Made several of these years ago

As you can see it is missing a few marbles here but we made this probably 10-12 yrs. ago. We got bowling balls free from an alley and then purchased stones and away we went. Depending on color of balls and the stones to how they turn out.

My daughters cruise

My daughter and 2 girlfriends went on a cruise 6-6-6-13. They LOVED it! Jaymee is the one in the middle.

The picture of the ocean down in the left hand corner you can see stuff in the water and they swam with the dolphins there. They went to 4 countries.

We have had a few rainbows this spring. This was around 5-27. We had a beautiful double one, one night when we were taking the computer in but didn't have the camera. It was really a big, BRIGHT double one. I just love rainbows!

A couple of our Clematis behind the garage and a wild Tiger Lily.

Computer is back and running!

So glad to have my computer back. I have read several books in this down time and have actually got some other stuff done in and out of the house.
