Sorry for the delay in writing in and updating what has been happening at Casa Carroll. We have been busy trying to get all the outdoor items completed before the weather changes. We completed the extension on the driveway this week and we are hoping to get the sprinkler system in this next week. Then we just have to airate and seed the lawn and we are going to call it quits for this year. Next we move on to Delaney’s room. We have everything picked out, so we should be able to move along quickly. This is a project we can do when the weather get crappy, so we didn’t rush to get it started. Other then that we have been attending family reunions on the Carroll side and finalizing baby stuff like classes, etc. Buffy is doing great. She is getting excited to go to the beach!! We are going for a long weekend to Myrtle Beach and we usually take her along for this trip. She loves to body surf in the waves. It’s fun because we get to swim with her!! She also loves going to Uncle Jerry’s and see her brother and daddy!! Bob has been working his hinney off trying to get as much done as possible. He takes any work he can get right now, so we can pay to complete these projects. He goes to Baltimore the 1st weekend in September to play softball with the firemen, so he is looking forward to that. A little time away to play!! Then he will get to enjoy the time as a family in MB. That’s the trip where we take it easy and really relax! I’m very excited about my shower this weekend. I can’t wait to see everyone and be able to hang out.

“I wish you could have been there for the sun & the rain & the long, hard hills. For the sound of a thousand conversations scattered along the road. For the people laughing & crying & remembering at the end. But, mainly, I wish you could have been there.” Brian Andreas
Hard to believe that 32 years ago mama died. Each day I miss her more and the void she left never seems to diminish or fade. I loved this lady and wish she could be here.
“Breaking the Hold of Routine”
The “comfort zones” of life are defined in large measure by our habits. Question the living patterns of your week. How much of your time is spent mundanely because you are too lazy to do something different? Are you learning from each day? Does each day hold any special significance? Prioritize the things that fulfil you most. Build them into the pattern.
To laugh often and much….a good laugh lifts your spirits, touches your heart and enriches your life.
“Every moment of your life is infinitely creative and the universe is endlessly bountiful”
Life is a constant process of creation and we will only be truly fulfilled and happy when our creativity is allowed to express itself.
Today- cook a meal, redecorate a room, take a picture, paint, plant a garden, sing a song (even if it is off key) Just have some fun some where in your day. Don’t forget to smile!
“Wherever you go, there you are”
We tend to believe that if we were somewhere else- somehow we would be happier and more content. We wouldn’t! The truth is, if you have destructive mental habits- if you get annoyed or bothered easily, if you feel angry and frustrated, or if you find yourself constantly wishing things were different, these tendencies will follow you, wherever you go. As you focus more on becoming more peaceful with where you are, rather than focusing on where you would rather be, you begin to find peace right now, in the present.
A week ago I went fishing with a friend of mine from college and some co-workers. We had a blast! I just thought my family would be proud that I still try to get a little fishing in when I can! Oh, and the picture is me with the very first (and pretty much the only) catch of the day/night. It was not a keeper, but worthy of documenting just the same. I think the only thing we really caught was a “buzz” off the frosty beverages we consumed after all the tiresome casting! I wish I could do this more often. Until the next fishing excursion…
