I have some exciting news! We got a puppy last night. He is an Italian Greyhound. We named him Rocco. He is super needy right now but does the funnest things. He loves to be held and likes to be tucked in his blankets like a little kid. We have only had him for a day and hes getting more and more adventurous by the hour. Like me he hates the cold so we make good friends. There are some picture attached of when he was a more puppy and some last night. He insisted that both lucas and I was touching him or he'd start whimpering last night at bed time. I'm sure there will be many more updates.

"You can't stay in your corner of the forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes."--Winnie the Pooh
Even to this day. When I know better. I still think that someone is just going to knock on my door and solve all my problems or the problem of the day. Weather they are stopping by to give me millions of dollars, offer me the best job ever, or the intelligence and wisdom of a man that has lived a full life. What I have learned and know is that people succeed and people accomplish by action. They work and desire. Nothing great has happen to anyone who sits on the couch all day long.
This also works with people. I know I assume peoples' thoughts and perceptions all the time. I miss out on lots of opportunities because of that. I must take action, I must go to them!

I think I have one of the best drives to work- it being that I live in a large city. There is a forest in the middle of Portland and the highway I drive to get to work every day goes right in the middle of it. Because rush hour sometimes makes you go 15 mph I often get to focus on the current season and the beauty of the Earth. We have been having LOTS of rain the last few days and it has cause things to get green every quick as new life is reborn from the death of winter. Today I got to watch the sun literally melt the clouds away. I also get to go through a tunnel and across the tallest bridge in Portland. I decided to take pictures with my phone of the scenery. I am not sure they give justice or if it was plain out safe. enjoy what i enjoy :)

I know this is sorta boring but after months of calls and quotes we finally got the rest of the windows in the house replaced. All but three windows where done when we moved in. I hope that it keeps the house warmer. I've been bustin' by butt in the back yard and hope that it pays off to be much more beautiful this summer. Anything worthwhile takes some work or at least I keep telling myself. It takes me back to the Saturdays working in the yard at home. Now i just need to have some kids to help me do the work :) I'm glad for the Strong work ethic I was raised with. I know it seems surprising since I probably complained the most, but I am better off today because of it.
