Day 59


Day 58 Photo Me Momma

I don't take my kids' pictures unless they want me to.  I will snipe them while they play but to actually
do a look at the camera type of shot, it is always their idea.  I don't want them growing up hating the 
camera so I leave them alone... for the most part :)  I have been know to throw a good party or bake
special treats because I know they will genuinely smile and let me take the photos.
  I know the girls will want their photos done in new
clothes and the boys will want them done... almost never.  So, when Lil' Miss looked at me with her
big eyes and bed head and said photo me momma, I couldn't resist.  No party, no cookies, no new 
clothes... just her being her.  Perfect.

Day 57 Sun Tea

My last glass iced tea jar broke a couple of years ago.  Since then I've used a Mason jar.
Ok, so it's not elegant or sophisticated but it is
  kind of fun actually, having a personal serving size of sun tea... 
I just add ice, a straw, and a little honey and I'm good to go lol!

Day 49 Trippy Glass

This was a gift from my brother this past Christmas.  I don't know how he does it but he always comes up with the most amazing things.  This is called uranium or vaseline glass which I had never even heard of before this bowl but now love.  This stuff glows under a blacklight!  How trippy is that!?!  Thank you little bro, peace and love :)

Day 48 Cold Heart

Day 47 my birthday

Sigh... where to begin?  Yesterday was my birthday and unfortunately I was sick for it.
  I tried to talk myself into getting over the cold all week but you know that never works.  
So, it was a mellow sort of celebration.  
The girls made me my favorite cake, red velvet, and DH made me
my favorite dinner, lasagna, the night before because I like it the second day best.  
Then yesterday, DH took me antiquing and shopping for a few hours (at this point 
I realized just how wiped out I really was)
 and while I was gone my little elves were busy.
They decorated the house with streamers and made this adorable banner.  
I was completely surprised that they did that.  I was tired and sick
but they really made the day special.  Spending my birthday with them was the best gift,
actually, spending any day with them is the best.

Another year older... I should say another year wiser and be mature, but there's this 
little sarcastic voice in my noggin that's screaming, "Ha!  I made it another year,
take that!" and laughing hysterically.  That can't be good, can it?

Day 40 February Self-Portrait

One self-portrait a month, that's what I promised myself.  It seemed so much easier in January than it does just 1 week before I turn another year older... sigh...
