Can I just say that "catching up" is really hard to do when you're still finding yourself in the middle of something constantly?
Some may have even noticed that my life was full enough this week to cause me to miss (and completely forget about for the entire day) my Music Monday post.
But Grandad (my father-in-law) was adamant that she make sure and also give him a granddaughter (and I also was eager to buy girlie things again!).
So Les and her husband Saleem did their best and granted our wish.
My precious niece, Camryn, who is almost a month old now!
And Camryn napping with her big bro Ryan...
Leslie and her family live in New Jersey, so unfortunately it will be a while before I get to see them.
But since I have no siblings to provide me with nieces or nephews,
A spiral staircase from Bordeaux, France with it's very own ghost story.

The best shot I could get of the "Steel Magnolias" house
African house built by slaves
This is a window on the side of the African house that something wouldn't let me take a picture of.
I must have tried 20 times to take this pic, but my camera would malfunction every time.
I finally went inside and took the second picture and then was able to come back out and take this.
The show "Ghost Adventures" investigated these buildings in one of their episodes.
But it wasn't until I walked into one of the buildings and recognized this sole chair in the corner that I realized that this was the same place.
After a tiring day of traversing large plantations, we enjoyed a leisurely dinner and then off to the casino!
Too bad casinos aren't legal in Texas.
I did pretty well actually.
And it was definitely needed.
So I am certainly grateful.
The next day we started heading back to the Houston area and on the way, stopped at another casino.
This one was way nicer, but wasn't as forthcoming with the jackpots.
So home I went with my pockets and memories much richer.
Well, it is time once again for me to break away from the catching up and get back to the doing.
I will be back sooner than later to finish up.
To be continued...and finished?...next time...
