I cannot believe that I managed to get a photo a day.
One day, I missed, but the photo I took was early, early the following morning...so I almost made it. This week was the first week of 10th grade for my daughter, my first week at a new job, my son Aaron flew to Washington DC to visit his brother (no photos of this)
and my husband was out of town.
Here is what it looked like....sort of!
My mom came to help me this week and one of her main objectives to to make sure our family ate healthy food. This was Sunday night's meal, which she and I prepared together and then she and I ate together. Aaron was at work (ate later that night) and Rebecca ditched us to have dinner with her boyfriend. The spinach salad was her suggestion and then she wasn't even here to eat it. She ate it later though. My mom had picked up fresh ocra at the farmer's market in Tulsa before she came and it was such a treat! YUMMY!
The meatloaf? Just good old comfort food, but recipe compliments of Weight Watchers!
Two pictures today!
Rebecca on her first day of 10th grade. She and I were on our way out the door for school. After I dropped her off, I went to report to work at my new job at
Cardiology Interventional Vascular Associates aka CIVA. (see coffee mug on desk)
I settled into my new desk, filled out new hire paperwork, and read the employee handbook.
Sorry...still focused on the job change. This is a photo of my new building as I was driving in for my second day of work.
This is the photo that I took at 5:30 a.m. on Thursday.
Wednesday, when I came home, I was so tired I could barely stand up. I did not take a picture.
I didn't do really anything and I do not remember the day.
Thursday a.m., after a good night's sleep, I woke for my normal time of prayer and when I let my dog out for his morning relief, I saw this!
This is the moon-flower plant I photographed a couple of weeks ago, but it this morning, was having one if it's more glorious show of blooms. I had to take a picture.
I love these flowers!
My husband was back home after being gone for a few days and the first thing he did was mow the lawn. He takes such good care of our yard and I always go outside and admire it and praise him for what a good job he does.
(I have discovered that he never tires of being acknowledged for even the simplest chores!)
This is a photo of the grass in our front yard, as the sun is setting in the west.
The fragrance of grass fresh cut still soothes my soul.
It is football season...official first game tonight!
The game is an "away" game, and it is very away...about an hour and a half.
My husband and I chose to stay home and have a date, but we will be at every other game from here on out. (I will ride the band bus to all the following away games)
This is a sign that we have in our front yard and it is a very popular thing in our area.
These signs are proudly displayed all year, but are forefront during football season.
Our friend, Jayme, turned 16 yesterday!
Here is a picture of Rebecca and Jayme at the start of Jayme's sweet 16 birthday party.
Rebecca and Jayme have an arranged friendship - that worked!
Jayme's mom, Ashley, and myself met right after I moved here and found out our daughter's were the same age during a conversation early in our friendship.
We decided that we were going to be friends, so we also decided that our daughter's would too.
We arranged a friendship date, and took our two (then 12 year old) daughters to lunch and shopping, with the hope that they would become friends!
What a blast!
