She's sporting the flower clip I gave mom with her year membership to red butte gardens. I love my niece.

My sister's new house

I LOVE the sponged lower half of the wall - the top half is wall paper - tiny yellow flowes. The floor is vynl (sp?) made to look like bricks.

The bathroom was pink. The cupboard doors have rose wall paper panels.

the garage had a door plastered in decals implying the decorator was a fan of the outdoors.

This home is in wellsville, ut - just outside of logan.


I love leaves. I love impressions of leaves. I guess it's impossible for concrete to dry untouched when surrounded by so much nature! I only wish it showed better - there were so many impressions - all different.

okay, the holidays are a wonderful season. there's nothing more fun than walking into your room and finding presents. unfortunately, finding a plate full of homemade candy when you still haven't had breakfast is probably not a good thing. now i don't want to eat my healthy breakfast. i've already finished the fudge. next comes caramels!

I tried to photograph the snow encrusted foliage this morning. It didn't work. Driving and photograhinng isn't always easy. But trust me - it was beautiful. I was heading to the gym and I was just grateful to live in a world of beauty. Luckily the snow wasn't sticking to the roads.

argh and double argh!

my stinking school's internet service now blocks blogger. just when i was recommitting myself to blogging i found i can't do it at my convenience. i have to wait until i'm at home using super slow dial up internet. my life is so sad! anyway, just as a warning that i may be less diligent in my blogging and in my commenting. so sad.

this morning while reading the ny times i debated letting my blog die. i never came to a decision. then i came across a photo taken a couple years ago of an acccident i had with squash. i decided the photo should be shared. i guess the blog lives another day. don't microwave squash without poking some holes in it first for steam to escape.
