nice anyway.

(not my page, but I want to be there)!

OK~I'm sitting here thinking...
this summer is speeding by.
I have not been to the beach yet,
and that was my #1 priority.
It seems like everything I want to do
is taking a backseat to what I have to do.
Being a responsible adult isn't all it's cracked
up to be. I just want to run (that's a joke with
my bad knees) and be the freespirit that I
always was. My wings are clipped...when did this

the strong silent type!

shadow dancing

a walk through my back yard

It's been weeks since I wandered
through my backyard to see all
the beauty around me. I was pleasantly
surprised by the myrtle that bloomed
on the side of the house.
Since I don't get away enough for vacation,
I take a trip outside, watch the butterflies
flutter, listen to the birds sing and quietly
ponder all that God has created for us to enjoy.
"take time to smell the flowers"

a work in progress

I found this plain little bag at a thrift store along time ago and have been adding beads to it for years. The fringe used to go all across the bottom, but it caught on something and came loose...I may continue to work on it from time to time. All these post & pictures are my way keeping track of the things I do, sort of like a diary, so if anyone reads this, great, if not, that's ok too! Hello to myself! :)

Jesus Christ Superstar!

The Broward Center for
the Performing Arts.

WOW! What a show we saw tonight.
The music, set, actors...everything
was amazing. (Couldn't take pictures
inside so I took a few of the plants outside.)
We were deeply moved by story of course,
but the passion and realism of it was...breathtaking.


Finished the daisy chain the same day I started,
just forgot to here it is...whooppeee!

beadin' my life away...

The early bird gets the...beads!
Up at 4:00am, for no reason,
so I sat down to make this cha cha
bracelet that has been in my
head for some time now. It took most
of the morning, in between making
coffee, breakfast & reading the paper,
but it was worth it. Greens & blues,
like the ocean. I've made a couple of
pink bracelets in the past, so the next
will be purple or maybe coral & sand.
Cha Cha Cha :)

Who's your Daddy (?)

Hey, he's not my father...that comment has been a joke
between Rico & I forever! Of course, on Mother's Day,
he says the same to me.
But seriously, I do wish him and all the other men,
who take care of their families, a very happy, restful,
peaceful and carefree day.


3-D Album Cover

Just got this new 3 ring binder in red corduroy
at the Paper Niche and couldn't decide on a picture
to put in the opening and then I remembered we
made this cute tag at Jane's Stampin' Up gathering
on Wednesday and it was the perfect fit!
I may have to put a little piece of paper behind it
to cover the white, but I think it looks great.

these are a few of my favorite things...

flower power

Working on a project...a blast from the past!
I used to make these flower beads when I was
a teenager using Indian beads. They were a mix
of colors with irregular shapes. With more of a
selection of colors and styles now, I use seed
beads, size 11, very small. You can make a necklace,
bracelet or ring. It's very relaxing working with a
needle and thread for beading. This as far as I got
between laundry (see below) and household stuff.
I may finish it today (or not) and I'll post a picture
of the finished product...whenever.

sign of the times

Sign, sign, everywhere a sign.
Blockin' out the scenery, breakin' my mind.
Do this, don't do that, can't you read the sign?

a man may work from sun to sun...

but woman's work is NEVER done!

the weather started getting rough...

the tiny ship was tossed...
not really, but inside was hot, hot, hot!
The three level boat was beautiful, but
jammed with a couple hundred politicians...
need I say more?

Graduation Day & Family

Sunday, June 1st, 2008...
graduation day from South Plantation High School.
Our last child, hitting another milestone.
We are so proud of him. :)
And we are also proud of our five daughters and all they have accomplished in their lives. They are wonderful women, sisters, mothers, wives, and talented people, each in their own way. Our ten grandchildren have a great start in life with these girls and our son-in-laws and future son-in-laws. Our job as parents continues, forever, and is always a learning experience. We get better at it every year, especially when they are not living with us!
Love to all my family and to Dominic, blessing on the next stage of your life.
