Tennis pic from this year

It was a family affair this sisters and their kids played with my sons and I, and my mother in law was there too. Also three fellow homeschoolers we know and some of the tennis players from last year were there, so everyone had a ball, we all pretty much knew each other. My friend Kelly took this pic, thank goodness, I forgot my camera every stinking week lol.

Tennis in the Parks

My kids and I take Tennis lessons at the local parks dept...these pics are from last years lessons....they are so reasonably priced (25 dollars for 8 weeks of lessons!). We had such a blast last year, so we took it again this year and we are going to take the advanced class in Aug also. I have to take updated pics this year, as my kids have grown, both of my sisters and my nieces, and also my mother in law all signed up this year so I want some updated pictures. Tennis is fun, and free (plus gas lol), if you play in parks. We met up with some friends to pay king of the court and we all had a blast...we love playing tennis.

My Wolfgang Puck Appliances

I haven't posted for awhile, as I have been busy, both in my life and in my groups. I run a few yahoo groups and figured, I would write them up here today to at least get something written in my boring blog that has not had any activity for awhile...

My favorite kitchen tools (next to my hands) are my Wolfgang Puck Pressure Cooker, Rice Cooker and Immersion Blender. Don't get me wrong, I love my professional kitchen aid stand mixer my hubby bought me...but as far as use, Wolfie's stuff gets used the most. Wolfgang, Deb Murray (cook book author and food stylist for Wolfgang Puck and also Suzanne Somers, and Marian Getz, Wolfgang's pastry chef are awesome people and I adore all they do for the group, to help us get the most out of our appliances....

If you want to join my WP Pressure Cooker group, go to

If you want to join my WP Rice Cooker Group, and this is a large group, go to

and I also have a

WP Panini Grill group, its small, just starting out

I run these groups and when Wolfgang, Deb and Marian are on HSN selling, I get extremely busy in group with people talking about it, and newcomers joining us.

Parakeet, snapping turtle and bald eagle

Sorry, been MIA again.

We had that parakeet in our yard for two weeks. Then for the past week and a half, we have not seen it.

We were outside removing this snapping turtle from the road yesterday and a neighbor from up the street came by and stopped to tell us about the bald eagle that was up the street last week. It stopped traffic. Everyone wanted to get a picture of it.
