the view

the view

Looking out from my office window, where I’ve been spending increasingly more time, I am blessed by the view of my neighbor’s yard… aka construction zone. Half finished shed, old and most likely rusting swing set, a dog run semi-covered by plywood, and a glimpse at what looks like a Gma & Grandson window sticky afternoon project. Not the prettiest.

Looking up it’s instant homesickness… a flat, dry horizon with -count them- 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 trees in my field of vision.

To the left are Box Elder trees. Just hundreds. Not like home but it does give me some green, and I’m so thankful for that.

The mountains out here are absolutely gorgeous. I catch a lot of shots while Cam’s driving, of these beauties. They’re more than I’ve ever seen and I’m even slowing beginning to tell my navigational directions by them. [The Wasatch (the big ones) are in the East, and the Oquirrh in the West.] I’ve re-battery-d my camera to stay in my purse so I can actually use the photos somewhere other than just my cell phone.

I’ve finally begun work and have been improving each day at my line count, that’s always encouraging. We’ve purchased our tickets for a trip to Portland in January and I’m excited for that.

Today, I have a little cleaning a lot of organizing ahead of me. With limited storage, it’s hard to organize anything, but I’m tired of the photo boxes blocking our wedding things on the dresser. So I’m going to have to get creative and find a way to make the office work a little better. I have a few ideas but it will certainly be interesting…

I’m also going to be looking at houses, townhomes, and condos in the Magna/West Valley area. We’d like to stay around here but I don’t know how that’ll work out. We’ll see.

More soon, I suppose…
