Life Lately ... and To make you heart smile! :)

Hi Friends,


I'm more than a little behind with my blog.  My apologies!!  I've been quite busy with Volleyball (coaching and playing), trying to learn the guitar, getting my Scuba Diving certification, chaperoning dances, work, Halloween shenanigans and sleep!  :)  I'll try my very best to get back in the swing of things - 1 new blog a week!  





Writing Prompt:

Q:  What would life be like if everyone lived in space?

"If everyone lived in space they would line in a space shuttle.  Each family would have different rooms.  They would wear shiny clothes.  They boys would wear silver blue or red suits.  Girls would wear different colors.  They would wear blue, pink, yellow, and purple suits.  All girls should wear ponytails or pigtails.  They would only wear the big air tight suits if they go out of the space shuttle.  Humans would eat food with no colors or liquid.  They would all get high tech gadgets.  They could ride small rockets, but they need their rocket flying licence first.  They could fly their rocket to earth where they could meet their friends or relatives."



My first weekend back, we helped Amy and Steven get married!!  :)  So fun!

I love these flowers - they are my favorite here!

We found the secret place - bushes loaded with berries - JACKPOT!!

Ok, friends, I'm off to bed.  I have many more pictures to come - but this is all the post (and the hour) will allow.  I hope you have had a lovely Veteran's Day!

Love,
