It's time. . .

Here I go. . .  closing my eyes and taking the leap.  I’ll do what I always do; I’ll figure out the landing  on the way down.

It's official! 

This son of mine is now older then I am. 

Happy Birthday Honey! 

Love, Mom

the Pepper Mill

You remember this guy don't you? 

My little boy. . ."Stevie Wonder"

It seems like it's been so long since I posted last - I thought you might have forgotten. 

We all know this son of mine is my doer. 

His hands are always moving, always creating.   

But recently,  he has let some of the things he loves go . . . like woodworking.  Here once again, I see myself in him.  I have let blogging and my photography go.  It's not that Stephen and I don't really enjoy these things. We love them. But, you know how it is. Sometimes life just gets in the way and the things you really enjoy slip away. Before you know it. . .  a lot time has gone by.  

Last week I mentioned to my son that I haven't seen him working on anything lately.  I asked him what was going on. He just shrugged and said, "Hmm, I don't know? "

and then yesterday 

I heard the lathe running and I grabbed my camera. 

Without missing a beat Stephen stayed focused on his work.  He was making the pepper mill he told me he was going to make at Christmas time.  


I took his picture and then posted it on my blog.

Catching UP

I am totally off my blogging grove. I haven't posted, visited my blogging friends or up loaded photos in weeks.

 It just seems wrong to me. 

I didn't show you the wonderful Easter Eggs Liz colored with her girl friends. 

I didn't tell you about Leah ((the little girl next door )) buying Liz a best friend necklace and being so excited to give it to her.  

I didn't tell you, this child is four years old and just as sweet as she can be. 

I know I have told you she cannot talk but, speaks volumes. And, Leah will be sure to steal your heart. 

I didn't show you the fun Liz and Madelyn had a few days later.  

Madelyn is Leah's big sister. She is a sweety too. 

Sometimes, even the best of sisters have to play with their bestie on different days and color eggs. 

That's just the way it is. 

There is so much more to tell you. . . but first. . . I have to clean the kitchen.

the music in my life

It's been a world wind week with little time to post:

a visit from much loved aunt's, an impromptu recital, a surprise visit from cousins, a  Passover party, an Easter Celebration, and a 16th birthday for the girl that keeps  music playing in my life.

Inspiration by Leah. . .

"Today you are You, that is truer than true." 

"There is no one alive who is Youer than You." ~ Dr. Seuss 

If she could talk . . . I think this is what she might say. Sometimes silence speaks louder then words.

hard saying goodbye

Spring Break came to an end yesterday.  

We had to take Matthew back to the airport to catch his flight to Kansas City and then a ride on to the college

It was hard to say good bye.
