What’s UP with the cats adopting Kelly’s new (used) balance beam as their nap area!!??

Speaking of The Gymnast, last month she landed her back walkover / back handspring combo on the high beam!!

Here she was at age 3…


She enjoyed gymnastics from age 3 to 5, tried other stuff, then returned 4 years ago at age 7 (at Austin’s best gym, make that Texas’ and possibly the Nation’s best gym) — with the last 18 months on competitive team.

She still LOVES it!!

And last week, one I took with her “Fast Camera” iPhone ap and she captioned.


Her balance beam straddles one of our house additions Jim built with his own 2 hands years before she was born.

Yep, he did all the woodwork too, as i sat drinking wine and singing him songs. :)

Here’s another view of said room, taken yesterday morning…


My new eBay china shop / office corner I set up this weekend!!!

Yay, with a grown-up size chair and desk, whooohooooo. :)

Here’s a “before”…


Ahhhhh, much better now!! ….


My new desk is actually just a table, with Kelly’s old toy shelves arranged on top…


I assembled those shelves all by my l’il ‘ol self when she was a toddler!


Another shot I took this morning with my new office peeking around the corner…


A little messy in eBay Command Central transition mode, but I like it — and stay tuned!

Off now to take pix for 10 auctions and get those up.

And how is YOUR life??

    Hope all is well with you and that your summer is going blockbuster:~)

    I occasionally stop by and stroll through the sleeping cats. They make me smile. I love the one with the box on top:~)LOL

    I read the comment about the Tarot reading. When I went to my first Tarot reading, I pulled the “Death” card. Of course, it freaked me out until I learned more about it. I now use the on-line OSHO cards. I love the messages they have.

    Well, enjoy your summer.

    Okay, so dear Sara, your comment inspired me to just now post a 20-photo essay of some of our summer thus far. And was inspired to shout you out over that man and woman in the Monet.

    OSHO cards, you know I’ll be Googling that!!

    Maybe the Death card can mean death to things we let go, ushering in that incredible lightness of being?

    See you soon!

    Of course I wasn’t on the right post. Everything on the ipad is miniaturized and I’m all thumbs.

    That’s hilarious Alice! I wonder how many comments I’ve left on you friends’ “wrong” posts too. Probably more than I could ever realize. :) It happens. And keeps life fun.

    I found a plug in for wordpress that allows me to move the comments from one post to another. Clears up those occasional mess ups when people click the wrong one.
