Busy Life-Good Life

I realized today that it has been a long time since I last did a post.  I was thinking earlier about the goings on of the past few days.

Here goes:

I have been doing lots of painting.  I have sold several paintings to local friends through Facebook.  I am loving painting and selling my work!

I had an appt. for a physical last week.  They asked me to come in a day or two before and have blood work.  I drove thirty minutes to the clinic for blood work.  I drove back the next day, signed in and went and found a seat in the lobby.  The receptionist calls me up and tells me my appt is THE NEXT day.  I was SO mad at myself.  I asked if another Dr could see me or if my Dr could work me in.  NOPE!  I stopped at Dairy Queen for a Blizzard.  I wanted to have some good out of the drive.  So I drove the following day for the real appt.  I got a VERY VERY good report!  I was so thankful!

Our laptop fell on Sarah Kate's big toe in July.( I was out of town)  I knew it hurt her so bad.  She was bleeding underneath her toenail.  I have kept a close eye on her nail all Summer.  It started looking really weird last week.  She told me several times that she thought her nail was going to come off.  I told her to leave it alone and I thought it would be fine.  Well, Sunday afternoon on our way to choir, I could see her nail completely hanging off by a thread.  It was gross and made my heart sink.  She acted as if her whole foot was about to fall off.  I know every person at church and even those driving by heard her screaming.  We went on into church and a friend of mine "performed surgery."  SK quickly calmed down.  Everyone tells me it will grow back. 

Sarah Kate also lost her first tooth last week at school.  She was so proud!

I am helping lead Beth Moore's Children of the Day Bible Study at our church.  It is such a great study!  I went to the Living Proof Live Simulcast on Saturday!  It was FANTASTIC! 

That is about it for now!

Hi Laurie!

Your paintings are amazing! Have you considered selling and shipping them? If so, I'd be interested.

Hi Laurie! The same thing happened to my husband when we were moving a heavy box upstairs. It took awhile for the nail to fall off also. It will grow back - but it will take some time!

I am also interested in your painting if you ship to Huntsville, AL! Thank you!

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember life being so complicated when I was in middle school. Everything is so competitive now.  Maybe it was back then and I just didn't realize it. Sarah Kate started playing city league softball a couple of weeks ago.   We've been encouraged to get her private batting lessons. When I was in third grade I started playing softball and I just did it for fun!  No stress at all, as far as I can remember!  I just played.  I wasn't very good, but I liked it! Ha! Emily started band this year!  Before school started, I got a letter from the school district strongly encouraging "your band student to take instrument lessons."  WHAT?  I bought into it and got Emily private clarinet lessons (which she really enjoys)! But, what happened to learning as you go?  I never thought about taking private trumpet lessons when I started band. It seems like most parents are striving for their child to be THE BEST.  I guess that's a go

Something Good to Eat

Ever since Steve and I started dating, when we would go to Mississippi, his aunt would make the BEST ROAST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! Steve's Dad's side of the family gets together at his Granny's house for lunch every Sunday after church. The food is always sooo good!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always taken a liking to his Aunt Judy's roast. It really is the best roast I have ever had. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, my sister in law asked Aunt Judy for the recipe. Aunt Judy began naming all the ingredients. She said Ranch Dressing mix, and I bugged my eyes out and nearly chocked. I HATE RANCH DRESSING. I don't even like to be in the room with it. I had to focus on the word MIX....not the mayo and butter milk and sour cream that you add to it. Just typing those words makes me shudder. The recipe sounded awful as she rattled off the ingredients, but I promise, you have got to make this if you like a good roast. Trust me on this. Here it is: Get a tender chuck

Life in Pictures!

Emily is enjoying her first year in band.  I am very impressed with her playing skill! Sarah Kate was recently awarded the empathy award at her school.  She is very deserving of this! Here we are before the Cotillion Holly Ball.
