I cannot even believe that I forgot to talk about Sunday. I had to have Barb remind me....oh boy! thanks Barb, I feel so bad! Rachel did a fabulous job! I was really sweating it up in the choir loft, fearing she might stumble or not be able to do it! She was wonderful! Her singing was so sweet, the readings were so well done, all that from a 12 year old! Amazing! I don't have any pictures but I couldn't be any prouder. The ladies in the choir came over and told me to start breathing again :) Many people told me how well she did, including Father, who I ran into at the store today! So, she is ready for the next time the end of August!

Of course I did not get all those errands done yesterday, but some of them anyway. Tomorrow is another day. I just realized that I have to get toiletries for all three of them, since they might not be together in the same cabin. More stuff to buy!
We took the birds to the pet store today to have their wings clipped. My African Grey always puts up such a fight, it's pathetic. He starts ripping his feathers out while she has him wrapped in the towel. Poor baby. At least now they can't fly anymore. We were eyeing the new kittens they had in the store, but no, I am not getting another one, although they were really really cute! :)
I got one page done this morning, that's it
That new painter's tray is amazing, so much fun to play with. In fact there is so much new stuff coming to the store, I didn't know what to use first :) What a dilemma to have, I know!
Here are the credits in case you want to take a peek.
Thanks for liking my photos. I have to decide which one to submit for the local photo walk contest. I was thinking about using the panning shot, what do you think?

Anyway, I just wanted to post this for Barb since she was asking, have a wonderful Thursday evening!

Aw, thanks, Anke. Even though I knew she would do great I always love to hear about your kids! It is fantastic she is so young and doing this. What a great thing for her. Isn't it great to see your kids all excel at what is their own particular strength?

I would surely choose the panning pictures. While I loved them all, that one was my favorite!

Probably be a good idea to get separate toiletries. They probably won't be in the same cabin. Well, if you DON'T get separate they will be in different cabins, you can bet on that one. If you do, they will all be together!! Law of life, you know!

Just think. Now they all are mad at you for making them go, in just a short time, you will be their "bestest" friend for giving them the time of their life!! LOL

I think Barb's comment says it all. I couldn't add another thing. Except to say, she is SO right! LOL

Never say Never!

Well, here I am creating my very own blog! I was always very sure I would never get into this blogging "thing", but here I am. I hope you will enjoy finding out a little about my not so interesting life!
