Sundays with Fritz...

Have a thumbs up kinda week!!!

Friday, August 27, 2010


There is something so special about holding on to a little boys hand on a cool evening, and going for a nice long walk. Enjoying the last bits of Summer in an amazing Sunset. Then watching that boy run with delight to chase grasshoppers and stop every few feet to find rocks. Nothing can ever compare to those precious minutes with a calm evening, and one amazing little man.

'Tis The Season...

...For once again to wake up and find deer enjoying our yard. But, how cute are these two little babies with their little spots still showing?

Sundays with Fritz-The Case of the Lake

Last Sunday, and today as well, we drove over to a nearby lake to check it out as we haven't been there yet since we moved to our new town. I've been to one other lake before, but man this one was much prettier! AND.... it had a beach!
We checked out a few different spots around the lake. Had lunch. Well, I didn't really as there were just too many things to see and do! But today was extra special because I got to go swimming too!
That's me and my Daddy in the above picture. He's in the yellow shirt, and that's me getting brave enough to go into the water up to my waist!

still crafty.... but not...

I needed a break from all things craft which came at a good time as a small problem with my 'craft' hand has led me pretty incapable to doing any fun crafting! Hopefully I will be able to get back to it soon, and plus... finally got a printer that will print my photos! Double plus... got my main computer fixed as well!

Like No Time Apart

Nothing can beat a few days with a great friend, and her wee one.
Spending time, hanging out, laughing and talking.
Of course adding the little bits of shopping in the mix.

Enjoying the sunshine with two wonderful kids running around.
Conversations that never end .

Monica and her pretty hair.

Mixing drinks and playing games. Realizing that even though the time apart
has been almost a year, it doesn't feel like a day has gone by.

More sun with squeals and giggles mixed in, by both tots and adults.
Lounging by the pool and wishing for just one more day for the laughing
and stories to continue.

Until next time...

A Week Filled With Rainbows

New Purse Love and a Special Birthday

I'm loving the new purse that I bought from World Market. It's from India (yeah, I pretty much love anything from there) and I'm calling it my cafe bag. Perfect for a date night movie, or meeting a friend for a little cuppa.
My wonderful, loving, Uncle Greg would have been 60 years old yesterday. He was such an amazing person with love for life even in his trials and tribulations. When his tour of duty was done in Vietnam, and gathering at the old swimming hole, a group of friends and him decided to play the 'last one in is a rotten egg!' game. Unfortunately for my Uncle the river was not as deep as it had been the last time leading to an accident that left him a quadriplegic for the rest of his life. But even with this, and surviving well past the years Doctors told him, he always had a smile on his face whenever we would visit. I have so many fond memories of spending the weekend or camping or riding on his lap in his wheelchair, and even though he has been gone for many years now, he is still there, in my heart.
Love you forever... Mick the Rat.

Sundays with Fritz-Let's Eat!!! Ok, Really Just Color

Last Monday, Mommy and I went on a little drive to pick up Grandpa, and knowing that it was lunch time and we all would be hungry we stopped off to have a bite. To my wonderful surprise, they had paper covering the entire table. This of course was perfect for my little hands to get some drawing going on!!! Here's my very pretty picture. Grandpa helped me write my name and he also helped me draw some cars and people! Mommy said the car looked like an animal of some sort
This was the place we ate at. It was pretty tasty. I had fish n'chips and man, oh man!!! The fries were soooooooo good!!!

Here was Grandpa helping me choose what color of crayon to use next.

Fritz... signing off.
P.S. Hmm... I think I just might want to become an artist!!!

Let's Get The Wax On

I'm not one to really give shout-outs to products, but this one... I just have to put it out there. I have known and used this lotion for most of my life. My Mother use to have jars of it around the house and would give it out for presents to friends and family, but sadly for me over the years I have forgotten about this awesome product.
In trying to get my poor little babe's eczema legs under control, we have gone through appointments at Dermatologist, and regular Doctor visits, and have tried multiple recommendations for keeping Fritz's poor legs looking nice and smooth. Prescription cortisone cream does help, but it's not something that can be used for continuously. I believe that we have tried around 5 different lotions and potions to help keep the eczema under control, but so far nothing works that great. Until now!
After thinking about other options to try, for some reason Wool Wax popped into my head. I knew it couldn't hurt, but where to find it?? It's not a product that is easily available at every store as it is a Made In Montana product. Thankfully it was found, and many jars were purchased. And the greatest news?? IT WORKS! If we put it on Fritz (pretty much all over his body) twice a day, his legs heal up nicely and he isn't bothered with all the itching and scratching!
So for any out there who need a lotion to contain those serious skin issues (i.e. dryness, cracked, eczema) feel free to go to and get some!
Please note that even though the name is Wool Wax, no animals are ever harmed in making this product. It actually comes from their wool, hence the name. I guess many years ago, some sheep farmers noticed how wonderful their hands always were during shearing season compared to the rest of the year and figured out it had something to do with the wool. Then they were smart enough to turn it into a lotion for the rest of us. Well, thank you to them!!!

Just another one...

I realized I hadn't done a Makes Me Smile List for this month. So here goes!
  • Grown-up furniture. I'm so smiling everyday when I look at my hutch with my (obsession?) of pretty glass.
  • Cuddling with my kitties.
  • A FREE trip that was booked for me today. Love you J, and thanks!!!
  • Knowing that the Fall season is just around the corner.

Let's Take the View

Our new city, in all its lackluster beauty, does have one thing going for it. Quite the open view from the top of the Rims. At night with the lights twinkling, it can be quite romantic and dreamy. But of course, my favorite is dusk just before day disappears to night. The transition of light to dark can happen so quickly, so it does wonders for a persons' soul to stop... and take a breath.

Let's Get the Music On!

We had a wonderful evening last Thursday when the Hubs came home a day early from work to check out the free concert. For any Idol fans (I'm not really one-sorry) Danny Jones who was on last season, graced us with his awesome voice. He is a local kid who will definitely make it very big!
The sun was warm, the music wonderful, and having family near to share the evening is everything that can make a night full of happiness.
Finding a beautiful flower garden that was not discovered the last time we went to the concert, also can make some happiness come alive.
And of course... a stop at the ducks pond. That makes Fritz smile with happiness.Can't wait for the next time...

Sundays with Fritz-The Case of the Movies!

Hi all! A few weeks ago Mommy, Daddy and I had a popcorn movie night! It was fun and although I didn't watch all of the movie (really, I only stay for the popcorn) it was nice to have a family fun night.
AND... last weekend I got to go to my second movie at the theatre! My Grammy had some free tickets so we headed for the show and some more yummy popcorn. Grammy and Mommy knew that I would not be able to sit still for the entire movie and they were right! I tricked them though, and lasted longer than they thought I would. Long enough to eat almost every popcorn bag in sight!
If you are wondering the first movie I went to I was only a couple weeks old, so really I don't remember it at all, but Mommy said to tell you all that I slept through the entire thing!
Fritz signing off....
