Hey everyone! I'm here, but really busy.  As you can see I've been making a few adjustments with the blog.  I do want my header to spread across the top which probably means I need to go in and adjust the HTML. Right? Anyone know a simple way to do that, or can point me in the right direction on-line to show me how.
In the meantime, enjoy the pictures below.  I donated my photography skills to a local silent auction. The high bidder has a beautiful garden.  It's been fun to walk along the flowers.  I need to go back to get the morning light...enjoy!

Links I Like

Can you feel it? No?  Well, let me explain it to you.  It the tension easing up off our shoulders.  The relief that  after today the hard part is behind us and them and the oncoming summer is almost here.  Matt will be done this afternoon and then he will be a Sophomore! (gasp! How did that happen?) and Ryan will be done with his finals (yes, he has finals as a seventh prepare him for high school...there are no words on this one.) this morning and gets to slack off at school until the 21st.
While many of you have been on summer vacation mode for what seems like months to me, we don't officially start until June 21st.  Perfect timing, seeing that  it is the first day of summer after all!
We have not made many plans so I guess I should get on that.  Must make the oldest find some sort of work, even if it's just a few hours. Baseball will take up our evenings and anything in between will, hopefully, be relaxing and fun!

So onward to the weekend!  Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there.  We will be celebrating by moving mulch...because that's what he wants to do. 

 In my quest to learn to sew better I came across this article.  I wonder if I have this attachment? I need to look.  Anyone know if they are standard with your machine supplies?
 We were hooked on watching Cupcake Wars for a few weeks.  Stands like this were common on the show, only on a much larger level.  I could see making one of these for a party! It looks pretty easy to do!
 You or the kids bored yet of summer vaca?  Here's a fun take on the T-shirt printing!
It's strawberry season around here!  Forget about the strawberry shortcake!  Make this and enjoy!

enjoy your weekend everyone!

Roller Coaster Days...

Well hello!  I didn't mean to stay away so long and probably have about three readers left, two of them being family members.  But, it is what it is and to tell you the truth, I've stayed away because I figured you didn't want to hear me go on and on about the difficulties of raising teenage boys.
The gray hair is coming in fast and furious now and my hair stylist and I are becoming good friends.  The emotions are high around here due to final exams and end of year projects.
You know what they say about that frontal lobe of the brain being slow to develop?...I think it might have stopped in my oldest's.  Geesh, it has been a frustrating time.
So I leave you with a few pictures of the last week.
The weather has been good and the activities plentiful.  
Send good thoughts that I make it through to June 15th.  
...or maybe just bottles of wine!
