For anyone that wants to play along, my only suggestions (suggestions, not rules!) are: The color is the dominate focus in the image as opposed to a small spot in a lot of other colors. Drop a comment so I can follow along on your color journey. That's it! I hope you play along and… Continue reading Color Series: Orange Day 5
This is pretty much the view today with a beautiful, but windy snowfall. I'm hoping the roads stay decent as I'm supposed to get the inspection done today. It is such a pretty snow so far I just want to snuggle in with a cup of coffee by the window and watch.
It is difficult not to be exceptionally angry today. I'm angry at the ignorance and the unwillingness of those that are supposed to be in charge to actually DO something productive. Yes, I could be talking on the larger scale as that absolutely applies as well, but I'm talking a little lower down the power… Continue reading What’s Left At The End Of The Day
I finally got my test results back yesterday afternoon. It took longer than the 24 hours I was originally told, but I got the expected negative so I'm good to go to take the meds I need to kick this bronchitis in the butt. Even better, I noticed that the amazing, saintly doctor I spoke… Continue reading Rainbowed Sunset Behind A Tree
I really need to get off my butt and get some new photos, but I just haven't had much time. I'm not sure when I will, either, so... there might be a few repeats that I use to see what I can do with all the fun new features in Photoshop. Switching to black and… Continue reading Snowy Tree In Black & White
We are getting another snow. Thankfully, this is one of the pretty ones that is wet and sticky and coats everything it touches. I am hoping that it stays that step or two above freezing until everyone is home safe, though. As of right now, the roads are the only thing the snow isn't coating.… Continue reading A Pretty Kind of Snow
Really kind of wishing now I'd taken my new sphere out to play when it was snowing.
Okay, so not really powdered sugar, but it reminds me of what it looks like if you dusted something with powdered sugar. Can you tell my brain is shifting into cake mode? BG's birthday is coming up soon. My girl will be 16! Ugh! Another driver and way too soon and not soon enough. Anyway...… Continue reading Powdered Sugar Tree
I don't think it is supposed to amount to much, but we are getting some snow today. I did a quick test and it is cold enough to freeze bubbles, but they aren't freezing fast enough and it is just a tad too breezy, so they don't last. I'll be watching the weather all day… Continue reading Snowy Start
Coincidence? They are now calling for a potential for significant snow the next couple of days. Guess we will see. I'm still trying my damnedest to cough up a lung and haven't managed to do much else. I haven't gotten out to try and take any new pictures because the cold air kicks that effort… Continue reading Interesting
Yes. I know. It isn't yellow. I was making homemade lemonade and was inspired by the mess and all the seeds to attempt to grow a tree. I honestly didn't expect the seeds to sprout as much of what you buy in a store has sterile seeds unless it's organic. I didn't know one way… Continue reading It’s A Baby Lemon!
It has been one hell of a week and it doesn't look to be stopping soon. I've gotten about two thirds of the way through my revisions, which has been both harder and easier to do depending on which sections I was working. Those revisions have changed the tone of the book in a way… Continue reading Revisions, Illness, Worry And The Start Of The Holidays
Even after nearly a week of below freezing temps, my maple still refuses to let go of it's leaves. Many are even still green. Crazy.
My maple is hanging in there, still full of leaves and color, with the core still being pretty green. I'm expecting that to change rapidly over the next few days with the crazy cold heading our way. One of the things I love about this tree is the range of colors we get from it… Continue reading Hanging In There
BG graciously agreed to help me work on my book cover concept this week. I adore the fact that she is not only willing to help, but pretty excited to be a part of this with me. We went to a local trail that I had thought would be the perfect setting to play with… Continue reading Refining My Perspective
The Chokecherry is one of my favorite trees. While it is in its growing season, it is just almost always interesting or unique. When it comes out in the spring, it starts with these medium green leaves and shortly after, usually in mid to late April or early May, it puts on these gorgeous white… Continue reading Chokecherry Blossom
