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.
