**i have a sweet friend**

who isn't quite up to snuff. i am so sorry that she is having a little 'spin' of the sickies. take care mama'.












i started school yesterday. i think it went really well. both classes are pretty much a 'work at your own risk'. ha! jk. i was given a syllabus, had purchased a book, told what items needed to be handed in, and when the last day of class was. i have a little bit of a hard time staying on task in situations like these so that is why i opted to get my medical transcription certificate at the college and not in my previous home-study course. if i am thrown in front of the computer and told "go!" i do a lot better. so yesterday the guy yelled "go!" and off i went. i will say this: when did we go from this--















to this--??

















boy do i need to get out more. it's quite the handy dandy little thing. learn something new everyday....

i returned home from danea's in one piece. i am too old for the baby stage. her two boys are the best...just loud. ha! i don't remember the middle-of-the-night feedings or the diapers. which btw i avoided the entire whole trip. i got skills baby. asa has got to be one of the most clever children i have ever met. he seems to really think things through and comes up with the best options. he's going to be a lot of fun to watch grow up. i feel really blessed to know asa and odin and be their auntie. i am really anxious to see odin's personality when he gets a little bigger and the interaction between the 2 boys. i experienced the sibling relationship through my own 2 kids, a boy and a girl, so theirs will be a lot different i am sure.













it was great to catch up with danea. i miss having a best friend around. i wish i didn't have to get on a plane to have that. hopefully once odin is a little bit older she can come visit me like she used to. until then we will have to adore each other from afar.













one afternoon on my trip we headed out to anthropologie so danea and i could pick up a couple things i have been coveting on their website. what a store. i think salem should get one....cuz' you know albany never will. danea purchased my birthday present while we were there. i have been wanting these measuring cups for ages.
















i also have wanted these measuring spoons so i got them for myself.















anthropologie is located among other great shops all housed in this amazing outdoorish shopping center.























































we did a little outdoor shopping for sunglasses. i now have a pair of sunglasses that aren't scratched beyond belief. danea was her silly-as-usual self, odin slept and asa was in love with the water fountain. it was a great afternoon.






































































i hope all of you are having a great summer so far.

peace.

Why WOULDN'T Albany ever get one???

(asked innocently while trying not to laugh)

I just realized I owe you some sidebar titles. Can you check to see what kind of files you can upload? I forget.

Glad you had a good time. The kids are adorable. Love the birthday gift too. It has been an adjustment for me having an infant around but so fun being a grandma. Good to see you the other day. I am hoping that Kate gets better real soon. Penny delt with vertigo for sometime. Anyways hope to see you soon. hugs Pam
