So, I’ve been in a creative funk for a while now, and I’m just starting to come out of it. One of the first things I notice when I start feeling creative again is that I’m hungry for color and starved for texture. I found myself taking pictures of colors and textures, and these are the most interesting in my opinion:

We had a nice break in the weather here for a few days, so I took the kidlets to the park to play. It’s finally getting warm enough to go outside, and they seemed to really enjoy the play time! 🙂

As you know, we’ve been dealing with the flu here in Lovey-dovey-land, CO. We’re finally starting to feel better, so my daughter Becca and I decided to do a girl’s afternoon out. We started at Starbuck’s, where we had some coffee (me) and a “cake pop” (Becca). From there, we went to Macy’s, where Becca was lucky enough to get a “makeover” (a little lip gloss, eye shadow and blush) courtesy of the Estee Lauder counter – they’re wonderful people there! 🙂 She was quick to remind me that, “we girls have to moisturize, Mama” – my little girly-girl! (She picks up on this beauty stuff like a sponge – I don’t know where she gets it, because I hardly wear makeup at all!)

Don't forget to say the important things to the people you care about!

I’ve been reading a book by Patti Digh, called “What I wish for you” – newly released. It reminded me that it’s so important to tell the people we care about how we feel – they need to hear it and we need to say it. It’s never too late, and it’s always appropriate. So go ahead, and say it – it’s always worth it.


This is the cough medicine (right picture). This is my brain on that cough medicine (left picture). Yeah, it’s that much fun…

Tired me

Sorry to punt on the entry tonight…I think I’m coming down with the flu that everyone else has here. Lucky me…

Tamiflu - 3/5 of our family is on it right now...

The flu has hit our family hard this year…probably our fault because we didn’t get flu shots. :/ Anyway, most of us are on Tamiflu. Somehow I seem to be the only one who hasn’t gotten sick. Fingers crossed, folks – I can’t afford to get sick!

One of my local Starbuck's...great place to think and write!

All I have to say is, “Aaaaaahhhhh…” 🙂 Thanks Matt for making it possible! 🙂

Starbuck's coffee and a bagel with cream cheese - just what I need!

Three out of three kids down with the flu, hubby sick with something similar, and I’m the only one well. Yeah, I could use a Starbuck’s breakfast right about now…

I can't wait for Spring and flowers again!

The little people got me flowers for V-day, and they’ve lasted a long time! Daisies make me really happy, and these came from a loving family. 🙂 Hurry up spring!!
