Yes this is a real sunflower I took this shot a couple of summers ago in the garden outside my work window

Friday, January 2, 2009


I can't believe that it is 2009 seems like summertime was just here, or it could be these faux winter days we have been experiencing that have clouded my time perception.

Regardless of where my mind thinks the time is presently there is no denying 2009 is definitely here. Usually I have some inspiring words and some motivational something or other, but unfortunately I am fresh out! The inspiration fairy skipped me this go around so the best I can do is offer you a Happy New Year!

As for myself, I don't do resolutions. My focus for this year, as discussed with a friend, is to have no repeats of mistakes from 2008. I am also trying to keep my temper and anger level at a minimum. That is probably going to be the hardest thing I am attempting to do. Luckily for some it will be a welcomed change. While I cannot commit to being extra nice and smiles and giggles with everyone, I'll make the effort not to be overly mean. This does not mean if I already do not care for you that I am just going to be jumping for joy when you come around but I can be civil at the very least, it won't kill me.

In other news, apparently I am a little directionally challenged when it comes to telling my left from my right. I got in my car this morning and it said check front right tire pressure. Ok it's cold out and dark, but I wanted to do the right thing so I went to the gas station to get some air. My father and I had discussed the scientific mumbo jumbo that goes along with why the tire pressure changes with the temperatures, but I can't remember the exact way that the conversation went so I cannot share that at this moment. Back to the story - so I go to put the air in the tire waited for the thing to make the sound that means it was at 36 and figured it was done. I start the car again and it still says check front right tire pressure. Ok now I'm like what the heck is going the air machine defective? Again, I put more air in the tire that I was certain already had enough air, start the car again and now I have a streaming message....check front right tire pressure....check front left tire pressure. I push the button to see what the numbers are...front left is 48 and front right is 23. I feel really slow at this point because all of this time I have been filling and checking the wrong tire....ARRGGHHH. And sadly I can admit that I should have put air in that tire a while ago because I checked the numbers and it has always been lower than the others, but when I checked it manually with the tire gauge (still the wrong tire) the numbers were fine. I may need to label my hands with a l and r so I can tell the difference in the future, way to go me! Hope that made you chuckle a little...

Have a Great Weekend!
