h e l l o L o v e l i e s !
i hope that you are a well and raring to go on this Monday morning!
i am easing my way back into blog land.
i just have to share a couple things that happened while i was away.
Chrislyn posted this precious announcement . . .
the number "3" is very big around here!
we're e l a t e d !
my son, Jay won a regional Edward R. Murrow award for his story
about a homeless college football recruit.
the story went national, and the NCAA allowed Antoine to arrive to
"the Blue", (Boise State University), a little earlier so he would have a home.
on a silly note . . .
Saturday afternoon, i took my first "selfie".
( i have been very resistant to this phenomenon. )
i forgot to remove my polka dot readers from the top of my head.
but . . .
what the heck, this is me.
my readers are never farther than a reach away. i refuse to wear them around my neck.
i will just call them my crown!
on the first image i clicked on a filter on my phone called magic.
( hmmmmm . . . it sorta softened up those fine lines.)
# 2 is the real deal, complete with the popcorn ceiling.
we live a Jimmy Carter inspired stereotypical Pacific Northwest Contemporary
energy miser home built in 1979. we thought that we would only be here
five or six years. the babies came, and five years later, i left my career to be at home and
work part time as a para educator at their elementary school.
then there was college for two.
we may not have fancy, but lovelies, i wake up every day and i feel good!
my mantra is . . .
"this may not be the house of my dreams, but it's a house of so many dreams true!"
and, speaking of the past!
forty two years ago today, i married Mr D!
i have been with him twice a many years as i lived before him.
( we married at 21. )
on Saturday he told me exactly what i was wearing the night he met me.
i still remember "what i wore" too!
