Day 188, Tuesday, July 7, 2015

I went shopping today and did a whole lot of errands.  I have been looking for "tiger" ribbon for a project at school.  Jackpot!

Day 187, Monday, July 6, 2015

Cindy came to scrapbook with me today.  We had a great time just chatting.  We haven't seen each other since our last day to work on June 12.  This box of photos was stuffed full when I started summer break!

Day 186, Sunday, July 5, 2015

Nate and Brittany's trailer.  He cut the grass today.

Day 185, Saturday, July 4, 2015

I am still not feeling well.  I think I am running a fever, still.  I took this picture of a sunflower in our neighborhood the other day.

Day 184, Friday, July 3, 2015

I am staying home and drinking my water today.  I went to the doctor yesterday and I have a really bad bladder infection.

Day 183, Thursday, July 2, 2015

Nate and Brittany needed a box spring.  I found this one at our thrift shop, asked Rob to bring the truck and we took it to him this afternoon.

Day 182, Wednesday, July 1, 2015

Peyton came to visit me this afternoon.  We played monopoly on the ipad.  He won.

Day 181, Tuesday, June 30, 2015

I took my mom a cold drink and we worked a puzzle this morning.  She is doing very well!

Day 180, Monday, June 29, 2015

This is one of my favorite pictures of Peyton. He loves all things Spider-man!  I have been scrapping pictures from 2008 and 2009.

Day 179, Sunday, June 28, 2015

Jim and I worked most of the day putting our house back together after moving the kids out.  Our table and chairs were in storage.

Day 178, Saturday, June 27, 2015

We have loaded up the truck, trailer, my car, Jim's car, Nate's car and Brittany's car with their furniture and belongings.  The storage unit is almost empty!

Day 177, Friday, June 26, 2015

I changed my dad's profile picture today.  He had a selfie and you couldn't really see his face it was so dark.  Today was also the day we took my mom to the nursing home.  She has dementia and he can no longer take care of her.

Day 176, Thursday, June 25, 2015

Nate and Brittany are moving out!  They bought a trailer in Bellevue.

Day 175, Wednesday, June 24, 2015

I have been doing a lot of scrap booking since I am off work for 6 weeks for summer break. Coco will bring me a toy and we will play for a while.  He will lay down for about 30 minutes and he is back after me with another toy! 

Day 174, Tuesday, June 23, 2015

Went to the car wash today.  I vacuumed out the inside and the inside of the trunk.  I also cleaned the windows and all of the dash and doors!

Day 173, Monday, June 22, 2015

I have been digging through some old pictures.  Since yesterday was Father's Day, I posted this one of my dad and I.

Day 172, Sunday, June 21, 2015

Today is Father's Day.  We didn't have big plans for today.  We went to dinner with Rob, Cyndi, Peyton, Mother and Pop at Kouri's.  Happy Father's Day!

Day 171, Saturday, June 20, 2015

I only have one of this type of hosta plant.  This year the leaves are so big!

Day 170, Friday, June 19, 2015

My lilies were bent over laying on the ground.  We bought some bamboo stakes and I used some twist tie wire to help support the weight of the stems.

Day 169, Thursday, June 18, 2015

Jim and I went to Bloomington to exchange our IPASS.  We got a letter stating the receiver needed to be replaced.  We stopped at Jewel to switch it out.  We ate lunch and did a little shopping.

Day 168, Wednesday, June 17, 2015

I have been using my Kiwi Lane Design templates for my scrapbook pages.  I found some clips to hang them up on the shelf behind me.  They are within easy reach now!

Day 167, Tuesday, June 16, 2015

Coco had to get a shot today.  He is really droopy.

Day 166, Monday, June 15, 2015

Today was Jordan's first day of surf camp.  They are at Myrtle Beach.  He looks like he has been surfing his whole life!

Day 165, Sunday, June 14, 2015

I have been collecting Golden paints for my art journal.  These paints are the best for keeping the color so bright even if you use water to thin them out.

Day 164, Saturday, June 13, 2015

I planted a ton of bulbs about 3 years ago.  This flower is the only one that came up this year from this group of bulbs.  I am not sure if the cold weather or the moles have destroyed my bulbs.

Day 163, Friday, June 12, 2015

Cindy and I have been working outside off and on this week between the rain and heat.  We have put fresh mulch in the landscape beds.  We also added the rock border to help hold the material in place.

Day 162, Thursday, June 11, 2015

I was so afraid this frog was going to jump on me!  I have been trying to take better pictures with my iphone 6.  Becky Higgins has been posting a lot of tips and tricks.  She says to place the camera with the eye as close to the ground to get an up close photo.

Day 161, Wednesday, June 10, 2015

Marla is 3 months old today.  Nate got some clay and made her footprint.  She had her print made at 6 weeks when she went to the vet.  Oh my, Marla is going to be huge!

Day 160, Tuesday, June 9, 2015

John and Stacie are in Las Vegas with a group of their friends.  Stacie posted this picture on Facebook this afternoon!  Winner, winner, chicken dinner!

Day 159, Monday, June 8, 2015

Coco has been having some problems with eating his food.  Since Marla has come to live with us, he hasn't been eating on a regular schedule.  This morning he gobbled up the food in his dish!  Good boy, Coco!

Day 158, Sunday, June 7, 2015

Jim and I ate lunch at Flattop Grill.  We haven't been here for a long time.  They have changed the food line and how they organize the selections.  We did some errands as well.

Day 157, Saturday, June 6, 2015

Nate and Brittany planted the herbs that were started from seeds.  The basil is doing really great.  Not sure the other herbs are going to make it!

Day 156, Friday, June 5, 2015

I took pictures of Mr. Potato Head in the various stages of completion.  We have a program for our students at school to promote attendance.  We are making a bulletin board to capture the "No Tardy Taters".

Day 155, Thursday, June 4, 2015

Aja and Riley came to school to visit with Jen.  They are so cute and love to visit Grandma Cindy!  They brought their Shopkins and showed us all a thing or two about their collection.

Day 154, Wednesday, June 3, 2015

My lilies are so pretty this year.  I love how bright the color is right now.  We have had so much rain, they are about 3 feet tall.

Day 153, Tuesday, June 2, 2015

Our card swap group never lets me down.  There is so much creative talent in this bunch of girls!

Day 152, Monday, June 1, 2015

Our Chirpin' Chicks card swap group went to Panera in East Peoria for dinner.  I have been waiting for the Strawberry, Chicken and Poppyseed salad to be on the menu!  Love this salad!

Day 151, Sunday, May 31, 2015

John, Stacie and I went to paint a canvas at Sugar this afternoon.  Vino Van Gogh is the company who hosted the event.  We painted a 16x20 canvas of an abstract guitar.

Day 150, Saturday, May 30, 2015
