Sister Date Doll

My sisters and I have been having periodic "Sister Dates" they are comprised of doing some craft/art projects together. It's always a great time, laughing and joking and feeding off each others talents. Over a period of I think three sister dates, we made doll bodies, wigs and dressed these 1920 replica boudoir porcelain dolls. I finally got a picture taken of mine. Not a very good quality photo (I took it with my phone and the lighting was not good) but I at least wanted to mark that I had finished her. She is still sitting in my bedroom. I really quite like her.

Hazy Days of Winter

For the past few weeks Utah has had some of the worst air quality in the nation. As a runner this makes it difficult... do I run in the pollution and risk breathing all the bad air, or do I banish myself to run of the treadmill and save my lungs but risk my mental stability. I for one have been running on the treadmill... this has not made happy running times for me. I did get one reprieve, today I went snowshoeing with my running friend and our husbands.
Once you get up above the pollution and in the mountains it is fantastic! Blue sky, sunshine, warmer temps and sparkling snow! Ahhh it was good for my soul to see the blue sky.
We are supposed to get storms this up coming week, lets hope it will clean out our air!

The blue at the top of the pictures I posted is not the sky. I took them while in my car, so that is the top of my windshield.
