something to be proud of

this is a picture of my team the "Spicy Italians" and we just completed the 60 km Weekend to End Breast Cancer! so proud of everyone! We raised over $11,000.00 as a team and thank all of the friends and family who donated! we will be doing the CIBC Run for the Cure in September and if you want to be a part of our team just let me know!

Happy Tuesday!

Busy, busy, busy. I like lists. Correction....I LOVE lists. Lists make me feel like I have completed something and not just simply wasted the day away. Usually Mondays are my day to catch up and run errands and what have you. Not so for this Monday so today became errands/laundry/grocery day. Actually I had planned to sleep in this am. I usually am up between 7 and 8 am. so anything after that would have been bonus. Not so! First DH's alarm clock decides today will be the day of the gong sounding and the cymbals clanging. Seriously, how many reminders do you need to get out of bed! Then DH's cell phone rings its wonderfully loud and annoying ring. By this time I have decided that the world NEEDS me to get to up. It is imperative that I rise and start the day that and I needed to pee. So then the phone starts ringing. Mom calls to tell me that my Aunt's sister has passed away. Sad way to start the day. Add flower order to grocery list. Check library and books are due today. Add to list. Start laundry and retrieve phone message from Laurie. Busy. Did I mention if I don't add an item to the list it is forgotten? Not really forgotten, but it does not even exist! So technically it is not that I forgot "it" because "it" wasn't even "it" in the first place! Well after library drop off, groceries, laundry and returning calls I forgot to pick up bottled water! Yikes! There is always tomorrow! Until then look what I made today!

time to start capturing those colorful moments!

what better day to begin than today? I turned 42 yesterday and I feel excited about what is to come. so many wonderful things are coming up and I will share it all here. I plan on using this blog as a place to show some art, tell some stories about my life and continue on this wonderful adventure I like to call "life".
