Tuesday's Sunset

I was leaving our local taqueria and noticed the sunset in the windows of a building near by. The color is glorious. Too much visual obstruction to get the "real" sunset. So here is one of my photos of the day.

Also took a couple of the bulbs in my garden. Take a look!

My husband loves the irises. the crocus' are still my favorite.

Ready or Not... I am going!

A friend and I are going to Green Tangerines in Rocklin to the Sweet Retreat Scrap and Spa Event this weekend. It begins tomorrow at 5 pm and ends Sunday at 5 pm. No, I won't miss the 49ers game. I think I have everything together. To tell the truth I just pulled things together. I always take more than I can accomplish. And I am committed to help my friend create a beautiful scrapbbok for a very special recent honor and celebration in her life. My clothes are packed. Ready or not...I am going!!

The beginning and the end

                                 I had to be on the road at 6 am today.

The sunrise was glorious. However, I was not in a position to take a photo with my camera. Not at 65 miles per hour on highway 101.  I am delighted I was home in time to see a glorious sunset again today. This time I was able to capture it in a photo!

Yesterday's Photos

It is amazing to me each time the bulbs emerge and the flowers open. I still see the crocus blooms just as I did when I was a little girl...excited to see them emerge through the snow. How could flowers bloom in such cold!! My husband and I love to see the bulbs emerge. A real sign of hope and life! 

My God how great thou art!

Twenty-Twelve in Photos

I joined a new FB group (Twenty-Twelve in Photos - A daily photo project) after hearing about it from a friend. I love taking photos and putting them into a scrapbook. I do not take daily photos. Though, with a smart phone with a camera and a pocket camera in my bag, I have little excuse.The object of this group is to take a picture everyday in 2012. I joined this group to encourage myself to do something creative each day and to look outside of my routine. I also joined this group to nudge myself to create this blog.

Today the weather is lovely. Rain is coming...maybe tomorrow. I have been taking photos of my life. And now they are posted here.

 I saw this little guy when I was taking out the trash!! He too is confused by the weather.

This is my first card made Saturday the 14th with my new stamp set, Tea Shoppe.
and another...

Here's my girls....waiting for me while I create!

Until tomorrow!!!
