Putting Up My Feet


Literally, we’re putting our feet up. This has been a long week.

  • A Memorial Day game at Royals Stadium. Great tribute to Veterans and a little teary eyed moment for me. Love seeing people honored that deserve it. But no win for the Boys in Blue unfortunately. And back home and in bed by 1 am. Up next morning at 5:30. Getting too old for that.
  • Three 7:20 pm softball games in a row. No wins ūüė¶¬† (Secretly I like getting supper out of the way early though.)

So sitting home on a Friday night watching stuff on Tv was just what the doctor ordered.

I began my softball game run with a new crochet project. And yes, I crocheted at the Royals game even though my family protested. (They were afraid ESPN would show a clip of the fans ‘enthusiasm’ I’m thinking. ha)


View from the truck seat at¬†softball game #3.¬†One of these days I’ll sit down by the field if I ever get my stadium chair out of storage. Until then, Ron finds me a parking spot so I can have a view from there. Still not sure of myself with the knee issue from December. Here’s a link to that. It’s about 90% recovered. If this lovely Missouri weather was more stable, I think I’d be 100% by now. But it is what it is.


Here’s the view from my couch and a peak at the color scheme. Lovin this!! More ‘views’ to come.



It’s Time for a Smilebox

Thinking back on Kirsten’s Senior year. I decided it calls for a Smilebox. I have recently learned a version of Moon River written by Henry Mancini for the banjo. Pardon my feeble attempts but I did my best.

The lyrics *google them* seem appropriate to a graduate’s¬†future (and we happen to love Audrey Hepburn)

I hope you’ll enjoy our trip down memory lane:

Some Butterflies

Recycling got me through a Butterfly theme last week.


Cereal Boxes became lacing shapes.


Old tagboard¬†Butterflies helped us find ‘our number’


Expired posters from a Mom’s workplace were donated to let us practice counting sets. More about what’s on the reverse side later.


Scrap paper from cuttings became a part of our Mother’s Day gift.


Ta Da!!!! A Butterfly Magnet for Mom’s refrigerator!

Happy Mother’s Day!!
