A Little Touch of Houston

I thought I would write a little sooner but......
I got hit with a stomach bug last weekend! Needless to say, not much was seen that weekend.
I have taken pictures here and there when we first arrived, so I thought I'd share them with you. Our first week here has been pleasant. So I am hopeful..... with one more week to go. We hope!

                                                            Minute Maid Park

                              A lawyers Office with neat art outside

 Mr. Sweetladyelaine & I went to subway. Got out of the car turned around this building was staring at us. As we lend back to look at the total building, we almost fell backwards. It is the AIG Building.
Downtown Houston

                                  Another Downtown picture

                                     We took a tour of the Downtown HEB- a grocery store.
                                     I thought these were the  best looking items in the store.
                                                       Of course, I love sweets!

Yesterday, I went to my favorite store.....The Half Priced Book Store! I spent three hours in there.
 I had so much fun......I ended up talking to a woman who went to Lakewood Church (Joel Olsteen).
I shared my house stories with her and guess what she works for Exxon! Perfect!
To catch you up just a little......Exxon is moving here from Irving and the sellers here, are doubling & tripling their house prices. Which has caused everyone, a lot of problems!
She had heard that through the old grapevine....Women, I love us! If it wasn't for the old grapevine I would be dead or maybe worse. Thank God, for that grapevine! lol
We chatted about everything and before we knew it, lots of people were chiming in. I called it a great Monday Meetin' Day! We even called the aisle that we were in, our house! "Come on in to our house and talk awhile! The clerk even joined in while he put away books. A great time talking and meeting new people! I had so much fun.
Downtown is wonderful and I am glad I have had the pleasure to experience it, at least a little!

News about our house: The appraisal is done. Now, we are waiting for mortgage papers to get finished. Pray that as a date for closing is being decided on and movers are contacted and I pack up this hotel suite that it all goes smoothly and with the attitude of our Creator.

Be the change you wish to see in the world!
