Disney World 2013


So the Disney trip is booked for 2013!!!  8 Days 7 Nights at the new  Art of Animation Resort!  We let Evan pick the room and he went with Cars!



This pool looks awesome too featuring "Finding Nemo!" There are three pools...one is a Cars pool .....you can use any of the three while staying at the resort!


The Cars pool:

Now my only problem is figuring out how to fit a day in at Universal ....and transportation there since we are flying in!   Oh well it will all come together....for a PRICE of course, lol.

Summer Slips Away


Every year this time I get melancholy because summer is slipping away so fast and I feel like time is ticking. There are so many things to do and so much fun to be had that I just can't believe it's almost time to go back to work.

I think I feel it even more this summer because with the extreme heat and drought there are many things that we haven't really been able to do. Sitting on the patio in the evening has been next to impossible and several projects have been postponed,

There's not a lot I can do about it...but I hate when the mood strikes and the minutes tick by faster than I'd like!

It's Party Time


                   

Yes it's party time. Our annual summer party is tomorrow and this heat is really putting a dent in our back yard festivities. Most likely a large portion of the party will be indoors and if later people want to sit on the patio when it cools down we can. I'm a tad worried about the number of people I have coming to my oh so modest sized house....but we shall see. Our theme this year is Vegas in Warrenton (casino night). There's still plenty to do...string the cards for a banner, hanging cards from the ceiling, and getting our "betting jar" ready.  All that and a whole lot more!

Why then you may ask do I have a bunch of Puritan women at the top of this post...BECAUSE having the annual summer bash reminds me that it's really time to start working on the Halloween party theme...This year it's a Witch Hunt and I am writing the clues, characters etc. Think murder party theme but with a witch instead of a dead guy!  Plus thinking of October, my favorite month of the year makes me feel cooler. Hmmm....my two favorite months used to be June and October but this June has been dreadfully hot so I don;t even want to mention it. :)

Tell Me Your Story


Tell me your story of love and loss
Tell me a tale of woe
Tell me your heartbreak and shattered dreams
Tell me of shadows and doubt.

Tell me your story of laughter and dance
Tell me a tale of delight
Tell me your wonder and cherished memories
Tell me of treasure and joy

Tell me of life and days gone by
Tell me of pleasures and trials
Tell me oh tell me
The sights and the sounds
Life without stories in bland.
