Productive Day

In a non scrappy way. Spent 3 hours outside edging, weeding & planting. Roasted my hinney off (I wish) and got a little sun. Sat on my deck and listened to the birds & waterfall while admiring what I'd accomplished :)

Here are a couple of pics of the view from our deck. I had to resize the pics to cut down on the upload time so they aren't as clear as usual. If anyone knows how to get crystal clear pic on here I'd love to know!

The pond

 Quick shower then a trip to Kalamazoo for an orthodontist appointment followed by meeting up with my friend Lyn and shopping. Found some capris for myself and a couple of outfits for Mimi. who knew it would be so hard to find shorts with an inseam bigger than an inch!!! What are these designers thinking? Do they let their 12 year olds run around in short shorts?  Mimi is so sweet, she always remembers to say thank you :)

Quick stop at Guitar Center for strings & picks for a very put out Matthew, "Why can't I go too?!". Sorry dude...girl's night out. Here is a pic of my own Bubba Ruth :) at his last baseball game.

Yummy dinner at Noodles. I highly recommend the Japanese pan noodles with shrimp.

A stop at Hobby Lobby for a new Cuttlebug embossing folder "Allegro" (lovely music notes), a SEI paper pack from the clearance section, and a new ultra fine point Sharpie. Off to Micheals, not one thing to entice me so I purchased adhesive. Our final stop was Jo Ann's. Can you believe I'd forgotten my coupon! I actually walked out with nada!

Sorry no scrappy goodness to share, just everyday tidbits :) Hope you had a great day too!
