Loving the Snow

I have been hating winter and longing for spring,
but yesterday I went up the canyon with my cousin,
and we went snowshoeing.
It reconciled me to winter.
Quite a bit of pretty new snow,
and a lovely setting to enjoy it in.

Watch out for the Snake

When I was in Italy I bought some pottery decorations,
including one that says 'watch out for snakes' in Italian.
I hung them in my kitchen,
so then I had to bring the snake into the kitchen.
Here she is in the fruit bowl.
I love to watch out for my snake!

Mystery vegetable

I don't know what this stuff is.
It came with my organic Bountiful Baskets order.
It is thicker than lettuce,
spicier than cabbage,
too strong for salads.
I expect it will probably taste pretty good
if I saute it in a little olive oil and garlic...

Saturday Hotcakes

Dad makes hotcakes every Saturday morning.
They are really great...
it is a wonderful tradition.

Morning Commute

I had to come on to campus earlier than normal for a Friday,
and I was feeling grumpy as I drove,
but this sight (photographed at a red light stop)
was a good payoff for the inconvenience.
I love Mt. Timpanogos!


This is my new jump drive.
I think it is absolutely adorable.
The store had Looney Tunes characters, too,
but no coyote.
So I got this nice clownfish instead!
(The head is a cap that comes off,
and can be secured to the chain with the tag,
so it isn't lost.)

Cookie Song

Chocolate chip cookies, ya gotta have more,
You can bake them in the oven, or buy them at the store,
But whatever you do, have them ready at your door,
And I'll love you 'til I die!

Y Mountain Summer View

And finally I learned how to merge all my panoramic multiple shots!

Photoshop Invitations

Today I learned how to make invitations in photoshop.
I admit this is completely 70's cheesy,
but I had fun with it anyway...
