From A Long Way

While walking down our driveway this morning we noticed the remnants of a balloon.  Once we untangled the balloon fragments we could read “Urban Monkey Air Park.”  Good ole Google—Googled the name and found out it is an indoor trampoline business in Grants Pass, Oregon—that balloon sure traveled a long way!IMG_2684

Busy day for both of us.  Mike worked on a steel rack—getting some of his treasures cleaned up and organized.

I worked on some Easter presents, did laundry, made lunch, brushed and bathed Ms Emmi.  All that ball playing she does makes for one smelly dog! 

We had the last of our Cedar Key shrimp for supper tonight in shrimp lo mien—very good, very spicy, needed a whole lotta water to drown some of the spice!

Got some beautiful, stunning quilt tops in the mail today from Aunt Margaret and her friend Marti.  Those three tops will keep me busy for a while! 

My niece has the coolest little girls—the youngest, Leah is seven years old and just a card!  Niki posted on her Facebook page tonight:  “Oh my Leah- While playing on the playground with 3 older boys (they are all waiting on siblings during softball practice) they appoint Leah "it" for tag. She plays for a little while, then when she sees they are making up all the rules as they go, she quickly barks "I don't think so! You don't tell girls what to do!!".”         I love it—that’s my girl!!!

It was a gorgeous day, sunshine but very windy!  And not much else going on around here—that’s a good thing!

  3. Leah sounds like she has a lot of spirit. I haven't heard the expression 'card' for a very long time. One of my mothers favorite words. Thanks for the memory!

  6. Aawww. Thank you everyone. She is a spirited youngster. She can make her Aunt Janna hold her own, too. Lol. I was hoping, Janna, that you were gonna say the balloon was from Arkansas. The school had a balloon release the Friday before spring break. Last year, one of Leah's balloons made it to Alabama.
