Excited about....NEW TIRES???

These types of things never excited me before.
Now...with husband in a different state, I have found
myself spouting out terms like "bushings" and "shock tower"
not to mention the odd serenity I have felt while
reading "The Book Thief" amidst the cacophony of hydraulic lifts,
air wrenches, and the clinking and clanking of mechanic's tools.
Even the oil-scented atmosphere was welcoming.
New bushings and washers - check.
Safety and Emmissions - check.
Registration renewal - check.
New tires - check.
I am evolving.

I took these pictures this morning to remind myself how I decorated the house this year so that I can do it the same way next year.
Then I thought, "It will not be this way next year. It will be different."
A different home awaits.
Why, then, did I take these pictures?
Perhaps for a memory.
Perhaps for a record.

BIGGEST burger I've ever eaten!! The incomparable Bacon Green Chile Cheeseburger at Greasewood Flat in Scottsdale, AZ. Holy Burger, Batman!

Taking my first of many HUGE bites of flavor explosion goodness :-)

Hey! Who's that handsome cheeseburger model?

We were THERE!

This one's for you, Honeycombe...

"Now I'm not a highly metaphysical man
But I know when the stars are aligned you can
Bump into a person in the middle of the road
Look into their eyes, and you suddenly know."

"But I know one thing, that I love you"

"I love you. I love you. I love you"

miss: to notice the absence or loss of

When a reach finds emptiness,

and solace is found in death.

When a ghost-glimpse of a memory past,

and a re-creation is as close as you can get.

When an empty spot screams,

and empty shoes create a deafening silence.

When an oft occupied place earns the honor of an offering,

and a vacancy consumes an entire space...

Then the curtain of denial rips
and you feel it.
The Missing.

A vow to update

I just visited my blog for the first time in AGES. It is sorely lacking in updated over a year. I vow to update my blog soon. For now, I will at least change the background from Christmas to something more appropriate.

One down...many more to go!

Jocelyn lost her very first tooth today! She's had a wiggly, wobbly tooth for several weeks now. She finally decided she'd had enough and made up her mind that it would come out TODAY. She twisted it and tugged at it a little....all to no avail. She then enlisted the help of mom who ever-so-gently applied pressure in a downward direction and "POP!" --- it was out. She is gleeful now because she can eat her chicken nuggets and cinnamon toast without being bothered by that darn wiggly tooth. I guess the Wiscombe house will be getting a visit from the Tooth Fairy tonight :-)
