Long Time Friends

isn't it nice to have friends from high school
ones that you may not have seen for awhile
but when you do its like you just seem them yesterday
i hadn't met the entire family
so it was nice
the kids were darling
barely said a word
so willing to do whatever i asked
so sweet

thanks for a wonderful day

Let the Rain come Down

it's rained
a lot
grateful for a change in weather
worried about the homes & people who are in danger
seems to be letting up as i type
maybe a little sunshine today

hers a little randomness going on around here

honestly we have the best dogs
we have two, here is one
their sisters
they are mellow
they are big but gentle
this is what they have been doing lately
hanging out inside
where its warm and dry
and apparently sport'n a little hair accessory

brought this back
soldered, it was fun
available here

sitting by the fire
reading & creating

just playing around
thought this was cute for valentines day

been enjoying conversation with this one
she was describing a lady
i wasn't sure who she was talking about
so to give me more of a visual she said
"you know, she had a skirt on like a dog shower"

and talking about the weather, some how mother nature came up
she asked who mother nature was
i wasn't really sure how to describe her so i explained
that when God looks over us, he also looks over our weather
her response
"then i think we should call him father nature"
oh how i love that kid

and created these
"word" tags
available here
tag only

as i rap this post up
yep, it's raining again

be safe
stay warm
and snuggle up with your loved ones

and have an extra egg when ya need it
thats what these guys are
great neighbors

it was so fun to play with them
they were great
had dinner after, together
good times

Happy New Year

What a WoNdErFuL year
its going to be

2009 was super

celebrated birthdays
lost teeth
played softball
learned new things
experienced new things
felt sadness
enjoyed time together

what a wonderful year
looking forward to 2010

awhile ago my friend nancy blogged about "her word"
with much thought put into it, i have found "my word"
it is
in my life i tend to jump from one thing to another
moving on quickly
there are some things i do focus on
being a mother, love it
being a wife, got a great hubby
my family
but for me, me.
i rarely focus on one thing
i am a dreamer.
a huge dreamer.
and i like that
but this year i am going to allow myself to focus.
focus on one dream
focus on one thing
focus on what is missing

even on the little things
like packing to go on a trip
focusing enough to pack in outfits so that when
i get there i don't need to go to the store and buy what i didn't back

its not going to be easy
i already know this
its just not my personality to stay focused
but i am going to try
going to make a vision board today
going to remind myself daily to


thanks nancy for the inspiration to find "my word"
happy new year friends

what's your word?
