Half Past May … Really?

How on earth have we arrived at Half Past May already?

We have had a very busy Spring this year… lots of living… little blog posting… if you are a faithful visitor here… you may have noticed my significant drop in posts!!  SORRY!  Apparently, my blog break turned into a huge blog change!  *yikes*

Life is good…just busy lately… full of wonderful things… my babies are growing up SO MUCH lately!! **I can’t handle the growing**!! … it aches my heart and makes me proud all at once…   =)

anyway… I just can’t find the time right now to post regularly! *sigh*… once again I have only managed my Sunday Post!!

please ignore the fact that I am randomly ALL OVER THE PLACE this week!! Every thing is out of order! I like to run this Sunday to Saturday… **sigh**  =)

I will be better next week!  =)  I promise!  this weeks randomness reflects how crazy my week has been!

Sunday ~  128/365  ~  Give Me Flowers

once upon a time I told my new hubby not to buy me red roses for every holiday that men bring women roses for… b/c it feels too … well… driven… not from the heart…

I told him I would rather have flowers I love given to me randomly…

you know…”just because” he loves me…

but over the years… the flowers rarely came…

and I admit… I was disappointed…

after a few teary years…

(well… maybe not so much… maybe a few teary days in those years)

I realized Remembering details (like the kind of flowers I love)

is NOT my mans “gift”

neither is spontaneously picking me up gifts/flowers “just because”…

it is NOT his love language =)

you see folks…

I quickly realized…

it is not about the flowers

the Red Roses … or lilies…

its about the man behind the roses  =)

who daily shows me his love in SO many other beautiful ways

and sometimes…

he brings me red roses!!

(he really thought I was just photographing roses there… snicker snicker!)

sorry darlin!!

Saturday ~  134/ 365  ~ Visual Contrast (see… out of order!)

this little yellow balloon floated past my car today

I quickly grabbed my camera and snapped a couple shots

before it floated up up and over a building in less than a minute!

anyway… I played with them in Picasa… just for fun… =)

there is cool blue graffiti behind the one on the left

but I think I still like it better in black and white (mostly!) 😉

Do they count for Visual Contrast?


(cheating=) … taken in April during my blog break… so they are in my 365!)

one of the most important friendships you can have in life

is a sibling…

I love that my babies are good friends!!

they fight a little  =)

But mostly … they enjoy each others company!

for this I am grateful!!  =)

I pray they will be there for each other for many many years!  =)

Monday ~  129/365 ~  Before and After

too much dock?

not enough light?

maybe a little blurry?

Ah… better!  Bolder… more Majestic, no?!  =)

I have a couple more before and after… just for fun…

and well… to add to my 365 project!

Wednesday ~  131/365


rolling newspapers on water bottles…

for a seed project they are doing at Sammy’s “school” for home schoolers…


A Seed Starter kit!!  =)

One more FUN Before and After!!

hope y’all don’t mind!

I am such a cheater this week!!

I told ya… busy busy busy… but fun stuff going on… (snicker snicker)!

Thursday  ~   132/365


making “bones”  …

we are learning about the human body right now!


kinda creepy … kinda cool!

This week we will lay them out on a poster

which names each bone…

fun fun!!

Friday ~ 133/365  ~  Dark (does a Dark color count?)

I am OVER THE MOON… excited about these dark beauties!!

any guesses as to what they are?  =)

I’ll give you a clue….

they have something to do with this guy…

Tuesday ~  130/365 (out of order again… sorry!)

and being able to open my back door freely!

don’t let the hat fool you… he is NOT human…

though he would like to think he is!

Hopefully that beautiful dark fence will be up next week…

and I can open my door and LET THE DOG OUT…

without bending over and walking across the yard to put him on a chain!

=)     BLISS!!!   =)

Hope ya’all have something blissful to look forward to this week too!!

Sometimes Bliss is found in simple things ~ you know?!  =)

    I just love, love, love the way you do this. You flow everything so nicely. Adorable photos. Yay for the fence. I am so glad you are enjoying life and seizing your day. 🙂 Thanks so much for linking up with me each week. I feel special that I am one of the two things you do each week. Have a fantastic Sunday and see you next week. Oh and I love the one of the roses with your husband in the background. Mine rarely picks up flowers either. ha ha.

    Nice shots! The roses are gorgeous.

  • 6 Ashley Sisk yazmış:

    I love the story behind the flowers – you’re right…it’s really the man behind the flowers. How sweet. I also like the visual contrast shot.

  • 7 Sara Smo yazmış:

    That before & after shot is PERFECT! I love it.

  • 8 Lori@ Teacher Turned Mommy yazmış:

    great pictures. I really like the one of Merlin. how long did you get him to wear that hat?

  • 9 Gina yazmış:

    Oh – my hubs & I have that same conversation about the flowers & holidays. He didn’t give me any this year & I was happy about that. We already had lots of flowers in the house because the girls dance recital was the Saturday before Mother’s day & my mom was in town for the whole thing. So he would have had to buy her some too. So we just saved ourselves a whole lot of extra activity but avoiding it altogether. 🙂

    We all need bloggy breaks – no worries! Spring seems to be a hectic time. What a fantastic set of photos – good luck getting your fence put up. How exciting!

  • 11 Beka yazmış:

    ah, seeds, ships and flowers.

  • 12 Kimberley yazmış:

    Great post! I how you don’t just post photos but you tell a story with them. Great interpretations this week.


  • 13 Shannon yazmış:

    I love that you said it’s the man behind the flowers. So true! Looks like you had a great week!

  • 14 blueviolet yazmış:

    You are so sneaky capturing your hubs in a picture that way. LOL

  • 15 blueviolet yazmış:

    I also meant to say that my kids were always good friends too and still are. I hope yours will be the same!

  • 16 Dina @ 4 Lettre Words yazmış:

    These are so creative, Jenn! And, I couldn’t agree more with “the man behind the roses”. We are blessed, my friend!

  • 17 deb yazmış:

    Wow…lots of great shots! I love the friendship one. It’s wonderful that they are good friends. Oh, and yes, I do live in the capital of La!

  • 18 Buckeroomama yazmış:

    Looks like you had some fun putting this together! I love the story behind the Flowers. 🙂

  • 19 hershey's moma {amy} yazmış:

    Sibling love/friendship. I just had that conversation yesterday with my middle son. (the one closest to your sons age) Sometimes they need a reminder to keep the peace with their siblings if not just for the sake of peace but also for their relationship to continue to grow.
    A fence for Merlin!! I said it aloud and my daughter had to come running to see him… 🙂 Have a good day!
    P.S. you have a great husband… drying the dishes[?] priceless!

  • 20 Darcie yazmış:

    I couldn’t agree with you more…it’s the man behind the roses! It’s easy to buy a gift any day of the week…not so easy to be an amazing husband and friend Everyday of the week.

  • 21 Jen yazmış:

    Great pictures! I agree, it’s so nice to have kids that are great friends!

  • 22 naomig yazmış:

    Blogging breaks/sporadic blogging are absolutely necessary, do not feel guilty for that. You’ll get back into it.

    I totally agree about flowers from the heart and not on flower holidays, and it being the man behind the flowers. That being said, it’s been 9 years since I got flowers, and sometimes that bums me out a bit… however, I know I am loved and appreciated, so it really SHOULD NOT bum me out. 🙂

  • 23 Pennie at Mom Thoughts yazmış:

    Awwww…roses!!!! Love ’em! (And I love gettin’ ’em, too!) I got a bouquet of mixed flowers for Mother’s Day…love those, too!

    I really like your contrast pic SO MUCH! I have to figure out how to pull that one off…hmmmm…you’re so CLEVER!!!!

  • 24 He & me +3 yazmış:

    I adore your flower pictures and the man behind the flowers quote. So nice. Love the picture of your kids too.
