Gratitude is an art of painting an adversity
into a lovely picture
07.03.14 Wizard of Oz finds!!!
I ran into the local hobby/craft store to get dad some paints & came across these babies. How cute are they?!?!?! Had to get them for my mom.
I wanted to keep them to wear myself on Halloween
... or just whenever....
07.04.14 4th of July
Everything that came with it...
beautiful weather, a family cookout, a day off work,
fireworks & of course, a fancy patriotic horse
07.05.14 Friends from afar
Ryan's sister was in from Colorado & we were able to meet her before she went to the airport for lunch. She is just the sweetest soul.
She didn't want to leave her new little niece.
Distance bites sometimes.
07.06.14 A day with Miss Emerson
|(Blurry because Ricky was keeping the 'baby bounce' going)|
We got to see our Grandbuddy at church, then went out to lunch & then I got to spend the rest of the evening taking her picture.
New snuggly babies are the best.
07.07.14 She Reads Packet
I've been doing the She Reads Truth bible studies online
... they are awesome...
& I've never bought the packet. I just use a notebook.
But I wanted to see what it was all about. When a coupon for the 4th of July came out, I bought one. & mercy, these things are nice.
I'm excited to put it to use with the next study coming up.
I'm not sure I'll spend $25 every 2 weeks though for these though.
I'll have to be picky.
I do want to get a 8x10 frame though for these printables.
07.08.14 Peace & Quiet
The office manager had been out since the Wednesday of last week. It's only me & her on our side of the office & when she's gone, its so quiet & peaceful & I don't mind going into work one bit when I'm there by myself.
You'd think that means I'm slacking off.
I actually get MORE work done.
I learn every time she's gone that I am more of a hermit then I realized.
07.09.14 Kicking Butt
This Saturday will be 2 weeks since the last wedding I did, & I'm hoping to be done editing all the pictures. I'm at 601 pictures as of last night & have just the dancing at the reception to finish up!
So what are you thankful for this week?
