Hi everyone,

I just wanted to let you all know that I am still here.  I've just been taking an unexpected blogging break.  Ever since I started working, I've found it hard to juggle blogging and working and everything else. However, I've come to the place where I'm feeling the need to blog again so that I can keep the creative juices flowing.

With that, let me leave you with a few photos for today.

I saw this beautiful piece of American machinery while at the grocery store the other day. It's a 1955 (or 1956) Ford Thunderbird. I really do love vintage classic cars.  When I saw this in the parking lot, I KNEW I had to snap a quick photograph with my camera.

Cannery Row is a lot of fun. It can also get really busy with traffic.  Today was the craziest I have ever seen it...literally. This is what it looked like when my dad and I went out for a drive this morning.  As long as one exercises some patience, it's possible to navigate these tight spots. This is the first time I've ever seen it like this. Usually it's just a matter of driving around a semi or a delivery truck.

The purple ice plant in Pacific Grove is starting to come into bloom again. It'll be in full bloom around May and this entire shore will be covered in this purple pink color. It'll be absolutely fantastic ;) :) :)

Otherwise, I'm doing really well, even if I'm still having some issues with time management :) :) :)  God has been really good to provide me with my current job and it's making it possible for me to pay all of my bills. 

I am working on saving up for a Canon 7D camera, so I can take professional quality photos. That'll take awhile, but I'm up for the challenge :) :) :)

I would love to hear how all of you are doing.  What have you been up to these last few days?  Stop by and leave a friendly hello.  That's the news from the ocean shores of California today.  Love and hugs, Heather :) :) :)

Heather, it's good to hear from you again. I've missed your posts. Happy to know you are well and liking your job. I've had bronchitis in Feb. Much better now. Have my mental list of what to pack foe my short mission trip to Nicaragua. I leave end of April for a week. I'm excited and anticipating what God has in store for us there. I seem to end up blogging once a week, used to do 2 a week. Its hard to do when 4 days a week is work days. At least people are still reading. God bless and have a good weekend. Ps..the tulips are blooming in Oregon now. :D

Welcome back. It's good to hear from you. The shore line is beautiful. I have never seen such a beautiful shore line. A new camara sounds exciting. Blessings! Lara
