We have wetness..
falling from the sky...
I think it's RAIN....
it's been a while since I've seen it...
but yep that's what it is .....
it's not going to last long...
but the plants are sure happy about it....
the ones that are left anyway...
In the past year we have had so many people...
from the past...pop back into our lives...
it is funny how that works....
and it has been so much fun...
catching up....remembering old times...
starting new adventures...
is there someone from your past...
you would love to find out how they are doing...
to catch up with...these days with the internet...
facebook...my space....it is alot easier...
but every now and then it seems like some
have just fallen off the face of the earth...
I feel foturnate the ones I have been thinking about..
have popped back in....
Smile today...
it makes people wonder what you are up too..

Sunrise..pretty clouds...and Teachers...

the sun is coming up this morning...
the clouds are floating like big cotten balls...
pretty colors...
the one on the left looked like an elephant...
so grabbed my camera...
and it already changed...
My grandson is 2 months old today...
he gets his 1st shots ...
hope all goes well for him...
and his Mommy....
School is back in session....
who was your most memorable teacher?
and why???
Mine was Mrs. Shelton...
she was my 2nd grade teacher...
I was really shy....
but she was so sweet and patient...
she made school fun....
she sent me postcards during summer vacation..
from her family vacation...
My hubbie's favorite teacher was a history teacher...
Mr. Killian...everyone wanted to have him for history...
he made learning fun...he would dress up as the people
from history...he would even wear a Toga...
for the Olympics...he had the Olympic games every year
for his class...he is still at the high school...
working in admissions and keeping track of all the
students...he knows all there names..
and where they should be...
So thank you to all the wonderful Teachers...
that pour their hearts...and souls...
into their students....
you truly can make a differance...
in your students lives....
you maybe their  only ray of sunshine each day....

Tuesday ramblings of a busy woman...

don't these clouds looks so light and airy...
hard to believe they could as hot is it is...
you would think they would just melt right out of the sky...
I was sitting in line at Taco Bell the other night...
this house is right next door...
love the little balconey....
but wouldn't want to look out at a drive through...
can you imagine looking at this all the time...
the house was built after the Taco Bell...
makes you wonder......

finally got to meet my daughters BFF baby girl...
she is a cutie pie...(one week old)
now I have a little girl to love on too...
I'm her adopted grandma...
What song has stuck in your head lately?
mine is "Just a Swingin' " by John Anderson....
I guess because that's what I would love to be doing...

Hey...where did everyone go???

all these birds were eating...
then all of a sudden they all flew away...
all but one lone dove....
I watched it...
it was looking around like...
hey where did everyone go??
then I saw it stop suddenly...
it made eye contact with...
the cat....
then it decided to fly away....
I guess that dove didn't get the message....
The weekend went by too fast...
off to another fast paced week...
hope you all have a great Monday....

Another hot one....

the sun coming up this morning...
as I headed to fix my father in law his breakfast....
it's going to be another hot one today...
looks like a ball of fire...
it will feel like one soon...
I haven't had much time to visit this week...
hope to get caught up with everyone this weekend...
So.....I have a question....if you were a tree...
what tree would you be....and why....
I think I would be a Mimosa...
because I would have lots of pretty pink flowers...
that girls...of all ages would love...
and the butterflies and bees would love me...
and I would smell so good....

Re-evaluate....

going to 2 funerals in one week...
sure makes you stop and think..
kind of assess your life....
you know sometimes you just run through life...
just blowing and going...and you really miss out...
at times like these...you re-evaluate your life...
I want to make more of an effort to enjoy life..
to really live life...not just run through it...
I need to make more time for the important things...
stop and smell the roses kind of things...
spend more time with the people I love...
find people I haven't seen in years...
have more fun...enjoy every day...
not just rush through it and mark off my list
of things to do....enjoy the list....
enjoy the days....before a month has passed...
and I don't know what happened to it...

Middle of the week....

middle of the week...
Mom is still doing great from the surgery...
not even taking pain meds...she said this pain is nothing...
compared to what she has been feeling for over a year...
my sweet friend is struggling so to deal with the loss of her Mom...
please continue the prayers for her....
our other friend has found peace with the loss of his Mom..
she is now pain free..after 12 year battle with MS...
our business is good....our health is good...
our grandson is growing and developing...
our children have become wonderful adults....
what more could you ask for????
Have you had a Aww moment lately??
you know...one that makes you say AWWWW....
I was rocking my grandson and giving him a bottle...
I looked over at hubby..he was watching us...
.and he was smiling...
and I could see the love in his eyes...
I felt an AWWWW in my head...

This, that and the other...

yep...still over 100.....
(I know it's a little fuzzy...even my camera feels dizzy)

took this at my Mom's yesterday....
the heat doesn't seem to be effecting it...
some one was throwing this chair away...
so she snatched it up....
you can't sit in it but it makes a great planter...


 and the heat continues...





my father in laws new friend....
it belongs to the neighbors ...
but spends most of it's time at his house...
it gives him something to worry over...




a cardinal stopped by also....

did I mention...
the heat continues....



even the birds need a little cool off time...

What is your favorite time of day and why???
