I do, however, want to remind them that they always have their special guardian angel with them always. Someone who loved them unconditionally and is always looking out for them.
Sara, who just moved into a new house, hubby is away at police academy, is hearing all those new house sounds. This one is for you. Amy, who is going through changes always, this one is for you.
Lindsay, who is in month 7 of waiting for the new baby, this one's for you.
Wait a minute! Lindsay was always one to march to the beat of her own drummer.
But still, your guardian angel is with you even though you think you blaze your own trail.
love you all.

How does she keep that special Saturday night for herself?
This Grandma resorts to bribery.
She stumbled across the game while innocently going to Best Buy for a movie and some ink.
Look how excited this made her little buddies. The Grandma wasn't quite sure what to do with all the wires.
Not to worry. The one we call Jeff Jr. said "no problem".
I actually have to compete with the bribe now.

I was almost too tired to blog tonight,
but then came an email from my pal, Teresa.
She sent me more pics from Audrey's workshop.
Here are the two of us on the famous green fainting couch. These were shot by June. I forget what was so funny.......
we laughed a lot that weekend!
This is the area of the loft that the clients use to prepare for their sessions. The large photos on the wall, the photo "tree", the decor....it's all so awesome! I still can't believe I was actually there.
Thanks for sending these to me, Teresa!
Here's a little something else I'm putting on my plate just for fun.
Even if I don't get the entire project done,
(which I plan to)
it will be a great deal of fun!
I've also been busy working on my new website.
Deciding to go into business for myself again has
been exciting and exhausting.
But I love the excitement of getting started
AND it's something I truly love doing.
I am also working on getting Wonderland going
(that's the special garden in my backyard for my little buddies).
I'm at the really hard labor part......digging for a flagstone patio!
What happens to your strength and stamina after hitting 50?
I used to be able to go all day long and into the night.
Now I'm pooped by dinnertime.
So - little by little it will all get done.

My new friend, June, sent this today. It's a shot of the group I was with for Audrey Woulard's photo workshop last weekend in Chicago. What an inspiring group of inviduals! The talent this group has is incredible. See that big white carpet in the foreground? That was our one and only rule for the weekend. We couldn't walk on it with shoes on. By Sunday afternoon we were eating pizza on it.
Another Happy Sunday over with.
Hope yours was as good as mine.

A snail's view of the loft.
Pigeons on LaSalle Street.
The grand staircase at the Allegro.
Another portrait of me and my pal.
SBC Bean, full view.
The bars stay open until 5am and the taxi's run all night long.
This is the church Glen went to on Sunday morning. He took me by there later that day to show me how beautiful it was. I especially loved the crucifix on the front of the building.
This is underneath the SBC Bean, smack in the center looking up. It made you a bit dizzy walking through it.
This shot was taken by Teresa. We were so lucky to have found a new couple to call our friends. She was a delightful to be with and her Joe gave Glen a run for his money. Probably a good thing those two live in different cities.
I was AMAZED at this clever fixture. A vertical tissue spindle.
I call this "When opportunity knocks, open the door". The entrance to Audrey's loft.
Another snail's eye view of the loft building.
Glen kept a watchful eye on me as I wandered the city streets taking some night shots.
Anywhere, USA, late at night (but really, it is Wells Street)

I've been waiting to do this for two years and can't tell you how excited I am.
Last week while going through a shelf of "memories" in the basement, I ran across a treasure chest. The treasure was hundreds of slides that I had taken during the time I was taking photography classes so they go all the way back to 1980. That's how long I've had a love affair with SLR's. It is still going strong.
So I'll leave you with a few of my favorites that I had put onto slides. At $1/slide it's going to take some time to get them all transferred, but it will be worth it. I can't believe I don't have prints of these......
