Back to routine...

FOR TODAY... april 06, 2010
outside my window...  75℉ and lots of clouds around.
i am thankful for... uneventful plane trips.
I am wearing... dark blue lucky jeans, white t-shirt and clear jelly sandals.
noticing that... only 2 months of school left.
i am currently reading... "ill wind" by rachel caine.
i am hoping... i can get back to my healthy eating routine...
on my mind... my older sister's visit this weekend.
pondering these words... "awareness is something that is very important. and you say that it looks impossible to become what we really are, to be authentic, to be ourselves again. but i will tell you that is much more difficult to try to be what we are not" -Don Miguel Ruiz-
from the kitchen... einstein's vanilla coffee!
around the house... need some fresh flowers.
one of my favorite things... watch a favorite programs taped on the dvr & zip by the commercials.
i'm creating... a new mini-kit.
a few plans for the rest of the week... grocery shopping,  have vet take a look at napoleon, pay bills, answer e-mails, work on mini-kit, check out forums and blogs, digi-scrap....
from my lens...
i ended up splurging on a couple of packages of the new px 100 silver shade film for my sx-70 polaroid camera!! i got the little box from ups yesterday and as soon as i had it, i just had to try it!! so... i went looking for my dogs who are always home & willing to pose for the camera! lol!!
 here's natasha in my very first shot:

vacation was nice and relaxing, the weather at the beach was great, got a bit of a suntan, got to see family and i definitely ate a lot while i was there. (best part, i didn't have to cook a single day!) i was pretty busy yesterday and will be again today since i want to get back to my routine asap, including getting back to healthy eating habits & resume normal rate blogging too! 

here are just a few of the pictures i took:
