My week off, now back to work...

But I did do so much this week, I feel like I have been off a lot longer.
Printed and framed 12 pictures for my soffits....

Read two books.....excellant!

Started collecting Cobalt glassware for my kitchen, had a blast in the antique stores with Jill.

And this is the begginnings of how it will look...still need to pick up some more pieces for the opposite wall, but I am not in a is too much fun to look!

Sat by the pool for a few of the days, spent a day with my daughter, visited friends and family, photographed a great baseball team, and had a family party today with our granddaughters...All in all, a good week!

Our pool project

This was a big project, but love how it turned out.  Lots of digging, leveling, heavy lifting and am SO glad it is finished.

And we found we had an unexpected family on our birdhouse:

Mothers' day

A few shots of what mothers'day brought:

Lilac bush grown from a cutting from my Moms' tree blossomed for the FIRST time, it took about 5 or 6 years, what a welcome sight in my back yard.

 And the other plants were blossomimg as well, an iris (once again grown from a cutting at my Moms') and the other plants in my garden....

And then there were gifts....

A beautiful rock candle.

And my Abby knows me well, a wine glass :)

Solar lights for around the pool!  Yay!

 Gorgeous flowers

A great family day, I am a very lucky mother indeed.

A Whole New Appreciation For:

Hip-Hop Dancers.  I had the opportunity to spend the day last weekend with the CMU Hip Hop team's workshop, along with two of my friends from highschool, and it was amazing.  Dancing from 12-5 is EXHAUSTING!  Harder than any workout, in my opinion.  Excellant time, lots if laughter,  and I would do it again in a minute. Thanks CMU girls!

Inside looking out

Oh, my poor babies want to go outside, it is so nice, kind of like spring with no flowers. I guess I have to charge up the Sansa and take them each for a walk. They have been SO good. And yes, they are a little spoiled.

A New Year

A time for reflection, plans, and hope for the future. And looking back at accomplishments and what still needs to be done....As I sit here listening to the midnight fireworks go off, I realize how blessed we are and am very thankful. Plans for this year? Stay focused, and remember to have fun. This year it is also all about the laughs with my family.....
As I look back I am proud of the fact that I stuck with about 80% of the plan, and I can live with that. And what a difference it has made.

One of the things: To Commitment.

Happy new Year to all and also many blessings.
