National Margarita Day

Sunday, February 22 is a great day! Hanging out in West University, Houston, Texas at Under the Volcano enjoying a delicious Margarita on the rocks. As we sit on the patio with fans blowing and it’s 75 degrees, two people having funny conversations, one person working on their laptop, another sitting reading the paper and their dog laying on the ground. I love Houston atmosphere and hospitality. People smile at you, say hello and are courteous to share a table with you. Sunday’s are my favorite day to relax out on a patio in Houston.


What do your Sunday’s look like? Do you enjoy the outside? Are you a inside bar only person? Whatever your preference is, enjoy yourself and surround it with good people, good food and good beverages.




Day 12 Rest Day – #21EarlyDays with JRose!

Day 12 is a day of rest because it’s Sunday! Yeah, yeah, today was not an early day for me, but I did wake up at 7:30a. I got a lot done this morning which included running errands, a little bit of yard work and some cleaning of my house. It’s 6pm right now and I should be doing some laundry, but we just got back from the grocery store and I figured I owed my readers a blog today. 🙂

Yesterday was a lot of fun. We attended the Houston Vintage Market, I bought a cute vintage navy handbag that I LOVE!! My daughter bought a vintage camera and a locket that is very cute. Dinner was fun with my boss and co-workers. Then we came home and went to bed. I didn’t sleep well because the younger child was out with friends and well, momma always worries.


Today we had some friends over for the football game. It was fun having people over, I miss entertaining. It use to be a must in my home at least 3 times a month, but life has gotten the better of us and we simply just don’t have time. That’s it!! I am going to make time to do it again. I miss my friends and the fun times we had together. I need to make that happen!

Well, I need to get stuff done, but before I go here’s another little It’s Never Too Late….

 to make your house a home

Stamp your personality on your home.

Invest some love in it.

Give it something of yourself.

Your colours.

Your pictures.

Your favorite objects.

In return, it will welcome you

and your friends.

Happy Sunday all!



Day of Rest – #21EarlyDays with JRose

it’s not Day 6 – It is a day of rest for this chick! Well, actually no because I am working on social media and education stuff for work. But I did sleep in and it felt good. You know God rested on Sunday and I felt that I needed that too. I still managed to wake up early and enjoy the cool weather as I sat in the garage while my husband is building me a dining table. Whoo Hoo!

My view today for at least 5 hrs.

My view today for at least 5 hrs.

There is a lot to do today besides work stuff. I have laundry to put away (all that laundry I did last week), I have to spruce up my house, go grocery shopping and visit with my parents later today. Maybe I should have woken up earlier…*sigh.

Sundays are usually days that I like to unplug myself from the world, spend time with family and friends on a face-to-face basis. It’s hard when you have so many distractions, so many obstacles in your way. I will do my best to make that a goal in the future, but for today the internet is my friend because I am working. But with working I must have music. I can listen to pretty much anything, because music moves my soul. Today and almost every Sunday, I am listening to the station on Pandora called “Sunday Brunch”. Great jazz musicians from all over, new and old. I love it.

Another little tidbit from the book It’s Never Too Late by Patrick Lindsay,

It’s never too late….to enjoy the music

We all have unique soundtracks to our lives.

So free your spirit.

Surrender to the rhythm.

Let your mind chill.

Let your heart rise.

Music is what you make of it.

It calms.

Or raises passions.

It transports.

It recalls memories.

Happy Sunday!

Cheers, JRose
