At the Patch

I get a lot of scrapbooking done when I take a class. So sign me up. I am at Big Pictures taking a stash buster class but since my stash is mostly digital, I won't ever bust it but I am cleaning house and throwing things out. YEAH! These are some of my favorite pictures from this era.

Sun Glasses Required

This should be posted on Throwback Thursday but then again since I'm still scrapping 1989  they're all throwbacks. Glad I didn't throw them back. haha This was a Polaroid pic originally. A tad grainy but it is the memory. Gotta have it.

Snow Storm Hits Portland

It began at noon on Thursday and continued Friday and Saturday with gusty winds as well. I was home bound. Thank God for the Olympics, my fiber work and an occasional glass of wine. What's a girl to do?

May Showers Bring June Flowers

Did I get that right?

I love to capture the colors in my garden at different times of the year. In June it was purple. Nice-a!

The Rose Parade

First and only...
Why have I waited so long?
This parade was a blast.
I met Amada, Natalite and folks for a grand morning with coffee and doughnuts, not Voodoo, but good. The gay pride people were next door and fun they are. Return, I must, if not next year then next after. Hooray!

Golf Goodness

A special day, sharing friendship and fun with other like minded golfers. The 9-hole group planned a and executed a splendid day that began with morning nibbles and coffee, then on to a 9 hole scramble and ending with lunch.

A show of golf fashion, lots of chatter and of course prizes were awarded. What a wonderful group of women and a lovely way to spend the day. Hey girlies, you all look so good!

I have an evil twin. Her name is Elena. Her story needs telling, and so I did.

I am a fairly ordinary person. I like coffee and tea, both with cream. I like soup and salad, I like meat and fish. I like cookies and cake. I like white wine. I like tennis and golf. I like technology. I like my I-Phone. I like sunshine. Rain, not so much. So you see, nothing out of the ordinary here. Things roll along pretty smoothly for me but every once in awhile this gal shows up who just frankly, gets in my way. Her name is Elena. I might be playing tennis, hitting some good shots and then she comes along and has to put the game in overdrive and send balls flying out of the court or into the net. My tennis coach says she can’t come to any lessons because she doesn’t pay. Same with golf. I will be driving the ball straight down the middle, avoiding sand traps and the like and then this chick shows up and BAM! before I know it I’m in a lake. She runs up my score amazingly quickly. SUCKS!
 She’s the one who always reaches for the fourth cup of coffee or the third glass of wine or the second cookie. She’s also the one who cheats on my diet. Damn her! Thank God she doesn’t cheat on my taxes. She’s the one who curses. Well, OK, maybe I do a little too but she’s the one who blurts out things without thinking. Not me! I love a good retort. She says sarcasm is her second language. She forgets peoples names. I would never do that. I’m always on time. She pushes the limit. We do both love to each other mostly. I’m never quite sure what to do with her but then again, life wouldn’t be the same without her. Afterall, she is my evil twin!
