New things in the making and just Fun

OK, so I have a picture of a naked hanging MANakin, as my girls spell it.. Well we found this fine fellow, and I was looking for a new one to hang for my aprons.. well I could not figure out if he would work or not, so for $12.00, it was a no brainer, I put him in the cart and off went.. My girls decided that we could decorate him, and with an apron on, you would not be able to tell it was a MANakin.. They decided that since he would be wearing an apron, we would call him a Sheman (sha-man)  :) They are funny.. I will keep you posted on how he turns out.
Well it is the end of the school year here and we are super busy with school, musicals, young authors night, and baseball, and softball.. Well at the moment we are doing a LOT of make up games...

Carly after sliding practice in the mud.. IT was the most fun she ever had!

Sampson enjoying a NO rain day with a great stick he found in the yard.

He is still loving it....

Still loving it.. as we are laughing at him..

He does not find this funny at all.

A picture of the beautiful blue sky and the pretty trees in our yard.

A day warm enough to wear flip flops, well sorta...

Talking to my son out side and catching up

Watching my 5th grader go  up in a balloon ride at school..

It was awesome!  We have one more week of school, and with no daily schedules to keep, I will start on that HUGE stock pile I have growing in the garage.  Also this is weekend is our city wide yard sales, so I am getting ready to do that as well, in between games that is. 
Hope you all are having a great May.

Birthday Wishes to Heaven

Happy Birthday Mamaw.. This lady here in this picture was my whole heart.  She raised me and loved me like there was no tomorrow.  She taught me right from wrong, she taught me forgiveness, how to love, she taught me life!  She made me laugh, smile and feel secure..

Even though one day I know I will meet up with her again, and she has been gone for almost 10 years, she is still the first person I want to call when something good happens, or bad happens.. The person I wish most in the world I could spend 5 mintues with to tell her how much I love her and how much she meant to me.  That even though we talked every day, and told each other every day that we loved each other, it was still not enough!  I wish my kids would of got to know her better, boy they would of loved her too much, like me :) Now we are lucky to get her to watch over us daily, and even though she is not here physically, she is still in my heart and still watching over me, for that I am so blessed.
I'm thinking of you today Mamaw, and everyday. I thank God for you, and for blessing me with you in my life.  I hope the angels are singing you a wonderful Happy Birthday Song, you deserve it!  I love you, Shelly May :)

Vertigo and George is visiting my house...

OK, so it is me or does it seem that even in this day and time, it still seems a little taboo to talk about your period?  Well mine have gotten worse each month.. and I am have the spent the entire day in bed, drugged up on Pamprin.. I think I took too many and I have splet all day! 
What a waste of time!  I should be sewing, and creating today and I a in bed with my "monthly visitor" that in Jr. High we girls use to say "George is visiting" so the boys would not know what we were talking about.. Well I have  come to hate George, lol... 
My Gyno says that I need to have my uterus lining  burned out, can't remember the exact name of that procedure, but I am wondering if any of you have had that done?  I know it stops the periods, but how are things afterwards?  I have heard good and bad... Please share....

As if that is not enough,  I have a touch of vertigo.. OK, this so sucks!  Sorry for being so blunt, but it does.  I think I have a inner ear infectin that has not cleared up and I have been having bouts of Vertigo for the past two weeks and it has been terrible!  I am calling the doctor tomorrow to see what else we can do.  The dizzy meds they gave me knock me out big time.  Just no fun...Sorry to complain ladies.. Sorry for the boring blog post too.. I hope I will back to my old self soon.  Hope you all are doing well... Any info on the burning of the uterus lining would be great..or vertigo and hey, what do you call your period?  Someone make me smile please!

Take Care,

Neat internet finds

I bought this print a while back off etsy.. I can't remember the artist.. but I just fell in love with it.. Little did I realize that seeing umbrella's this spring would be a part of our everyday look!  I live in Cincinnati and we have had so much rain, and crazy weather it has been terrible.
I am still around, just have not been able to complet any new project outside due to the lovely cold weather and Rain.. sigh.. Soon I will be back up and running.. Hope you all have a great Mother's day this weekend too!
