Happy Friday!

Joining Mrs. 4444's @ Half Past Kissin Time for Friday fun! 

Happy Friday! 

This girl is finally coming home tonight! 
Summer break has officially started!
Can't wait to see her.....

I started my new job this week.....
I'm beat....
but I really like it.....
It's going to be challenging....
I need to build my working stamina up again...
Four months of unemployment made for a lot of down time...
I'm happy to not be spending my time online and on interviews! was the worst! 

Sophie is adjusting....
She will be happy to see Katelyn 
It means less time being left alone....

Now if Mother Nature can switch back to Spring I'd be so grateful!!
and if someone could go grocery shopping for me
and do the laundry I'd appreciate it...
I'm tired! 

Happy Weekend!

Sophomore Year coming to an end already......

Seems like yesterday we loaded my car up to take her back to school for her Sophomore year....

First day of class

How I think these two started most their days 
with style and attitude!

She had a great year....became involved in Student Government Association
In January she became the president!

Face timed with us 
(not as much as I would like...)

Started a club called Campus Cursive
She is president of club 

These two surely on their way to Starbucks or White Rabbit for Macaroons! 

Race for a Cure

Tropical Spring Break! 

Pittsburgh MS Walk

 Seton Hill Color Run

What a year she has had....
Finals next week 
Moving into apartment off campus
 home on Saturday!

Wednesday Hodgepodge

Joining Joyce @From This Side Of The Pond TODAY!

1. April showers bring May flowers or so the saying goes. Are you blooming where you're planted as we begin the month of May?

Spring is slowly among it's way here.....trees are bare but close to popping! We have had rain followed by more rain...the hopes for the sun shining is days away. 
2. On a scale of 1-10, with 1 being no big deal, and 10 being full scale panic, rank your fear of spiders.

I'm a 5 ! I can kill them but afterwards usually get the willies! Also depends how big they are! 

3. May is National Salad Month (who knew???)...besides lettuce, what are two must-have ingredients in your favorite salad?

Tomatoes and peppers....or black olives. 
4. I mentioned on my blog last week that my Daughter1 will be moving to Washington State after she is married. Of the following sites in the Northwest, which would you most like to see in person-Crater Lake (Oregon), Seattle (Washington), Vancouver (British Columbia), San Juan Islands (Washington),  Mt. Rainer (Washington) Oregon Coast (Oregon), Mt. St. Helens (Washington), or Olympic National Park (Washington)

Of all those I haven't been to Vancouver and Crater Lake so either would be nice. My favorite is the San Juan Islands.....she will love visiting those, even for just the day! 

5. This coming weekend marks the 140th running of the Kentucky Derby...when did you last race (literally or figuratively) to cross a finish line?

It's been so long I can even think....unemployment gives you a lot of time to get things done.
6. What is something little you love?

I love red hots.

7. Would you say you are more of a visual, auditory, or kinesthetic learner? Elaborate.

Kinesthetic for me I can watch and listen but actually doing physically is the way I learn. 

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

18 days until Katelyn is home for the summer.....I can't wait! It's going to be a quick and busy summer for her. It's the last one she can work until after she graduates. From spring semester on she will start her grad program and go year round with little breaks. She really  needs to work day and night cause the girl can spend! If she is reading this she surely is rolling her eyes at me! 

Happy Wednesday!

Sundays in my city-Eternal Flame Falls

 Joining Unknown Mami this Sunday for
Sundays in My City

Last Sunday we hiked to Eternal Flame Falls in Chestnut Ridge, Orchard Park. It's about 25 minutes from our home and a 1.5 mile hike down a creek bed. It was a beautiful day for a hike....temperature wise but it was a muddy mess and slippery. I'm not much of a hiker...I wish I was! Our first group of people we past, I said we almost there?....They said not even close.....I have to say I was ready to be almost there. I passed an 70 plus year old Grandma on her way up so I thought, if she can do it so can I! But in my mind I thought how in the world did she do wasn't a hard hike in altitude just steep at times and slippery, plus you cross the creek several times jumping from rock to rock, tree branch to tree branch.

See the flame to Katelyn's right. I guess methane gas escapes this shale creek reservoir .
It was a pretty sight...kinda stinky like rotten eggs and really crowded....not Disneyland crowded but too crowded for a hike!

Sophie loved it
She was a mess
She barely moved for two days after hike
I was a little sore too
I'm pretty sure that grandma was too!

Yes nature amazes me....I'm in awe of it's difference and beauty.

2. Down to earth, four corners of the earth, move heaven and earth, not have an earthly chance, or salt of the earth...which earthly idiom have you most recently encountered? Explain.

Probably down to earth...I try to surround myself with people more like that.

3. Share one piece of advice you might give a newly engaged couple.

Communicate communicate communicate never stop!

4. When did you last engage someone to perform a job, task, service, home repair, or improvement? On a scale of 1-10 (ten being the best) how would you rate their work and/or your satisfaction with the job or service provided?

My hubby always has a honey do list going he loves to fix things....always a 10!

5. When did you last find yourself engaged in small talk? Are you awkward or an expert or somewhere in between?

Last night with our neighbor....I think I'm pretty good but sorry I struggle with people in WNY are bad at small talk it's awkward and almost non existent! 

6.  What was the last historic place you visited?

Haven't been anywhere in so long I can't think.....probably Niagara Falls! 

7. The world would be a better place if we just__________________________.

Treat others the way we would like to be treated! It's just that easy! 

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

Happy Wednesday!

Be happy and lose the expectations......

Do yourself a favor and be happy....

It's just that easy....

I want to say whats on my mind....
Lose the expectations...
Life is too short to be disappointed because of expectations...
Especially when you yourself 
do not do what your expecting others to do...
