She's flying in tomorrow night (Thursday) and we'll have the weekend together...she'll leave on Labor Day. We will be busy shopping and visiting family and seeing her friends and loading her truck. We will have some quiet time together, too...to sit and chat, hang out with the dogs, have pizza/watch a movie, etc.! Monday will come all too soon.
I'll be sure to take lots of photos. See ya soon!

Dad loved to go camping...this was taken a year before he died.
Then, there is this adorable picture!
It's winter in Wisconsin...I must have been 3 years old.
He was a great Dad...poor thing, he was surrounded by girls!
But, he did the best he could....played ball with us,
took us fishing & to the stockcar races.
oh Dad, I love you...and miss you still.

This is 'Tag E. Butt'. This free pattern was in RHM
I made this 'Stretch Golden' for Kimmer. I think it measures ~7 x 26 inches.
I moved last year, and did several stitchings for Christmas...
This is a chairpad from Wendy Miller that I made into a pillow for Jasmine.
This is 'Tag', my design...for Conlan.
This snowman is by Kelley Belfast...for Devin.
This Sheep Dreams pillow is Kaylynn's.

The spectacular event on August 24 will also see
Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page (YAY!)
performing a duet with pop star Leona Lewis."
This, according to the MIRROR.
I say, "Leona WHO????"
Well, where have I been? She is fabulous!
(be sure to check my sidebar for Leona on YouTube)
This blew me away!!! Be sure to keep your eye on Simon...
And, in case you thought David Beckham was
just another pretty face...
Apparently, he's quite useful!
(okay, I admit it, I had a vague idea of who he is, but that's all!)

The Beijing 2008 Summer Olympics have started...
did you see the Opening Ceremony?
Pretty awesome, though long.
I am not too interested in many of the sports
There are so many interesting and inspirational

Okay...so, if you're reading this, you may have noticed that my BLOG has a new background! Shame on you if you didn't notice it! I was checking out some of my favorite blogs and saw a post that led to this... The Cutest Blog on the Block!! I clicked on the link and got this FREE background! YAY! There are all kinds of cute backgrounds and they are FREE!! Easy to use, too! The directions are all right there on the blog, so go and check them out!!!
I thought the music one was appropriate, as I am such a rocker! (No, I'm not referring to a rocking chair, but to rock music! Aren't you the funny one!) Some of them are too cute, if ya know what I mean, but there are lots and lots of them! Try one out!

This first photo was actually taken AFTER the second photo...you'll understand as you keep reading.
This is how I leave my big easy chair when I go to work or to bed...or whenever my big butt will be away from it for awhile. With the plastic container, or something similar, on the seat to prevent the dogs from laying in my chair.
Last night, as I was on my way to bed, I noticed that one of my tag-alongs wasn't tagging along. Yup, you guessed it...TAG! I went looking for him and this is what I found.
Hmmmm...someone looks pretty comfortable! In comparing the two photos, you will notice that the magazines are now on the floor, the back cushion is up above the back of the chair, the plastic container is pushed forward...and there is the Tag Man...asleep in MY chair! I told him, "off!" and he looked up at me, but did nothing. I reached toward him, and he looked up at me...his big brown eyes saying, "but, Mama!" Then, he got up and off.
As I said...sometimes, I just shake my head in wonder.
