Western Research

I've worked for this company before.  I'm not thrilled to go back and work for them, but its a job, and a paycheck, and a way to pay for school.  Funny enough, I walked in, and the same people who worked there four years ago, when i first left, still work there.

Sunset at home

Though I'm happy i'm done with school for now, I do miss taking nightly walks and seeing the sunset.  Starting tomorrow, I don't know when I'll see another one

Remembering Mrs. G

I have a friend who's mom absolutely loved roses.  I saw this new rose blossom, and thought of her for some reason today.

Pacman cookie

i'll be honest and say that todays pick was hard.  there were a lot of cool things that happened today.  we also went to the utah idaho supply store/map world (its a store for teachers?) and they had a globe of the moon, and of the constilations, and those were sweet.  also, today was the ward carnival/cake auction (which is where this was taken) and Dante got a sweet balloon sword (complete with hilt and helmet) that i thought about putting up for today (and wouldn't mind learning how to make.  it was sweet).  but this won :)

I've started to look at classes for next winter (I can't wait to go back).  I'm happy with the schedule i've been able to find.  I'll be able to get my AS, and not have to worry about the stupid foundations, and it will be pretty open, so hopefully i'll be able to work during the day, and have my evenings (and more importantly, to me, my saturdays) free.  though, i do like the night shift crew, so we'll have to see.

fried greed tomatoes

these aren't like the ones that i had on my mission.  i accidentally put in too much salt, and all you could taste was the salt.  i think i'll have to try again, with a bit less salt this time.

Eye Doctors

Our family has gone to see Dr. Hansen for I don't even know how many years.  They know us by site, (and apparently also by voice).  I'll be sad when I no longer am able to come to a familiar place any more.  Happy news, I don't need a new prescription, but I have been thinking of getting a new pair of frames that fit me better, and don't fall down every two minutes.

Early Morning Sunrise

sorry about the barbed wire.  I wasn't tall enough to get over it, and this was the best i could do.
