Way Back When

There is a little old cabin across the street.  It's been vacant since long before we moved here 10 years ago.  Every now and then, I like to venture in, and imagine who might have lived there.  Was it just a little hunting cabin, or did someone actually reside there on a regular basis?  Behind the cabin there are two buildings that have long since fallen down, leaving the little old cabin all by itself.  Within the cabin sits an old table, an old couch, an old bed frame, and several small odds and ends such as these tins shown above.

Spring Sunrise

 Earlier I posted a recent sunset.  Now I am sharing a recent sunrise. 


Here is a shot of a recent sunset. I caught the sun just in time!

Stained Glass

I am going to be making a mosaic stepping stone for my garden when spring comes.  In the meantime, I've been collecting broken pieces of stained glass, broken pieces of tile and ceramic plates, and other odds and ends, to complete the project with.  Here's a few pieces of broken stained glass.  I love all the pretty colors and textures!

Dryer Lint Balls

Our dryer quit on us today.  When my husband disassembled it to see if it was fixable, we found these behind the barrel, perfectly shaped little spheres of various sizes.  Quite odd, but also quite curious.  Playing around with them, my daughter and I made a miniature solar system out of them using a tangerine as the sun. Neat aren't they?

R.I.P. Cheyenne

Today I will remember our precious family dog, Cheyenne.  She passed away early this morning, succumbing to cancer.  We will truly miss her.

All Dressed Up

My daughter and her friends were playing dress up with our puppy using her doll clothes.  Not the best quality pic, but cute none-the-less.

Sunrise Over Paradise

I went on a weekend getaway to the Upper Peninsula last summer.  The first night we were there we stayed in the little town of Paradise.  I was lucky to be up at sunrise to catch the sun coming up over Whitefish Bay, which is a part of Lake Superior, and not too far from where the Edmund Fitzgerald sank.

The Monarch

I love Monarch butterflies.  So peaceful and so graceful.  We have tons of milkweed around our home, so I am never lacking in opportunities to photograph them.

This is my dog Neo.  He is very hard to photograph because he is so full of energy.  I was lucky to catch this one after we had been playing with the ball.

Sunshine For A Rainy Day

It will be several months before we get to see any sunflowers in bloom, so I thought this would be a nice reminder of warm days on this rainy and snowy winters day.
