Stairs Dream

Last night I dreamt that I was going up flights of stairs. At each floor I stopped and looked around. Except for dozens of vacuum cleaners on one floor and a library on another, I don't remember much from that part. When I got to the top, I looked out onto the city and started going down the stairs. I remember passing a restaurant on the way down and a lot of apartments.

It was really vivid and I didn't realize I was dreaming so it was hard to wake up from it.

So I looked up the meaning of stairs online:


To dream that you are walking up a flight of stairs, indicates that you are achieving a higher level of understanding. You are making progress into your spiritual/emotional/material journey. It also represents material and thoughts that are coming to the surface.

To dream that you are walking down a flight of stairs, represents your repressed thoughts. It suggests that you are going into your unconscious. It also refers to setbacks that you will experience in your life. If you are afraid of going down the stairs, then it suggests that you are afraid to confront your repressed emotions and thoughts. Is there something from your past that you are not acknowledging.

What are you dreaming about these days?

G & E Favorite Books

Favorite books that I have memorized from being asked to read them so many times!

this one was a recommendation by Ginny Marie at Lemon Drop Pie - she really knows her children's books!

Great Beginning Readers (for Kinder or brilliant younger children)

Akasha and Duke

During Duke's most recent visit, we worked out together - a lot. I'm trying to look good for bikini season - Duke is my trainer. How supportive.

...and while all this working out is going on - 'Kasha is hiding. This fat cat wants nothing to do with anything that resembles physical exertion.

The Wedding, The "Hike" and The Bike Rodeo

My friend AmyClaire got married. She and I have a bond over our (questionably unhealthy) love for food. We get together and totally geek out over the Food Network and share recipes and eat our way into comas. In fact, it is because of her that my popularity rate went up. Thank you for the Dark Chocolate Orange Cheesecake recipe. So, when I got her wedding invitation I jumped at the chance to go. No, not just because I wanted to see what she was serving! Gosh, you are always jumping to conclusions. But the food was superb.
She hails from very fancy folk. So we saddled up our kids in fancy duds.

The best pic I got of Ethan. He's eating.

Gabe and Lorelle

We were supposed to go on a hike at Enchanted Rock. It turned out that everyone had the same idea and the park? Can you believe it? I have never seen a state park at capacity before. They stopped letting people in. Oh well, with that kind of crowd, it probably wouldn't have been much fun. But there I was all decked out in my hiking gear with no where to go.

So we all went to a winery. We were in Fredericksberg anyway. Yes, I was under dressed. No, I didn't care at all after a couple of glasses of wine.

I kept pestering our group to go hiking and this is where they took me. Under a bridge that goes over the Guadalupe Rio. Which is precisely why I prefer hiking in horrible weather. No crowds.

My pestering days are over.

Bike Rodeo at school.

Not so good at the riding in a straight line. There's always next year.
