"48 Hours"...what a wonder!

 Apples and Oranges....Apple of my eye....Orange County (Disneyland)....An apple a day....This is the block that begins a quilt celebrating my Grandmothers....Excited to share the symbolism as it grows...



Harley's quilt ready for the quilter....Have you heard of Green Fairy's news....Go to her blog so you can CELEBRATE with her!


Love pouring down......I figure the crookedly sewn basket goes with the idea that when we are "off kilter" we need a little extra love!!!!

Noah was dressed for the squall.  The day before he had jumped in twice and this was amazing....when I comented how brave he has gotten with the cold water he remarked, "Skateboarding has changed my life." My little guy is growing up...and I LOVE IT!!!!

What would the lake be without a sweet pup named Savannah...We joke that our boat is named, "Liquid Prozac"....always a giggle and laugh and sometimes pure mayhem!  (Before the squall)

Our own form of "Deadliest Catch Episode"...Jack surfing the squalls on Mother's Day...We soon headed back for double dutch jump roping and bocce in the backyard....

"Hey, batter batter....."  Now I feel like an official mom in a small town....Our first Little League game and what a riot! Noah was so fun about his nerves prior to his game but then was able "to forget the crowd and focus on the ball" as he put it...


WAHOO!!!! Sometimes it is so nice to run home.....Literally and figuratively....

Celebrating....a young man who's car was totalled by a drunk driver but he was safe....Photographing Josie's bronze statue as Sandra email me....My sis enjoying her first date weekend without the kids with her husband (almost 4 years since the last one)....Green Fairy's double big news.....My husband giddy that his Old Fart's Golf weekend is here!....Finding kayak fabric line that reminds me of Penny....An empty envelope that came in my mailbox allowing for creative ideas...Timothy and Raiden home.....All of the goodness that reminds me that when I am ornery and sad and cheeks are tear stained...that "this too shall pass, Grant me the serenity......"

and finally.....off to play in the woods and it snowed yesterday.....Snow Snow go away....fingers crossed for a mustang....

wow! I'm wiped! That's a lot to do in 48 hours! And yet you still find time to quilt in a parking lot...you're unstoppable! I think this is my second favorite quilt (the first being the one on my couch. untouchable 1st place. ever.). I am absolutely taken aback by all the Love Pouring Down!!♥♥ Celebrating love, life, family, friends, and heaven!

I love baseball! It's such a nice sport (as in comparison to, say, hockey where players are 'checked' and losing teeth routinely). Go NOah!! Sounds like he knows how to get his head in the game--he's a winner! yahoo!
