Peach State says: Isn’t That Grand!?

What an incredible view I was able to share with my hubby and youngest!  It was our first time at the Grand Canyon and I have to admit I was in awe!  Pictures don’t do it justice!  “Isn’t That Grand!?”  Every nook and cranny was a revolving door of shadow and light.  The flow of the clouds danced along the peaks and layers providing photographers multiple chances to catch the perfect shot.  “If I may state for the record…There is no way a person can take a bad picture of the Grand Canyon.

It is important to share with you that you may need to have a designated non-photographer in your group.  This way you can move around and not worry about running into others taking the same picture.  Small groups of visitors moved around in the same familiar state…Phones and tripods with multiple lenses all focused on the amazing sight.  Selfies and groups with an ever changing backdrop scattered along the rocky and uneven edge of the South Rim.  There were a few photo enthusiasts who dared to attempt the best phot on the edge. I spoke with them…the title of their picture was “Giving Birth to the World!”  I won’t tell you what the pose was…you have already let your mind run with the thought.  “You should probably stop before you embarrass me as well as yourself.”

The weather on this beautiful day was chilly-windy-glad-I-had-my-thermal-shirt-and-sweatshirt day.  The wind was sustained winds between 25-30 mph with temperatures in the lower to mid 50’s.  “BURR!!!”
I had seen documentaries about the Grand Canyon and knew about the clouds flowing over the edge.  I have a few others with the varied depth of flow.  But, I knew there was a chance of wintry mix and with the cloudy overcast skies moving in we decided to leave this overwhelming and heart fluttering place.  I am, as you know, a weather watcher and a prepared mama…just wait!

As we were strolling along the path, toward the car, a wonder sentiment burst in my direction …”War Eagle!” I smiled and replied “War Eagle” and kept moving.  My hubby asked how he knew I was an Auburn fan…I just laughed and said “Honey I do have my Auburn strap on my glasses and a perfect shade of orange sweatshirt.  We recognize each other!”  He simply shook his head.  Auburn fans are everywhere!

As we said goodbye to the Grand Canyon and drove out of the park, with the heat on, we were privileged to see a group of elk.Sorry for the blur…hubby was driving a bit over the speed limit.  

I have more to share but don’t want to overload you with my unedited pictures.  I will do my best to give you a beautiful insight into our vacation!  Till then…

Coffee is my _______! Fill it in!

Peach State says: Crafty Girl’s Night Out!

20140310-080632.jpg

The Pintrest call went out to the ladies by email.

“Look what we found! Why don’t we get together and do this and have a Crafty Girl’s Night Out!

So we were reminded and were encouraged to buy the supplies and RSVP!
Stencils and paint provided! I bought a glue gun along with the Burlap and headed over to the host house. Newspaper lined tables were set up in two rooms along with bowls of brown paint and sponge brushes. Yarn was in individual little balls ready to made into Pom-poms.

Here is the result!!!

20140301-071130.jpg

It has been a week of non-stop-chaotic-running-with-a-dash-of-beat-the-clock type of activity. Something everyday! I was so focused on the things that had to be done I forgot what day it was until my youngest got home yesterday! But that’s another story…After My Week I Deserve Some Facebook Funnies!

How about a couple of Straight-Jacket Award contenders:
