I can’t even believe how long it has taken for me to update this little corner of the web. Life’s been oh so busy, but so very good. I am thankful for the Lord’s continued patience with me as He’s been teaching me to trust Him more fully with each passing day.
Each and every day has been a new adventure all it’s own!
I’m sitting right now in the waiting room at a local hospital waiting on my first little nephew to arrive. It’s hard to believe that my brother is grown and married and having a baby dear of his own. I still remember running around the yard fighting with lightsabers and filming our own movies and playing Legos and perfecting paper airplanes….later on, sipping coffee together in the mornings before we each started our respective jobs for the day while chatting about the latest happenings or interesting tidbits.
The rest of us have been busy with general life and “happenin’s” here at the Lambert Estate. =]
My parents went out-of-town fairly recently, and I decided it would be fun to go and participate in “Cow Appreciation Day” for the first time with the sibs. We enjoyed ourselves immensely! A few of Matthew and Jessica’s friends came along as well, which meant that with the extra help, we were able to go and actually eat inside of the Chick-fil-a. I was planning on everyone grabbing their meals and us heading back out. I also want to give a “shout out” to Regions Bank. Thank you for being the best bank ever (not biased here, being a Regions user), and also for the use of the parking spot in your parking lot. It was a wonderful thing to be able to park the big van in your parking lot rather than trying to maneuver the van around the already-crowded Chick-fil-a parking lot. It was so great! =]
What else has been happening lately?
I broke down and purchased my first pair of Converse fairly recently. I have absolutely loved them! I’ve got another pair on the way (high tops this time!) that is supposed to be here in the next couple of days. They’ve become the subjects of several recent photos:
I love Converse, I love coffee. It all works out. =D
I’ve been doing a little painting in several varieties. Wall painting, trim painting, picture painting, spray painting…I’m sporting paint “tattoos” more often than not, LOL! =]
Here’s a watercolor project I’m working on at present- it still needs quite a bit of shading and additional colors, but it’s getting there.
I spray-painted stars on our back lawn for our 4th of July celebration:
and this cornhole board got built from scrap wood:
I’m trying to decide what I want to build next. I’m always looking for a good excuse to use the power tools….*evil laugh*
There’s been a bit of time for some sewing projects as well…this little bunny is for my new little nephew:
I’m really tickled with how it turned out.
I’ve had the opportunity to study under a new strings “teacher” for a while now (a good friend of mine and fellow music-fanatic), so I’ve been busy working on various strings techniques and songs, in addition to trying a few new instruments. It has been so much fun, and a huge learning experience for me. We’ve been playing different pieces and scales together, and it’s been really awesome to hear what the different harmonies and such sound like when played together. I typically get up and practice first thing in the morning, so I’ve been grabbing a lot of early morning instrument shots. I have loved playing with the sunrise light, fog, and whatnot while grabbing pics. I know, I’m weird. =]
I’m going to go ahead and wrap this up for the moment. I’ll try to post a little more soon! I’ve been accumulating pictures for a while now, so there’s quite a few still to go! =] I’ll end with this random photo of a local carnival. I didn’t attend, but was with another photographer friend of mine and we decided to grab a few shots. =D
A very blessed day to you, friends-o-mine! =]
