My View, Take Two

Well, the snow is gone. The ladder and AC unit are not. One out of three isn't bad! And for those who want to see how the year has progressed, look here for last month's shot out my window.

Dance Class

I took Kayla to her dance class this morning. They have safety glass in the window, so getting a good shot was very hard. But I really like this one--love how the teacher is a blur, and everything is a bit off. Love it.

Five Reasons to Smile

The five books that I got with a gift card to Barnes & Nobel--you have to love the buy 2 get 1 free deal (which is the bottom three).

Twist, Chops, and an Accident

I wanted to get a shot with the chopsticks, and I liked how they were in a perfect cross in this one.
Bonus Shot! I couldn't pick, so you get them both. This one was an accident, but sometimes, those make the best pictures!


Every kid brings their sippy cup, which gets marked clearly so we can freak out when they try to drink from someone else's cup...

Orangey Goodness

My dinner--Orange Chicken and Rice. I bungled the rice, but it tasted okay.

Will was making faces at church today--he's laughing here, really.

Standing in the Sun

The sun was out, and I was happy in my slippers.

Light, Chair

I was struck by the light coming in the window today.

I went to the library today. We have a terrace where you can sit in the spring. Even from inside, it's still a spectacular view. Hard to read when there is such beauty at hand.

Signs, Take Three: Tough Choices

So, if you only had $4, would you pick toilet paper or chocolate?

Are You Serious?

This is one of the kids in my Tuesday nursery class, Madison. All I asked for was her to smile, apparently, she wasn't taking requests.

Saving a Life

I donated blood today. And before you yell at me for grossing you out, consider this: I also took a picture WITHOUT the gauze covering the needle in my arm. I spared you--

Some of my friends laugh at my wireless mouse, but it goes everywhere my laptop goes. Saves me from wanting to rip the touchpad out!

Go Pink!

I'm crocheting a blanket for Kayla, this is some of the yarn. She likes pink. So do I.

Dog Days

This one got today's slot because of the interesting look--a result of my camera being set to indoor light and this being outside. Plus, who can resist that face?

Evening Snack

Hot chocolate and a blueberry muffin. Yep, it was almost perfect. (If the fire had been going, THEN it would have been perfect, but hey, you can't have it all!)

This is the tree outside my house (that is NOT my house in the pic, though). Only in the winter can you see how many branches it has--going every which direction. The squirrels love it because they can scurry across the house and jump into the tree.

Through a Glass Darkly

I had dinner at a favorite Mexican restaurant tonight. This was the shot taken through the glass divider. I love how some things are clear, some are doubled, some are just reflections.

Things I Keep

This is my memory board--it has comics I like, pictures of friends, and two lovely signs. One is from Miss Pottenger, the other from Miss Korn. I have awesome friends!

The World in Widescreen

This is my new laptop--and I just love this friendly face (taken by either my brother or me, I can't remember).

In Case of Fire

The sun was shining just so, and this hydrant was sitting so nicely.

That About Says It All

How cute is that?

Former Waitresses

We had Ladies Night Out for church tonight--we ate dinner at California Pizza Kitchen. I was sitting with three other former waitresses, so it was inevitable that we would pre-bus our own table. Some habits die hard.

Empty Shell

Yes, I can peel an orange in a spiral without it breaking apart. Thank you very much.

Somebody didn't clean his room up to "mom-inspection" standards. Someone didn't complete his punishment yesterday. SO somebody had to do double punishment today. Which meant copying the 10 "clean room" standards 100 times.

Shine Upon The Mountain

I came out of the mall just as the sun was sinking towards Pikes Peak. And since I had two votes for this one (over a cool flag pic, that will likely go on my other blog), here it is--for your viewing enjoyment!

Shooting From The Hip

I heard somewhere that you should "shoot from the hip"--try putting the camera at hip level and take some shots. Well, my hip is currently sitting in a booth at Panera, and this is what I got when I put the camera at that level. Notice the underside of the table in the upper left-hand corner.
