1. Hi Christie
    Sounds like you had a very full and wonderful week. I love the picture of your nails. Very artistic. I also love your sleeping grandkids. I have a lot of those photos too.
    This week I’m grateful to be retired. It special gift has allowed me to be able to help a friend in need.

    • Thanks Laura. It has been a wonderful week. So nice that you could be there for a friend. Retirement–and a more flexible schedule–definitely sound like things I would be grateful for too.

  2. I enjoyed reading about your week Christie. Love the nails and the intricate designs. I do my own nails sometimes but can’t do designs like this. Your grandchildren are such a joy and you are blessed with 10! Loved your shoes I bought a similar pair in black recently. Great work with your running and good luck for the 10K. Have a great weekend.

  3. love the nails! I’m going to paint mine this afternoon… not as cutely, but you inspired me to get some color on.

    So many things to be grateful for this week – a lovely date nite with hubby, buying a new car (first one in 12 years), a Thai-yoga massage to receive stress (car buying is not fun… it should be but it’s more stress than fun), packing to head to our beach cottage for a long visit… life is pretty good!

    • I used to paint my own nails, but I got frustrated when they chipped or smudged, so I tried the shellac and have never looked back. It lasts forever–or until the nails start growing out–which for me is two weeks. Your week sounds heavenly, with a new car, a massage, and a beach trip. Yeah you! Enjoy.

  4. I have a standing nail appointment every two weeks. It’s a luxury that I give myself because my nails, if left to their own devices, would be cracked and peeling. I don’t do anything fancy though… perhaps I should 🙂

    Your mention of your daughter going off to Greece reminded me of my first trip to Europe with a girlfriend long ago. My parents loved to travel and I expect that they felt a similar feeling of pride when I made my first journey.

    And… I use PicMonkey to add my watermark to some of my photos and for some fun stuff. For more intricate/artistic photo editing, I use a software called Luminar.

    • I like the nail art periodically. I do get tired of it before the two weeks are up, if its too much.

      I am proud of my daughter for facing her fears to get what she wants.

      So far I’ve primarily used Picmonkey for optimizing photo size. I may experiment with some other effects while I’m in my trial period.

  5. Looks like you had a very nice week. Your nails looks great! I know you enjoyed the runs, good for you!! Ah, clouds from an airplane 🙂 And best of all – visits and sleepovers with the grandbabies! Shared your post x 4 ♥
