Cause She's My Best Friend...

You must be sick of all the doggie photos...but like a new mom I can't help it!

Polaroid Tuesday :: Week 64

It just so happens that I am a Dragon...

I'm not sure if I agree with everything written here but then just saying that might prove true in what this actually says!

As the noble animal symbol that represents the Chinese emperors, Dragons are born leaders and masters of ceremonies. And because of this, every Chinese parent is hoping to have a Dragon child. Dragon people get things started and keep them moving. They are feisty and gifted with power and luck. Most people look up to the Dragon.
Dragons are born monarchs. As far as they can see, their power is indisputable. Dragons are idealists, perfectionists, they are born thinking they are perfect and they are inflexible. Dragons are also aggressive and determined, going after what they want is second nature to them. And due to their hunger for power, Dragons are not well suited to growing old. The prospect of losing power, the helpless feeling of youthful strength ebbing away is unbearable to them.

Irritable and stubborn, the Dragon is a real big mouth and his words often outrun his thoughts. Nevertheless, his opinions are worth listening to and his advice is always good. People do, in fact, listen to him and his influence is considerable. The Dragon is over-proud. He is enthusiastic to the point of impetuosity, and he loses his temper easily.

Dragons are dauntless, dynamic and delightful. When a Dragon enters a gathering, the room starts to simmer. The Dragon carries a self-assurance so impressive, and inflated ego so visible and a mouth so loud that it is useless to try to tell him anything.

Dragons are tyrannical. They hate orders except when they are giving them. Unlike the Tiger, who imposes his will seriously and firmly, the Ox, whose authority is implied in his very stern demeanor, or the Rat, who thrusts his dominion over others, the Dragon knows innately how to exert authority yet be gentle with his slaves. Dragons are terrible snobs. Although money is not always the object, they are slavishly impressed by wealth, prestige, rank and splendor.

The Dragon is gifted, intelligent, tenacious, willing and generous. He can do anything. No matter whether the Dragon chooses an artistic career, medical or political one, he is going to shine in it. He will be a success wherever he goes.

The Dragon is often loved. He is never disappointed in love. In fact, he is frequently the cause of some drama of despair. The women of this sign are surrounded by admirers and often demanded in marriage.

Music Monday :: Session 10

When working in a new environment, there's always people we spot that could be potential good friends. Been thinking of this song lately.

Music Monday :: Session 9

I was amazed to find out this song was released in 1972! I thought it was released in the radical 80's.
Hope you have it "your way" today!

Love My Way

Teepee for a Toddler

There is a little one we know that just turned three! I wanted to make him something special and I conveniently received this book for Christmas. Well, after much contemplating I decided to try my hands at making a teepee!

It was my first time sewing with duck cloth and sewing something more than a straight line!

I must say, not bad for a first! I would love to make one for myself, but I would have to triple the size of the pattern!

“Who could deny that privacy is a jewel? It has always been the mark of privilege, the distinguishing feature of a truly urbane culture. Out of the cave, the tribal teepee, the pueblo, the community fortress, man emerged to build himself a house of his own with a shelter in it for himself and his diversions. Every age has seen it so. The poor might have to huddle together in cities for need's sake, and the frontiersman cling to his neighbors for the sake of protection. But in each civilization, as it advanced, those who could afford it chose the luxury of a withdrawing-place.”

Polaroid Tueday :: Week 62

I couldn't resist and gave into purchasing the Fujii Instax 210 camera I mentioned last Tuesday.

I also found these Book Mark Index cards at Office Depot and thought I would keep a sorta polaroid diary. I snap a polaroid picture, jot a few lines down about that day and plop that into my library catalog. Hopefully at the end of the year I will have a catalog full of pictures of 2012!

“Each new day is a blank page in the diary of your life. The secret of success is in turning that diary into the best story you possibly can.” I wish you Happy New Year and diary full of best stories ever written in your life."

Music Monday :: New Year's Session ::

I tried to find a good New Year's song but decided to play this song and video. Why?
1. It's Sade 2. I would like to look this good as the years pass on by.
