What's on your Workdesk Wednesday?

Well, on my workdesk this week are a few items. I just finished decorating my hubbys diamond steel manly man mailbox for Valentine's Day and a few scrapbook projects. Last Wednesday, my day got completely past me with Doctor apointments all week long. I didn't get too much of a break. This morning as the house is waking up to the Sunrise in Vegas, it is cold. Cold for Vegas, of course! Right now it's 25 degrees and the high for today is supposed to be 45. My bones ache from the cold. I'm a tin man who needs warmth  to loosen up my bones and joints. That is sad for a 40 year old, huh? I am one that goes to bed early and tries to wake up early. I did say,"try to get up early". Some days I'm up at 6 and others by 7am. My aching hands and fingers don't thrill at me typing on the computer. They are begging me to stop moving and want to turn rigid cold like sitting at an old piano with my fingers just barely over the keys frozen in time. Hopefully by 10 o'clock they will stop hurting and relax a bit. As I am typing this quick note, it is taking me a lot longer to type with short breaks in between thoughts and comments to the pain and stiffness in my fingers. If this is what "getting old" means, then I would like to wait for a bit, if time permits me?
I am so grateful for my small group of friends who follow my blog. I am grateful for you taking the time to read my posts and look at some pictures. I appreciate you leaving comments. It helps me to keep being creative and share bits and pieces about me to you in hopes that someday I will have helped someone. Given some inspiration or atleast be remembered at some moment in  time through your busy life.

Did I miss last week or what?

Hi friends!
Last week went by so fast for me! Due to Doctor appointments I really didn't have time to do anything!
My hubby decided Friday afternoon that we should go up to BrianHead Ski Resort located in Utah just about 3 hours from Vegas. They were having a great deal! Lift pass, snowboard & boot rental and an hour and a half snowboarding class. My son and his best friend Lauren, my hubby and I left for the ski resort early in the morning (I am NOT a morning person).  We got everyone set up ready to go and off they all went to try snowboarding and leaving MOM to hang out in the semi-small lodge. This was actually the first time I felt left out. But, due to having extensive back surgery, there was no way I was going to let boo-koo-bucks of titanum steel go down the drain. (Pouting Moment)
Like I said, this was the first time I ever felt left out since having my back surgery. I am an avid tomboy and love all sports. I have never snowboarded before and wish I could of participated with part of my family for this fun outing.
The weather was just perfect and Brianhead is a pretty big resort. We decided that we would stay at Navajo Lodge ski/snowboarding/tubing division of Brianhead. If you want to check it out, click on . For just over 4 hours of snowboarding, my hubby (who hasnt skied since 1998) decided that his body could just not hack snowboarding anymore! TeeHee Now, for the record, I reminded Billy numerous times prior to him grabbing a seat on the lift. He's not 21 anymore and he has changed quite a bit! lol  He was practically born at the ski resorts. He learned to ski at the age of 4 by a father who enjoyed skiing too and would take Billy once a week. My hubby is/was an excellent skier back in his younger years. Okay, I think I rambled enough for this post, but I will post some pictures of these fabulous, talented, awesome, undefeatable snow boarders! teehee ha ha ha
Enjoy these few pics (3) and I hope you will stop back by Peots3Ps again!
Look at this sky. Absolutely a fabulous day at the slopes
