    Project Life Week 18, 2019

    journaling: So. Sick. My seasonal plague attacked the end of last week and I even took this Sunday off from church. No need to go and infect everyone else, and the choir was off so I didn’t feel guilty. Word spread that Peter Mayhew, who played Chewbacca in most of the Star Wars films, died this week. The tributes online were all very touching. Saturday was the official Star Wars Day, so of course everyone told everyone else. “May the Fourth Be With You!” Still sick 9 days later, so on Friday I finally went to see my doctor. They usually say ‘It’s a virus, it’ll be better in 10 days, just drink plenty of fluids!’ Well, it wasn’t getting better and we ended up cancelling our trip for next week. I’m disappointed, as I had all the reservations made, but I’m just too sick to enjoy it. But I got a sticker for being good! Also a hefty prescription for antibiotics. Yay. Up top is Ivy playing innocent. “Digging? No mom, I wasn’t digging. Not me!” Uh huh. Busted. Remember my comment about our roses taking over the front of our house? I wasn’t too far off. supplies: AFT_DreamyCanvas_Paper_Cream, AHA_360-2019-04_dates4_month-April, AHA_360-2019-04_dates4_year-2019, AHA_360-2019-04_paper06, AHA_360-2019-04_solid09, AHA_360-2019-04_emb_foliage1, MPE_Calendar_grids_02_Mon, MPE_SIM3_Calendar_Week3-a, MPE_ScrapItMonthly_DateMarkers-Brushes_841, SBA_SSStyles_PhotoBorders_6501_WhiteSm, SNU_SSSTYLES_ShadowMe6301-LaceWire, Font: Arial, Georgia, CVW_SupplyTracker

    journaling: Easter Sunday, our choir presented “Two Crowns” at the 10:30 service. Seth did a fabulous job preparing us and we sounded great! There were several kids involved this year, and they sang like pros. I took sunflowers for our flower cross this year, it’s always so pretty. Ivy was ready too, with her bunny ears. But she didn’t go to church, lol. Monday was Earth Day, and I’ve set out new flowers and a new feeder for our hummingbirds. Now we wait for them to show up. Ivy really is a hussy. She loves her belly scratches and has been known to fall asleep in this position. We ventured to the dog park again, and this snarly little beast thought he was in charge. Oh yeah? Ivy stole his ball and ran with it. So there! Since it was only the two of us this year, instead of a ham (which I really wanted, but didn’t want leftovers for weeks) Dave grilled ribs! It was so good, but when I wouldn’t share with Ivy the next day at lunch, I got some serious stink eye. When that didn’t work, she retreated to her crate and collapsed with a huge sigh. She cracks me up! My blackberries have survived another winter and have started to bloom! Ivy has a new trick when we walk: get three houses from home and lie down, then refuse to move. Fun times! supplies: AFT_DreamyCanvas_Paper_Cream, AHA_360-2019-04_dates4_month-April, AHA_360-2019-04_dates4_year-2019, AHA_360-2019-04_paper06, AHA_360-2019-04_solid09, AHA_360-2019-04_emb_flower2, AHA_360-2019-04_emb_foliage1, MPE_Calendar_grids_02_Mon, MPE_SIM3_Calendar_Week3-a, MPE_ScrapItMonthly_DateMarkers-Brushes_841, SBA_SSStyles_PhotoBorders_6501_WhiteSm, SNU_SSSTYLES_ShadowMe6301-LaceWire, Font: Arial, CVW_SupplyTracker

    journaling: On Palm Sunday, a few of us ventured into Nashville for a fantastic musical presentation. A combined choir, soloists, and orchestra performed “The Passion”. Afterward, we came back to Smyrna and had a great time of fellowship over dinner at Chili’s. Back: Me, Stephanie and Jaden Gray, Seth Skiles; Front: Donna Johnson, Pam Warner, Carey Garrison. Along with the rest of the world, we watched in horror as the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris burned. It could have been much worse as it turns out, but watching history go up in flames was just awful. Possibly planning a trip to Panama City Beach, Florida in a few weeks. Phoenix Rising is headlining a big event and it would be a great little early anniversary trip for us! I love getting out my maps and looking for hotels and things to do. Ivy - like every other Great Pyrenees this time of year- is shedding terribly. They call this “blowing their coat”. Brushing her has become a real adventure, as is sweeping up the dog hair in the house. It usually resembles a tumbleweed explosion. My roses are beginning to bloom and this was the first bud I discovered. They’re going to be spectacular! They have taken over the front planter because I didn’t cut them back last fall. I really need to do that this year, or it’s going to be like living in Sleeping Beauty’s castle. Neither rain, nor sleet .... silly dog loves being outside in the rain. supplies: AFT_DreamyCanvas_Paper_Cream, AHA_360-2019-04_dates4_month-April, AHA_360-2019-04_dates4_year-2019, AHA_360-2019-04_paper06, AHA_360-2019-04_solid09, EBA_PalmSunday_Emb_Palm-Ribbon, MPE_Calendar_grids_02_Mon, MPE_SIM3_Calendar_Week3-a, MPE_ScrapItMonthly_DateMarkers-Brushes_841, SBA_SSStyles_PhotoBorders_6501_WhiteSm, SNU_SSSTYLES_ShadowMe6301-LaceWire, Castle image (c) Walt Disney, Font: Arial, Georgia, CVW_SupplyTracker

    journaling: Ivy had a very happy birthday! On Sunday, she turned 2 years old. Her present (aside from the super cute hat I found at Dollar Tree) was a brand new bone. Yummy! I just love that she tolerates hats long enough for a few photos. We went to the dog park again on Wednesday, and she and George became fast friends. While we were there I tried out a different camera setting on my phone and got some beautiful photos of the flowering trees. Still working on Easter music, only two Sundays to go. Saturday was our 2nd annual fundraiser for our Thailand Methodist Mission. Setting up is always fun, and I found a book (that I don’t need) and a giant wine glass (that I bought anyway). Maybe I’ll plant something in it? I also found a sweet little crystal ball held by three dragons. I bought it for my desk because it reminded me of the days when we used to perform at Renaissance Festivals back in Florida. It’s not quite 4 inches tall. Page picked up the palms for tomorrow’s Palm Sunday services, they are in the fridge keeping green until morning. P.S. Ivy has a very large booper! supplies: AFT_DreamyCanvas_Paper_Cream, AHA_360-2019-04_dates4_month-April, AHA_360-2019-04_dates4_year-2019, AHA_360-2019-04_paper06, AHA_360-2019-04_solid09, DRB_Birthday-Party_02, DRB_Birthday-Party_Flair, DRB_Birthday-Party_Happy-Birthday, MPE_Calendar_grids_02_Mon, MPE_SIM3_Calendar_Week3-a, MPE_ScrapItMonthly_DateMarkers-Brushes_841, SBA_SSStyles_PhotoBorders_6501_WhiteSm, SNU_SSSTYLES_ShadowMe6301-LaceWire, Font: Arial, Georgia, CVW_SupplyTracker

    journaling: So far, we’re having a beautiful spring! These trees are everywhere, but I had no clue what they were. A neighbor finally told me they are Redbud trees. Even though they are stunningly purple! It seems there are several varieties, but these are the ones we have here in Middle Tennessee. I took Ivy to the local dog park for the first time and she had a blast! It’s huge, and there are two separate areas for big dogs and smaller dogs. She made lots of new friends, but she was so tired when we got home. As a good friend once told me, “a tired dog is a good dog!” It’s hard to believe that Easter is in just a few weeks. Our choir is hard at work on our big Easter musical and I’m very much enjoying no longer being in charge. I know I’ve said that before, but so far it’s true! Ivy cracks me up when she does things like this! She reminded me of Snoopy being the fierce jungle beast. She’s really not fooling anyone, she’s a softie at heart. Dave continues to do well on his therapy, and we’re slowly seeing some improvement. I’m working on mastering (or at least taming) Word Press so that I can edit the new church web site. A friend from church designed it, but I will be adding in the weekly updates. It’s a challenge, but we hope to unveil it at Easter. supplies: ABR_PuppyBreath_WA_DogPark, ABR_PuppyBreath_WA_PlayTime, AFT_DreamyCanvas_Paper_Cream, AHA_360-2019-04_dates4_month-April, AHA_360-2019-04_dates4_year-2019, AHA_360-2019-04_paper06, AHA_360-2019-04_solid09, GWH_FureverFriends_WA-Tag-Blank-Arrow-TanRed, MPE_Calendar_grids_02_Mon, MPE_SIM3_Calendar_Week3-a, MPE_ScrapItMonthly_DateMarkers-Brushes_841, SBA_SSStyles_PhotoBorders_6501_WhiteSm, SNU_SSSTYLES_ShadowMe6301-LaceWire, waw_adogslife_dog gone tired (purchased before Jennifer was a part of Scrap Girls!), Font: Arial, Georgia, CVW_SupplyTracker

    journaling: This was a nice, relaxing week. It has been in the low to mid 70’s and great weather to sit on the deck in the late afternoons. It was even nice enough for Dave to join us for a little while. His lupus keeps him out of the sun, so I enjoyed having company besides Ivy. She has worn a path around the side of the house, and I’ve been tossing her toys and bones in the largest hole she dug, The lawn guys appreciate it. I think. This was the first time she had ever made herself at home while we were cooking. It’s good to have a supervisor especially when Dad is cooking bacon! I’m loving the Pyr group on Facebook! They post gems like this meme and I have to laugh because it’s so true. Pyrs are lovable, but loud and don’t really care that you’re talking to them. I happened to glance out my office window upstairs and discovered that we have a new nest! Mama Dove has laid two eggs. It’s our first this year. supplies: AHA_360-2019-03_dates3, AHA_360-2019-03_solids03, AHA_360-2019-03_solids11, AHA_360-2019-03_solids12.jpg EBA_Shamrock_Emb_Clover, GWH_SummerGarden_Emb_Nest, MPE_Calendar, MPE_SIM3_Calendar, MPE_ScrapItMonthly_DateMarkers-Brushes, SBA_SSStyles_PhotoBorders_6501_WhiteSm, SNU_SSSTYLES_ShadowMe6301-LaceWire stinkytoes-sticker (made by me), Fonts: Arial, Christiany, CVW_SupplyTracker
