

Gotta go - church in a bit - love you!

Yay for weekends

A long hard week - we wrapped up our quote last night after 7 pm - thought I'd never go home. Next week we have another Friday bid and it's on a larger project - oh well, tomorrow is another day.

Breakfast in a bit and a few errands - I want a no thinking weekend - love you all!

Friday, June 22, 2012

Finally Friday ...

A huge bid due this afternoon - I'm ready to get it over with - this is a biggie and a lot of work left. This day will fly by!!

We had a small bit of rain last night -not much, but still welcome. Another hot one projected - summer has really started!

Psalms 55:22 Cast your burden on the Lord and He will sustain you; He will never allow the righteous to be moved.

Thursday ... rain??

Greetings - sorry no post yesterday - had to go early to Rockwood about an hour from here. The good thing - I was back by 9:30.

Two crazy days ahead - a huge bid due tomorrow again for Wacker Polysilicates. The days just fly by.

Some of my favorite verses from Psalm 116:1-2 "I love the Lord, because he hears me; he listens to my prayers. He listens to me every time I call to him."

Tiptoeing into Tuesday

Another warm day ahead - be careful out there.

We went to the Dogwood Park outdoor concert last night and enjoyed a variety of band music. A pleasant evening especially after the sun went down. It was nice and relaxing.

Another good day ahead - if you are a hat person, wear it!

Marvelous Monday

Anna, Lincoln and Cindy
Okay, it might not be marvelous, but it is still a good day which just happens to be Monday.

I've another major bid due at the end of the week and who knows what else pops in the middle of the week. Serendipity baby!

Have a blessed week - God is good.

Happy Father's Day

Mom and Dad with great-grand kids
Happy Father's Day Dad! I'm thankful for Godly parents (and grand parents) who have passed on a legacy of faithfulness. God is Good!

Lazy Saturday

Another weekend - woohoo!! Breakfast and then maybe go to a state park, some errands and a nice relaxing Saturday.

We've hired maybe 12 or 14 folks now for these new Ft. Campbell projects and the office is packed - they leave in another week or so for the military base as the projects break ground and we get back to normal in the office.

I could easily enjoy some grand baby time. Looking forward to seeing Rach's gang in a few weeks. How did I get such great grand kids?

Happy Birthday Sandra!!

Kardia, Uncle Jack and Kaireia
Good morning - and Happy Birthday to Sandra! I pray it's a great birthday for you.

No news here - slight chance of rain but otherwise hot and a bit humid. My neighbor mowed the lawn last night but mine looks to dry for that. Mostly paperwork today and will try to get home a bit early - it's Friday!!

Thursday, June 14, 2012

Thankful for Thursday

Another week is flying by - I've lots of stuff to do today - don't want it to go too fast!

We're still needing rain - what we've got has been pretty minimal so far. I know many of you are dry as well - pray for rain. At least our mowing has slowed down to every 10 days to 2 weeks or so - we have our life back!

Remember the new grand-babies and momma's in your prayers - pray for health and safety.

Jeremiah 1:15 "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you ..."

Sisters ...

Kardia and Kaireia
Another fine morning - our cooler evenings are still here, although a bit humid. A nice summer.

Rachel and the kids are coming in a week or two to spend some time with us - looking forward to spoiling some kids.

Well, off to another day - working on the next big bid due next week. At least I'm busy! God is good, all the time!

Birthday this week ...

Janice, Sandra and Cindy
Someone is having a birthday on the 15th. Let's see ... she's one of my sisters, she lives in Tennessee, she tends to be in the middle of everything, she wears glasses, hmmm. who could it be?

Another great day ahead - hang in there, the day will fly by - trust me!

...monday ......

Neidon and Anna
Good morning - rain and a bit cooler high - high's mid 80's today - pleasant weather - we need the rain.

I saw it is hot with heat warnings in Texas - be careful there!

Better go - need to be in office by 7 for a bid that is due at 10 am - at least we can email it in to the client.

Sunday, June 10, 2012

Church today

Hurry up with breakfast - church is in a few minutes - you don't want to be late.

Hebrews 10:25 `Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another--and all the more as you see the Day approaching.'

Super Saturday

We're off - a new day. Cindy is off to Crossville to hear a Christian lady speaker and I'm catching up with Sunday School lessons, etc. - a quiet day.

Still having cool nights and not so hot days and today will be no different. Lows last night in the 50's and around 80 for today's high. It's been a great summer - albeit a bit dry.

Let this little girl's smile get your day going! Enjoy!!

Sliding into Friday

Anna and Cindy
     Another fast week - we have a bid due Monday morning so all of the sub bids are to come in today. At least that's the plan.

     We mowed the lawn last night - still dry, but it was so tall it really needed it. We still need rain desperately - a week without rain here is probably like a month or more without rain in south Texas. Our grass just can't take it.

 Better run - have a great day!!

Stop growing!

The grand kids are sure growing up - every time I see them they seem to be acting older and doing more things they couldn't before. I guess it's time for a couple of new babies!

Woohoo - paperwork today - let's try to catch up on some stuff. I decided not to go to Charleston, TN so I could play catch up - it's Thursday already - arggg!!

Cooler days and evenings here - almost spring like again - nice! Thank you for blessing us each day God! But could you have maybe helped the Spurs a tad more?

Mid-week crazies

Greetings - had a great trip yesterday to Charleston, TN and back (the Wacker site). I counted 22 cranes yesterday - construction everywhere - amazing! We have 4 contracts in 2 buildings - just a small piece of the puzzle.

Paperwork this morning, Monterey and Crossville this afternoon - this day will fly!

Monday, June 04, 2012

Yawn ...

Good morning, he says sipping more coffee ... it looks like a fine day.

Cindy is home safe and sound. A busy week ahead for all - hang on!

No post tomorrow - I've got to be on the road by 5:30 and heading south to a project site.

Have a great week - we're off!

Swinging in Illinois

Grandma Harvey swinging our grand-babies. They enjoyed it!

Weather-wise it's been a great weekend. Cool yet sunny - it doesn't get any better than this.

What happened to those Spurs? We're now 2-2 in the series - let's pick it up guys. Next game tomorrow night.

Now to something that really matters - church in a few minutes! I hope you are going - don't get lazy on my now.

Have a great day - I think Cindy returns too - better clean up the place!

Missing 2 front teeth

Missing teeth
Good morning - starting off at 50 degrees here in Cookeville. We never broke 60 yesterday - brrrr.

Thanks for the birthday calls, notes, etc - I got home late yesterday and had a nice call on the answering machine from Irene - thanks! Thanks to my folks for the call later too - I must have been upstairs in the office where I can't hear the home phone - thanks too!

Gracious - where have the years gone. What a good life God has given me - and such good family and friends. God is good.

Well, lots of  'to do' stuff today. You all have a great Saturday - love you!

Friday, June 01, 2012

Happy Birthday Irene

Happy Birthday Irene - pray it's a grand one! Tell Amos to take you out someplace nice!

Here is what Cindy is doing right now - chasing grand-kids! Sounds terrible, huh?

It's Friday - have a grand old day.
