July in a Nutshell

So July 2012 was the month that was! We had five weekends, 3 sets of guests and gave two parties. Both my husband and I each had a trip away. A busy, wonderful, glorious month!



Not without it's perils though for I had blogging issues that kept me silent for nearly two weeks! 

But see?  Resolved....I'm adding photos!


My last day at Disney with some very special characters at Animal World!

I had to change from Firefox to Internet Explorer which was a simple fix considering all the hoops I jumped through trying to get my pictures to load using the server I've always used.  Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men?  Not I.  All I know is that I can't repair things, I must just find a different path. 


My Disney time during Mid July was fabulous!


Ginny, Rebecca and I at Epcot

Ginny and Rebecca, my best friends from Dayton OH, were weekend guests and saw my new house for the first time!  Later we all traveled to Orlando and stayed for a long relaxing Girls Only week at Disney!


We had fun at the parks and finding Hidden Mickeys everywhere!

Can you spot one in this picture of the hall carpet at the new Art of Animation resort?





Bill's brother and sister-in law, Tim and Kim came for a very welcome visit and to see what help could be offered as we worked on the house and yard. Tim is the only agile one who is comfortable up on the roof and we now have a cleanly swept patio roof and trimmed trees no longer beating upon the old shingles. Lots of laughter with the old family movies newly put on DVD's and our first boat ride since moving here!



We closed the month with a very special visit from even more family!

A few days after my return from Disney we had a great visit with our son James and his bride, Rachel!  They changed their impromptu plans to spend four days on Warped Tour and came for a visit here instead! We were delighted with the plans since we hadn't seen both of them together since the wedding last fall!  What a wonderful time we had!  It was a great way to celebrate our first year anniversary in our new house.


Now...gearing up for August!
