Okay, do not say I look like my mom, cuz if you saw my dad (passed) then you would definately know that I have his genes. :)
My mother had 6 kids (literally one after the other almost) She has had a rough life, I think. But, she has such a good outlook on it and that amazes me.
I would have never been able to put up with a fraction of what she did.
Here is my sister, Angela. She is 3 years younger than I. But thanks to my botox and other vanity treatments, people think I am the younger one >SMIRK:)
The little boy is my youngest brothers kid. Lil Dave. He was partially raised by mom and that means he is spoiled. I think as she got older she just gave up. LOL
I for one did not get spoiled. I was the Quiet one, my mom says. Now, that does not mean I was the good one though...LMAO Oh and I am in the black hat and ripped jeans if you could not tell. No makeup and I do not even think I combed my hair that day...Lol

Well, other news in my world: We wrote a contract for that property we looked at a couple weeks ago. I love the location (only 15 minutes from a huge shopping complex, that has absolutely everything--including Michaels :) We offered quite a bit less than the asking, so I am nervous about it. You see, I just raised the bar on my property search because of this location.
All the other properties were so far out...now, if I do not get this one, my search will be more difficult. I may need your prayers on this one, ladies.
The home needs quite a bit of remodeling, but it is livable. That is very important to me, since I will need to sell my home and move into this one while I remodel. It is huge, 3700 square feet, above ground, and the option to finish a walk out basement. Like I need more square footage in the basement, right? It does have 4 bedrooms, so that is awesome..I could have 2 quest rooms now, so I can accomodate more peeps:) Anyway, I do not want to jinks it by talking about it too much. I will keep you posted!

We hiked around and climbed some rock formations. After that we went to the Cave of the Winds. It was a long day and we were all pretty tired afterward.
I am ready to take them to the airport and a bit relieved, I guess I am an intravert, cuz I just want to be alone for a change. Everyone talking over each other for 4 days is enough for me.

We hope you take a moment to reflect on all that your fellow man has done for your freedom and be grateful for everything that they have given up, for you.
May god bless and keep those who are serving our country.
We hope you enjoy your holiday with your family & friends and if you are missing someone, that you are comforted.

The night before, I was a little irritated at Simon's comments and was afraid that little David would win. (No disrespect, he is a sweetheart, I am sure. )
I just have been a fan of Cook's since almost Day one. (or at least till I heard him sing Billy Jean.) I have downloaded all of his songs and now I am a huge fan. I love the rocker, but honestly my favorite song is "Music of the Night." LOOOOVE IIT! Gosh, I bet he is totally overwhelmed with all the girls just swooning about him. LMAO. "Be careful what you wish for." :) I hope he keeps a good head on his shoulders. He seems like a really nice guy. Here's to your future, David. Cheers!

That is what happens when I have too much going on. I get over loaded and just don't want to do anything! I had my last adobe photoshop class, today. I got a lot out of that class. Now all I need to do is upgrade mine to CS3.
My blogs have been really short, lately. Maybe next week my life will feel more boring and I can waist it writting more about useless banter. I miss emailing my friends, but I know I got too much to do, so that will have to wait! I hope everyone is getting ready for a gorgeous holiday weekend.

It is days like this, I wish I have a pool in my back yard. It is too much maintenance for only 6 months out of the year, if that. Still it would be incredible. I doubt I would get anything done during the summer, though. I'd be outside most of the time.

I had to plant more moss between the stone because honey ruined a bunch when he shovelled a walk in the winter.
Hopefully, they will grow just as quickly as they did last year. Don't you just love this cabana area? I love to hang out there and turn the fan and speakers on. Listen to jazz and drink cocktails (not much cocktails for me anymore) We built a tall fence so we did not have to entertain the neighborhood.
It was really warm, today. A bit windy at times, but very nice otherwise.
There still so much to do around the house. I really need to spring clean (like inside the fridge) I dred that kind of work and honestly my mom is not a neat person at all, so I could wait, but this is a good excuse for me to actually do it.
She gets here Thursday afternoon. I still have not figured out all that we will do that weekend. Since it is Memorial weekend, it will be packed about any place we go. Museum on Friday. My anniversary is on Saturday (i gotta remember to blog my wedding photo for you all) and then the Mountains on Sunday. I was originally going to plan a weekend get away for our anniversary, but I am glad I didn't. We'll probably just do a spa day for ourselves next week after she leaves. We both love getting massages. Who doesn't, right?

A few of them were making all kinds of sounds. I felt bad for them. They shaved a 750 pound llama. I have pitcures of that, but I cannot share all of them cuz it would take up pages and pages of my blog...Anyway, the llama's fleece was litterally a huge rug when it came off! WOW.

I think I finally got to sleep about 4 am and even then it was not quality. I dreamt that I was taking care of a hug snail like it was a cat. What the *^%##@?
So, I am really groggy today, but I gotta get some things done, so no sleeping for me!

So, doll making is gonna have to wait! My mom is coming to visit in a couple of weeks. He grandson, David, ws so upset (she takes care of them) that he wasn't going to come, so I am going to surprise him and get him a ticket too! Let's just hope his Dad says it is okay. It will be their first time coming to Colorado, so they should be very excited. So, before they come I gotta get my garden finished and get this house cleaned! LOL

Oh, I am loving my new camera. It is so sweet. I had no idea. My last camera, in comparison, was a piece of crap! Lol Of course this is almost three times the cost, but it is totally worth it. No more procrastinating on going to the botanic gardens. It's gonna be a blast. Although, I should probably try to figure out how to use it. It looks so complicated!
Shadow likes it better too cuz it takes a picture so fast. She doesn't have time to do anything about it! lol Mommy is a happy camper today, that is for sure.

I love this picture. The original is nice, but I have manipulated it in Photoshop and it looks even better. I really like doing that to my photo's. People cannot tell if they are prints of artwork or a picture. Mysterious.
It is so nice out today. Sunny and warm. I should spend some time outside, but nope got to many details to finish inside. I do hope the weekend is this great. We got lots to do in our backyard. It will be so nice to have that all done. I feel like I keep saying that..LMAO. Oh, well.

My camera is officially BROKEN.
That is on my list of things to do this weekend. Plus, work on the back yard. It looks pretty sad right now.
I totally missed my crochet class last night! What the heck?!
I may just have to sign up for the next class this summer sometime. Well, at least it is summer and I have plenty of time to make that hat and scarf set, right? This is when I feel that saying from my name in an earlier post is right (At times, you can be a little flaky and irresponsible.) Crap, I was hoping I was mature enough to get past that part! LMAO. It was just not my day, yesterday. I hope it is better, today!

You are Elizabeth Bennet of Pride & Prejudice! You are intelligent, witty, and tremendously attractive. You have a good head on your shoulders, and oftentimes find yourself the lone beacon of reason in a sea of ridiculousness. You take great pleasure in many things. You are proficient in nearly all of them, though you will never own it. Lest you seem too perfect, you have a tendency toward prejudgement that serves you very ill indeed.
To take the quiz click here.
She still has not figured out the dog door. I guess that is a good thing. So, I don't have to shut it at night. You should see her get upset when the dog goes thru it. I think she is jealous! Sometimes, she won't let Gin back in. Funny.
I think my dog is going deaf. I came home yesterday and was able to walk right up to her and she was so startled that I was right there. She usually can hear me coming. So, much for security....she'd sleep right thru anything.
Well, I think it is time to get to work. Have a fun day, today, everyone!

So, my beautiful crabapple trees lost all there pink flowers from that freak snow the other day. Dang it!
It is about time to plant new moss in the courtyard and start getting my potted flowers out there. It is so pretty out on our cabanna in the summer. I cannot wait.

Boy, this yarn was not cheap, by any means. The Alpaca were so sweet. There was a little cria boy who just wanted to cuddle with me...very neat. Now I smell like alpaca. I wish I would have brought my camera, today.
We'll I am off to work on a doll. Have a great weekend!
