Weekend in Words

Friday night we went to the Casting Crowns concert and it was great. I love their music and the messages behind the music. We did sit pretty high up and I was disappointed that the humongous Toyota Center in Houston did not have screens up high, so we (at least me and my diminishing eyesight - even with contacts) had a hard time seeing anything. They did have a huge screen in behind the band, but it did not enhance much. I don't mean to complain, I was very thankful to go. The kids were a lot of fun, the music was good so I will be positive and remember those two things. We also heard Leeland who was one of the openers, but we missed John Waller due to "stinkin' Houston traffic".
Yesterday we went to Michael's birthday party in the afternoon. In the evening I drove a carload to the Haunted Hotel in Nederland. Kendra was scared to death. It took us an hour to find the place and only took them 15 minutes to get through the place. At $10 a ticket, for a 15 minute tour, they were bringing in some kind of money.
Last night we slept with the windows open and it was lovely. The temperatures were cool but not cold and with ceiling fans going in the bedrooms it was heavenly. Today the temperatures have been mild all day long, with breezes blowing in through the open windows and I am loving it. I love it here when the weather gets mild - cool but not cold. Nice.


  1. Sounds like a great concert. You always seem to be doing something new and interesting.

  2. What a difference a couple of years makes! Casting Crowns came to our church about 6 months before they made it big. They did 5-6 songs and we were sitting in the 10th row in our sanctuary! WOW!


Awaiting your words......
