Happy Planner/Scrapbook

Hello.  I am back again with a couple more pages in my Happy Planner. 

Week of June 22nd - 28th
   I went with a fruit theme.  I thought it would be red, and green.  Super bright.  But when I started putting the pieces together, it ended up pink, red, and minimum of light green.  That is ok, I like how it turned out.

   We have gotten a lot of rain.  Which has made every thing green.  And given me lots of time for reading.  Especially since, I pulled a muscle in my neck.

Week of June 29th - July 5th
   4th of July week....This is one of my favorite weeks.  I just love all of the red, white and blue.  I didn't do as much decorating as I usually do.  The time just snuck up on me.  The theme in my planner was red, white and blue.  I went easy, because I had a lot I could have added.  I love the dashboard, I made and added plus the pinwheels.

   We had a cat show up at the door one night this week.  I really didn't want a pet, but it would not go away and it was so hungry for food and loving.  We ended up taking her end.  She is about a year and so loving.   She will be a happy addition to the family.

I am just a picture short of having the next week done.  I will try to get it done the first of next week.  Unless I find some more pictures to print out.  Plus I want to get this week done earlier.

Well my timer for dinner is going off.  Chat with you later.

I must apologize

Hello and I must apologize.  I can't believe it has been over a year since I have posted anything on the front page.  I will start back posting at least once a week.

My first roses of the season.

I mentioned my planner/scrapbook on the stamping page.  I started it the second week of June.  It won't be any thing exciting.  But I thought it would be fun to scrapbook my way through a year.  It will just be every day things.  (Laundry, Books I am Reading, Weather, Menu and just a few pics and crafts.) 

I will be posting pages here if you are interested.  All the pages in June will be pink.  I am using the new Create 365 by Mambi (Me and My Big Ideas).  The books start in July but I bought the add on pack so I could start it right away.

June 8th-14th
   It was the start of summer vacation so there was lots of reading time and just relaxing and enjoying the time off.  It was great to take a walk and see the flowers blooming.

June 15th- 21nd
  Lots of rain and household chores.  I even made a few things for the page.  A cute little bear, a flip flop and a laundry basket. 

I will be posting the last week of June later in the week.   I have a few pictures to pick up and it will be finished.  I can't wait to work on this weeks.  I am using red, white and blue.  4th of July here we come.

Off to read some more.  Chat with you later in the week.

Happy Mother's Day

I just wanted to take a moment to wish every Mother out there.  A wonderful Mother's Day.  I am blessed with an amazing Mother and I am grateful for having her in my life.

Have a great day.

I am confused.  Is it spring or not?  Yesterday was just so sunny and beautiful.  Today, we had freezing rain.  It rained most of the day.  Luckily it didn't stick to the roads  But this is one of the trees in my front yard with ice on it.

I couldn't believe it.

Have a great evening.

Winter 2014

We woke up Saturday morning to 3 inches of snow and lots of snow drifts.  My front yard looked like a snow plow had dumped snow in it, but it was actually from snow drifts.  This winter has been amazing.  Record amounts of snow, two deep freezes with below zero temps, and winds chills even lower. 

February is usually the coldest month.  I just don't know what to expect. 

If you are in the North, please stay warm.  If you are down South, enjoy the milder days.

New Year, New Look

I have decided to make all of the pages look alike.  I went with blue for the winter months.  I might change it for Valentine's Day, but it will depend on how much time I have over the next six weeks.

I didn't take this picture.  It was taken by a local photographer, Lad Strayer.   This is downtown Adrian.  I thought the picture was perfect for a wintery day.

We went home to South Carolina and Alabama for the holidays.  It was a great trip.  We got home yesterday and I am still digging out.  Usually I leave my house clean when we go on vacation, but not this time.  I had too many others thing inferring.  So have a normal cleaning to do and all of the unpacking.

I like to defrost the freezer at the beginning of the winter, so since we had single digit temperatures and snow falling all day.  I decided to get it done.  After several hours, it is finished.  Every thing is once again organized.  I wish it would stay this way, but it won't.

This is about it for now.  I will try to come back later in the week.
