I just got back from a weekend in Arizona to find these pictures in my email inbox. Just look at those sweet cheeks!


learning by osmosis

My cat, Kira, can be such a riot. This is her studying with me.
I am behind on my studying, but it is such a gorgeous warm day, that I have the urge to do what the cat is doing, and just soak up the wonderfulness.
I have been scrapbooking at work for a poster contest and trying to keep up with life.
I fly out to Arizona in a couple of days on a work sponsored vacation. I'm representing my company at an event at my Alma Mater for a couple of hours. I am hoping to split the remainder of my time: study and relax. I need copious amounts of both.



I love the beach. I had to study today, so I made it fun by doing it in a nest of pillows and blankets in the rocks next to the ocean in Malibu. Note - just because it's the ocean and california and everything... I still need to pack some gloves next time. I stopped by the paper store for some reward. I'm trying to get away from the food as a reward and replace it with paper, which - since I'm already addicted - is not so tough. (I impulse-purchased a Snickers in the checkout, though... so I'm still losing the war.)

I estimate that if I do a SB layout a week, I will have 2007 wrapped up in about a month. I notice that some years have tons and tons of stuff going on (lots of pictures) and then there is 2004 - where I see no point in even scrapbooking it. The entire year is like Memento, but without any polaroids at all. Take a picture today, or it will be like it didn't happen.

P.S. I'm on some strange documentary kick. I watched five documentaries in the last few days. I enjoyed: Sicko, Cocaine Cowboys, & What the Bible Says.

Oh, and while I'm at it, see Juno on my recommendation and then remember that I like odd-ball comedy and wonder what's wrong with a person that can joke about a baby in such unorthodox ways.
