Blogger has apparently done an update that makes posting one's picture easier than it used to be. The photo is a cropped version of a picture taken by DBF's sister when she and her husband visited in October during Balloon Fiesta. Here's the whole thing:
This was at Sandia Peak, near the High Finance restaurant. Yes, wildlife is on the mountain, which rises just east of the Albuquerque city limits. Mountain lions, bears, and coyotes--oh my!! Yes, I'm truly living in the Wild West! And on a sewing note, I made the fleece jacket I'm wearing in the picture.
As for me, life has been unsettled lately. My boss/mentor moved to a different department and his former boss is handling things until a new department manager is hired. Oy!!! Let's just say that he loves his reports and metrics.
I had a nice day yesterday. I took my little SUV to the dealer for a checkup and ran into a former boss in the waiting room. That was fun! I haven't seen him for years, and it was neat to catch up with him. Then I went shopping and bought some new jeans. Amazingly, I fit into a 6 now. Lest you all say it's all vanity sizing, I fit into a size 10 of the same brand back in November (and was thrilled at the time). Plus, Kohl's had incredibly low markdowns and I picked up some spring items too. I find it difficult to pass by a cute top for $3.50 and other similar deals. Retail must really be suffering these days to offer such ridiculously low prices. I got a couple pairs of capris, a pair of shorts, a couple of tank tops and a skirt in addition to 2 pair of jeans.
I also got a "look" in traffic. OK, this is petty and vain. So what, it's nice to have a youngish guy give a wink and a smile while waiting for a traffic light! Even if it's just B.S., ok?!?
