U is for Umbrella

Friday, October 9, 2015

I have been stumped with something for the letter U but decided to share a couple of photos I took at the Belliago in Las Vegas and the Atrium decorated for Spring.

T is for Time

Saturday, October 3, 2015

That precious thing we often take for granted
I mean how did it get to be October already?
This month baby girl will turn 6 months old and we will celebrate her 85th birthday with my Mom!
We are so blessed but so often we don't take the time to appreciate all we have.  I am as guilty of this as the next person.  Rushing from one thing to another.
Time to take a moment and reflect on where you are in your life.  Where you want to go and what you want to make sure you don't miss while getting there.  
Time to take care of me and not just everyone around me.  It is something I need to remind myself to do often these days.
Take time to enjoy my home.  The things I love that surround me in my home; books, pottery, photos, memories and my sweet Charlie Kitty.
Time to reflect on life's challenges and also all the rewards.  Time to enjoy the life I'm living.
Time to remember where I've been and 
where I still dream of going!

S is for...

Sunday, September 27, 2015

I am so far behind on everything!!
This will be my last week of babysitting 5 days@wk.  After this it will only be Tue/Thur and the occasional extra day.
I haven't left as many comments and some times I admit I've skimmed blogs but I'm trying.
So here I am doing my S post that was due last Thur...
better late then never.

I have been doing some pocket letters (and yes I'm behind there also) and needed a few extra things so I decided to stop at the Dollar Tree on my way home from Mom's place.  I usually don't find much there but it was on the way so I stopped!

S is for Score!
First of all I saw this rack of decorative tape and couldn't believe how cute they were for $1 each
 Then I found stickers
So many cute 3 dimensional sticker packs
 Bakers twine in 3 colors and multi colored paper clips.   What a great deal.  I need to check the Dollar Tree more often.

R is for Rosemary

Friday, September 18, 2015

Rosemary Scout is a 5 months old! 
Trying to get a picture of this wiggle worm is so hard as she is always on the move (close to crawling also).
Unless she is asleep in Grandma's arms! 
She loves her swing!
and her big brother!

Q is for Quiet

Friday, September 11, 2015

I have come to really enjoy some quiet time
The beach has always been a calming influence in my life.  I can sit and watch the water and think with only the sounds of the wind and the ocean as my companions.
The Majesty and beauty of the mountains inspires awe in me.  The quiet is so powerful.
When it first snows, the quiet surrounds you like the earth is standing still while covered in a blanket of white.
Nature is amazing and butterflies in all their beauty make me stop and look at my world without the hustle and bustle 
Listen to the Quiet
