Art Contest

Today I gave my nieces and nephews an art project. I had picked up some wooden bird houses and some colored markers so they can decorate them. We are having a contest to see which one was the best. I couldn’t believe how creative they are! Not only did they color the bird houses but gluded on leaves and twigs. One of my nephews even made a swing attached to the birdhouse out of dental floss and a short straw! For children ages 3 to 7 to come up with such a design process I was very impressed. Me, I would have taken the crayons and markers and just painted the bird houses. These kids took it to another level. My family and I judged the finished project and of course they were all winners. The grand prize was one dollar and each child received a grand prize. It was a fun afternoon. It’s good to be with family.

 

Life is Good

Breakfast with the family! Gluten-free pancakes, organic syrup, and decaf coffee. Very nice. My family is very much into organic foods and because of that my diet has really changed plus the fact that my body cannot take any processed foods. This is what happens when you get older! This afternoon we are going to a chimpanzee sanctuary in Palm Springs. It is not open to the public but my sister has a close friend who is involved so we are lucky to be able to have a chance to go there. The kids are all so excited but then we all are. Life is good!

 

Such is Life

Nothing exciting happy today. Before I leave on a trip I always like to clean my house and the last thing I do is vacuum the carpeting. I like to come home to a clean house. One time my family and I went on a little vacation and we were gone a few days but when we returned to the house I saw foot prints on my carpeting. It seems that our home was broken into. The only thing stolen was a large water bottle filled with coins. We probably wouldn’t have noticed that they were gone so quickly if not for the foot prints on the carpeting. It’s a terrible feeling to know that strangers were in our home. You really do feel violated! After that happened we installed a burglar alarm system. Isn’t that how it is, first you get robbed then you put the alarm system in. Such is life!

New Hair

I just finished coloring my hair, took out all the gray. Thank God for preference by L’Oreal! I’ve been coloring my hair since I was 23 years old. The day Steven was born I turned gray. I should have known it was an omen of things to come!
