on the way.

I am in the Ft. Lauderdale airport for my 8 hour layover and layovers this long are getting old. But hey I'll live with it. But thank God that there is free wifi here, I get bugged at those airports that charge for wifi! Nothing unusual has happened. God blessed me with a smarte cart so I wouldn't have to schlep my bags all over, which I wouldn't do really without the cart. 
I love to see elderly couples together, traveling and helping each other. It warms my heart. 

Leaving on a jet plane...


             Here I am at the entrance to China Town. That is my boyfriend. Ha!
                            Here are my beautifully pedicured toenails with the ocean as a backdrop.
     Here is a pelican I think he was dying because he didn't fly away, but he did try to snap me.

Hehehe did anyone notice that Ryoko is "Looking to the Skies" in my title pic? Isn't that awesome!?
Well I leave tomorrow Tuesday the 26 and my heart once again is heavy to have to say goodbye to all the ones I love.
But my heart thrills at seeing all the friends I have made in Honduras. I am also excited for the additions to our family out there as well, it's going to be a whole new adventure with them. I am excited to get to know my new kids for this year, I met most of them last year in Maria's class so I know them and they know me and they are all terribly cute. 
I finished packing tonight. It seems like I get better and better at knowing home things will fit and how things will weigh. 
My family here in ABQ is moving this next week to another house, so I have been having to help with that and pack up my entire room as well as my Honduras stuff. That has been a huge deal and I am leaving at a not so advantageous time for my family. So I feel bad about that, but what happens happens.

Hoozah!

Glory to God!
I am on my new computer right now and that means I can post pictures!

Here is the obligatory black and white dock.
                                            The ghost ship.
One day I too shall surf!

I just thought this was really cool with the effect I used.

many things

My trip to CA was great! I had lots of fun with my family there. I was able to go to the beach and San Francisco. I enjoyed it very much.
On to other things. Do you want the good news or the bad... well I will give you the bad news first... My puppy in Honduras died. :( Chris said he just did, he probably was unhealthy. I did not really have a chance to bond with him yet I am still sad. He was awfully cute and I was looking forward to having him. A moment of silence for Weelsun-Pedo-Frijole.............
Now for the good news! God saw fit to bless me with a new laptop!!!! Another thing too IT'S A MAC! A Macbook to be precise. It is so humbling, I'm such an undeserving person and yet there it is. Blows my mind! Here is a picture of the type of computer it is.
God why are you so good to me, I am such a wretch and yet you bless me.

Tu Bandera....

Oh in case you hadn't realized that flag taking up half my blog is the flag of Honduras. I can kinda fake sing the national anthem.... the first line is "Tu Bandera" which means Your Flag. Great way to start a national anthem wouldn't ya say? Check it out for yourself.

city life is getting to me...

As I spend more time... as me in this world I know. I realize that I am well suited for the solitary life and I have to wonder is that good or bad? Do I find my cave and hibernate, only emerging when sustenance is needed? Or do I traverse this barren wasteland searching for the watering hole? Where do I belong? With a pack? In a pride? A covey?
Are lone wolves really alone?

I miss my solitude.

sad computer news.


Today I had a mission: to fix my faithful friend my ibook G4. I went to the Mac Store.
I talked to the genius at the ( i don't know what is with the underlining.. I can't stop it) Genius Bar and he pretty much said that my hard drive is ready to die. I had the hard drive replaced by a Mac certified guy. I wanted more memory for pics. But apparently the transplant was rejected because this is the second major problem I have had in this year.
Please pray for God's provision in this matter!
and sorry about the underlining.

Koi
















I took these at the Albuquerque aquarium. They have a exhibit there of koi fish. I love the way these pic turned out, almost looks like it is ink/water colors.

You like me, you really like me!

I love when people read my blog! It makes my heart smile! Hooray! Just so you know also, I don't just update when I send out a mass email. When I have good strong internet I try to update at least once a week! Just so you know.
