24th Fireworks. Two days late, mind you.

Our family is notorious for being late, and we always live up to that title! We bought fireworks weeks ago for the 24th (maybe even the 4th?) and didn't do them until tonight. All the fireworks were short lived and lame except the sparklers. So I got most of the pictures from those! i finally figured out the settings on my camera to get a good sparkler trail, so have a look see!




This amazingness is my handy-work, just so you know :)

Blogger in draft!!!! HOLY LOVE!!!

If you go to  www.draft.blogger.com you can see what features are in the works for blogger. I've been browsing through them and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!!! My number one favorite thing is that you can upload endless photos ALL AT ONCE!!! This is the one feature that's kept me from doing big fun picture filled posts. No more!

Thank you blogger, you have just made my life SO much easier!

The "IF's" of me

I've been working on cleaning my room since I got home from work. I thought I'd give myself a break. The ankle is fat and sore, so I might as well do something while I sit. (For those of you who didn't know, no, I didn't gain a bunch of weight in my ankle, I strained it playing ultimate frisbee)
If I were a month I’d be September

If I were a day I’d be Saturday.

If I were a time of day I’d be 9pm, that's when I ":wake up" and get things done. Can you say night owl?

If I were a font I’d be something super fancy, cursive and calligraphic.

If I were a sea animal I’d be a...um...I really have no idea.

If I were a direction I’d be North Such a better direction to travel than the others.

If I were a piece of furniture I’d be a window seat covered in blankets and good books.

If I were a liquid I’d be V8.

If I were a gemstone I’d be a Diamond.

If I were a tree I’d be a Japanese Maple.

If I were a tool I’d be a Pen.

If I were a flower I’d be a Dahlia or Sunflower.

If I were a musical instrument I’d be a VIOLA!!!!

If I were a color I’d be pastel pink.

If I were an emotion I’d be love.

If I were an element I'd be sodium

If I were a car I’d be a Volkswagon Passat, tan leather seats and white exterior.

If I were a food I’d be a Hot cheetos.

If I were a pair of shoes I’d be Three inch black peep toe heels.

Roasted Rebecca

I live in an unfinished room that has cement walls.  It's SO hot at night and I avoid being in my room at all costs during the day. What it all sums up to, is that I essentially sleep in an oven. That's some food for thought. :] Only apply that pun if you feel the need.

Today the garden is watered, my hair is washed, I have some shopping to do, work to go to, possibly a wedding reception of a complete stranger, and for the third day in a row, I had a hot dog for breakfast.

Technically not breakfast, because I don't eat breakfast (makes me sick to my stomach to eat early for some reason), but still the first meal of my day.  Though, I did have corn this morning to try and be on the healthy side.

I'm seriously considering taking a picture of my room and showing you it's disaster-ness. I can honestly say my room has never gotten this bad. I have about 5 things to sell that are huge and take up space (One being a wedding dress that Rachel and I found at the D.I. in pristine condition. Yeah, HUGE), unfinished "projects" that will take forever to un-bury, a mountain of clothes that I just can't remember which was the clean "to fold" pile and which was the dirty pile. One fell over onto the other. But per my previous note, I stay out of my room because it's so hot. So really, it's my dad's fault my room is a mess. His fault because my room isn't finished. Well, not really, but I have to slip the blame somewhere.

Work calleth, and I must heed that call. Eat a popsicle and keep cool friends. Stay happy :)

Raccoon Dog

Ace, being the devil that he is, rolled in a pile of dirt while I was in the garden. I think he does it because he knows he'll get to play with the water as I hose him down.



More flower pictures from my garden, enjoy!

My garden is my refuge






The Wolfgang (woof)


Randy's Band "The Wolfgang" played this week at Magna Music in the Park.  I think this was one of their best performances. Rachel agrees with me too.  I think it's been a year or so since I heard them last.  

Good job guys!
