Thought I'd take my friend Nikki up on her Sunday blog challenge...even though it's Monday!
I never used to love summer because it was TOO hot and humid but for some reason, I'm really enjoying summer this year....Here's my list...

Top 10 Things I Love About Summer...

1. Watermelon...who doesn't love that sweet, pink, juicy

2. Gardens...I love my veggies, herbs and flowers and I've
been blessed with a green thumb! Thanks Mom!

3. relaxing and refreshing!

4. The smell of fresh, cut grass...

5. Grilling's easy and the smell of the grill just
seems to beckon summertime!

6. Driving in the car with the windows down, my arm
hangin' out, gettin' some sun!

7. New sunglasses...I LOVE new ones! It seems like I
always buy at least 3 pair...sheeesh...

8. Flip flops...even though I can't wear them anymore,

YAY! How do ya like my new banner? I feel like I've worked on it for the past year. Slight exaggeration but none the less, I love it! Thanks for your help Marjorie!

Back to reality though.
Plan to work on my ABC layouts today. I'm waaaaay behind but have enjoyed the pages that I've completed so far. But I still need to journal on them. I think that's what I'll do before I start anything else. Also need to get hoppin' on my Dad's Father's Day gift. Cutting a vintage license plate has me a bit nerveous but I know when it's all done, Dad will treasure it!
Off I go....

Who knew one could spark up a friendship being so far away! She's in Alberta, Canada...Great talking to you again Krystin! Now get scrapping! I haven't seen a LO from you in months!

I was visiting my friend Marjorie's blog ( today and saw that she had added this cool "subscription" service to her blog, so I decided to copy...LOL! Obviously, there's nothing exciting to subscribe to on my pitiful blog but if you'd like to know when I have posted something new, then type in your email address, hit "subscribe me" and it'll let ya know! Thanks Marjorie! Hope you don't mind! **smiles**
