We're Out

...again. Off to the mountains for the week.
Leaving you with this neat page.

Have a nice walk.

Back At It

I have 1 section (about 3 paragraphs) and the conclusion for my Literature Review left to write. Peanuts. Why is that so hard?

All I Need, originally uploaded by apkoski.

I did, however, turn in my manuscript for editing and (wince) scrutiny! Needing a break, Wednesday, I picked up some scrapbooking. My backlog is an embarrassment. 2004.

Meanwhile, our "summer project" has begun, receiving intermittent attention from Paul & I, despite the perfect paint-scraping weather;

and the garden has exploded (in a good way).

And finally, we're SO looking forward to vacationing in Colorado next week. We're especially excited to pee off the edge of another 14'er. :)

I won - I won! This Love Forever drew MY name for Color Week. I get a cute-cute cupcake. Yahoo - Yippee!

Anyway, I though it might be in poor taste to win something without completing the exercise (I was out of town, in my defense). So, here's Friday: Blue or purple.

I love this picture because it is so striking, and because I can say, "I made that." :)


We're Ba-ack...

Just A Test

As a writing break, I signed up for Blogger in Draft, a guinea pig Blogger for early adopters. Although I normally fit in with the early majority, I hear Paul in my ear, urging me to try it. So I have, and picked the feature I saw first (top of the pile), video uploads.
Welcome to our fmr. Little Blue House, which is miraculously still here. (This is the only movie file we have....)

Ok, for my next writing break I will go find something yellow.

Late Entry: Color Week

PB & Pear, originally uploaded by apkoski.

Since I haven't been too competent at writing actual posts lately, I thought this would be a nice goal: I joined Color week hosted by Love Forever.
This is Tuesday. (Guess what color!)
Wed. is coming - on Thursday!

Smiley Face, originally uploaded by apkoski.

After pretty much two straight weeks of analyzing data, writing, tracking down articles and committee members, and dealing with the Grad. Office, I couldn't take any more!

I needed a crafty break. Behold, a pear. Yummy.
