Freezing weather?

This is winter in Houston!
Green and tropical...

Bananas are almost
ready to harvest!

Sweetie and Buddy

Brrr! The temperature
is a chilly 55 degrees!

Welcome to Houston!

The Renaissance Chick Is Lit...

I was feeling
like an underachiever
this weekend.
Every blog features
beautiful Christmas decorations
going up in homes.
So I thought I better
get busy and catch up.
Thought I would share 
my Christmas decorations.

We found the perfect
Christmas tree for our family room!

Lurch and I had to try
to out Dew each other,
but we finally got this tree
up in our kitchen!

I couldn't believe that this tree
was still on the tree lot!
Did we get lucky or what?
This tree greets the guests
in our foyer!

After a full day of decorating,
it didn't take Lurch and me
long to build this tree
in our bar!

Okay, maybe Lurch got carried
away with the lights
on this tree on our front porch,
but after that bar tree...
need I say more?

Okay, I will admit it...
Lurch and I had our annual
Christmas tree decorating fight
after he fell off the ladder twice...
remember the bar tree?
So now this is my favorite tree!

Whew! I am feeling a little better now!

Girly Finds Of The Week...

I love some of my girly
finds this week.
Isn't this photo the best?

Lace and ruffles
and gloves...
oh, my!

This old picture makes my
brain work overtime!
Who matted this 
picture with notebook paper?
This picture tells a story...
just wish I knew it!

A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words...

I could be a 
bragging Grammy
and tell you what a
wonderful cheerleader
Madisyn is,
but I don't have to do that!
All you have to do is check out
this photo that was taken
 last week at the 
"Pee Wee Super Bowl".

Can you spot Madisyn?
Hint: She is the one with her foot over her head!

Sure wish Grammy could do that!

My Favorite Turkey Recipe!

Thanksgiving is a time for sharing...
so I thought I would share
my favorite turkey recipe!

I guarantee you
that this recipe
will create some
special memories!

First, break out
your best crystal!

Fill up that lovely
ice bucket that you
and Martha Stewart made!

Now, carefully bring out
the Turkey!
Don't drop it!
That would be a disaster!

Here are the instructions:

1. Fill the glass with ice.

2. Fill the glass with Wild Turkey.

3. Put your feet up after all
that hard work in the kitchen.

4. Drink and refill as necessary!

No, you didn't!
You didn't just ask me
about the Thanksgiving
vegetables, did you?

I'm not through with my recipe!

Add cranberries
and rosemary
to finish off your
holiday meal!

Now wasn't that better
than last year's
Thanksgiving turkey?

Now, this is my kind
of holiday meal!

It Was Lost But Now Is Found...

I found it!

It has been a long search.
It has been at least 30 years!
I never thought I would see it again...
but here it is.
I am not sure how I stumbled upon it,
but I am so glad I did!

Inner Peace...
Pure joy!

It is true!

I was gone...even if you didn't notice!
I was with Waldo...well, Waldo's brother, Lurch.
Yes, I am afraid that I am coming back!
I did leave town and traveled to West Texas.
I am in total love with a new person in my life...
here is his photo!

Meet my new love...
Cash was born last Friday.
He weighed 6 pounds and 15 ounces
and was 20 inches long.
His hair is super blonde
and he is gorgeous!

Sorry I have ignored you...
but look at this face!
