New Puppy!

New Puppy!

Yesterday we had to take our sweet Gwinnie to the vet for her shots.  She was excited to get out of the house and go somewhere in the car, and she was excited to be at the vet, where there were so many smells!  Oh, the smells! It was fairly uneventful: she barely felt the(…)

Paul and I have been extravagantly blessed with the children God has placed in our lives, both our own as well as all the neighborhood kids who are our God-children. It would be impossible to pick any favorites – we love them all so much! But I kind of lie – because there’s Joanthony “Jovi” Gonzales,(…)

Spending ALL the money!

Spending ALL the money!

It only takes a spark to get a fire going, they say… well, to tweak the phrase, it only takes one trip to the college bookstore with two college students to empty the bank account. Ok, that was more than a tweak, but you get my point, yes?  Even if we did get off easy(…)

Last week a very momentous milestone was reached in the Heidmann family.  Megan Olivia reached voting age! In lieu of a party on her actual birthday, Paul took the family out for dinner to Westgate Which Wich (which, if you haven’t been there, has DA BEST sandwiches EVAHH!). The real party, however, came on Friday.(…)

This past weekend was busy in some unusual ways.  For Paul it was, perhaps, busiest of all, as he had to take a flying trip up to the ranch after work on Thursday for a Friday morning meeting of the Carrizo Ranch Association.  Apparently it was a good, cordial and productive meeting, with little of(…)

Despite the preponderance of negativity about our country and its citizens everywhere I looked on the internet yesterday, our family was able to enjoy a pleasant interlude as we gathered at Paul’s brother Jon’s house for food, fellowship, firecrackers, face-painting and fun.  Squealing children, the snap of poppers, the crackling of sparklers, plus loads of(…)

I Wear My Sunglasses…

I Wear My Sunglasses…

“Take a picher of me!” Who am I to say no? But then… the sunglasses… the smolder… the smirk… oh my. He’s too much!

Autumn Leaves

Autumn Leaves

This week I have been sitting in my recliner chair in the living room most of the time, and it has given me the opportunity to contemplate my surroundings, including in particular, one piece of my own artwork that hangs on the living room wall.  A long time ago, I did several reproductions in pastel(…)

It’s been a long week … and a half

It’s been a long week … and a half

I will try to hit the highlights that have happened since the crash: On Wednesday I got to tow the van to a neighborhood body shop.  Driving lead car to a place I’d never been and whose address my husband did not remember (and which of course does not have a website one can simply(…)

Boom! Smash! Oww! (Whoops!)

Boom! Smash! Oww! (Whoops!)

It should have been easy-peasy; a walk in the park; a piece of cake – take your pick, any metaphor will do. Mom had a check up downtown at her doctor’s office this afternoon, and since I was working on some school with the kids, I let Laurent play chauffeur for the trip.  I made(…)
