I found out today that a girl who belonged to me church a couple of years ago has died possibly of a stroke. This is Dana on the left beside Gina at VBS in 2007. She has 4 kids 2 teen boys and 2 small girls who are young. It is sad, the kids have been in foster care for a short time.

Now to the pleasant! I have been enjoying watching the hummers play and been taking a few pictures! I have my window up right now so they will get used to me taking their pictures, one likes watching me. Les is happy that the dominate one is using the feeder he made to guard the feeder, LOL.
Trey said he had to have 3 nurses hold Charli to get her shot yesterday. He took her by himself, she is in the 75% on height so she is taller than 75% of kids her age but in the 10% in weight so Gina needs to give her an extra Boost a day. The other morning she woke up while Trey was getting ready and Gina told him to give her a Boost instead on milk and she looked puzzled and took them "Want Milk!"
I wish she would eat more!

I am planning my garden for next year now. I want to get my beds laid out and planned. I have lots of Zinnia seeds and am going to do a FRIENDSHIP GARDEN so if you want swap seeds pleas let me know. Most of my lot is sunny.I have petunia seeds I got from work and a promise of Four o'clock seeds. The idea is not really mine but Debbie Phelps and I think it is awesome!
Jeremy and I finally talked last night. They did not save enough money to came home for a visit and for the next few months he has it real easy and is going to get some classes in. He wants to take up Photography. I am telling you he is so much like me that it is not funny. Dreams of having his own studio.
I won the Honorable Mention at My Life and Scraps so I can wear a badge at least, LOL!

Here are some of the machines working to get behind the church ready for our new social hall. It took hundreds of trucks of dirt taken out since they cut the hill down and are putting a drive beside the church.
Don't have too much to say today, I hope everyone is ok!

Here's another picture of Charli at the computer.
Well I have posted the last page for the My Life and Scraps Contest, I came in third for round 3 and this is the final one, I had to scrap My Passion and use a kit they gave me, I will post more if I do well, LOL
I almost forgot, it looks like Les broke his toe by dropping a case of Pepsi's on it. Typical for my house!

Charli enjoying her and Mommy playing with the laptop. I told Trey he is probably going to complain to Gina what I taught Charli today, LOL! We watched Bob the Builder and I taught her the song and I say "Bob the Builder" and she says "can we fix it!" then she used this on him when he got home. She got a new Cookie Monster toy and a part snaps off and she brought it to us and told us "Cookie" and told me to Fix it, I told her to tell her Daddy and so he went in her room and had to Fix it. Here I am beaming at how smart she is! I can't carry on conversations with most of my kids at work, only one will answer questions and she is 26 months old.
Jeremy is home. I have been playing phone tag and missed him but he talked to his Dad a long time. He is taking classes on coping. I look forward to talking to him!

I am the first to admit I am not on the computer like usual. I am going through one of those phases where I just want to do other stuff. I bought a stack of Birds and Blooms magazines and am going through them and thought I would share a great idea I just saw. A reader took a tomato cage and added plastic plant drainage trays and created a bird bath! So Cool!
Had a meeting at work today, had a nice meal and got a cute coffee cup. Also went to see our deacon who had hip replacement last week, he is doing great. Oh, Magan, one of the girls in my Sunday School class has SWINE FLU, it is going through the schools here.

I love comparing pictures of Jeremy and Seth, I am glad Jeremy is coming home so I can get some good pictures! Our Preacher's wife said he reminded her of Gina but I said before Charli looks like her Uncle Jeremy but they all have a strong resemblance with the blue eyes, blonde hair and the face shape.

I am sitting watching the show I Survived as I type this, I love that program! I do have to turn around and read some so I get distracted, LOL!
Anyway I had a great day. Charli came home with me because she was so sleepy but when she got here she ate and played. Gina went out to eat with my baby sister and her family. She said it was nice to eat a meal without stress. Charli is a handful at a restaurant!
I had a wonderful time at church tonight, too, I learned something important.

Proverbs 14:30 A sound heart (spirit) is life to the body, But envy (stress, strife, unforgiveness) is rottenness to the bones (cancer)
He explained how we cause ourselves to be sick and it made so much sense I came home and shared with Les!
