Another Ashy Post... =)

Meggan just emailed me these photos of Ashton. They took him to the "Splash Pad" tonight. These photos are too darn cute! I can not get enough of this little bugger. He was so cute earlier today when I had him. I smacked my head on the corner of I don't even remember what now - LOL! But anyway, he rubs his head, says owie (sympathy pains???) and then came and gave me a hug and a kiss and patted my back. It was SO cute!!! I swear a kiss and a hug from him can fix just about anything =)

Gotta Love Little Boys... This is too darn CUTE!

Two young boys walked into a pharmacy one day, picked out a box of tampons and proceeded to the checkout counter. The man at the counter asked the older boy, "Son , how old are you?." "Eight", the boy replied. The man continued, "Do you know what these are used for?" The boy replied, "Not exactly, but they aren't for me. They're for him. He's my brother. He's four. We saw on TV that if you use these you would be able to swim and ride a bike. Right now, he can't do either one."

Lavender & Pink Strawberries

Are these cute or what? I love 'em! These sweet lil' hand crocheted lavender and pink strawberries just arrived at my house today (photo courtesy of Jannet) all the way from Denmark. Jannet (you can reach her via email: was sweet enough to make up this batch just for me. She had the pink strawberries already made, but of course I needed a couple of lavender ones too, and she graciously agreed to make them for me. The best part is, they didn't break the bank -- they were only $1.00 each - can you believe it? I'm a HaPpY CaMpeR =)

Finally! The PERFECT Spot

The pretty basket cover that I purchased from Niki at "Nostalgia At The Stone House" (please see a few Posts ago) has finally found it's p*e*r*f*e*c*t spot. I love it here next to my favorite chair and ottoman in the living room. The beautiful box you see sitting on top of the basket was made by Marja at "A Home From The Heart" Excuse the green carpet (ugh!) that is on my "Wish List" to have removed. There is lovely old oak floor underneath and I would love to have the carpet ripped up and the floor refinished... Some day! I'd also like the ceiling fan removed and an old chandelier installed, this too is on my "Wish List". This "List" is getting quite long - LOL! It seems our home is a constant work in progress. By the time I think I almost have everything the way I want it (over the course of the last 22 years) another room needs to be updated/redone. Am I the only one who feels like this??? =)

I had to share this...

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass... It's about learning to dance in the rain!
