Fascination with Dragonfly

On days when I have time, I eat my lunch by the lake at our city park. It is so nice to go there and eat a relaxing , quiet lunch. I usually take my camera and on this day I was lucky enough to get close to a dragonfly by the waters edge. I sat on the rocks and stayed very still and was able to get quite a few shots of this one. It kept coming back to the same branch in the water. I have been fascinated with dragonflies since I was a little girl. They remind me of helicopters.

Que Sera Sera

I remember having this picture taken. I was almost 7 years old. I loved the dress, which I think came from my Great Aunt Elizabeth. I had black velvet hair bows that held my hair back. And my favorite shoes, black patent leather, and anklet socks with a little trim on them.

Sometimes life's lessons can be a little thorny!

Remember, you may not be able to control what life puts in your path,
but you can control who you are and who you will become.

Pure Sweetness

Aren't these little guys adorable! In My World I would love to have a Basset Hound again someday. They definitely have an interesting character and loving-ness. I need to make a refrigerator magnet or bookmark with this picture of them. Does anyone have a really great phrase or saying that could go with this picture?

Someday I hope to be this organized. Wish me Luck and time to do it!
I finally found containers for using in my kitchen, or anywhere. They are exactly what I have been looking for. I also found these at Bed, Bath, and Beyond. They are OXO GOOD GRIPS POP CONTAINER. They are stackable, The lid is flat, but has a round button in the center. When you push the lid down, it pops up, and becomes the handle. The button also engages the sealing mechanism. They are awesome. I also found some at Target. This is what I have so far, but plan on getting more.

My New Boots

I have been looking for some "fun" boots to wear outside when the grass is wet etc. Kristin & I were shopping together recently and she found these for me. I love them! Aren't they just fun!
I'm sure I will have to fight for them with Lonnie, can't you picture him wearing these...hahahaha!
