this is a pic of the layout i was telling you about the other day. i love the new paper i picked up from APOS. it was perfect for this layout. i love how it turned out!
i think finally my pain streak has ended again. i so wish i knew what causes it. i have eliminated and reintroduced and been poked and prodded and examined and xray’d and no one seems to know what it is. so for now and the next 6 weeks or so i am off of course gluten and have added potato, dairy, turkey and peanut to the list.. oh and soy too!!
as for my scrappy world i am going to do an old pic for my mother in law of her dad’s father and siblings i believe it is going to be. i will, i think, use this photo for my scrapping page this month. i will sneak a post of it on here as soon as i have finished it.
as for the rest of my world, it is doing okay. work has sucked recently .. sometimes i feel as though i am in a kindergarten class. i am to old for playing silly cowboy games. maybe i just need a mental health day. perhaps money for a spa day is in order. i will have to start saving.
it is hard to believe that there are less than 30 days left until the half marathon. it is going to be a challenge for me as it doesn’t seem like i have been doing much training. yes i walk a lot but for over 3 hours!!! not in a while. My dealer, from APOS, is joining me on this journey. She says it is a just to complete event so hopefully she will enjoy it as much as i have enjoyed each one of mine. Anyway, i am registered and today is a 2hour 20minute walk for me.
i so can’t believe how many flowers have blossomed here in the last couple of days. i was out this evening and noticed a few more that i hadn’t seen earlier… a couple of miniature daffodils and a beautiful miniature purple iris. i love a purple iris. they remind me of my dad. i remember years and years ago my dad was driving me home from school i assume and i saw this purple flower thingy in the middle of the field and asked what it was. i couldn’t imagine such a pretty flower growing in the middle of no where. well he stopped the car and went and picked it and gave it to me. it was the most beautiful flower i had ever seen. i think i was perhaps nine or ten.
to this day i would have to chose them as my favorite as they so remind me of my dad. i should tell him about that…maybe i will
In July we are having a very special designer coming to visit us here at APOS!! please check out her blog
