About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Nancy Today, Face Painting and Try a New Hair Style!



Meet my new friend, Nancy.  She's charming in a real, quirky kind of way.  She always wears a hat (that's why she states "so you know where you are") and she has her shirt inside out in this video.  Love. It!  I stumbled upon her when we were studying molasses.  Go with her to the pond to see tadpoles, visit the dump with her (more like a Goodwill), watch the sunrise and listen to her sing "How Great Thou Art".  She will lift your spirits and make you smile.:)


 Library end of summer celebration.  So proud of my sweet volunteer.  She was the last one to leave out of 50 children.  She offered to stay and sweep up the popcorn.:)

Here she is painting faces.  Love the look on the little boy's face above.  Sweet smile!  The little boy below wanted an American flag, then he wanted a mustache and then a pizza!  He didn't want to leave! (And she was afraid she wasn't doing a good job??)


I'm branching out and exploring new hair styles for my ballerina.  It's all about sectioning, bobby pins and a spray bottle.  I've had some help here.  The lady is amazing.  Patient, clear instructions.  I believe this is the beginning of a lovely friendship.

Love the braids!
Your daughter looks like she enjoyed the face painting as much as the kids. That was very sweet for her to volunteer.
Hope you have a great Friday. Blessings, Karen

Hi Lori, Your library looks such a fun place and I enjoyed seeing Mandy helping out there with the kids. She has a real gift of helping others. Katie's hair looks really pretty. Have you heard of 'the waterfall french plait'? If not search for it on youtube. I tried it on Jessica and it looked cute. I have just spent the last 20 minutes visiting with Nancy Today! She is a real character. I went to the junk shop with her and watched her swimming in the pond. She has such a lovely, gentle, sweet voice just like you :) I am wondering how she managed to get her shirt on inside out. It must have been difficult to button up or maybe she put it over her head! That would really bother me but I get the feeling it wouldn't bother Nancy at all she would probably find it funny.

Lindsay- Is the waterfall french plait how you styled Jessica's hair for prom? If so, it is absolutely gorgeous! Not sure I'm at that advanced level yet, but I can try!;) I think Nancy is so interesting! She intrigues me in an every day super star way. We are all super stars in our own way, you know? I used to imagine having a movie made of my life (while I was living it) when I was young. That was way before reality tv ever made an appearance! lol We all have special skills and insights and Nancy makes me smile.:) So do you!:) Lori

Fran. said...

mysteryhistorymom said...

Fran- I am on my way right now! Kaitlin has a boyfriend?? Young love.:) Thanks for keeping me posted, dear friend! He's not a Duggar... is he??:) Lori

Sheri said...

mysteryhistorymom said...

Sheri- I want to come back to Florida so badly! We are planning a trip to Colorado right now, though. Hopefully when it gets cooler we will head South.:) Lori

amy @ Life in Pink Hi-Tops said...

What fun! Yeah for Mandy! Yeah for you and Katie. Anna has very definite ideas about her hair. Sometimes we just don't agree.

mysteryhistorymom said...

Amy- I completely understand. I've been lucky so far with hairstyles for Katie but I know that could change any day now! I'll enjoy this time while I can.:) Lori
