rain, rain you made my day!

Yes...it's raining, it's pouring and I couldn't be MORE thrilled! The rain not only makes my little flowers happy...


(yes! I figured out the new camera...more on that below!)


but it means 2 outdoor events I was supposed to be at today were cancelled!! yipppeeeee! Okay, that sounds awfully mean of me...but I am tired. Henry has a cold. My husband has been out of town all week and did I mention I'm tired? Jake had a Walk/Run event at school this morning...now postponed until Monday. ****smile**** Baseball game tonight at the coldest, windiest field you will ever visit...cancelled. ****smile**** NOW...I can stay in my comfy, warm, cozy house and make a normal dinner and get some work done tonight!! yipppppeeee! It's the little things folks:)


Onto my new camera. This is pathetic...but I told you I was technologically challenged so maybe you won't make TOO much fun of me. I was trying to plug the webcam USB thing into my camera...that's why it was way too big. ummmm, yeah. So, once I figured that minor detail out...I loaded the new software and uploaded my pictures...but only some showed up??? Explain that one to me!? Regardless, I was still pretty excited! I need to find a big block of time (hahaha) to sit down with the manual and learn how to use the thing correctly! anyhooooo...Here are a few things I've been workin' on...


new french couples...



commissioned lulettes...

and the hardest thing of all?? Getting used to my new glasses!!! I haven't worn glasses in probably 15 years and was really struggling lately with reading, computer, painting...close up stuff. It is so hard getting used to wearing these things!!

wow...this is the picture I choose to show you!? At least I could have grabbed some lipstick..eek. Moving on... Jake's school had a wonderful art show the other night. I enjoy it so much every year! The kids make the MOST amazing things. Their creations are so pure and so inspiring!!! Kindergartners all the way to 5 th graders display their lovely work. Here are some of my favorites from the younger kids!!



uuuuhhhh...so cool! I wish I had more pictures to show you. Don't you love that guy with the red hair!!??
I'm off to finish cooking...I'm making soft tacos and yellow rice and beans and avocado and...who knows! Hope you guys all have a cozy Friday night too!!! xoxo...jenn

Love the new pictures Jenn....and the glasses! Very artsy:) My glasses spend 99.9% of time at the bottom of my handbag. It's a bummer getting older.
Have a great weekend!

YOu are lovely! I really still think you are going to love your new camera. Anywho.. love the little houses.. you are amazing!

michelle said...

Yeah for the new camera! I am awful in the technology department. My software will only load about 15 pictures at a time. I am sure there is a reason and a solution but I don't know what it is! Loooooove the art show! That is one thing I miss about our old school, they did one this one doesn't. Cute glasses! Did the floor roll? That always happens to me with a new prescription! Oh, and I am so happy for you, sometimes there is just too much going on in a day! Impressed too with you dinner plans. It is HOT here today, 102 I think, and I just don't want to cook.Although lets be honest, I never want to cook on Fridays! Have a great weekend!

I love those pictures from the art show...so cute. I also REALLY like your glasses; they really look good on you. I have some similar ones that I wear on occasion, but most of the time I wear contacts.

You look great with glasses! It takes time to get used to them... I've had them for 4 years and I still don't wear them regularly!
