We are back home.

Don't look at the dates on the photos, they are all messed up. These were all taken on the 14th, 15th and 16th of February.

Look what I found in my daughters yard. This was the only one in bloom but there were lots of plants with buds.

We watched the birds and squirrels at the feeders.

That is a squirrel in the wood feeder and a bird of some type on the red feeder. They have tons of birds and squirrels at their house. I told Harley Guy he needed a bird book and binoculars. It would be nice to have a camera with a great zoom.

We went to the Cowboy Hall of Fame. Loved every minute of it.

We had a great time there. We spent all afternoon looking at painting, sculptures, guns, saddles, native American artifacts. They have tons of things, most are priceless. We didn't get to see the whole museum because they announced closing time, darn it. We did get our exercise that afternoon.

Doesn't that look just like a real cowboy leaning against the doorway with his dog.

Beautiful paintings, this was one of my favorites.

Of course The Duke was there.

How can you have a cowboy hall of fame without the Duke! Not a good picture but you can tell it is him. I always loved his movies.

As I said a good time was had by all. I thank my daughter and son in law for keeping us busy and helping my husband to relax. He really need that great weekend. We ate very well. My daughter is a fantastic cook and she kept us well fed.

Until next time.

OMG, I was give an Award!

Awards like this have been created with the intention of promoting community among Bloggers. It’s a great way to show appreciation and gratitude for work that adds value to the Web.

Staci from The Bliss of it All
gave me this award. This is my first award. Thank you Staci. Now I have to start blogging more.

I love Staci's blog. She writes about Oklahoma. My home state that I miss so much. I don't live that far away. I do get to go back every few months but it's not the same as living there.
She writes about family from long ago and how they lived on the plains of Oklahoma. Her photographs of the early years remind me of my grandparents. Our grandparents and great grandparents were a hearty breed. They survived so much and did it with a smile and love for God, family and country.

Pictures of My Finished Kitchen

I just realized that I didn't ever show my finished kitchen. So here it is, I love it.

The photo above is directly above my sink. When my daughter and I found this at Star Lumber we knew we had to have it. This is how I selected the rest of the tile for my kitchen.

If you enlarge the picture you can see the little decorative tiles. The colors in them went well with the medallion.

Please pay no attention to the dirty glasses in the sink. I just hadn't put them into the dishwasher yet, okay.

Just another view. If the tiles look chipped around the edges, they are. That is the way they are made. I liked it and they are not sharp or rough. After 30 years of a crappy kitchen I really enjoy my new kitchen. Now for the floor, soon real soon I hope.
