Happy Easter!!

First and foremost, I want to wish everyone of my blogging friends a very happy and blessed Easter.

I have been working in my yard, have had sick grandbabies, electrical work and all kind of fun things and some not so fun.

One of the fun things was the girls and I made Troll headbands.  I took them to see the Troll movie and thought it was so cute that I got them the DVD when it came out.  So, they have had fun with their Troll headbands.  Aren't they precious?  As usual, Kaycee (lower left corner) was not happy about having her picture made.  LOL

Just some shots of my pretty yard...

yellow roses - you that know me well, know how special yellow roses are to me...

I also have white and pink roses...

so many variations in the colors of the irises...

geraniums doing well...

and the Hostas are huge already.

Hope everyone has a blessed Easter day.

Spring and Skydiving

Spring is definitely busting out all over.

The Lilies of the Valley are coming out like crazy.

I have been busy the last two weeks.  I had two electricians for eight hours a day for five days.  They replaced all of my vintage light fixtures in the house, put in three new ceiling fans, ran electricity to the new storage building, put lights on the storage building, lights on the new deck and replaced the electrical panel in the garage.  

Then last Sunday night I had a precious new great granddaughter addition to our family. My granddaughter Cassie and her husband Mikeal had their first baby. I got pictures but they are on my phone and I'm having trouble downloading them to the computer.  

In addition to all of this activity, my computer got hacked and I spent an afternoon with the tech fixing the problem.

Now, are you ready for a few more photos of my skydiving escapade???  If not, you can leave now.  LOL

I landed and got my certificate and my Diet Coke!!

Hope you enjoy!

Well, I did it!!

They called later in the day and said the clouds had lifted and we could go skydiving if we wanted.

So, Tiff and I headed out to Skiatook - a town about 20 minutes from Tulsa.

We had to go thru an orientation and we suited up. 

Geared up and ready to fly.

I was a little shocked at how small the plane was.

We flew tandum - with an instructor on our back.  It took us 20 minutes to get to 10,000 feet and 6 minutes to dive.  I didn't like the free fall out of the plane at all.  But, once the parachute opened, it was fantastic.  I lost my glasses somewhere along the way.

Tiff chose to wear a jump suit.  I didn't cause I had on jeans.

It's 30 degrees cooler at 10,000 feet.  But the temp outside was 80 so it wasn't bad at all.

We got certificates and applause! 

The crew at Skydive Airtight were fabulous.  They were so good at making you feel as comfortable as you possibly could and making sure you understood everything.  The divers had cameras on their wrist bands and took pictures all the way - some 400.

So, I marked one more thing off of my Bucket List.  I am glad I did it and it was very exciting but


When I get the video I will share with you.

Enjoy your weekend.
