Is anybody else tired of the summer season yet? I don't think I am, I think I'm just tired, lol.
My polymer clay came in and do you think I've had time to do anything with it? Right... no, lol. I'm shooting for some play time when the kids are all back in school again next month. I also broke down & bought an elliptical. I've even been a good girl & have been getting on it 3-4 times a week! Now... if I could just kill/cure my popcorn chicken and tots cravings every couple of weeks... LOL
4th of July... yes I might have spent a little too much money, but we had a lot of fun!
(The dog was not very appreciative, though!)
My mom hasn't been able to travel in a couple of years, so she sent me to Jules J Berta Vineyard in Albertville to pick up a case of wine for her since we only live an hour and a half away. JD came with (he had nothing better to do). They have a nice little shop that I wish I had had more time to peruse! Next time. And there will be a next time... they're in the process of making a cranberry wine that Mom wants to stock up on again (I've had it, it's really good!)
On the way to the vineyard, we passed through Guntersville... It's really pretty out there, and the lake looks fabulous! JD took these pictures for me because, ya know, I was driving........ and yelling at him to "take a picture of that!"
Last week we headed down to my parent's house for a week-long visit so I could help my Mom out. Caroline and Nick stayed behind because they both had to work. It was just me & the boys... and one very excited copilot, who has learned about the awesomeness of drive thru windows and pet-friendly rest areas, LOL!
The next prompt is a lotus flower :/ That's it for this month... I didn't take as many pictures as I wanted, as usual. I used to be so picture-takey-all-the-time, and now I'd rather be one of those enjoy-the-moments type people (it's more fun and less stressful LOL)
