Every Day is a Gift

My 365... I woke up this morning feeling genuinely happy.  Really, truly, 100 percent grade A content.  Why?  Because I know, deep down in my core, that every day is a gift. ...more

My 365... Things thawed a bit in our frozen city today.  Now rather than hard slippery ice, everything is covered in a nice slushy mess.  We are an entire 2° above freezing.  Wow, finally a balmy day. I love winter, but I found myself wishing for Spring today.  Being stuck inside for an entire month because it is too cold to go outside, makes it challenging to keep up a photo a day without getting really bored.  However, here are today's photos. Hope your weekend has been great.  :) ...more

My 365... "Blake, can I please cut your hair?" "No mom, I want my hair long!" "Okay, what if I cut it exactly the way you want?" "You promise mom?" "Yes, I will completely follow your direction kind sir." "Okay, lets do it." :) ...more

My 365... Today was Garrett's first day at Boise State University.  I am so proud of him!  He has been out of school for quite some time, but was ready to jump in with both feet and a full course load.  He and Kori both have full schedules this semester.  I know Garrett will do great because he is amazing that son of mine.  :) ...more

My 365... Happy Monday planet.  :) Since January 1, we have had only 3 days above freezing here in Boise. January 8th with a high of 36 degrees, January 9th with a high of 46 degrees, and January 10th with a high of 35 degrees. The other 18 days have  been below freezing.  The high today was 15°f.  I LOVE the cold, but this is mind, body and soul numbing cold. ...more

My 365... Guns.  I HATE guns.  Big guns, small guns, air soft guns, gaming guns, video game guns, toy guns, real guns, GUNS are bad!  They belong in the hands of peace officers, our military, and trained professionals only.  Okay, and hunters.  Not teachers, unless they are teaching about guns, and sure as hell not my 11 year old son. ...more

My 365... Hello Thursday.  Today has been a great day.  I love it when that happens. :) Garrett's girlfriend Kori had her wisdom teeth extracted, so not such a great day for her, poor baby. Garrett is taking good care of her though.  I feel so bad for her!  I really hate dental work.  :*( Hope your day has been A-okay.  If not, no worries...tomorrow is Friday!! ...more

My 365... Another glorious day in the frozen tundra that is Boise, Idaho.  It has been so cold!  Current temperature 16°.  I am feeling a little better today, but not back to normal quite yet. My energy comes in bursts.  Yay, I feel great and can get back to normal...followed by, "oh dear, why is the room spinning round and round?"  I am doing fine then I have lay down, or I feel like I might pass out.  *Grumble* I hate being sick. ...more
