Time is flying by!

WOW! It is already one week into the New Year! 
MY GOSH! Where did the time go?

Here was our spot at the Motorcoach park 
we stayed at in Indio for New Years. 
It was so nice!
We had such a nice time.
Took some time this morning to 
take a few photos of the living room. 
It was strange, we had guests last night 
and I turned on one of the 
lamps in there and left it on after they left. 
And it looked so pretty! 
Funny how something so simple 
makes the room look so different. 
I had moved the desk from one corner 
looking in to the other corner looking out
when I put the Christmas tree up.
I like it. So I left it that way.
That's my Mom's old typewriter 
from the 1930's.
She would hate that I told you that :) 
And that is my OLD journal I 
discovered in South Dakota.
We haven't seen the sun much 
lately and I liked the
way it looked shining through 
the front doors.
Now I am getting ready to head over to Arizona to stay with CeeKay from Thinkin' of Home for several days.

We are going to be attending a Terri Brush soldering class for 2 days together! YAY! Terri is just SUCH a sweetheart - I just loved her instantly at the event of hers I attended with Joy back in Sept/Oct in Oregon. 

CeeKay and I just got off the phone after almost THREE HOURS talking. So blame her for why it took me so long to get this post up today! :) (sorry my friend!) hehehe. I mean, we are going to see each other next week for crying out loud ... but there is just so much to talk about, and with my longer work hours we haven't been able to talk as often. She is too flippin' cute and I am so excited to get to see her and Marty and Cindy next week. YAY!

That's it for now. I need to start packing! But first - a trip out to Tai Pan with my sister, who is then going to spend the night here (our husbands are out of town together) so we'll have a great "girls" night - just the two of us, the dogs and a great bottle of wine. YAY!

Turn on a different lamp tonight - you just might like what you see! 

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Hi Karen! Oh, you're on a girly trip for sure. Sounds like so much fun. Tell all those gals hello.
Your home is so beautiful and your desk looks wonderful in the corner. How special to have your mom's little type writer - it's a cutie.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia :)

You have fun with those fine ladies. Tell them hi from me! I haven't had a visit from Ceekay in awhile but I pray for her health every day. Cindy is coveting the skates I used in my last post. LOL
Marty will carry her new fancy purse, I bet! :)
Have a great time, and Happy 2011!

My mother had a similar typewriter and could type 90 words per minute. Pretty amazing! Love the typewriter photo.
