Double Take

Several months back, my Mom was given an old photograph that someone had taken years ago of her. When she showed it to me, I was taken back at how much we look alike; although, she was much younger in this picture than I am today.

Has anyone ever said that you looked like somebody else? Perhaps, you resemble a family member, actress or maybe you just have a familiar face?

There's something about old, black & white photos...they speak so much...

Happy day!

One of my favorite stores is Costco. Where else can you buy a 3-6 month supply of toilet paper and enough peanut butter to feed an entire school of children lunch for a week?
ha ha...

I love their flowers their too. They always have such pretty colors & arrangements.

Do you shop at Costco? What's your favorite thing to buy there?

Happy day!

Garden Flowers

I wanted to share with you some more pictures that I took at the Stenzel Healing Garden. The flowers, trees & other scenery were so pretty...I couldn't pass up sharing these with you.

Rob just loves having his picture taken...NOT! :)

I love this guy...isn't he handsome?

I will sing for joy in God, explode in praise from deep in my soul! He dressed me up in a suit of salvation, he outfitted me in a robe of righteousness, As a bridegroom who puts on a tuxedo and a bride a jeweled tiara. For as the earth bursts with spring wildflowers, and as a garden cascades with blossoms, So the Master, God, brings righteousness into full bloom and puts praise on display before the nations.
Isaiah 61:10-11 (The Message)

Happy Friday!

For the Birds

Rob & I had some time to kill before we went to a meeting in Portland on Tuesday. So, we took a little walk around the Stenzel Healing Garden at the Hospital. What a beautiful stretch of trees & flowers. The therapeutic garden was created to offer some tranquility to patients, Doctors, families & visitors.

I especially enjoyed seeing some really unique birdhouses...

Don't you just love those houses? Wouldn't this be a fun project to tackle? What was your favorite one?

Happy day!

Make a careful exploration of who you are and the work you have been given, and then sink yourself into that. Don't be impressed with yourself. Don't compare yourself with others. Each of you must take responsibility for doing the creative best you can with your own life.
Galatians 6:4-5 (The Message)

Kooky offered to help with the ironing today...

At first he was a little tentative...

Okay...let's see how this thing works...

It's not working...

I think this ironing is for the birds...
(oh wait...I guess I'm a bird, technically speaking)...

Somebody, Please!!!

I'll try another shirt...

Why isn't this working???
AAAH!!! Just about ready to give up...

His cousins come to the RESCUE...
"Hey, have to turn the iron on first!!!"

"Oops!" ha ha...

Happy day!
