Sitting at the Airport!

The bags have been packed, the extra fees to check one onto the plane with me have been paid, and I am officially on my way to see the Husband! Yeah!!! I will be gone for almost a week. I can't wait to get a back rub! He does such good massages, and no I won't loan him out! He's all mine! LOL!
While down there I am shooting a wedding (big surprise, right?) but my camera is still in Ontario being repaired. I went to McBain Camera in Lethbridge where I do most of my urgent camera shopping and they were kind enough to loan me a camera again. Unfortunately, (ya right!) they didn't have my exact model on hand. Hmmmm what to do........? OH ya, let's just let her use the most fabulous DSLR to come out in the last year, the Canon 5D MkII. Seriously! I get to use it all week. It's going to be miserable to give back. It is 23 mega pixels and sharp as can be! Paired with my new L glass, it will be killer. This week should be a blast! Picture overload!!! More like harddrive overload. May have to pick up another pocket external! LoL. Anyway, got to go catch my flight to Hotlanta!

Oh the Jiggling and the Jostling

As most of you know by know, I am running my first race in the UNDERWEAR AFFAIR. It's coming up in two weeks."PLEASE DONATE!!! Running isn't something I've done since my diagnosis of cancer. I kind of gave up on the whole fitness and sensible eating route. With finally finding a way to support Uterine Cancer I'm back on the band wagon. So today while I was out for the jog, I made some discoveries. First, if I relax my body and let it do it's thing instead of trying to protect my back, knees and ankles which obviously was causing me to unintentionally tighten those muscles, running feels better. It's not the total drudge I've been thinking. Also if I don't force the pace and think I have to be so fast I accomplish a lot more. I don't burn out. I've learned to set small goals like getting to that big tree down the road. LOL! If I think of it in smaller parcels I don't psych myself out by thinking I'll never get there.
Now, I must be one of those very annoying people who ask everyone and their dog for money to support their pet causes. But, this one means the world to me and I have to do what I can. So please, please, please, find it in your heart to help me raise $1000 in the next 10 days. If $5 is all you can do that's great! I'll take it! Please, DONATE.

I'm still here, really I am!

I was tempted to go back into hibernation this week when the snow showed up again. I wasn't sure I could handle more winter. Honestly, I was about prepared to brave the H1N1 flu virus and move to Cabo. But what do ya know, the sun showed up this weekend. Nice enough out that I'm thinking about breaking the horses. LOL! That should be a challenge. Let's have a picnic too!!! I think it will be fun to perfect a knew recipe over a fire, don't you? MMMM S'mores! Cheezy smokies and mustard! Smelling like a campfire. Attractive, no? So...want to come with? You're invited. Just join me at the Beazer crossroads on Monday at 10. I'll see you there!!

UPDATE!! Ok, scratch that last date and time. Leaving NOW!!! CYA!

New Internet!!

We just got a new satellite connection set up this morning! Yay!! It is soooo much faster than what we used to have. I am actually able to upload pictures again. Maybe now I will be able to keep up with my business blog. LOL hmmm maybe that would help to drum up some more business. Anyway, I was able to upload a lot of the pics from the last 2 weddings onto facebook and that should get my name out a bit more. Lets hope anyway.

Also, I have had a bit more interest in my fund raising efforts for my race in the Underwear Affair. I am so thrilled! I've even been running. How's that for a shocker. Haven't done much of that for 4 years. But, this has given me the motivation. That and my new cute, cute Nikes.
