I am finally posting....
Wow! It has been a crazy month.

Where do I start?

First, the above picture is from our trip to San Diego and time at the zoo.  We had a great time with the grands and a week at the beach house.  I am slow in posting and pretty much slow in everything.

I had surgery on April 4th, the week after we came home from beach house.
This was my second surgery since February and it was a lot more intense than the first.
The next two weeks were a blur, because I was in recovery mode.  
BUT, I can say that I was extremely blessed by prayers, meals, visitors and one of my 
BFF's coming out to help me.  Shout out to Denise! She did all my laundry while I laid around on my tuff and did nothing.
While she was here, we did spend some time on Lightroom and she showed me how to use it.  
The above picture is one of the first one that I edited.  It is all so new to me so it takes me forever.  But, I will be on there more, now that I am feeling a bit back to normal to get used to it.

I am going to start on P52 again but instead of going back I am just starting where I am at.


This is the before picture...

P52 Week 6 and 7

Happy Good Friday!
I have been a mess with my pictures!
We have a week off of school and that is one of my goals, to get them organized.

Here are two pictures that were taken in February. : )
The first was taken in a train station in Kansas City and the second was at the downtown homeless mission in Los Angeles.


A week at the beach house coming up.... LOVE!!!

P52 Week 5

We went to a Antique store while in Seattle and I found a huge cabinet of old photos!
It was fantastic and sad at the same time.
Fantastic because instantly I was taken back into time.
Sad because these are pics of families.  Someones family.
I love photos.  
I love my old family photos. I would not want my old photos in an antique store separated from the family.

I wish we could unite them with their owners but alas we can not : (

The one on the left is dated circa 1920's.
I love the clothes.
I bought that one : )

What Am I Reading???

I find it much more difficult to take the time to read in this stage of my life.
I can and will blame it mostly on two things...
One... I get way more distracted... I blame that on hormones : /
And two...
Which is one huge reason why I get so distracted! LOL!
Back in the day, Before Facebook days, I would spend 30 mins in my bed before I went to sleep, reading.
Now, I spend 30
mins trolling on Facebook.  Ack! I hate it!
So this year, or more specifically in the last month, I have decided to force myself to put my stupid phone down and READ!!!!!

So far, I have read "Go Set a Watchman" by Harper Lee and
I am currently reading "Brooklyn" by Colm Toibin and "Emotional Purity" by Heather Arnel Paulsen. I am reading that book with the young ladies in my disciple group.

I am also listening to "Screwtape Letters" By C.S. Lewis.
I read that book years ago to my boy when I was homeschooling but thought I would listen to it.
It is soooo good, btw!

So there you have it...
True confessions about my life and what I am doing with my time...

P52 Week 4...

Seattle on a Beautiful, slightly raining day....

I have been out of the loop...

January came and went and then February came and went...
I have had some computer problems so it wasn't easy getting my pics uploaded and onto my blog.
In addition, I have a some medical things going on... Long story... but God is so good and mericiful and ALL knowing.
He showed himself Greatly during this season of my life...

I am going to try to show up here more often.  It does bring me some joy and I miss looking at all your lives through photos.
