Today I was looking through my phone pictures for something, I’d love to tell you what I was looking for, but I was so distracted by the random pictures on my phone, I forgot all about the original search, I decided to share the random with you. Kind of as a thank you for checking back with me while I did nothing, but everything these last few months.I think E made this, it is some sort of baby game on her aunts phone, but maybe the game is on my phone too? I have no idea, but I don’t think I care enough to look for it or ask about it.We live in the south, we see lizards every day, every. single. day. They are fast and dart around, but every now and again, one is slow. Someone shut the door while he was in the way. Even better than a half squished dead lizard is that one of my children felt it necessary to document it. Not one picture but 5 pictures. Lucky for you I only shared one picture.O saved every note she took in her classes, every report and every test. After graduation she gifted us with everything. R was lucky enough to be the gift receiver of some notes, he will appreciate the next 2 years. Everything she gave me was dumped right into our recycling bin. (There is another stack behind the notebook R is looking at, and another stack on a chair.)We are trying to sell the pool pump, Because, our pool sadly blew up, or blew out to be exact. The metal was rusty, and split, the top brace bar had rusted apart in 5 areas around the top of the pool. When the side panel burst apart 5 more panels blew out. (Sad thing is, it looks nicer in the picture than it did in real life, it was nasty!!!) The pump was only a year or two old. I took the picture to put it on craigslist. Does anyone out there need a new pump I can make you a great deal!Some days you just need to wear white satin gloves to school.Sometimes you just have to Yolo. I was afraid having high school siblings was making her grow up too fast. I started to laugh “whaaaaaat? I just wrote yellow. You know mom the COLOR.” *sigh* I got this for the college girl! We had to empty the dining room, Keith was doing the finish work on the windows he installed. I know what a dusty mess woodworking can make we emptied the room to avoid some of the tedious clean up work.When your house is almost 100 years old and you replace the original windows with similar looking energy efficient windows, you have to do a little work to make it fit. To look at it now you would not know that my windows looked like this after he put the new ones in.Traffic jam around one of our lakes.
When Mama Duck says lets go for a walk, we all stop for her walk.“Look Momma, I got a worm in school today, his name is Harry” (Not even Kidding)I had a rental for a day. It was so much fun, now I want a truck, but not a sissy truck, a TRUCK-truck! I sent this picture to Keith to show him how cool I was. I think sending the picture to tell him I was cool, kind of took away my coolness factor. I don’t care, I had a TRUCK to drive.For R’s art final they had to take a selfie, then paint it. Faces are hard to paint, he found a way around it. And really THIS is how we see him all summer long anyway.On vacation C had showered and dressed before R ever saw him. After they sat down did we all realize they were matching.Neither boy would change… So they stayed matching most of the day.On our way home from vacation, my mom texted to ask where we were.
I had no idea so I sent her a picture.Yes, that is ketchup on the wall above J’s head, right over my white chair…Someone was supposed to be giving me directions to her bff’s house, instead she was taking selfies…The last random picture on my phone is an author I just enjoyed her first two books in a mystery series, I was afraid I would forget her name so I took a quick picture at the library before I turned it in. I did not yet check out the 3rd book because someone else has it…
What about you and your phone? Is it full of surprising pictures?
Go hug your kids, time marches on and they need your love.
