Lots of teamwork happening between brothers as they assemble their new weightlifting bench.

90/365 Hospital Day
Spent most the day at the hospital while my mom was getting a new knee.
91/365 Finding my own sunshine today.
92/365 So glad my beloved is feeling better today. Food poisoning stinks 🙁
93/365 40 mph wind and dust storms with flying mud balls didn’t keep me from stopping in the parking lot and playing with my Olloclip lens for my iPhone. (Trying to find beauty where I am.)
95/365 Blue sky out my window
Victory is sweet when a season starts with a few losses. Proud of my punk and his hard work today.

86/365 Couch Buddies
87/365 Ol’ Blue Eyes
I’m chasing dogs in the backyard in search of my photo of the day. When I turn around I see my beloveds blue eyes smiling at me and it was then I knew I’d found my photo of the day.
88/365 My Big Canvas
Last week I took that picture hanging behind my beloved. We came home, I edited it and we ordered a 60 x 40 canvas. Today it arrived and we hung it in his office. I’m so pleased with how it turned out!
89/365 Daffodils make me happy

82/365 A boy and his shadow
Sunday we had a little visitor at our house.
My dogs didn’t handle it very well.
Actually only one of my dogs didn’t handle it very well. He just needs to know that he is always, without fail, our very favorite in the whole wide world.
This sweet puppy girl just wanted to play.
Sweet little Ivee is a therapy dog and she provides lots of comfort to those who have been through some of life’s most terrible traumas.
She also has a way of melting your heart and you can’t help but love her.
Even tough seventeen year old teenagers can’t resist the cuteness.
It is amazing to me that dogs can reach us in ways that humans can’t and I love the work this sweet little pup is doing. What a special little soul little Miss Ivee is!
69/365 Lemon Essential Oil
Adding a new section to my blog once a week called Everyday Essentials.

These boys played ball in the backyard tonight, and about 30 seconds after this photo my senior dogs back legs gave out behind him and he let out a whimper. It broke our hearts. So even though this is blurry, I want my kids to remember the good times with their faithful companion.He is the best dog.
and another one for this 72/365…
73/365 Happy Pi Day!
You say Pi, but I say Pie 😉

This sweet puppy came to visit me today.

64/365 Coming home from work
65/365 Serving it up
66/365 We played ball today.
Even though this is out of focus, I had to select this as my photo today. It’s an emotionally perfect photo for me because it’s a side of my senior dog I don’t get to see very often and I treasure times when he’s playful like this.
67/365 Wishful thinking
That time he wondered if he could still crawl up the inside of a door frame. (It was a slow day.)
55/365 Relaxing and strumming.
His very first guitars are on the wall behind him. He started playing by ear when he was six and hasn’t stopped.
56/365 Tournament Day
Last weeks tournament was sunny and 65. Today was cloudy, 27 plus wind. I must say I much prefer the sunny and 65 weather much more.
57/365 The most interesting man in the world pose.
“Hey mom, take my picture while I pose like the Dos Equis guy with my Pepsi.”
58/365 A peek into my planner.
A peek into my planner pages from last week.
Some days I like my palette more than my painting.
60/365 Lemonades, Thin Mints & Peanut Butter Patties, Oh My!
Restraint goes right out the door when the little girl in a green vest shows up at your house. How could I say no?
61/365 Happy Birthday Dad!
Today was a snowy day with icy streets, but that didn’t keep us from celebrating with some Texas BBQ and homemade German Chocolate Cake. Love you Dad! xo
If you haven’t been able to tell by my 365 project, I live a pretty simple life. I’m devoted to my family, I like simplicity and I am nonstop entertained (and sometimes overwhelmed) by these two punks.
And while these photos are not the “best”, I adore them because it shows their brotherly relationship.
I admit, sometimes the testosterone level in this house is bit more than I can take.
There is no preparation for the onslaught, non-stop, zest for life, living on the edge that boys can have.
You have no idea how many times I’ve felt strapped to a rocket and dizzy from the whirlwind of those early imaginative, adventurous days.
But now that we are nearing the end of a Junior and Freshmen year, I see an empty nest looming in the distance and it makes every moment of now so very precious to me and shines a light (as it has so many times before) that these two were the very best idea my beloved and I ever had.
48/365 President’s Day
No school for my punks today, so we headed out for a little fro yo treat.
49/365 My favorite tennis player
Spent the day watching my favorite tennis player. It started out windy, cold, and 40 degrees, but ended sunny, with no wind and 65. Ahhhh. Welcome Spring!
50/365 In search of Georgia O’Keeffe
I’ve become obsessed with studying all I can about Georgia OKeeffe, particularly her early years she spent in Amarillo and Canyon, Texas.
Some days you just have to stop what you’re doing and go get a cupcake.
52/365 Georgia O’Keeffe’s old art books
Today I toured the Panhandle Plains Historical Museum to see the “Red Landscape” painting by Georgia O’Keeffe. Then I went upstairs to the Resource Center and saw some of her old art books that were found in her trunk that she left behind in Canyon, TX at the Shirley house. Here is her signature in one of those books.
53/365 Relaxing at the Museum of Art
My Beloved took me to the Museum of Art today.
Breakfast always tastes better when someone special makes it for you.
