Welcome to Anybody Home!

Here you will find scattered pictures from my point and shoot camera, random thoughts from my little world, treasured memories of days gone by, hopeful dreams of the days yet to come, and a bunch of ideas - because I've always got ideas!

Would You Look At This?

 Look closely at the top three pictures.  It is a bunch of daffodils growing THROUGH a dried up leaf.
 I find this amazing.  Wouldn't you think that the daffodils would have just pushed the leaf up?  Or that the wind, and it has been very windy, would have blown it off?
 But, no.  New life pushes right on up through the dead.  And death makes way.
So much to ponder about this.., so much to ponder...

Spring Break Is Over

 Spring Break is over and I haven't posted any pictures yet.  I've been a bit slow lately.  Two weekends ago I fell in our garage.  I think I'm beginning to get around better.  But you know me, not one to complain!  Since it was Monday today, we made things!  Who knew how much fun it was to add googly eyes and playdoh!  Did you know?  Sometimes I think I'm the last person to hear about fun stuff like this.  So if you didn't know, now you do!  And even if you do not have little people around, get some playdoh and some googly eyes for yourself.  Are there any careers that revolve around making things out of playdoh?  Because once these kids are all in school, I'm going to need something to do.  And I think I really like making things out of playdoh and googly eyes better than just about anything.

Family Circa 1984

Yup.  This was us.  Youngest Son just turned 30, so this must be about 29 1/2 years ago.

Now when the "whole family" gets together their are 14 of us.

Although I enjoyed this time in my life immensely, I absolutely love having adult children.

I am wondering just when the dirty piles of snow will melt.  May?

March 31st - the first day this year it was warm enough to play OUTSIDE.  THGGM took ALL the grandkids outside where they had a blast playing with the neighbor kids that they hadn't seen since November.

I Made Stuff

 This weekend I found a bunch of unrelated stuff laying around in my kitchen (i also found a dead bat, but that's a story for another day).
So while THGGM rested on the couch Friday evening I got out the double-sided tape and a heart punch.  Then some really cute wooden cut-out birds fell out of a bag and away I flew with them.

 This is what I ended up with, and I kinda/sorta like it!
