My Home Away From Home

This is my home away from home. I spend 10 hours a day here four days a week. The picture above was taken early on a Thursday morning in February. One of my caseworkers and our Major was retiring. We decided to give them both a digital picture frame complete with photos. This is one of my favorites. You can click on it to make it larger. The staff I work with are incredible. It's truly amazing and a blessing to work with wonderful people.

A Room With a View

Yesterday I rearranged my bedroom in order to move the bed away from the big bay window at the front of the room. In the winter time it gets a little bit chilly there. Or at least that's my take on it. Having our bed there gave our room a much larger appearance. But we never enjoyed that big bay window because we kept the curtains pulled since the head of our bed was positioned there. I moved the bed to the west wall and thought Reynaldo would like having the curtains pulled open. He truly enjoys basking in the sunshine. Figuring he could stretch out and have at it, he had other plans. Take a look...

This is what he thought about that...

Hello!! Remember me? Thought I would actually get off my duff and post something tonight. This afternoon I decided to finally fix some stuffed pasta shells I've been thinking about. Having never done this before left me a little doubtful. But let me tell you what, these shells were sooooo yummmeeeee!! After looking at several recipes over the last few weeks, I decided to concoct my own. One with a little bit of this and a little bit of that and a lot of spinach. Hubby thought it was just okay. I think he'd prefer spaghetti. We had salad, shells and ciabatta garlic bread. I planned to do a chocolate pie too, but after cleaning my bedroom and rearranging it all afternoon, time didn't allow it. Maybe next time.

Photo Hunt - Sports

I'm missing summer already. So when I read the topic for Photo Hunt Saturday, I had to throw in this great one of the two little fellas fishing at Finger Lakes north of Columbia. They were having a great time!
