     It has definitely been awhile - reading my last post reminds me that I need to post a new collage of Jamie's and my trip to Pennsylvania.

     It wasn't exactly what we had planned but we made the most of it and had a great time. The car is the one we rented for our trip - 2011 Ford Fiesta, mind you I'm used to cars from the late '90s, this one had many bells and whistles for Jamie and I to play with! As you can see the countryside was beautiful and we had a GREAT time driving around. It was hot just as most of the summer had already been - but just loved the AC in the car.

     We came home a little earlier than planned but spent our late afternoon at Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollow's Part 2 - What an awesome movie!!!

Get-away weekend...

...Jamie and I are heading out for 3 days for a get-away and to celebrate her graduation. In 2009 she and I went away just as Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince was released. We went to see it and then headed for Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater!

     
So...this weekend we are going to see the last installment of the Harry Potter series - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part II. So looking forward to getting away!

Is it really summer?

I've been busy the past few weeks - my daughters Prom, graduation from College and High School and Family in from out of town - it has been a whirlwind of fun. Still playing with my photo's and just realized I need to upload the photo's from the past few weeks events, a collage should do it!

There's a rumor that Spring has sprung...

I know Spring is somewhere around here under all this rain - beautiful warmth one minute, cold and rainy the next. I did have an opportunity the other day to venture out and snap some photo's. I had fun editing them in "picnik".

I had dinner with my sister this evening she is up from Florida. It was so good to be with her, I've missed her so much. Nothing like a "Big Sis" by your side.











I will be the gladdest thing
Under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers
And not pick one.

Spring is around the corner...

I was wandering around through some of my old photo's and found these Forget-Me-Nots. These tiny blue flowers have always been a favorite of mine and this time they seemed to say. "Don't forget, Spring will be here soon!"

I've been working and helping my daughter pick out colleges. She will be graduating with her Associates Degree in the Sciences and Arts in May, and in June she will graduate from High School. We are looking for a four year college for her to get her Bachelors Degree.

I haven't been taking very many photo's lately but have been playing with Zentangles:





I think I will start to "Fail Better" (Thank you Laure from Painted Thoughts ... http://paintedthoughtsblog.blogspot.com/2011/04/are-you-failing-fail-better.html) and start posting some of my drawings!

Finally!

Well I finally got a job! I started working October 6, only 5 minutes from my house. Wouldn't you know that the next day I was offered another job and on that Friday I found out about another job where I would be working with an old partner from a previous job - when it rains it pours!

I've been mildly depressed lately...I keep thinking about my age and how I have let my life slip through my fingers - how I haven't "lived" the way I had imagined - life, kept getting in the way!
