This blog was formerly dedicated in 2009 to my Dad who died of Alzheimer's in 2013. It's been three years now...and I find myself missing I am re-inventing my blog... because, after all, life is about moving through, and going forward...

Talent, Injuries, Cuteness and Challenges...

This is the card and envelope my sweet Sister
made for me for my birthday...

These are $1.00 flip flops from Michael's,
that my talented Sister adorned
with paper flowers she made.
She made me a pair
and sent them to me.

She has many instructional videos
on her blog:
if you wish to learn how
to make the flowers
or some cards.

I burnt my middle finger
of my right hand
 on our new
toaster oven last Friday.
That wad of gauze gets in the way
in a major way
when I type...

Here is my precious little girlie dog,
sitting patiently
by my chair
waiting for me
to finish her photo shoot
so I will pick her up
and pet her in my lap...

This is Izzy's fake smile
when I ask her to smile
for the camera....

This is my messy desk
where I write on my blog
I need a make over desperately
I need to make it
way more inspirational.
I have a very talented blogger friend
who is going to
give me some ideas.
I will keep you posted...

It looks like Izzy's hair has grown out a lot. She is looking very cute and I love her smile.
Love the flip-flops and card also. I hope you had a great birthday.

That was nice of your sister.
And sorry about the toaster. Can't trust those cheap appliances.

Hope your poor finger gets better quick!

I loved Izzy's fake smile; I think she is adorable!! these poor dogs of ours when we take their pictures and you know they would rather avoid the flash if at all possible

I like your computer area where you blog. It looks comfy and homey!

your sister is very talented indeed! I like how she "dressed" up those flip-flops; they look great!!

ouch on your finger!! that would definitely get in the way of typing; hope it heals quickly!



A wonderful post and pics to match, hope your finger improves.

I love Izzy's smile...!

I haven't had time to visit my favorite bloggers lately, so I have missed a lot. Happy Belated Birthday. Your sister must be such a joy to you. :-)

I hope your finger is better soon. It look sore...!

Oweee! burns are so painful. Hope you heal fast. Love the Izzy pictures, especially the smile.

Hope your finger is healing well now. Your sister is very skilled, I especially love the flipflops.

Best wishes, Gill

The sandals are adorable!

Praying your burn heals quickly! Not much that hurts worse than a burn.

Izzy is a cutie pie!

Are you wanting to redesign your blog or the area around your computer? I do most of my blogging at my work office. The one at home needs some SERIOUS work! It was on my summer bucket list of things to do but I'm dubious!
