Enough, Already!

Yes, it's beautiful but I'm just so darn sick of snow!
This is what we woke up to this morning. It snowed most of the morning then rained all afternoon.

And this is what I saw tonight just as the clouds cleared a few minutes before the sun set.
That's a mountain covered in snow and highlighted by the setting sun.  You can see it better if it's enlarged.

Mid Week

Kind of a quiet page because it was a quiet week!

I took this from my son's deck tonight.

Another Kylie Pic

Good morning.  The sun is shining but I'm still being lazy and, truth be told, I'm loving it!
I have been going out for walks at night and that feels wonderful.
Monday will be here too soon.
But it's nice knowing that summer vacation is not far behind!

Kylie's Artwork

Kylie loves drawing in my journal and I love having her do it!

I'm in the middle of my April vacation and being very lazy.  I don't know why I have no energy but I'm just going with it for now.  At first I blamed the rainy weather but the sun is shining today and I still feel the same way. 

It's a good thing I have a hair appointment this afternoon to get me out of the house.  And our assignment at Picture Spring is to take a photo into the sun to create flare.  I think I'll take a walk through the Smith Hydro Park to see what's blossoming and snap away.

How do you get yourself out of a lazy mood?

I took this on Thursday from our porch as I was getting ready to leave Florida.

...And a Week Later

I did this page before flying to Florida with my brother to see our mom who has been laid up with a cracked pelvis and dislocated shoulder from a fall.
We found a beautiful assisted-living place for her and got her moved in.  It offers extended nursing care which is what she needs right now.

Fruit Stickers

These fruit stickers were stuck all over my craft desk so I finally decided to use them.  My husband saw what I had done so, when he was making supper last Tuesday, he stuck the one from the green pepper he was chopping up on the page.

Blast from the Past

That rascal Kylie!  She always leaves a little surprise for me.
Do you throw telephone books away?  I hadn't for years but my husband got on my case about the pile I had so I decided to get rid of some.  Before throwing them in the recycling bin, I checked out the oldest one from 1993 and, lo and behold, there was the entry that our kids had when we owned a motel.  They were teenagers and had to have their own line.

The kids eating ice cream and the cones were on a letter from my friend, Anne.  They remind me of when I was little.  I was the oldest of four kids and in the summer we'd rent a cottage at a lake.  I think I remember a picture of us very similar to this.

SkyWatch Friday

We had the most amazing blue sky today after three days of rain.
I just had to go for a walk through the park.
I'm not sure what these puffy buds are but they were so pretty.
