10.8.365: My favorite color is teal.

If you’ve been in my house, you might already know my favorite color.

I can’t help but buy everything I see in it.  And, when I can’t find something in the right shade, I’ll paint it to match. I’m so predictable.

Also? My cat is an attention whore.

10.7.365: Something Funny.

It’s a dumb saying between a group of my friends, but it makes me smile every time I see it on the back of my car.


Someday it won’t make me laugh anymore… but not yet… maybe never!

10.6.365: Books for the Oldest Kid

She’s been bugging me about wanting to read my books. So I sorted through them and found her a stack that are not entirely inappropriate or way beyond her comprehension level. I think these qualify but I’m not sure. I guess that means I’ll have to do a quick re-read of them to make sure.

Oh darn.

10.4.365: Leaves

Have I mentioned that I am extremely grateful for my house? I am. But, why am I grateful for this particular house?

Partly because of this bit of stained glass in my front door. When I walked through the big, slightly overgrown garden to look at the tiny cottage house I now call home, the first thing I spotted was this bit of glass. Normally I’m not a big fan of stained glass or roses but it immediately reminded me of one of my favorite books. This was my rose cottage where I could grow into whatever I was supposed to be from now on. That’s how I knew magic could happen here.

I wasn’t wrong.

10.1.365: I’m grateful for my coffee.

Day one of the gratitude photo project told me to find my favorite food and be grateful for it. I have lots of favorite foods, but do you know what I’m most grateful for? Coffee.

Every. Single. Day. In my world, coffee is it’s own food group.

But I am especially grateful for coffee that comes courtesy of a wonderful friend’s housewarming gift. So, the score is: I’m grateful for coffee and I’m grateful for Deena Mae. Yep. That about covers it.

My doctor was proud of me today for gaining four pounds since my last visit. Don’t tell him how I did it…

4.4.365: Someone that makes you happy

Sure I could post pictures of my kids. They make me happy. But hey! Who wants to see more pictures of my awesome friends who climb mountains with me?

Me too!! I swear I am not the only one sweating here. I’m just the only one sweating through my clothes. Ha!

3.28.365: Fresh Bruises

Softball is a dangerous past time, especially when your pitcher thinks it’s easier to hit you when you’re running to first base than to throw the ball all the way to the first baseman.

Boys are dumb.
