Creative Trash

These sheep can be found in the Frankfurt Museum of Communications and are created by
Jean Luc Cornec. They are made from old telephone parts and cords.
Very interesting,

What kind of Super Power do you want?

This may sound like a strange question, but have you ever thought about it.

One night while in a restuarant, my son and I were discussing the subject when our waitress came up. I asked her what kind of super power
did she want to have. She picked the ability to stop time.

"Why," I had to ask.

"Then, I could stop class and take a nap. Then when I woke up, I wouldn't have missed a thing."

Sounded like a good reason to me.

Knowing the cosmos, when they handed out super powers, mine will probably be something silly like being able to change the color of a wall.
Not very useful, but I could drive my family crazy with multi-color rooms, and I would also save my husband many hours of painting.

Trying a Different kind of Exercise

After watching the olympic trials over the last few weeks and seeing the wonderful shape all the swimmers were in,
I thought I'd give swimming another try.

Easy, right?

All you do is float along and kick your feet.

Wrong, I hate to get my face wet.

Instead of graceful butterfly stokes, I move across the pool like a long neck turtle with two angry flat fish after me.

A battle of aquatic life in motion.

Have a great day,

Celebrate the sun

With summer now in full bloom make sure to get out an enjoy the sunny days while they last.

A beautiful weekend behind us, I'm trying to get out and appreciate the weather we're having. With everything else we have going on, sometimes I don't step outside during the day. I look out the window to marvel at the lush green colors, but I have to force myself to stop a minute and go outside.

Remember to take time to enjoy nature. It'll brighten your day and help clear your head.

Family Tree

This past weekend, I was at a place near where my relatives are buried. My father curious to find his uncle grave, took us on a trip down memory lane.

I realize some people don't like graveyards but the history of our families lie in the stone carvings of resting places.

I don't play RPG games but everyone else in my family does. Because of this, I sometime feel like a WOW widow, which I'm sure other wives
and mothers can relate too.

I don't mind them playing the game because it is an escape from the stress of the day, or a place to met friends.
We all have online friends. I have my yahoo groups, they have the RPG friends.

For those of you who play the game check out what type of player you are at GamerDNA

Take the quest test

I took it even though I don't play, kind of fun to see how social you'd be in another world.
