At the lake with my family-(that's my 87 year old grandma)
Around home; making food and eating it together.
Meeting my new brother; a child my dad fathered before he married my mom.
We found out 3 years ago, he's 46.
Flowers of the season from my walks.
Walker Art Center
Hot coffee on the deck finally cool enough to do so,
homemade caramel iced coffee,
Nells on my new Coverlet,
flowers in a vintage thermos, why not?
My new pillow I got for $1,
my new random inspiration wall in the spare room,
Nells in a pretty green vintage scarf,
my new centerpiece for the dining room table.
Impromptu day trip with Madelynn in Amish country.

More Senior pictures
Shopping with Madelynn and my niece,
me reflecting as usual,
flowers from my walk,
I know there are a couple of double in there, sorry bout that--it just gets really confusing trying to put so many pictures together, forgive me!
I also went to the Zoo a couple weeks ago and I want to share those pictures and the all the final pictures of our baby Robins, but I'll save that for another time.
Whew, it's sort of been a busy summer, I have gotten chronic fatigue quite a few times, and have it as I type this up, but I just wanted to get a post up, it had been to long! My pelvic belt has also gotten the best of me in this heat. I get a big rash, and I just can't bare to wear it. But I keep it up as best as possible. Now that is is cooling off I am wearing it non-stop again.
This week I plan on rest up quite a bit, and then I have maybe one thing planned for next weekend. And then the weekend after that we are heading on a road trip to Kansas City to see my husbands family. That will take a lot out of me, but I will rest up for it and have the week after we get back to rest. It gets so frustrating that I have to plan out my days the way I do, in order to do some of the things I want. I feel so selfish that I still wish I could do so much more. For instance for days after Madelynn's Senior picture shoot, I was down for 2 days. That can be so maddening. But I look at it like I had those 6 hours; 2 years ago I wouldn't have been able to go on the shoot at all. So I'm so thankful for that.
Tell me what you have been up to the last couple of weeks?
