lazy weekend in progress

photos by Elaine A. Russell

Yesterday I had to take in my SmartCar for a check-up. I have had it over a year now, and put about 17,000 miles on it (mostly due to the cross country trip this summer). Since getting the car last July... it has been a wild ride. I love my car.

This weekend is (hopefully) going to be a quiet one. Seems like I have been sooo busy for sooo long... and with too much emotional upset... that I feel like I just need to step off the merry-go-round for a turn or two.

Thursday would have been my sister's birthday. She would have been 56. I miss her. I know she is in a better place, and I would not wish her back to be sick and spending her days in pain. But I do miss her sweet smile, her words of encouragement, her intelligent insight into so many things.

Photos for today were taken at SmartCenter in ABQ... where I got my wonderful little car :)
