Free Vintage Tall Ship Image and New Shop Announcement

Wow! Did you think I deserted you? I can't believe it's been that long since I've posted. What have I been up too? Well, it seems like I've been super busy but I can't remember hardly a thing that's taken up my time. Is that having a senior moment or it is just called life? lol

Well, let me see... what has happened....

Trevor's come home! We are so glad he arrived safely from Afghanistan. He's back to doing his normal activities and guess what? He proposed to his girlfriend and she accepted. We're all very excited about it! They're talking maybe a September wedding, but nothing definite yet.

We celebrated 6 birthdays... whew that's a lot in that short amount of time. We're still in the middle of a legal battle - I'm so tired of it, I just wish it would hurry and get over.

Our temperatures around here have been outrageous, like a lot of other poor souls in this great country of ours. I think we've been in or around the 100 degree mark for 2 weeks now. Thank God for air conditioning... lol And we're also in a drought... very little rain to relieve that temperature. But the tomatoes are doing just fine - can't wait for that first home grown tomato to ripen up and we're deep in the sweet corn season. Hubby just brought me about 200 lbs of corn to shuck and freeze... guess I'll be busy for a while.. lol

We had hardly any sour cherries this year and the berries were a little sparse, although we did get enough for Jordan, my granddaughter to make her first cherry and her first raspberry pie. She did a great job and the family really enjoyed them.

I'm very excited to announce that I have created a new store. I have wanted to offer individual images for quite a while now and felt that the fees associated with Etsy or ebay made this cost prohibitive. So I joined a new site - Art Fire. Have you heard of it? I'm a little slow on checking out these kinds of things, so you may have already visited it. lol But anyway, it is another great community very similar to Etsy. So if you have a moment, take a look at my new store by clicking here . I'll be adding more individual images as time permits, so be sure and visit it often.

Today I thought I'd share a tall boat image with you. It's been so hot here that just thinking about ocean breezes makes life a little more bearable. So as usual, make sure you click on the image before you save it.

Well, that's it for now, I promise it won't be so long before my next post.

Have a great week, plumb full of smiles!
