Project Life March 2020

 I really can't believe it's taken me this long to do these pages. Part of the problem is thinking about adding info etc. about the pandemic in it but not wanting it to take up too many pages. So, thank God Persnickety Prints has the Covid-19 Timelines so I printed one for each month so far and just added them. Since they are 4"x8" I'll have to think of a photo to put on the other side.

Happy 45 Year Anniversary!!

45 years!! 

That's a REALLY long time! We've been blessed in so many ways!! 

Like the healthy birth of our 3 kids and 3 grandkids. 

So blessed to call these 3 mine! 

Wonderful grands and a new one on the way! 


New house purchases.

 


Traveling far and wide...






My favorite trip was to the UK and staying at the Hard Days Night Hotel in Liverpool. 



  


We've had lots of laughs. Scary times too! And fun!!! 

Ziplining in Hocking Hills with Joe & Diane

Our favorite winter getaway..Riviera Maya this time with Jenn & Dan.

We've run in a few 5k's together and we starting running again recently. Our hope is to run in 5k's when we travel to different places. 


Learning to take a selfie LOL. 

I could only find two pics of the two of us in running gear. 

We've had a great marriage! I mean REALLY great! I couldn't love him more if I tried. He's my rock, my confidant and my best friend. 

Here's to another 45 hon, (or at least 20).

It's the little things (and big)

 The little things...

It was back in April, all of a sudden my gold chain with little hearts on it that Paul bought me about 30 years ago, broke ๐Ÿ˜ข. 

I was so sad. And grateful though that it happened in front of me and I didn't lose it somewhere. Of course being April everywhere was shut down. So I took it to a jewelry store this past Wednesday and they called me today to say it was fixed. Only $15 and I have one of my most prized possessions back. I'm thrilled. 

I love this online store..Buddha Groove and recently purchased a set of earrings. They are so pretty..

I finished a little sweater I knitted for Lottie. I hated the pattern. Originally it was for 0-3 months. A lady had altered the pattern to fit 12-18 months. I used that pattern as a test and it was too small for her in the arms. So when I made this one I made a lot larger. It's still too tight. I think I'll stick with shawls, blankets, scarves, hats and socks. 

And some big things...

Jenn and Dan did a FaceTime gender reveal. IT WAS SO EXCITING!!! 


Lottie is learning all kinds of new things. One is to blow kisses..

I got a new car!!! I am in love ๐Ÿ’“. It's a Hyundai Palisade Limited. 

Yesterday I went and got the two front windows tinted. Having a police officer for a daughter is intimidating in that process. I feel I want to go back and get the 4 a shade darker LOL. 

Paul saw a raccoon in our yard with what looked like a beat up face. He thinks it may have gotten in a fight or something. I called Avon's finest and they sent an officer right out. He took it in the back (away from any kids) and shot it. He then took it away. Poor thing. 

 

I'll leave you with some signs of the times funnies...



and this one? You got that right..

As always...

Thankful Thursday!

 Hey-Hey,

Long time no see..like May? A lot has happened but it's Thursday and there's so much I'm thankful for...

I'm thankful for my hubby and kids whom without I'd surely be nuts (or nuttier) by now with this pandemic. 

I'm thankful for Face-Time because I get to see Ellie whenever Jenn or Dan are home for breakfast. 


I'm thankful for my friends who love me enough to text me every morning (Thanks Joanie) and bring me things like fresh tomatoes from their yard (thanks Bev).  



The fact that hair grows back...


I love that Persnickety Prints is creating and making available Coronavirus Timelines for FREE! https://www.persnicketyprints.com/category/covid-resources/


I'm thankful that my nail salon is back up and running and I mustered up the nerve to go.



I'm thankful for memes..they really do help bring a bit of humor in this bleak time! 



I'm thankful for this little peanut..she brings so much joy!! 


I'm thankful that Joe Biden chose Kamala Harris as I think she's strong enough to go up against Pence and kick some ass. Our administration sickens me.
