I know I was off my blogging game yesterday. Feel free to call me a slacker . . . you’ll see why in a few sentences. This week actually went fast and smooth (except for one thing) just as I had hoped it would. Our vacation officially begins today at 3pm today when I pick up my man at work and we head on out for our road trip . . . EXCITED!
This past weekend we went down to Louisville to spend time with Scott’s grandmother and great aunt. It was so nice spending time with them and eating some of their good cooking! Jeese taught me how to make the BEST hamburgers! I might even share the recipe with you all. While we were there we took a little drive over to the town where they grew up and where Scott’s grandfather is buried. We walked the cemetery and saw all of their family. My mother in law and I even took a little joy walk (huh?) and saw some old very interesting graves. AND we visited the restaurant up there . . . it was interesting.
This one got me through Thursday.
America’s got talent started up this Monday, and my nephew was not on yet . . . but keep watching! This is him and his handsome older brother a few years ago. He always knew he’d be world famous 🙂
Those two up there have a little brother AJ who is the sweetest kid I know. He loves animals and is so funny. I really think he got more of the Butcher weirdness. His birthday is tomorrow. Happy Birthday weirdo 🙂
We do have to make one small detour and take a small break in our vacation so we can do a little mourning. My mother’s favorite brother – my Uncle Bob – passed away unexpectedly yesterday afternoon. I didn’t get to see him much, but I loved him and my mama was very close to her big brother. He had a wood working shop in his basement where he made all sorts of things for our family including my lamps I’ve told you about, a table for my mom, my sister a rolling pin, and just last month he and AJ the birthday boy made a bird house for my sister in law. He was so good at it! He came up just this Monday to see my mama for memorial day and get another tree from her yard that had fallen to make more things for our family. I think my favorite thing about him was just how giving he was! He would do anything for anybody. He drove a bus for a few years and proved just that to a lot of people. God gained a good man for his team yesterday.
I do have some blogs scheduled for next week while I’m on vaca so be sure to come on back 🙂 I hope you all have a great week.
