Is that a FACE?!

Hello all, hope this post finds you all well.  I haven't been doing any papercrafting lately because I have been ELBOW DEEP in kitchen construction with the HOTTEST paratrooper that has ever walked this great land of ours!  And I am happy to share his last name! BooYAH!  This weekend we are renovating our kitchen, but that is not what I came here to talk about.  I will talk more about that when I have completed pics to go with it.  What I do want to post today is a see if you guys are seeing the same thing I am seeing. We were kind of breezing through some old vacay pics and came across this one that we took at Fort Macon, NC. This fort has seen many battles and has some great history as well and the phenom beach just outside the walls. My husband snapped this pic, I hope you guys can zoom in on it and tell me what you see in the door? Leave me a comment and let me know what you think!

You know when you make a of those big, life changing changes, that as it approaches and starts to effect the way you do everyday things, and ya get those butterflies. You know, those BIG butterflies that start in your stomach and radiate into your arms and legs?  I am feeling that on a daily basis now as Monday, August 1st approaches.   See, I have made the decision to stop working part-time and begin a full-time position at the Endoscopy department  at the Veterans Hospital.  I am so proud to be a part of their team, but leaving a place you have known as home for the past 20 years is hard. I have been working for my current hospital since I was 19. Wow.   This doesn't come without some doubts, but, the Lord has lead me there, truly, and I know that I must keep my end of the deal. I was unsure as I interviewed and had a discussion with Him when I was finished.  I told Him that I was unsure, and that He would have to put me there if He wanted me there.  Well,  He did, so now I have to keep my end of the bargain.  God is good and He puts us right where we need to be. All we have to do is BE STILL, and listen.

Day of Reckoning

On May 1st, our elite team of military professionals successfully eliminated Osama Bin Laden. We as a country couldn't be more proud of their selflessness, courage, determination, and bravery. It is because of our military that we live in a country where we have the freedom to BE.  Thank you to the people of the UNITED STATES military, we love you, we appreciate you, and we will continue to love and support you.

"When it doesn't flush"

Aha!   Bet you thought I was gonna say it pours..which would be nice...but it didn't pour......and it sure didn't flush. Recently we have had a boatload of rain and  our "vintage" septic tank just couldn't take it anymore. It wouldn't drain and sooooo our toilet would not flush. I am sure you are wondering what could possibly make me devulge this info. Well, there is an interesting part to this story, when the oh-so-nice gentleman came to "evacuate" the tank we found that the lid was cracked. Not just cracked, but without the dirt on top of it  They tried to stop the shift and lift the lid, but once water got on top of the lid, it bellied up like an old dead fish, and  S...A...N...K.  So now I have a big gaping hole in my yard with a big piece of plywood over it, and a little makeshift fence, just to keep the kids, and the kitty from falling in to the poophole.  So, that my friends is what I have been dealing with today. I have no cool pics...yet. BUT did get a chance to stamp a muslin bag today, only its not quite finished. Leave me a comment if you happen to pop by, and check back in when you get a sec. Sayonara!
