End of the Challenge

I had to finish my poems today, and as you can see, it took some chocolate to get done, but I finished. Almost forgot to take a photo, but I got the poems done!

My View, Take Four

Notice anything missing? Yep, both ladder and AC unit have moved, well, I moved them. Today. I was tired of seeing them, and now that the weather is warming up (notice the green!) I'll have my window open more.

Pushing Spring

The tree out front is blossoming--I know I keep taking shots of it, but maybe at the end of the year, we'll be able to see how it progressed through all the seasons. And "my view" will be coming tomorrow--I ran out of daylight today!

Pretty Pots in a Row

Dara's family has a cool old iron stove in the corner, surrounded by brick walls. Her mom decorates with a lot of copper pots. These ones just looked so happy.

See, I'm more than an eye and feet--I have a whole face!

What a Girl Wants

That is what was left of the chocolate-covered strawberry she had.

Could every much hangs on those three words.

In This Economy

We do what we have to do to make a buck--or .40 at least! This is a working soda machine that sits on some person's driveway down the street from a friend of mine. It's so lovely and random, it deserved a spot in this project.

Good Cooking

My dinner--pasta, chicken, peas--it was simple, but good.

Birthday Goodies

I got new shoes. Now to break them in.

Carnival Time

There is a spot in town where a carnival shows up every so often. The first warm day we get this month and they are here. I used the night setting to create the fun blurs.

He's from Africa, and I sorta like him.

Spring Dump

Gotta love springtime in the Rockies--lots of wet snow!

Pampering Me

My feet aren't used to long hours--but I had some fun foot soak (Tranquil Mint!) and thought I'd treat myself--it was lovely.

Bathed in Sunlight

The lilac bushes have started their yearly display--and it turns out, I'm allergic to them--but they are so pretty, I don't care!

A Corner of My Room

I love the paint on my walls, the paint on the canvas, and having pictures of friends all around me. Yes, my room is purple.

Afternoon Beauty

I can't help it--Colorado has amazing skies :P

Miss Pottenger has a lovely array of jewelery. Complete with shadows.

Late Night Snack

I sometimes wonder how something so small can pack so much taste--but these petite quiche do it well.

Good Friday

We held our first ever Good Friday service at PRC tonight. The first half hour was a mixture of music and scripture reading. The second half was time to move to stations where you could through various mediums. I organized the creative room, where we drew, molded, colored, and wrote. One of the other stations was this cross, where you could nail "your sins"--it was rather haunting to hear the sound of pounding nails--

My good friend Dianna posted a pic of the "after" shot on her blog.

Will and Kayla helped Shelly pick out my birthday present. Her name is Wisdom, and they liked her because she is reading, and because she has brown hair, just like me. I love it! Thanks Myers!

Night Light

The moon was full tonight, and with the help of my "night scene" setting, I was able to get it and the night cityscape.

America's Past-Time

It's that time of year, but with Jake playing in Kansas this year, I may not get any closer to baseball than this piece of art. And I'm okay with that.

Cherry on Top

I went to Panera, where I didn't get a lot done, but I did enjoy the no-calorie food (i.e. I didn't eat it!).

Not an Average Sunday

I haven't worked at the mall on a Sunday for almost a year. But with my promotion, I'll have to work a few Sunday's a month. I went this morning to train. On my way to church, I snapped this shot of the mall sign and Pikes Peak.

Flickering Liquid

This is my favorite smell. And it's pretty, too.

A Sad Collection

I needed a refill and inspiration--yes, that is an empty page, prepped for my sestina.

Sallow and Plum

This is my eye a week after my fall. The entire eyelid has gone a lovely shade of yellow, with that purple spot in the middle.

Movie Night

Dara and I went to see Watchmen. We were there a bit early, and the theater was pretty empty. We thought we might be by ourselves, but several guys and one couple showed up. Note to self--seeing "guy" movies on a weeknight might be a good way to meet guys :P
