Hang on friends, I'm about to begin ramblin' all the way to nowhere.
This afternoon it was rainy and cool, so the kids and I made some chocolate chip cookies. Most of you know that I don't like chocolate. Not one bit, and yes, I know, that is extremely odd. But I do make chocolate chip cookies with, and for my family. Though I have an aversion to chocolate, I do NOT have an aversion to chocolate chip cookie dough (sans chips, of course) so I helped myself to a couple of big spoonfuls. It was yummy, but I can pretty much set my watch for 20 minutes, and when the time has elapsed, I'm in a sugar coma. Seriously...I crash so hard and so fast that I usually have to lie down. It happens without fail, but yet I keep eating cookie dough. Wonder if I'll ever learn.
Yesterday morning, I got up early and went hiking with a friend. It was a great hike, but I am SO SORE today that I can hardly walk. I don't know what I did to exert myself so much but I'm wondering if my knees and hips will ever recover. I think I'm getting o-l-d.
I told myself this morning that no matter what I was going to sit down at some point this afternoon and pull out my scrapbook stuff. I've been to 2-3 crops this year and haven't done one single page. Not one. I end up talking and eating and laughing and watching other people crop. Anyway, it's after 4pm and I've yet to pull my stuff out. I blame the sugar coma. Maybe later tonight (or tomorrow, or Friday).
Most people don't know that my hair is naturally curly. I bought my first CHI flat iron about six years ago and fell in love with it's ability to beautifully straighten my crazy-wavy-hair. The CHI is amazing!!! Every once in awhile though, usually in the summer, I give my hair a break and let it go curly. This photo is for my friends who don't believe me when I tell them that I have curl. Voila!...now you have proof! (Joanne, the "V" in Voila! was especially for you). If you think my hair is not super curly, you're right, and that's because our humidity is only about 5% today.
Oh, oh, oh...
We were at Glen Eyrie again this weekend. I've been there more in the last few months than I have in the last few years! A friend of ours wrote a book that came out last week and we went to the release party on Sunday afternoon. As we were leaving I made John drive all over Glen Eyrie looking for the bighorn sheep. We were almost to the gate when I spotted them behind the welcome house. SO EXCITING!! John stopped and the kids and I got out and took some pictures. I was beyond thrilled. They are such amazing creatures, and I am completely fascinated by them. We counted over 20 in the herd, including one baby.
Aren't they beautiful?
