Sorry that I haven't been on here for so long.  
Last week was so busy, and so fun!

I posted about going to lunch with Darlene last 
Tuesday, and then I never got back on here.

We sold our little vintage trailer to the sweetest older couple who wanted it so that they could camping by the river.  That meant that I had to clean it all out, and go through my crafts and supplies that I had stored inside of it.

I think that I am going to try to open an Etsy shop to try and 
sell my photography, postcards and other items.  People seem to also have really good luck using E-bay soI will be looking into that too.

I had a job interview that seemed very promising last week.  
That is all that I can say right now, except that I am excited and hopeful at this point.

Then I had to clean the house and get it ready for the house-sitter, because we decided to go to Seaside last weekend to watch our grandson Johnny play in his basketball tournament.

It was really fun to spend time with Johhny and Shanna, 
as well as meeting their friends and team members.

I'll be posting more about that trip throughout this week.

Seaside is a resort town on the north coast of Oregon.  It is really a neat place for both children and adults to visit.  I took these pictures of the merry-go-round in the Carousel Mall.

Over the weekend, I took over 400 pictures.  Many of those were of the kids playing ball, but I have lots of others too.  Last night and this morning, I sorted through and developed most of them, and made two albums for Facebook.

I just wanted to make this quick post and let 
you know that we are doing fine and are having fun.

I think that this week may be just as busy, and we are looking forward to a visit from some Eugene friends on Saturday.

I hope that you all doing well.

Happy Monday,

Kathy M.

I like carousels and this one is fabulous; even a giraffe and a rabbit. That sounds like a nice mini trip you took to see the sports event and family.

Love the photos of the carousel! Seaside is so much fun! Family grandchildren are always a great time as well! You cannot go wrong with that combation. Busy lady you are! Prayers for job that you interviewed on.

Wonderful colours in that carousel and you seem to have been in a merry-go-round of fun for a few days. Glad to see you're back safe and sound.

We all good here. e worked in the yard today, taking advantage of the sunshine. Rain returns tomorrow.
We drive through Seaside on our way to the family cabin at Rockaway Beach, but don't usually spend much time there. It is definitely a tourist city.

I love, love carousels. They are so magical and beautiful. I still ride them whenever I get to an amusement park. Stunning pictures, my friend.

I already commented on this post, ha ha, but just now read your comment on my blog, where you wrote that you may buy one of my books. I think that is exciting and if you do, would you post a review on, it really helps us authors when folks publish reviews.
Your blog friend, Terra.
