my city

I was reading my friend Dale's blog and his entry about his favorite city skylines.  It made me want to look up pictures of Portland...probably my favorite city in the world.  I came across this website.  I would post all of the pictures, but it'd be easier just to click on the link.  There are so many different parts of the city that are so gorgeous...parks, waterfalls, mountains, rivers, bridges, city buildings.  I love the city and miss being there so much.  Part of it is how much more I enjoyed my life at that time.  Being at the Living Traditions festival last night reminded me of being in Portland...partly because I used to go to a lot of things like that in Oregon and also because a good friend of mine from Portland was there performing.  Sometimes you just have a moment of nostalgia.  Thanks for sharing in that moment.

In other news, I'm moving to Arizona on Tuesday.  So, I have a lot to do tomorrow.  And then I'm going to go face the excruciating heat.  I only hope and pray that this change is a catalyst for more change.  I need some change right now.  And I'm hoping that "change is gonna come".

the land of Green

last weekend we went to Oregon.  we had a free day on Thurs and decided to go to the Columbia River Gorge...get a look at the scenery..go hiking...
here is the view from Crown Point...one side is Oregon, the other: Washington.

Easter egg hunt

we had some easter festivities at the house..including an easter egg hunt. 
any attempt to relive childhood through holiday festivities is fine by me.

we were real classy and used old grocery bags...reduce, RE-USE and recycle..right? something like that.
deanna beaming with joy...and the sun.


'stretch armstrong' at work.
Dale found my secretly hidden egg behind the door! notice my sign for the realtors to stop walking in through my room!

not all could be pleased...eh?
but most were satisfied:).

Adventures of late
