I just read this book. I have always enjoyed Minerva's work
even before I knew about her. It is soft looking. It is beautiful!

Minerva lived in the wilds of ranch life! She worked hard and
painted much. She was a woman of strong will! She knew what she wanted
and worked till she got it! She never did the expected! She wasn't quiet
and demure. Her favorite color was red!
There is something red in all her paintings.

You have got to read this book!! It is a Little House on the Prairie mixed The
Unsinkable Molly Brown. I hear copies are hard to come by
but can be seen at DI.

Happy Spring!!

if I wanted to "hear the funny noise the cat
makes when I squeeze him!" I told him no!

Today I took my sweet nephew out on a hot date!! He is three. I wear glasses ALL THE TIME. He saw me w/ out said glasses. He walked into a wall because he was looking at me like I had come in his home in a chicken costume. He asked me no less then forty time if I was truly his Auntie! "Are you my Auntie?" "You Auntie?" Over and over!! I am laughing my head of typing about it!! I LOVE that kid!!!

Yesterday I was having a conversation w/ my brother in law
about all the education my little nephew was getting
at his twice weekly preschool. My brother in law stated "Theodore
is learning his letters and letter sounds and his numbers. "Theodore what
comes after seven?" Theodore w/ out missing a beat stated "MAY!"

Later that day grumpy little Theodore stood at the back door yelling
"Dadddyyyy Hey Daddddy! Do you want to play w/ your favorite little boy?"

I took my one year old tiny shopping about mid shop
he started waving his hands telling me (in baby sign)
that he was "all done". What a smart little cricket he is!!
Oh I love him!!

I love my nephews!! They are the best little people
I know! Today I had the chance to spend some
time w/ my best friends Eli and Isaac!
Eli and Isaac both had runny noses
and weren't feeling the best.
Eli even told me he died and layed on the couch
for a few minutes. (That isn't like him). Eli
got out all the toilet paper and paper towels
in the pantry and made towers for quite
a few minutes. I sat on the floor next to him
and looked something up on my phone.
I then had to quickly grab his brother in his room
and set my phone down. I came back later and
couldn't find my phone ANYWHERE!
I even pulled out the fridge.
I then lost Eli. He had opened the front door and ran
away! when I caught up w/ him he was on his
way to Las Vegas I'm sure!
I decided I needed to bring out the big guns!
The sand box it was. It was warm outside and I needed
a drink I stepped in for 2 seconds and
came out to Isaac who is normally
a total tow head sporting chocolate milk
covered hair and every inch of his body had sand on
it or in it. Not to mention the new sandy facial hair.
I then decided baths were in order. I filled the tub 
    and Isaac cried bloody murder while I tried to quickly
wash the sand from his soft body.
Eli tried to get as much water out of the tub in
the shortest time possible.
We got re-diapered and turned on a show.
My sister came home and knew which hidey hole
to check for my phone. But right before we
looked in the right place we looked under the couch.
There sat 6 green apples w/ little tiny bites taken out of each one
and then lovely lodged behind the couch.
Wonder who did that?
My sister is on call for those little sweeties 24/7.
She is Wonder Woman! I am not and I need a nap!! 


 Upon seeing my nephew at the wedding (My brother's) I asked him if he would like to go on the elevator. For a full hour later he was upset with me because I would not show him the "alligator" I had suggest he ride upon his arrival. Elevator and alligator do sound similar! Poor fella!

Long time no post!! I have been busy!

*Two week notice for a no budget impromptu wedding. I felt like The Little Red Hen!!

* A birthday filled to the brim w/ goodness!!

*Blood pressure through the roof...killer side effects!!

While playing w/ my nephew 3 and his friend I ask what they wanted for Christmas.
Friend: I want a remote control car, air plane and boat. I told him that was gunna cost Santa a lot and so he stated that he only needed one.
I then asked my darling nephew what he would like. He looked at my w/ a total dead pan expression and said "A magic wand so I can turn my self into lots of different people!!
What in the heck? This kid is the silliest ever!! I then taught them how to eat sunflower seeds right out of the flower! Time well spent!

*The leaves are falling! I love my boiled wool slippers even more. The days are darker and over cast and I am reminded that I am solar powered! *The bright glow of the yellow leaves makes me happy!!

Happy Fall!!

Bee Still!

My sweet tiny nephew has just begun
walking. He is still a little wobbly.
He loves to explorer his back yard.
Often he is found standing in front of
a flowering bush w/ vibrant purple flowers.
He is looking close at the happy honey bees
readying the hive.
I love the look of wonder and discovery
on his face. I love that he can stay
still for a long time watching
the quiet work of the bees.
I love that he reminded me to "Bee Still".



One year ago the world changed!
I feel so blessed to have been part of her

It's like magic!

Oh Cath!

WE all know how much I love Cath (Kidston)
We all know how costly all her things are!!
Her closest store? London!
Look who I ran into at the thrift store the other day!
It was super stained and really nasty but I figured for
fifty cents it was worth a try.
I tried and tried using many different concoctions
to clean this little lady nothing worked till
in desperation I soaked her in peroxide over night.
Good as new...or good enough!!

Things I love as late:
*The crispness in the air.
*My tiny(Linkey) nephew walking!
*The same nephew had a 1 year old birthday!
*Free things!
*Already having Christmas gift thoughts!
*Finding Rapunzel hair at DI for my favorite little friend EMI!!
Happy last days of Summer!!
