• Creative in 2016

    There are few different things I want to work on this year, and being more creative in 2016 is one of them.  I’m learning a new way of knitting, I have a class to learn tatting, I want to cross stitch more and work my photography. Do you like taking taking classes for learning new crafts?  I’ve joined Craftsy and I am already taking their Continental knitting class, and I have their Tatting class waiting for me.  But I’ve also found some free, online classes for my photography.  I much prefer free.  😀  I want to start doing more things like this to relax, decompress and just rest. Right now,…

  • Photography in 2016

    I’m not a New Years resolution person, but I do like setting goals for myself when possible.  And of course at the beginning of any year, it seems like a good time to evaluate and work on some goals.  At times I hate talking about goals because then if I don’t follow through, I feel like I’ve failed.  But you know what, I’m not going to let that stop me from sharing.  If I accomplish some of my goals, that is great, if I don’t, then that’s fine too.  🙂 One of the goals, or things I want to work on this year is my photography, specifically composition.  I have…

  • Springtime weather

    We’ve had some really weird springtime weather.  This is what it looked like on the 15th: And I took these on the 17th: I think we are finally done with any major snow, though we might still get some flurries.  But we’ve been in the 60’s now, and we’ll be near 70 by Tuesday.  How is the weather by you?  Do you still have snow or does it feel like summer or just a normal spring?

  • A Blessed Christmas ~ 2014

    We had such a great Christmas this year.  We were able to spend Christmas Eve with friends, enjoyed some yummy snacks and watching a movie together.  Then, after we got home, before we went to bed on Christmas Eve the snow started!  We woke up to a beautiful, white Christmas. We were all so happy about that.  It’s been so brown around here lately, and any snow we did have about a week ago was long gone.  Christmas just seems more like Christmas with snow.  Every time we heard White Christmas on Pandora, we just kept saying ‘Well, hopefully we’ll have one.’  And we did!  🙂 Like I said before,…

  • Crazy weather

    I took these photos on March 25th.  We are starting to get some green in the field behind our house.  There is still a lot of brown around, but I wanted to capture some of the greenery.  Because having it in March is very rare for us.  You can see the snow still on the mountains in the background. The following photos where taken on March 30th, 5 day later, after church in the morning.  It was raining all day the day before and through the night.  But then by the morning the snow had started and didn’t stop for the longest time.  It was a very wet snow that…
