More Weddings

Today Gary and I attended a reception for Darrell and Sommer who were married a month ago in Michigan. Darrell used to work for Gary as a software developer; it was our first time to meet Sommer.

At exactly the same time, Chelsey and Chuck were being married in Denton. Chelsey was a friend of Rachel and David.

It is that time of life for my kids when all their friends are getting married. I pray God will one day bring the right person to them at the right time, and they will love and be loved without doubt or hesitation.

Clean Dishes

My life has hit a new low.

Tonight there was a cockroach half the size of Rhode Island inside my dishwasher. And the dishes inside were already clean. Now they're really clean since I had to run the dishwasher again.

Gary is never much help when I try to act like a helpless female around Texas-bred roaches. He just mutters something about "they're God's creatures too" and picks them up and throws them outside. Or sometimes he kills them.

Original Art

Rachel is fortunate to have these examples of original art in her apartment. All of them, except the pottery, started as photographs.

This is the Dallas skyline, from a photo Rachel took when she went to a Maverick's game with friends a couple years ago.

Everyone takes photos of bluebonnets.

Grandma Judy makes beautiful pottery. I love to give her pottery as wedding gifts.

Grandpa Wendell has taken up making stained glass, and asked for a photo of a kitty we used to have.

The last one is a woodburning, made by an MK friend. Rachel took the photo when she was a camp counselor a couple years ago.

Me and Baby

I know I said I wouldn't post any more Honduras photos, but I came across this one today when I was sorting some of my photos, and I just had to post it.
