Oh, Minnesota...

I saw this photo on Facebook and had to save it. It tells the whole story! (The caption said something like "Two weeks of weather in Minnesota". It's true!

We're greening up! Yahoo! And here's a little proof of spring I brought home from my walk the other day.

And a couple of glamor shots taken by Micah's photographer friend Flo (who is also married to Micah's taekwondo instructor, Nick Bretz). Micah's girls were playing with Flo's little boy, Dominick, so they weren't all perfectly coifed, but I thought these were good.

We're babysittin' tonight! Woo hoo! Lots of giggles! :)
That's all for now. I spend way too much time on my art blog, so I have to say "Whoa!" sometime!

A Good Mama's Day weekend...

We celebrated Mother's Day a day early by dining at the local Mexican restaurant which opens each year on Mother's Day weekend. My oldest step-son from Colorado paid the tab and we all made sure we had a Mud Ball for desert! There were many nice greetings on Facebook and sons Josh and Jordan called to visit on Sunday evening.

Today the Mother's Day fun continued with a package from Josh and Jess in Kentucky. Enclosed I found this nice handmade card...

Josh has always felt that handmade cards are best. I'm pretty sure that Jess made the outside and Josh wrote the greeting on the inside, which makes it very special to this mom!

There was also a great picture of grandkiddos, Nathan and Starry aka Ellie (short for Danielle).

This one I copied from Facebook...

Looks like these kiddos are becoming countrified!

Another great Mother's Day gift was a copy of The Hobbit from Dad Glenn! Thanks, Glenn!

I wonder if Audrey would like to watch this with me. She's coming over on Saturday. Hmmm... Excited to see it!

Time to get outdoors and take a walk. Blessings to all y'all who stop by!

Come, Lord Jesus!

That's what Bob says when the skies do this...

I'm resurrecting my exercise blog:

This picture was actually taken a few years back. Probably further back than I think! Anyway, getting back into walking and maybe some jogging. A 5k is a possibility in midsummer and I really want to do the Dick Beardsley 5k in the fall.
The sky photo above was taken as I was returning from today's walk. I just got a few sprinkles, so that was good.
Not a lot happening otherwise. Working a lot, walking, and creating Artist Trading Cards; my newest fad! :)  I talk more about that on my Pen and Ink blog. Oh, and I guess I'm doing some blogging, too.
Y'all have a shalom filled Mother's Day weekend!
