A Day Out

Today was a much needed day of relaxation. The weather was absolutely perfect...sunny and highs in the mid 70's. Doesn't get much better than that!!!

Bokeh Anyone?

I love photographing in the soft, early morning light! Add in a beautiful camellia and this is the result!



Christmas Time Is Coming


Dear Santa,

I promise I’ve been a VERY good girl this year.  Ok…a MOSTLY good girl!  Will you please bring me a new toy or 2?  You know the ones I like.  They have SQUEEKIES in them!!!  And how ‘bout a few YUMMY treats too.  I’ve been watching my girlish figure, but a girl can splurge every once in a while.  I will be sure to leave you a tasty treat and some carrots for your reindeer.




  1. I feel like being lazy and wish I could ignore these study notes on Gerontology.
  2. Mother Nature is having another “hot flash”.  I really wish she would make up her mind!!
  3. I put up my Christmas tree:)
  4. I should be doing laundry, but once again laziness is winning.  There’s always tomorrow, right???
  5. I’m learning to love Lightroom.  We’ve previously had a love/hate relationship!
  6. I’m enjoying my new TV…Santa made an early visit to me yesterday!!!
  7. The weather is looking nasty and the wind is wicked!

How’s your day???



Don’t Faint…

I actually had a chance to peek into the blog world! Life has continued to be a little on the crazy side.  I take that back…A LOT on the crazy side.  So here are the fast and furious facts of my life as of lately:

  • Working 32hrs in 2 days isn’t recommended for anyone’s sanity! Sure we’ve all wished for a work week that is only 2 days and a 5 day weekend.  But in reality…DON’T TRY IT!!!
  • There are only 5 weeks left in the semester!
  • I have a love/hate relationship with Microbiology.
  • I find out in a month if I make the cut for the RN program…waiting is KILLER!!!
  • Summer is slipping away…sigh.
  • There are actually a few leaves that have turned shades of color instead of the typical fall brown typically seen around here!
  • I miss blogging and reading all of my favorite blogs!!!

And I even had the chance to get the camera out today! Here one of my favorite shots from today :)
