My sweet cat Gabby pasted away this past April. So my DH and Dear Children decided that I need a new kitty friend.
This is Gabby ....she was able 12 years old. This little darling is Vixen, her favorite place is under the computer desk on top of the modem. She was given to me by my children.

Here is my DS Robert with Vixen.

Miss Vixen again...she wanted Robert to pick her up. This is Mr. Andy, my DH got him on one of his jobs. The pink collar was because he (DH) thought that he was a she. He now has a new boy collar...

This is a not so good picture of Andy...he is all for taking the best seat in the house...DH's hehehe
They can't replace my dear Gabby, but it is nice to have some soft furies around again. Plus the dog General Lee is too big for my lap...
So until we meet again ~~smiles~~

My youngest grand daughter Miss Keria turned two on July 18th. Here are a few pictures of the fun.Miss Ginny with one of her many faux snakes. She loves snakes, and cake, here she is waiting for her cut of the cake.

Some of the goodies Miss Keria got, there are more in the other room. Pops was taking the pictures so he is not in any of them.

My DS Robert and myself. I have cut my hair since this picture. All the pictures were taken at my DD's house.

More of big sis and a better look at the cake. It was yellow cake with butter cream and mutli color sprinkes on it. My DD made it, she is becoming a great cook .

DD Andrea and Miss Keria.

A not so clear picture of Nana and the girls. Miss Keria was only interested in the faux jewels she got. I think she will be my glam girl.

I hope you enjoyed a page in our lives. Until we meet again

I'm slowly getting all my new pictures uploaded and well as a great many of my crafts worked on. I'm also getting all over do stuff packed and ready to send out to family and others.

I had to share the newest picture of the girls. I love how well this one came out. Miss Keria (the youngest) doesn't sit down for very long, so this picture is extra special because she is not only sitting but happy as well. Everyone who has had to try and get a child to be still for long know just what I mean. Miss Ginny also had to have a red, white and blue band aid for her booboo so that she matched in the picture. She is the princess of the family,and at almost five , she is so into fashion and having the best outfits. Good thing Nana is ready to spoil on command. hehehe

I hope all is well with everyone and until we meet again. ~~smiles~~

I'm setting here enjoying that just after it rains cool air. My DH is playing (setting up) the new tank for our turtle. She was about the size of a small bullfrog when we got her over three years ago. She has grown about ten times that size and this is her third up size on the tank. But the good thing about her outgrowing her last tank is that my grand daughters hermit crabs now have a bigger new/old home. While my DH is having his fun I'm going around visiting and reading blogs that I haven't had a chance to visit or read in awhile. I so much enjoy the quiet time around here and I hope that all is well with everyone. So until we meet again ~~smiles~~

P.S. I really need to get my photos developed. Oh well one of these days hehehe

I have a long list of things that I have yet to do. One of the big things is cleaning and organizing my craft room. My DH keeps telling me that I can't buy anything else until I know just what I already have in the room. (silly man). I have everything in the room, I just don't know where it is. But truly, I do need to make this room easier to work in. With it being unorganized I have a bad habit of putting things in there to do later. It always seems that later doesn't come very often around here. There are project from last Halloween as well as Christmas. There are several things that I have been working on to get in the Esty store that I want to start and there are more finish projects that need pictures to be taken. I was able to put the blame on being sick for such a long time that it is too easy to fall into that thinking. And every new idea or project that I want to do keeps being put off until the room is clean. So what am I waiting for? That's a good question. I was so into doing my crafts and when I got so sick so fast, it really scared me. So that step into that room is a big step, it is time to be well and to stay that way and the only way I'll be able to do this is to go back to crafting the way I use to.

So here is my list to start:

1. Do the craft room no matter what!!!

2. Paint the wooden dresser in my bedroom RED

3. Hang the new curtain rods and curtains in my bedroom

4. Finish painting the birdhouses that Robert made for me.

5. Finally finish the craft items already started in the craft room.

6. Take and then get the developed pictures of items, as well as up load the digital pictures to computer.

So I hope in a few days I will have some pictures to share with everyone of the new and improved craft room as well as finish projects. Keep looking in on me. Until we meet again ~~smiles~~
