Things are going well. Not quite as sparkilicious as I would like, but everyday seems to hold positive choices and actions that make me realize I am healthier than I was, and that is good. Made homemade albondigas last night, one of my favorite soups. It was from a recipe a client brought me, and it was out of this world. Absolutely incredible! I was able to share some with my boss, and am going to have the ultimate test when Tim tastes it tonight. I never know with him, somtimes it's a homerun, and others a foul ball............keeps me on my toes!

I was supposed to start water aerobics yesterday, but 1,000 things happened after work, so maybe tomorrow. It's a local class, walking distance from home, so we'll see how that goes. I used to teach water aerobics, so it will be interesting to see what this teacher does.

I had a really exciting possiblity happen yesterday. A client offered to sell me his newish Nikon camera with ALL the extras, including how-to videos and books, tripod, etc. for $300.00. I am so incredibly excited. Part of what was happening lately when I tried to print my photos is so much of my camera is out of date, including the memory card. It is very expensive to get it all in order, and at best, my shots will only look really good at 8X10 or smaller, which is really not what I want to do. Not that I want to blow up all of my shots, but I'd like to atleast be able to go to 11x16 comfortably, whithout losing quality. So, looks like my desires may be fufilled soon. He is going to bring it by and let me try it out, and also will let me make payments! What a great surprise for me, I'm so excited and humbled by this opportunity.

Here's a few of my recent shots taken from my cell phone!! I can't blow these up with any quality, but it is still fun to play around.

Taken in Oregon this winter.

Fun little play with road rainbow

First blooms of spring, taken at my apartment complex

Fire flower!!

I think I have the eye for compostion, it's just time to nail down the quality with better equipment, education and application. I've loved photography since I was 15, and am always happier when I am taking pics of life around me.

Cheers to us, now and always!!

    Such lovely pictures! Water aerobics sounds fun; I did that years ago and it really helped the fat disappear fairly quickly. You'll have to let us know what you think of the class.
