I just feel like I don't have enough time in the day to do all the things I want or need to do. I should be finishing up my taxes right now, but I'm watching Chopped All-Stars and playing with pictures and blogging instead. I made a resolution as of April 1st that I will spend more time doing things that I need to get done to take care of myself and my family. I tend to get 150% involved at work and then never take care of the things I need to do...I had a folder sitting next to my computer for three weeks reminding me to call the Bedford Springs to sort out the details of a big party we're having in April. My mom was getting so irritated with me for not calling them that I was afraid to call her because I didn't have any new progress to report. Heck, I still have to call the florist and I know I have to do that before I even try to call Ma or she'll kick my ass. I told her that I'd like to spend a day hanging out with her and shopping to get her a new dress for the party in return for all the work she's done on it...she let me know that she didn't think we'd find anything expensive enough! haaaaaaaaaaaa I love you, ma!!
Anyway, I spent a great weekend with Curt and we took a hike on the Noland Trail which is a local park here in Newport News. I'm mentioning this because I took my camera along. Not only did I get some good pics, but I could randomly stop and pretend to see some need pattern in bark just so I could catch my breath and stretch a bit. Curt thought I was being all artsy and I'm going to let him keep thinking that instead of knowing the truth that I was just plain tired.
My bark pics actually came out pretty cool, but the shot I like best is this one....
For my bead friends out there...this is going to be part of my inspiration for the Art Bead Scene Monthly challenge that has a lovely Asian-inspired bamboo feeling.
As we wended our way out of the woods, we finally saw some trees with blossoms. A little dogwood flower has some fun little purple tips. So pretty! The best part about this picture is that I had Curt trying to hold the branch still so the wind wouldn't move it so much.
He's such a good assistant.
I'm going to grab another beer as this cooking show finishes up and the cat snores next to me. I have another day of crazy taskers ahead of me tomorrow and one of my friends from the office has challenged me to try "yogafusion" class during lunch. If I end up paralyzed you may not hear from me tomorrow.
