so there's this big metal tree in the middle of nowhere. it's between salt lake city and wendover. just off the freeway. really bizarre. here's a link if you want to read more. we drove past it today on the way to lose some money in the slots and i thought it would make a good picture of the day. i used my phone camera so it actually looks like a scene from star wars or some other sci-fi show!

i'm a nerd. i love the library. i love checking out books. and i love that you can look up books online, see if they are in and go get them. if they aren't in, you can request a hold and they will send them to the branch you want. it's great. i went to pick up new books today at the draper library. it's my favorite one.
i was coming home from the grocery store today and took a road i usually don't. the road hasn't been open for very long, so i thought i'd try it and see if it got me to my house. it did. and along the way, the view was incredible. so i stopped and took a picture. i tired the landscape feature on my camera and it worked pretty well. i love how the picture turned out. it's looking over the valley (utah county) that i live in. the big white area is utah lake, that is currently frozen (i think!)

i'm committing to eat and live a healthier life. of course, it's going to be a long process. this is one of my favorite breakfasts (and treats, sometimes!). i recently discovered these splenda flavor blends for coffee. add a french vanilla to some oatmeal and it's super yummy!

sorry about the quality of the photo. i was too tired to go get the good camera. this is my new laptop. my other one died the day of our trip and my honey bought me a new one for valentine's. i love it. he gets golf clubs now!! and my old dead one is in the corner in the background!

i set up a vacation hold online with the post office. it was supposed to be delivered yesterday, but something got messed up. so i had to go pick it up today, which was fine. this is a weeks worth of mail. i would say half was junk. i got 3 great cards and two other fun things from friends. it made the task of sorting much more fun!!

i love digital cameras. the one thing i don't love about them is sorting through the hundreds of pictures you end up taking, only to find you have about a dozen good ones!!! oh well...at least you don't have to pay developing fees for the rotten ones!
ps hopefully tomorrow i'll get days 26-33 done.
