5 fun facts...

Oh my goodness...Friday once again.  
And by now, you know what that means... 5 Fact FridaY.
I just love sharing little tidbits about myself and 
getting to know alittle bit more about you too! 

I spent most of the summer helping my mother move from her condo to
an independent senior living center.  It was alot of work packing and moving and unpacking 85 years of her treasures, but now it is done...
It was so worth my time seeing her so happy and active there!

Now i am trying to grab some me time.  
A new on line class started this week...Lightroom with the amazing Kim Klassen.  If anyone can teach me this, i know she will!
And i started a knitting class at a real brick~and~motar store...
it is so fun to spend a night each week learning how to knit a new project with fellow knitters.

Fact 1...I love flowers.  I love their buds, their blooms and even their weary spent heads.

Fact 2...I love my hometowne.  Everytime i take a walk, i find some new nook to photograph.  I just love this little secluded area with their bright umbrellas and chairs...and they serve the most delicious gelatto.

Fact 3...I love the first day of school.
Those who know me are thinking....what?  
My children are way beyond that age now...but there is still something about the tradition of kids heading off to school for their first day that makes me feel so nostalgic...sigh...

Fact 4...I love pumpkins.  I love their colours, textures and wonderful stems!

And now for the best most wonderful Fun Fact of all...

Fact 5...This week i just added my 1ooth  facebook friend!!
Now that is exciting...but it even gets way better.
Guess who that 100th person is?

Kim mentor, my leader, and now i can friend!

Well, there you have it...5 more little Fun Facts about me.  
I can not wait to learn alittle bit about you too.  Just click on the banner above to join in on this super fun linky party...see you there!

  13. Thanks so much for stopping by -- I'm so glad your mom is pleased with her new place. That would be alot of work to move, but worth the effort if she is happy. :)

  14. Nancy, I loved hearing about your mother more than the facts. I bet you did have a busy summer. I appreciate the photos. I am a color photo person myself. I try to do these fancy faded photos, but color is in my blood.


Thank you for your kind words. I enjoy reading each and every comment!
