He is Risen!

A great Easter morning to you. Rainy and overcast here, but fairly warm - mid 50's - what a great day for Easter.

Lunch after church with some church friends and home again. I hope you have a great Easter too.

Saturday, March 30, 2013


Sunshine - good and bad - the good, we're ready for warm weather; the bad - it looks like the yard needs mowing ...
Breakfast, a few errands and then maybe the yard will be dry enough to mow. I hope your day is as thrilling as mine!

Easter tomorrow! He is risen indeed! Have a wonderful weekend - love you all!

PS Hope your birthday was great yesterday Mom! I tried to call last night but it just kept ringing. She probably had the president on the other line!

The work week is gone ...

Another week bites the dust - lots of paperwork today, but no traveling. Had a good meeting with a church in Celina last night but pretty typical - great dreams and no money. Sounds like my life!

Cindy is home safe and sound. Today she has to figure how to hide or blend in all of the stuff she brought back. Looks like a lawn mowing weekend too - can't believe we're there already.

Have a wonderful Friday!

Momma's coming home!

Cindy comes home today from Indiana  - pray for safety - and that she doesn't bring a lot of stuff back! She had a great visit with her folks and brothers - glad she had the chance to go. It will feel like warm weather here to her - around 50 today.

Asher doesn't seem to be enjoying the reading in this photo. Give him time ...

No driving today

A class downtown today (you use that term loosely in Cookeville) and then in the office all day with paperwork - lots of catch up to do.

Cindy seems to be doing well and should come back tomorrow from Indiana. Today is mostly family visiting for her parents and the kids.

Warm weather come on back!

It's still snowing

We're not accumulating much like up north, but it's snowed for over 24 hours straight. It's pretty strange to see trees budded out and many even flowering with snow all over them. They're probably not appreciating it much either.

Mostly inside today, but a 4 pm meeting over in Crossville and then back home again.

You all be good and have a great day!

Monday, March 25, 2013

I'm not really ready for another work week.

 Well, the trees are all budding out here - my allergies are killing me already. You can see some Bradford pear trees in this photo blooming out.

Whereas, a few miles north of me in Indiana .... a blizzard is in progress.

We've got a chance for snow too the next few days ... welcome to the north.

Sunday, March 24, 2013


A long evening last night - we had a 24 prayer vigil and I was on the main team and had to oversee the 8:30pm to 11:30pm slots - yawn! Maybe a nap today ...

Cindy made it safe to Indiana - just in time before the big blizzard due today. Cold here too - just not quite as cold. Have I said I'm ready for spring yet?

Saturday, March 23, 2013

Off to Indiana

Cindy's on the road - pray her trip and visit go well. Her brothers are going to her folks house as well - look out for SNOW!

Need to clean up the office and sort through tons of emails and paperwork today - it piles us quickly!

Have a great day - raining and cold here - brrrr.

Friday, March 22, 2013

Friday Friday Friday ... Did I say it was Friday?

I'm exhausted - a hard, but good week. Lots to do today but at least I'm in the office all day. Okay, let's start by finding that desk top again .... now where did I put it ...

Thursday, March 21, 2013

Finish breakfast and get to work

Good morning - Cindy's home for a few days & then off to Indiana. Good having her home for a spell.
It was snowing late yesterday afternoon for awhile but no accumulation. More projected tonight & tomorrow night but light.
Paperwork this morning, business luncheon and then Crossville this afternoon. Love you!

Cindy driving back today

Sounds like my dad's cataract surgery went well Tuesday. Mom can't be sneaky around him any more - he can see her!

Cindy returns today for a few days and then back to Indiana. If she flew she'd be racking up mileage points.

Tuesday, March 19, 2013

It finally rained

Had a meeting in Nashville yesterday afternoon and it poured all the way over pretty hard - a bit cooler for a few days, but the rain was great.

Lots of paperwork catch up to do today. I'm looking forward to catching up on some things.

Cindy is enjoying the grand-kids but it is sure quiet here.

I pray your week has started off well.

Monday, March 18, 2013

Hi Grandma!

Somebody was sitting up waiting on Grandma to arrive!

Other than the rain to sleet to snow storm between Louisville and Cincinnati, Cindy made it to Columbus safe and sound.

Have a great week - we're off and running!

Sunday, March 17, 2013

Where's the rain?

Cindy takes off to Ohio after church and I have to be back at church by 1:30 for a meeting. Lots going on this morning.

We were to have gotten rain yesterday but it hasn't rolled in yet - is it stalled over you?

A new week is here - love you all!

Saturday, March 16, 2013

Off to Ohio

Good morning - rain projected this weekend - we hope so as we reseeded the lawn yesterday.

Cindy heads up to Ohio tomorrow for the week to help Audrey as she hurt her back and Audrey and Reed and the kids head to the West coast soon so she needs some grand-kid help - Cindy had to think about it 10 whole seconds - not!

It's Saturday - enjoy!

Friday, March 15, 2013

It's Friday - Smile!!

Good morning on this fine Friday. Another week has flown by - paperwork this morning and a meeting with a residential client this afternoon. It's been a great week and I've gotten a lot done - I'm ready for a warm weekend - okay, at least warm-er.

Rhiza is sure growing up - she needs some grandparent loving. I love my babies.

Have a blessed weekend.

Thankful for Thursday

I really don't wish the week away, but goodness - where did this week go anyway! It is already Thursday.

Temperature is in the teens out but supposedly we're to get a high of 48 today - they've missed the past few days - we'll see. Our sunny 70 degree Saturday now says mid 60's and rain - come on spring!!

I like this photo - the holding hands thing is not always welcome. I think he wants loose and she seems to be saying 'I'm trying to pose for you"! Funny!

Wednesday, March 13, 2013

Half way already ...

It's Wednesday and I've had a great week already. Lots of good stuff going on. God continues to bless me with work - He is so good.

I've got a home design starting and it's been fun as the kids are home-schooled and they join us around the table when we discuss the house. I love the discussion amongst the family as we progress - Christians are great to work with.

I'm off - may your day be blessed!

Missing bottom tooth

A wild weather day yesterday - Sunday midnight was the warmest and the temperatures dropped all day long yesterday. Hard rain all morning and cooler all afternoon - so, is it spring or what?

Off to Sparta this morning for a residential client and back in the office all afternoon - need to wrap up a few prices today.

Don't wish the week away - enjoy today and be blessed!

Psalm 118:24 This is the day that the Lord has made;
    let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Back to work

It was a dark and stormy morning ... hey, it really is! Mid-50's out, not bad, but it sure stormed all night. More rain today as I head to Nashville for a meeting and back later this afternoon.

We're off and running - have a great week!

Sunday, March 10, 2013

Time change ... yawn

Did you remember the time change? It sure feels early right now.
Off to church in a few minutes, a great day ahead. What's God got for us today? Listen good.

Love you all!

I love my grandkids

Good Saturday morning!
A guy who offices next to move recently found out he was going to be a grandpa and his daughter is carrying twins. As we were talking I was reminded once more how much I love my kids and grand-kids and what a blessing they were to me. God reminds us of His own love for us through our love for others and we realize that love can multiply and grow unselfishly. We love them as they are with all of their different personalities.
God is so good!!

Sunny outside

There is a big yellow thing in the sky outside this morning - not sure what it is as we haven't seen it for quite awhile. Yesterday it never got much above freezing so maybe warmer today.

A hard but good week - hard to believe another one has gone by already. I pray your week has gone well.

Have a great weekend and rest up.

Galatians 6:9 Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. (NIV)

Warmer weather is returning!

Good morning - warmer weather ahead - we're in the high 40's today - having a heat wave ...

The grand-kids are having fun drawing on paper from Great Grandma and Grandpa Adams. I think they'll have the whole sheet filled in with that gang!

I've also got paperwork this morning, lunch with 45 business owners and executives and then more paperwork - I'm getting in a rut! Or maybe just steadfast??

Isaiah 26:3-4
You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you. Trust in the LORD forever, for the LORD, the LORD, is the Rock eternal.

It snowed all night ...

Waking up to cold and snow this morning - a cold day ahead but hopefully we'll pull out of this soon.

I've a class all morning and catch-up all afternoon. Lots of good stuff still going on.

Church tonight too - wow, are we already half-way into the week? Just don't wish the weeks away! Have a good one.

Tuesday, March 05, 2013

Rainy Tuesday

Salutations - rainy today turning into snow late - just what we need.

Off to Smithville this morning, back for local meetings and paperwork - God is good!

Here's a precious load - I'd spoil these babies!

Have a wonderful day.

Monday, March 04, 2013

Yawn ... it's Monday ...

Wow, a great weekend, but it flew by. It stopped snowing Sunday morning and melted off for the most part that same day. Back in the 50's this week except for like Wednesday when we have a chance of snow and freezing rain again.

No bid plans this week - I actually have a few nights at home - I love client day meetings!

Gotta go - love you all - maybe today!!

Sunday, March 03, 2013

What, still snowing??

Good morning - still snowing and it's finally started to accumulate - let's see how it is going to church today - supposed to stop by noon.

Asher was evidently laughing before this photo - they never smile when you want them to!

Have a great Lord's day - may church bless you richly!

Saturday, March 02, 2013

Snow and more snow

I think it snowed all night long - fortunately it's pretty fine and light so minimal accumulation. Off to the annual home show and we bought some tickets for breakfast there as well - should be fun.

The last basketball games of the season are tonight before play-offs - we've had a fun year going but are ready for a break. (and how about those Spurs!!?)

Gotta go - have a great day - stay warm and safe. It would be more fun if I had a grand-baby to spoil! (Just wait Sandra!)

Friday, March 01, 2013

More snow ...

Yes, it's snowing outside and about 36 hours of it is projected. If you have to drive, be careful.

Mostly paperwork today - one bid to wrap up this morning - a quote to complete this morning and mostly just catching up - my desk is a WRECK!

Enjoy - it's Friday!
