I've been so busy, I feel like Ive just been running like a maniac! I keep meaning to post these pics from when I did my summer decorating. This is the bulk of it, theres more, mostly seashells like, everywhere...
by the way, have you seen the mermaids that Laurie from Magpie Ethel made? Omg! stinking cute! go see them!
I think I need to get some really big seashells... not that I know where I would put them! lol.. I seriously have a small house.. packed with a lot of stuff.
so, what have I been doing? friday I worked, then shopped and made stuff to take to our family reunion. Saturday morning I picked up Marla pie at 8:00 am and kept her busy til it was time to head out to the city for the reunion. We were there all day, and then came home and Torry end up spending the night.
I thought he was tired enough that he would just go to sleep, but he laid there awake for about 2 hours, it was probably close to 1:00 before he fell asleep!... I was sooo tired! then at 7:00, he woke up and told me, "Grammie!! I get up now!" I am not a late sleeper and even 7:00 is late for me, but I think I could have slept another hour! LOL!
So today after he went home, rob and tiff and Jennifer showed up and we visited for a while.Then I ran to the grocery store for a few things and have been in the kitchen ever since. My mother and aunt and my sister are all up visiting from florida, chicago and Missouri, and are all coming for lunch tomorrow. so I made a big chicken salad with grapes and almonds, zuchinni bread and choc chip cookies. I have pasta salad left over from yesterday and Im thinking about making that watermelon kiwi salsa that I love. ... but for right now, Im pooped out! pooped out I tell ya!
Does it seem to anyone else that blogland has been quiet lately? maybe its just because we're all busy enjoying the summer weather. I would have liked to go to the beach today.. but really it was a little chilly out... but now I wish I had gone...
I bought a new bathing suit last week, though I ordered it from macys and its a little big. I'm trying to decide weather to return it or not. I should.. but then I wont have one to wear because the one Ive been wearing is falling apart!
And I need to go to the beach! lol (I was whinning in there, in case you didnt know)
Anyways... back to the reunion, we had a good time. It was nice to see all my cousins and their families. my mom comes from a big family, 8 kids. so I have lots of cousins.. that all have grown children and grand children now.. its a big family! I'll post pics sometime this week.. or just hop over to my flickr by clicking on any of these pics and you can see them there.. (if you want too.... lol!)
Im starting to think about halloween! Its creeping into my brain. Im not in a hurry, because I dont want summer to end.. but its out there.. on the way.. creeping up rather quickly! I've been pinning halloween on pinterest.. theres so much cute stuff and good ideas! I really would probably be better off to stay away from there. I already have too much halloween stuff! LOL!
OH.. and give my sympathy... I got stunk by a bee or wasp.. (didnt see what it was) on my middle toe on friday at work.. Omg! I never had so much pain. I swear it hurt worse then when I broke my foot! and swell? omg.. and itch now??? omg!
anyways.. I shall live thankfully... lol.. wasnt sure at first though! I admit it Im a wimp to begin with but that freaken hurt!
Okeedokie.. Im heading over to visit some blogs now..
