|Gives me all the good feels!!|
Happy Happy Peak Of The Week!! I hope it is as beautiful a day where you are as it is in my neck of the woods!!
Two times tomorrow it will be 9/19/19 9:19.19. Just a random thought!!
I’m home from 2 weeks in Texas. I had such a great time. I saw my family and had so much fun with my mother and sister!! I also saw many of my wonderful friends!! It certainly fed my soul!! Now, Scout and I are back to our routine!!
I’m sharing pictures from my time in Texas along with all things piquing my interest right now!!
I was able to run with a friend who stood (really ran) by my side after losing my husband. She trained with me and ran the New Orleans Marathon with me. I was so sick the day of the race, and I didn’t know if I would be able to finish. She had already looked for another marathon for us to run so I could accomplish my dream. Luckily I was able to finish all 26.2 miles. I’ll never have to do it again!! 🙂 As I was running way behind her I was thinking, –I’ve never missed seeing someone’s backside the way I miss seeing this backside!!!
|She was far ahead of me, but I was just happy to get to run with her again!!|
The Coming Death of Just About Every Rock Legend– It really is sad to see so many of the great rockers of my youth dying!!! What will we do when those like Steven Tyler, Paul McCartney or Mick Jagger are gone. I can’t imagine it!!!
I came home to find an order from Grove. This is another subscription service that I can customize however I want. All products they sell are good for you, your home, and the planet. If you use my code below, you will get a 5 piece gift set with your first order.
Design Mom– I love following Design Mom. I started following her years ago when they lived in France. She also featured me on her blog several years ago. (Here) She has now moved back to France and is doing a series of article on the move, living abroad and all things French!! I love reading about their life there!!
Things in Texas that I miss:
|I never thought I’d miss cows, but I do.|
There were several pregnant cows in the pasture while I was there. I was hoping to get to see some baby calves, but I missed them. My son sent me this video of a baby right after it was born!! So sweet.
Things in my life right now:
I’m loving these pillows from Amazon!!

What I’m reading: Hillbilly Elegy I’ve had this on my Kindle for a long time. It was a top book recommended by Bill Gates and President Obama last year. I started reading it again, and I’m finding it fascinating. It can be found Here.
What room I’m concentrating on for organizing and cleaning: Office
Dr. T is building bookcases for me. We have books all over the house. I’m so ready for this project to be finished so I can get this office organized and styled!! I’m very excited about it. Here is our current situation:
|Our couch has become my bookcase!! Hopefully, it will be finished next weekend!!|
Podcast I’m obsessing over: S-Town Oh My Goodness!! This is a good one. I binged it while driving the two days it took me to drive home from Texas. I’m still not finished, and I have to listen to find out what happens.
