Been away to long

I want to begin my thanking Quick Quotes for making me get back to this blog.   It needs some work and I hope I am motivated today but I have a feeling that some yard work first and then some creating in the scrap room may take over the blog. 

If you are a fan of QQ or have never heard of them check  out their new blog.   I have taken a few of their classes and love their products.   The canvas is to die for! 

And of course while I am at it I want to share the latest layout in my etsy shop.

On the list of things to do....

Are you a list maker?   I think most females are! There is just this great sense of accomplishment as you check things off each day.   It is a great way to remind  yourself what needs to happen, what not to forget.   Well on the weekly list is to change up the blog.   Looks boring, needs a name change and more.

Also on the list for the week is a couple of new apps.   I am looking at free one's if possible and I want a Lose it one and a running one.   If you could find one that will make my knees not hurt when I run I would prefer that please. 

I have to admit though this morning I heard the birds singing, saw the sun rise and enjoyed the cool air.  Putting in some miles each morning is a great way to start the day.

So if you have an app suggestion leave it in the comments.

I'm Back....

It is so time to get back into this blog thing.   I cleaned up the look of my blog.  I still have more plans for it. Need a few photos.

I have a plan of such, a plan that I will  post at least 5 days a week each day with some random topic but it must be always uplifting.   Yes a positive spin on life.  Inspirational!   I love life so that seems only right.   I want to  post about gardening, food, embracing fifty, scrapbooks and cards, party planning,getting fit and loosing weight, and travel.   Not a bad start I would say so if anyone starts to read my blog again after the neglect it has taken please post a comment.  

Looking forward to this.

And now to share a little something this is a very old photo of my dd and middle son.   I used the "Little Boy" kit from Echo Park found here:

Road Trip Monday

Yep we finally got away for a little road trip up north.   We drove up on the rim to see just a few trees with golden leaves.   Then we drove back to Payson and had a picnic and looked at some wood working equipment.   I will post photos tomorrow.

It's Sunday

I love Sundays.   Some Sundays are filled with meetings.   Most Sunday's are quiet.   Sunday's means family time whether it here in our home or on the phone.   Things have certainly changed from years ago when teaching kids about church, reverence, and more.

Sunday's also mean Sunday dinner here.   Today ribs, rice, and salad were on the menu.

Sunday's means lots of church.

Sunday's means looking at the week to see what is in store.

Five Friday Fun Facts Again

The grass story continues and here it is.   I found it funny that some of the seed on top of the sprinkler head had grown.   The grass has really come in nicely and fast this year.   A lot of water, a lot of sunshine, and a whole bunch of stinkin manure and you have winter lawn.

Back to the Friday topic though.   5 Facts about me.

1.  I lived in the same house all of my childhood.
2.  We (friends and I) to school almost everyday.   It was about a 1/3 of a mile to school and it was the biggest social hour ever.   We would hunt horny toads on our way home.  In the spring we would pick some of the wildflowers that grew up in the cracks and in the dirt lots that were waiting for houses.
3.  I hate scary movies.   Always have and probably always will.
4.  I love medical mysteries and other mysteries.   It is not a vacation or a get away without at least 2 books.
5.  I am not facing getting older very well.   I still feel like I should be in my mid 30's and just cant understand why I don't look that way either.
