Earthquake? and rain?!

The weather out in the bay has been incredibly weird. Most of last week, it was raining cats and dogs (not literally, of course). A couple of days ago it felt like we were in the middle of spring; it was so warm that we had a chance to run around at the park. Yesterday morning, there was an earthquake! I didn’t feel it, but I did hear Maui start crying and acting weird. Perhaps she felt it? …and a couple of hours ago, it just started to rain again! What the heck is going on?!

Anyway, it’s been a few days since I’ve posted anything, and there are a couple of things I wanted to share.

This past week has been extremely hard for me. For some reason, my anxiety got the best of me, and it kept me preoccupied. On a better note, everything has gotten much better with the help of people who care. My good friend, Jennie, came to spend time with me at the roughest of times; she even opted to cook me dinner. She made me my favorite Filipino soup, tinola, and cream cheese wontons. Boy, it was super delicious!

I couldnt ask for more in a best friend!

Thank you, Jennie.

Sooooo delicious!

Gloria managed to get me out of the house to enjoy the sunshine (before it started to rain, of course). We ended up taking Maui to the dog park. Afterwards, we just ran around like hooligans in the field of grass.

Go, Maui, go!

Go, Maui, go!

Dont even think about it, Mr. Corgi!

"Don't even think about it, Mr. Corgi!"

They are totally ripping this apart!

Oh, how I hate this!

Grooming and bathing does such wonders for a Schnauzer.

I cleaned up my scrap area, so I had tons of room to make a bigger scrap mess of course! ::wink:: I finished a few layouts that I wanted to share.

Pink Sketches released another sketch! Make sure to check it out f0r s0me weekly inspiration. Also, remember there is still time to apply to become a design team member. Head on over to see how to apply. Here’s my interpretation of this week’s sketch:

I was inspired by The Design Experiment to create a layout about what brings me comfort. This is what I came up with:

…and here was a layout I completed just for fun. I really LOVE this one. I love the pink colors to this one. I love the journaling. I love the house. I just love this one in general, hehe.

Now, it’s off to watch this year’s Oscars. I love looking at how everyone is “glamoured up”. My favorite actress so far is Natalie Portman! I thought her dress was stunning.

Off to Oscar watch,

Sarah.

    i love the LO. it is so great. At least it was a small quake since the bay is long overdue for one. Keep up the great work with the layouts. I really love the little things because you are able to see that every little bit counts even on the bad days 🙂

  2. Hey babe. I’m sorry to hear that you had a rough week. Hope you’re all better now!!! I love the layouts that you’ve been churning out! Gorgeous to the max!

    I agree to the little things – live each day, one at a time, take time to enjoy every situation (even the bad), when you look back, you will see a life of fulfillment, not one of a person with GAD. =)

    Giving you lots of love and hugs from Singapore!! *hugs*

    The weather sounds like it’s being weird. I watched the Oscars last night, and I really hated Miley’s dress. What in the heck was she wearing?!

    Fun fun fun fun fun pictures of Maui, and the food looks delicious.

  12. awesome new layouts!!!! that food looked so delicious!!! yummy good. hope you’re feeling better. If that good grub didn’t work, nothing would 😉

  13. Rain in the bay and in the valley means snow in the Sierras. I’m thinking of it that way, so freezing at work and getting soaked isn’t as bad.

    I love the tag “cream cheese wonton.” Why don’t you call it what it really is! Muwahahahahaa!

  14. You are more than welcome to share the wontons with me. My fave! 🙂
