iPhone pictures

A few weeks ago (o.k., I started this post a few weeks ago. . .now it's more like a month or so ago) my sister gifted me with her iPhone.  Previously I had used a "regular" phone from Wal-Mart, insisting that it was OK.  Every once in a blue moon I would say "if I had a smartphone. . ." but in reality it was really o.k.  I had a Kindle Fire.  And a camera I carried around all the time anyway.  But this phone?!?

Magic I say.  Magic.  I love it :)

Looks like Miss Margaret broke in the cameraphone for me. . .I didn't even realize this was on there until I saw it downloaded on my computer :)

Marie helping me paint our dining room chairs!  She was instrumental in helping me choose the colors too -- she rocks.

I'm assuming this is a selfie because I can't imagine I took it. . .and I can't figure out where we are either. . .??

This was my picture of the day for June 22, taken at 12:14 p.m. (love the details the phone stores for me!!)

AR training one night. . .I like the ability I have to instantly post to FB :)

We didn't make many of these sessions this summer and the kids really missed it.

One day when I was on campus I went up to my classroom and sent a picture of my newly repaired floor to my husband -- maintenance did a great job fixing it.  Then an hour later I found out that this would NOT be my classroom this school year :(

I can also take video and immediately show Margaret what she is good at and/or what she needs to improve on (not that I would know -- she's good at critiquing herself though).

I like taking pictures of my kids with their friends and sending the picture to their parent when they can't be there to enjoy the fun :)

 One day I came across these pictures in a storage container upstairs.  Obviously the "cousins" picture has some damage so I took a pic and sent it to my sister, thinking she might have a copy somewhere.  She didn't :(

My completed dining room chairs :)  LOVE them!

Obviously Marie didn't want me taking her picture. . .even though I had just bought her a treat. . .

I love where I live. . .
Another picture of the day (July 2nd)

Posting a picture on FB of things I was removing from my bookshelf. . .did have one person want one cookbook. . .off to GW with the rest!  Don't worry, I still have an entire shelf full of cookbooks. . .

Another advantage of the iPhone. . .writing a note to the maintenance staff and then documenting the date and time that I posted it (so it can't get "lost") and e-mailing it to myself for reference -- ha!

Shopping is great because I can take pictures of different items to send to Tom for his opinion, or just to keep and refer back to. . .

Another picture-of-the-day and snapshot of LIFE. . .taken July 14th at 9:15 p.m.

My freshly-painted, in-progress "cousins" wall. . .that top left picture is still driving me nuts -- I need to re-position it -- and I eventually want to paint the word that size, hence the paper taped to the wall.

Capturing a full rainbow on the soccer field and my new favorite picture of Marie. . .

Oh!  One of me. . .ha!

And last but not least. . .at least in this phone dump folder. . .HAPPY BIRTHDAY SMILES!!!

Sunday Dinner

This is the easy crockpot pork tenderloin dinner that I mentioned the other day. Obviously I'm not making it again today, but it IS a great Sunday dinner -- definitely good enough for company too. Here is your cast of characters:
Pork tenderloin, 1 can of each: Cream of Mushroom, Golden Mushroom, and French Onion. I am not a fan of processed foods, but this is an exception. I also don't really like mushrooms but they are easy to pick out of this dish if you like (I give all of mine to Margaret). That's it, that's all you need! Oh, and a crockpot and 8-10 hours :)

Here is what a pork tenderloin looks like if you've never bought one.
When you open it up you get this:Lots of people will further trim that fat. . .I don't because it will cook off. I do rinse and pat it dry at this point. Also, when my mother makes this she salt and peppers the meat -- I do not. My kids HATE pepper and I generally don't add salt to my cooking.

Add all three soups to the cro…

Love well

I needed some pictures late last week and realized that I don't spend enough time documenting the moments in life -- to me, if the picture is important enough to take, it's something I want to journal about.  It used to be that I was so busy documenting that I was forgetting to live in the moment. . .I think I have a much better balance now.  But then, this week, I was reminded of why pictures have always been important to me -- because LIFE is important and it's fleeting.
My aunt lost her son (in the sunglasses) this week.  It was unexpected.  He was 41.  He was one of my twin cousins.  Born on my sister's 2nd birthday.  I say "my aunt's son" because I can't imagine losing a child.  I'm sure no one can.  He was also a dad -- of that great kid all the way to the left in the front row.  J is 9.  So a boy is now without his father, and a mother and father without their  son.  His girlfriend lost her partner and many people lost a friend.  His sister…

Margaret's first 8th birthday party

Margaret had her 8th birthday party TWO WEEKS AGO!!! Ugh. It was on a Friday. The following Monday was the last day of school, then we left immediately for our trip "home" (300 miles away) and spent a week there. She had another party there, with family, ON her actual birthday. We traveled home Sunday, went to visit friends at Lake Cumberland in KY on Monday, "caught up" at home Tuesday, than visited Splash Country in Eastern TN with friends yesterday. Whew! Busy start to the summer :)This was the group of friends that were able to attend the party:Marie (her sister), AC, SM, EC, and the birthday girl herself :)She had three other people that were invited (she was 8, so I planned for a party of 8) but they didn't come.

We decided on a "crafting" party this year. My good friend and neighbor, Rene, works with Stampin' Up! and put together a great party at her house in her stamping room. The girls all made photo albums and charm bracelets. It…
