A post with "impossible" news and a freebie too!

FOR TODAY... march 29, 2010

outside my window... surrounded by tall luscious trees & can still hear the high pitched noise of the cicadas.
i am thankful for... time with family.
I am wearing... comfy gray shorts, white "twilight" t-shirt & white flip-flops.
noticing that... seems that time has stood still in this house.
I am going... to spend the day with friends.
i am currently reading... "the friday night knitting club" by kate jacobs
i am hoping... we get nice weather at the beach.
on my mind... missing my imac computer...
pondering these words... why yearn for a promised land? the true land is in the heart. -deng ming-dao-
from the kitchen... a maid preparing breakfast!! :O
around the house... besides the mockingbirds & the cicadas all is quiet.
one of my favorite things... curling up in bed with a good book.
i'm creating... this post.
a few plans for the rest of the week... typical homemade food, walks along the beach, sunbathing around the pool, margaritas prepared by my dh, take photos of all the kids together & read to my heart's content!
from my lens...

i'm at my house in san salvador since saturday and will be living early tomorrow to costa del sol beach which is about and hour and half from here. the temperature here is about  87 ℉ , sunny and perfect for the beach!

 i wanted to do a post before leaving since i will not have internet connection for the remainder of my vacation! yikes! (only my iphone) but first of all because i wanted to thank you all for the wonderful response and comments to my first digi-kit. i'm honestly just getting my feet wet as far as designing goes - taking baby-steps towards becoming more experienced and offering better designs. your positive comments are of great encouragement & motivation. so, thank you, thank you, thank you!!!  ♥
