Happy Halloween

i took these pictures a couple of weeks ago. i was getting into my truck to leave for work and i had this spider web connecting from my side mirror to the truck door. it was so cool with the drops of water on it so i ran back into the house and got the camera so that i could capture the web. i think that the web hung on for about 2 weeks or so. tough thing.

Three Things Thrusday

the younger years........

1. in the 6th grade i wanted my hair cut short so my mom took me to get it cut. it was the wedge look, kind of the bowl on top of the head and cut around it look, but hey that's what i wanted. i seemed to like it until one day the ice cream man came down our street and my sister and i went running out to the truck. the ice cream man then proceeded to ask me, "what would you like son?" it was treeible. i ran in the house crying.

2. when i was little and would have a weggie my dad would ask me if i was going to the show. huh!?! some of you ask. well i thought the same thing. he'd respond because you're picking your seat. ;)

3. my sister and i use to swim in these big tin barrels in the summer. in fact i think mine was actually a brolier and my sisters was one of those tins you would bob for apples in. we wanted a swimming pool real bad.

Cold and Colorful Rain

i was greeted on my drive home with large, cold rain drops and the most beautiful rain storm ever. yellows, reds, browns, purples, oranges. our amazing fall colors showering my truck as i drove home from work. how fun it would have been to stand in the arangement of colored leaves as they showered down on me.

every good story needs characters of course, character building, a hero maybe a heroine, a plot, conflict, a villan/antagonist, and the occasional happy ending (which are usually my favorites). i've just finished the best trilogy ever (no not Lord of the Rings) and some may disagree with me on this but it's an amazing story of devotion, selflessness, faithfulness, unconditional love, humbleness, beauty, grace, mercy and forgiveness. Leana the picture of grace and devotion, Rose beauty and love, James/Jamie humbleness and forgiveness. i cannot recall reading a story where i've had such mixed feelings about the characters. feeling angry at them in one chapter and wanting to be so like them in the next. Leana's character shows the perfect picture of how God love us. unconditionally and with a devotion that is unwavering. these stories are a must read by all. based off the story of Leah, Rachel, and Jacob, in the Bible, Thorn In My Heart, Fair Is The Rose, and Whence Came a Prince by Liz Curtis Higgs are exceptional. i hope you one day enjoy the journey of these dear characters.

Stuff Portrait Friday...SHOES

i must say that this SPF was one of the hardest because i love shoes. it was tough picking my ugliest pair. in fact my ugliest pair was at my parents house and she asked me just the other weekend if she could throw them out. they were a pair of dyed shoes that i wore in a wedding. so in the end here are all my shoes and the pair that my husband least likes. he says that they look like they have tires on the sole and that i am wearing treads. i like them though.

Destruction and Devastation

this picture is the street that i grew up on and all the debris from the neighbor's houses.

earlier this week my mom sent me these pictures of the destruction that katrina made for our neighborhood. all i could do was cry when i saw them. hearing how terrible things are there and seeing it are two different things.

I'm Here

for the past couple of days creating a blog is something that i've been thinking about. with the encouragement from a good friend who describes blogs as "lots of fun" i've decided to join the circle.
