Good Morning! Wow! Can't believe today is June 11th! My how time flies when you are having fun! I have been at my DD's apartment for a week now. I have enjoyed being with her so much. I also have my darling Granddaughter, Alyssia with me and my youngest son! Life if Good! My DH will be coming in this evening and I am so anxious to see him and my two shelties! Wednesday was DH's birthday and missed being with him so intend to celebrate his birthday with him and family this evening. Tomorrow we are off, back to the Dallas area for my little cousin's wedding. Also, get to see my uncle who is ill with pancreatic cancer and I would love it if everyone remembered him in their prayers.

I haven't been crafting until today, I went and bought some basics at Joann's and Hobby Lobby. They are both having great sales on paper if you are in need of any. I have been coloring with my Copics everyday as I did bring those with me but nothing else. I got some gorgeous DCWV and K&Co paper at Joann's they had 40% off and then went to Hobby Lobby to get some of their Paper Studio Cardstock which was also 40% off. Wowzer, I sure saved a lot but also spent a lot! LOL! Never can have too much paper though! I love the way the Paper Studio cardstock cuts in the Cricut so really stocked up on that.

Still looking for another car but geez they are expensive! We haven't had a car payment in a long time and trying not to create another but once you really start looking, I want this one or that one and of course with every option known to man!! LOL! I have got to find one soon as I would love to head to the cabin as soon I return from Dallas and OKC! It has been so hot and humid here in OKC, I could use some fresh cool mountain breezes! Heck, I can always use some fresh cool mountain breezes! LOL! Anxious to get my fly rod and out and let those flies it the water for some fresh trout as well! Yummy!

Took my youngest son and granddaughter to see the Oklahoma City Memorial! I remember the day we pulled up to the fence a month after the bombing, my son was only 6 at the time so doesn't remember a lot but did remember the fence and the empty space where the building once stood. They have done such a beautiful job on the memorial it is a fantastic tribute to those that were forever changed on that dreadful day. If you haven't been to see it you need to put it on your must do list. As my darling granddaughter said, "No one can leave here untouched!" She is such a smart little girl. I think what truly got to her was when we mentioned how old the children would have been now. It has been fifteen years or was on the 19th of April. Those children will be forever young in our minds but they would be in their late teens or young adults now. Sobering to think how their young lives ended so abruptly. Pray that our nation never has to go through the acts of terrorism that was forced on us that day or on September 11, 2001! May God Watch over and protect us! ~ Amen

Have a great day everyone and I hope to have a few of my simple but new creations ready to post later today!
