My Image Your Image

This is some of the most glorious nature shots I have seen in a long time. I was blown away by the detailed shots that show the beauty that God blesses us with daily that we often take for granted.

Friday 7/28 Blog Prompt - Digital Scrapbook Place

Friday 7/28 Blog Prompt - Digital Scrapbook Place: "Here's one from Laura Lou!

'What advice would you give your much younger self if you could?'"

So much of what I experienced as my younger self makes me my older (and hopefully wiser) self now....but I would definitely say finish college. If I had done that then I wouldn't be struggling to do it now. Other than that, I can see the lessons I learned in each thing that happened to me or that I did and I really wouldnt change much.

Mon 7/10 Blog Prompt - Digital Scrapbook Place

Mon 7/10 Blog Prompt - Digital Scrapbook Place: "Summer: Sunny, warm, picnics, outdoors, sunshine, hot, sticky, sweltering, insects, bugs, camping, swimming, lakes, boating, summer, corn, carnivals, festivals, parades, beach, fun, celebrate, biking, hiking, campfires, pools, outdoors, watermelon, sand castles, ice cream.

sweet summer corn on the there any taste like that...slathered with butter and salt....or icy crisp watermelon...sweet and juicy.....sunny days are here again.

I learned last night on our evening news that we are in the dog days of summer here. Contrary to "pup"ular (ok bad pun) belief, the dog days of summer have nothing to do with canines and how they suffer in the heat but occurs when Sirius (the dog star) is in conjunction with the sun which ancients believed added to the heat of the sun, bringing sticky sweltering weather.... This period usually last from early July to mid August. Isn't it grand that two years in a row, I am in my third trimester during this period....

African American Barbie Dolls

African American Barbie Dolls

As a girl, Barbies were never at top of my christmas wish list. I had a few but I wasnt crazy about her. I preferred books to dolls and it remained that way for years. UntilI turned 25 and was bit by the collecting bug. My collection has grown to 12 Barbies....

Thurs 5/6 Blog Prompt - Digital Scrapbook Place

Thurs 5/6 Blog Prompt - Digital Scrapbook Place

Choose a character. What was your favorite fairy tale as a child, and which character did you most identify with?

Its not the typical "fair tale' but I LOVED Madeline L'Engle's A Wrinkle In Time and boy did I identify with Meg! She was smart, a loner, and adventurous....I admired her and wanted to be her. I read all the books in that series voraciously....over and over again.

I coudn't wait to introduce my daughters to Meg..........

Wed 7/5 Blog Prompt - Digital Scrapbook Place

Wed 7/5 Blog Prompt - Digital Scrapbook Place

For those of us that stayed up too late watching fireworks, tell us about it! Or whatever you did to celebrate Independence day!

My 4th of July was miserable. My oldest six children are outta town with my mom for the week and this was my first holiday without them. We chatted on webcam and they looked to having so much fun. I wanted to be there with them. I ended up eating chinese with my husband and watching the remake of the Amityville Horror.

All in all I am eagerly awaiting Sunday cause my children will be back home!

Tuesday's Update
For today let's think about "independence". What does it mean to you? Your family? Your life? Your future?

Independance has been a big deal on my mind this past couple weeks. Going to school has been getting harder and harder. But I realize that it is a choice so that I can express my independance. I recently started two home business in order to gain independance from the financial hardships on our family. My children are all in different stages of independance and its bittersweet to watch them grow and change. They all have their own thoughts and opinions and are not shy about expressing them It makes parenting them a challenge but it also tells me that I am raising THINKERS. That they will be able to use their brains to figure out if the path they are following is the right one with out me being there. In my mind thats the best way to prepare them for the future. My younger children (ages 11 months and 22 months) are doing typical toddler things.

Monday's Update

Write a poem. This was a great exercise. I decided to write a haiku. I always struggle with writing these as try to stay with the japanese rule that these have meaning...not cjust the sentences but life philosphy

preserving my memories
scrapbooking is life
