Happy Peak of the Week!! Here are some things that piqued my interest this week!! 

While out walking/ running (someday I hope to be able to just put "running" on a post, but I'm not sure if that day will ever come here!!) I saw this going on in my neighborhood. I can't imagine being up that high on the side of a water tower!! I couldn't do it, but I'm so glad there are men who are will to!!





Marie Osmond Sunday Message-  Marie writes about reading pages in the journal that her mother kept for years. What a treasure to leave to our children and grandchildren.

I'm a big believer in journaling. I kept a journal most of my life. One of my new year's goals was to keep a Twitter journal-- which I am happy to say, I've kept up with!! Just a brief note of what I did that day. I hope to have at least 5 years worth in one journal!!

My mother's mother was a writer! She wrote poetry and loved words. Maybe that is where I get my love of words!! I have a copy of some of her writing. It is one of my greatest treasures!!

Amazon Alexa-- This link shows all the things you can ask or tell Alexa!!!

M gave Dr. T an Amazon Echo product for Christmas. We have enjoyed that gift so much. The video below shows how I use it the most. I realized that I can stream KLOVE radio station on it so I do that a lot during the day. I also add items to my grocery list!! So great!!



Amazon Echo for Senior Citizens
People my age have aging parents if we are blessed enough for our parents to still be alive. I thought this was a great product for seniors. My mom recently bought a Google Home which she uses for a grocery list and to listen to music. I'm sure you could do the same thing with any of the home systems that are out there!!


On a very serious note. I'm so relieved that the Austin Bomber was found!! Both of my nephews live in Austin!! I can't imagine that city being so on edge throughout all of this!! So thankful for all the law enforcement who worked so hard to find him.

I found out that a friend from here was traveling to San Antonio and Austin this week. I told her that I would write down some of my favorite things and give it to her.  I sat down Sunday morning before church and started a Google Doc of my favorite things in San Antonio and Austin. I ended with three pages!!!  Ha ha- I love my home state of Texas so much. I never realized how much I love San Antonio until I started making my list!! I want her to love her visit there. And, of course, I know she will. It's TEXAS after all!!!



This time of year is so special in South Texas. The wildflowers are blooming. This picture is from a few weeks ago when I was in San Antonio. Bluebonnets starting to bloom on the side of the road!! I love seeing everyone's wildflower pictures this time of year!! Be sure to share yours with me!!!
