What I have discovered! (with lots of pics)



I have discovered in life that sometimes  you just have to go with the flow. I am the kind of person that  has lists, wants to accomplish all kinds of things, and I need to remind myself that I need to stop and smell the roses.


Well in this case I need to stop and take time for people ~ family!


This morning it is a gorgeous sunny morning. The windows and doors are open and there is a breeze blowing through. I am stopping life just to enjoy it. I am thinking about the HOT summer that is ahead of us here in Northern California, the anticipation of  the heat is helping me realize that this breeze is not to be taken for granted. I will savor a few moments with my coffee and sit on the patio and enjoy the garden for a few minutes…….. and maybe cake for breakfast…hhhmmmm Would you like to join me? I made homemade chocolate cake for Krysten’s birthday. There is a little left to share.

The flowers are beautiful!


Well back to reality. It has been a busy week. So much to share! Where do I start??? Well first of all our youngest son Timothy and his girlfriend Krysten went to her Prom on Saturday evening. They were so adorable all dressed up. They made the rounds to parents and grandparents for some really nice photo shoots. I won’t bore you with too many, but you know I will have to share a few, as any good mom would.


Pics at her grandparents home.



And of course…..airplanes! Timothy has had a few flying lessons and is still contemplating being a pilot.(scares me to death!)

They stopped in to visit her Dad at work. They are so thoughtful.


savoring the moments…………………….


As I mentioned in a previous post, our daughter and son-in-law have bought a new home. I it not very far from us and we are excited that they will be close from now on. We have had the grand's this week on a few different occasions. The final paperwork, moving etc.

So much to do ! They are so tired.



The development is on a hill and over looks the city.

Here is a quick pic.

I have been trying to keep up with things…… Packages sent. Giveaways pkgs have gone out, orders are shipped. (A huge thank you to hubby for all of his help with this. He cuts most things for me, and does most of the shipping. Thank you hun!!)GEDC1115

Just when I thought I was caught up, I woke up to another order on etsy. I am not complaining at all. I am so thankful for the business!! We are planning a trip Back East for a family reunion (it has been four years since we have been back). We miss everyone so much! We are trying to drum up a little more business to help cover the cost of our travels and stay in NH. We would appreciate it so if you would share our info with anyone that you know that may be interested in our made in America products. I have designed a few new Americana items as well as several other items, signs, garden pics etc. Lots of wonderful yard décor and gift ideas. They can be found on our etsy; on our facebook page at salmonfallsprims cocarus, or you can email me if you see something you are interested in. We specialize in custom orders.


Thank you all so much!!


I will share a few of the creations with you. I won’t show you exactly what was sent for the giveaways. I will let them share with you. But it may be one of these items…….
