It's Winter

I took down all my Christmas decorations
and my house looks so bare
and not in a good way.
The mornings have been a little chilly here in the desert.
I received two cookbooks for Christmas
and haven't cooked anything out of them,
not one single thing. But everything in them looks amazing.
I've been pinning lots of healthy recipes though. Pinning not making.
I'm such a procrastinator.
For some reason, I have the need to read a book.
I need to get myself to the library.
Is it just me, or is there NOTHING on TV?
My daughter bought herself a Rosetta Stone app to learn French.
I find myself,  answering oui, oui to everything.
I think the Spanish or Italian dialect is way more sexy.
The lady on the app, sounds as if she has a frog in her throat.
That, or too many cigarettes.
Going to the cold country for a few weeks.
I need to buy gloves, a beanie and snow boots.
Do they make tennis shoes for the snowy weather?
I have big plans on walking and getting healthier.
Just as soon as I stop procrastinating.

(Ali took the pic above
one morning before Christmas.
I had an apron on every single day during the holidays.
I love aprons.
 I made the one above out of an old pillow case.
I so wish I would have paid attention in Home Ec during sewing class.)

Being a Grandmother

I have the best job

The reward for being a Mom
is that you hopefully get to be a grandmother
By the Grace of God
I get to experience this wonderful Joy
at Christmas time it's magical

Who knew that being a Mom and a Grandmother
would be the best job in the world...

A New Years Eve Outfit

New Years Eve

Happy Birthday to me...
If I was going out for my birthday,
and I could actually find all of these items,
this is the outfit , I would wear
sadly, I am not going out...
I am babysitting the monkey's for my daughter and son in law,
so they can go out...
oh vey,
the things you do once you become a grandmother.

(Ali and I had fun putting this outfit together on polyvore. Of course,
she signed me up and unless she is around, I don't think I will be able to
manage it without her.  Her being computer savvy and all.  I'm like,
how did you do that?  Show me again...basically, driving her crazy)

A Midi Skirt

This is the perfect summer outfit
I love skirts,
anything past my knees , makes me look frumpy
one of my weaknesses when I shop at thrift stores, are skirts
I have a closet full of skirts
I can't help it
I usually send them to a seamstress to be hemmed

Mushroom Head

Is it just me
or does Ali look like she has a mushroom
growing out of her head?
This was taken way back in May
before another tragedy happened
We lost our favorite Aunt
a Mother almost to most of us
she had moved out to our little piece of the world
to be closer to her sister
they did everything together
almost to the point of driving my Dad crazy
my poor Mother
her world has been rocked
our world's have been rocked
life is too short
