It’s been a while

8 Mar

*knock knock*

<peers around>


Anyone still out there?

Wow, but it’s been a while.


So while I work on getting back up on my feet and blogging again, as well as figuring out what has changed and what I need to be updated on WordPress wise, I think I’ll leave a recent family photo with you all so that you all know how much you might have missed. 🙂 This was taken up at Glenn’s Point at the Grand Canyon.


Lydia’s 2nd Birthday

28 Jan

Opening gifts from Grandma and Grandpa Tamblingson.


I love it when she tries to eat the banana! 😀


Happy Birthday Dear Lydia!!



Up-cycling Pallets

25 Jan

I decided to build myself a garden shelf using existing materials: old Pallets.

2013-01-25 10.29.10

First you have to cut off one side of the pallet (making sure that you leave 2 supports).

Then you take the slats that you cut off the one side, and get those ready.

2013-01-25 11.31.45

Here are both sides of the shelf.

2013-01-25 12.26.52

Starting to assemble.

Many bent nails and pounded fingers later, behold, The finished item. (pretty much.)

The shelf was too heavy for me to carry into the garage by myself, so I left it where I finished it. I waited for Jordan and Austin to come home to help me carry it in. Jordan arrived separately from Austin, and admired my shelf. Austin arrived later, and when I asked him and Jordan to carry it in, he informed me that he had seen the shelf when coming in, he saw the shelf, thought it was kinda rustic, but was meant to be broken up for firewood. Thankfully, he didn’t decide to do it right then and there! Needless to say, I told him that if he had broken it up, I would have cried! (Remember the pounded fingers?)

It is now happily (and safely) situated in the garage!

Bed Head

22 Jan

Lydia got up, illness and I was tickled with her hair. So I got a back view…

…and a front view.

Love it!

Free Phones and Harmony 2013

While driving around town running errands, illness I noticed a small crowd.

A closer look revealed “Free Phones”.

*Shakes head*

Here are a few photos from Harmony. Some of the few that I got that night.

Lydia eating breakfast

16 Jan

We are in Tucson for Harmony in the Desert, and I was feeding Lydia some breakfast. She was a bit short just to sit on the chair at the table, so I added a few books.

2013-01-16 08.37.33

She enjoyed her breakfast! Who wouldn’t enjoy strawberries and cream?

52 projects/52 weeks – Project #29

13 Jan

A skirt that I made for one of the girls at church.

It looks big, buy cialis but it always does just being held up. It fit well, and looked good on her.
