We arrived here yesterday evening to. Everything has gone well with the usual travel concerns such as road repairs to slow us down a bit. Oh, and somewhere between yesterday morning and this morning I lost the little bag that has my make-up in it. Grrrr. I'll be going to Walgreens in a while to replace the essentials, but the biggest loss is the parts that I use only occasionally and are going to be expensive to replace. When I put on more make-up than just mascara and blush I use Bare Essentials, and those are more pricey than the drug store variety. Of course they were in that bag, too. Again, grrrr. I went through my truck with hopes of finding it, then my niece went out with me, and we took everything out of it without luck. I called the niece-in-law, and she checked there but failed to find it. I'm guessing it fell out on one of our stops. Grrrrr.
I also left my shower bag with shampoo, etc., in NM. That wasn't quite as bad, but It contained all those things you take into the shower, so I had to borrow face washing stuff and shampoo and all that for this morning. Yesterday I washed with some disposable face wash pads that I carry when I travel (in the bag that I lost, of course!), and didn't notice I was missing the shower bag itself. Grrrr.
So this afternoon I went out and replaced all my make-up and the little bag it was in. I opted of less expensive things rather than the "name brands" and it still cost me over $100 to replace it all. Grrrr.
I think I'll go growl myself to sleep. grrrrr. :)(: No, not a big deal, just an inconvenience, and I'm back in business again. I'm enjoying being with family too much to let this get me down!
I didn't realize there are cotton fields in the Lubbock area! Lots and lots of cotton fields! OK, I know some of you are laughing at me, but I just didn't know it! I was also surprised that this late in the year some fields were full and ready to harvest, others had just the bare stalks after being harvested, but mostly surprised that some of the fields were full of bolls that were just beginning to open up. Seemed to me that it is late in the year for not-yet-ready-to-harvest crops. I don't know much about cotton as a crop. Here are some pix:

Actually, just after I took this picture I passed a field on the other side of a house that had another of the "crops" of Texas long horns!! What an interesting mix! I wasn't quick enough to get a pic of the cattle, but I had to share that, anyway.
OK. I'm ready to give you something to enjoy. At my own expense. I began this post around noon today, went shopping, came back and wrote some more. I just went in moments ago (it's 9:30 here) to straighten things up, put away the days purchases, those which I had not already used (the new makeup etc., I used and put away earlier in the day), and when I moved my PJs on the bed ... have you guessed it? Yes, there was my little bag of make-up. I'd covered it with the PJs, one of the few things that we didn't move today!!!!!!! ARRRRGGGGGGHHHHHH! and Grrrr.
Good night. And good grief!!!!
Life is beautiful!!!
Even when I'm a dufus!
