The View From Here

I simply love the view from my bedroom window.  

It is the first thing I see every morning when I wake up and it reminds of how blessed I am.  

I do yoga by this window as it is the perfect backdrop to a peaceful practice.

Counting my blessings today for sure.

Sierah is due home for reading week and is bringing her new boyfriend.  We haven't met him face to face but have "cyber" met him through Skype.  Should be an interesting few days... she's probably crossing her fingers that we won't do anything horribly embarrassing like dragging out her baby pics, drinking one too many glasses of red wine or "oh no" the dreaded dancing to Madonna in the livingroom......but perhaps for this visit I could squeeze in Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" which I'm really liking....surely that wouldn't be too traumatizing an experience.    

Come to think of it there are probably a million things we could do that would embarrass her but most of them would just be us being us. ... maybe we're just freaks that way.  Sometimes when we are in the kitchen cooking and listening to music we'll just start dancing....I don't think that's weird but you should see Holly's face....never has a look of horror been observed on such lovely a face.  There was a time when she would give us a warning like  "if you are going to continue to do that I'm leaving" although now she has graduated to simply running down the hall to her room and slamming the door.

 Sheesh... teenagers...

Sierah told me last week that "the boyfriend" has a good appetite and likes Mexican food so I guess that's my clue to get in the kitchen and rattle those pots and pans.  I'm not making a roast for sure cause for some odd reason that is not a meal I've ever mastered.  I've followed tons of recipes and they always end up tasting like shoe leather although my sister gave me a slow cooker this last Christmas and I must say things are improving somewhat.

Well, guess I should sign off as there is an errand list as long as my arm today.  First up is heading out to pick up groceries and then of course that Lady Gaga CD

Have a terrific weekend....
