Defying Gravity

I've been watching Defying Gravity, season 1. It's an interesting premise. Astronauts in 2052 go on a mission across the solar system thinking they are exploring. Weird things start happening to the crew... hallucinations about things they feel guilty about... fractal tomatoes growing out of the blue.... the crew sweating with fever out of the blue, then getting better all of a sudden. Then they find out their mission is a little more complicated than what they were told. I hope the show continues because I really want to see how things pan out!

New DVD's!

I just got some new DVD's! I saw "Avatar" in the theaters in 3D and LOVED it, so I just got the DVD... it's not 3D though. I also got "Up in the air." It seems like a good movie... haven't seen it yet. I'll let you know how it is. I got 2 Dr Who shows with John Pertwee. "Dr. Who and the Silurians" and "Dr. Who and the Sea Devils." I got the 1st season of "Defying Gravity." I've seen the 1st 3 episodes. It's an interesting series.... of course it's Sci-fi. I got a book too.... "The Primal Blueprint" by Mark Sisson. It looks like an interesting book about diet and exercise... it includes barefoot running and eating more protein and veggies and less carbs. I just started looking at it, so I'll fill you in on more details as I read.

I woke up to this cute little guy... that's his morning look. So sweet!

Then I took Humphrey for a walk and saw this pretty tree... so I took a photo of the beautiful flowers.

I had a job today... I was in the audience at work for a change... got to hang around my friends... sat with Karen. It was nice to talk to her after so long! It was very comfortable outside... not a bad time at all.

I had a fun time after work today going out to dinner with Jeff and Ellen. We ate at Matchbox. I had 2 mini burgers that were delicious! I had a crab cake and salad. THEN.... Jeff ordered a bunch of desserts!!!!! I had some pecan pie, some chocolate molten cake, some sorbet, and a donut hole! ARGH!!!! But it tasted great!

I wore my wind chime necklace today.... what fun. I love the little jingling sounds following me everywhere.

Allergies still acting up.... gonna clean up the kitchen then relax. Goodnight folks!

I've been working on taxes for hours now.... YUCK! My eyes are killing me.... allergies, staring at computer and receipts, etc..... I have the new Sherlock Holmes playing in the background. I'll have to really watch it someday soon.... it looks good.

I made italian sausage with red & green peppers and onions. I had TWO! Yummy!

I wrote a letter to my compassion child and sent a b-day gift. I hope they buy her something she really wants. It'd be neat to meet her someday.... but that trip would be expensive and intense. She's gonna be 16 in June.... she only has until 2012 and she'll be on her own. I hope she can get a good job and maybe move somewhere less poverty stricken. She seems like a nice girl.

OK.... back to work... my break is over!


Humphrey is sooooooo cute! I got him some goggles... called Doggles. So adorable! I love dressing him up. I also like taking him everywhere with me! I got a few dog purse/carriers. I'm dying to try taking him to the mall. He's so small, I would hope no one would care as long as I'm carrying him somehow and he's quiet.


I've been cleaning up a bit.... trying to get to my taxes... organizing... and took Humphrey for a walk in the light rain. I think it's time for lunch! I'm hungry!

My birthday...

Well.... I got an iPad from my wonderful hubby! I have too much stuff on my computer, so I have to dump some stuff before I can use the iPad. ARGH! Gotta get movin' on that! I can't wait to try it! I also got a stretching book from Steve's aunt Norma. I got a leopard ring and lip balm from Vicki. I got money from dad and Bev.... and from Aunt Renee... plus she gave me a Steelers shirt and a pretty pink shirt. Tracey gave me a cool wind chime necklace! Claire made pretty blue earrings for me and is sending me a book. Jeff and Steve gave me a Kohl's gift card. Gail sent me a kids book called, "Sadie the saxophone fairy," and an artsy fartsy bookmark.

A bunch of friends gave me an impromptu party yesterday.... lots of good food! Wendy is an expert griller! Jeff made some awesome shrimp... Vicki & Scott brought a yummy salad... Tracey brought grape leaves and hummus... Ellen brought whole wheat pasta salad, strawberries and hummus... I made guacamole and chocolate cake with fudge and ice cream. What a decadent and delightful treat! Lots of beer and wine tasting going on! Of course, Humphrey was a hit!

What a great birthday! Thanks everyone!

B-day dinner

I just had a nice dinner with the hubby at Casey Jones. A grilled caesar salad, crab cakes, green beans, corn mix, sparkling rose and chocolate baked alaska. Delicious! Can't wait to see what my present is! :)

New Blog

I've decided to start a fun blog.... just talking about whatever interests me. That way people can get to know me better. I'm adding a link from my sax website since I really don't post many updates on the "News" page there.

As most people already know, I play saxophone for a living. I enjoy writing arrangements for sax ensemble. I sell a few sax products on my website... I use those products myself and think they are good quality. I also sell my CD, "Sunshine and Tears" and my arrangements.

I'm a professional photographer and really enjoy doing portraits of other musicians, head shots, kids and pets.

I love my family and dote on my dog, Humphrey, like crazy! Expect to see lots of photos of him, cause he's so cute I get carried away.

I love movies and TV shows... mostly comedy and sci-fi. I'll share titles of stuff I like and maybe you will enjoy it too.

This could be a lot of fun!
