Cirque de la Symphonie

Friday night, Chris and I had tickets to see Cirque de la Symphonie and what a WONDERFUL show it was! Our Augusta Symphony has such amazing talent and to be paired with Cirque artist, it was an awesome sight, indeed. If you get a chance to see one of these shows in your area, by all means, do.

Just call me Book Worm....

I finished Twilight in record time and now I'm probably 3/4 finished with New Moon. OMG! Where have I been?! These books are great. I can not wait until the movie, which will be released 3 weeks earlier than first reported. In the mean time, here's a little preview........

Went to the crop this past weekend and had a great time. Came home with some new JustRite stamp products which are really neat. They have a grid surface that allows you to insert letters, borders, shapes, etc., so you can have a customized stamp instantly.

Other than that, life is about the same - work and very little play - LOL!

Have a great week!

Scrappin' Time!

I have a big weekend planned - scrappin' away in Columbia! Whoo Hoo! I've been busy this week kitting projects and printing photos to get ready and I can't wait. It's so fun to get away with friends and work on projects. So, do something fun while I'm away. You deserve it!

Something New to Read....

I have something new to read and all I can say is WOW! Twilight is the first in a series of books by Stephenie Meyer and I am totally hooked. I have heard so much talk lately about this series (#1 New York Times Best Seller), especially since this book is being made into a movie and will be released 12-12-08. I don't normally read books that deal with vampires and such but this one is so different. It's romantic and intriguing without the gore (at least no gore yet). It's like TV's Moonlight - where you love the vampire! I'm excited about reading this one and getting the next one soon. So, I highly recommend it.

Memories of Colorado

When I first started blogging, I promised I would post some pictures of our trip to Colorado in May. Well, time has definitely gotten away from me. So, I thought I would start the weekend off with some from our visit to the Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs. This was one AMAZING place! I came away appreciating nature so much more and realizing those so-called "mountains" in Tennessee, are just ant hills! LOL!

This is a view from the visitors center at GOGs. The snow covered mountain in the background is Pikes Peak and it is over 14,000 feet above sea level. We didn't get a chance to go to the top of Pikes Peak, which is probably best because after being at the GOG for about 4 hours, I was getting a little altitude sick.

To give you a perspective on just how tall and big these "red rocks" are, look in the bottom left hand corner and you can see people on the path (by the dark green bush - LOL)

Here's just a few of the pictures that we took. What majestic beauty!

This rock formation is appropriately named "kissing camels"

This is "balancing rock" and as you can see, it's just sitting there all by itself. Of course, it's being helped by my wonderful, strong son. LOL!

I can certainly say, without hesitation, I would have no problem re-locating to this wonderful area. I was in such awe the whole time we were there. I do hope to visit again. There was so much more to see and not enough time. I will try and post some pictures of the Flat Irons soon. These mountains were directly in front of our hotel in Bloomfield (outside of Boulder). And, maybe I can squeeze in a couple of pictures from our visit to the Cave of the Winds too.

Have a great weekend!

Life is a big mystery. One minute everything is going fine and the next - well, you know what flies into the fan! I have had the role of being Mom, Wife, Nurse, Patient, Developer, Office Manager, Customer Service Rep, Irate Customer, etc.....all the while, maintaining a cheerful smile. It's enough to make you want to just find a tree house somewhere and hide out with the squirrels. So, with my busy multi-tasking life, there's nothing to report - well, actually there is lots to report but I would rather not bore you with all the details. I will just hang on to the hope that there is a rainbow (near a tree house) and I'm headed on the right path to it. Until then, here's a picture of Zoe. Even he has his moments! LOL!
