i am a mom/wife/textile designer gone haywire. I love to sing(music/arts AA degree), craft, exercise, and be goofy. Just living life outside the norm. And the norm thanks me for it. Oh yeah, and I like me some haikus. . . .

What are we up to currently? Aaron recently started medical school at Ross University on the island of Dominica in the Caribbean, and the kids and I are along for the crazy ride :)
Our sweet little Italian Greyhound mutt- 5 weeks old.
She was abandoned and we adopted her last night. The kids think they
are just babysitting her for two days for someone else but we are
getting her fostered until Christmas eve (if you know what I mean).
She actually fits IN the bowl- I ended up using a peanut butter jar lid to feed her.
These kids love this dog
He's in heaven. He got up a few times in the night just to lay on the hard ground next to her
Well, she didn't like the milk. i guess she's past that stage
It's like her own little yard... with a giant rolling Indiana Jones basket ball. Careful, doggie! Don't get crushed!
A group of spouses took a trip to Roseau to shop (there is much better selection for food and things in Roseau. It's the capitol and takes about an hour to get there).
I love my envelopes I got at Astaphans!!
Here is a random cellar door we walked past on our way to Pizza Hut (YEAH BABY- there are only 3 American fast food places on the island- Pizza Hut, KFC and Subway- the only one by where we live is Subway). It looks like the building owners found it somewhere else and propped it against their wrong shaped cellar doorway. I love the stone holding it in place.This is so typically Dominica.
Haha this picture still cracks me up. I took that last pic of the door and then my friend, Chris, said hey go sit in front of it and I'll take an artsy picture. He positioned me and everything. lol what a goof.
The goof under a fisheye lense.
I used the color filter on my camera where you can select a color in the viewfinder and then any other color turns to grey scale. Pretty cool green nail polish. Lacey goes crazy when I pick it off. HA! I'm pretty sure I painted these the night before at her house.
On le bus. I'm sitting in the very back seat because I don't get car sick like everyone else on the relentlessly winding roads. It's quite a ride!
Well, Matte Beare's brother came into town this week and since I'm the adventure seeker in the group, they asked me to show him the Dominica ropes. Here's our Toucari Bay trip.. not that exciting of a day, but here are pics anyway ;)
Blue Headed Wrasse
Squidies! They change color and you never see a group of them, you see a line. They are so cool and sometimes kind of playful.
