I'm really enjoying the scarf because it is narrow enough to wear all day without feeling too bulky. This is on the list to try next, in lime green.

I moved this table in from the garage. I'm using the baskets on the top to hold my magazines and idea books. Those got purged, too. I had been saving way too many!!!These baskets were moved from the space where I put the table from the garage. They hold tons and tons of stuff!Here's the main reason for all of the cleaning and rearranging--I wanted my Sewing Machine in my scraproom. I was not utilizing it very much in its old space. i think I'll use it much more now, for sewing on my scrap pages and for sewing projects.
And, here's my desk, ready for some serious scrappin'! If you need a reminder of how messy this space was, look back on Photo of the Day, dated 01-20-09.

Even though I had another photo that was clearer and more "portriat-like", this was my favorite. I love it because it really shows the relationship these 3 ladies (& sisters) have with each other. The women in my family share lots of laughs together! Aren't they cute?
Me, my mom, sister, aunt and cousin have been trying to plan a trip together to visit my mom and aunt's older sister, in Texas. It gets rather challenging to work around 5 different family schedules, but we finally made it happen. We surprised her last weekend and had a great time. Here's documentation of our favorite road trip pit-stop, Sonic.

This is what I saw this morning when I peeked through the window blinds. The weather man called for a 20% chance of snow today--I guess that's just about what we got, 20% of our yard was dusted with fluffy white stuff. It's strange how relaxing this scene can be if it happens on the weekend when I don't have to get out and about. But, on a school/work day--my emotions are completely different. I immediately wonder if it is safe enough for Kelsey to drive to school, or should I take her? It might be fine now, but what if it snows all day? Is there ice on the vehicles? How long will it take to get the car cleared off and warmed up? Oh no! Should I have gotten up earlier? Thankfully, dear hubby called me on his way out to let me know the roads were safe for travel. Great news! And just for the record, it only snowed for a few hours.
While shopping for a few dinner items, something shiny caught my eye. The candy aisle had been transformed into Valentine-Land. Oh my, I just couldn't resist those red, pink, and white mixed M&M's! Red is my color, and chocolate is what I'm all about. Wonder how long they'll make it at my house?

I love to-do lists! And this is where I usually keep them. On top of my Sonic cup. I tear a hole in the middle of the paper and slide it down around the straw. Sometimes the lists pile up, and that's O.K. I have water with me all the time--so that just seems to be a logical spot to keep my list, very visible--all day long. Sometimes the list gets marked off and thrown away. Sometimes the list gets moved to tomorrow's cup. In this photo, Kelsey made a grocery list for me, (she's making dinner tonight!) and my notes are on the top. An added bonus is knowing which Sonic cup belongs to me!!

OK, they didn't pull it off--but it was still the focus of our (rather, my husband and son's) day. We all watched with nervous stomachs to support our favorite team. I even gave up before the game was over and went to bed. The photo is a little fuzzy since I took the picture of our T.V. in action. Guess I could have tried to pause it, huh? I did figure out I couldn't use the flash because each angle I tried reflected off of the screen leaving a huge glow in the middle of the picture.

I forgot to take a photo before dark today, so I wanted to find something inside the house to shoot. I discovered that using the camera flash in the evening (inside the house) casts an ugly shadow on almost every shot I took. I tried taking the above photo from up above the yarn, as opposed to taking it from the side, showing the ceramic dish it was in. It was a little better, and I love all of the colors. I think I'll set my alarm tomorrow to remind me to experiment before dark!

This photo was from Friday night. I had spent the day with mom, having lunch with her, my aunt, cousin and sister. I was hoping my photo of the day would be a group picture of all of us together--it happens so rarely. My aunt didn't feel well, though, so I didn't want to ask her to pose for a pic. I remembered driving home that I still hadn't taken a picture for the day. So, when I stopped at the stop light coming into my hometown I snapped a quick picture inside the car. The flash wasn't on--but the light turned green so I didn't have time to take another shot. When I got home and checked my camera, I was pleasantly surprised. Since the flash wasn't on and the shutter stayed open so long, and of course my hand wasn't steady--this was the result. I'm sure I could never get the same result again, it was definitely a colorful accident.
