These are a few of my favorite things this week
Art Class taught by Debbie
Some of class projects
Oldest grandson's 22nd birthday.  He is a wonderful young man
Basil resting after coming home from the doggie hospital.  She is  recovering  from Parvo
A pedi lifts my spirits
And now some snaps from around my front yard

And a couple of beautiful sunrises.  I try and take them in on my way to the gym each morning.


Each week, Hilary at Feeling Beachie lists four statements with a blank for you to fill in on your own blogs. If you want to join the fun and come up with four fill in’s of your own, please email them to her at If she uses them, she will add you as co-host to the hop! 
1. The last time I was on vacation, I went to _Olympic National Park, Victoria B.C, and Oregon__
2. For _breakfast__I like to eat__Mini Shredded Wheat Cereal_
3. My heart hurts when__I think of my Mom_because_she was such a wise woman with a great sense of humor_.
4. Why must _I have to drive so far_ just to__see my children. It would be so nice if they just lived across town.


  1. My kids(daughters) live in town and we don't see them often because of their work schedules. Right DS lives at home, but he's now in college so his days are numbered. They grow up so fast, don't they? We have always wanted to see the Pacific Northwest. Maybe one day we can!

  2. love the flower pics....what's that purple one? it's gorgeous.
    Love the Mini Wheats!! it's my go-to breakfast cereal too. except when the kid in me wants Lucky Charms. ha.

    I think my mom would most heartedly agree with your #4.

  3. I completely agree with your #4 and I love your pictures.... have a great weekend Marti!

  4. My grandchildren live out of town. We miss them but there is so much joy when we can get together. Thank goodness for SKYPE! I am also able to visit my Mom who lives out of town.

  5. Victoria BC is really a pretty place.

  6. #3 and #4 really resonate with me, Marti. Nice photos in the post. You have a handsome grandson! (and nice feet) :-) I am glad Basil is recovering.♥

  7. I remember when my kids were living far away, it was like having an empty spot in my heart that phone calls and text messages couldn't adequately fill. I'm so glad they're back home now.

    Have a blessed weekend!

  8. I hear you about driving far... my mom lives in Florida and some of our best friends live across the country
