looks a lot like me...

the pixie drew a picture of me...

there are many mornings my hair looks just like this.... 

and there are some days that i am wide eyed as shown ...

and there are moments that i feel like my arms are missing hands 

and coming out of the place my ears should be

and then there are days i do walk like my legs have no feet and they are coming out of my chin

i love that she sees me with a big ole smile and no torso (hence the smile)


there were a few inaccuracies 

 there is no part of my body that resembles sticks or straight lines

nor do i have a cute little button nose like the one she gave me

and i need glasses...

but other than that...she is right on

button, button...where do they go?

"what happens to the buttons on your shirts?", i ask the hubs...
his reply...."i don't know, check the dryer"
he also blames the dryer for missing socks and for shrinking his clothes...
(the dryer & the attic have both been accused of causing his clothing to no longer fit)
and all this time i was blaming twinkies & bowls of lucky charm cereal 

mending....do you mend or get rid of?

i mend when i can although i will admit,
 people have outgrown various pieces of clothing
before i get around to it 
some even graduating from high school

mending isn't high on my priority list...unless it's something i want to wear right now
and if that's the case, i have been known to sew a button on a shirt while wearing it 
you've done that right?

do you take buttons off old shirts before turning it into a rag?
oh tell me i'm not the only one that does that...

yea...i didn't think so

sunflowers & blue skys~

we headed to yellow springs

to see a field of sunflowers 

it made us happy to just to stand among them

it really was breathtaking

the skies were as blue as the sunflowers were yellow

the bee's were busy

just look at those happy faces

sunflowers work that kind of magic on you

it was one of my favorite days this summer
