WNBA here she comes !!

I know I've been lacking in my posts lately and my picture taking has been very boring and non-creative, but I am just in a lull right now. My mind feels jumbled with thoughts of way too much and I honestly can't seem to shut my brain down. It'll pass, it always does and I should be back to my old self. Now on to the basketball..
Saturday was Emma's 3rd Upwards game, but unfortunately I had to work. No biggie. I knew I'd miss some games because of Saturday work. We just opened a new location and I asked to be moved because it's much closer to home. It requires working extra weekends to get it up and running...ok, I'm rambling.
Anywho, when I left for work Saturday morning I just had a feeling Emma would make a basket in her game. She has made a few during practice, but I just knew she'd get one in today. The game started at 10am and at about 10 minutes after 10, I picked up my cell phone waiting for James to send me a text message saying Emma made a shot. No sooner did I think that, the phone rang and it was my mom. As soon as I heard her voice, I knew it had happened. She made a bucket !!! Not only did she make one, she took the ball from a player on the other team and made one ! I was so excited for her. I was a little disappointed that I missed it, but excited all the same. I got reports from several people, and everyone said her confidence level shot up afterwards. I'm so proud of her. Obviously I'm partial because she's my kid, but she is the only girl on the team. She's the smallest and the youngest and she's never played sports of any kind. So this is VERY exciting for me. After I got home from work I learned that not only did she make one basket during the game, she made two !!! If I remember the story right, James said she dribbled the ball to the goal and shot and missed, but it was the wrong goal ! She got her ball and dribbled all the way to the other court and made her basket. Very cool.

Mom snapped a few shots for me.....Here's the pre-game warm-up......

Sometimes us gals just have to stop to fix our hair, which by the way, James got her ready for the game and fixed her hair. I thought she looked very cute. Didn't he do such a great job?

Post game snacks, stars, and love for the coah. I'm a little sweet on him myself.
She plays at 11am this coming Saturday and I'm hoping to see one of her game day baskets!

Thrice - Silver Wings

Check it out....

Silver Wings

From tender years you took me for granted
But still I deign to wander through your lungs
While you were sleeping soundly in your bed,
(Your drapes were silver wings, your shutters flung)

I drew the poison from the summer's sting,
And eased the fire out of your fevered skin.
I moved in you and stirred your soul to sing;
And if you'd let me I would move again.

I've danced 'tween sunlit strands of lover's hair;
Helped form the final words before your death.
I've pitied you and plied your sails with air;
Gave blessing when you rose upon my breath.

And after all of this I am amazed,
That I am cursed far more than I am praised.

And after all of this I am amazed,
That I am cursed far more than I am praised.

You figure it out....

Cool cars

Tonight we went to Atascocita and every Saturday night, local folks get together to show off their cars and trucks. They are mostly all classics, but there were a few new ones that had been gussied up.

Probably my favorite. If I was able to have any car in the world it would probably be an old Impala, convertible of course. Dark purple with white interior and a white top. We can all have fantasies can't we !

After seeing a lot of cool cars "Emma saw this and said "Now that's what I'm talking about!" A white limousine belonging to Wazabi sushi bar in the strip center next to where the car club was. At least she knows what she likes :)


For those of you who have been asking, I've finally started uploading some pictures to my Flickr account for your viewing pleasure. Just click on the slide show at the top of this page and look away !!!
