Sharing My Fun With You

Hello, Dear Ones! I have missed you so much but I just had to share with you the fun we had with our little family. There were lots of kisses, hugs, special little surprises every morning, smiles, eating, running, jumping, wigglin', playing, more kisses and more hugs and more wigglin'! Just a perfectly blessed time with our little grandchildren!

 My heart was just swollen and spilling over with love for little Camp and Carter.
 Enjoy the snaps and I'll be quiet. You know how hard that is for me to do, don't you? :)
 At 39 years of age, my daughter still amazes us with her cartwheels! Watch out, Angela, you'll break your wrists!!
 Did I mention wigglin'? :)
I think you can see by our drunk silly smiles how we were enjoying our time in upstate New York! It snowed one day and then warmed up pretty nicely. Mr. Precious and I took off one day and drove to Mystic, Connecticut..'member the movie "Mystic Pizza" when Julia Roberts was starting out? Yep, that Mystic. I just appreciate you all so very much and all of your comments to my silly blog. My heart is still smiling! ;) I have more things to share with you a little later on. I want to now, but shoot, I'll have to wait a bit.

I love you, my sweeties,
Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

You Are The Sunshine Of My Life

You are the sunshine of my life
That's why I'll always be around,
You are the apple of my eye,
Forever you'll stay in my heart

I feel like this is the beginning,
Though I've loved you for a million years,
And if I thought our love was ending,
I'd find myself drowning in my own tears

You are the sunshine of my life,
That's why I'll always stay around,
You are the apple of my eye,
Forever you'll stay in my heart

You must have known that I was lonely,
Because you came to my rescue,
And I know that this must be heaven,
How could so much love be inside of you?

You are the sunshine of my life, yeah,
That's why I'll always stay around,
You are the apple of my eye,
Forever you'll stay in my heart

I'm Back And I Have A Daring Darling Bathroom Snapping Diva

Hello, Dear Ones! Did you think I had fallen off the face of Blogland? Well, I am back and have so much to tell you! I hope you all had a blessed Easter with family and friends. Of course, I was in hog heaven getting to be with my little grandchildren. So I'll have stories and pictures up...

Attention! Attention! I have just been informed someone has broken down the bathroom door and snapped! Yes, my dear what is she talking about ones? We haven't had anyone snapping in a bathroom for some time now. Let me explain...I am the Queen of all Bathroom Divas and I have the special powers to determine if someone is a fake snapper or a genuine Bathroom Beauty Snapping Diva. There are so many imposters out there and we must be so careful.
Let me get my special toilet brush and I will go to work. I love this stuff!
As I've said before, there are many imposters out there ~ they want to be in our most illustrious group of true Divas but no one can tell the difference but me, the Bathroom Queen Diva! After all, I have the power, the Bathroom power!
 Okay, here we go, Most Hang On To Your Toilet Paper Roll Ones! Now I do see a most gorgeous one with the creamiest of complexions! Her locks are so beautiful and I see highlights that can only come from a Bathroom, Most Only Her Hairdresser Knows For Sure Ones.
 I see the most gorgeous shining peepers and pearly whites. They are so white I can see them sparkling even behind those luscious lips! I see a smile that could break down a bathroom door too!
This beauty is clad to the nines with a most slender arm and a dainty hand attached with creamy fingers connected to a camera!! Yes! Yes!! We have a genuine Bathroom Diva! Like one of you said to me in an email a while back ~ I feel like a Queen on my throne holding a Royal Flush!! :)
Do we know this most Gorgeous One? Sure we do ~ this is our most famous celebrated distinguished immortal illustrious Cleo who blogs at Designs By Cleo!

I am just so thrilled to welcome our newest Bathroom Beauty Snapping Diva to our most elite group of Divas! Welcome, Diva Cleo! 

Oh, my goodness, how I love my job! Okay, Cleo would you please come and stand before me? Most Helpful Ones, will you please hand me my special toilet brush. No, no, the golden one! Thank you, Dears. Does my hair look okay? What? Well, this is Cleo, you know from Designs by Cleo after all! I'm a bit nervous. Shh... No, I can do this. I am the Queen Diva, after all, just a little bit rusty.

Okay, Most Dear Gorgeous Cleo, you have gone where many have feared, you have snapped when many would have crumbled, you have overcome all obstacles and have joined the most elite group of Bathroom Divas! I crown you now as a Daring Darling Bathroom Beauty Snapping Diva.
You are one now and will be one forever and ever and until the twelfth of never.
Go forth Diva Cleo and hold your toilet brush high and proclaim your Divaness to the world.
Pop on over and welcome our new Diva Cleo to the clan!
 
Whew! That was exhilarating, Most Energized Ones! I'll bet you thought I had lost it, didn't you? My Bathroom Powers haven't surfaced in a while but once a Diva, always a Diva! :)
You can take the below button that I have made especially for you with my most talented creamy dainty fingers and place on your blog for all to see and to make your friend so jealous! 
If you're sad that you are not part of this most distinguished elitist of groups, never fear. You too can take your camera (with the flash off) and snap a picture of yourself standing in front of a mirror. It really doesn't have to be a bathroom as I've eased up in my olden years. Send your snap to me or post about it on your blog and let me know. I will then take your most gorgeous snap, post about it and crown you a Bathroom Diva Snapper! Aw, come on, you know you want to! :) You can read how it all started up at the top of my blog under the header if you'd like.

I would never ask you to do anything I'm not willing to do myself. Observe...
Had to get my daughter and little Carter to help me out! It wasn't too hard and you can see Carter was very serious about this. She wanted all of you to see her little cute face! 
Now come on and help me keep my Bathroom powers alive and snap on, Dear Bathroom Divas.
I'll leave you with our official Bathroom Diva Song ~

Taking Care of Business

You get up every morning
From your alarm clock's warning
Take the 8:15 into the city
There's a whistle up above
And people pushin', people shovin'
And the girls who try to look pretty
And if your train's on time
You can get to work by nine
And start your slaving job to get your pay
If you ever get annoyed
Look at me I'm self-employed
I love to work at nothing all day
And I'll be...
Taking care of business every day
Taking care of business every way
I've been taking care of business, it's all mine
Taking care of business and working overtime
Work out
If it were easy as fishin'
You could be a musician
If you could make sounds loud or mellow
Get a second-hand guitar
Chances are you'll go far
If you get in with the right bunch of fellows
People see you having fun
Just a-lying in the sun
Tell them that you like it this way
It's the work that we avoid
And we're all self-employed
We love to work at nothing all day
And we be...
Taking care of business every day
Taking care of business every way
I've been taking care of business, it's all mine
Taking care of business and working overtime
Take good care of my business
When I'm away, every day whoo!
Takin' care of business
Takin' care of business
Takin' care of business
Takin' care of business
Takin' care of business

A Little Change

Hello, Dear Ones.
Well, you know how it is...things don't stay the same too long around our homes. I thought I'd do something different to my lawyer bookshelves in the breakfast room. I have kept my cookbooks in this forever. I took them out and thought ~ what can I put in there?
 I gathered up some Jadeite, Fire King and a little Pyrex and poked them all in there.
 I like how it turned out, do you? Well, it's kinda hard to get a good snap through the glass ~ the glare, you know.
 So I opened up all of the doors so you could see my stuff better.
 I always have to start at the top. My tiny little lamp always stays here. I brought over my new/olden scale and added a couple of yard birds. Oh, they were happy to get out!
 I've been picking up pieces of Jadeite every chance I get and here lately I've been getting the chance!
I found some measuring cups!! Yip Yip! And, a D handled mug. I've learned there are D handled mugs and C handled ones! Hmmm....must find some more. I know it looks all dusty inside the cabinet but it's not because I just dusted it when it was empty. It's just very olden. I probably need to add some light colored covered board to the back to brighten it up a bit. Painting is a no no ~ Mr. Precious would cut my tiny head off if I touched this with a paint brush.
Okie dokie! Just a little change and I kinda like it! Well, for now, you know how it is. :)
I also wanted to tell you I'll be taking a couple of weeks off because I'm going to see these little ones...
We're going to spend Easter with Carter and Camp! I'm so excited I just about can't stand it! So...I won't be posting but if I get the chance I'll be popping in to see you! I want to wish you all a very blessed Easter now in advance!!

You are all my bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

They Could Not

They looked at Him and saw a single man
A carpenter with healing in His hands
They saw Him calm a sea and heal a dying man
They saw but could they really understand

They could not, They could not
Though they tried, they could not
He was just a simple carpenter but with healing in His hands
But could they really understand, they could not

They listened to the teaching that they heard
They wondered at the mystery of His word
They wondered what He meant, about a Father's plan
They heard but could they really understand

They could not, They could not
Though they tried, they could not
They listened to the teaching about a Father's plan
But could they really understand, they could not

So finally upon a rugged cross
They killed the man who would not suffer loss
And when at last they took what willingly He gave
He died, but could they keep Him in the grave

They could not, They could not
Praise God, they could not
And when at last they took from Him what willingly He gave
Could they keep Him in the grave, could they keep Him in the grave,
Could they keep Him in the grave...

They could not, They could not
Praise God, they could not
And when at last they took from Him what willingly He gave
Could they keep Him in the grave, could they keep Him in the grave,
Could they keep Him in the grave, They could not

Just Some Cuteness


Hello, Dear Ones!
I thought I would just show you a little cuteness today! I love cuteness, don't you?
Just cute little figurines in their own little cute world.
A cute little boy playing cute little melodies on his cute little flute.
Cute little couple from Holland, well, from the airport in Holland, being ever so cute fetching water or is that milk? and picking cute little flowers with their cute little doggy at their feet.

Are you all cutenessed up now? Are you smiling? I hope you are. I know I am.


Be a bunch of cute sweeties,
Shelia;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

When You're Smilin'

When you're smilin' keep on smilin'
The whole world smiles with you
And when you're laughin' oh when youre laughin'
The sun comes shinin? through

But when you?re cryin' you bring on the rain
So stop your sighin 'be happy again
keep on smilin Cause when you're smilin'
The whole world smiles with you

Oh when you're smilin' keep on smilin'
The whole world smiles with you
Ah when you're laughin' keep on laughin'
The sun comes shinin' through

Now when you're cryin' you bring on the rain
So stop that sighin' be happy again
keep on smilin Cause when you're smilin'
And the whole world smiles with you

The great big world will smile with

The whole wide world will smile with you
