Happy Fathers Day!

Ok first have to say this is an older picture we did not go go karting today but thats one thing DH and DS love to do. Of course, I like too also, but I would like to snap shots too of them racing! Well I can not believe it, I forgot to take my camera up north this weekend when visiting my parents. My mom bought my dad a swim raft for the lake. How totally cool is that? I mean not saying my parents are old by any means but how many 60 or close to 60 year olds buy swimming rafts? LOL My dad is a water bug always has been always will be. Thats one thing I share with him and have passed on to my DS as well.
Here is a picture of my dad aka "Papa" and Michael in the pool at Starfish Resorts in Jamaica. We generally were swimming in the ocean but this day we we hiding in shade, getting away from the sandy breeze. Ok, just have to say we helped get my parents swim raft in the lake, then we came home early in the morning and then had to proceed to put in the Water Trampoline in the pond so the weather was on our side.Here is DS last year when he took puppy Bella out on it.

Forgot to mention we went out to dinner ate like kings and queens. Then went out for a few drinks, played darts, danced and played music from the juke box.Just were enjoying our time together as a family! Ok so I hoped you all had a great Fathers Day weekend we sure did.

Procrastination

Procrastination one of my downfalls but which I am working on! I have been thinking sometime of this one project I wanted to make. Can't really say what it is because it is a gift for someone close to me, that may read this before they receive it and NO way do I want to spoil the surprise. Well this project is now complete and I feel SO much better. So why do we procrastinate? I think sometimes its a big project and might be overwhelming. It could be perhaps that we are truly perfectionists and have to have all the right information or supplies for the project we need to accomplish??? I have slowly tried to improve on this. One way I am doing this is when my brain thinks oh I will do that later.....I quickly jump on doing it now. For example; I was looking at my flower bed and it needed weeding so bad. DH loves to garden and in fact planted all my flowers in there that we received from family and friends!So naturally I just assume he will weed it.Well I thought I wanted this flower bed and I actually am planning on another one closer to our road. So why am I not helping to make this look gorgeous! So even though we had storms predicted any time there was a moment of sun I was out there pulling weeds like crazy. I also went as far as raking up all my mess too. Then I proceeded to pull weeds in the beach area and use the electric weed whacker too! I have to say it was pretty easy due to the rain loosing it up too! So little by little I am improving to get things done and it truly feels much better at the end of the day!

Its Time

Its time I finally post on this blog I made oh so long ago. I have sat here so many times thinking what do I write about. What will sound interesting to people visiting my blog. These thoughts have kept me from writing, because I get nervous. However, I realized I love to chat and I love to let people know whats going on with my family and myself. So with that said here I go and well its about time!
You should first know I am Amy and I have a wonderful husband of 11 years and a son Michael who is 10. We live in the country and well I truly love it! No we don't have pizza delivery out here but then again my body doesn't need the extra calories that might bring LOL. We are a pet loving family we have what my dear brother would say as a small ark. 2 dogs, 2 cats , 2 fish and 1 guinea pig. Coco is our oldest dog he is an Australian Shepard mix and loves to hang out in our swimming pond and herd fish. Bella our little princess girl is a Beagle, Basset hound, and black lab. I know what a combo huh :) You will generally see her trying to follow in Coco footsteps, which is annoying to him but yet he watches over his little sis!Then their is Peanut Butter.....PB for short. He is a Tabby and typical independent cat. Loves to roam and party but comes home to eat and crash for a bit. Sounds like a teenager huh? Then their is our baby boy Shadow he is a Himalayan and Oh so soft. He melts everybody's heart even to non cat lovers. Yes, I do prefer dogs but when hubby brought him home I was in love! Yes, you heard me right, my tough macho man is the biggest animal lover and could not say no to this little one. Shadow truly picked out daddy.... came walking right up to him and he just scooped him up and never put him down till he got home. Ok everyone say aweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. Ok then we have two beta fish Diamond and Pearl. We went to our friends wedding and well for center pieces were vases and the fish. Our sons godmother told us if we wanted to take one home we could. Well of course, the look on our sons face, was priceless and thats the end of that story.....then last but not least is Lilly Lou our sons guinea pig who knows my hubby's voice....and she will start squeaking at him, cause she knows he will break down and give her goodies aka lettuce!
Ok now that you know all that lives amongst me here in the country. Now you should know that I love to scrapbook....well currently love to collect supplies more then anything. That will soon change for I need to get serious for I told hubby I am going to try to make a business out of this. Which of course is named Paperkeepsakes:) I am currently selling on Ebay, Etsy and Ewaey all under the same name. I truly want to start creating a lot to build up my premade stock, to sell at a craft show that is held at the local HS before Christmas. A little nervous about that but I hope to get over that fear and go for it. Ok I think I may have said enough for the first day. Thanks for stopping in Bye !
