Smore (no not that kind)

March 01, 2018  •  2 Comments
We are still frozen solid here but it is slowly showing signs of spring - at least indoors. My spring cactus has set out to blooming like mad so I took the opportunity to do some more macro work. The flocks of small birds have been missing the last few days. Not sure why but I am still enjoying the nuthatches and the few chickadees that are showing...

Macro Madness

February 17, 2018  •  2 Comments
So in addition to no less than 4 dog training classes (online) I am taking - well okay, I'm saving 3 of them and actively working on one, I signed up on a whim for an online macro photography class as well. That I just finished and honestly, how else should I be getting through these dreary winter days (not much sunshine recently) when it is too co...

Never Ending Winter

February 16, 2018  •  3 Comments
So my bird feeders are still very busy, except I noticed on some days. Those I have discovered, only by a brief glimpse, that there is a small bird of prey hanging around. Now I know I had a shrike here years ago taking out some of the small birds but this bird has been so quick that I've not even caught enough of a glimpse to figure out what it is...

All I have to do is mention I've not had the cameras out and the sunset gives me a reason. I watched the storms roll down the south mountains all day while I got sunshine (love that) and in the end I stepped out on the deck and got these to share.....I love where I live! First ones as you can tell were before sunset and the others just as the sun w...

Winter Memories

Okay I'm cheating because I don't want to get out of the jive doing my blog but honestly haven't been out with the camera to be honest. While I've been walking with Epic - the neighborhood is rather the same day to day right now and the other mileage I do on the treadmill. So I did some digging around and am going to share some previous years photo...

Frisbees, Frost and Sunbeams

January 16, 2018  •  1 Comment
This boy (Epic) makes me laugh almost every day. Yesterday it was fairly warm out and he had located one of his missing rubber balls in the car when we ran errands. After snarfing down dinner he went up back and spent 45 minutes playing with it, letting it roll into footprints and then digging it out. Meanwhile we take every chance we can to get in...

January Centered

January 13, 2018  •  2 Comments
I will say I am not disappointed that January is 1/2 over. It really is kind of a blah month in my mind and I've always figured if winter is tough, once I hit Valentine's Day, it is all downhill. Not that we won't have more "winter" but there is an end in sight. January just seems to be ALL winter and while I do enjoy the snow and cold, by the end...

A Warming Trend

January 09, 2018  •  3 Comments
We have had 40s here for a few days and boy has that helped my attitude and everyone's driving! The last of my holiday visitors left this morning and I am kind of sad about that (the dogs are seriously sad). So just a few more photos to share with you on this warm, pre-next-storm day!
