Trash Is Trash

Pulling the trash bin out from under the kitchen sink, Hubby asked, “What are your winter gloves doing in the kitchen trash?”   I answered, “Cuz they stink and the garbage is where they belong.” After years of plunging those gloves (with my hands in them) in Cherish the horse’s 5 gallon water bucket to … Continue reading Trash Is Trash

Oopsie

There I was, at ease, lying in the dental hygienist’s chair. That should have been my first red flag. I was at ease. I was comfortable, conversation and laughs flowing back and forth between me and the dental hygienist who is a sweetheart. The more she said how funny I was, the more laughs we … Continue reading Oopsie

Snowscapes

Yesterday I ran an errand. Hubby who usually runs the errands has been strictly engaged with DataCad for more time then I care to admit. He is drawing blueprints so that he can accurately install a new sump pump and back-up system. That means I’ve been doing some of the errands so he can continue … Continue reading Snowscapes

Fur Morsels

It would behoove you to know the appropriate time when to broach a “touchy” subject. ~~~~~~ *Cuddles –  14-year old aka Mr. Security in this house*   With someone of a shy demeanor direct eye contact takes some time to achieve. ~~~~~ *Meaghan – 12-years old biological sister of Maxie’s*   No matter your age … Continue reading Fur Morsels

Drats!

Now of course being I am only a mere human and therefore not nearly as intelligent as a Pileated Woodpecker, never saw it coming. I, the fumbling, heart in my throat, shaky photographer grappling below as this bird watched, managed to remove one lens to put on my big and very heavy 100-400mm lens. I … Continue reading Drats!

Sometimes when it feels as though the world is upon your shoulders know the openings will come where burdens are left behind. ~~~~~   Sometimes it’s as though you stand alone yet if you take time to look around a circle of support is clearly seen and a willing shoulder to lean on is close … Continue reading Sometimes

Crystal Clarity

Sometimes in order for a photographer to remain sharp   she must challenge herself which requires   a good eye, at times overcoming a hostile environment, seeing art,   a steady hand, and pushing beyond her “known” boundaries.   Sometimes a photographer is willing   to subject herself with discomfort and hardship   all for … Continue reading Crystal Clarity
