I am back....

Well the year 2015 started out very quietly. We didn't even watch the Taylor Swift hoop-la in NY or anything! Bob bought a bottle of fizzy to toast in the new year and we didn't even crack it open! WE ARE SO boring! My house was decorated beautifully again. I just love Christmas and all the sparkly stuff! I took a few pictures of it on my i-pad but I will be darned that I know how to get it from one device to my computer! lol I have been gone way to long and out of the loop (so to say) as it comes to this stuff. WE also got new computers at the office (where I do all of my blogging when I am not busy doing work stuff lol) and I am not sure I know how to add my pics and writing like I did before when I used a program called windows writer. So I will give it a shot...if it turns out dumb..forgive me haha I will get it right. Kids are great...grand kids all 9 of them are great, beautiful and healthy (thank the Lord)I will have to give a break-down of all of them and post pics of them all ages and stuff. Owen who is our grandchild # 5 I think...:) is into that karate stuff and for a kid he is like a little brown belt of something, pretty awesome. I have only seen video of him. But he has a 6 pack! YES this little guy who is 8 has a 6 pack lol. According to my son he is awesome. of course! We had a summer of flowers in the yard (sun flowers my favorite, roses, Blue Angels flying over head which we could view from our back yard, Bob redid the back yard and added a wonderful new patio...not sure how to download those pics, but I think this is a pretty good beginning lol. My son Brad...has had some medical problems, was hospitalized in December with pulmonary embolisms on both his lungs. They counted over 50. Not good. He is only 35 and on oxygen. Send up some prayers for him and his family please. He is more annoyed with having to wheel around an oxygen tank more than anything, but without it...he cannot breath. Our youngest little one is such a dollie...she is going to be 2 in April and she keeps us on our toes. Keeps her daddy on his too even with his oxygen tank! I just know 2015 is going to be a good year for us all. I am working on a short story, and hope that I can find someone to publish it. I love writing. It is a passion that I have always had, just never really uncovered it. My children are encouraging me to get this story published because it is a true story of the love of my life and our journey. That's kind of a little clue here :) Well here are a few pics, I hope...and I will be back! Love Lindalu

It has been such a long long time since I have updated and posted on my blog, there is so much to write about and so many wonderful pictures that my story book is overflowing! Since beginning my blog in 2007 I have had the privilege of meeting amazing people that have touched my life in so many ways they will never understand. Pictures and a year of updates to come very soon! Hopefully when I get back to the office on Monday and my day has slowed down I can do some catching up. Christmas around the corner....and my halls are so decked...I can't wait to share! See you REAL SOON! hugs to you all...

Already end of January?

Where has the time gone?  I know why I don’t blog.  I did a whole new post and added 5 new pictures and BAM! it never downloaded!  Probably because I didn’t use windows live writer.  Hopefully this will download this time!  NOT USING blogger post load!  Do you love my header picture?  I took this photo this week with my nifty new lens.  It zooms in on stuff far away.  Cool huh!  Oh the sky was just beautiful.  The air was crisp it was 44 degrees and where else can you see such amazing colors all at one time?  The Southern Utah RED CLIFFS and Pine Valley mountains in the backgroundjan misc 084 ahhhhh so pretty.  See the little word DIXIE on the








hillside on the left.  (the header picture) This southern town is referred to as DIXIE.  We also have a college that just earned university status, Dixie State College, soon to be Dixie State University.  Saint George Utah is  coming up in the world!

It looks like I cut this photo in half but I actually did this on purpose because I loved the color contrast of the sky and this bush in my back yard.

There is nothing like a beautiful rainbow!  This was a double but the double was not so bright for the camera to pick it up.






jan misc 060 Last but not least, the sunset just a few minutes after I shot the rainbow.  Going from my back yard to the front yard.  Straight out of the lens folks.  I don’t know how to edit or change my pictures so this is exactly what I saw too! 

Have a wonderful weekend!  Hope to be back soon!
