Plant tators of course! Pete has long stood behind the tradition of planting potatoes on Valentine's Day. He and a neighbor are helping one another disc, cut up, and plant their crops. Pete is still having good and bad days. Still limited in what he can do. Some days he still can't do a thing. But bless his heart he's trying. Still waiting for answers about assistance getting checked out.
Bug is growing like a weed!! Gonna have to take her on a shopping trip real soon. She's bringing home straight A report cards and excellent conduct marks. Gets a little sassy around the house sometimes though. But we're working on that.
She and I went over to my sister's last Friday night while her hubby was out of town with his horse. We spent the night. Girls night. Had frito pie. And Edna's wonderful peach pie for desert. We played with balloons. We played school. Bug and Edna took turns being the teacher. I chose to play class clown. ;o) On the spelling test Bug gave, one word was cell phone. So I drew a picture of a phone behind bars. LOL Aren't I clever? Teacher Bug didn't find it so funny. I was sent to detention. :o(
Bubba is a real, bon-a-fied working man now! He's in the maintenance department at a local refinery. It's really a great first full time job for him. He's so handsome. Usually good to his mama. I'm proud of him and appreciate him so very much.
As for me, I'm still plugging along at my part-time job. It's a good place with good people. I enjoy my drive time. Listen to Motown/Oldies or use the time for intercessory prayer. I'm so far behind in housework, it is ridiculous! But I have a week off scheduled next month to tackle some spring cleaning.
I was surprised and delighted this past week by an email from Clay Robison, Austin Bureau Chief of the Houston Chronicle inviting little ole nobody me to send in three questions for the presidential candidates when they come stumping to Texas soon!! You can bet if any of my questions get printed in the newspaper I'll be posting so you can all go and read.
I want to take this opportunity to wish all of you a love and surprise filled Valentine's Day. I'll be making some old fashioned home made fudge later as my gift to the family. Drop by and have some with us. The coffee will be on!
