Random Tuesday....It's a new day!!!

A new day has begun and it is Random time!!! Todays' sunrise comes to you from Sandia Park, New Mexico....(my back yard)!  The majesty of this sight always takes my breath away!  Sigh!!

The Valentine tree is done!

And when the night needs some spicin' up...I always have a boa or two to use!!  That will put a smile on Dr. John's face!!!

Went to Dr. John's company party last Saturday night!  We had fun times! 

My son and my daughter-in-law (Ginger) were there and they brought my granddaughter Cassie, and her roommate, Brittany!  It was Karaoke night!  Dr. John, Cassie and Brittany all sang and they have fabulous voices!!

Party pics..........

Dr. John singing, "Luck be a Lady Tonight"

Cassie, Ginger and Brittany shaking a leg!!

Totally awesome night!  And they even gave Dr. John an award!  His very own Aluminum Album!!!!  Too funny!  Called him Johnny L.!!!  The singing sensation from Akron, Ohio!!  Woot!!  Woot!!  (Dr. John used to sing with the GoodYear Choir in Akron, Ohio!) 


Went to town yesterday and picked up Cassie and Brittany.  We all went to get our Nails done and we met up with my good friend, Cheri!  Good times!!  And it was a bit wild and crazy at times!  A nail tech was squirting lotion into her hand to massage Cassie's legs and the lotion went spraying up in the air.  Went all over the place!!!  Then, shortly after, my nail tech, Jessica, was taking the polish off of my nails and popped off the end of my nail!!  Ha!  Needed a new nail after that!!  Just another wild n' crazy time at the nail salon.

Well, my Bears lost their bid to the Super Bowl.  Looks like it will be the Packers and the Steelers cutting up the gridiron!  My granddaughter, Emma and my mother will be happy.  They are total Steeler fans!!!  It should be a good game!  We will see!!

I am still stuck on a weight plateau, so, at the suggestion of Cheri, I am doing the St. Joseph Hospital Diet.  Strange combination of food but supposed to kick the weight loss into high gear.  So we will see.  I will keep you posted!!  So far...nothing has happened on the scales but she says, don't give up. Sooooo....I wait!!

San Diego this weekend!  Hope I can get some sightseeing in.  Only be there for 1/2 a day on Saturday and 1/2 a day on Sunday.  At least, at the very minimum, I will see some sunshine and warmth!!  I mean, is California!!

Dr. John is hard at work on his book.  His publisher gave him a deadline of the end of March!  So he will be burning the midnight oil on this one!! 

I am still in process for the guest bedroom re-do!  Here is what it looked like before I started...

So far I have the bed done and I ordered a pole lamp for the room.  Like I said before, the color of the walls is still I won't change that!  The back wall has wooden cut outs on it.  I wanted to add dimension to the wall.  But I didn't want to do your typical molding or paneling.  I will keep you posted.

Enough of the Random already...I should have called this Random Picture day?!  Ha!!  Don't forget to stop over and visit Keely at The UnMom!  See if she is battling Zombies or the like!  Not to forget...visit all the Randomizers that will leave their links there!!  Fun way to get to know bloggers you may not be familiar with.  So hop on over!  I will wait!!!!!!!!!

Have a blessed and magical day!
Hugging you

Sueann, thank you so much for sharing your time with family. The photos are all so lovely.
I'm so pleased you like how the painting is going on. I was hoping you we're. I can't wait for you to recieve it. I feel like I'm painting love. It feels such an honour, thank you so much. I wouldn't of painted it otherwise. I would of gone a different way.
Loads of love!

The Valentine tree looks great. i think it's time I take our Christmas decorations down but now I don't want to deal with the mess. Time to get some hearts up at least.
Hope the new diet goes well....I've lost nata! or is it nada? 00000

The crown at the top of your Valentine Tree is just perfect! Love it.

Hope you have a great time in San Diego-- The weather in So. Calif. has been fabulous. ENJOY!

You temptress! Don't tease us with thoughts of you draped in those boas. Your tree is divinely over-the-top. Guess the redecorating bug is on the move. I'm redecorating my room, too. I'm using a bedroom from House Beautiful for my inspiration. Boy, does my room NOT look like the professionally decorated one. Need more stuff, and no clutter!

Tumble Fish Studio said...

I see your lovely sunrise and read the words Sandia Park and I am taken back to good vacations with stops in that area! Oh, wish I could be there now for a little visit. What a sky to be inspired from!

I love your Valentine tree! What a cool idea! I love seeing all of your projects and work and endeavors. It's fun to read about and makes me in the mood to get more done!

Hope you have a great weekend!

EWian said...

Wonderful sunrise! Just a couple of weeks now and we too will be able to see the sun. I am so looking forward to that.

Still super fascinated that you keep your tree up all year, and the valentine edition looks fab with it's feathered boa. You even have matching gifts!

You look good! and men with mustache and beard looks so charming. :)

Nail salon sounds like fun, no such thing here...(just ordinary manicure and pedicure, nothing fancy at all, and at the cost of 100 dollars for one of them :( )

Good for you keeping a positive attitude when loosing weight!!!

Sounds like you are having fun in the guest room.
