Mosaic Monday

It's Monday and that means it's time for a mosaic! This is just a little mosaic from the race that I did on Saturday. I had my little point and shoot with me while walking. It was a really hot day but I had alot of fun doing this race and hope to do more in the future. Is it just me or does it seem really hard to keep up with the computer during the Summer? I am going to try and visit everyone this week, I really am. Not much else going on right now, I bought some fresh corn and tomatoes from a roadside stand yesterday and they were so good. The white corn was picked that morning and was just so sweet and for some reason I have been going crazy over tomatoes this summer. I just love all the fresh produce during the Summer. Happy Monday everyone and I'll be around to visit ya"ll soon. Oh, I am number 2003 in the photo, LOL.......

I'm Doing a Race.........

Okay I am not actually doing any bike riding but this was the only photo that the race site would let me upload. LOL And I am not actually doing any running either.... but I am walking in a race tomorrow morning for an event here in Cincinnati called the Hyde Park Blast. I went today and picked up my chip and my number. All proceeds go to charity so I am looking forward to doing it. It's only a four mile walk through a really beautiful area of Cincinnati. Now if I can find my over to the other side of town at a really early time in the morning. LOL I will have my little point and shoot(I am a serious athlete) so hopefully I can take a few photos.
Wasn't yesterday a totally crazy day with the death of Farrah and Michael Jackson? And to top it off we had one of the worst storms I can remember in the middle of the night. I have never seen such lightning before. Anyway, I really meant to post more this week but the week totally got away from me. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and stay cool!

Mosaic Monday ~ Father's Day ~

Did you guys know about Mosaic Monday? I found out about it from Jeanne's blog and you all know how much I love making collages. LOL Anyway Mary from Little Red House is the hostess so go over here and take a look at her beautiful photography and everyone who is playing. This is just a little mosaic of Father's Day this year, with my son and my husband and my Dad and some extra photos of the grandbabies running around yesterday. Hope everyone had a great day and I am going to try and do this every week because I do have the need to make mosaics and this will fill that need. :-) Hope you are staying cool, it's hot and humid here.

Brenda's Photo Challenge ~ Using Macro~

Hi Guys! I decided to join in on Brenda's Photo Challenge at the last minute(like this morning). It's time to join the land of the living again or as I like to say put on my big girl panties and get on with life and you all have been a big part of my life and I am sorry if I have not been there for you all lately. So here's my photos for the challenge, I really would like to get more into macro photography, I think it is so cool. These are old photos but I especially love the water drop one because you can see the reflection in the water drops. Not sure if these are true macro shots but they are as close as I can come.
Hope you all have a great weekend. It's a steamy one here in Ohio! I will be around to check out everyone's photos but first it's off to shop(retail therapy) today. Have a good one!

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun!

All my girls were over on Sunday afternoon. My daughters and granddaughters, my niece Stephanie and my daughter Christina's best friend Molly all came over. That's alot of girls! LOL They wanted to swim but strong storms came through and the water in the pool is only in the 70's so they played in the puddles after the storm instead. Little Sydney is now walking(go Sydney!!!) she loved splashing in the puddles.

Okay does anyone else think it's funny that Maddie is wearing her swimmies on her arms to splash in the puddles? It just cracks me up................ :-) That's Molly's dog Cooper wanting to join in on the fun!

This is totally off the subject and should have been at the end of this post but blogger gave me a fit with photos today. This is my new mailbox and I just wanted to show you how pretty it is. LOL My sweet son-in-law helped me put it up. I got it at Homegoods(love that store) for such a great price. Anyway totally doesn't relate to this post but hey I wanted you to see it. LOL

Here's another photo of Maddie wearing her swimmies in the puddles. I guess you never know when you might need them.

Even big girls like splashing around in puddles.................

Christina and Sydney playing..................

There's something about Summer storms that I love. Hope everyone is having a great week!

Up and my new lawn care service...........

So Gommy(me) took my granddaughter Maddie to see her first big girl movie in a theatre yesterday. She will be three in August so I wasn't sure how she would do for the first time. She was so excited the whole way to the theatre, she kept saying"I go to movie and eat popcorn and drink juice" LOL When we went into the semi dark theatre she was a little scared and jumped up in my lap until she felt more comfortable and then she decided that she could handle sitting in her own seat(which by the way she could hardly weigh down because she's so little). But she loved every minute of watching the big screen and eating popcorn. I think I had more fun watching her face as she watched this cute movie. What a sweet movie this is and if you have any little ones or just like to see something cute and fun yourself, go and see this film. When we left I asked her if she liked going to the movies and she told me that she wanted to go again so I took that as a yes. :-) I was going to take a photo of her sitting in the theatre but I didn't think the other people watching the show would be too happy with a flash going off like that. I am glad she likes going to the movies because it has always been one of my favorite things to do.

And here's my new lawn care service. LOL She works hard for all of two minutes and then................

it's time to stop and run down the hill..........hope everyone is having a good week. I plan on catching up with you all soon. Take care and have a great day!

Still Here...........

I'm still here and haven't fallen off the face of the Earth just yet, I just have alot going on in my life right now so I will probably not post as much as I usually do. I so appreciate all the prayers and emails you all have sent me. You ALL are such blessings in my life and I thank God for all of you. So here's my grandbaby photo post of the week. LOL You know I can't do a post without some grandbabies in them. My son Jim and I took Cameron to visit Aunt Christina at work this week and he had a great time playing on the computers and keyboards. What is it about keyboards that little kids love? :-) I hope you all are doing well and have a wonderful weekend!
