You Capture - things that start with L

Wednesday, February 23

Well I just got back from five nights in Cabo (and it was awesome), but I totally forgot about L words. I was just working on my photos from the trip and found a few even if they are in Spanish.

La luz (light) de la luna

You Capture - Warm

Sunday, February 20

I know this is late and I have a lot of warm photos from here in Cabo, but no way to get them online.  So here is one I took while packing, which gave me warm thoughts. Thank you family  & friends for letting me go on vacation!!

Happy Valentine's Day! Belated

Did you notice Kyla's new glasses?

Kevin and I recently got his and hers laptops so I thought this poem was appropriate.

Since My Valentine Got A Computer

Since my Valentine got a computer
My love life has taken a hit.
Nothing I say is important
Unless it’s a byte or a bit.

Before she got her new laptop,
Everything was just fine;
Now she says we can’t talk
Unless we both go online.

"But honey," I said, "I’m attached to you;
Love is what I feel."
"That keyword isn’t relevant,"
She said, with eyes of steel.

She clicked the keyboard furiously;
The screen was all she could see,
And then to my horror and shame,
She started describing me:

"Your motherboard needs upgrading;
Your OS needs help, too.
And you definitely need a big heatsink
To cool your CPU."

"Don’t flame me, my sweet," I pleaded.
"Not on Valentine’s Day."
"Fix the bugs, and I’ll see," she said,
While looking at me with dismay.

"What ever you want, my darling;
Whatever you need; you call it.
I’ll upload or download anything,
And then I’ll go install it."

(Her hostile CD keeps replaying,
And though I don’t want to fight her,
Is this what I want for a Valentine?
I’ve been burned; can I rewrite her?)

"Are you all hard drive now," I asked
"Is there no software in you?
Don’t you remember the good times?
Let our memories see us through."

"LOL," she said to me, chuckling.
"You’re nothing but adware.
"I’ve got four gigs of memory;
I’ve got no problem there."

"Please, honey, we can save it," I said.
"Our love means more than that."
"That’s not in my cache; we’re going to crash,"
She said, as she turned me down flat.

(This woman has really changed;
Do I really want to chase her?
More and more I’m thinking
It might be nice to erase her.)

"Aw, honey, don’t talk like that," I said.
"Can’t we just plug and play?
I hereby accept default,
And I’m yours, my love, come what may.

My goal is to make you happy;
I want to be your portal,
But your sudden, distant coldness
Would test the strongest mortal.

If we need a brand new interface,
So we can FTP,
I’m your go along, get along guy,
And I want you to stay with me."

"If you want to get into my favorites," she said,
And you want to get past my encryption,
If you want to get through my firewall,
Here is my only prescription."

"First, put up your own Web site,
And e-mail me when it’s done.
I’ll check your page rank with Google,
And tell you if you’re the one."

My life has become a real trial,
Since my Valentine got a computer.
If I want her to care about me again,
I guess I’ll have to reboot her.

You Capture - Cold & Red

Thursday, February 10

It really hasn't been too cold here lately, but the fog makes it look cold.  

Here are a couple of Red shots from last week.  This heart was in better shape before the cat starting chasing it around the house.

For more Cold visit Beth's Blog.

Her future is becoming clear

Tuesday, February 8

Did you guess it?

No, she is not becoming a cyborg.  That is Kyla by the way.  She just found out yesterday that she needs glasses.   I took her to pick out her frames today and she is unhappy that it will take a whole week to the the lenses made.  I'm just glad that we figured it out before some vision screening at school - makes me feel like a better mom.

You Capture - Happy

Saturday, February 5, but pretend it's January 27.  That's when I was supposed to post these pics.  

Here are my girls (tallest crane and crouching tiger - I know those names are not totally right, but don't correct me) happy after going to a free Saturday class with their Kung Fu cohorts.    
 Then out to dinner at the Old Spaghetti Factory.

 I'm happy that some people don't rush to take down Christmas lights after new years.  
And that I found the first sign of Spring.
