Go, dog, go! brings me back to childhood

I remember reading this with my mom and sister. Makes me remember times when things weren't so stressful and you could play all day!

I could eat nothing but japanese food for a year

Lunch @ Dake Sushi

I love sushi and salad with the ginger dressing and the soups...I could go on and on...besides, it might help with weight loss...interesting theory to test. Anyone up for it?

I got a bit of nature on me!

I was sitting on my deck this afternoon watching my cute kitties clean themselves and act tired and enjoying the cool breeze and dogs barking when suddenly I had nature on me!  That's right, I enjoy watching the outdoors- just keep the bugs away! I hate things that fly at me and jump! Just because I am sitting here enjoying the outdoors is not an invite for spiders to jump on me, I mean hey! I let you live- I didn't stomp you into the deck and how do you repay me? By jumping on me and causing almost cardiac arrest!? Not cool! Get me outta this stinking fresh air!

My song about Paris

I love Paris, oh why, oh why do I love Paris?

I have always loved ballet. When I was a young girl I thought I wanted to learn ballet...until I found out you stood on your toes on a block of wood...the shoes are so cute though! Reinforces my great grandmother's line, "Beauty hurts." Is it worth it?

Canon, please

I am lusting for lighting equipment and lenses for photography at the moment. I am going to take 10 year anniversary pictures for some friends and wedding pics for another couple and desperately need it...

Working with computers is sometimes like working with an irrational person.  I mean, why can't I delete documents that are in my documents and I have full permissions to?  Makes no sense.  They are my documents!  Who else besides me would want to delete them?  I admit I am a bit OCD and require all my documents and folders to be in order at all times, but is that asking too much?  I am willing to take the time to make it happen, if the computer would just cooperate.  Technology is great!

Mobile Post

This is a test of the mobile blogging system. Had this been an actual blog it would have been followed by pictures. This is only a test.

My first job: childcare

Well, you see, it all started when my mom had to start working full time...I was already home schooled so I 'got' to stay home and watch my younger brother and sister... and cook, clean, do the laundry and dishes...and then my aunt would have me babysit her 3 kids a lot as well. I made like $2-$5/hr while working for my aunt and was happy to have it! I was picked up and dropped off because I wasn't old enough to have a DL yet.
I wouldn't say that job was any easier than the one I have today. It was stressful, I mean you try keeping 3 kids and 2 dogs in order for an entire day while cooking and cleaning (good luck) and see how you fare! It isn't sitting around eating chocolates and watching soap operas! ...that is probably why I don't have kids to this day...

I Found My Thrill...

Spring Time, originally uploaded by oshngrl.

...(sung to the tune of Blueberry Hill by Fats Domino)...

I found my thrill on Daffodil Hill
On Daffodil Hill where I found you
The moon stood still on Daffodil Hill
And lingered till my dreams came true

The wind in the willow played
Love's sweet melody
But all of those vows we made
Were never to be

Tho' we're apart you're part of me still
For you were my thrill on Daffodil Hill

The wind in the willow played
Love's sweet melody
But all of those vows we made
Were never to be

Tho' we're apart you're part of me still
For you were my thrill on Daffodil Hill

Some flowers I took pictures of at Garvan Gardens. I have no idea what they are, but I like 'em!

In defense of my vice: Etsy

Etsy Visualization: All Etsy Members with Avatars August 2005 by jared

It all started when my husband said, "Hey, I think you would really like Etsy," and it has continued to grow into an addiction. I have to log on daily to see what is new and what favorite was purchased by someone else so I can be upset. I wouldn't quit unless I was always broke and had no money- but even then it is fun to browse.

I'll spend my golden years in San Diego, CA

San Diego has perfect weather year round, there are tons of awesome things to do there, you are close to La Jolla.

You know, I really like the idea of a blog, but hardly ever find the time to do anything with it. I follow so many blogs by other people and I love them! They are more technically inclined than I am I think because they have such great pages and links! Ah well.
