This morning when I was getting dressed I said to myself: i love my freckles, they are fabulous and I want more.
I treated myself to an afternoon treat after a bunch of running, photos, and chores.
I've never made meatballs and I've never purchased ground turkey...so I took a leap and made turkey meatballs tonight. Man, oh man were they yummy! Just some spices and mozzarella cheese and TA-DA, wonderfulness!
Look at this lazy bones. Sleeps the day away, but at least she finds the best spots in the house. She's like the princess and the pea on top of Grandpa's rocker, 2 of Grandma's quilts and a throw blanket.
I've been flirting with the idea of purchasing my own home. The more I think about it the more excited I get, although I must admit that I'm scared. I wanted to buy a house 3 years ago, so I put in an offer and 3 days later I got laid off. The house was ideal in my eyes, so if I do decide to buy there's going to be pretty high standards. So to distract myself I've been decorating a house that doesn't exist.
I really enjoy these colors. I'm thinking for the kitchen.
What a wonderful bathroom. I might go with blues and white, but either way...wonderful.
These lines yell at me: THE CLOTHES ARE SO FRESH AND SO CLEAN CLEAN!!!
I love the clean cabinets, sink, hardware, and appliances.
The colors are great, the window herb garden, and light fixtures.
A table that demands board games, laughter, and fights.
I adore this storage. I appreciate innovation, resourcefulness, and simplicity.
Different shades of blue, white, some green and maybe yellow. I'm ready for bed.
I want my next room to be a sanctuary. Right now my room is extra storage and stuffy. Too much bulky furniture in a small space.
I don't care what else is in my living room as long as I have a fireplace.
And of course a cozy outdoor space. Even if this were under a tree I'd be ok with that.
Camp Euforia rocked my socks off this year. The people, the food, the music. Everyone keeping the camp grounds so clean was amazing. I didn't have much time to shoot photos this year because I was just having way too much fun, but this is what I did get.
I love all my stuff on the porch just crammed into my sweet market basket; which helped quite a few people out might I add!
Day 7 - A song that reminds you of a certain event
We sang this song at my high school graduation and the foreign exchange student and I had solos in it. I remember looking out at my class mates and realizing this is the last time we'll all be together. I remember people crying and smiling, talking amongst themselves, it was a very surreal experience.
This song reminds me of my grandmothers, Saundra Kimbley and Judy Rothman-Drake. The true loves of my life and lights of my being. Always the structure and heart of the family. Both had the best stories, the best food, great conversation, strength and loved their family.
Day 4- A song that makes you sad This song doesn't require a lot of explanation if you've heard it before. I can't think of more of a reason to be sad than knowing you'e wasted your life away, never saw the people around you, held their hand, or touched their face. And most of all regretting your life.
One day I want to be a farmer. Yes, yes I do. I lived on a farm with my grandparents for 4 year, fed calves, weeded the garden, picked fresh tomatoes that were cut and went straight on the dinner table. One day I want to have chickens, can food, and be pretty self sufficient. This video makes me sad that things that should be applauded are being reprimanded for using the earth as it was intended to be used.
I really dislike this song. The lyrics are dumb and he's so smug I don't know where to smack him or smack him with both hands. Meet a really nice girl, have some really nice sex. Really? You're an idiot.
I didn't know how I felt could be bottled and then sung to the point of tears.
You'll never know, if you never try
To forgive your past, and simply be mine dare you to let me be, your
Your one and only
Promise I'm worth it
To hold in your arms
So come on
And give me a chance
To prove I am the one who can
Walk that mile
Until the end starts
I love facebook notes. 1012 questions about George, 13 truths, festival updates, ragbrai teams coordinating. Once in awhile I come across notes that I actually want to do and this is it! MUSIC...it lists days 1 through 30 with directions of what to post each day and why the song fits with the criteria. Here we go!
Day 1 - Your favorite Song
This song is my favorite because it says every thing I can't say. It always makes me smile and it makes me think of how oddly perfect my relationship with my friends and family are. Things really are better when we're together.
The first chorus pretty much sums it up: There is no combination of words I could put on the postcard.
And no song that I could sing, but I can try because this is your heart and this is. Our dreams and they are made out of real things.
Oh man...I love it so much. I got to see him last August in Kansas and being their with my best friend and her sister in law made it perfect. Really it was better together.
It's been awhile since I've posted a garden update. These were taken July 4th so they're still a little behind, but trust me there's plenty more to come. Watermelon, green beans, zucchini, corn, jalapenos, peppers, cucumber, onion, big boy tomatoes, early girl tomatoes, roma tomatoes, and orange peppers. I can't wait for harvest!!
cucumber rolling out the red carpet.
my corn is doing splendid. knee high by the 4th of july? not a problem.
my cat joined in, but not exactly to help.
i can't wait for zucchini for some homemade zucchini bread.
