food and files.

Last night I spent some quality time with my neglected Spring 2012 memories and my pantry (what? I was hungry). I think I’ve gotten things to a manageable and shareable level.

While I was hunting around I realized that I missed an entire half of my California pictures when I first edited and shared them. It was kind of a fun surprise, actually. It let me relive those awesome moments.

Like when I walked around and grabbed a couple shots that have my grandparents fingerprints all over them. This planter filled with succulents is my Grama’s signature handiwork.

And this birdhouse replica (in progress) of the old one room schoolhouse that is now my grandparent’s home (of 50 years) is quintessentially my Grandpa.

As is his very right-brained system of garage organization.

Let’s just say, “they don’t call me John Keith’s left-handed, right-brained granddaughter for nothing.”

I ran across Ephraim engaging in possibly his favorite California experience…riding the gator with my Uncle Mark.

And Sarah and Charlotte fixated on what was once my favorite Carlton Road pastime with my sister…building a fort out of junk!

I got to relive my dumbest moment when I almost bought five dollars worth of the same five lottery numbers.

Finding those lost Cali pictures also reminded me how much I love my little cousins, Noah and Aaron. Noah’s always been the creative, musical one…

Who apparently makes a worthy wrestling opponent when you’re talking about a little round of 3 on 1.

Aaron’s always been super athletic and studious.

Checking out one of his baseball games while we’re in town is always high on the kids’ list.

Which is about 50% because they think Aaron is awesome and 50% because they’re concession stand connoisseurs.

And while I have nothing to say about these next three photos (they speak for themselves)…

I’m happy to have found those too. Here’s to cleaning out the ol’ files (and pantry)!

Your “dumbest” lotto moment might not have been so dumb. I read an article earlier in the week about a Virginia woman who won two shares of a lottery because she held two tickets with the same number: “It’s not that uncommon for people to buy tickets in games with the same number, but this is the biggest prize we’ve ever had in Virginia of two tickets in the same drawing,” Virginia Lottery spokesman John Hagerty told I’ve got your back. 😉

I really enjoyed this post. It reminded me of my grandparents who were all about a quirkily organized workshop, succulents, and the best garden ever. I miss them. Enjoy yours all that you can!

Wish I knew you were going to the game – I would’ve made a trip over there! Sorry I missed you this visit… 🙁
