I am in love!
Truth be told, there is an issue. It seems that every single "Great Aunt" I've ever known has been very, very, very, very, very old. Elderly in fact. So, while I relish my new role, I have a bit of angst about it. I think I could handle Grandma better...there are young Grandmas...I've met some...but Great Aunts have traditionally been crotchity and smelled of old. I suppose it's up to me to shatter that perception! I'm up to the challenge! Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to the drug store to buy some more hair dye!
Welcome to the world little Holden!!

Two of my three kids are home...my boy is at Airborne school...jumping out of perfectly good airplanes.
We're all going to be together soon and I'll be taking a week off for fun.
SO....I will be offering a vacation discount in my shop starting Friday, August 12th...until Monday, August 23rd...mind you, I'll be completely ignoring my shop during that time so you'll have to be patient for your order!

Don't you just love discounts?

I cherish our friendship...guard it...treasure it in my heart and I get greedy when she's here....because time with her is precious...
We forgot to take a photo of us...so this one will have to do. (Truth be told, we didn't shut up long enough to pose) These gals look like they're reading each others minds...remembering the time they...(fill in the blank). They look like they're about to bust up laughing because one of them said "click...click...click..." and the other is about to snort with utter glee!! (It's a long story...)

A little update...I finally hit 10 pounds lost in spite of a little vacation, family dinners, celebrations and chocolate. Back on the wagon!
I'm going to add more exercise to my routine this week...gotta get moving! Up to this point, exercise has been minimal.
There is 8 weeks left until our cruise...and the absolute certainty that I will be wearing a swim suit...in public...
Wish me luck!

I'm down 8 pounds...and counting.
A few things I've discovered:
I can live without cookies.
Raw veggies are VERY good dipped in hummus.
Watermelon fills you up.
Sugar is overrated.
You don't have to be a "points nazi" to stay on program. I'm guesstimating and it's working fine.
A few bonuses I've experienced:
I sleep better when not hopped up on sugar all day.
I don't beat myself up for having that second through fifth cookie ...or piece of chocolate...or cake, etc. every day...because I'm not having any!
It is MUCH easier as time goes by to tell myself no...and I don't dwell on it. It's becoming a lifestyle.
My pants are looser...but I'm not quite ready to go down a size...

So...this first week, I really stuck to the points. I don't think I went over even one day. I walked a few days, not every day.

It was beautiful! It was colorful! It was heavenly! It looked like spring!
So, now I'm back home enjoying the tulips I bought...on my kitchen table...waiting for my cherry tree to bloom while it pours outside...thanking God for the hope of spring!

I love these photos! This little guy is so cute!
My daughter found these one day when we went to my favorite antique store. Little did I know, she is a vintage photo addict too! We looked through boxes and boxes of photos and laughed and laughed! Mixed in with the prim and proper cabinet photos and staged family photos by the Christmas tree, we found photos of people with real senses of humor. People who would break with tradition and decorum and ham it up for the camera! I bought several that were too good to leave behind. There's just something about someone elses' photos...perhaps I'm a little voyeuristic...yep, I'll bet that's it...

One of the ladies laid a beautiful speckled egg today...not blue. Speckled. I have been waiting, waiting, waiting for my Araucana hens to lay their blue eggs. The other day I ventured out to collect eggs and noticed Opal...one of the Araucanas...sort of hovering around where they all tend to lay in the coop. She was standing up but obviously pushing...I could tell she was going to lay an egg. I was SO EXCITED..."I'm going to get to witness the laying of my first blue egg!!!"...and a few seconds later...plop...out came a BROWN EGG! I was dumbfounded. So...apparently, even though my Araucanas LOOK like Araucanas and have all the characteristics of Araucanas (looks like a duck, acts like a duck), they don't have enough Araucana in them to lay blue eggs. That figures. I'm still holding out hope that Pearl will lay blue...but I'm not holding my breath.
Ah well...brown is beautiful...and speckled is divine.
