Pretty Fall Day in Utah

Picture of the Day for 10/21/2014. It's a pretty fall day in Utah. This is a view of big, puffy clouds over the mountains from my street. This picture was taken as I was taking at the trash, which isn't so pretty, but at least the view was nice.

Looking Fabulous in Outerspace

Picture of the Day for 10/20/2014. I love this picture of women in space from this article. It was illustrated by Juliana Jiménez Jaramillo. If I were to go into space, this is how I would want it to look like- all fabulous and glamorous. Since I know this isn't reality, I have no desire to go into space. This always surprises people who assume, based on my obsession with space and astronauts, that I'd be first in line. Nope. And it boils down to one thing. Bathroom facilities. Enough said.

That's not to say looking like this is totally out of the picture. My artist acquaintance (from my years of attending Spacefest), Michelle Rouch, will paint you as an Astro Girl. Check it out here.

The World's Largest Hair Bun

Picture of the Day for 10/19/2014. I'm still experimenting with my hair and you are my blog victims who have to hear about it. I'm kind of in a bun phase. This is how I wore my hair today- in what is possibly the world's largest bun! The Bun That Ate New York!

Turning Off the Electronic Devices

Picture of the Day for 10/18/2014. I'm finding that I have a hard time settling down at night. I just want to watch this one program on TV before I go to bed. Oh, let me check Facebook one last time. Hmm...that quick glance at Facebook wasn't so quick and ended up being thirty minutes. Oh wait, there's one more thing I can do on my computer for work. Before I shut down I need to quickly check out a couple of blogs I follow. Hey, that blog entry had a link to an interesting article which took awhile to read. See my problem? I suspect this issue plagues most people. I'm trying to cut myself off by 9 pm and read an actual book, not the Kindle on my iPad where it's too tempting to swing by Facebook again. I'm not successful every night, but I'm making an effort.

Side Bun

Picture of the Day for 10/17/2014. What do you do when you're bored on a Friday night? You experiment with hairstyles. If you're me. Here are some attempts at a side bun.

Ethan Can Be Bribed

Picture of the Day for 10/16/2014. My great-nephew Ethan joined us at family lunch today. My sister Robynne and I informed him that he needed to run right over to us so we could kiss his cute face. Surprisingly, the 11-year-old boy declined.

Not to be deterred, Robynne pulled out the big guns. Money. She waved a few dollar bills in front of his face. Oh the agony. You can see his thought process in the pictures below. "Should I take the money and be subjected to a icky kiss? Ewww."

"Kisses are gross, but the money is great. What should I do?"

Eventually he capitulated. Duh. Everyone has their price. Robynne was irritated that I was able to bribe him for a kiss for a mere dollar, but it's all the cash I had in my purse!

Thank You Note Drafts

Picture of the Day for 10/15/2014. I had to write three hand-written thank you notes this week and get them in the mail. You would think that since I only had to write three notes, I would only require three cards. Ha, I wish! It requires about 40 note cards for me to mess up with accidental misspellings or slips of the pen before getting them right. I seem incapable of producing a thank-you perfectly the first time. Does anyone else have this problem? Or is it just me that is thank you note-challenged? Sigh.
