Our Beautiful World 57 ~ Time


is the word this week at

I took this in Grafing, Germany last year, where I spent some great TIME with my girlfriend Ann

we walked around the town, every shop is so cute and pretty...

and German bakery is so delicious

and I can't forget the TIME we spent by the stream, Ann, Dolce and I!

Alright, I better sign off before my cell phone burn out, using a cell phone hot spot to get connection isn't the best thing. We are leaving Mesa, CO later today, hopefully get home tonight, "see" you soon! 

for now, hop over to

and check out the wonderful work of the team

PTI Make it Monday #173 ~ No Outline Watercolor

The Challenge:

I am so not happy with the result, I guess like Heather said, it just need a lot of practice


Reports from Mesa, Colorado

We took off last night, drove half way and made a stop at Beaver, UT, so we have less to drive this morning.... 

Like many other times, the route to Colorado is beautiful

I brought Papi big pillow and he is feeling cozy there...

he is such a good traveler, never give any problem, sleep when he is tired

and then getting cozy at the lodge, I have to bring a lot of stuff like bringing a baby, see his tough guy pillow there? but it is all worth it, he get adjusted to new places really well. I left him in the lodge alone when we went out for dinner and the wedding rehearsal, didn't put him in the crate, he didn't make any mess, went to his pee pad to do all his business. I came back once just to check on him, he was just sitting on the couch waiting for us to return, 

as usual, Papi won't eat when we are not "home". When we came back to the room, he finish up his dinner and then go into his crate to pick up a piece of treat I left there for him earlier before we leave the room, how sweet is that, he knew to finish his dinner before he can have his treat, isn't Papi a darling boy? Now he climb up on the couch for a post! : ) I just love this little guy!

that is the view out of our lodge and the gift basket I prepared for the guest at the wedding, show you details some other time.

oops, internet is not easy here though, better sign off with my phone!

*Edit - my post for Our Beautiful World should supposed to be up Sunday 7/27 at 12 AM (EST), but I am having very limited internet connection here at Mesa, CO, and of course, I thought I pre-scheduled it before leave home, but nah.... I just got caught up with so many things and can't remember, I will post it when I get home, for now, please visit my team
