OMG!!!

Oh my gosh...it's Friday...already...

What a week. Here is a photo montage of some of my week...


Janine wrote a wonderful reflection for the Feminist Theology blog. I've managed this blog for about 6 months, it is cosponsored by the Office of Women's Ministry through the Episcopal Church. You can read Janine's reflection here.

Cactus are still blooming - the desert is soooo beautiful.

The road runners were out yesterday running around my front yard trying to catch dinner...I think they managed to get about five of the baby quail (since they run through my yard and today there are about five fewer babies...sigh...sad...)...


my daughter and Ryan heading off to the black tie ball where he received several medals in honor of his time served in combat while deployed for 16 months to Afghanistan. They make a nice couple, don't you think? Oh, and then add to that, Ryan injured himself jumping out of a plane Thursday morning (he's 82nd airborne) and had to go to the hospital - has a concussion...and my daughter came home from the trip to NC for the ball with a sinus and ear infection...


And here are my god-daughters...(Baby Z and Little L)...5 months old today...remember that snowy night I spent in the hospital helping them be born? Hard to believe that five months later they are so beautiful and healthy and I live 1800 miles away...

sit by that pool for awhile and jsut "be"... i'd bring the pitcher of something light & refreshing but it might slosh around in the car tooo much on the drive. you sit and relax. i'm going to scrub the shower & pretend in my mind i'm sitting at the pool with you sipping something...
