Welcome to my little corner of blogland! This is the only sane spot I can come in my crazy life! :) Here I share my sometimes funny sometimes NOT-day to day insanity I call my life, along with my sweet wooly hubby & all our boys :)

If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; there is where they should be.
Now put foundations under them.

Sharing my holiday :)

I cant remember if I said before, but Luvey got a horrible blister on the bottom of his foot, and it got infected. Had to go to the ER convenient care Sat. and he has oral and topical antibiotics. (Prayers appreciated). At any rate, that put us going ANYwhere this weekend to an abrupt halt :) He has to keep it clean, dry and stay OFF of it. So we just hung out here. Pics to follow :)

I've had some time to sit back and reflect lately, and this whole healthy walking eating issue has made me stop and think of more than just that. I feel in a very good place mentally right now (LOL) and I am grateful for it. I love having my blog here, for my own benefit of putting my thoughts in order, sometimes I delete a whole entry, but the use of it is the same, to help organize ME. Ok enough deep stuff, on to our pics :)

Our central "hub" for the day. Hubby bbq'd out back, then it got turned into the "pits" for rc car racing :)

Closer view of their "toys". As you can see Hawger got his cast off, he is turning his leg in a bit and curling his toes. Need to call the ortho and mention that tomorrow. He also dressed himself today LOL shirt too small, shorts too big.

I love your bike! After not having been near a bike, let alone *on* one, in at least 15 years, I bought a $10 Schwinn 10-speed from an old guy here in Lemmon who rehabilitates old bikes. It's in great shape, the price was right.

I could not believe how uncoordinated I was on it! I keep thinking I was going to fall right off, couldn't watch traffic and where I was going at the same time! Fortunately, there *is* no traffic here. Then my DH asked me to get off so he could see something.

Things don't bend as well as they once did and I didn't get my leg high enough. That caused me to fall, and the bike bounced off my ankle bone. I laughed, because I fell in the grass under the tree, missed the roots sticking out of the ground, and didn't break anything. But the bone still hurts, 2 months later, and the bruise covered the whole side of my foot for 3 weeks, in lovely colors.

Not many people can say they fell off the bike when it wasn't even moving! But at Gettysburg, I fell off a bench that wasn't moving, either, so what can I say.
