the one with a few personal pictures

I've been spending a lot of time with the view above. Either one the side with my feet in, or my entire body in. Just enjoying this pool as much as I can. Kalyn strung the lights up for me at the beginning of the summer. I love them and they make me happy. It's a great place to be at the end of your day. Is's Monday and I'm at The Bull Stop in Slaton working for the girls. They usually work Mondays but they are in Dallas hanging out with their Bednarz Cousins enjoying a mini-vacation together. I'm sure they are hot and sweaty and laughing. A lot! I'm jealous. I found them like this last week. (see below) Apparently, these are all the rage. Hammocks to hang out in. Summer will find a place to hang out in TCU. I'm sure many of the kids will have them. I've never cared for hammocks. Not the kind that cup you anyway. I must have had a bad experience as a child or something. But I much prefer just being on the ground on a towel or maybe sitting on a stump instead. I've been in my office editing away. Of course I always have images to work on and things to do for clients. It keeps me busy and I'm so very thankful I'm able to do long stretches of editing. So much different then last summer when I would spend an entire week on the couch with no energy and an even worse disposition. Life is good right now. I hope it stays that way. The little green bag above reminds me of Kermit the frog. Not because it's green, but because it's felt and I think he's felt like. Or his skin is. The shot below, the pattern on a card. I love it. I would love to have a wall like this somewhere in my life. Just fun really and I never get tired of looking at it like I do a lot of things. It reminds me of feathers. Random shot of the inside of Bolton's. Does anyone else go there? I call my mom when I'm waiting in line and she's so jealous that we have places like this in Texas. She says if she was younger she'd open on in California. We get our groceries sacked here at Market Street and carried out to our cars. AND they offer us drinks at our oil changes and we get to stay in our cars. Very nice. The picture below makes me smile. And I get excited! It's of a friend who was baptized this weekend. He's been baptized before, but wanted to do so in front of his kids. Great moment! And I've been praying for him and excited for him. Gosh! I'm Catholic now, but I remember when I was baptized as a kid. Such an AWESOME exciting feeling!Sweet Miss Marie in my garage before leaving for their Cousin's trip. How pretty is she?Yesterday I had the pool to myself. Felt a little guilty, really. I had finished editing 2 sessions and was uploading images and had a few minutes. Sure I could have cleaned the kitchen or folded a load of laundry, but I chose this instead. I was glad I did. Can you tell my toenails are 2 different colors? Yeah, I had forgotten about that as well until I took this photo. I have a photo of me and my sister and mom in my office. I was working on the feathered bangs. LOL The girls are driving my car so I got the bug. I don't mind the bug. She's dirty though. Geez...and check out my neck. Girl needs some sandblasting done. Chemo really wrecked some havoc, not to mention life and the sun. But oh, how lovely the sun! Happy Monday!
