It is fun watching these boys play!

Life... and football

We are having a gorgeous fall so far!!! 
I love the crisp mornings and warm afternoons!
I got home from subbing and Oren is acting out. Yikes. He was good for Miss Shannon! Oh kids have been doing this to their mamas for ages. Why oh Why.

2nd Frontier game of the season is tonight! Lion's Field. Can't wait.
I took these at last week's game.

Friday evening post

The sale was great! AND FUN! And tiring. We made memories, sales, we really had a good time. Several have asked when the next one may be... hmmm we'll see.
Working with Marianne, Maria and Liz was wonderful! And the MANY friends that came by! Wow! I feel blessed.
Flashback Friday, Hazel Jane

This kid has a lot of ideas about a lot of things. He has a lot of determination too.

We got these darlings healthy and up to weight! To think 5, 6 weeks ago we were bottle feeding them! 
They will now be spayed (turns out they are both females) and eligible for adoption. This fostering is rewarding. The Animal Shelter asked me if I wanted to take a crabby momma cat and two kittens or a couple of kittens in a group of five that need extra love... we'll see probably two more kittens.

Watching Hazel care for these kittens is amazing! and she understands our role in this.

Baseball this weekend in Spokane. These guys played hard! It was a good Sunday.

Football was good too but it POURED down rain and we had two injuries. yikes.

Oren stayed mostly dry. He enjoyed the stroller and an old handheld game from the early 80s! Vance's old game.

 Preparing for my upcoming sale has been a lot of work and fun! 

 Oren is having fun with the set up!

All of this sale prep has sure encouraged this girl to "play store"!

Life on a Tuesday morning

I proceeded through yesterday with this feeling of being lonesome.

My sis Natasha had sent me a pic of succulents and decor on her back patio and I missed her so. I found a little bucket here at the Shops on Alder and the galvanized treasure has CASE on it. I was able to give that to her when they were here in August. That is part of her patio decor. 

Oren and I are really missing the kids while they are at school. Oren likes to pretend with me but much prefers pretending with Hazel. 

My kids are plugging along in school with little complaints and some fun stories. Willem got 100% on his pre-test so doesn't have to take his spelling test Friday - that was a highlight! 

This SALE that I am hosting on September 21st will be really fun. 

These empty frames $6 each

I'll sell some of these if Oren will let me.

Hazel, with the story book house


I painted this table last night with Oren and Hazel's help! 
Stencils are user friendly.

Chair and table also for sale at the vintage sale! 

The new neighbors have had to listen to me sand furniture at 7 a.m. I do this in my pjs with kittens running around, drinking coffee. It is a good way to start the morning.

At Play!

We had LOTS of fun with these little people yesterday! 

 The grandma wanted to climb a tree!
So did grandpa! 

Hazel's playdough cake!

 Oren's favorite topic of conversation "the cow head"
Oren with his "steering wheel" - can-am fun!
