Feeling deeply for the people of Chile right now. I woke up feeling trapped by the snow until I heard what happened to the Chilean people this morning.

....and this is the new tank. I'm just wondering what I should do with my spare time now. For the last 4 months, I have been sopping up water, changing out towels, checking the situation on a daily basis. I hope this one lasts at least as long as the old one. That thing hung on for 19 years!

This may not mean much to you new hot water tank is FINALLY being installed!!! I thought that I'd be sopping up water for the rest of my life!

Until it gets warm enough to hike, it's the gym and exercise DVD's at home.

Letting go isn't as easy as I thought it would be.......Thank goodness spring is on it's way. Maybe if I stare out the door long enough, it will sneak up on me :)


The older I get, the better bedtime seems.

This in no way defines the whole me. However, it defines the state of mind I was in upon awakening this morning. Yes, I am ready to let something go. Something that I had for many many years.......


Nothing special about the picture, however the evening was special. I spent dinner with a couple of gal pals......always a nice time with them.

Some people read big huge novels. I read Beverly Cleary, in Spanish :) Ramona is hilarious. I almost forgot how much I love B. Cleary books.


The library or Biblioteca is where I spend one day a week learning to speak, read and write the Spanish language. One day, I will be fluent, It will be my second language.

Happy Valentine's day, even if you don't have a Valentine.

This has a vintage, nostalgic feel to it. I love things like that. They make me feel warm inside. Makes me want to go antique shopping, but not until he weather breaks, lol. These are a few things sitting on a table in my upstairs hallway.


Just playing with texture. As I look at this, a vignette would have been nice, huh?

In celebration of winter and snow! I figure, the snow will see the dead flowers, feel sorry and hurry springtime along :) What do you think?

Anyway, look at my unplanned bokeh. Much thanks to Skeletalmess for the texture and to xxxrmt for the ttv. My first time using both methods. Forgive me if this makes you guys look bad :)


This has been a comfort for me, these last few weeks.

My friend has a busy-body toddler. He's two, today. I can't wait to see them tonight.

Basically, SOOC. No time or desire to edit this mess. I'm home straight from the gym. Supposed to come up with a good self portrait but kind of got absorbed in The Ohio Photographer Convention information, instead. Hmmmm, I might want to go to that!

I hope that everyone had a good Monday. They can be a bear but sometimes, if you start out with the right attitude, Mondays aren't so bad :)

30/365 Revisited..ok, it's a redo :)

I wanted to try this with the Orton Effect. Love it better than my original post from last week.


Does this image make you feel cold or warm?

Please stop! I don't like white stuff anymore :(


This has become very handy at work and at the gym. 40 ounces of water goes down very easily if given to me in large quantities


I never thought I would attempt jogging or running. Guess what, I'm trying it and liking it.


Hot tea always makes me feel better. My new choice is Chai

More proof that I'm living the good life :) I'm waiting to see if they will put themselves away....

I've been at this for 1 month

This month has flown by so quickly. I'm so glad that I have been able to stick with this project. I've already learned a few things and I look forward to learning so much more. The project is a bit time consuming but totally worth it to me. I hope to find my processing style and then streamline it in the future. Then I know that processing should be a snap.

Anyway, I hope that everyone is enjoying their projects. I've seen so many interesting shots and themes both on the blogs and the Clickin' Moms P-365 pool on Flickr. There is really a lot of inspiration out there.

Good luck with month 2/12!


Hmmm, what sounds good?
