Home Again






So, it always amazes me that I can be in one place earlier in the day and later I am 500 miles back to where I started. The plane ride was very...hmmm...awful! I'm not much for flying anyway, but this trip was one for my books. When I got to the airport they canceled my flight because the plane had "technical difficulties", so I booked one on another airline that was to get me home about the same time. It was a bigger jet, but the ride was SO bumpy...WAY UP and then we went WAY DOWN! I tell you I had my cell phone out to call my loved ones to say goodbye! NOW, it really wasn't that bad I guess, because the woman next to me was doing a crossword puzzle through the whole thing! Oh well...I'm on the ground now and all is well here!

My parents house was a busy time, it is always a busy time with my energetic mom! FUN! I wanted to include some pics of my parents again. I love them so much. I especially love the one of my dad because he looks like the dad I remember. It was taken earlier this summer when they were in California at a wedding. I am glad to report that the CLL doesn't seem to be as bad as first thought, but they are doing tests. We have other concerns...but I'm not ready to say anything as of yet...so for now I am so happy to see THEM seeming so happy.

The strange man with my mom is Bret the "Hitman" Heart. I think he is a famous wrestler! My mom told me she used to watch wrestling with her dad when she was a little girl, so when they say him at this wedding she was thrilled to pose with him...So, for you wrestling fans out there...:)

The beautiful spider web was my creative gift I got this morning when I went downstairs to greet my mountains! It made me a little itchy to think of the spider that went with it, but I have to say they are very creative little creatures...so I wanted to share!

Thanks to all who wrote me while I was away, kept in touch. Because of the reason I went...to see how my dad is doing and to hug his neck...I really needed the connection from my blogging family to keep me grounded! And, I've seen the paintings some have done from the pics I posted. I have to say beautiful work Karen! If there are others who painted from my pics, send them over I LOVE TO SEE THEM!!

So, sort of back in the saddle...I have to do laundry today, and get ready for two days of subbing (yes, it's time to go back to the school I went to a couple of weeks ago by mistake!)...But, I WILL get back to painting...but I have an idea for a "sub" purse to make from some leather I have...I need something that fits my needs there...and YES, I will share the pics when I finish them!!

Until then...HAPPY PAINTING TO YOU ALL!! Hey...we only need 4 more followers before our next give-away...see if you can get your friends to peek at the blog and follow!!

So glad you are back Saundra. I missed your journaling while you were away. Love the photos of your mom and dad too. She is just so cute! Your dad looks so very strong too. Hoping and praying that his health issues can be dealt with poste haste!

It sounded like a wonderful trip - I'm sure they enjoyed it as much as you did.

I really enjoyed using your photos - thanks again.

Well, hugs to you and your concerns. Glad it was a good visit. I think we are both lucky in who we got for parents. I give thanks every day!

You are right miss Elizabeth!

I'm jealous, Saundra...you get to see Mom and Dad all the time. Ofcourse, you always were their favorite! :{)

If anyone cares, Bret Hart was the World Wrestling Heavyweight Champion in 1999-2000, best known for his victory over Kevin Nash, "DIesel", in 1995 at the Royal Rumble!

I really need to get a life...
