The SUPER moon!!

So, after my 9 hour hike up to the Flat Iron and back (and not a sore ankle in sight, yay!!) I had to run out and try to get a shot of the SUPER moon. It's the closest to earth it's been for 20 years, so it was kinda one of those things I had to capture, even though every muscle in my body totally kills right now...so, i grabbed the kid and off we went to try and find a place with no obstructions in our view...and we wound up across the street from Mercy Gilbert (the best hospital ever!) on this little dead-end side street. We were getting our shot set up when the poe-leeece stopped by with their big, bright lights to see what we were doing and if we were okay...there had been a stabbing reported, and so we snapped a few shots, got creeped out and left. I had to help it out a bit in Photoshop, but this is what we got...not quite was I was hoping for, but...it's okay...and at least me n the kid are safe and sound!

Irish blessing

took the kid to the Boyce Thompson arboretum and found this cute little patch of clover...

...then I took the poem that my sister forwarded to me and 'enhanced' it a bit...Happy St. Patrick's Day!

dun dun dunnnn...

k, so I have been insanely busy and have neglected my poor little bloggie. I do apologize, BUT...I'm not sorry cuz I have been having SUCHA good time...I've been hiking and took a trip out to The Boyce Thompson Arboretum (LOVE IT) and I've been training new volunteers at the hospital, training at the Fire/Police Department, working a school carnival and running a school book fair and attended a baptism and been crafting things and now I'm getting ready for SPRING BREAK!!! Yahhh baby...WOOOOT!!! I won't be going to Mexico after all due to my husband having surgery but I might just buy a pile of sand and sit in it while I dip my feet in the pool...life is good today!! So, off I go to the book fair again...peace out!!
