Phone Dump...Again...

Maybe I ought to say phone dump still...there needs to be many of these so I can be caught up...

Britt & Jaycey went shopping... I absolutely love that my kids will go ahead and get up in a display.

They're cool like that.

Even if they make an extremely forlorn photo...


Just liked this


And this...because questioning is better than not...


One of the moments on facebook that made me smile...


Jaycey sent me her recipe...I used the missionaries as guinea pigs...they gave their thumbs up approval... I'll make it again...


In case you want the recipe...credit to Jaycey...


Here's young William who woke up before his daddy...


Just think on it...


Played cribbage on my birthday present...


Said birthday present...the umbrella has lights on the seams...


That made gorgeous reflections on the glass when it was dark...


Two sistahs...otherwise known as my nieces...


One of Eddie & Kim's caricatures from their trip...


For Britt...


A huge crop of mushrooms that magically appeared on the lawn...

Phone Dump

Robin Williams died...I remembered a moment of my life that I felt like this scene in Hook...when I happened to see myself in the mirror and recognized my eyes because I was "me" again...


Every time Oprah does the meditating thing, I think, "I'm going to do this every day!!!"

I don't make it through.  But I'll keep joining in.

This day one centering thought made me stop and be still...


This was a view I had for a long long time on the highway.

When I was almost home after driving cross country by myself.

And instead of driving, we were all in park...


I got home...to discover that my husband had watered my plant.

Once.

While I was gone.

Once...was not enough...



It perked up nicely within 12 hours...but there's still yellow damage that I got to give him a mini-hard time about...



I also planned it nicely so Amazon would deliver season...whoops...those Brits don't call it season...Series 6 and we could finish out the series.  Now.  To wait until next year when the next series comes out...


And aren't those great-nephews of mine just beautiful?


Christmas was out in Sam's Club in August.


Bittersweet...


Doug got a photo op of a little black bear dude out in the wilds...


My dessert plate at a chinese buffet...I didn't mean to make a smile, but...when I saw it, I had to document it...


What happened to fortune cookies?  This one isn't even a saying...I don't know what this one is...

Let There Be Tears

There are times when I ache for my parents.

This seems to be one of those times.

I miss my mom.

I miss my dad.





Now back to my regularly scheduled day...

Two Quarters

My daughter sent me another picture from Comic Con...

My nephew posted a new picture...

The picture of my daughter made me happy because she lets us do the Beaker comparison...and she found him!

The picture of my nephew made me happy because I love that guy.  He is firmly entrenched in my heart.  Has been from the first moment I was his aunt.

My daughter and my nephew are the same age...Michael is almost two months older than Brittany.

So..here are my two favorite 25-year-olds...wish they were around each other more...



Aren't they just awesome?!?
