A Weekend in Turtle-ville

Greetings, friends.
We are hobbling along with a gimpy computer, and as I type I fully expect to be bounced out of Blogger, but I'll type fast and see if I can beat this thing!

Saturday morning Doug and I packed a picnic lunch {ok, I packed the lunch, Doug got the car ready} and took a drive to Canyon Lake.

It was quite the little adventure. We drove up past the lake looking for a picnic spot with less people, found nothing, turned around to go back down to the lake marina, saw the sign that said we needed a day-pass, turned around and drove back up to the place we'd already been to buy a pass, then drove back to the marina to find that the day-lot was full. Sheesh! We ended up finding a place along the side of the road and ate lunch with lots of cars driving by. We were good sports about the whole thing though, and had a few laughs in spite of the little frustrations.


I'm loving Project Life, and I took some time this weekend to work on a few pages. Once in a while I'll throw in a little layout {as opposed to slipping photos in slots}.

We met Doug's brother and my SIL for breakfast yesterday morning...

Here's us at breakfast...
Aw, I love this guy so much!
All in all, a very nice weekend.

This will be a busy week for me. I have lots going on at work, plus a whole bunch of personal stuff happening. Fun thing: I'm going to see Jason Mraz with Carrie tomorrow night{!!!} And then I'm getting ready for another trip to California on Friday to see my mom. My mom was admitted to the hospital yesterday afternoon and is really suffering ~ Team Teal support greatly appreciated!!! xo

Glad you're going to be with your mom. I'm sooo sorry that she's suffering and pray for her comfort. As hard as it is to see her in pain, you will not regret the time sitting by her bedside.
Love & hugs,
Rinda
