June 23st, 2009

Outside my window... The black clouds are rolling in on 60 mph winds.

I am thinking... how much I love my little Sadie-muffin who is curled up beside me on the couch.

I am thankful for... health insurance.

From the kitchen... i can still smell the chicken la-las we had for dinner.

I am wearing... Tom's old red t-shirt and blue shorts (i came in soaking wet from the monsoon outside and changed into the first thing that was close).

I am creating... a video from the wedding photos i shot on saturday and post processing the engagement photos i took sunday.

I am going...to do very little the rest of the evening.

I am reading... a Lisa Gardner book on my kindle. for the life of me i can't remember the name.

I am hoping... that i can get back and forth from my car to my desk successfully tomorrow.

I am hearing... Clint Eastwood in Gran Torino. I love Netflix!

Around the house... there are lots of things that need to be done yet here i sit....

One of my favorite things... my canon of course!

A few plans for the rest of the week... Clean up the house and yard to get ready for the wedding on Saturday. Take Waverly to the orthodontist as she has lost so many teeth recently that her retainer no longer fits. Go see my dear friend Lisa Saturday morning so that she can work her magic.

Camping weekend

It was a rather short camping weekend for the kids & I. We drove up to Wapsipinicon State Park after work on Friday. It rained and rained and rained all the way up there. And it continued to rain until about 7am on Saturday morning. Thankfully though it stopped and stayed rather cool all day Saturday. We had a great time with some of the folks from Tom's work. This is my new friend Elaine.

and her dog Sunny.

and my kids still glued to the video games even out in the great outdoors.

Unphotographable - Psychiatric care

This is a photo I did not take. Of a woman driving into the parking lot of a psychiatrist office. Her car windows were rolled down and she was talking, out loud, to herself, rehearsing the spiel she was going to give to the doctor to convince him she wasn’t crazy.

Digital Scrapbooking

I'm really enjoying digital scrapbooking. I've gotten to a point where I can create my own templates too! It's just so easy and I don't have a lot of free time these days (ok that's like the understatement of the year) so if it can be done quickly then I can do it!
