2010 Olympic Torch in Halifax

I think it just took me over 30 minutes to figure out how to upload a video to youtube so that I can embed it here.  Ah well, but I did it...I think.



The Vancouver 2010 Olympic Torch Relay was in my city...right by my apartment building in fact.  I didn't know this until moments before and in my excitement during the taking of the video I didn't realize how much I was shaking the camera around, but this was really neat to see in person. It's not everyday the Olympic Torch comes for a visit. 

I watched most of the days events live online and couldn't seem to pry myself away from the computer long enough to get anything else accomplished but hey, it's only one day.

I'm Back :)

I finally got my computer back and it is all fixed up.  Still trying to get it back the way I like it but right now I'm just glad it's back.  Thank goodness it was still under warranty.  I hope to get back to posting soon, but right now I can't even seem to stay caught up on reading blogs and emails.  I don't know how you all do it.  You may have (or not) noticed I had computer access while my computer was being repaired...but it just wasn't the same.

Operation Beautiful

I know I've been absent a lot lately, it's because my computer is still being repaired.  I have had access to a computer so some of you may have noticed I'm still attempting to keep up on emails, facebook, and commenting on the occassional blog. 

Today though, I really wanted to take the time to post about a site that I've been trying to check almost daily.  I don't think I could even begin to express in words how much I love this site.  It's called Operation Beautiful. I swear, every time I look through it at least one of the pictures or stories gets my eyes misty...but in a good way.  It makes me feel happy and inspired and I just love the message that it spreads.

Have you come across any operation beautiful posts in your daily life?  I haven't...yet.  Have you posted any of your own out there for the world to see?  Again, I haven't...yet.  But I love the idea so much that one of these days I'm going to get a post-it notepad and start spreading the word about how beautiful you are!
