I'm back.....

Hello, I've been gone for quite awhile....decided to get back to blogging again.  I'm opening up a new chapter this year with weight loss and getting back to church.  I want to use scripture and prayer to help me with my weight loss and I've joined WW also to give me great tools.
I am also starting to look for a new job in the Destin or Pensacola Florida area starting in August.  If I find one, I will be moving down "ealier" than Ken.  He will be quitting Big Lots in January 2014 and then he will move on down.  So we definetly have some big changes coming our way.
I got a knee replacement in October of this past year.  Started my first day back to work yesteday....!  It was quite a long journey coming back from the surgery, but I fell it's made me stronger as a person to get through it all.  Still working at physical therapy and I can now ride an upright bike, which I haven't been able to do for years.  So my plan is to buy a new bike this spring and  hit the trails.
I now have not only Johnathan, who is now 2 1/2 years, but also have Josephine who is now 8 months old and Johnathan's little sister.  My younger son also has a little one on the way and will be here in June.  So between Ken and I we will have 10 grandchildren.
I have also made a change recently to go blond and start letting my natural hair grow out.  I am tired of coloring it and decided to embrace my "young" age.
Well, enough for now.....keep watching for new posts.

What a Contrast!

Such craziness....last Saturday we had snow blowing like crazy and ended up with almost five inches stuck to all the trees and so forth. Of course by late Sunday it was all gone.  Not a trace!  This weekend, we've had beautiful weather and today it's supposed to be around 80 degrees.....only in the wonderful midwest!!!!!

Hello....I'm back!  Where have I been?  I don't know, life gets in the way.  But I'm back to blogging.  Yes, this little boy has grown quite a bit since you last saw him.  He's going on ten months, crawling and getting into everything.  He's such a joy!  I'm glad it's getting to be warmer weather so we can take him out and about.  Can't wait to take him to the "big" park to feed the geese.  He's gonna love it.

I am very proud of myself today.....I finally used my cuttlebug that was purchased about 1 1/2 years ago. Yes, it's amazing....I know! I actually got it out of the box it came in a few weeks ago and purchased some new diecuts and I cut out letters and the cutest little feet and flip flops today. The little feet "slip" right into the flip flops! Just perfect for my "Destin" book. I've been procrastinating about getting it started long enough and started the first page today. Once I get going, I'll be fine. I leave you today with a pic of my gorgeous tabby, Taz (Tazmanian Devil).

Spent the day out weeding in my garden and cleaning up a few things since there's an everchanging landscape out there. It was a beautiful day outside, pretty hot, but humidity was low and a cool breeze to help keep me going. Got almost everything done I wanted to. Have to put a bench back together that fell apart this spring, but had to charge the power drill. That's tomorrow's project outside. Everything looks so cleaned up and beautiful. Here's some pics I have to share!

What a gorgeous melon color this daylily delicate looking.

My beautiful, over-taking coneflower. Yes, it's natural to this area, but it's getting carried away this year. I actually had to tear some out. I love taking profile pics of this flower and I also caught a bee on it. He was busy working his way from bloom to bloom.

And the best for favorite of all-time. Just love the brightness of this bloom. It certainly puts on quite a show.
