It’s Friday!

It is a cloudy, rainy day today.  But it is Friday, which makes it so much better! 

We just bought tickets for Punta Cana (Dominican Rebpublic), I CAN NOT WAIT to go there!  The beaches look magnificent and after about seven months of winter, I truly need a break!  I’ll spend every moment in the sun, for a full, entire, wholesome week!  Here’s the swimming suit I ordered today.  Dear Lord, I need to quickly loose about 25 lb to fit into this:

Of course I am not yet capable of taking a portrait where I focus on very close subjects, blurring everything else ON PURPOSE.  I keep screwing my settings everyday.  This one does have some blur, all in the wrong places.dsc02949

Gin & Tonic

Do people still drink Gin & Tonic?   Here’s the inexpensive version I treat myself with sometimes, at home:

I wouldn’t normally do this, but the post I copied below really rang a bell.  It is from this blog: The Sneeze – Half zine.  Half blog.  Half not good with fractions, found at http://www.thesneeze.com/

“A long time ago when my wife was my girlfriend and we were LIVING IN SIN, a tradition was born. I’d like to now share it with you all.

I came home from work one day and found her in front of the computer. I said “Hello,” and she barely grunted back. I don’t even think she looked up.

Half-jokingly I responded, “Okay, we’re gonna try this again.” I walked out the front door and came back in a few moments later…

“STEVIE’S HOME, STEVIE’S HOME!!! YAY!!!” was the new over-the-top cheer I was greeted with. It was accompanied by a hug and kisses. And I loved it.

What began as a joke quickly became an ongoing practice that continues to this day in our house: The person who is home first must make a small fuss when the other person gets there.

Does it sound silly? Yes. Do I promise that it will set the tone for a nicer evening just about every time you do it? Yes.

The world is full of douchebags, guys. Take 3 seconds out of your precious day to make a fuss over each other. Do it like you mean it. Do it as a goof. Just do it a lot.

I promise you’ll be glad you did.”

Oh, the photo is not from the blog…Just my personal touch.

Had fun this weekend!

For the first time in my life I went snowmobiling (does such word exist?).  Look at my face and it’ll tell you lots about my excitement



Some photos that I like, although they are in desperate need of photoshoping (I can not yet balance the white/light):
