Tuesday's Tidbits: May 3, 2011

I'm suffering from writer's block this week. I believe much of it has to do with all the "busy"ness of late. There are so many end of school year activities, concerts, swim meets/clinics, etc. this time of year. Then there's that little thing about a 20th wedding anniversary at month's end. Mr. Sister and I are actually considering celebrating by going (gulp!) skydiving! Also, the newly planted vegetable garden needs daily tending. Additionally, we are also gearing up for a family vacation to NYC in early June. Then later, that same month, I am planning a visit to see  my family and friends with a flight to Kansas. Oh, and as an added bonus, Munchie Boy will be undergoing an Esophago-gastro-duodenoscopy (EGD for short) later this week (to determine causes and effects of his chronic reflux). So all in all, my writing has had to be put on the back burner for awhile. I will try to jump in when I can so please bear with me until I am able to get back on a regular blogging schedule.

So instead of the usual post I will share a few recent photographs with you.


This is my lovely Daisy. Daisy is plumb worn out. You see, Daisy loves to chase balls, her "Kong", birds, squirrels, cats, neighbor kids, etc. Mr. Sister decided to see if she would ever get enough of playing fetch. It took some time, patience, and perseverance.  I offer you photographic proof that Daisy, indeed, got enough! 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Sneak Peak:  I've ordered new glasses. Very different and very bold from my usual selection. Look closely at this 1st photograph. See the fun details? Note that the lenses that don't quite extend to the edges of the frame; the frames have a distinctive interior color; and the detail on the ear piece is really an interesting touch.


In the following photograph the temple detail is more obvious.


What do they look like on? Well, I'll let you have a small look-see:



(these are going to be so FUN!)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Does anyone else do this? 


You see, I am a very "visual" person. Due in large part to some recent personal changes, my sense of style is changing as well. I am becoming more bold when it comes to putting outfits together. However, before I try anything on, I lay them out to see if I can coordinate just the look I'm going for. 

The pink top you ask? One of my best Goodwill finds EVER: a Chico top, complete with tags, for $3. I also snatched up another one in purple as well (no tag but like new!) 


Oh, and I'm having fun with jewelry choices too!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Can't get over the size Munchie's feet are beginning to be!

Life: Better with ice cream, don't you think?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Not much else to blog about today. 
It is now time to get back to the business of the day. 
Thank you all for dropping by.

Since you're such a "visual" person and you're battling writer's block, perhaps you should check out my Monday Morning Photo Prompt: MMPP

Everybody's welcome to join in!

I've been blocked for weeks and weeks. It sucks. Here's hoping yours passes quickly.

LOVE the new glasses! Totally cool. I need new ones, too. My current ones are three prescriptions ago. I wear contacts much of the time, but late at night or early in the morning I prefer the glasses. BUT...progressives are so expensive, I'm trying to tough it out. The Engineer needs new ones worse than I do.
I hope Munchie's procedure goes well. Sure sounds like a busy place around your place!

Happy early anniversary!!! I have always wanted (but been too chicken) to go skydiving! You guys should go for it!!!

My prayers with Munch during his procedure. I had to undergo an EGD...umm...7? years ago. I think. I dunno. Mine was fairly uneventful. Hiatal hernia and GERD were the diagnosis. Of course, you know, main cause was ignorance...but that's a different matter altogether. Praying that Munchie's is uneventful and helpful in diagnosis!!!

Now I want ice cream!!! Mocha Frappuccino, to be exact!!! <3

Skydiving?! Yoy! You are a brave lady. Hope the EGD goes okay and gives you some answers.
I really dig the glasses and it's nice to see you making bold changes! I get that bug every spring time. Think I'll change my hair this year.
