PROJECT 365-week nine

 Week 9.

WATERING DAY FOR MY INDOOR TRANSPLANTS...love seeing what they're up to in their west-facing window.  Another hibiscus bloom, new leaves on my prayer plant and an unexpected gift from my cholea...it passed a seed to my hibiscus and grew and new little cholea
TUESDAY, 2.22.11
WEDNESDAY, 2.23.11
GRABBING MY KNITTING PROJECT AFTER WRITING HUBS A NOTE ABOUT HIS DINNER, I HEAD OUT TO WORK ON MY PRAYER SHAWL WITH SOME OTHER WONDERFUL PRAYER WARRIORS...
THURSDAY, 2.24.11
SOME LEFTOVERS WERE IN ORDER...USING THE JAMBALAYA WITH PORK/SHRIMP/RICE, I ADDED EXTRA SPICES AND CHEES AND IT BECAME ENCHILADAS.


FRIDAY, 2.25.11
BABYGIRL CALLED; HER VOICE WAS TENDER AND A LITTLE HOMESICK.  (WELL, IT DOESN'T TAKE A 2 BY 4 HITTING ME IN THE HEAD TO RESPOND TO MY DAUGHTER'S REQUEST.  
HUBS AND I DROVE THE EXPLORER HER WAY...WE SPENT THE DAY SHOPPING AT A MALL ABOUT 45 MINUTES FROM HER CAMPUS...
WE ATE AND LINGERED AT A RUBY TUESDAY
THERE WAS A NEAT LITTLE LAKE HOUSE (RESTROOMS, PICNIC TABLES) LOOKING OUT OVER THE LAKE FROM THE TWO-STORY DECK...

 WE SAT A TALKED FOR A WHILE THEN WALKED AROUND THE LAKE...
MY HEART FILLED THROUGHOUT THE DAY..I'M SO PROUD OF HER. HOPEFULLY OUR TRIP REKINDLED HER TO MAKE IT THE NEXT FEW WEEKS THEN IT WILL BE  TIME FORE SPRING BREAK!
ON THE WAY HOME WE STOPPED TO LOOK AT A HOUSE THAT WAS FOR SALE ON ONE OF THE LOCAL LAKES....BUT IT WAS A LITTLE TOO DARK TO SEE MUCH, EXCEPT A GORGEOUS SUNSET FROM THEIR DECK.
HOPE YOU'VE HAD A GOOD WEEK 
COME JOIN US AND SHOW US WHAT YOU WERE UP TO....
Blessings,

looks like a fun visit with your daughter. I'm sure she didn't have to twist your arm to get you to go up for a visit

Loved the lake pictures. I love water scenes. Your leftovers look better than my first run meals. It made me hungry.

I miss the days when my mom would come to my emotional rescue - I'm glad you're able to be there for your daughter. And those are great pictures!

Such beautiful photos and happenings: the plants growing and blossoming, surprise too; knitting and praying with friends; and lovely family time. Makes me wish we had visited the son more when he was away in college. Later I found out how difficult it was for him.
