{Thank you Fresh Apricots}

I started my day outside.
I mentioned earlier I wanted to attempt to shape the shrubs. . . and that is exactly what I did. Not bad for an amateur. They certainly aren't square, round, or even rectangle for that matter. I really cant explain what shape they turned out, but none-the-less it was nice to be outside.
Except, for the fact my kids kept going in and out of the house (I told them they had to play outside while I was out).

Mom, we are tired.
Mom, we are hot.
Mom, can we go in now?
Mom, how much longer?
Mom, Buddy wants the yellow Popsicle and there is only one left and I want it!

And in the midst of all the clipping and interrogation my my wondered off . . .

I thought . . . How in the world do you get all these clippings up?

I thought . . . Didn't Mr. Hobbs just get back in town, and now he is gone again? I guess its me & Big Dog again . . .at least he didnt take my camera (which is on the fritz).

I thought . . . why does this dog continue to get out of the fence and come to the front of the house. Does she not realize she is fixing to be up for adoption?

After all that action we went inside. I said, "Kids, why don't you find something to play with? Be Creative or use your imagination."
So, this is what they come up with:

Buddy made a C, a moon, and rainbow out of a headband. He was so proud.

Lily made a mobile out of a hanger and ribbon.

This picture is of Clayton. You will have to use your imagination because for some reason I cant get the flash on my camera to work. SW, what in the world did I do? Maybe I need a bulb? or do cameras even take bulbs these days?
So you wont have to wonder Clayton is on the computer playing Club Penguin (his latest gig) begging and begging to become a member.

All this going on while I did the dishes.
I thought . . .I am sure glad I have this soap. It smells like fresh apricots. It is the small joy that is helping me hang on at this point.
Talk Later.
Love, Tonia
