its spring!


this is from aunt sheri's garden welcome spring!
Posted by Hello
so i know its spring and one big sign of that here is because of the road kill. every where you drive there is another animal that has been run over by an unsuspecting motorist. i dont know if i feel worse for the drivers or the animals. then i get grossed out by the dead animals hanging out on the roads because there are so many of them the waste dept cant keep up with them. so besides all of the beautiful tulips and daffodils spring brings road kill.

ice cream and friday

so this is why i like friday because I know that art & soul is open so i will hopefully make some $$ and because Chillin' on Sunset is open so i will have some ice cream after i close. yumm! i love ice cream except it is making me cold thinking about it. i have been enjoying the slow time because i know it will be so busy soon i wont even be able to think. i would like to go up the the art supply store and buy some canvas' to paint and put up in our house but that will have to wait until i have free time. because once summer gets here i wont be able to do any decorating.

man i hate rent

so today i have been working on my store lease and looking at the charges and it blows my mind how much money i throw away...i mean i know i get to have my store here and sell my pottery but really how much more money could i make if i didnt have to pay for rent and in the long run if the money was going to a mortgage aleast i would have a building after many years of paying. so i am not only paying rent for the store but also for us to live in a house we pay rent...so two payments a month that i may as well be burning the money...it is so frustrating. i am going to pray about housing for us..i know right now isnt the right time to buy but maybe God will open a door in the future. i am thankful for what i have dont get me wrong i could be spending ALOT more on my house God has blessed us incredibly.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY COUSIN JIMMY!

Happy Birthday to you....hope you have a fun day and dont have to go to work! Today Cousin Jimmy is 20...no longer a teenager!! Holy Guacamole!

i heart squirrels

so as many of my friends may already know i have an obsession with squirrels. since moving to cape may, nj we have a lot more squirrels around then in long beach, ca. this is very exciting for me. so for christmas i got a "bird" feeder that is easy for the squirrels to eat out of and a bag of corn (i put corn because i dont like birds just squirrels and birds dont go for the corn) so on sunday i had 2 or 3 times when i came around the corner of our house and scared an unsuspecting squirrel. then again today i got to see one eating and he or she seemed to really enjoy the feast i laid out for my furry little friends. i have not be successful in snapping a photo of them because they are very fast at sneaking away. but i did take a few from far away and a picture of the feeder that i will post later. and to go along with my squirrel addiction i got a squirrel's gone wild shirt for my birthday from corrie & laura and i decided to wear it last night! thanks girls.

the new guy on the block

so the small town that we live in is growing or atleast the surrounding area is growing. we recently got a Lowes and Joe Canal Liquor and Hollywood Tan in Rio Grande which is about 8 miles from our house. The one that is causing a big fuss is Hollywood Tan...people are so excited to be able to tan for $19.99 per month. This became evident to me a few weeks ago and then again today when we were shopping for a surfboard the ladies in the store were having an indepth conversation about the hollywood tan place...it made me giggle.

Light Up Shoes

so i have been looking on the internet today for "Light Up Shoes" for a friends birthday present...and have had no luck. If i wanted to buy clear shoes with lights in the heels for prom then i could get them....but i am not looking for prom shoes i am looking for sneakers like what all the little kids have...no luck so far. i think i might try to make some with led lights...but then they wont turn off...unless i can find led lights that are motion activated. i am on a mission...wish me luck!

this is cousin pam and baby nate. he will be 1 week old on sunday.

scrapbooking

so i like to scrapbook...sometimes i feel like it is outdated though. so i am a little bit behind in my scrapbooking...it depends on how you judge time. i could be a lot behind...so last night david was working and i didnt feel like working so i scrapbooked. i finished 2002 and now i am working on 2003...well i havent started 2003 but that will be the next step. one wierd thing is that 2002 is very slim - i must not have had a good camera or maybe i lost film and didnt get it developed, because it is much skinnier then all of the other years of our married life. myabe the 2nd year of marriage is boring i dont know. so i decided 2002 and 2003 can go in 1 album...hopefully that doesnt make the album too thick. (yes i am worrying about the thickness of a scrapbook - how pathetic)after 2003 i have to start ordering prints because we got the canon digital rebel and just look at our pictures on the computer now (this takes me back to the outdated scrapbooking) i can now order books from apple that have captions and my photos and are bound and much smaller then my scrapbooks...so when i do finish 2003 i might change my method...i havent decided yet, but when the time comes i might go from my scrapbooking to ilife booking.

this is my friend brittany...she was sick yesterday. i hope she is feeling better today.

pizza model

so today i was at Art & Soul (getting ready to open) and i went next door to get some delicious Louie's Pizza and the owner of Louie's was outside with a table set up and a pizza on it and veggies and he had a disposable camera taking pictures to get blown up and hung in his restaurant...i couldnt help but offer my camera and picture taking for him. David put up one of the 70 pictures i took...pizza is a great model, it is so good it doesnt talk or run away or complain and it lets you put veggies and olive oil and cheese around it and never worries about being upstaged. I really felt like i was treating it very nicely...it made me giggle how much attention i was paying to a pizza..(actually i think i photographed 12 pizzas) enjoy!! YUMMY!!! click here

back to real life....sorta.

so i flew back to new jersey on thursday night and arrived in philly at 9am...via detroit (ROCK CITY) my husband and his mom picked me up from the airport, unfortunately David (my husband) was not feeling too good and he actually got sick on the side of the highway...poor boy. so then i took care of him and we pretty much slept all day friday and then we went to get some ice cream at chillin' on sunset - Jimmy's ice cream parlor (david's cousin)...the next day i was feeling good and rested so we hung out at david's parents and then went looking for a surfboard for me...(my birthday present from my dad) i havent gotten one yet, but did locate a few prospective boards. then we went to wawa and got hot dogs...i really wanted them from lemon tree but they are closed...so wawa hot dogs and bbq chips worked. (and they are cheap) then back to chillin' for soft serve and peanut butter cups...well after about an hour i started to feel really sick and so david took me home and i did get really sick...i was up all night visiting with our newly fixed toilet...thank goodness he fixed it earlier that day. lucky for me other wise i would have had to hold the plug down so the bowl would fill up. i missed church on sunday and still didnt feel too great. i had a pretty bad fever and the chills...no more puking so that was good. today i feel like a new person!! we are going to get our car registered and hopefully it will be painless...you never know when you go to the DMV...except here it is called the MVC...so maybe since they have a different name it will be easier. well i am off to do some work and then to the bank. sorry if i grossed anyone out...i could have gone into much more detail but i will spare you those nasty details.
