Wild Roses

The wild roses in Alaska are in full bloom. They smell wonderful but I have bittersweet feelings when I look at them. I have been told that they mark the middle of our warm season. That is just too sad, isn't it?

The trip South was fast and fun! I loved every mile we went along from Phoenix to the Outer Banks, to Florida, then back along the coast that is now under the stress of the oil spew. I call it the oil spew rather than a spill for it is spewing, isn't it?

Besides the wonderful trip we enjoyed I am not now enjoying my husband at home much more. He has retired from the job that he worked at for so many years. I believe he said 29 years. It feels like a long weekend going on here since June 2. I love it.

Doug is not one to be idle, although every chance I get I will take a picture of him asleep! I don't see him getting "bored" any time soon. He says he just has too much to do around here and when he is done with that.. he can go up to Clear (we have land up there) and work on stuff there, not to mention work our children would like him to help with!

My sister Millie continues to recover.

Travel Plan!

Doug and I are planning a trip south! I am excited because we will be doing what I've wanted to do for so many years - see more of the United States of America! Along the way we hope to see Doug's brothers and his parents and probably some others on the east coast too.

I am excited about it. We plan to fly into Arizona, then rent a vehicle and travel east! Hopefully we will have some fantastic weather by then and enjoy an early spring south side and then come back home to spring up here too! Double blessing that makes my heart so happy!

Winter has actually gone by so fast and can you believe it! It's February! It's just amazing how fast time seems to be going. I am amazed everyday when I realized that it's not yesterday... it's today, the day after yesterday and already!!!! haha

Have a great day, it's today!

Sharing a little stuff with anyone that may stop by while I am thinking about it, and mostly after being nudged by e-Mom at Facebook.

It seems that Facebook'n has become a big thing to a lot of people, because Facebook not only is part of my every day anymore - (I am guessing) it is a big part of a lot of peoples every day; even Apps on my iPhone connect directly to Facebook, which makes it makes it fun because it's so easy to share pictures and what we are all doing directly from our phones! Crazy huh?

We have been loving our newest granddaughter Reese. What a sweetheart she is! They grow up way to fast and before too long they don't want to sit on Gramma's lap but are off finding things more interesting than my talented fingertips tapping on the table. (Fascinating to Reese right now, ha.) Reese is already four FIVE months! We've had other of our grandchildren's celebrating their birthdays, time just keeps marching on... too fast!

Here is my wallpaper picture from Klinton (Reese's Daddy). She plays in a jumper ALREADY! Doesn't this picture just make you smile? I love it!
