Thursday and still no news

Still waiting to hear if the Antique mall will be opened for business anytime soon. I talked to the owner this week and he was hoping that the city would pass the structure. A real bummer to have been in the mall for two days and then the tornado hits.
I feel very concerned for the people that do this for an actual income. I would be very upset if I had no income coming in. Thankfully it is just a hobby so that is a relief.
I have been busy going to estate sales and auctions to  get some cool stuff to put in the booth. I am sure that my honey is ready to move me and my stuff into the backyard! :0)
HOT HOT and more HOT is what the weather has been like here. The dogs have been telling us thank you everyday for the nice cool air they lounge in everyday.

Bright Star

If you have never been to the Bright Star Auction house in Sulphur Springs it is quite an experience. They have wonderful items and the auctioneer is pretty good as well. Of course their food is delicious and it appears to be all homemade. I picked up a few things but the one that I am most excited about is the dehydrator.
I have no idea how old it is or really anything about it, for whatever reason it just spoke to me. I thought maybe that I could use it as a display cabinet of some sorts. Would love to find some literature on it.

Can I retire yet????

I can picture myself here on the porch watching the birds and listening to the country! Isn't this an awesome tree! I love this little slice of heaven.

High School is done

I am happy to say that all three of our girls are done with High School now, two have completed college, and one will start in the fall. Erin was accepted at A&M, Southwestern, and was wait listed at the University of Chicago. She chose to go to Southwestern and will start in the fall.
So we are now empty nesters so to speak, although the dogs require just as much attention. We recently had checks stolen from our mailbox so we have been dealing with all the ramifications of that. Doing all your bill pay through auto draft is great until you have to change all the information! :0(
Enough about that kind of yuck stuff! Erin had a busy day Saturday and we went and ate dinner at Benihanna's, she had never been. I think she enjoyed it and of course Stephanie and I love it there. Then back to work after a long weekend, seems like it has been a whole week already at work and it has just been two days!
