Over the Coffee Mug Musings

Today is one of my "domestic" days.  I am going from room to room,
dusting, fluffing, vacuuming.  I like everything to be all neat and tidy
before the weekend so we can mess it all up again :-)

We have lived in this house long enough now that I need to start
cleaning out drawers and closets.  Sometimes I wish the drawer and 
closet genie would show up in the middle of the night and quietly
get it all done.  I don't mind straightening out a closet once I get
started, but it's the getting started part that takes some effort for me.

This morning when David was leaving for work, we kissed each other as we do
every time either of us leave the house.  I stopped for a moment watching him
leave through the back door and thought how much I love him.  This coming
Monday we will be celebrating our 26th anniversary.  Although I was very much
in love on our wedding day, I can honestly say that I love him even more now.

All of the couple friends that we had before we were married are also
old married couples now.  We are still friends too.  Some of them live
in Houston and it's fun to visit with them.  All either have grown kids or
kids in college.  David's sister Cindy who also lives in Houston is now
the grandmother to four little ones.  I remember when her then young
daughters were at our wedding.  Now those daughters are grown with
husbands and children of their own.  The youngest, Angela is not married
yet, but has a boyfriend and she is in grad school at UT.  Time marches
on, but sometimes a bit too fast!

I don't know if you have noticed yet or not, but I have started a 
cooking segment on my blog each week.  I am really happy when I
am in the kitchen with music in the back ground and creating 
something yummy to eat.  I hope you'll stop by to check it out from
time to time and give me feedback too.  This is a maiden effort for me
so let's just jump in and see where it takes us.  Maybe Bentley and I 
will start a YouTube cooking show :-)

I used to be such a voracious reader, and I have not been reading
as much as I once was.  I am changing that trend.  I have a library
card once again and am catching up on must reads.  What about you?
What are you currently reading?

Well, I suppose I have rambled on long enough now.  Oh, and look what
I see right above this little vignette you see here  ….

It's a snail on the window.  It's been so wet here that snails are
everywhere!  He looks big in this picture but is actually a tiny one and
there is another one not too far away from him.  I better move both of 
them far away.  The snails have already consumed one of my
Impatiens and I don't want them chomping away on any more

Have a great Thursday y'all!

Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley


  1. Pretty chair! Congratulations on 26 years. xoxo Su

  2. Your home always looks so comfortable and lived in. Congratulations on 26 years. That/s a milestone in today's society. I agree that when you marry someone you love, that love grows by the years and turns into a completely different kind of love. A forever love.

    Tiff and I are headed to Texarkana early in the morning.

    Have a great weekend.


  3. Congrats on 26 years, Susan. I can just imagine you and Bentley with your own cooking show. How fun. xo Laura

  4. Congratulations on 26 years. Love that little teapot!!

  5. We just celebrated our 9th anniversary on May 26! I love to read too, I just started reading A Fall of Marigolds by Susan Meissner, it's my first time reading any of her books so I'm anxious to finish and read more of hers!
    Congrats on your 26th anniversary too♥


  6. Beautiful Post. Bentley is blessed to have both you and David
    I am reading Springtime in Magnolia by Willie Latane Barton.

  7. Hey, Susan! Happy 26th anniversary! Something to be proud of! Love your latest vignettes!

  8. My internet has been down for a few days. Aghhhhhhh! So I was happy to read today that you made it through the bad weather. I thought of you. We have had thunderstorms here nearly everyday for awhile now, but nothing compared to Texas. Stay safe and continue to let us know how you are. Oh....and you seem to have such a happy and close relationship with your husband....that is a precious and splendid blessing . You are truly blessed.

  9. I've been in a reading mood for a couple of weeks now. I use my library card and hardly buy books anymore. When I was a kid I would read everything by an author I liked. I've started doing that again. Reading in order is more fun, but that doesn't always work out with library books so I accept it and make the best of it.

  10. Congratulations on your 26 years of happy marriage, Susan. Your home looks so lovely here, and so comfortable too. Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

  11. Oh goodness! Weren't the storms awful?! I hear we are getting more this weekend. I live a couple of hours north of Houston. We may be near each other? Anyway, love, love, love your home... Happy Anniversary!



Bentley and I LOVE and read every comment.
