Once upon a time I started a blog at blogger then I thought I "needed" TypePad so I went there and then came back here. And then I thought I "needed" WordPress so I did that. Now I'm back here. Why - because I never used all the bells and whistles of WordPress. It's way more than I need for my purposes. So if I can figure out how, I will import my posts from WordPress. If not, I will just start again here. More soon.

27/365 - Winter Sunset

Well, I haven't done a very good job of blogging my photos for this year's Project 365. I just had to post this one! It is one of my all time favorite photos. I only caught it because one of my sons yelled at me to come see the sunset! I grabbed my camera and ran outside. I'm so happy to get this shot after all the bad weather we've had this winter.

If you click on the photo, it will take you to my Flickr page and you can see more of my Project 365 photos including one of the blizzard we had 2 days ago!

5/365 - Not Staring

A rare photo of Monster when he's not staring at me! I had to be very patient to get this shot because he knew I was there. Look for lots of Monster shots as long as it stays so cold outside!

And speaking of being cold outside....we have another Blizzard Warning going into effect tomorrow at noon. The forecast is for 5 to 8 inches of snow with 25 to 35 mph winds. My guess is school will get out early tomorrow with no school on Thursday. At least the days are getting longer and we're getting closer to Spring!

Project 365



1. 1/365 - Sunny in a Box, 2. 2/365 - He Still Stares, 3. 3/365 - Handmade Books, 4. 4/365 – Cold

I have decided to give Project 365 another go. Although I made it through most of the year last year, I did not finish. I did, however, end up with a lot of good photos that I probably wouldn’t have taken otherwise. I also learned more about my camera and post-processing. I do intend to take at least a photo a day but if I miss a day, I’m not going to beat myself up about it.

You can click on the links above to see the photos larger and with longer descriptions.

This is amazing!

My niece and I have been learning the art of bookbinding. So far we've made 12 books. I even gave some as gifts for Christmas! We have been having fun figure out new stitch patterns and binding types and I think this is just the beginning of our adventure. Look for some photos of some of mine in the next day or so.

Happy New Year!

We had a blizzard warning in effect from 6pm last night until 6pm tonight. It WAS a blizzard! I don’t know what the official snow total is but it is somewhere around 12”. Add 4o mph winds to that, and you get this:

and this:

009 copy

and this:

The first two were taken by sticking my head and camera out the door and the last one was taken through a window. It was bitterly cold and I didn’t want to go all the way outside. No school today or tomorrow which made Presten very happy! He even played outside for awhile even though it was so cold. Hopefully we will get the driveway plowed by Friday so that we can go to his program at school. Off to make a warm cup of coffee to keep warm!
