The Beauty of California

Today I will pick myself up, shake myself off, and try again!  I haven’t blogged in a couple of days, haven’t gone to the gym, haven’t really eaten they way I should, haven’t done much work around the house.   So today I got up at 7am and went to the gym at 8:30.  It is 9:25 and I am working on my blog.  I am going to do better today :-). 

I did work in one of my journals.  Trying to finish it since it only had a few pages left.  I did accomplish that and will make a video flip to show you.  It is my very first journal!  And although I don’t like every page.  It is the start of my journey through this wonderful world of art journaling that I have started.  It has made my very happy.  I have a smile on my face much more often.  I am truly glad I started this journey and found all of you in the process.  🙂 

I want to share some of my photos with you from my day trips.  These trips occurred mostly between 2007-2009.  I had them all nicely labeled and organized.  Then a virus hit my computer and I was lucky to even save them (thanks to my son, David).  I then bought an external drive to save my photos on so I wouldn’t loose them should a virus ever attack again.  I don’t think I completely understood how to transfer the photos to this new device and keep them organized, because they lost all their labels Now I can’t tell you exactly when or where most of them where taken.  Most of them were taken in my beautiful California or on the California/Nevada border.  I believe these were all taken in May 2009.

    Gorgeous photos, Shirley! Thanks for sharing them. No need to feel bad about taking some time for yourself. Last night I went to bed at 9:30 (I KNOW! So totally unlike me!) and didn’t get up until 10:30 this morning! But I haven’t slept much lately, Stressed about Chale. He’s having his surgery on Monday. It had gotten postponed because of some of his pre-surgery tests. More stress, less sleep. Feeling much better today!
