Happy Memorial Day

The rain has finally gone away! Teddy enjoys a relaxing morning in the sunshine. He had a perfect weekend at agility - qualifying on all four runs and earning double Q's #10 and #11.

Photo of the Day - 5/27/2011

Today doesn't really feel like it is the start of Memorial Day weekend!

Took this picture on Wednesday before the storm passed through the area.  A lot of flowers are starting to bloom in the yard.

Visit I Heart Faces by clicking here.

While this is a non-competitive week, I still wanted to share a picture ... here's hoping this will help spring return for a little while longer!

This week, I started using Pinterest.  I didn't think it was something I would be interested in, but it's been a lot of fun.  There's also a Pinterest app - but it still needs some refining (at least they provided an update to keep it from crashing!)

What is Pinterest?  Remember cutting out all kinds of interesting things from magazines - recipes, decorating ideas, fashion and trying to keep track of all of that "inspiration" - perhaps by pinning it to a bulletin board?  Or ... how about bookmarking all of the blogs and other websites where you've found such cool ideas - only to forget why you bookmarked them or where to find them when needed?  That's where Pinterest comes in.  When you're on a site, you can "pin" a photo of what you like and store it on your "board".

You can create as many boards as you like, share them with others, and follow other people's boards. You can also "re-pin" items you like onto your boards.  Clicking on the photos themselves takes you to the original source of the photo.  My Pinterest site is located on the sidebar of this blog.

Pinterest requires an "invitation" from an existing member to sign up (loading the app can put you on a "waiting list").

Happy Pinning!

PS - I will share the rest of my trip and my completed Scrapbook on the Road soon!  It was a great vacation.

Happy Mothers Day!

The trees are in bloom in the front yard. Glad I didn't miss them when I was out of town last week.

We went to the Kiwanis club's annual plant sale and got some plants for the front yard.

For the backyard, we got a new raised flower bed. Just need to get some veggie plants.

Hopefully, the weather this week will cooperate.
