Connie Prince has a new kit coming out at Gotta Pixel and Elemental Scraps the first of the week for $2 and so I made these two pages. I was watching the VH1 100 greatest one hit wonders and the song inspired me to do the top page. The kit is called Life is a Picnic, very cute kit!
Les and I just got home, we went to the Faith Home and stopped by a yard sale where we got several flower pots for a quarter and fifty cents. I also got some glass pieces to make a project we plan on doing. I have really got him inspired to do some things together and he has a good start on the garage, he has started organizing his tools and found things he forgot he had, LOL!

We saw a great garden while we were out, they had a chair with a plant and used clay pots on the side with ivy growing over them. It was in the neighborhood my teen friend Pam lived in.

I have to say I had the most relaxing time this week listening to The Fantastic Shakers at our Live After Five uptown last night! I sat enjoying the fun music including beach, disco, and soul, eating my cheeseburger from the Caravan and working on my latest crochet project. I so hope Charli can go with us next year to these concerts! They even did the YMCA and Cupid Shuffle!
What a blast Les and I have together at these things, we can forget the stress of work and drama of family.
FIL still in hospital, sugar very high and still yellow and work was pretty good Thursday, no bites.

This is just a very quick post this morning to share some pictures of my DGS! Julie had sent them to my gmail account and I had not checked it in awhile. Hope I will not be so busy this afternoon but car is fixed, no real news on my FIL but thegrowth in his liver is larger and he is running a fever and knee is Much better, almost normal. I hope all is well with everyone! I will stop by and check on you later!

Just scrapping some of the pictures of Charli I have taken recently. This is Connie Prince's new kit called Your Sweetness is my Weakness and is on sale for $1 at Gotta Pixel and Elemental Scraps.

Les went to the Doctor today because he got a spider bite Saturday and he has Blood Poisoning. George, my FIL is not doing well, he has some kind of infection and they are not sure how to get rid of it.
My knee is getting much better, thank goodness, just a little stiff.
Charli has learned to jump and does it a lot. She is early on this! I have had 2 year olds that cannot lift themselves to jump. She is especially enjoying Hop on Pop and jumping on Les, now HE started that so has himself to blame, LOL! I am glad she loves him so much! (BUT she still likes me better, ROFLMBO!)
My car is fixed and Les got several things done, including making a windchime.

What a Monday I had! Work was good, only had 4 kids until 10:30 and then my biter came in just before lunch and nap so he was fine. Left work to go to Gina's because she wanted to go do Grandmama's hair but she wasn't home. OK, I start driving to my Grandmother's and my belt comes off and car runs hot. Call Gina, no answer. Les can come at his lunch time. Gina calls me, she was at doctor, she has a cyst on her ovary and she can come get me. Les fixes car to get me home. Mom takes me to church Women's meeting and Liegh Anne brings me home.
Not a bad day and really not irritated BUT a long day, was almost 9:30 before I got home! Grandmama was very happy to see Gina and Charl and to get her hair fixed. I will get pictures off my camera later but this picture is my violet one of my kids gave me for my Birthday in February, it is doing so good! I keep meaning to root some of the leaves.
We made some great plans and will have a work day at church next week.
THEN at about 11:00 we got the call that my FIL was in the hospital again, Les went for awhile and came home to get some sleep. The phone rang again at 2:30 and they were admitting him so in addition to fixing my car, he has to deal with that, today.
Well Les is going to take me to work so he can put my waterpump on, I hope Trey gets off at 5:00 today! Les's biopsies all came back good BTW.

I have been blessed to be able to spend some time with a friend of mine lately. She helped me get ready for my first yard sale and I gave her a few things and enjoyed spending the time together. She made me this doll just for Charli, it is cute and is 'baby safe' with stitched eyes and is just the right size. I had Charli last night and we took her new baby to church, I think you can tell she liked it! THANK YOU, LYNN!
After church we went to Sonic and got some Tater Tots, I told her to smile for me and I got a cute shot of that pretty little face! She has a blast playing with other children, she especially loves older children like Tyler. She chasing him all over, he is 9. Well better get to work!

Well the Bar-B-que was gone so I got an Italian sauseage dog and Peach ice cream and sat down to listen to A.J. and Company That was a true Blast from the past to hear "Ain't no Sunshine" and "Sitting on the Dock of the Bay" because I had them on 8 Track! I think I had maybe 3, one with these songs a Neil Diamond and Barbara Striesand I think it was 1972.
How blessed we are to have a town that puts on these free concerts! I sat right in front and Les joined me when he got off. My favorite was listening to "On Broadway" The wonderful full beat and you could tell he had fun playing.
I am so looking forward toCharli going with me to listen. I hope she learns to enjoy live music and the atmosphere. I sure do!
