~ right now~
  •  thankful for a new day.....kinda like a clean slate :)
  • rejoicing in a few quiet minutes.....the men are off to work and a few are still sleeping
  • no gardening or sewing today.....what will I do with all my spare time ?
  • lovin' the cool temps (50's ) this morning.
  • thinking I may find time to practice my guitar.
  • wondering how we have managed to hang onto a flu bug and some pneumonia since mid-April.
  • hoping my children will feel better today.
  • my third oldest is in driver's ed......can you believe it?
  • enjoying all the fresh produce.....including blueberries from a nearby farm :)
  • trying to grasp the fact that I have two sons in their 20's already!!!
  • hoping we will all be well by July 4th.
  • just trying to figure out what it is that I need to do the worst today :)
  • hoping I can be the wife and mother that I need to be right now!

Thank you for taking the time to stop by today......Although nothing real exciting and extraordinary is going on, we're managing to stay busy around here but it's a very good kinda busy!!!  Take care and have a great rest of the week!

~Blessed~
As I look back on our weekend, I am feeling so blessed.  On Saturday, I was able to spend the day with "Ivan", working on his house, getting it ready to move into (pictures coming soon).  It's coming along quite well and I have to brag on him a little.... he is doing an excellent job with the remodeling...ideas, paint colors, and the plain ol' hard work that  goes along with such a project :)

Then on Sunday we spent the day with my side of the family.  "Happy Father's Day" to some very special men in my life !!!  Thanks for everything you do for us :)


  Thanks for stopping by.....have yourselves a wonderful week :)

~ CONGRATULATIONS !!! ~
My niece Allison graduated from Weddington High School on Saturday!  It was a beautiful event.  With 300+ students in her graduating class, the crowd was HUGE.  We love you and are so proud of you, Allison!   Good luck as you head to "University of South Carolina" this fall!!!

~ Owl Release ~
So many of you have asked about the baby owl that we rescued several weeks ago.  He was well cared for by the "Carolina Raptor Center" until he was old enough to fly and take care of himself.  We released him back into the wild yesterday.   Hope you enjoy the video!
