Laundry piles BEWARE!

You seriously can't do any kind of laundry without the cats claiming piles as their napping places. Athena decided this was her pile of clothes on Sunday. Thankfully they had not been washed yet.

Anniversary Flowers

The hubby gave me flowers for our anniversary. As well as Mexican food for lunch and a box of donuts. I was thrilled! He knows me too well...

Weekly Words Challenge


Pure Cane Sugar

100% Pure U.S. Grade A Clover Honey

I had a really hard time with this one. There is nothing that I regret. If I had to go back and do it all over again, I would make the exact same choices. If I changed even one thing, I may not be where I am now. And right here is exactly where I want to be. So, no regrets for me.
Thus I give you... nothing.

My best friend from high school, Amanda, graduated today. She received her master's in social work. I was really glad I got to be there for the hooding ceremony.

Here's Amanda and her husband, Jeremy.

And Amanda and I.

Congrats Manda! Woohoo - No more school!!

Fun with Gimp

I took this photo and put some texture on it as well as vignetting in Gimp. I think it looks pretty cool.

Weekly Words Challenge


This one's a bit of a stretch, but I was running out of time...

My favorite hamburger has seven key ingredients:
1) ground beef
2) marinated in worcestershire sauce and
3) ranchers steak rub (which includes salt, pepper, garlic, and other herbs/spices)
4) the bun
5) ketchup
6) mustard
7) and dill pickle slices

And the side of my mother's potato salad is just the icing on the cake.


We have a sand pit in the back yard where the previous owners removed their above-ground pool.

I got some shots of Stella and Eric playing in the yard the other day. It's hard to keep her in focus 'cause she runs so much!

Weekly Words Challenge


This is one of my favorite things to have for lunch. It only takes three minutes to make and is zero points.


We went to the Renaissance Festival this past weekend and saw Johnny Phoenix. He does a fire-eating skit. This amazes me as I am hesitant to go near any kind of open flame. But then again, I am a wuss like that...
