Last day of July

Oh my gosh, where did the summer go? It is scary how fast time goes by any more. Today mom and I went shopping. I didn’t get much though. I tried on clothes until I got thoroughly disgusted like I do every time I try on clothes, so I just looked for other things. Here are a couple of pictures I thought were neat. I can’t remember the blog I saw them on so I hope they don’t mind me sharing them with you.

Last Story Hour

Today was our last Wednesday story hour at the library. It has been fun, I’ve really enjoyed it. Today we made paper bag scrapbooks. Their snacks were pretzel sticks dipped in chocolate. One little boy asked me why I was taking a picture of the pretzels and I told him because I thought they were pretty. He set there a minute and then said, ”Whatever.” Just they way he said it was so funny!

Calling all Angels

Yes that’s right. I am calling all angels to come and grant Derek traveling mercies every time he takes a spin on his new motorcycle. Just another thing to add to my already long worry list!

Is it truly possible that a mother can have just one day that she doesn’t have to worry about something? I think not!

On a lighter note, Rusty and I went out to the Farmer’s Market and well Derek wanted us to pick up a pie so we did. It was a called a very berry pie. I always think pies are so pretty so I had to take pictures of course!

Well I made it through story hour today. I took my camera but was so busy doing things I kept forgetting to take pictures. We read, ”If you give a cat a cupcake." We then colored and decorated cupcakes and we also colored and decorated these stuffed cats and they had each other sign their names to them. The only thing I did manage to get a picture of was the snack, it was ice cream decorated like a cat.

Looks like this cat from a picture I found somewhere really does like cupcakes!!

Here is a bag Keila made. It is a reversible Schlep bag. I’m not sure why it is called that but anyway I thought it was really cute. As always, don’t forget clicking on pictures will make them bigger.



Here is the view of Trisha’s patio through her patio door. I just think it is such a welcoming view. You just want to walk right out there and sit down.

Tomorrow is story hour again at the Library. Linda will be gone so it will be up to me to pull it off. Wish me luck. I will let you know how it goes tomorrow!

Today mom and I drove up to Omaha to Aunt Patricia’s. keila (mom and Trisha’s cousin, my 2nd cousin) was back here visiting from Oregon. We had a lot of fun visiting and laughing! Keila had some pictures to share and I thought this one of her dog, Maggie was so cute. They had a garage sale and Maggie was doing the advertising for it!!

As I’m typing this I thought, “I should have got a picture with all three of us in it together.” A couple of seconds later I then thought, “H-E-L-L-O, and just who would have taken this picture?!

Oh my God help me! Rusty just informed me, it wouldn’t be 3 of us, it would be 4! Me, mom, Keila and Trisha, yep! That’s 4! I gotta tell ya, I’m scaring myself sometimes!!

Old Cars

For those of you that have old cars just sitting around in your yard, why not at least make them look good! I found these photos on this blog.






If people would just do this maybe they wouldn’t get so many complaints about storing old cars on their properties!
