Crime Scene Picture


Here's a look at the "branch" which I call a big tree that came back through the fork of our tree to knock my dad off. It's pretty impressive! This will be our task today to tackle the tree and cut it the rest of the way down, and then tomorrow off to Yukon to be with our lumber jack dad!!

Where do I begin?

I know I say life has been busy everytime I have posted it seems, but lately, life has been busy and HECTIC! The busy part was last week, but the hectic part was yesterday! This past weekend we went up to Fairland, OK (farmtown of 600) and celebrated my grandpa's 94th birthday. It was also a family reunion, so it was nice to see all of my cousins as well. My brother got a condo that his work owns out on Grand Lake so all of my family could stay there and had a wonderful time! The trees were turned every color which made an awesome background for pictures, so I ended up taking over 400 pictures! You can see some of them in the link to the right!
Then yesterday happened....
My dad had come by my work on Wed. to ask if he could come over to my house on Thur. and cut down the two trees that we have been meaning to do for a while. I agreed and told him I would check on him at lunch. Well, right before I left for lunch the girls said that he called and I need to call him back. He told me to not leave that he was almost there. When he pulled up he smiled and asked if I could follow him to the dr. office down the street to have his ankle x-rayed. WHAT?? He said he was on the last big branch on the first tree and when it fell, it sprung back up and hit him off balance where he fell 8-10 feet and landed on his ankle. Later he told me that when he sat up, his ankle was off to the side, but popped right back into place so he thought it was ok to hop on one foot and drive to my work. Crazy man. Well, when we got to the dr. office, he didn't realize that you couldn't just walk in to get an x-ray, so we had to go to the ER. So I made him scoot over and drove him to Edmond Hospital. While we were waiting to go back, he suddenly started to get hot and light headed. I went to ask a nurse for a wet wash cloth, and when I came back he told me, "I'm going down." I started to yell for a nurse to help, and by the time the nurse came out to the waiting room, he passed out. Luckily I had put him in a wheel chair to begin with. I wouldn't have been so scared until he started to make weird moans and noises and then started what seemed like to me, convulsing. I was yelling Daddy the entire time trying to get him to wake up. I knew in my mind he was having a stroke or something. Another nurse came out to help b/c we couldn't get his legs up in the wheel chair to take him back. He finally came to when we were wheeling him into the room. They said he was ok, it was just due to him being in shock. Also, it was miraculous that his ankle ended up not being broken. The dr. said he would have bet his whole pay check on it that it was broken, there was no way it couldn't be by the look of it! I should have took him up on that! They said it was a sprain and he probably tore most of the tendons/ligaments in his ankle. So he is now on crutches for a couple weeks. Here is a look at his ankle that I took a picture of last night!
Well, I hope your week is going a little bit better than mine!!! Next week, hopefully it will be stressfree and calm!!! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Until next time...

Happy Birthday to my hubby!

Well, since last time I wrote, a lot has happened, including my husband turning 1 year closer to 30! Work has been going great! We actually recently hired 2 new people! See Melody, it takes two to fill your position!! hehe One girl has already started and one more will start the first of November.
We have also been visiting my parents and catching up with them this past weekend. They just got back from visiting my family in Guatemala for the past 2 weeks. Yes, that's right, I am hispanic even though I look albino!! My grandma was born and raised in Guatemala. Everybody except her have the "dark genes" all nice and tan, and then there is my family!! We actually surprised them on Friday night for a visit and my sister's little boy Finn was there spending the night with them. He has grown a lot and talking up a storm. Here is a video clip to share for those of you who know my sister!!

Like I mentioned before, it was also Luke's birthday last weekend and since I was not in town last weekend along with my parents, we celebrated his birthday last night with my family. I wanted to make him a birthday cake, so Katie Rowten and I got together on Thursday night and made him a birthday cake. It only took us 5 hours to do it!! haha Go Broncos! We went out to Hideaway Pizza and then back to our place for cake and ice cream!!

Today was just a nice day of relaxing when we could and also, well, first before I say this I will tell you, no I am not pregnant. haha But today we did go over to my brothers house and get a baby crib that was my niece's. They have recently moved back from Phoenix and are trying to get rid of all their extra furniture and everything else. I'll put in a quick word for them...they are going to have a huge estate sale next weekend on Saturday and Sunday at their house they are renting right now. If you want their address, just let me know!!! You won't want to miss it!

Well, I've kept you reading long enough....again I apologize for not writing in forever. I know I've taken advantage of all of you cause I check your blogs all the time, but don't write in mine while I'm doing it! So again, my deepest apologies are to you!!! Hope you all have a great stress free week! Until next time...

Busy month is almost over!

Oh shoot....I just typed my post and accidently hit the back button, so now I have to redo this...Well, this crazy busy month is almost over! We have yet to spend one weekend at home this past month, so I'm a little ready for another month to come along. Last week we got to go down to Quartz Mountain Resort for a couple's retreat with my church from back home. What a blessing it was for our marriage! Our marriage will never be the same (for the good!). One fun thing was all the wives got their husbands a gift without them knowing and we put them all together, and the husbands had to go pick out which present he thought was his. Of course Luke picked his present out really quick since they put it up on a hanger above all the gifts. (I got him a nice Denver Broncos polo).
This weekend we are busy with Day in the City today and also my best friend/roommate through college is in town with her husband staying with us. Day in the City went well for us; we went to the Oklahoma City Rescue Mission to help out with their "pantry". I put that in quotes because when we got there, it was actually a warehouse that everything was in bulk and we had to rearrange it all and take inventory. So I definitely got my workout for the weekend and will be quite sore all over! The neat thing is that some of the homeless that live there helped us out.
Work has been crazy lately due to one of the girls being sick and then Melody could only work part time due to her pregnancy. And I just got word that she just got put on permanent bed rest until the baby comes because she is already having contractions regularly and starting to dilate. She is not due until the middle of December so please keep her and her baby girl in your prayers. Also please pray that we can find someone to replace her at work because our work is hectic with only 2 of us there. Well, this is getting long, so I will stop here. Hope you all are having a great weekend! Until next time...

Another busy weekend in the Carnagey household!! Friday night I went to a DC4K meeting after work, which I am totally pumped for!! (Luke didn't go since he's sick) Yesterday, I was determined to get Luke out of bed and get him up and around to help him feel better, so we went to eat breakfast/lunch at Jimmy's Egg. The whole time we were there he said that the room was spinning. So we made a quick trip to Wal-Mart for a couple of things and came back home where he took a 2 hour nap. That hour up wore him out. So, I don't think my goal was achieved! Needless to say, I think he is going back to the dr. on Monday. Last night was my dad's birthday party in Yukon which was a lot of fun! And for today, we are going to try to make it to church, depending on how long Luke can last, and then I'm going to Yukon this evening to spend the night with my parents. Tomorrow, I am headed to Lewisville, TX for Tony Hall's funeral. Tony was an amazing Christian man. Growing up, I went to the camp that he was the director for and later was a counselor for him after high school. Through this life here on earth, we all have those that we look up to and know that we can follow in thier footsteps because they imitate Christ (1 Cor. 11:1). Tony was one of those people for me. He lived everyday like it was his last. He was ready for the day that he could spend eternity with his Savior. God bless Tony Hall! I ask that you all pray for his family that he leaves behind. His wife Jill, and 2 little girls who are 7 and 4.
I'm off to get ready. Hope you all have a great Sunday full of God's blessings as we worship Him. Until next time...

Where to start?!

Well, since the last time I posted a lot has happened. Yes we FINALLY made it to Seattle and had a great time with Luke's sister and her family. You can check out our trip in my pictures. We got to play with their Wii (so awesome!), go to the Seattle Aquarium, the beach, the Pike Place Market, be there for the kids first day of school...(Bella's very first day of kindergarten!), and I also got to meet Luke's mom for the first time. It was very eventful and TONS of fun! It was hard to leave. Of course there was excitement on our plane ride home as well when we were half way to Salt Lake City, the flight attendant came over the speaker and asked if there was a Dr. on board to make their presence known....no response. Then if there was any medical personnel or nurse...no response. So we thought there was someone in first class that was going to die with no help. Luckily that person was fine and we had a relaxing rest of the flight.
This past weekend, Luke and I parted separate ways to join each of our families. I went to Yukon for my mom's side family reunion and to work on scrapbook stuff with my sister. Luke went to Tulsa, where his family from Colorado was visiting and they went to Grand Lake for a day. When we got back on Sunday, we went straight to BK group and had a good time with our friends.
After this was all said and done, Luke started to feel sick yesterday morning, and woke up this morning talking about 2 octaves lower than normal! He went to the Dr. and found out he has a sinus infection, and a bronchial infection that could be strep. So we are taking it easy and I'm trying not to breath much around him!!
This is getting pretty long, so I will close here if you are still reading!!! I probably won't get a chance to write til next week due to another busy weekend! Have a great weekend! Until next time...

Tears and Laughter


Well, I am writing this post in the Dallas/FW airport. it is 5:00 p.m. right now and waiting for our flight at 8:50. Seriously. We are trying to make it to Seattle to go see Luke's sister and her family, but for some reason everything is going against us. We had an hour delay in OKC which they said would make us miss our connecting flight to Seattle, so they took our boarding passes and switched them to another airline which would only put us an hour behind. When we got here, we realized we could have made our original connecting flight, but went to the new gate where they started to board when we arrived. In the middle of boarding, the captain came out and said there was a problem with the plane so we would have to stop boarding and everyone would have to get off the plane. Well, after almost an hour wait, they came back and said our flight was cancelled due to a bird hitting the plane in the previous flight which broke some part of the plane which they could not fix at this time. So all 60 passengers ran off to the ticket counter. When we got to the front of the line, they told us all direct flights for today were full, but we could either go through Oakland or if we ran, we could make a connecting flight to Portland that left in about 10 min. in a different terminal. So, with all of our bags in hand (we did not check any bags in) we took off running. By the time we got to the train stop, there was a sign that said the next train for that terminal would be 8 min. So, with our heads hung low, our backs hurting, we went back to the ticket counter and explained the situation. By this time, I'm in tears. The lady was sooo... sweet and got us first class tickets for a flight going out tonight with food vouchers. To make the day even better, as we went back through security, they looked at our boarding passes and said, "Congratulations, you have been selected to have additional screening, please step to the side." At this point I just started laughing. So, now we are at our gate with a 4 hour delay! The neat thing is that we made some friends with a family who was kind of in the same situation. Well, this is getting really long so I will stop here. I will update later in our trip if I have time. Have a good and safe Labor Day, until next time....

Tea for Three!



This weekend was nice and relaxing. My boss has been out of town, so I got to have all day Friday off!!! It was girls day!! My two close friends from back home Grace and Angie hit the town!! We first went for lunch at Inspirations Tea Room. I was a little curious about this whole tea room to begin with, little too "fru fru" (sp?) for me, but when we got there, we were greeted by a lady whose hair literally stood a foot above her head. Now I know those of you who have been there know EXACTLY who I am talking about. Anyways...when they brought our food out to us I was amazed by the enormous size of sandwiches they had (picture on right...yes, that thing beside the canteloupe!) I for sure didn't think that Angie would finish her sandwich due to the size. But she pulled through!! Needless to say, it was an experience I won't forget!! We did have a good time, and afterwards, we went "shopping". I put that in quotes because everywhere we went, they would find something, carry it around the whole time, and as soon as we were leaving, they both would put what they got back on the shelf! So we saved a lot of money!!!
Today was also nice and relaxing since my boss won't be in til tomorrow, so we didn't see any patients today. Made for a good quiet Monday!! The most scariest thing happened on my way home from work though. I was at a stop light and a boy on a bicycle was going across the intersection right in front of me and the car to my left did not see him coming and when her turn signal light turned green, she took off and hit the boy on the bike. I screamed and so did the girl in the car to the right b/c we both saw what was happening and couldn't stop it. Luckily, the boy was ok, just shookin up, and went on his way. So, moral of the story....ALWAYS look both ways before you cross the street in the car! Well, gotta go finish supper! Hope you all have a great week and remember Brinley, you have to come before Friday!!! Until next time...

Oh Canada!

Sunday night, Luke and I got an awesome surprise. When Luke was 14, he started going to Canada for a mission trip in the summer. He went for about 12 years, so he sort of grew up with some of the kids in Canada. Well, on Sunday night, we had a knock on the door. I knew whoever it was drove a motorcycle (don't know anyone who has a motorcycle), and when I looked through the peep hole, I had no clue who it was, so I ran and got Luke. He didn't recognize him either from the peep hole until he opened the door and yelled "HEY" and gave him a big hug. Ok...so now my husband is hugging some random guy who has a bandana on and drives a motorcycle!! Well, it turns out to be Tim, who is one of the kids from Canada who on a whim decided to come here to go to OC with his younger sister. How cool is that!!! So we went out with him until about 11 that night!!! So much fun! Here is a picture of Luke with Tim, his sister on both sides of Luke, and then Luke's sister Abby, and Jennifer also from Colorado!!
Other than that, not a lot to update about...still busy at work! Waiting for our trip to Seattle!!! Well, I'm off to bed, 9:15, bedtime!!!! Until next time...

God is good!

Today was a great day!!! Luke found out that he got a raise today at work which we have been waiting for. So tonight, we went and celebrated at Red Lobster!! Boy was it good!!! Now we are busy redoing our budget and figuring out how long it will take us now to pay off debt. It's lookin good for the home team!! :)

We also had a fun night last night. We were heathens and went to watch the Redhawks play with the Awtry's! And as you can see from the pic to the right, it was hard to find our seats because the stadium was sooo... packed! The Redhawks did pull through and win. It was a fun game to watch...(a lot better than men's fastpitch softball! hehe) So thanks again to the Awtry's!


Also, this past week, Luke had an encounter with the queen of the killer bees. He told me it was big before he showed me, but I didn't realize it was THAT big. Good honk! I'm glad that he won the battle! Here are a couple pics of Luke and the Queen!





Well, hope ya'll are having a great week! Take care, until next time....

I'm still here

I know it's been a while, sorry to my loyal readers! Life has been crazy and stressful. A lot has happened since last time I wrote. One big thing....we thought we were going to have an oops! (pregnant). But after a stressful waiting period, we got the results back and were negative. The good thing that came out of it is that we now know we are a little closer to being ready when that time does comes! Life at work has been very busy for both Luke and I. We both have had some late nights this past week. But I would rather be busy at work rather than be sitting there bored having nothing to do.
This weekend has been busy as well. This morning I had a baby shower for Kaison Hobbs and I went straight from there to Yukon for a wedding at 2 which I was the guest book person. I finally got home at 5 and got to relax and swim for a little while. Tomorrow we have Brother's Keepers at our house, so we need to spot clean our house and get all the food ready for that. The good thing is that we don't have that much to clean since we did a lot of that last weekend. And also if you know my husband you would know why it's not that dirty!! :) haha
Luke had a great day today as well. He went over to a friends house early this morning and watched both of the first Bourne movies, and then went to the theater to watch Bourne Ultimatum. It is a really good movie! I would recommend it if you haven't seen it yet. Well, this post is getting long, so I will close. I promise to do better in the future of updating!!! Until next time...

Not a lotta

Well, not a lot going on here. Our pool is up and running, so we have been swimming A LOT!! We swam all weekend and got to experience my nephew swim for the first time! There are some pictures in my link of his experience! Little hesitant at first, but by the end he was splashing around and laying on his stomach tryin to swim. Well, not really anything else to report...just same ole working, eating, swimming, and sleeping!! Hope you all have a great week!! Until next time...

What a week

Well, it has been a busy, fun, sick kind of week. Friday night and all day Saturday I spent working on baby gifts and a baby book for Kristy's shower, which personally I think turned out awesome!!! Sunday, we had church and then Kristy's baby shower that afternoon, and I wasn't feeling very good that evening. I woke up Monday feeling miserable, couldn't breath out of my nose, my lymph nodes were swollen so much you could actually see them, and my ears were bothering me, so of course on my day off, I spent part of it at the dr. Ends up I have a throat infection, oh boy!! So now takin medicine for 10 days, but I'm feeling ok right now. At work, it's been pretty good. Boss is out of the office all week, which means, we get to clean the office!! So the last 2 days I've been a cleanin machine! OH! Before I forget, our pool is actually clear now!!! After about 20 something pounds of shock, it finally killed the algae and now is almost ready to swim in again! We plan on swimming a lot Saturday to get our moneys worth!! So, if it's sunny and you are hot, come on over and take a dip with us!! Well, I'm going to put a few new pics up on my link and hit the hay (yes I know it is only 7:20!). Have a great rest of the week! Until next time....

Been a While

Well, it has been a while since I have updated. Not a lot of things have happened. Just really busy at work this week. We are also trying to fix our pool. It has been green ever since the big rain. After an overall total of 22 lbs of shock, 32 oz. of algae killer, putting new sand in our sand filter, it has yet to become clear. Last night, Luke got brave and got in the pool to vacuum it out really well and scrub the bottom again. We are now waiting for results. We asked the pool guys about it and they said we have to keep shocking it till it kills the algae. So we are watching closely and keep adding shock. So pray that soon it will become clear again so we can actually enjoy it this summer since we have put so much money into it.
This is also a long weekend for us. My boss is out of the office all next week, so each of us are taking a day off next week and I chose Monday so I can have a nice long weekend, and Luke decided to take it off too. So we are planning on a nice relaxing long weekend with hopefully no falls, busted windshields or flat tires!!! :) Hope you all have a great weekend! Until next time...

USA Softball and BK

This weekend is full of fun events going on. We got a call early Saturday morning from Kevin who works with Luke who had tickets to the USA softball tournament, so we decided to go at the 3:00 game which was USA vs. Japan. We were so excited since I love watching it on TV and have wanted to see a game in person. Before we went to the game, we went to see the new Harry Potter movie which was really good. As we made our way into the stands at the game and took our seats, something didn't feel right. As we looked closer at the field we noticed that the players were not of the female gender. The teams however were USA and Japan. We got our tickets out and looked a little bit closer at them and realized that our game was marked ACS and not World Cup. Who knew that there was a mens fastpitch softball national team? Even though it wasn't the women's team, we still had a good time. I did get to see the USA women's team from a far as they were getting out of their bus. Here are a few pics I took, and always remember to read the fine print!!

After the game we went over to Scott and Rachael's house for BK groups for dinner and games. We had a great time and got to know each other better by using toilet paper!! (number of sheets, number of things you tell about yourself) Here are a few pics...

Hope you guys have a great week! Until next time...

Martina McBride & Little Big Town!!!

We had an awesome night last night!! As you can see from the title, we got to go to the Little Big Town/Martina McBride concert! It was AMAZING!! They put on a great show! I would love to see Martina everytime she comes to OKC. Our seats were floor seats, which was great, but the only thing I'm disappointed about was my pictures. With all the random lighting in the arena, it was hard to get any clear pictures, but here is some proof that we were really there!!!






My sister and bro-in-law got seats right behind us which made it entertaining as well! Here are some autographed souveniers and t-shirt we got from the concert...


I shot some video and there are a couple more pictures in my link to the right that you can check out as well! Well I'm off to an eventful Friday night with my family! Until next time...

It's been a while

Well, sorry it has been a few days since I have posted anything. Life has been busy these last few days. Monday I went to the chiropractor for my back and that went well. He also did some treatment on my wrist that I fell on since it has been bothering me. He said he thinks I did some damage to some ligaments, so he did some laser treatment which has seemed to help. Then Tuesday and tonight we have been babysitting at the church. Our bible class is in charge of a VBS at the inner-city church in Oklahoma City, so we are babysitting the kids in our class. We have had fun getting to know them better! Well, tomorrow night is an exciting night, so stay tuned and I will post soon and hopefully have some pics!!! My bed is calling me, so I shall be polite and answer!!! Until next time...

Finally....a relaxing day!!

Well, the relaxing day finally came!!! We started by getting up around 10 a.m., that's right! I actually slept in today!! We then went to Corban's 2nd b-day party which was Thomas the Train and had lots of fun!! Here are some pictures...



After the b-day party, we came home to relax for a while, and then we were off to see the Oklahoma City Yard Dawgz play some football! We really didn't know what to expect, but we actually had a really fun time and are thinking about tickets for next season. We got to sit 5 rows up from the field at the end zone, so we were right there in all the action. One lesson I did learn is that if we have any boys in the future, football will only be something we watch, not play!! One guy got hit so hard I swore I saw birds flying above his head when he got up! His helmet literally flew 10 feet when he got hit! We want to say thanks to Kevin and his wife (Luke works with Kevin) for the tickets! We had such a great time!!! Here are some pics from the game...


There are more pictures of our fun day, just go to my link of pictures to see the rest and also some videos!!! Until next time...

It's Friday!!!!!!



Even though I only had to work 2 days, I'm so ready for the weekend. I felt like I needed another vacation after taking the first part of this week off to actually enjoy a couple of days off!! My thumb/wrist is feeling better, it gets a little sore towards the end of the day just because I am using them more now at work. Here is a quick peek at my shin that took part of the fall as well...
Well, I've been so proud of myself for keeping up with this blog thing so far! I can't let myself or my readers down now!! Tomorrow is going to be a busy, fun filled day. We're going to Corban's b-day party in the morning, and then we got free tickets to go see the Yard Dawgs (arena football) play tomorrow night. I have never been to an arena football game before, so this will be interesting to say the least!!! Personally I don't know who would ever call their football team the Yard Dawgs, but who asked me?!!! So, I will have some pics up sometime of our eventful day!!! Oh, speaking of pics...there are some new pictures in my link of last weekends campout/in with my family. We were suppose to go the lake to camp, but with all the rain, it ended up at my parents house, so enjoy!!! Well, we are off for the night, not sure what we're doing, but something fun!! Until next time...

Our new lil pal

Last night, Luke found a little bird in our backyard. As I got closer I realized that one of his wings looked broken. I put some gloves on and picked him up. I lightly tossed him in the air, but he just came tumbling down. So now we are watching him, and Luke is even trying to feed him worms. Here are a couple of pics of our new lil pal!


Tuesday, July 3, 2007

The crazy vacation continues...

Well, I got up this morning and went to the dr. Good news, it's not broken, bad news it will only take time to heal. I have pulled and possible tore my muscles and tissue of my thumb. That's why it hurts when I use it. So, doc said to keep icing it and taking an anti-inflammatory and it will get better over time.

On to the jeep...Luke went to get a new tire on the jeep since it had a flat and he found out that @ Firestone they did not have the right size of tire since our tires were Goodyear before, so we would have to buy all 4 tires for $300 or go down the street to Goodyear and get 1 tire for $200. Now let's do the math here....therefore, we have 4 brand spankin new tires on our jeep! And after he was done there, he came home to meet the guy for the new windshield. So now our jeep looks pretty new now!!! Not excited about the total amount we had to spend on everything, but it's new!!!

Well, supper is waiting so I must go now. Until next time...

Bad Start

Well, today is my first day of vacation and it did not go as planned. It all started this morning when I went out into the garage to get something out of the car and as I stepped down to move toward the light switch, I forgot that a huge plastic tub had been placed between me and the light switch 3 feet away. Therefore, I hit the tub, fell over the tub landing on my wrist/thumb and hip, hitting my face against the side of the tub and my leg scraping all the way down the tub onto the floor where I finished just to the side of the car. Now I have a nice goose egg on my shin, a bruise right below my left jaw and a bruised and possibly broken left thumb. I called the dr. to get in today but he had no openings until tomorrow morning, so he said I could come then or go to the ER. Well, I know if I go to the ER it will cost the arm and leg that I hurt plus sitting there for who knows how long, so I am just toughening it out for the day. I can move my thumb, it just hurts when I do and if pressure is applied. I have broken my right hand before not knowing since I could move it, so I don't want to just let it be incase it is broken. So... that is how the day started.

Then, as Luke and I were traveling down the interstate, a huge dump truck hawling rocks decided to throw one of its rocks at us and busted our windshield. So now we have a guy coming out tomorrow to give us a new windshield.

Now doesn't that sound like a great relaxing vacation!! Well, I'm off to start some supper or I may just call and order in food to finish off this stressful day!!! Until next time....

Let's Try This Again!

Well, I tried this once a while back, but only after 2 posts it sort of went down hill. I will try to do a lot better this time!

Well, life has been crazy busy around here with work and doing things here around the house. It seems like the to do list never ends. As soon as we mark one thing off, another thing is put on. We finally got our yard to actally look like a yard instead of a huge mud pit. We also did some landscaping with the flower beds and also around our pool with river rocks so we won't track dirt into the pool. I will post some pictures later since they aren't on this computer.

Well, lately I have felt like Noah's wife with all of this rain. I think this is the 19th day in a row that we have had rain. Not just sprinkle here and there, but pouring down rain. I'm thinking I might need to start getting some wood together to build a boat! I really wouldn't mind all of this rain, but it's just that as soon as we got our pool up and running it started raining and hasn't stopped. We have had to drain our pool twice so it won't overflow and try to keep the water more blue than green!

Well, now that I have made a good start, I don't want to bore all of you, so I will go now. Until next time...
