random stuff

Miss Sassy has discovered her girly-girl side.  She loves sparkly necklaces and asks to wear one each morning.  She even holds still for a pretty barrette.  And this kiddo has NEVER before held still for anything hair-related...
Oldest kiddo has popped...  I guess a week of vacation, extra rest and good food will do that :o)  I'd better be careful.  I had a week of vacation, too....

And the goofball section of a local band.  (A.K.A. the trombone section.)  I'm in the front.  Ummm... the short one in the front.  (Just in case you were wondering.)  I love these guys!  We laugh and joke all through band practice.  And hang around gabbing after practice until our conductor starts audibly jangling his keys.  Sometimes we keep talking in the parking lot.  Recently we started getting together to play outside of band.  Which quickly turned into dinner and playing.  Then theming the dinners.  Dinner, talking and laughter are starting to obliterate the playing time.  Um hmmm... typical trombone section.  I love it!

Oh!  And I LOVED Karen M's response to our collection of trombones in Vacation Shenanigans  She said to, "tell the husband to just be glad you aren't tuba players!"  Yeah... they run a little more expensive!  I can only imagine trying to get three tubas (and the respective players) into the car for a gig.  And if we had a bunch of tubas in the house, we might need to convert a few cases into tables or chairs or something...  For more band stories (and gardening and art and bunnies), check out rabbits eat quilts :o)

Well... that's the happy thoughts for today!  Have an awesome day!    


  1. Miss Sassy looks delighted to be dressed in sparkles!

    It sounds like your band group has a lot of fun! It took me a long time to realize that I needed to do things for me in order to be the best I can be in other areas. Amazing how that works out!

  2. Your girls are looking so beautiful!

    And thanks for the shout out. My trombonist/tubist is thinking that your group sounds like an awful lot of fun. A lot like her low brass section in the marching band.

    As for the tubas as household furnishings, Weasley has been known to hop into the case for a nap when it is open. I guess that would make it a bed....

  3. I noticed her with the bling. She looks so pretty!!

  4. Miss Sassy looks so pretty with her hair in a barrette.

    Oldest kiddo is looking big now. Look at that belly. Just a bit more and you will be holding that adorable little baby.


Love to hear from you! Thanks so much for posting :o)
