There are signs everywhere.....things are looking up

Even on the top of a rock in the middle of the dessert.

This sign is blank which leaves a lot for the imagination to ponder.

Danger! Danger!

Could there be something hazardous lurking around the other side of the rock?

Future Home of.......

A new resting place for hikers and photographers.

My interpretation of the sign is that things are looking up.

I had to look up to see the sign so that in itself is my sign that things are looking up.

When things are looking up, it means that I have plenty of things to look forward to.

Today, I'd like to share some of the things that are making me smile with delight in aticipation of what lies ahead.

I get to go see Dave Ramsey Live in Phoenix.

I am a huge fan and have wanted to see him live for quite some time.

A change of scenery always makes my restless soul settle down a bit.

I like adventure and traveling to new places.

Santa Fe sounds like a good place in which to venture.

I've been reading lots of reviews about things to do in Santa Fe, New Mexico
and one thing that stood out for me was a restaurant walking tour and or a hands-on cooking class such as the Chili Amor or maybe even a demonstration class that shows you how to turn steak and potatoes into a southwestern flavorful fare.

I really love to cook and I think this would be a wonderful way to spend at least four hours of one day learning about the Southwestern culture and flavors. 
Sometimes you just need to spice it up a little.

So.....vacation is on my mind and I smile every time I think about all the places I want to go
and all the things I want to see. 

I'm also looking forward to seeing my sister very soon,
and my parents,
and my brothers
and my sisters-in-law
and even some old friends I haven't seen in a few years.

Yes, things are definitely looking up.

I have a really good life.

Some might say I'm spoiled just a bit and I really can't argue with that,
but I just want everyone to know that I appreciate every single bit of my daily experiences and the people who give me their time and who want to share themselves with me because it is they who make my life so wonderfully blessed and from this day forward I will never forget that.

I am truly rich.

I'm also looking forward to:
my evening walk
my daily blog reads
a nap
a relaxing lunch
eating dinner with my husband
clearning out a little clutter: mental and literal
a fresh brewed glass of unsweetened iced tea

Oh, I'm sure I have forgotten lots of things on my list but you get the picture, right?


  1. I hope you have the time of your life!! Can't wait to see all your pictures! Party On!

  2. Oh yes, I get the picture. You're a fine photographer with camera and without. :)

  3. I'm so glad things are looking up for you and your feeling better. Your trip sounds great I hope you have a great time.

  4. I'm so glad things are looking up for you, your trip sounds great I hope you have a great time.

  5. Your vacation sounds wonderful! Have a great time!

    I think living in a state of gratefulness brings even more into our lives to be grateful for.

  6. Wait! You are coming to Phoenix?! Why haven't you contacted me? We really must get together. When? How long are you staying?
