Mostly from John Maxwell, Craig Jutila, Mother Teresa, and Prudent Advice (Jaime Morrison Curtis)


Meet Elephante #2

Once upon a time Peter and I once got a little blue elephant from an Indian food restaurant.  He was our little guy and we loved him. But then he got stuck in lighter thingy in a car and was killed ;(
BUT as fate would have it, all the sudden we found a new one-- EXACTLY  the same.

Now begins the adventures of Elephant #2! 

last night I put him on Peter's coffee maker

Peter then put him on my bread for toast

went up one of the hills
surrounding the valley we
live in. Here are some snapshots

Ahoy Captain, some treasure!

Inspiration... Ideas!

Who doesn't need that?
This is my inspiration and idea board going in my office. I am also going to put quotes on it about leadership and of course the man- Jesus!

My dear camera is getting so old to the point that he just can't do what he use to so... my photos are here and there.  I apologize. Poor guy.

To Cut or Not to Cut

that is the question.

although I do adore long hair, lately I have just about had it! That's right curls on my head, you have not been behaving well, and now I am letting the whole world know about your rebellion.

Back to the blog this is my hair now...
forgive me when I am act strange in front of a camera

This has been my hair in the past short...

short and curly
short and straight
Reasons to not cut:
I can grow it out just a little bit more and donate it (which is what I have done the past 2 or 3 times),
I can ponytail it,
 it takes a long time to get it long... maybe why they call it long hair

Reasons to cut it:
Easier to deal with in the morning
Less hair to get in a mess
Less wet hair on my back
Less resentment for the outright rude locks!
-okay some of these are silly...

What do you think?
Sorry for all the pictures of myself... I hope I am not that vain...

Sick Day...

Things I wish I could do right now:

Is play games... but with no one else sick and my head becoming more and more fuzzy there is not much hope for game playing today.

 What do you do when you are sick? Leave  a comment!

A Little Bit of Paint and Elbow Grease

I needed some black frames, but they only had brown ones at the dollar store.

A little bit of paint fixed the problem!
