I don't know what I would do if I didn't have music in my life.

I'm slowly but surely getting back on my treadmill after another too-long hiatus (and I do mean slowly). And no I'm never actually this happy when I'm getting set to start but I had to look good for the picture. ;)

Keeping otherwise idle hands busy while watching TV.

Sunday, January 27, 2013


A lazy Sunday = a very rare supper in front of the TV. The feature presentation was 'The Mighty Ducks.'

The girls brought me breakfast in bed today. Just because. (Which consisted of toast with cheese whiz and dry mini wheats - a favorite combo of mine - and half a banana.) My mama heart swooned.

This morning's beautiful sun dog (no photo editing needed here).

Getting ready to go to bed with socks on for the second night in a row. It's just too cold these days and my feet literally turn into icicles.

Wednesday, January 23, 2013


It may be colder than cold these days...but at least the daylight hours are slowly getting longer. 5:15pm and far from pitch black!! That's something to celebrate!

I hate the chore but I love the final result. Well...almost still needs to be put away!

Back from walking the girls to the bus stop this morning in the deep freeze (aka -42*C).

I spent some time tickling the ol' ivories this afternoon.

My needle-fearing daughter after her first ever blood test this morning. So proud of her for going through with it. (She also had an x-ray on her knee - this blood work was to check for inflammation - after not being able to walk on it properly for a few days. No known injury, it just suddenly started bothering her...)

While catching up on Ellen episodes today, I discovered Timothy Olyphant who I had never heard of before. Man, he was hilarious!

Waiting at the dentist's office for the results of my wisdom tooth x-ray.

Eating chocolate in bed...because I can (and because I've been feeling a bit sorry for myself this week).

Friday, January 11, 2013


You know you need to see the dentist when...

Malia would live in these footsie PJ's if we let her!

Trying to rest up this afternoon. This cold/cough is kicking my butt!

At worship team practice: "And if our God is for us, then who could ever stop us. And if our God is with us, then what could stand against."

Waiting on the side of the road to be rescued after two flat tires.
