Full of relaxation

What a week of getting 11 hours a night sleep (and the Hawaiian air) looks like
And one joyful smile from Diane's recommendation of the best shaved ice in Oahu

The beginnings of healthcare

The most entertaining pic sent to me in weeks.

I think I could rock that hat.  Ruth could wear that uniform in style.

What a week

51 hours worked
6 cities
5 airports
3 doctor visits 
2 countries 
2 birthdays 
1 concert 


Listening to that still small voice

Last week I was doing the dishes.  As I was putting the coffee cup on the bottom instead of top (because the top was full and I didn't want to spend the extra 45 seconds readjusting the dishes) I knew it was a bad idea to put the cup there.  But instead of pausing and listening to that inner voice I went ahead and started the dish washer.

My gift 2 hours later. 

Listen to your heart.
Listen to your instincts.
Listen to inner voice.
It is your true self. 
It will guide you to make the right choices.

Are you a cardinal fan?

The Thomas' were the first to experience being "cardinalized" on Instagram 

No one is safe from my new entertainment  (and FYI,  I have sat alone on the couch laughing at my creations - while my children and spouse politely nod that it might be funny)


Some of my favorite things

Chai Tea
Pecan Pie
Great Mate to share it all with

1.8 million acres of forest land

There are certain places that evoke immediate memories; some grand, others emotional and even further some that are just peaceful.  

Sedona is that place for Tarzan and I.  It has always been the place that can relax both of us quicker than any other place.

"Sedona exists at an impossible intersection of soul-nourishing wilderness and pampered luxury—where soaring red rock monoliths cradle an array of resorts, spas, art galleries and boutique wineries." (Sedona Chamber of commerce)

I fondly recall staying at the radison cabin after a trip to the Grand Canyon with Tarzans parents and the kids, another trip hiking, one with friends and the pink jeep tour, I have a perfect memory of thanksgiving there in 2009 (documented with my favorite picture taken by the creek), this same trip found the ideal wedding rings followed by at least 2 birthday spa trips.

After a short week that felt long (that's REMs quote) we decided to take a 22 hour trip there. A minute there it felt like hours.  
And the hours felt like days.
Officially recharged with a while new set of memories.
