Raining hard all week and instead of looking for instructions on line for building an Ark I decided to use the time for catching up on unfinished projects around the house.
How do you like my chicken fabric for the curtain in my kitchen? I am to embarrassed to tell you how long this project has been calling my name. I have wanted to cover the opening under my counter forever.
Since this house is over a hundred years old there are no kitchen cabinets or drawers in my kitchen. So using my imagination on where to store things is a ongoing problem for me. After hanging the curtains I thought I would use the space for storing some of my groceries.
Even though this picture is not too clear you can see that my putting food under there
was a huge mistake.
You see my daughter left her sweet Toby Friday night for me to babysit the weekend and Saturday morning I woke up to find this waiting for me.
Flour, sugar, corn meal, hot chocolate and who knows what else all over the kitchen floor. I thought it was strange during the night that Toby was awfully quiet and not pacing the floors.
He not only trashed the kitchen but he tracked all over the house. I felt bad fussing at him but Jeez what a mess!
The weekend before was Kaci's Juvenile Diabetes Walk in Austin. I was lucky enough to be able to attend the walk again this year. It was only a two mile walk but for some reason I thought it felt like five miles. haha
It could be because we got there early to walk around for a while and I think by 11:00 I was already tired.
Before the walk I captured some pics of my precious kids. In the pic above my son Clint with his lovely wife Andrea and my grand babies Kaci and Bailey.
Kaci posing with her Uncle Chad. I could not wait to see Chad because it had been a while since I had seen him.
Kaci had a broken ankle so we took turns pushing her in the wheel chair. Here her Aunt Christi and Paul are taking their turn.
Posters of the children with Juvenile Diabetes are placed along the walk. At the end of the walk you can take your poster home with you. In the top pic Bailey is posing with Kaci. I love this picture because if you look closely he is holding two fingers over Kaci's head. How many pictures of my child hood were taken of my brothers doing this to each other. lol
The poster is of Kaci and Bailey in their Halloween costumes.

It was a busy weekend. The walk was Sunday and on Saturday I went to Bailey's last ball game of the year.
He was playing for the championship and his team Won. They were actually undefeated for the season. Awesome Bailey!
I wanted to share this with you something I found out about Social Security that might help some of you that are divorced and were married for over ten years. If you never remarried and your husband is 62 you can file for his social security. I had no idea that I could file on my idiots social security but you can. You of course have to be 62 or older. It is no guarantee that you will get more money than what you draw from your social security but it's worth finding out. In my case they told me I could get maybe a hundred more dollars. I will find out at the end of this month when I go my appointment with them. I did not care if it was ten dollars more I am drawing from the one that pays me the most. haha
I also found out that even though we are divorced if he should pass away before myself then I am entitled to his full social security. I only thought this was for the widows but not true. I hope he lives a long and happy life but it is good information to know.
Also today I signed up for a medicare supplement. Boy medical insurance is expensive even for us on social security. It was hard deciding the right one but I went with Blue Cross Blue Shield. So keep your fingers crossed that I at least get enough from his social security to pay for my supplement. lol
Hope your having a wonderful week. Be gentle on yourself and thanks for stopping by. I love having you here.
Sweet Dreams and Love to All,
