Happy Birthday DD#1

The other day Kevin declared it Nerd Day and dressed nicely with suspenders.
Today is a regular day and here he is, I think it is clash day.

Our Darling Daughter Nicole turned 14. We are so blessed to have such a wonderful, beautiful, thoughtful, and kind 14 year old girl.

I spent my day off learning how to bend wire. Not too bad I think.

Granola Models

Okay, not really modeling granola but, this morning I made homemade granola. Oatmeal, pecans, coconut, butter, and honey baked in oven 300 for 30 minutes. I added chocolate chips and dried cranberries when it cooled. Kevin wanted to know it you eat it like cereal with milk or if you have to eat it dry.

I started stringing beads into jewelry. 
 Here is Alea modeling a creation I styled for Lindsay, a lovely young lady that works in my office.

 Kevin took it upon himself to declare it Nerd day at his school. This is what he came up with. He was bouncing around this morning powered by granola anticipating his friends participation. I thin one of his friends came to school dressed like a Hippie.

Do you ever get a taste for something just out of the blue? I was treating a patient yesterday and I got a strong taste for macaroon cookies. It may have stemmed back to Chiropractic School. I was a macaroon junkie. Every day I would buy one or two in the student store and eat them in class. I just must have been reminded of something that triggerd that memory!

I went to the trusty web and got a recipe from this web site. The cookies were so good. I adapted them for a gluten free diet and WOW they were great. I did share with Kevin. He is the only one in the family (besides me) that likes coconut. Try them they are yummy and easy.

First Day of School (in August)


This summer has been filled with fun and excitement for our family. We started in June with a family reunion in our neck of the woods. Twain Harte Ca. We stayed 3 nights at the Lazy Z Resort about 15 minutes drive from our house. I could go home every day and water the garden.

Kevin and Alea did a triathlon this summer. Had a blast.

I finished Roll Roll Cotton Boll and put it in our guild's quilt show. It looked stunning hanging there among all those incredible quilts.

Me and the Love of my life.

Prom Night

Eric went to the prom last weekend. His date Sydney is on his right and her sister Ashley is on the left. He is a Sophomore and they are Seniors. It was Thursday morning and he called from the other room, "Mom, do you care if I go to the prom on Saturday?" "Hu?" was my immediate reaction. "With who???" As it turns out these beautiful, smart, involved young women wanted to go to their prom so they asked Eric and his other Sophomore friend to be their dates. He said they had a great time and even got dinner out of the deal.

Our new favorite place in town is here! I have been telling Jeff for years we needed a serve yourself yogurt place in town. One that has original Tart flavored yogurt. Here it is!! We are frequent visitors 
here. I think we paid the rent for the first month.
It was Mother Lode Roundup this weekend. The county celebrated with a Parade and a Rodeo. Kevin got to ride in a Camero 
sponsored by Sierra Motors. He is riding with my friend Tammy, her husband and son.

Eric and his Dad.

This made me laugh.

Life at the Lund's

We had a lovely Easter at our house. My daughetr and her cousin were joined at the hip.
The rest of the kids played video games.

Little House on the Prairie Days . I did get the chance to exercise my sewing skills making a bonnet, skirt and apron. 
 We have been enjoying the weather and all the yard work that comes with trees falling down.

 Softball and baseball have started. 3 nights a week we are out for games.
 Kevin, Alea and I ran in the Old Mill Run. They ran in the 2 mile race. Kevin took 5th place and Alea 16th. I stepped out and pushed the envelope and ran the 10K race. I felt really good about the race I did not even stop to hyperventilate.
Sonora Art Trails was last weekend. That is where 20 local artists open up their studios to the public. This is Patricia Cherry. She has a wonderful variety of talents. There is watercolor and oil and landscapes, portraits and abstracts, very talented.

This is Irene Taylor, she is a friend of mine. Her work is absolutely stunning. I offered her space in the reception area at my office. She is going to bring work down and hang it in my office. I am so excited!
This is Leslie Carabas, she also is a friend of mine. She belongs to my Guild and is a fiber artist. Yep, that work behind her on the wall are quilts. She is preparing for a one person show at a New York gallery. She had definitely inspired me to branch out and try more art quilting.

Nicole came along to cheer on her brother, she was mostly bored, It was an all day thing.

Grandma came along too. She was very proud of her grandson.

Then we had ice cream. Yummm what a great day!
