A winter Saturday

You hear that Arizona? It's still winter here and I'm feeling a little cooped up while you all seem to be posting pictures in your swimsuits beaming into the abundant rays of sunshine.

Ah well. It's been a quiet Saturday, just how I like it. Getting things done, relaxing. Pondering some big decisions, and praying praying praying.

I got a new lens, FINALLY. And so I take a multitude of boring pictures as I try to get the hang of things. Someday (soon please?!) I will get the hang of shooting in manual. It's a sloooowww process.

Can we talk for one moment - just one! - about how my kitten can hardly be called a kitten anymore?! They grow up much too fast folks. When I was baking today, he chased dust in the kitchen for an entire hour. He raced from one side of the room to the other, jumped, leaped, and raced some more. I really hope my future kids can entertain themselves this well.

Jason as always has been studying. I call this outfit business on top, party on bottom.

I made cookies for a friend as well as a kind neighbor. It feels good to bake but then get rid of them!

Tonight Jason's school is having a fancy gala where the teachers are known to get a lil tipsy. Awwkward. But if I get to see my lover in a suit, it's all worth it!

And finally, a little song that seems to be our theme song here in Iowa.

Happy Saturday!


  1. I'll trade you a few Arizona weather days if I can have a cat...? I want an orange one.

  2. I'm loving your pictures! They're not boring at all. :) It looks like a perfect Saturday... although it would be much better if it were warm. It's still so cold here too.

  3. Aww...I love the picture of the cat. And those cookies look a-m-a-z-i-n-g! :)
