The most wonderful thing has happend...

...we have HI SPEED (well ... higher speed) out here in Pipe Creek!!! :D I'm so frickin' excited, I could cry. The past year has been rough to say the least. I mean, who would of thought we'd ever hear the ridiculous dial up sound ever again? Anyway, just wanted to write a quick post, because I CAN! :)

I'll post more and SOON!

p.s. I posted more freeze pics on my Flickr site (again, because I CAN!)

Taken around 5pm - The sleet has been steady for about 4 hours now. Another day at home? Let's hope not - I'm going stir crazy....

It's FREEZING here....

...literally! An "arctic blast" (according to the overdramatic newscasters) has made it's way to South Texas and has stranded most of us at home. We are under watch until tomorrow at noon. Hopefully I'll be able to get to work tomorrow, I really can't afford the time off. Thought I'd share some pictures with everyone. Keep it warm!

Yada, Yada, Yada....

It's been awhile since I've posted a decent blog - Okay, fine, it's been months since I've posted a decent blog, but for once, life has been busy for the 'ole Colleen - and that's saying alot. The past year was definitely a major step outside of my comfort zone. While there were some difficult times, I recommend for everyone to try it if you haven't done so already.

My outlook on 2007 is nothing but hopeful. My list of "to-do's" was sidelined for awhile last year, but I've already managed to kill 2 of them nine days into the new year. It feels awesome! My annual ski trip is coming up at the end of February and the snow forecast for Ruidoso(NM) is more optimistic than last year at this time! Jeff's sister was engaged over the Christmas holidays and I hear that wedding bells may be sometime this spring on a beach in the Caribbean. Hopefully, we'll be able to make it. Only time, and finances, will tell.

More wedding bells will be ringing on October 20th, when my oldest friend Kelli ties the knot to her fiance, Rick. She's got a lot of work ahead of her - trying to plan a wedding in San Antonio via Minnesota - but she know she need only ring and I'm on the job! Kelli and Rick also plan on digging themselves out of a Minnesota winter long enough to submerge themselves in more snow in Ruidoso, as they will be joining our ski-festivities in February. I cant' wait!

Alas, due to hectic scheduling, many of my friends were not able to join us for our annual snow surf, but, they are planning their own trip the weekend before mine. I've deemed them the scouting crew, if you will, and ask for a full trail report when they return mere days before our departure.

That's it for now, my friends and family, until the next time - which should be sooner than later.

Happy 2007 .
