traveling   Leave a comment


so while I have plans to go out west in September I am still unsure weather I will take the full two weeks  and drive through Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado or fly to Arizona and just stay there.
Ideally I would like to do the driving because I love Utah and want to see it again.
But in all honesty I would like to see Wyoming and Montana as well.
I just can’t do it all in two weeks time.
I do know that.
plus I am looking at fourteen nights at hotels?
food for fourteen plus days?
gas for all that time?
it just seems rather expensive when I think about it all

maybe I will just fly to Arizona for the week and stay  home the other week?
decisions decisions

Choices   Leave a comment

I want to be thinner and healthier.
I want it very much.

yet every day, I sabotage myself and eat things I know aren’t good for me and end up feeling fat and bloated and definitely not eating as I should.

I make this choice every day

what is wrong with me?
Why do I want something but yet don’t do it?
I don’t understand myself at all.

surely there is something in me that makes me sabotage myself all of the time?
Any ideas anyone?

I detest the fat person I am

here I am again   Leave a comment

here I am back at work and feeling achy and extremely tired already and I have only been here about 90 minutes

I hate being sick

not that anyone loves it by any means, I just hate how it feels like I am this weak little thing that can hardly control my own body and emotions because I feel so yuck.

not a good feeling at all.

but I have had enough of doing nothing at home but laying there and flipping the channels on the TV.

I did watch a couple of movies though

Yesterday I watched “The Hours” based on Virginia Woolf.
And Tuesday I watched “We need to talk about Kevin”

which I have to say was exceptionally done and the whole context bothered me greatly.
I had a hard time going to sleep that night because the evil in the little boy named Kevin, was hard for me to take

I highly recommend the movie to everyone though, it isn’t a child’s movie but it definitely makes a person think about things.

sick of being sick   Leave a comment

I have been ill since last Saturday night.

this is no fun at all.

with my cough, my sore throat, and feeling weak and feeling like I could faint at any moment, this has not been a fun week

to top it off I have a very frog filled throat.

I can hardly talk.

I’m off work but do plan on going back tomorrow.

I am slowly feeling better every day, but still feel weak.

a whole lot of nothing to say   Leave a comment

I use to make a point of writing ten blogs a day

now I find myself searching for things to write about

I love pictures of beautiful things and I tend to let a picture pick my topic quite a bit of the time anymore


I could talk about my love of roses, but I know I have done that a time or two

I could talk about my love for Thomas Kincaid’s work, but I have written about that as well


I love the ocean


and the mountains

300px-oceanranger but everyone who reads me know these things as well

My heart and soul belong to God and my family and I can only imagine that people get tired of reading those things as well.

so I am fresh out of what to write about.
Maybe I will take a break for a while.

black and white   1 comment


I’m not much for black and white photos

I love vibrant colors, but occasionally I can see the need for a black and white photo

dark-day-of-winter of course the dark days of winter can be black and white and gray


I am just the kind of person who likes color in my day

winter is back   Leave a comment


winter is back with a vengeance and it sounds like we are going to have another snow storm here in about 32 hours.

makes me wonder if there will be school on Friday?
Radio said this morning we could get 3 to 8 inches.

I was hoping winter was over with.

Not sure why as it is only February, but those nice warm days like we had on Monday, when it was 50 degrees, makes me think, winter should be gone and spring should be here.

just wishful hoping I guess.

it cost nothing   Leave a comment


it costs nothing to be nice and polite.

I think parents these days have forgotten to teach their children this little piece of knowledge.

everyone is out for themselves and can’t take the time to be nice…..

oh don’t get me wrong, once in a while I see it, but not nearly as often as I should.
