Fall Sunsets

  Evening all~   I love the fall for the colors of the trees and the crisp smell in the air....   But, in the fall and early winter Tennessee has the most colorful and beautiful sunsets.   This one was taken the evening before Thanksgiving. Old Hickory Lake over near the dam. The ducks flying into the sunset made the photo.     Took this one on my way home yesterday evening. It was taken on Percy Preist Lake right at the dam. (I live between both lakes).   Check out those colors.     I got this as I was driving home. I looked up just in time to pass the tree in front of those beautiful colors....   I STOPPED!   AMAZING colors!   Thanks for stopping in, Pam

Holly's Senior Pics

Image niece Holly is graduating from high school this year. was time for her senior pictures.   At the start of doing them, Dad wanted in on the adventure!   lol..     This is so much better. I love it.     Holly and I ventured to the barn. My oldest brother has the best area for shooting pics like this. I have done several photo sessions out there.   Look at that beautiful smile.     This is just aunt Pam messing around with a pic I took. I set it up in color pencil. I think it looks so neat.     I love the black and whites.     Isn't she just so pretty?     Lots of props to play around with at the barn.           This was taken at the edge of the woods where the wild flowers and weeds had died. Thought it made an awesome shot.         Just the beginning. We plan on going downtown to do some shooting next. I will also be doing some for my nephew Cobi

Thanksgiving and Family

Thanksgiving! The time to be thankful and to spend time with family. My brother has the most room so we had dinner there.   I made a homemade carrot cake.     And homemade cream cheese icing! It was yummy.   Every year I make the stuffed or deviled eggs. My brothers and nephew love these.   I have the HUGE jar of HUGE pickles. I prefer dill instead of sweet. So this baby got chopped up.   The finished product.   This is one reason why I do not cook. I mess up so much and I don't like cleaning it up. LOL   But I did clean. Looks better now.   Turkey, ham and all the fixings.   The last of the turkey that remained in tack.   Then it was time for family pics. My younger brother Mark and his beautiful wife Kim and my sweet niece Holly.   Course they love to mess around!   My handsome nephew, Chase, his pretty wife, Susan and my adorable great nephew, Cole.   My oldest bro

Surgery or a Cold

  I had rotator cuff surgery on August 14, 2012. I had a 100% tear in a muscle, and a 100% tear in a tendon. Repair consisted of going in and cleaning up all the trash and and worn areas, grinding of the spur that had caused the tears, sew up the two tears, anchors installed in the bone to attach the muscle and tendon back to the bone. According to my doc's office, what I had done was equal to a total knee replacement.         Physical Therapy was to last from 4 to 6 months. I breezed through major surgery, I breezed through recovery and I was out of PT in 3 monhts. Amazing.   The hardest part of it all was being limited to this sling for 4 weeks.     And having to sleep here for 4 to 5 weeks.     But even 3 months of this was not bad.   (PT)   I was released to go back to work at 6 weeks with  the limit of only working 4 hours a day and not lifting over 2 lbs.   Two weeks of that and I am released to go to wo

Shopping with ME

Recently I attended a conference in Pigeon Forge, TN., in the Smoky Mountains. The day hours were spent attending the conference. But the nights were ours. My two partners in crime (just a saying)... the two women I work with love to shop. I on the other hand do not like shopping! But I tagged along, what time I was not sitting in the van driving them from store to store. I found myself in Kirklands! Oh yeah, my kind of store. But this is how I shop~ I try things on! Like sock monkey hats! HI there! From there I went to the cool look...yep, not doing much for me! I did go in the dress store cause they told me the Statue of Liberty was in there... Great photo op. She was a tad short for me. Loved this apron! Needed a hat with it. But it was cute. I loved this one! FROG! This next pic was taken a couple years ago. I was at JC Penney's trying on clearance shoes! Then I ad
