He Listened To My Wishes

Not those types
But the prayerful types
The ones I was wishing for last week
Because this week has been full of sun, well almost full lol, and Elizabeth has settled down AND today said goodbye at the door AND went to the window to wave AND did not shed one tear NOT ONE!!!
Just makes me wonder what was going on last week BUT not thinking too hard about that because I am enjoying this week :)

So we have been enjoying the sunshine, when Lucy and I have been around home, cos this is our busy week, and I took these photos yesterday while we were out in the backyard

Love seeing blossoms on the trees
Yes the sky was that blue, the photo is unedited!
Love that there will be lots of apricots on the tree
Well assuming there will be if this, below, keeps happening there might not be so many….

Yep she climbed the tree, bounced on the trampoline… did all the things we haven’t been able to do in a while because of the rain
See the length of the grass??
It’s been “going to be mowed” in a while but the weekends have been either busy or rained out!

Was nice to just bask in the sunshine


and spying my first tulip for the year, NICE indeed!!!!

What other news…
*Dave came home for lunch today, ME LIKEY :)
*Megan has been doing the ‘growing up’ program at school and it’s all interesting… I know why they think it’s good to have kids aware of such stuff but when you have a kid who thinks too much… well it’s interesting lol
*Jessica gets enrolled in Guides next week, she is excited, being she thought it was happening 2 weeks ago lol, and is loving the social side but not the late nights, which is funny cos she is only going to bed an hour and half later than normal but YOU CAN NOTICE THE DIFFERENCE!!
*Not long till we go away, YAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAY

Haven’t been doing anything creative, seems like forever but it isn’t, and when I have had time to do anything I have been plodding along with my last Scrap-n-Crop kit
The September one is my last, it’s been a whole 12 months since Project Scrap-Away, so my time on the DT commitment with Scrap-n-Crop is up
Sad but open to the ‘something new’ that may come along
Here are some peeks of the layouts I made with the September kit





Also today I made a decision
I have started uploading work to my SIS gallery again
It’s been over 12 months since I did and I am still wresting with myself as to what ‘capacity’ I use the gallery but I just miss being encouraged and inspiring others seems easier when you have a defined gallery so I am taking my work on the road, so to speak, and will see how that one goes.
Right-oh am off now to make my man a coffee and see if he will come nuggle on the couch for a while :) :)

Pin It Now!

  5. The photo with the dandelion is so cute. Great photos. I haven't been to the SIS website in a very very long time. Maybe I should now :)

  6. oh Sharmaine I am so glad this week has been a bit kinder to you and Elizabeth. What a beautiful photo of Lucy, such a cute girl. Hubby only just pruned our apricot tree yesterday we have been so busy but it is big and gets lots of yummy fruit. Excuse my ignorance what what is SIS? love to check it out. I hope things are ok with the rest of your family Sharmaine. Take care.

  7. hasn't the sun been wonderful? shame I had to work the last 2 days, raining here now of course!
    Hope all is well with your family..the sneaks look so cool, looking forward to seeing more :)

  8. Glad to hear that this week is brighter both personally and weather wise. Absolutely stunning photos Sharmaine, love the blue sky and blossoms. Pleased to hear you are going to start showcasing your work again too. It is always terribly inspiring. Love your sneak peeks and can't wait to see all revealed.

  9. And I love U more today than yesterday! :):):):):):):):):)

  10. Sharmaine, always enjoy seeing your lovely photos and those sneak looks lovely!

    hope you're enjoying this wonderful Friday and have a great weekend :)

  11. Wow Sharmaine - your peeks look absolutely fab! Can't wait to see the full lo's.

    Looks like spring is coming to your nekc of the woods sooner than mine. It's still very chilly here and no sign of blossoms but I know they'll be sticking their pretty little heads out very soon now!

    I'm soooooooooo glad that things are looking up for you this week. Thrilled that your uploading to SIS as well. I'm in the same palce as you wrt that. Haven't uploaded there for a looooooong time - then started doing it again last week. Unfortunately I'm not as famous as you over there so I don't think anybody noticed my "return". Can't blame them really - I've been neglecting my gallery for too long. Will be sure to pay a visit to your gallery today. :)

  12. might have stop by sis and comment :)
    glad you are having a better week
