Things that make you go hmmmmm...

Every Memorial and Veterans Day, a resident of my hometown (the one I lived in when I was born, and hope to end up again someday - the one I drive through 4 times a week on my way to work), puts up these signs on telephone poles along Route 16 for the soldiers killed in Iraq. This year, I believe he's only put up the names of those who have died in the last 6 months, which numbered 653 as of Sunday. This one really got to me...19 years old, not yet old enough to legally drink, but old enough to die for our country. It's tragic.

Sunflower Sundress

I bought this fabric at Jo-Ann's (already smocked), and made it into a dress with straps for Morgan. It didn't take too long and it was fun.

The Black, uh...The Brown, um...The Shower Hole

Here it is, the lovely spot where my tub and shower should be.

Farm Fun

Here's some pictures from our Brownie field trip at the farm last Tuesday. I missed a couple days last week so here's a bunch ;)

The Peace Abbey, Time Lapse

It's getting greener ;)

First photo

Alley Again

My little one, sitting next to my chair at the computer, last Sunday ;)

Stipple Cards

For an ACP challenge. They came out "okay," but I needed a softer brush, I think.


Morgan's fourth recital. On the way there, she was very quiet, I asked her if she was nervous and she said, "No, I'm not nervous, this is my fourth recital. I just want to listen to the music." She did great. I wasn't able to get many (only one), good picture on stage, no flash photography allowed, but here is one after the show was over. She was exhausted! It was after 9:00.

Playing in the Sprinkler!

Yes, it is hot enough today to break out the sprinkler. I hope it cools off when the sun goes down, I’m not a good sleeper in the heat.

May flowers

And, I missed Wednesday, too…To make up for missing so many days, here are a bunch of pictures taken today…

My phlox, in bloom.

Up close and personal with the phlox.

My bleeding heart, this will get at least 3 times this big by the end of spring.

Extreme close up!

A violet (stupid weeds).


Dance, Ballerina, Dance

Yeah, and so I missed Saturday, Sunday and Monday too…This is from Tuesday. Morgan’s Dress Rehearsal for her recital, which is this Friday.

Here's a close up. All the others I took focused behind her, sigh...Not my best photo day.

Goin' to the Chapel

So I missed Wednesday and Thursday. This is from Friday. It’s a bit dark, but it’s from the rehearsal at the Chapel. My brother-in-law, Bob walking Betsy down the aisle. Erica, my niece, made her bow bouquet from presents Betsy got at her shower.

Just an ordinary day

This is my ordinary Thursday ;)

Rite of Passage

My baby no longer needs her big carseats. She's now just in a booster. Here are the two carseats waiting to be taken away in the trash :(

I know, I'm way behind...

I have a couple of photos to post that were taken on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday of last week, but then I fell behind.

Here's Sunday's. This is my little Ginger. The least photogenic of my three cats, and the most neurotic ;)
