project 365 ~ 2/8-14


we had the prettiest flowers for Valentine's Day, thanks to Barb!
and cards from Matthew and Brian, and chocolates too!


gotta have a sign foto (right, Amanda?) lol


bought some woodpecker block treats and yepper, they luv'em!


after a quick trip to the ER via ambulance, my Mom was discharged with her new walker!


blueberry crumble breakfast toast with our morning coffee today, it's hard to believe that a few short hours later, my Mom fell in the shower and injured her knee


every Monday is Laundry Day, but it's rare that it is ever warm enough in February to hang the laundry on the clothesline outside..... I just LUV that smell!


we had a couple of warmer days and enough snow melted around the pond that the ducks weren't the least bit interested in me or the food I brought them today, they were too busy grubbing around

ADSR4 challenge 12 @ WST
wow, this was the last leg of the race, and my favorite too! It's the pages we work on together that are always the most fun (having a partner with an English Degree helps when journaling is a requirement too)

project 365 ~ 2/2-2/7


the sky was a pretty purple with the full moon rising, over the back hill


so I hear this bang, bang and head out the back door to find my friend, Barb stacking wood
she's such a sweetie!


winter's view of the Valley, from the North Fork Dam


elusive & camera-shy, caught this cardinal by surprise in the apple tree


let'em eat cake! (my Mom is the official Quality Control Officer, and she takes her job very seriously) lol


the sky was so pink @ sunset, it cast a pink glow on everything this evening!

project 365 ~ 1/19-2/1

whew! playin'a bit of catch-up here dangnabbit
I took all of my photos for the last 2 weeks, but didn't upload any of them until today
sooooooooo, ya get 2, 2, 2 weeks in 1 [post] lol


my BFF amanda sent me a postcard from her vacation in Currumbin on the Gold Coast of Australia, and I was so excited to get this little bit of summertime in my hands that I dropped it in the snow... so I took a picture of the irony of it all lol (thanks for my lovely postcard, and I did get the disc too gf) Big Hugs!!!


and then there were 3 (wiping tears away) I sure hope when I go back again the 4th duck is there (maybe she was just off wandering around, I dunno)


this photo probably means absolutely nothing to anyone but me lol
but, when you see buds on the maple tree....... aaaaaah, the smallest sign of Spring!


after many weeks of gray cloudy days, it sure was nice to look from my desk to a bright sunny day!


you know you're Really Rural when you can walk to the local Grange!


just too funny... a Sale @ the Dollar Store LOL


made a yummy batch of Creamy Rice Pudding for my Mom (cuz she luvs it, um... I do too lol)


coffee and the Sunday paper
a trip to the local Agway for birdseed, turkey feed and cracked corn for the ducks


my attempt at a maple twist danish, and the last doughnut (donuts don't last long around here)


this convoy of trucks stopped along the road and used ultrasound to determine the presence of oil and gas
it was very weird, and very loud!


lovely, old blue glasses from Barb... she is such a junker lol 5 for $1.25 and she stole'em I tell'ya!
oh I just LUV them (and she gets a batch of dougnuts)


whatta inauguration... have never seen this many people in my lifetime!
this is an awful photo, but it's the one I took today
it was SO cold I had to bring out the long fur coat to feed the ducks today!
