ImprompTu Roadtrip..........


You know what they say about all work and no play.... Well this roadtrip felt more like work than play but at least it wasn't working on the house... From the pics can you guess where we went???

 If you guess Texas ... your RIGHT!  The roadside was full of flowers... maybe not at their peak but still beautiful...

 I can just imagine the looks i was getting from passing cars as i stopped to get this photo for my 'Tea People' over there at Elizabeth's and Bleubeard's... Those are Primrose flowers......



Here we stopped at a roadside park. All these photos were taken with my phone so i apologize for their quality... As you can see above it focused on the background and not the flower i wanted to show you...grrrr.... That is a TX Mountain Laurel by the way and no kidding they smell just like grape Koolaid... :)

Our trip ... quick as it was... 3 days ...one to drive down , one there, and one to drive back... 10+ hours each way...uuughhh... Was successful.... Hubby got it in his head a little while ago that i needed to have my little blue car back...Its a blue Ford Focus ..oh about a 2002 or so... good little car...dependable , never gave us any problems but we decided not to take it CA with us when we moved there 4 years ago so we left it to my MIL to use...She has since passed and it just sits in a barn so..... We'll see.. it needs some TLC and we'll either keep it or sell it... We also managed to get together with a few friends and family . So all in all good trip.



I wish i could say the bedroom is a done deal.... BUT its done enough that we could more some furniture back in and put the fan back in...etc... Still working on some trim... Who knew trim took so long... cutting it, painting it...caulking it..painting over the caulk...uuughh... But the bedroom is close and computer room/office is close, then we paint the guest room... 

Hubs is making some beautiful window sills... larger than the originals so Jinx can comfortable fit his butt on there and i can put a few things on the window sills like i like to do...Yes Jinx and i will have a discussion about that and i'm sure he will see my point of view that he better not knock anything off and if he just won't listen to reason there's always Earthquake putty...lol Happy T day my friends! Hugs! deb
