Beyond Deweyville

Breeding, feeding, writing, reading, crafting, and photographing in Orange County, CA Where it has become a novelty to raise your own kids and mow your own grass (if you can afford some).

The secret’s out…and it’s not about me, although I plan on being highly involved! August 25, 2010

You should feel like you know her, so….

Tonight I was over at Noelle’s

She updated her blog

I took a photo of her updating her blog

You should totally check it out

Then we took pictures of ourselves because we were so happy about this

You can turn your web cam into a photo booth too, for free, by going here

Love and Joy,

Shal

If you see me on Facebook you can skip this entry and just move on to checking your next favorite blog

I’m on a much needed Facebook fast

I’ve packed it up and brought it all back here

Summer’s been good to me

Grab the laptop

Let’s head to the porch

I celebrated 10 years of being married to my high school sweetheart

We returned to the site of our reception for the first time since our wedding day

It was just as beautiful to us

I’ve found the best coffee in the O.C.

Enjoyed a little color inspiration

Fixed things my kids have tweaked

Laughed at Wyatt’s desires

Entertained silent dinner guests

Have eaten out way too much

Drooled over all the genius crafters in LA

I’ve learned that even ugly

tastes yummy

I’ve prayed for certain items to be put on clearance

I’ve cut things

and delivered them to people I love

I’ve enjoyed the blessing of a sweet backyard

I’ve failed at inspiring a smile

I’ve knitted some

funky cats for the girls

I’ve watched things other than children grow

I’ve squeezed the juice out of things

I’ve started what I call “The Million Pins” quilt

I received some groovy duct tape glasses

I’ve found happiness in a pancake

I made some noodle soup for some needy people

I’ve gone to flea markets when I should have been at church

I found this because I refuse to do it one more time

The kids and I made a bird feeder that the birds did not like

I’ve picked blueberries with Amaiah

I’ve enjoyed every minute I’ve been able to spend with Noelle

I watched Bootsy trip out on her first carousel ride

I watched a first dance recital

I figured out that making her watch me hose down the driveway is so boring she’ll fall asleep

I’ve been to the beach

I’ve thought some

and held tight to my favorite things

all the love in the universe,

Shal
