The Inbetween Time

These pictures are for the time I have missed from May 21 to today June 12... These are sorta in order.

My son's 13th Birthday♥ =] Those are all his Star Wars Legos that I used to decorate the cupcakes with...

The winter cover for my pool..

A piece of costume jewelry I got for almost nothing... maybe .50 cents

Free fishing weekend, no license required...

Lake Linville

One of the cards I made for my kids' teachers

My niece's 9th birthday cake

Another craft challenge, a paperbag album. It isn't done though...


I have been AWOL since May 21. Truthfully I just haven't felt like taking a picture and posting it. That's sad isn't it? It ain't like it is a hard thing to do--- I just haven't really wanted to do it. But never fear, I do have some pictures to post and fill in that time period, just gotta do it.... I'm not sure it will be one picture for each day but it will be a group of pictures.

Day 140

Yep, I bought a Britney Spears CD. Thanks to Just Dance 1 and 2 on the Wii, I have had Womanizer stuck in my head. So I decided to pick up the Cd, my kids like the songs too so it's a win-win. =]

Day 139

This isn't the best picture but I didn't have my camera with me. It is a bunch of pink roses that are growing on the side of a county road, there used to be a church here and it was moved up the road just a little distance. I stopped to dig some to transplant at my house and got some for my sister too.

Day 138

I finally broke down and bought some hair dye. It is called sugar brown and is lighter than what my hair has become...well if you don't count the grey! It actually turned out good, covered the grey and doesn't look really much different than my regular color.

Day 137

Today was my birthday and since it was also a no school day, we went to the movies and watched Thor in 3D. It was good, gotta love Marvel movies ;)

Day 136

This is a bottle of Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels that my friend Raquel sent to me. It has mica in it and this one is colored a green but it isn't mixed. The mica settles very fast but when you spray it on a scrap booking item it dries with a lovely sparkle sheen and I love sparkles. =]

Day 135

This is the privet I have planted next to my house to help some with shading since the sun is so intense on this side during the summer. It is in it's flowering stage right now and I think it may be one of my allergy triggers... It has also been moved 3 or 4 times before ending up here, very hardy plant.

Day 134

This is what we did Saturday night, my sister brought her girls over and we spent a few hours dancing. I am far from being a good dancer but I can shake my booty really well and that's about it. LoL Not too good at following the movements though. My kids love to play it and it gets us up and moving so who cares if I look funny doing it? ;)

Day 133

This is what I have been doing during the day, watching Carnivale re-runs on HBOGo on my computer. I was very disappointed that it ended after just 2 seasons and there was no show to tie everything up. But they only care about numbers and ratings not the show itself...

Day 132

I took this yesterday with the intention of posting it but couldn't get in to Blogger to make a post. It was still down earlier today too. Glad to see it up now though. =]

These are some irises that I found in the ditch more than 20 years ago and dug up. I planted them when I was a teenager. When I got married I dug some of those and brought them to my new home too. =]

Day 129

I bought a wireless router today because my new TV is wifi ready. Well they lied cause it will not pick up the signal from the router even though it's only about a foot away. And now my computer/internet is dragging! Getting really pissed about it, I finally just unhooked the router and plugged back into my modem like it was. My Wii is working fine with the router though and the TV does work if I use the ethernet cable but it's still irritating because it is supposed to be wireless.

That being said, it has taken forever for me to get one picture uploaded! This is a picture of a van for sale, and the reason I took the picture is because the people can't spell. It's just a little hard to see it all because of sun glare but it says slavage instead of salvage. If I'm gonna but something on a sign for the word to see I'm gonna make sure I spell it right even if I have to use a dictionary.

Day 127 and 128

Well I didn't get a picture posted on Saturday. I truthfully can't even remember if I took a picture. But I took 2 today so it's all ok. LoL :D The first is of my challenge that was due by Saturday but I wasn't done cause I had to let it dry before I put the crystals on it. The second is of 2 of our Wii controllers and my very beat up satellite remote. Today was Mother's Day and I was reminded of how much I am blessed by the thoughtfulness of my wonderful kids. ♥♥♥♥

Day 126

This is a card I made for my mom for Mother's Day. It is on the small side but hey, I actually got one made this year! And I'll even post a picture of the inside too. =]

Day 125

Well I had a different picture to post today but my camera battery is dead. It shut off after I took the picture and I knew there was no way I would be able to get anything to upload if it was that dead. So this is the hat I helped Isabelle decorate for Derby Day at school tomorrow.

Days 123 and 124

Well I didn't get around to posting yesterday's picture cause I just ain't feeling too perky. Allergies are kicking my butt even though I'm trying stay medicated. And to top it all, it has now passed midnight, my stupid computer is having brain farts or something...??? So it is another 2 for 1 post.

I actually took this picture yesterday with the intention of posting it. It's a little bitty spot of my overgrown yard and the surrounding woods. I love that everything is so green, even though we have had soooo MUCH rain lately.

This is a picture of the flower pen my daughter made at school for Mother's Day for me. Love it.♥

Day 122

This is what came in the mail today. It is the prize my daughter won for a drawing of SpongeBob SquarePants. I had Liked the page on Facebook and saw a post that said they would be giving away this new game and a Wii UDraw tablet the next day starting at a certain time. All you had to do was upload an original drawing of SpongeBob and be one of the first 50 to post. And guess what? Isabelle drew a picture while she was at school and had it among her papers, so I scanned it in and posted. I got a notice the next day say congratulations on winning. So woohoo i send my info in and it came today. To be perfectly honest, I was a bit skeptical about it until the UPS man pulled in today... LoL. The kids are so happy about it though.

Day 121

Today my daughter spent a lot of time coloring this little home for her toys. =] She was so proud that she wanted me to take a picture of it. I love her imagination!

Day 120

My son went fishing Saturday with my niece and they caught some BIG fish. I didn't post this yesterday because I was too tired. Not really an excuse but there it is, LoL.

Friday, April 29, 2011

Day 119

This is another picture of my mailbox. Yes those are cobwebs and spider nests in there. We rarely ever get mail in our box, I have a PO box for mail, but I wanted to put one up.

Thursday, April 28, 2011

Day 118

I snapped this picture with my cell phone. My dad has been talking about getting another truck but I truthfully don't think he would buy it. I just took it anyway.

Wednesday, April 27, 2011

Day 117

The clock has just struck midnight so it is actually the next day but.... LoL =] We have had more severe weather today and tonight but it looks as though it has moved on now.

This is another picture of my baby Popcorn, as you can see he was laying there with his tongue stuck out while he dozed off. ♥ I just gave him a haircut a few days ago.

Tuesday, April 26, 2011

Day 116

Another challenge done and early too! LoL =] It was a tile challenge, but no one in my home uses coasters so I decided to do something decorative. I got the clipart and letter T from The Graphics Fairy and made it up in photoshop then added a bow.

Monday, April 25, 2011

Day 115

This is a pyramid I helped Isabelle make for extra credit. Her class is learning about geometric shapes, she is in first grade. I let her pick out the paper she wanted to use and I found a pattern online. She glued all the edges and we folded it up. =]

Day 114

Happy Easter and a Happy Birthday to my niece Candice. Today was her 4th birthday. Here are a few of the eggs we colored, we did 4 dozen. =]

Saturday, April 23, 2011

Day 113

We colored eggs this evening and I've got a bunch of pictures of that but I haven't downloaded to my pc yet. Soooo, I decided to show you another craft challenge. It was to make something with an Easter theme and pastel. This is as pastel as I get though. ;)

Friday, April 22, 2011

Day 112

I know that today is Good Friday and Earth day but no picture that relates to either of those. This billboard fascinated my kids when it was first put up. It still makes you look twice. LoL They wanted to know how that car got up there.

Thursday, April 21, 2011

Day 111

Another craft challenge done =] It is a mini album and had to be embellished on the cover, not sure what I'll do with it but I finished before the deadline! LoL =D

Wednesday, April 20, 2011

Day 110

This is our driveway. I am so glad to see the leaves coming out on the trees! I love the green of summer. =]

Tuesday, April 19, 2011

Day 109

This is taken from inside my kitchen. See those brown spots? They are some sort of beetle type bug and there are hundreds of them all over my house. I'm guessing they are drawn there by the warmth of the metal roof. They sound like popcorn and it's just a little creepy o.O

Monday, April 18, 2011

Day 108

Who doesn't remember blowing the fluff off these as a kid? They would grow in big clumps in the field next to my grandparents' house and I remember running through them making the fluff float in the air. Now my kids blow on them. =] And that is a lady bug crawling around in it.

Sunday, April 17, 2011

Day 107

See that 'cankle'? That is my fat ankle/calf. And all that stuff on it is lotion for poison ivy. I have it on both feet and ankles, and it is itching so bad! This is the worst I've had it in a long time. I want to scratch so bad!

Saturday, April 16, 2011

Day 106

This is the skull of some animal that died under the floor of my grandparents' house. My dad found it when they pulled up the floors, not sure what type of animal it is.

Day 105

Well another day that I didn't post a picture. This should have been done yesterday but I didn't take any pictures and was just plain lazy about it! So today I took 2. This is a litter of kittens at my parents' house. Actually it is inside my grandparents' house that my dad is remodeling. She had them under the kitchen sink =] There are 4 solid black ones and one striped.

Thursday, April 14, 2011

Day 104

This isn't the best picture of one of the dogwood trees around my yard but my battery died and this is all there is. LoL I have always loved the legend of the dogwood.

Wednesday, April 13, 2011

Day 103

This is what my son wants for his birthday, well one of them. There is another pack and they are wearing blue. He says he wants them both so they can do battle. LoL =] I took pictures so my sisters can each get him one, they aren't priced too high and he for sure likes it.

Tuesday, April 12, 2011

Day 102

This is the final book in a series I began reading back in the late 90s. I actually own the first 2 books in the set but was never able to find this last one. Thankful that I found this at the library though =] Not our county library cause it sucks big time but a neighboring county library.

Day 101

Well another day late... this is what I was doing last night. I made this and hung it up on the bathroom mirror for my kids. They always want to rush through this and I want them to take good care of their teeth so I bought a digital timer to help.

Sunday, April 10, 2011

Day 100

See that big mass of bugs? Those are lady bugs or beetles. This is from my niece's bedroom. The damn bugs are everywhere. About 15 years ago they were released to help with aphid control but now they are trying to get rid of these bugs. These were all inside the light bulb in a huge mass, dried to the light. It's a wonder they didn't start a fire!
