August is here... Seems summer is passing by so quickly
As if I fell straight down a rabbits hole
I have been away from home ever weekend it seems
Just as soon as I get settled back into the groove of being home
and finally get a handle on the laundry
we pack up for another adventure
I've taken you to Idaho many of times in my photographs
from down south to the pan handle
This trip was up North to visit Jimbob's mum and grandparents
I love Idaho!
I love the country and the people and the smells
& especially the seasons
This is the place were I met my handsome Jimbob
Just a month into my first semester of school
He had a crush on me in a class of over 300 people
I was the girl wearing red lipstick and gentleman hats
I was so lost during this period in my youth
perhaps in many ways I still am
but I now enjoy the feeling of the unknown
There are things I want, Places I would like to be
but I am more at peace now knowing that life
brings about wonderfully unexpected adventures
if we are not too busy trying to create ones of our own
Well back to the trip...
The best part of visiting Jim's family
is the shopping!
Ok, so really that's not completely true...
Visiting with his family is the real treat
but the shopping is splendid good fun
Growing up, my mother had no desire to shop for silly things
and especially through another mans junk
I always had this little bird on my should chirping at me
to shop shop shop
especially second hand!!!
So when I met my mother in law
i fell in love
how could I not
she makes cookies, cakes, and pies every-time we visit
just as soon as I finish one meal she asks what I would like for the next
she is a creative genius
and she LOVES to thrift shop!
MATCH MADE IN HEAVEN!!!
We had a grand ol' time
I brought a bag full of new toys home with me
but unfortunately you can't have everything you fall in love with
but sometimes a picture mends your heart
Well I really must go
The trailer has yet to be unpacked
and the laundry is flooding into the kitchen
