{ Tuesday Tidbits }

A few things going on in my neck of the woods.....

Yesterday was an awesome day!
Wanna know why?
I worked outside!
I'd rather be outside working than indoors any old day. The weather was warm - a little too windy - but there were lots of leaves that needed to be mulched and blown and I took advantage of the warmer day and we got a lot accomplished!


The porch cover is coming along.
I haven't taken any fotos, but I will soon.

I came across this little owlie in a box of decorations that I hadn't opened in several years. I've had this owl since I was very young before we were even married. One of his little ear tufts is missing, and I'm pretty sure Jess tore/bit it off when she was little. He's faded and kinda nappy, but he's loved and found a place to perch on our tree.


We got to see all 4 of our grand kiddos perform in The Christmas Carol this past Saturday night. Y'all, I can't even describe the joy and pride for these precious little souls. 
Be still my  


Not a very clear foto, but look who's started sleeping in one of the chairs under the carport.....


I'm pretty much finished decorating for Christmas, except for the lights we bought on sale last year that I wanted to put around our porch - we'll see if that happens since I'm old and tired.....

Today is the 24th anniversary of going to heaven of one of the most important and loved people in my life.....
my Daddy.

April 13, 1928 - December 4, 1994

(Daddy and me - 1955)


And, that's that about that as my Mammie used to say!

HOPE everybody has a Terrific Tuesday!


  1. Precious picture of you and your dad.
    I'd rather be outside too.

  2. And who is that sleeping in the chair under your carport? Great photos of your daddy! I know your heart is full of wonderful memories! I love that little owl tucked into your tree! Love!

  3. Love your series of photos. It is so nice your got to see the little ones in a Christmas program. It always makes the season special. I started decorating early this year but still haven't brought the main decorations from my storage. I won't be using all of them since they were meant for the tree I gave away. I've already decorated my new and smaller tree and I needed smaller bulbs and a star to top it off. The other things to be decorated are just the mantletop and the top of my bookshelves. I like lights :-) Happy rest of your week. I hope the nicer weather continues so you can get outside more.
