Final random photo for my 2010, 365!

I am so proud of myself.  I have taken at least one photo a day for the last 365 days.  I went through three cameras, but so many great memories. 

I am looking forward to my next 365 project for 2011!  :)

Until next year...

 "What can I say?  I am brilliantly musically inclined."

 "Now go away and let the master compose!"

My 365...

December 30, only one more day for the year 2010.  So hard to believe this year is over!

It has been a difficult year for me.  So much drama, however with drama comes knowledge if you take the time to learn from your mistakes and grow.  I think I have.

I am excited about the coming year.  I have a lot of changes planned, and these changes are going to take a lot of hard work from me but I am up for the challenge!  After all, anything in life worth having is worth working hard for and I plan on doing just that!

My photo of the day is this precious little baby Jesus that my aunt gave me before she left for Texas.  It is a simple tiny itty bitty baby Jesus, but during hard times, and I have had many this year, placing the little baby in my hands and holding it close has always given me comfort.  As crazy at that sounds, it worked for me.  So thank you Nana.  :)

Back to work for me.  I have four hours to go before I can enjoy another glorious three day weekend!

Until next time...

"Yes Miss Lilly, and no it is not for you!"

Books.  Now they are good for decoration purposes only.  Save a tree...purchase an e-reader!

I do love books, but now everything I read is in electronic format. These would definitely come in handy if the power ever goes out!   :)

I finished book one of Terri Blackstock's Restoration Series, and it was awesome!  I am now on book two, Night Light. I am so glad I stumbled on to this author, I love her stories!

"Miss Lilly?  What did you do?"

"Who me?  Nothing...why do you ask?"

"You have placed yourself in "Time Out", and you only do that when you have done something wrong?"

"Nope, nothing wrong, just taking a little chill, that is all, no go away!"

My 365...

What was your favorite Christmas gift? Mine was definitely the e-reader I purchased for myself. The Entourage Pocket Edge.  

I did purchase it a few weeks before Christmas, but this little gadget has gotten so much use, and, it has rekindled my love of reading.  Just since I opened the box, I have read so many books.  I am just finishing my 10th novel.

Whether you get a Kindle, or a Nook or an iPad, I highly recommend the e-reader experience.  I love it because I can lay in bed at night, and read when I can't sleep.  90% of the books I have loaded on my reader have been free downloads from Amazon.Com.  The website PixelofInk posts daily leads to free book dowloads, and I have downloaded every single one of them!

The book I am reading now is called "Last Light" by Terri Blackstock.  This title is currently a free download from  You can find the title here.  I do find that the free offering may only last a few days, so grab it while you can!

I will be the first to admit that I do not tend to reach for a good "Christian" read as my faith is something very personal to me.  However, these books are written so well that I can say with absolutely certainty that I recommend them!

The Last Light is full of surprises.  What this book has reminded me is that as a nation we are a very spoiled and dependent society.  We are critically dependent on technology and electronics.  If all of those things were to fail, we would be so lost.  I am almost finished reading the book, just a few chapters left, and I am hoping for a happy ending.  At least I will walk away from this novel with a much needed reality check and some inspiration.

Until next time...

"Mama! No pictures!"

"It is PlayStation time with Blake."

I woke up this morning ready to work, and when I sat at my computer I discovered a group of soldiers guarding my desk.

"Blake, why are there Lego soldiers on my desk?"

"They are there mommy to keep you from working today!  You have to take a day off and play with me!"

Oh honey, how I wish I could.  :)

We are a little sad that Christmas is over.  It all passes too quickly.  :(  But I told the boys that we saved the Christmas stockings for New Year's Eve so they have something fun to look forward to.

Back to work for me, I have five hours to get in today.  That is not too bad.

Until next time...

Ducati, waiting in the window for his boy to come home.  :)

Still a little snow on the ground.  We are hoping for more tonight!

In a house full of boy toys, guns, trucks, cars, etc....mama had to treat herself to a little girly toy...

My daughter collects these little cuties, and this one reminds of her so I had to have it!

Hope your Christmas was magical.

Until next time...
