Smiles this weekend!



Can you guess what my granddaughter Emmie is saying? "Cheese!" πŸ˜ƒ I said give me a smile and you can be excused from the table. This is the result. She sure brought a lot of smiles this weekend. Here are some of our adventures.





I also decided to make some vegetable soup. There is nothing like a hearty meal for a windy day. Yum!


And last but not least... as promised... here is the picture I painted on Thursday night. No Picasso, lol, but we had so much fun in painting class.


As the weekend closes, I look forward to smiling my way through the short week at work and celebrating Thanksgiving. πŸ—πŸ°πŸˆ

Count your blessings.πŸ™
Take Care and Smile!

Time is Precious

Where does the time go? Who among us has not uttered those 5 words? Our lives are so busy. There never seems enough time to do the things that make us happy, enrich or lives, or nurture important relationships. We have time for work projects, getting our kids or pets to the doctor, paying bills on time, caring for an elderly parent, getting groceries, etc.

My new promise to myself is to find time, no make time, for both self-care and for my family and friends. Although I truly love my job, and kind of love the thrill of a high pressure project, I am not doing myself or my loved ones any favors by not making "us" a priority.

One of my fresh starts was spending the day in Philly with my husband. I had never been to the Museum  of Art, we both though it would be great to visit. We had an awesome experience and fun day! See some of our pictures below.













One of my next experiences will be going to a painting class with my good friend Christine. I can't wait to share our story.

Time is precious. Enjoy Life and Take Care!

Home Sweet Home


It's been a long day at work and you're so ready to be at home. You drive home enjoying the music on the radio. You can feel the decompression starting. Then you pull in the driveway, park the car and gather all your belongs. It's beautiful late afternoon and you can just feel and smell Spring is right around the corner.

You walk up to the door and at the top of the steps are these two super cute faces with wagging tails. They look like it has been a long day for them too and you are finally home. You get a nice long hug from your husband. And now you can finally say it... "Home Sweet Home".
