This is called 'craft paper'

Making some of these is on my list... so 'in-vogue' and 'so cool' - planning to use leftovers from canvas drop cloth I have left from Ryan's faux roman shades made earlier this summer. Canvas drop cloth is a cheap way to go for fabric.
Football has started - Ryan turned 16 - and Pete turned another year....went to TC with my mom, Aunt Jan; Cousin Julie - enjoyed the water, the wineries and the cherries....
Varsity OL this year....
TC Cherries - ---
Sherry, Jan, Julie and Rita - Suttons Bay in July after we'd spent the morning waiting out the rain, then more rain, and even more rain!
Just turne 16 a few days ago and is holding his tickets to the U-M vs WMU game - - four of them to enjoy with friends.
Rachel graduated from HS - oops, she's not in the pic - just me and the sisters and mom...
Toodle loo - - enjoy what warmth may come our way in SE Michigan - - hard to comprehend that the high today was 64 and it's August 30th...we might have to dig out the gloves and mittens - ice skating on the horizon...

WoW - I can't wait till football starts !! Varsity practices start August 3rd! First home game is on August 28th. But, as you know, football is a year round commitment - so he's been weighlifting and still doing PT 3x/week. We see the orthopedic surgeon on Friday of this week to get the final 'blessing' for full tilt on football. Appears that the bone has been healing and regenerating and that the surgery in February did 'it's thing'. . . .

...lots going on...
Ryan officially has his driving permit (segment1) so I'm now the passenger and he's the driver!
Football skills camp was last week - other than strict instructions -no jumping, running or twisting- he enjoyed the two days. First day was rain, rain, rain - so they were inside for the first half and then outside for the balance. Friday was sunny and perfect weather for drills.
Week three for me - have some job opportunities unfolding.
Captain Kangaroo! -It's wild kingdom around here- momma and poppa robin decided to nest under the deck and now have 3 babies; the momma doe and her fawn come through the yard every day around 2'ish; I knocked down a softball size bald-faced hornet nest under the deck a week ago; and the chipmunks (more than 6(or 600) I'm certain) are enjoying chasing me from the front garden to the back garden. And they continue to work on destroying the retaining wall by burrowing all over and under - I've lost a number of plants due to disturbed roots. I can't understand why any of them want to be at the house when the wetlands are at their beck and call and about 40 yards away ??
Kisses and sunshine to the family...will summer weather actually stick around for more than a day at a time ?

Ran the 5K in this race for the second year in a row. Improved my time over last year !
What am I doing this week.... I'm in search of a new job ... and keeping busy with all the duties as treasurer of our football booster club ... and getting caught up on gardening and yard work!
Ryan continues to have positive physical therapy sessions for his knee. He's well on the way to starting a great football season - spending time weight building and strength training. And he's almost done with his driver training - that green permit is on the horizon.
Pete's on sabbatical - spending time in the TC area fly fishing for the "golden bones" on the shorelines. Unfortunately, since Friday the weather has been a bit chilly so the fish have been in deeper waters, reluctant to move inward to the flats for his fishing pleasure!

Not the best pic - but here it is - Sherry and Debi - 2 sisters, missing our sister Kim who is in Pennsylvania.
The wrapped box is paper that was handmade by my dear niece, Sasha. Inside the box a few new Cherie Dorie beads....
Pretty pansy potted in one of Debi's cast-off cup and saucers..added it to my foyer Easter fluffing... have some other great gifts that came from Kim - blue glass birds (handblown) to photo and add to my blog later this week...plus some ceramic eggs. Once I take down the Easter Fluffing, I'll get back to Spring Fluffing.
