Continuing the walk....

First, G took a picture of our kitty this morning and I've got to show everyone.

Isn't she the cutest thing!

I can't believe it's Thursday already, I've still got more photo's of my spring flower walk to show.  Here are two more.

The colors are just amazing.

I wish my flowers would turn out this pretty.

I've got 2 more photo's to show, but I'll wait until tomorrow :)

Walking the Neighborhood

One of my favorite walks in the neighborhood is past the house that has the lighthouse.
This is actually a miniature lighthouse with a lake and boat - isn't it fun!

next door to the lighthouse are the prettiest tulips in another peaceful setting.
I love tulips.

It's been raining last night and today so I'm happy I got out and walked yesterday and took my photos before mother nature started her wash.

By the time she is finished with us this week, most of the blossoms on the trees will be washed off by the rain.
such is life...

A Bloomin' Sunday

We had a great Sunday today.  It was so gorgeous out this morning I actually got G out the door for a walk!

I took lots of photos of everything blooming in our neighborhood. 
Our trees are almost done blooming, the tulips are doing their best to hang on.
I took so many photos that I've decided to share them throughout the week instead of overwhelming today's blog with all of them.
So stop by during the week and follow along the yellow petalled sidewalk

as you see my neighborhood through the flowers that grow here.
I've got pictures from the pretty white trees

to bright, prolific and sadly misunderstood dandilion.

After that refreshing walk, we felt so energized and healthy,
we went to the Mustard Seed Market
in a nearby town for a great selection of organic food.  I even found a red wine that is sulfite free and organic.  I hope it tastes good too.  I'll share the bottle with you, when I open it. :)

Ahhh, the weekend

I love weekends.

We actually have plans for this weekend.  G and I are going to the Great Lakes Science Center.  He loves astronomy and the IMAX Theater at the Science Center has a movie about the Hubbard Space shuttle .. or something like that.
I'll make a fun day of it, the Science Center is very cool.

I made another bracelet I'm very excited about.  I love bouncy charm bracelets.  They jiggle and wiggle with lots of color.  I'm calling this one My Flower Garden because I've added some gorgeous yellow and blue flowers to the mix.
I'm putting this one on my Etsy page too.  Here it is...

I'm currently reading 'Mozart's Ghost'.  It's a fun chic-lit.  The only gripe is the main character is a bit too cranky/moody for me.  I just want to tell her to lighten up a bit. Otherwise, it's a fun story.

Another book that I got from the library is 'The Kind Diet' - it's basically Vegan which I find impossible to follow for myself mainly because of all the food preparation involved.  I love the recipes and all the food that is used, I just find it too time consuming.  I'd rather be beading. LOL!

Time flies

I can't believe it's Saturday night already. 
Good grief, I'm must be having a lot of fun cause time sure flies around here.
It feels like I had just started the work week and here I am with half my weekend over already. 

I've been very good getting to the gym for strength training and taking vitamins D, Calcium, and multivitamins and had tons of energy today.  Got some cleaning done, kitchen and bedroom, ran out for a few errands and even photographed some of my jewelry.  Wow, if this is what exercise does, I'll keep at it. 

I've been keeping busy moving my studio from my loft down to my office hoping that I can stay more organized.  Not sure about the whole idea now. Well, if it doesn't work out, I'll just move it all back up to the loft.  Everything is getting a good cleaning anyway. 

I don't show my jewelry too often on my blog because I don't want it to be a blog about selling jewelry, BUT I've got two darling pieces that are so springtime colorful, I thought everyone just might enjoy them.  The colors put happy thoughts in my head.

Holiday weekends

UGH , Holiday weekends are tough for me. I'm very weak around food when I'm out of town. lol. the two seem to go together.

After indulging myself all weekend, i'm going to forgive myself :) and get back to training. I've got my meal plan figured out for the rest of the week, my training plan scheduled too.

We just planned on a family beach house week this summer so I've got my motivation. I want to be able to RUN down the beach and frolic in the sand . woohoo!

Happy Easter

Happy Easter !!
Hoping the easter bunny found your home.

I finally found a whole bunch of comments that I didn't even know I had.  I have to moderate my comments because someone has unkindly set me up for junk comments like junk email and I don't want that garbage on my blog.  ugh.
I kept looking for my comments then they all showed up at once today- all from different days.  very weird.

Thank you everyone for stopping by to leave a comment.  Thankfully the Easter bunny showed me where they were hiding!

Jimmeny Cricket

Spring came hard and fast.
It was 80 degrees out today!  we've got our windows open and can already hear CRICKETS!  I thought it was birds, I thought it was too early for crickets. 

I love the sounds of summer.  I am always amazed at how people can shut their windows and run the air conditioners and block out those beautiful sounds.
Birds chirping sweetly, crickets singing, the wind in the trees, it's all beautiful.

So I get a little warm with the windows open, I just wear really light weight fabric and enjoy the season of warmth.

Let the sun shine in !!
