A Beautiful Surprise

It was way too hot today to be out scouting for photo ops in the desert or any of the outdoor venues, so WS (wonderful spouse) and I went to one of the local malls.  Mmmmm … nice and cool inside.  They also had a food court – lots of restaurants to choose from (grin)….

Desert Critter?

This is what happens to cactus as it dies and petrifies.  My mom used to take pieces of these and put flowers in them to make planters.  Not my idea of fun after picking one of them up once and finding several scorpions underneath.  This particular one looks like some kind of lizard-type creature.  We…

The “Look”

It’s a well known fact that women are born knowing how to give the “look.”  You know what I’m talking about, guys.  The way she looks at you when you get dressed in something that doesn’t coordinate, or when you follow too close behind someone while driving, or you’ve just interrupted what she said, etc….

The Answer to Yesterday’s Mystery Photo

For all of you who ventured a guess as to what yesterday’s photo was, many of you were close.  Ta-Dah!  Here it is.  This time in color with an explanation.  The photo is of an indoor swimming pool which has skylights in the ceiling.  The skylight was reflecting in such a wiggly pattern because the…

Any Guesses?

Today’s photo is up for you to guess what it is.  The only hint I’m providing is that lots of people who live in the desert have one of these.  Good luck!  If you care to register your guess you are most welcome to in the “I’d Love to Hear From You” box below.  Namaste’

Barrel of Boundaries

Setting boundaries can be a tricky thing, but we have to do it.  If we don’t, we can be manipulated so easily.  Especially women.  Why?  Because we are typically the nurturers, the caretakers, the keeper of the keys to the family.  The purpose of having boundaries is to protect and take care of ourselves. We…

Sunday Soul Collage

Today’s photo is a collage of some of my faves.  Having a gazillion (OK, a slight exaggeration) photos on my computer can sometimes lend itself to some creativity, so here’s my Sunday Soul Collage.  Some of these I took long before I started the 366 project. WS and I went out to dinner and we…

Blah Blah Blah

Ever had one of “those” days?  When I saw this tag this morning, I knew it was the perfect photo for how I’m feeling today.  Anybody else feeling the same way or is it just me?  I think my brain needs some chocolate 🙂  Namaste’

I Want to Be More Like Matt

There’s this really cool guy out there, traveling the world, breaking down barriers through humor, love and dance.  Take a look:  The Unstoppable Matt As for today’s photo, a little Friday humor is in order.  This is called “Getting My Ducks in a Row.”  The weatherman says we might get some rain this weekend.  Color…

Belly Fat Begone!

The reason I’m posting a picture of today’s lunch is that my WS (wonderful spouse) and I are on the South Beach diet.  Actually, I hate the word diet, so I’m going to stick with new, healthy eating plan.  It consists mainly of lean protein, plenty of veggies, some good fats, and basically VERY LOW…

Last Sunset

IF WHAT I SAY RESONATES WITH YOU, IT IS MERELY BECAUSE WE ARE BOTH BRANCHES ON THE SAME TREE ~ W. B. Yeats I meant to post this yesterday but got caught up in efforts to save the donkeys from the roping competition in Van Horn, TX, and I’m happy to say that all of…
