My girls have all been playing tennis all summer. The big girls are more involved at this point with muliple tennis camps and now they are currently in a state tournament. It's going to be a busy week of tennis around here.
We had just pulled over at the first available safe location (on our way home from our vacation) so that I could take a turn driving and as I got out of the car this very cool beehive "monument" was right in front of me. I can't remember where we were... after Moab and before Price, but I had to pull the camera out despite all the children complaining.
I was quite shocked to find this creation in literally the middle of nothing. Loved it. I have the thing for beehives, not sure why. Contemplated a collection... maybe someday.
Not sure why I associate Italy with geraniums, but I do. I have a little Il Divo playing, still full from the delicious sushi we had at Mikado's tonight and I'm working on a project.
Oh... a couple of fun things as well.I am taking a class by Lisa Damrosch over at Big Picture titled "Scrapbooking, It Matters". It's a cute little album. Of course I don't follow directions so I will have to start posting my book in a couple of days.
Shimelle has a new fun class starting up as well. Love her classes. They are affordable and always full of inspiration!
Someone once asked why I would take a scrapbooking class (actually now that I think about it... it was probably one of my daughters). As I have contemplated this and read an interesting discussing over on Kelli's blog, I have come to the conclusion that it's for the inspiration. I might not follow the teacher's directions and more often than not my finished product is nothing like the original, but it's a starting off point. It's getting the creative juices flowing. It's for fun.
We adore Mr. Darcy here. The BBC version of Pride and Prejudice is one of our favorite movies. At the book group the other night Candice recommended "Austenland" and it did not disappoint. It was delightful... a quick read and so charming for all those Colin Firth fans. Reading it out loud with the big girls now.
One day I happened to quote a line from the movie and a young man from our neighborhood smiled and said, "ahhhh. You too." I questioned him about having watched Pride and Prejudice, he simply replied, "I have four older sisters." Something I suppose our little men can look forward to.
