My Grandma died this past week.  She lived a very full and vibrant life.  This is her on the left with her three sisters.  Exactly one week before she died; my sister, niece and I went to Bend to visit with her.  I hadn’t seen her since she moved into assisted living.  So the Grandma I saw in the hospital was a mere shadow of her former self.  We visited with my mom and uncle who had been with her...

This week has been so hectic for me.  I’m feeling really run down.  There isn’t a direct reason for this.  It’s just been a hard week.  So I thought I would put up a picture of my other Buddha.  This one I bought in China two years ago.  I visited my cousin in Korea and we took a side trip to China together.  What an amazing experience.  I climbed the Great Wall of China (All...

Peonies

I love Peonies.  I don’t know why, but I’m so drawn to them.  At one time I even contemplated getting a tattoo of a Peony.  They are far superior to the rose.  Which I believe is totally over rated.  I’m not into things that can hurt me.  It’s a little ironic since I live in the ‘City of Roses’.  I guess I’ve never been known for being main stream.  If...

What’s in a Name?

I am named after the Marty Robbin’s song Jolie Girl.  I grew up listening and loving the song.  I told everyone I knew that is how I got my name.  Then a couple of years ago, I was talking to my mom and mentioned how cool I thought it was to be named for the song.  My mom blew me away by saying that wasn’t how I was named.  It was an earth shattering moment for me.  I had embraced the idea...

Wedding in Kansas


Posted on May 10, 2005

I  just came home from my trip to Kansas.  I had such a great time.  I loved seeing family and catching up.  I even learned some pretty crazy family lore…which I won’t be getting into.  The main point of the trip was to see my cousin get married on May 1st.  The wedding was held in an amazing chapel on a 900 acre garden.  The day was beautiful and the bride was gorgeous.  Yes, I did...

So today is my birthday.  It will be my last prime number for awhile.  I made this cake for my birthday last year.  I turned the big 3-0 and had a great party.  My sister threw me the party since I hosted her 30th.  Part of the present was not having to clean up the next day.  I did make bracelets as party favors.  I don’t think I have a picture of one.  This year will be much...
