I've been spending way too long checking my tongue in the mirror
And bending over backwards just to try to see it clearer
But my breath fogged up the glass
And so I drew a new face and I laughed

I guess what I be saying is there ain't no better reason
To rid yourself of vanities and just go with the seasons
It's what we aim to do, our name is our virtue

My View From The Ground...

We spent most of the morning in the house because it was just too hot outside. Yuck! I spent the morning trying to fill orders and the kids just watched movies and existed. After the running around and errands later in the day (waiting for The Hubbs to get home) I took everyone outside where I was just goofing off with the camera since I can't seem to find the time to do anything serious with it. So as I was laying on the blanket talking to them I decided to start taking some worthless photos. Worthless or not I kind of like how they turned out. I really like the two of just the grass. LOL Cuckoo!

This last one is a picture of my tomatoes before they become tomatoes. I have so many tomatoes now that it's crazy.

Yesterday I was finally able to pick up the Canon and use it for something other then taking pictures of cocoons and hats! I found time between picking radishes and my cauliflower disappointment to take some shots of the kids. The first few I have edited are of Gabby because I've been wanting to get these for awhile but timing is always off for some reason. She's sleeping or DH isn't home or I'm just not in the mood or whatever. Yesterday she had on her little dress and the stars were all aligned (yes, I'm being dramatic). These are the photos that are done and I really like them so far. I have more to do but DH is leaving again tonight and there are other things that have to be done first. I may get to editing again later tonight after I knock the kids out....I mean they fall asleep. :o)

I LOVE this guy! :o)

This is the kid who's platoon was under attack (by the Taliban) while he was sleeping and instead of getting dressed he jumped up and decided to just attack back wearing his pink boxers! LOL There is NOTHING wrong with a guy wearing pink boxers. His just happened to say 'I Heart New York'. Kinda funny and very ironic.
He was able to make it home for the 4th of July and I'm sure everyone was talking about those pink boxers.

Excuse any typos in that last post. I'm not used to typing with my thumbs.

Oh! Had my first harvest from my garden today!

Radishes...not very big and some only roots.



Cucumbers...were delicious.

Cauliflower...I threw it out. It had a purple tint to it (that it didn't have a few days ago) and I found a little green worm/catapiller thing. ,ot having any critters in my yum-yum. (I really need adult convos right?)

Happy 4th

...Or 5th by the time I get this posted. I'm blogging from bed from the blackberry because we just got home and Gabriella is over all the Independence day hoopla. We did what we do every year which is go to families and then walk to the park for the annual fireworks show. As soon as we got there I had to leave because Gabbs was not having it. I didn't blame her because I'm over going up there evey year. I do it for the kids though.
So I walk her back to SIL's house where we sit on the porch swing and just wait for it all to end.
My problem tonight was that after we got to the park and got situated; a girl sits next to us and lights up a cigarette and puffs away and her nasty smoke is blowing in my face and my children's face. She didn't look old enough to smoke but nothing surprises me any more. How inconsiderate and rude can a person be? This world will never cease to amaze me.

I'm out. Going to bed before 3am tonight!

...She Thinks That Happiness Is A Mat That Sits On Her Doorway....

I think I listened to this song every single day in my mid 20's up until early 30's. Before kids I would fall asleep to it. I'd have the cd player on repeat and this song would just play over and over.

Another song I love and I miss BNL. I think they do kids songs now. LOL

Here's a sweet picture I got of Gabriella this afternoon. DH was in it but I cloned him out. LOL
