four lovely women...

My four favorite women live around the country and every Monday they send me a snapshot from their little corner of this wonderful world. This is what's going on with them...

Seattle, WA - my daughter
"A fun afternoon at the Pacific Science Center"


Sedona, AZ - my mother
"The winter light on my breakfast plate"


Aliso Viejo, CA - my friend
"Shopping at South Coast Plaza"


St. Augustine, FL - my cousin
"Chilly weather means the projects get done inside"


Let's all have a great week.

I'm starting it off with a bang.  I just won a neat looking book over at VildesVerden. - thanks Vilde!!

Congrats on the win. The Pacific Science center looks like it would make a great field trip for a 5th grade class! Happy Monday! XX

Maria said...

Wow! These are AMAZING this week! The colors, the light.....gorgeous!
K - I want to have breakfast with you! That would make a beautiful oil painting!
Pam - I am such a SUCKER for stained glass!
MJM - imagine the fun we would have with the dynamic duo at that science center!! Love the background wall - is it a window, a mural? I love that I can see the statues silhouette in the glass!

Happy Monday everyone!

Have I told you lately that I LOVE your 4 lovely women!??

I have to say, the Science Center is definitely more for little kids, but that didn't stop us from having a great time! Happy Monday!

Congrats on your win! Like father like daughter!
The Science Center looks awesome! A 'science' girl must love that place!
Wonderful stained glass at the shopping center.
I have had many of those projects in the past! Some quite daunting but still a feeling of accomplishment.
Maria, those breakfasts are only on my plate when I eat out! My usual is puffed Kashi with soy milk or almond milk, blueberries and dried cranberries.

Congratulations! A win is always a great start to the week. My husband is making chili, I just made some lemon curd and we're stocking up for the promising storm ahead. I love the picture of the light on the breakfast plate! So dramatic!

I like that winter light on the yummy breakfast- I have never been to the Pacific Science Center but it looks like it would be a fun place to visit- I am sold- it's on my list now.
