family banks


Well it almost got cold in Houston, so I decided to take advantage and wear some longer sleeves. I wish this weather would just make up it’s mind.

I love prints, so when I saw this vintage dress at the thrift store I just had to get it! I already owned this awesome fabric for the head scarf and together I thought it was a great look. 

Thanksgiving is tomorrow, and my family had made plans for dinner at my Grandad’s, but yesterday he fell and broke his hip, so now our plans have all been postponed. 

It was pretty scary to see him in so much pain. Thankfully I work as a caregiver to him, so I, as well as my mom and sister, were there only minutes after the fall.

This was the whole reason I moved back to Houston…to be with and help my Grandad. My Grandmother passed away this time last year, so it’s been a strange time being in this city without her and I can only imagine how that’s affected Granddaddy, after all they were married for over 60 years (unbelievable!). 

In my family, on both my mom and dad’s sides, every event pretty much revolves around the Grands, so this season is already proving to be pretty tough for me. My Grandad is the last of my Grands and I’m really struggling with this. However, I am so so grateful to be able to be spending so much time with him now. There are so many distractions in life, the only thing that really matters are the relationships you have with people and the memories you make with them. Time is precious, don’t let it slip away from you.

Chapter 5 

Dinner had been perfect.  Cas took you to this little diner on the edge of town.  The food was delicious and the conversation between you and Cas flowed easily. You talked about your work, how you were an accountant at a local bank, your family.  Cas told you how he always wanted to be a fireman, ever since he was in grade school, told you about his family, his father the author and his brother Gabriel.

He was walking you out to the car when you decided to ask.  “Cas…this is going to seem awkward…but is your brother dating anyone?”

Cas gave you a look before chuckling.  “Wow…” He opened the car door for you.  “This date must be going really badly.”  

“No!  It’s just, I have a friend…Kali.”  You reached into your purse and pulled out your phone. There was no good way to explain Kali, so you figured a visual aid would help.  You brought up your messages and showed him, making him laugh out loud as he read the messages.

I couldn’t make this up even if I wanted too, I saw the most beautiful family today and honest to God, they looked like they were what the percabeth family would look like. I tried my hardest to capture their beauty and just pure love for each other but honestly, this doesn’t even hold a candle to their perfection.

On display in Kingston Lacy is an important collection of fine art and antiquities built up by many generations of the Bankes family, the core having been assembled by Sir Ralph Bankes in Gray’s Inn before the house was built.[10] One of the rooms, the Spanish Room (named by reason of the Murillo paintings which hang there), has walls hung with gilded leather. It was recently restored at a cost of several hundred thousand pounds over a five-year period. Other important collections include paintings of the Bankes family stretching back over 400 years. Other artworks include works by Velázquez, Van Dyck, Titian and Brueghel.

the ironic nazi is a lie that people who constantly interact with explicitly fascist, racist content tell themselves. they don’t even tell it to themselves explicitly, it’s more like “if i don’t laugh at this who will”, “we only use slurs ironically” and “we only joke about racist stereotypes so [racial slur]s will take themselves less seriously” but slowly they get increasingly drawn into the serious nazi shit and next thing you know they’re spouting conspiracies about the jewish families controlling banks and media.
