A Day to Celebrate, A Day to Thank Those Who Serve

In the midst of your 4th of July celebrating, I hope you will join me in taking a moment to thank those who have ensured our freedoms and security – our military, police, and firefighters.

I hope you have a FANTASTIC 4th of July…

Be safe, enjoy your family and friends, and may God Bless the USA!    (Enjoy a little Lee Greenwood)

And one other tradition Tim and I share on the 4th is watching the Boston Pops, here’s our favorite song:  The Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular: Sousa’s Stars and Stripes Forever (thank you BetsysView)

From my family to yours,

Happy 4th of July!

My Prayer for You on This Sunday…

Another find from Pinterest, these words say it all.

God Bless…

ps…  I promise I’ll try to be back to my wordy self tomorrow.  It’s been a crazy weekend of moving things into the basement (the storerooms are now done) and cleaning, moving, and organizing in my NEW workshop (aka old storage room).

Needless to say I’ve been having fun working playing in what will be my new workshop!

OK…full disclosure:  One of the keys in selling Tim on the idea was to describe it as our “Finishing Shop” where we’ll do all the painting/staining of the pieces he builds.

Shhhhhh…don’t tell him I’m still going to call it “my shop”!



Live it up!

I love this saying by Mae West!

Let’s put it all out there as we live our lives…

Live fully.  Love with your whole heart.  Be thankful.  Praise God.  Give of yourself.  Spend time praying or meditating.  Be YOU!  And laugh…every chance you get!

Happy Saturday all!

Do What You Can Do…

This picture and its saying are fantastic – a little sassy, but fantastic!

To all my fellow auto-immune disease sufferers – I say:  Let’s raise a glass of water and toast ourselves – and to those who don’t understand and don’t want to try to understand – to heck with you!

We may take longer to do some things (work, rest, work again)…we may be more tired and achy… Read more

The Mathematician, The Woodworker, The Pope, The BOSS Fan, The Biker,

and the Dad, the Husband, and my Best Friend.

These are all terms to describe Timothy.

You’ve all read about the Math Teacher:  Kudos to 20 Years of Teaching Math

He’s also a talented woodworker…yes, at times we call him “Tim the Toolman” although he’s much less accident prone than Tim Allen.  He puts up with my brilliant hair-brained ideas…and calmly goes about building them.  I have however, put my foot down…I’ve told him he can’t have a refrigerator and bathroom in his “shop”…because with three girls I may never see him again!
