party people


it is raining so there is no natural light to take pictures...

of the preparations for the big graduation party this weekend

the stack of mulch...the geraniums to be planted...the weeds to be pulled

the edging to be done

{come to think of it, who wants to see those pictures?}


so here are some {more!} pictures of our graduate

these are the professional ones

as vivid as her eyes are, we bought the black and white for our living room
{go figure!}

and me?  i've been down with a cold turned sinus infection...then muddled through our team retreat for Alaska this past weekend...{hey, Beth! thanks for introducing yourself when you saw me at church!}...i just noticed, while eating a soft granola bar this morning, that i have a chipped filling

but i ordered the food, ordered the BIG cake (with her kindergarten picture on it), and bought a new straw tote this morning

oh yes, and see my new picture over there?  i am now a true mistake, but i think i'm loving it.  feel like i look less weary.

alrighty, life is calling.

hope the sun is shining wherever you are

and if it's not...go buy a new straw and leather tote

i think i heard the beach when i looked inside it
