Relaxing on the patio

It's been a while 'again' since I've posted. This summer has been so busy for us. And talking about HOT! I'm ready for Fall. We have had some good times with family and friends this summer. These pictures were taken at Stevie's mom's house. We were all sittin' out on the patio and it was so hot.

Stevie's mom...everyone calls her Kaki. She is such a sweet lady. You can tell she really loves her "Mississippi" with her tee-shirt.




Stevie's brother in law...Don and his step-dad...Papa John.



Stevie's niece Shannon and me looking at pictures on my phone. I have about 1200 on my phone. lol I really need to do something about that.










Stevie's sister...Terry and his great niece...Julianna. Shannon's daughter.






Me and Kaki. I had my fly swatter ready! I hate bugs!







Terry and Don. Having a good time.








Me and Shannon. She is so funny! She had us all crackin' up!









Papa John and Kaki. Don't they look cute? Papa John is a character! You can probably tell just by seeing this picture.










Me and Kaki.











I had to throw in my next project. This old dresser was here when I bought my cottage. It's very ugly that's why it has been hidden in my closet this whole time. It's in the same spot that it was in when I bought this place. Too heavy to move. It's solid wood. Anyway...as soon as my back gets better, it's getting a 'paint job'. Gonna paint it Navy blue for my son's room.












Yucky! Can't wait to get that paint brush out! Bought the paint yesterday.













We are leaving in a couple of hours to go and have my MRI done. Hopefully they will figure out why I'm hurting so much. I'm ready to get fixed so I can get back to paintin'. lol

You are so photogenic. I hope they discover what needs to happen to make your pain go away. Pain is no fun at all.

Can't wait to see your dresser makeover.

The lazy days of Summer. It looks like you had a nice time, even if it was hot. We have yet to really sustain warm Summer weather here. I need some heat! It's what makes me look forward to Fall. I wish you good luck with your test and hope you will soon be back in painting form!

Great pictures. Looks like everyone was having a great time. We really need to get together soon. I know Garrett already started school, but maybe we can get together this weekend. My schedule will get crazy when all 3 of mine start with school,football, dance, and homework. Oh yeah, I can do without the jambalaya song lol...
