“Once again, we come to the Holiday Season, a deeply religious time that each of us observes, in his own way, by going to the Mall of his choice.”  Dave Barry

We’re hanging out at the Shasta Mall in Redding, California waiting for Papa G to finish up a morning of business back at the hotel before we head on to San Francisco where Baby Girl’s Mommy and Daddy are anxiously awaiting her return.  We ended up at the Mall because I typed “playground” in to Map Quest, and this is where it instructed me to go.  We ended up just running up and down the open areas as the Playground was full of kids and quite hectic.  She was happy with that though . . . but finally it was break time and snack time.  That’s when I captured this with my iPad.   She’s just chillin’!  

Funny thing is I never go to the Mall anymore, and will avoid it like the plague during the holiday season.  I prefer to either do my gift shopping on-line, or make something that is personal and meaningful.   I just can’t do the crazy crowds anymore.  I didn’t buy one thing here at this Mall – even tho I did do a bit of window shopping.  Everything is either too expensive or just not what I’m looking for.  I would have bought a rain jacket for the Baby if I had found one . . . but could not find a single clothing store that sells them for toddlers.  Weird.  So – maybe I need to design something and get it on the market asap??  Hmmm . . .

I’m spending so much time in the water these days . . . I thought another “wet” shot would be appropriate!  

I’m doing Aqua Aerobics up to five days a week (45 minutes of Deep Water & 1 hour of Shallow Water on M, W, F / 45 minutes of Aqua Bootcamp & 45 minutes of Water Walking on T,Th).   I miss a day here and there.  On those days I hop on the treadmill and do 3+ miles.  I reserve one or two days a week for recovery depending on how I’m feeling.  

In the meantime . . . I think I’m growing webs between my fingers and toes!  

I processed this using Nik Silver Efex Pro 2, and then a bit of tweaking in PS CS6.
