• Photo Friday ~ 2/17

    My plan was to take photos of our back yard, by the fire pit, and watch the snow slowly melt.  But the weather had other things in mind.  It was slowly melting, then more snow, then we got in a warm spell, with rain, so the snow disappeared quickly.  That is great, because I wanted the snow to melt, but it’s caused lots of flooding issues.  Thankfully with our house, we don’t usually deal with much flooding, though we have gotten some water damage to our garage.  But the flooding around here has gotten bad, so I’m hoping that ends soon. I am looking forward to spring.  We’ll still get…

  • Photo Friday

    I’m making my own Friday meme, Photo Friday.  😀  I want to share my photos, but I also need a little nudge to help me get out and take more photos.  I’m hoping knowing I want to share some on Fridays will help me.  If you would like to join me, just let me know, and I can send you a copy of the graphic. This is our back yard, and that’s our firepit.  I hope to take photos from the same spot and show the snow melting. Save Save Save Save Save Save Save Save Save Save Save Save Save Save Save

  • Christmas Blizzard 2016

    We had a great Christmas weekend.  We went to an annual Christmas party at a friends house, which was a blast.  This was their 11th annual party, it just isn’t Christmas until we go.  🙂  We had our close friends over on Christmas eve to celebrate together, like we do most years.  It was fun and a great time.  By the time they were heading home that night, it had started snowing.  On Christmas day we woke up to a very white Christmas, but still had a blessed morning, opening up gifts, enjoying a breakfast casserole I put together the night before, and calling our parents to wish them a…

  • Epic Rain Storm

    I don’t use the word epic for rain too often, especially around where we live.  Our area here in Idaho is a very dry and we usually don’t get too much rain during the summer.  Notice the word ‘usually’ because this year it has been completely different. We have had more rain this year than I can ever remember and we’ve been here 11 years.  It has honestly reminded me about our times living in Illinois with rain and thunderstorms almost every afternoon.  And though it’s nothing like the midwest humidity, we have actually had quite a bit of humidity too. But last Monday I knew the rain storm coming…
