Busy again this week...I'm in charge of crafts for VBS...got to get all that together so very very busy again.
Here is a pic I took last week when I made my blueberry muffins...I was eating one and found this...God truly does have a sense of humor...
May God's love "smile" on you today.

Second...look what I finally got in the mail today...
A total blast from the past...I'm sure many of you remember this toy...I remember as a kid spending hours playing with this toy...the Spirograph...I acutally found a complete set on eBay (minus the pens of course) for a great deal so I jumped on it...I is a very happy and tickled little girl...I have just spent the last half hour just playing with this...had to borrow Austin's markers in order to use it since I don't have any pens that will work in this silly thing...but oh...how fun this is! I know...I'm a bit strange and really need to get out more...can't wait to play some more... ;-)
Brennan is in his last week of Art, History and Literacy classes at Hopewell...he seems to enjoy it, other than the getting up early part...doesn't like that of course.
Austin is at art class right now...in fact I need to go pick him up right now...see what happens when you get nostalgic toys in the mail...you lose all track of time...more later!

The weather was perfect...and unfortunately the pictures I got of the sunset doesn't do it nearly even enough justice...it was beautiful...I had the opportunity to just sit and take pictures of the sunset and just thank God for his amazing beauty...it's beautiful things like a sunset that makes me wonder how anyone can question that there is a God....amazing!
So as you can see from this picture...or maybe not...my sons spent the last bit of their evening at the picnic picking up rocks and stuffing them in their pockets...I had to laugh because as a kid I was the one picking up rocks for my "rock collection" (forgive me mom)...These boys had enough rocks between the three of them they could have built a fort...ok...maybe not quite, but you get the idea...needless to say I made them pick only three rocks each and that's what they got to bring home. Needless to say...despite my best efforts while doing laundry today, I still found a few rocks in my washer...guess that gives new meaning to stonewashing, huh?? Just had to share that.
Starting a diet this week...hoping to lose 20 pounds. We'll see...it's a new diet based on the Bible...so far today has been OK...again we shall see.
Hope you are haviing a great week...

from this girl here...I wanted a kit that would break me out of my boring scrapbooking rut and I thought this kit would be just the thing...So I bought the kit with very little info and pretty much went out of my comfort zone and decided to just do it. I just received it this week and I'll be honest I was sort of disappointed at first for what I paid and what I received...but then after I received her instructions and really started to get into it...this is easily becoming one of my favorite albums and I am so enjoying the process. It is truly stretching my scrapbooking limits...I have had several moments while making this album where I've said to myself, "Now I never thought of doing it this way...or Wow...that's a neat idea why didn't I think of that?" I think sometimes when you do something you tend to follow what everyone else does and just not push the envelope. My envelope has been pushed this week...apparently by the dark circles under my eyes as well staying up WAY to late enjoying this whole thing...tomorrow is house cleaning cause my house is a wreck!!! ;-) I've been a bad girl ;-)
Saw Ratatouille yesterday...cute movie...boys liked it. Hubby even got to go and he even suggested taking the boys to go see it...good times!
Well I really am tired...no nap today and I have to get up early remember??
