Some pictures from our recent vacation in the land of 10000 lakes.
Bella with a fish...

My lovely emma (on the right)

And me with a fish that I caught....

What else have I been up to. Listening to old blind melon over and over again (Have I ever mentioned how I love love love 90s "alternative" rock? Nothing better). They kind of remind me of the band my lovely brother is in Trent Wagler and the Steel Wheels (nice new website by the way B.) Blind Melon is a bit more rockified than their music, but there are some similarities (hope you are not offended by that B....love Blind Melon). I espcially am connecting with this song....In fact I am listening to it so loud right now that I will probably soon be like my Grandpa Cleo, unable to hear anything.

Change ---Blind Melon

I don't feel the sun's comin' out today
It's staying in, it's gonna find another way.
As I sit here in this misery,
I don't think I'll ever, no lord, see the sun from here.
And oh as I fade away,
They'll all look at me and say, and they'll say,
"Hey look at him, I'll never live that way."
But that's okay, they're just afraid to change.
And when you feel your life ain't worth living
You've got to stand up and take a look around you
Then a look way up to the sky.
And when your deepest thoughts are broken,
Keep on dreaming, boy, 'cause when you stop dreamin' it's time to die.
And as we all play parts of tomorrow,
Some ways we'll work and other ways we'll play.
But I know we can't all stay here forever,
So I want to write my words on the face of today
...And then they'll paint it
And oh as I fade away,
They'll all look at me and say, they'll say,
"Hey look at him and where he is these days."
When life is hard, you have to change.
When life is hard, you have to change.

And no, I am not depressed. I'm fine...so Dr. M in ID you don't need to call me, but if you'd like to, I'd happily take your call. 
What else...Got my T.V. up for the wii that I got the girls (and quite honestly me too). I love RockBand....I'm hoping to keep improving my (fake) drum skills so when my brother is ready for a drummer, I am the girl =). This post seems to be all about my Bro for some reason, but I am also learning lightroom inspired by his suggestion that I would love it. Still nursing my bum leg...never thought it would be so hard not to run. I ran today even though I wasn't supposed to (according to mr. trainer). I have lost a LOT of conditioning over the past 6 weeks or so with this stupid leg thing, makes me a bit sad. Well that is all that I can think of, have a lovely day all.

That's funny because for some reason I always think of you when I hear "No Rain". Must be something in my subconscience. Glad you had a good vacation. Nice fish!
