Heading to Knoxville

We are heading back to VOL country today!! We are visiting with some wonderful friends, and hanging out in Knoxville a bit. I have a "work thing" on Tuesday, so this is a perfect opportunity to spend some quality time with some of our favorite people.

I WILL post pictures soon.

Hanging around with Uncle Jude

My Little Bro' has been coming down and visiting a lot lately (YAY!) and here is a photo from when he and the Dude ground coffee beans until we ran out of beans!!! And just one of the Dude just hangin' (before his hair cut).

Lazy Lazy sundays

My FAVORITE thing (or one of them, anyway) is to hang out in bed on a Sunday morning. I consider it one of life's great pleasures. In fact, I was a regular church* goer for years until I finally accepted the fact that I FAR prefer being lazy in bed with a cup of coffee over going and getting in touch with any form of so-called "higher being" (fortunately for Quakers we are allowed to feel that way and it's still okay).

Anyway, I digress.

BM (that's Before Minute) it used to be that on weekends I would hang out reading a good book and drink coffee in my 'jammies in bed.Then the Dude came along and hijacked my life, and I no longer had that luxury. Well, NOW that the Dude is a little older, he too has become a lazy Sunday type. Now, we hang out in bed, we read books (although the content isn't what it used to be!! No more murder mysteries for me; it's all "Big Truck book, Mommy" and "Read Tractor Book, Mommy"), we tell stories, and we sing silly songs. This Sunday MM wanted his picture taken while he hammed it up between books. These photos are the result.

As an aside, I have been taking tons of photos of MM, but he does this really creepy smile now when the camera comes out, and well, it is akin to the look my cat gets when she sees a grasshopper....It basically looks like he's going to attack me. Needless to say, NOT the best photos to share with y'all!

*we Quakers call it "Meeting", not church, FYI
