same tree as below, with more snow.

We got hit with it again. Just capturing the damage on the camera. This made us a level 2 snow emergency which means, for those of you in the south, you are not supposed to drive unless you have too. My office was closed so I didn't have to.

Yes, I have skipped a few days and will catch those up, but here is today's assignment in honor of MORE snow that we got today. Tracy, you are missing it all! NOT!

365-12,13,14, Wisps of winter

These are pictures all from today. It is still snowing like crazy. When I saw the pictures above, I thought I had water on my lense. Who know's what it really is? Yes, snowflakes. It was snowing that hard. I love this tree in the backyard. I thought it looked like a winter postcard.

365-10, 11

I only posted this picture because I've been at church all day literally and didn't have time to take any pictures. Also because it is snowing to beat the band right now and I miss summer too much especially seeing all your beautiful pictures from the south. I did take this picture right after I got my camera this summer so I decided to use it to protest our weather. I know that isn't Christian but it makes me feel better? LOL

This picture is of Lauren during Field Hockey this fall when the ball hit her on the nose and broke it. The funny thing was, she was in warmups but felt very proud of herself. She got great black eyes after this. The black under her eyes now is what they put on their face I guess to deflect the sun? Who knows, they feel more powerful I guess. Also, the reason you have seen her a lot is because she's my last child at home. The others have left me and of course their father as well. They have the nerve to grow up and leave the nest.

365-4, The Birds

2 different settings taken in my back yard. You should have heard the loud singing. They were in 2 separate trees. It reminded me of the movie, "The Birds".

365-2, The anniversary

My husband Duane and I have been married 29 years this last December 29th. This is what he gave me for my anniversary and thought appropriate to take my first picture of this year in our honor. The piece is called "Anniversary" by Willow Tree.


My photography teacher from afar has suggested taking a picture a day to hone my skills. I need all the help I can get. Hopefully, I will be able to be creative this year. This was taken a couple of weeks ago but I wanted to start with this to mark the time of year I started this project since I didn't have one for yesterday, Jan. 1.
