Despite the bad news in Puerto Rico, California and other places I will try to provide my list of likes for this week in the hopes you will feel good:
My pride in my 2 grandsons now in the Army.
My son married their mom about 11 years ago and I have never met 2 nicer, polite young men. I am so proud of them. And glad they are not overseas. Their mom is a stronger woman than I to have her only kids both in the Army at the same time. I always worried about my Marine son for many years till he retired.
Vacationing for 4 days in Payson Az with my daughter's family.
I have to tell you- being away from the heat for 4 days with not much tv, and smart phones not working due to location in the woods was fantastic. I recommend it highly. We stayed at a cabin and took small trips during the day to other towns, lakes, fall festivals and FOOD. At night, we lit a campfire as well as a bbq for our dinners in the cabin. We also had plenty of downtime sitting on the porch doing absolutely nothing in beautiful surroundings.
Warning: heavy photo layout ahead.
Hope these Iphone photos provide as much fun for you as we had:
Last- but my favorite photo was my view from the bedroom when I was doing my Yoga each morning. I wish I could enlarge it to fit the arcadia door in my home bedroom. LOL
Making some "coffee' place mats for the dining table. They coordinate with my fabric back splash cause they are made from leftover fabric:
I cut the rest of the panel pieces into separate place mats with added scraps to match.
As an FYI- I changed the "https" security box on my Blogger setting to "yes" for a more secure site and recommend ya'll do the same due to the many Internet hackings lately. If you are not using Blogger, I don't know how you would accomplish that secure set up but I'm sure you could "google" it.
Thanks for dropping by and please join us at Lee Anna's blog for more likes:Not Afraid of Color.
Have a great week!
