I love tomatoes, especially fresh out of the garden. Usually when you grow your own, you have an abundance of them. I really like how they displayed these. What a great idea. Simple, fresh,and edible..what can be better....


I like how these are not on stands

Finally Rain Today after 85 days of No Rain

Thought this was perfect for Today....

Whatever your cross, whatever your pain, there will always be sunshine, after the rain .... Perhaps you may stumble, perhaps even fall, But God's always ready, To answer your call ... He knows every heartache, sees every tear, A word from His lips, can calm every fear ... Your sorrows may linger, throughout the night, But suddenly vanish, in dawn's early light ... The Savior is waiting, somewhere above, To give you His grace, and send you His love .. Whatever your cross, whatever your pain, "God always sends rainbows .... after the rain ... "

New Goal

Another goal before I am 38 is to learn Calligraphy....One of my customers is an expert Calligrapher. I wished he lived closer, so he could teach me...He also speaks fluently in Latin. Interesting Chap...He has a lot of talents I would like to learn....He will have a online store shortly for all of you crafting needs. All well made products. When it opens I will post his website...

Burning Man

Every year at the end of August Northern Nevada begins to have the strangest things begin to roll into town. They invade our stores, our parking lots are filled with unuasully decorated cars, trucks and RVs that are loaded with decorated bikes and other what not's. The buy out all of our water supplies, all for a 1 weeks stay in the middle of the desert. There is no trees, no beautiful mountains, no bubbly brooks, just dirt. These people come from all over the world and pay at least $200.00 just for a spot in dirt...Sound FUN... Here is an example of some of the strange things we see.;

Aren't I cuttttte!!!
Any one for a snack.............
Your mother must be so proud.....
an occasional bride a groom...

I just sitting here wondering how Brayden & Ashlynn are doing. I cannot wait till I get off from work to find out how their first day was...

End of Summer Days!

Summer Days Are GONE......I am kind of sad. We had such a fun summer. We swam almost every day, The kids have really learned how to swim well this summer. We had fun BB Q's with our neighbors, roasted marshmallows with our mini bonfire's (with bun son burners) at the Marina. Went on lots of hike's, had lots of fun doing FHE with my sisters and mom where the kids made us play charades and do silly games. We played games of scrabble at the pool while the kids swam...Kellie always won....One day I will beat her!!! It went by way to fast. Jarrod and I never made it up to the Lake Tahoe, but the girls were able to go a few times, with the bishop's family... Today When I dropped the kids off for there first day of School. I was a little sad. It was so carefree with no schedule, that I really like it. I guess that is what Summer Days are all about.....

Snickers and Little Bear!
