Hi, everyone!
I hope you are having a great Monday and that your weekend was fabulous!

Mondays, are hard for me, too many chores after "slacking" all weekend. :)  Well, I managed to get the grocery shopping done Saturday morning and we also gave our very large front yard a good cleaning and lots of attention on Sunday, so it was not a complete relaxing weekend.

And we get extra "brownie" points for doing all this with the high temperatures we are having. 
Boy, it is hot and humid in Texas!

After all this "hard work", we made time for a little family lunch Sunday afternoon. Nothing like some good Texas barbecue after a long hot morning of doing yard work. Yum! And a little nap afterwards! LOL

  13. We don't have the humidity yet, but we've certainly got the high temps (110ish), so any outside work has to be finished before 9a.m. Glad you rewarded yourselves with a lunch out! We have a great BBQ spot in our area, too. It's called Joe's & is so, so good! Thanks for hosting the party!
