To Paint....or Not to Paint...

Surviving the August Heat



Wow! It sure is hot in Texas. I hope where you are you are keeping cool.

It has been a very busy month for our family and we are looking forward to September when the rush is over and the weather starts getting cooler.


I just got back from my high school reunion. (I won't mention what year. Ha!) It was an 8 hour drive to get to my hometown. There were some happy times and some sad times. In case you didn't read on my website about me, my husband and I were high school sweethearts, but after 42 years, when I was single after many years of marriage and he was single I found him on facebook. Surprisingly, we both were still in Texas and only lived an hour appart. So, we went to lunch and we both knew that we belonged together. Anyway, while we were home, we drove around the city and my had it changed. I lived in the same house until I was 17, then we moved across the street because my parents owned that house too. It was a rental that constantly needed repairs, so my dad and the "kids" worked hard and remodeled it. It worked out because we moved my grandmother into our old house. Anyway, I dated my husband my senior year but he had already enlisted into the Navy, so we didn't see much of each other. He wasn't as good of a letter writer as I was, but I don't hold that against him. Long story short, we soon married and have been happy ever since. (Folks like to hear our story). But, driving around town was sad to see my old neighborhood after many years is not the memory I had imbedded in my brain. It was very run down and the residence did not take care of the homes. However, the homes that my husband remembered were fairly decent. That just shows there is a circle of life in everything.


On a good note, the reunion was great. I volunteered to make name tags for almost 100 attendees. Everyone knew I would add my artistic touch to the name tags and they were most gracious. We received an award for that and for having the "Coolest Last Name". I went to the stage and my husband, being the ham he is stood up and took a bow to the audience. The event took place in a Heritage Center, so the historical artifacts were very interesting. I enjoyed seeing many of my classmates. Everyone had changed so much, but luckily the name tags had their senior picture and maiden name if applicable, so that helped a lot. It was heartbreaking to see the list of those passed on. Otherwise, we all had a good time and appreciated each other.


Moving on, we are very excited that my son (my baby) who is actually 31, is getting married next week. I am so proud of the man he has become and the beautiful and wonderful woman he has chosen for life. They look like Barbie and Ken. (No, I didn't see the movie, so nothing is implied here). I know everyone is excited and looking forward to the event. For me, I found the dress I really like and could afford and now I have on my list to buy waterproof mascara and eyeliner. Oh yeah, I am a sap.


I wanted to share this with all of you so that you could get to know me a little better. You are welcome to follow me on facebook or do a friend request because I want to get to know you too. For those of you who have joined my members group, thank you and I hope you are enjoying the videos. I will be opening a private facebook group for those in the Tiffany level membership. This is my highest membership level and it has quite a few perks for just a few dollars more. I want to know what you think and what you would like to see in tutorials. So, please reach out to me.


In the meantime, take care and remember to appreciate and validate the people in your life. It means so much to them even if they don't show it.
