Stumbled onto these

I spent a ridiculous amount of time organizing my “myspace” page this evening because of my inexperience and because of my dial-up speed.
Anyway while I was doing that I discovered this picture of my Roddy and realized how fast time flies when you’re just living life.
He turned 8 this October . And my grand son, Marcus will be 5 in a matter of days. I turned 47 in Oct. also and the two older dogs, Sheila and Brewer are 14 and 12 respectively. Sheila’s birthday is in January, but Brewer is in late Nov.
I can remember the first time I saw each of them and fell in love with them.

Weekend at the races

Wishful thinking 🙂 Ice Cream on a cold day More wishful thinking. Can you see that price tag?

A day at the races and classic and muscle cars. This is the culmination of an active weekend with my eldest grand child. We went to see Madagascar: escape 2 Africa on Saturday afternoon. The first 10 mins. made me laugh till I cried, it was great and a good lesson too, as all Disney movies are.

It was cold for Florida after a cold front came through on Sat. afternoon. That’s why we did the movie on Sat and the races on Sun, so we wouldn’t get rained on 😀 Nonis think ahead. We got 10 brand new Hot Wheels in packages for $1 a piece and found a vendor who was selling coffee for a civilized price of only $1 per cup, 8 oz., instead of $2 per cup. They really see you coming at these things, and then if it’s cold they have you by the chill bumps.

Anyway, we had a great weekend even though he was sick, you couldn’t tell. His cold meds. worked really well, no coughing or runny nose. Good old grape!

His Birthday is the 24 th, but we’ll be partying on the following weekend so there’ll be more pics then.

Finally finished

Actually it’s been finished, but I just didn’t get it up here until now 🙂
It turned out really nice. I’m still a little irritated with the one row that I couldn’t quite match, but it’s good and there is plenty of room to pray, it’s protable and soft to boot.
So over all I’m happy with it until I make another one 🙂

The Latest addition

Jude Valentin was born on October 25th at 4:15 ish am and is my Son, Jacques and his S.O.’s, Chenoa’s, first born and my second grand child.
Ain’t life grand sometimes.
My step Mom, Rachel, got to see him in person first since she lives just a state over and I couldn’t find a ticket at this time of year that I could afford.
At least I got to hear how well Jacques interacts with him and learned that he’s a natural. I knew Chenoa would do well just talking to her, but sometimes kids used to stress Jacques out, but he has brought his usual mellow self over to parenthood. Of course that will all change the first time they have to run to the ER with a cut or something like that. He’ll be real calm and then fall out when it’s all under control. LOL
He used to have a very calming effect on me in later years when I’d get all freaked out over something and he’d say “Mom, if it’s supposed to be, it will be, calm down!” Typical, our children are teaching us now 🙂 I’m happy to learn.
