Company a-comin'

Thanksgiving 2012
Greetings - this is my last post this week - we've got company coming and I think Kaireia will take over my office this week. I pray you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving - we all have so much to be thankful for! Did you know that if you make over $20,000 you are in the top 5% of the world in regards to income - we are rich! And we have been poured out with God's grace abundantly - we are rich indeed!

Proverbs 10:7 (NIV)  The name of the righteous is used in blessings,

18 degrees outside!!

If it weren't for church I'd rethink going out this morning. It's downright cold this morning and a high just in the 30's. Probably 80% of the trees have lost their leaves and it looks like yucky Winter. Waaaa - I want my Texas!
Okay, we can do this - get out there and spread blessings - have a great Sunday!

Thanksgiving around the corner

Good morning from Cookeville-  39 degrees out - higher than tomorrow's projected high temperature - brrrr!

I came back through several super foggy spots yesterday from Georgia - a long trip back ...

Breakfast out and a few errands today and TTU basketball tonight - a good day.
You all be safe and have a blessed day!

Road trip Friday

Greetings - off to Georgia later this morning to pick carpet and back again. A 2 hr 20 min trip each way - so probably driving most of my day   :-)

So - having a good week? Are you getting thankful as we get closer to Thanksgiving? Be blessed my friends.

Thankful for Thursdays

Salutations - I've been seeing a lot of folks in November writing a daily item on Facebook that they are thankful for - sure nicer than some of the stuff people post! So, what are you thankful for as we approach Thanksgiving?

Have a blessed Thursday!

1 Corinthians 1:4-5 (NIV)

I always thank my God for you because of his grace given you in Christ Jesus. For in him you have been enriched in every way—with all kinds of speech and with all knowledge—

Wednesday - wonderful, wacky or weird ...

Greetings on another chilly morning! A great day ahead - got to squeeze a quick trip to Murfreesboro and McMinnville in today - otherwise a paperwork day.

Rachel's gang is rolling in next week - excited for that - Cindy has been getting ready - shopping, cooking and cleaning - the big three.

Well, I'm off - have a blessed day!

PS Our church has it's annual Thanksgiving banquet tonight - woohoo! Great food and even greater fellowship!

I'm back

Greetings - I had a great trip yesterday to Bowling Green and back - left at 6 am and got back around 6:20 pm - a long but great day.

Just want to get everything wrapped up this week for Thanksgiving next week - the only problem, we have a HUGE bid due the 26th - oh well ...

I need to pull an iron or two out of the fire - but hey, it's better than not having any work!

Have a blessed day.

A brand new week

Greetings from Cookeville - a bit overcast today with a huge chance of rain so hang on!
Looks like a great week ahead.
Church today and the usual stuff - tomorrow off super early to Bowling Green. KY and then back here most of the week.
I pray your Saturday went well - it was a windy day and looked stormy all day but it just teased us. It was still a great day off though. Have a blessed week!

The weekend :-)

Greetings - another day lies before us - we enjoyed a play at the high school last night - "To Kill A Mockingbird" - they did mighty good!

A few errands today and just enjoying a warm weather day that's come back for a spell. It's 48 out today supposed to hit high 50's - hey, summer's back!

You all have a blessed day - isn't God good!

Friday, November 15, 2013

I thought this Friday would never get here

Wow - a long hard week - thank you Lord for being gracious and getting us to Friday! This has been a week full of bids, client meetings, phone conferences and just plain old busy-work. It's time to charge up this old battery and start over.
I hope God has blessed your socks off this week - sometimes you gotta talk to Him for Him to talk back - and then you gotta listen - just saying. Have a great day.

Yawn .... better get going

Good morning - it's sure hard to get out from under the coverings when it is so cold - brrrr.
Another intense week but it's almost over - hang in there, we're close!

Psalm 95:2 (NIV)

Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song.

14 degrees!

Greetings - it got a bit cold last night but they are calling for low 40's later this afternoon - what happened to me that I think 40 is warm! My San Antonio blood is changing ...

A busy day ahead and church tonight. Hang in there, we'll get through this.Photos of my grandkids sure help!

Photo - 2 years ago

Greetings - can you tell the kids haven't given me photos for awhile? I've been sifting through old photos I didn't use before - those kids are still cute! (But new photos would be nice - hint, hint)

It is COLD outside and it won't get a lot warmer today - it's snowing in Nashville - will we get some??

Okay, fall has left us - maybe not officially but weather-wise it's history!

Love you all - have a blessed day!

Monday, November 11, 2013

And we're off ....

Another week lays before us - sorry I didn't post yesterday - just got tied up - why are Sundays always so busy?
We've a cold front coming through Tuesday - high Wednesday and Thursday in the 40's - brrrr! A slight chance of snow as well.
Well, hold on, we're off .....

Saturday, November 09, 2013

28 degrees!

Salutations - evidently a cold front is moving though this coming week - I thought this was cold!
About to head out for breakfast and errands and a final (?) mowing today. Saturdays are nice - hey, Tech basketball starts tonight too! Let the fun begin. Have a great weekend.

No more casual Fridays

Good morning - well, it's official, no more casual Fridays at our office. We've got a few folks who decided about 4 years ago to start wearing jeans on Friday and now probably 80% or more do on Friday and about half do so the rest of the week. No more - management took over and casual is out - if you saw how it has degraded you'd agree. For myself, I've never worn jeans or casual to work so no problem. I think it's a matter of respect.
I was going to bring church dress into it but that would open a real can of worms. All I know is, I'm glad God knows my heart!
Have a blessed Friday!

Photo - 2 years ago - Dec 2011

Good morning - another fine day here in the Upper Cumberlands. We had some rain last night so it's cooled down a bit with high's in the mid 50's today but our rain should be gone for now.
Meetings and paperwork as usual today - kind of a deja vu day.
So you having a good week? Our church is already making plans for Thanksgiving and even Christmas events - wow - I bet the rest of this year is gonna fly by - hang on tight!

Wednesday, November 06, 2013

Arrggggably a long day ahead.

Good morning mateys - today is my easiest day this week - I'm already sorry I said that. No client meetings and no deadlines today - tomorrow and Friday - that all changes ...

Earlier this week they said about 70 today - now the high is projected closer to 67 or 68 with lots of rain tonight. I'm coming back as a weather man ...

Hope you are all doing great - God continues to bless us - hang in there, we're halfway thru this ole week.

November ..

November ... just saying it is kind of like telling folks I'm 59 ... how in the world did we get here already! This year has just flown by.

This picture was taken yesterday and Rach sent it to us ... at least a couple of folks don't mind Mondays!

Well, another busy week - do you feel like you could get more done if clients didn't keep wanting to meet? If those pesky clients could stay away I'd be all caught up!

Well, work calls (although it sounds kind of muffled) - you all have a great day!

Monday, November 04, 2013

Did you remember the time change on Sunday?

Good morning,
This time change was the 'good' way - yet it still hasn't felt right yet. I'm getting too old to switch my sleeping patterns - maybe I'll take a nap after lunch - just lay down behind my desk, no one will notice.

The temperature is in the low to mid 60's all week, except Wednesday when we're to hit 70 degrees - we're hitting freezing about every night now - the plants and trees are sure showing it.

Well, I'm off, have a blessed week! (And for those of you sick - get well!)

Christmas 2011 photo

Good morning - a bit foggy out there, but otherwise downright cold! Only 30 degrees to start this morning - a lot of wind and rain yesterday and a lot more leaves coming down.
Cindy made it home safe and sound - pray for Audrey as she has a couple of weeks and the stint comes back out.
It's Sunday - enjoy worship today!

Saturday, November 02, 2013

Leaves are falling ...

We've lost a lot of leaves this past week - looking more like winter than fall ... just hope warm weather isn't completely gone yet.
Cindy is headed home - a pretty day to drive. I'm getting some paperwork out of the way - have a great weekend!

FFFFFFriday ...

Salutations ... an overcast Friday - our storm radio went off all night with tornado watches - I'm still here so evidently nothing happened except a lack of sleep ...

A super windy and rainy day yesterday - not a good day to drive to a pre-construction meeting over 2 hours away and back again - it sure helped me sleep hard though (except during tornado watch warnings).

Mostly paperwork today - Cindy is still in Ohio and probably back tomorrow - pray Audrey heals well.

No other news - just another great, long, tiring, exciting, mundane, weary week.

Love you all - enjoy!
