Well... it's not yet offically winter, as the Winter Solstice is yet to be upon us, bet take a minute and let me tell you it's COLD here. It got down to 12 degrees last night and the all mighty high today is 41. Now, for this lil 'ol Texan - whose idea of cold was ... oh - about 60 or so ... except for those two days when it gets icey then back up into the 60's and 70's again... I'm begining to wonder if my hands and feet will ever get warm and STAY warm - unless they are being toasted in front of the gas heater. Meanwhile, my roomie is running around in a t-shirt and jeans, saying how it's "too warm" in the living room. Ye gods above and below - I never thought I'd see the day. But ... we do need a hard freeze/winter here - the bugs were HORRIBLE. And the poor trees... thought it was spring again and have been (up until this week) budding out like it was. Pretty sad that the global warming has gotten so bad it's confused even Nature.

Anywho... I'm off to put on MORE layers of clothes and see if I can't obtain warm toes and fingers... and nose... and all of me!

Happy Feet

HAPPY SATURDAY! It's only 23 more days until Christmas. I'm working today. Right now my girl is in, stretched out on her bed, playing with some toys, while the Christmas music plays. She's all smiles this morning. She knows we are going some where. Not only are we going somewhere - we are going to see Happy Feet this morning. S and I are taking her son and J with us... her middle son, C, is too cool to see Happy Feet so he's going to see Santa Clause 3. To each their own. Rob is going to be joining us, so it will be interesting to see.

Here's my favorite Happy Feet picture. I think it is my favorite because of the scenic view it holds.

It's the weekend and yet I'm working... but that's okay... I like working with my girl. Things are SO much better and yet things are still up in the air at the same time.

I've come to the conclusion that I just need to buckle down and go to college. I've talked and talked with CM and the Cartography program sounds like not only something I can sink my teeth into but something I will enjoy. I've worked with CM a few times on some of his projects and have in some ways, fallen in love with the programs and the detail of it all. I'm the typical "A" personality... organization and coloring coding are right up my alley.

We are planning things and looking at numbers and how to's and where fore's and we'll see... but it will be done.

Laters til Later
