"Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion; it
is not the expression of personality, but an escape from personality. But, of
course, only those who have personality and emotions know what it means to want
to escape from these things." ~T. S. Eliot

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you
did, but people will NEVER forget how you make them feel ~ Maya Angelou

I've always been drawn to things that display class, glamour, and beauty

She Had A Surprise

Today was like any day, but when the bus came to drop Ryleigh back off, she was actually awake and bounced off the bus with a smile and came running and saying " I have a surprise, I have a surprise!" I asked her what it was and she motioned to her backpack to let me know it was in there. When we got into the house we sat down and opened up her backpack and she pulled out this plastic pig..She loves pig's and they have to be Pink but she grabbed him and said "My surprise!" I kinda chuckled cause it was funny but I got excited with her then I read her book as I always do to see what they did that day and she had a note in her binder..Here is what it said and also a picture of the Surprise Pig!

I was so proud of her!

My Girls Pig...


When he was a little boy he was always with his grandpa or PA as we all call him, this week he spent alot of time with his Pa and Grandma..they came up the other day and we sat in the sun for the first time this year and Josh loves the grill so he put some burgers on the grill and did his thing..Pa watching him like he use to when he was a little boy. He loves all his grandparents and I think that is a special bond that any child can have growing up. They tell stories, they don't judge because all they can do is LOVE their grandchild in their own special way. Grandparent are special and if you talk to Josh and ask him what his memories are full of it's the time he spent with his Pa, going with him in the van, picking up sticks before they mowed the lawns, planting flowers with him and sitting on his lap as he read to him.
Here are a few photos I did manage to get while they were at the grill and he leave Saturday and it's breaking my heart because I miss him already! I am so proud of my son for who he has become, how he has learned values, morals and love from being loved by his grandparents and parents who never gave up on him. Even though he dosen't sit on his lap these days he does spend time with his pa and grandma, they talk about all different things, they play cards, and believe it or not they still work in the yard together when Josh is home..

I wish I had a camera

Ok..yesterday was a very eventful day. I lost a little of my pride and just a little bit embarrassed about the whole thing but I got up brushed myself off and took myself home...
When we were kids we use to travel alot with my parents in the summer months and this particular summer we were in Ohio and that is where my oldest brother lives. I was about 11 or 12 and we had pulled the camper in his driveway and they plugged in so we could have electricity and all well it was getting late so Tami and I decided to go out to the camper and head to bed..when I picked my barefoot up to step on the step it ZAPPED ME AND I FLEW TO THE GROUND LIKE A FLYING ROCKET! SERIOUSLY. As I layed there trying to figure out what just happened my sister is over me thinking I was seriously hurt or even dead but I keep saying I'm OK and sat up and asked "what just happened?" Tami said "you just flew to the ground, are you OK, between tears, are you hurt?" That was the first time I believe I knew my sister loved me for me!!
Well yesterday even though it wasn't a Zap it was a FACE TO THE GROUND FALL, YEP I laid flat out on the cement at my parents house and just laid there because again I said "What just happened!!!" As I laid there Tami again is over me *giggling* asking if I was OK..then the laughter came and all you older woman know when you start *giggling* we know what happens with the bladder, I could stop laughing then my MOM comes out and ask "What are you doing down there?" just like that is where I wanted to be at the moment and we busted out laughing and laughing and as I got up, and as you know older woman, it not easy, I just ripped one that I think my mother was embarrassed to here...sorry but OMG!!! As we sat there in laughter my whole body was just frozen, not knowing what was next and then Tami had to stop because she was feeling it to..I think we laughed for a good 20 minutes before I really got up and walked to the truck to go home with my hurt pride and my embarrassment..

I wanted to share this because if you can't laugh at yourself and look at the small stuff and not take everything serious life is full of laughter and that's what makes life more bearable.
I hope you enjoyed in my laughter as I look back this morning I'm still laughing and will be for awhile.

My horoscope today..I usually read it every day just to see what it says and today was

August 23 - September 22
Do not automatically think that beauty always has to be defined by old-fashioned standards, dear Virgo. It is time to set your own definition. There is no need to fit yourself into some socially constructed mold that doesn't resonate with who you truly are. Your job is not to try and make sure that everyone loves you. There is only one person you need to satisfy, and that is yourself.

This is funny cause last week I was talking to a very good friend of mine (Becky) and she said pretty much the same words to me..

Just a little update

So..it's been awhile since I've posted..I've been busy with a few projects of my own lately..We did the photo shoot with Mark and Coco and the waiting of baby Isabella..we had a blast with these two.
Then I've been trying to keep busy and I've been trying to get my Dream Assignment done and edited so hopefully I'll have that up by this afternoon!
Then I've been doing some other projects around the house..been sanding, kiltzing, and pretty soon going to be painting..so you see I've been busy and staying out of trouble...haha

Just a update for my family that reads my blog...thank you very much!!!!
Ryleigh got HER report card on friday and for a 1st grader it's alot of S's E's and V's well as my family knows it is very exciting to see the growth in Ryleigh this year she really has come far and she is reading..yes my little girl is reading!!!! I've got to brag alittle here but she went from a 10% in the first marking period to a big 45% in the second grading period!!! whoohoot!!!!
Her math skills went from a S..satisfactory to a E..Excellent and her comprehension skills are on the rise also it went from a 10% to a 30%...I am just so extactic!

We've been working with Ryleigh on her reading and math and for christmas she got an easel that has a magnetic board on one side and chalk board on the other..and she is actually spelling words with her letters and we're also spending alot of time on writing the lower case letter, she's a little stuck on the upper and lower case letter..but I've got hope will accomplish this goal before summer!!!

Summer, omg it's just around the corner and I'm not sure about you but this cold weather is getting on my nerves!!! I'm ready for some warmer weather so we can get back outside again!

We were going to try are hand at growing some vegetables, so I've been wanting to go get a Tomato (several types), Cucumbers, and because Ryleigh loves her brocolli I'm going to try growing some...wish me luck!! Hopefull soon my DH will be getting the greenhouse up so I can grow them in there..

Ok I've got to run now but I'll leave you with a smile and a Big Thank YOu for visiting and reading my blog!!!!
