My inspiration

Posted by & filed under my life, photography.

Well, it’s been a year, and I haven’t done much with this site. I really spent most of last year just “being” with my friend Deb, who was battling cancer. She lost that battle in October, but at one point she told me that if she got better she wanted to be a photographer. We… Read more »

Early morning

Posted by & filed under my life.

It’s early morning and I reluctantly get out of bed.  It’s hard to leave the warmth on these cold winter mornings.  But I do it because I know what I will be feeling soon rivals the warmth of the bed.  It will fill my senses, boost my spirits and, besides that, make my dog very,… Read more »

Church on Sunday

Posted by & filed under faith, my life.

After reading Common Sense and feeling like this world is headed towards a train wreck, I flew home on Sunday with a window seat and no one beside me.  The clouds were absolutely incredible.  There were wispy clouds that looked like layers of cotton candy.  There were cumulus clouds that looked like bunches of cotton… Read more »

Here’s how it happened: I decided I wanted to make a healthy version which means I substituted walnut oil for butter then I made my roux with flour – white… Read more »

My rolling gate

Posted by & filed under my life.

We fenced in our garden this year.  I’m loving it!  The dogs can no longer run through, and there’s something about a white picket fence that just screams quaint. We had one problem though.  My husband couldn’t figure out how to get the gate to work the traditional way.  The support just wasn’t strong enough. … Read more »

A Ferrari Weekend

Posted by & filed under my life.

I really never realized JUST how big a deal cars are to guys until this weekend, when my husband got to drive a Ferrari. It’s just for the weekend. But man, what attention that car gets. I never even knew what a Ferrari looked like. It just looks like a nice red sports car. But… Read more »

He’s all grown up

Posted by & filed under my life.

Shhhhh. First off, don’t tell him I posted this picture. He’ll probably never pose for me again if he finds out. But he looks so grown up and I just couldn’t help myself. My one and only son. Graduated from college. I’m very proud of him. Now, does anybody know of any available finance jobs?

Once I step outside my door

Posted by & filed under my life.

This is what happens every time I step outside my door. The ball gets dropped at my feet. Then she backs off and lays down and waits….. Sometimes she has to wait forever because I’m not in the mood. But most of the time she gets at least one toss out of me because I… Read more »
