Ooola Earrings

Some earrings that I made for one of the girls at work. For some reason - beading is more of a challenge to me than any of the other things I do - so I tend to stick with simple things. I need Amy around to bead with - maybe that would help.

Game Day - and I'm not there.

The cup of the day has more to do with Jake having a baseball game than it does with matching my clothes -Although it does match my baseball bracelet. I was running a little late this morning - So when Richard handed me this cup - I was out the door with a hot cup of coffee. Now I am waiting to hear how Jake's team did.

Jacob always seems to find something to buy at Target - that seems unnecessary at the time - but then turns out to be a great idea. His latest purchase was this $25 hammock. It is nothing fancy - but so relaxing and comfortable. It is the perfect place to take a nap.

Cup of the Day

My family tells me I am OCD - which may be true. One of the things that makes them say this about me (and there is more than one thing) - is that I have a thing about matching. Each day my coffee cup somehow has to coordinate with the outfit that I am wearing that day. (It honestly bothers me if it doesn't.) Richard and the boys think this is weird of course - although Richard does go along with it - by picking out a cup for me on days I am running late. (He would probably deny that.) So this is the cup of the day.
We took Sadie out for a ride.
She obviously was enjoying the day. You have to love those ears!

Trying a Different Color

I dyed my hair a couple weeks ago. I have always wanted to try red hair - but I had gotten so blonde - that Nancy told me if I dyed it red it would probably turn pink. So she dyed it brown with the idea in mind that I could always put highlights back in it if I didn't like it - and if I still wanted to I could go red next time. It turned out sort of red anyway. Not quite the color I was thinking - and it took a little getting used to - but I like it. What I don't like is all the gray as it grows out - but I have to live with that.

The 80's and Togas

This past weekend was a weekend of parties for Jake and KC. Friday night they dressed up for and 80's party. Jake called be after work wondering what he could wear - not much notice - but he doesn't look too bad. His shorts probably could have been shorter.
Saturday they went to a toga party. It was fun getting them ready for this one.
I think they look more Hawaiian. Maybe should have attended a Luau instead.

Birthday Blossoms for Gwen

g I decorated this tin can for my friend Gwen's birthday. What a fun & easy project. I will have to make some more of these. I originally saw them made up for May Baskets. I haven't made May baskets in years - this may have to be a project for this weekend.
