Look who is sitting pretty! 
Its our grandbaby that is who! She is one smiley girl - loves exploring the world with her hands and mouth. She is getting enough hair now that it is time for cute little tiny hair clips - what fun I had looking at one fabulous store in Tulsa, OK called Kathleen's Kids. I found itty bitty ones and called my daughter to ask her for color requests. I picked them out, paid, and quickly left the store before I really got into shopping. We delivered them to her today. We have been hugging, talking to, cuddling, kissing, tickling, and generally making fools of ourselves on her behalf.  What fun! Tomorrow I'm taking a walk with my grandbaby before it heats up here - so early we shall be on the path of some nice streets of Dallas when dawn breaks. I'll get to enjoy my daughter and granddaughter in the quiet of a summer morning - can't suggest anything I'd rather do!  (no not even tea sipping or knitting)
Speaking of tea sipping, tomorrow I'm taking lunch with friends and family at a Neiman Marcus' lunch room - it will be delightful! Its a splurge that doesn't fully break the bank - and it begins with their wonderful chicken broth and the largest fresh-from-the-oven popovers I've ever seen. The popovers are served with strawberry butter - and all this is presented before the food you ordered for lunch arrives! The service is impecable thus you feel like royalty. Its a special spot to have a 'lets do lunch'. We will be women from Texas: Houston, Waxahaxie,  and Dallas, as well as Oklahoma: Tulsa. The women gathering are those who have a heart for God - it will be many generations at the table, some related, some friends, all soon to be friends. There will be some iced tea sipping instead of hot tea as its in the 3 digits of temperatures. We will be positively "glowing" as we arrived. Wish you could join us!
As we drove here today I finished up a small dishcloth project. a mid-July monthly dishcloth pattern I wasn't able to do day by day as the instructions arrived via email. I took the 4 1/2 hours of our drive to knit, listen to a podcast, visit with my dear husband, and answer my phone as friends and kids called about this or that. It was a perfectly sunny day with blue skies and white puffy clouds - a lovely drive it was. It is a mini-vacation for us. I'll knit some more at night in our hotel room before sleeping each night. And speaking of night, I need to get my rest so I can bounce out of bed for that morning walk. Nite, nite!
Truth for Life
O LORD, I will honor and praise your name, for you are my God. 
You do such wonderful things!
You planned them long ago, and now you have accomplished them.
Isaiah 25:1
