Lesson Learned!

Because I am a dumb ass.... I thought I would share a "What Not to Do!!"

Last week we celebrated Cora's 15th birthday by talking her to the beach. I was having issues that morning, so I took a pain pill..... Well... It's not that bright of an idea to take a pain pill before you go to the beach, Because You just don't feel yourself burning! Yup! That's my back... I spent the day building a 10 dome sand castle with bridges and moats... and while I was bent over digging... I did that to myself. Awful! Miserable! Yes- I'm aware of that thing called sunscreen... I just didn't have any. And No... there's no pictures of the sand castle because I forgot to take my camera with me. ((My mind has gone to mush here lately! There's just tooooo much for me to keep up with these days!))

Either way, the kids had a blast:) And Cora was happy. Here she is blowing out her candles with the silliest look on her face. That's what a happy kid looks like:) ...Happy Birthday Baby!

I've been having a hard time getting 'work' done here lately. The kiddos are with me everyday... And by the time the evening rolls around, I'm falling asleep. BUT... Yesterday I got a lot done! Hopefully this week the sun comes out so I can get everything listed:) This jug however, will Not be for sale. A while ago I did a trade with my friend Becky and she sent me this terra cotta pot. I of course had to crackle it, and age it... And it will evenually go to live in my Garden Room. I did paint a few other regular flower pots for the shop- Just haven't been able to get a good picture yet.

...and then there's these guys:)

They keep me busy all day, too. We are down to 11 now... I really don't want to discuss it. I just want to think I did what was right.... So....Here's Porkchop:) He's almost like a mini Otis, without the attutide, lol. Don't let that cute face fool you... He is a monster!! This guy will climb right up your leg to steal the sandwich you are making... And he's quick!

And speaking of Otis...
He's so sweet when he's sleeping, LOL.

Almost as cute as Rufus is, huh?

Don' they just make you want to go take a nap....

Until Next Time:)
