For Today -  
Outside my window...a beautiful warm, sunny Las Vegas day! 

I am's been so long since I posted anything.  Too long. 

I am thankful for...friends & family. 

I am remembering...simpler days.  Seems like it's go, go, go now. 

On my mind...Mike's new job.  He'll be leaving soon for Saudi, & be there for TWO long years!

From the learning rooms...I've been studying apertures, f/stops, shutter priority, ect....all the 'fun' things to do with taking photos, & I realize, I still have a 'lot' to learn.  

From the kitchen...just had a smoothie, & no idea what I'll come up with for dinner tonight.   

I am blue Pooh t-shirt & light grey sweat bottoms.  Still in my treadmill gear. 

I am creating...a healthy body. I enjoyed the holidays a bit too much, & the holiday eating continued until mid January. 

I am relax this afternoon/evening.  As soon as I post this, I'm off to fix a pot of tea to enjoy, as that seems to go hand in hand with relaxing.  

I am reading...too many books at the same time!  So many good freebies for the Kindle app. 

I am hoping...we get our Bella sooner than the breeder thinks.  'Bella' is a miniature Golden Teacup Persian - a sister for Tinkerbell.  We waited almost 3 years for her, so we're all very excited.    Hmmm...wonder if Tinkerbell would be excited if she were to know that a new 'baby' is coming?

I am hearing...the theme song from The Wonder Pets & Emily chattering away at me. She's planning our next trip to Disneyland & discussing it. :)  

Around the house...reminders everywhere of how very blessed we are.  

One of my favorite things...taking my iPad to bed each night to read. 

A few plans for the rest of the week...Emily's ballet class, a hair trim for me, homeschooling - that's about it.  Mike is gone till Thursday, so having a laid back week.  

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...I cannot believe Elliot is NINE!  Whenever I tell him that he can't play certain video games, he's quick to remind me "But I'm nine now!"  Sorry Elliot - doesn't matter. :)
