Its already been a whole week since I last blogged!! Wowzers, and I don't like it. Blogger has not been letting me sign in! So blogging :p But this morning, it FINALLY let me sign in!! Yay! So this is prolly gonna be a really big post.  First off, I had a great week! I got my first sunburn last Wednesday, and even tho I got ZERO sympathy from anyone, it really didn't feel good. I laid out and read to much, and my chest hadn't been out in the sun much, so it kinda got scorched!

I've been swimming just about EVERY day for 2 weeks now, its been awesome. I love it. But I'm still not able to swim around 3 times, I'm too weak I guess, lol.
This last weekend was particularly good.  I went to the river w/Ez an Simeon (who is in Florida now) on Monday, and walked around the 2 islands there and found a nice amount of river glass! My pockets were bulging, though this pic does not look like it, they really were.

While I was walking, I heard this pathetic little wail, and looked up on the hill that grampa's house sits on, and saw this poor little baby sitting there looking at me, I can tell she is getting bigger! Poor Queenie, she misses me! And I miss her :(

There are still some wild flowers out too! I wish we had more, but oh well.

This is the river, I just love going there!

I wonder what could have made those type of tracks? hehe.

I am guessing these are raccoon  tracks...Idk.

And these were my finds for the day. Like my glass ring? Yeah, and thats a beer bottle! Lol, I'm thinking of throwing that one out :P

 And this is ALLLLL my river glass that I've collected over about 5 years. Someday my goal is to have enough to make a huge mosaic thing..Not sure what its gonna be quite yet.

This is Lulu being positively adorable..and weird... :D She's so spoiled! <3 <3 (oh, btw, in the background is my newest stuffed friend, a sock rabbit from SDC! he's so cute!)

On Friday, I was sooo bored that I decided to go to town with mom. I also needed to try and find some swim shorts, which I had no luck finding. But, I did hit the jack pot at a thrift store!!! You all know that I've been wanting a pair of cow boy boots, well, I've been keeping my eye out for some EVERYWHERE! And I FINALLY found me some amazing, Tony Lama, lightly used boots!! I was beyond happy. Here they are!

And then I found me some adorable AE deck shoes for a buck! oh, and the boots were only 2 bucks! What a deal!!!

I LOVE these, and have wanted some like them for a long time. So this just goes to prove, that if you are patient, and don't go out and spend a ton of money on things you "want", that God will eventually provide for you!! Yes, I think it was a God thing that I found boots SO cheap, specially since we now have a HORSE!!! And I've been praying for some boots too...Now we just need to get mom a pair of boots..It will happen... (:

Oh yeah, I almost forgot, even tho I did NOOOTTT need this, it was cheap, and I think its cute and it looked good on me, so I got it too..hehe.
I have trouble finding fedoras that are not to tall or huge for my head. I guess I just have a small head!

Thursday was also a lot of fun. (yeah, i know, I'm going backwards in telling the events of my week!) We went hiking w/some good friends, and then back home to watch a movie and eat. It was a good day, on the way home me and Rene stopped at an antique store and I apparently had sold one of the rugs that I had for sale there, so I got paid $15, and then spend $5! I bought an adorable little blue pot, and then these 2 bottles for my window sill. I'm still addicted to bottles!!

Now on to Saturday and Sunday...I hope I'm not boring anyone...If I am...oh well, hehe ;)

The weekend had en "exiting" feel to it. haha...that was a joke. So It was Country Days in farmington, big whoop! haha, I've never even gone before! And never wanted to, but still, there was a parade, and I got to go to it. Only cos my brother was in it. There is gonna be this big christian MAN UP conference sometime in July, and the main speaker is Ken Graves, so all the men in our church have been doing things to get more guys to come to it. Like having a "float" in the Country Day's parade. Really jut 2 gold carts and a jeep with big MAN UP signs on them.  And they handed out 2,000 flyers for  MAN UP. So I went and spent the day with Lucinda (my pastors wife) and a bunch of the moms from my church and their kids. When we were walking around looking for a good shady spot on the sidwalks we looked like a parade ourselves! I think I counted 17 kids, 6 moms, and me. So thats 24 people! :) It was nice setting there watching the parade go by and being with my peoples. This here is my pastor, I call him Harrison or Pops, his name is Mike, but there are to many Mikes at our church..
And then this is Thanny James on the way home! He is WAY to cute!!! And of course, being a boy, would not pose for a pic, silly kid <3  I love him so much!! <3

Anywho, that was on Saturday, Sunday was a little more fun. First there was church, and a GREAT sermon, then I went to the Nursing hom after w/dad and Ez, those trips are always interesting. Then we went to an outdoor  Johnny Diaz concert at country days. There was a nice little turn out from my churchies, 30 or more of them. Then my very good friend Morgan an her little bro and dad came by, and it was so awesome getting to see them and hang out a little.  So I had a great time that day! Then..I came home...and took a short nap, then went to Grammas w/mom and Ez to mow the lawn..I didn't end up mowing cos I was super dehydrated and my eyes hurt and my legs were throbbing and I was miserable. So then I came home and went to sleep early after chatting w/my bf and being on facebook to much.

And now on to today...I've done nothing but read, eat, and go outside a bit and take care of my pup. And admire this pic of eggs that mom left on the deck one evening. I saw it out the window, then saw a kool photo in my head so I ran out and snapped this....I like it alot.
We also got a new drawing book in the mail today! I think I am really gonna love it! I've already drawn a pic out of it too!

So I guess I have not been completely unproductive today. But I guess I better go an do some more productive things. Such as hanging out laundry, putting more in, doing a math lesson, and Bioligy...And after that I will swim, and read! I LOVE SUMMER.
That is all. Have a nice week folks! I will try and blog again if I can!
