December 2022

It was a hot one!

The temperature was in the low 90’s again today, extremely unseasonably warm, and very humid. So we pulled out our sprinkler and Slip ‘N Slide! (Warning: LOTS of pictures ahead!)

At first, they weren’t so sure.


You Capture: Feet

Oh, I love feet!*** That may make me weird. I know feet gross out a lot of people. Not me! I spent the fall of 1997 taping ankles of sweaty Badger football players. That’s a lot of stinky feet!

But I really love my boys’ feet. They’re so cute! I had a […]

You Capture: Reaching

I slacked last week and didn’t participate in Beth’s challenge to capture quiet. I was exhausted living a single parent’s life while Andy was in Ireland. I just didn’t have it in me to work on my blog. But I’m back, and I had a good time coming up with shots for […]


“Daylight” was a great choice of Catheroo‘s for this week’s diptych. We had tons of daylight last week, then went through a few days of fog and overcast skies. Today, the sun came out again. And now with daylight savings time, we’re able to enjoy the daylight even longer!

First, here’s Catheroo’s shot for today. […]

Winter baseball

After Noah got home from school today, we stayed outside to play. Caden decided it was a great time to get out the baseball gear. I worked on pitching for a bit, then was thankfully relieved by Andy when he got home from work. It was a beautiful sunny afternoon, about 40 degrees, and just […]

Sledding in the yard

We got about 8 or 9 inches of snow yesterday. Add that to the several inches that were still on the ground from our snowstorm a month ago and that leaves a good base on the ground. When Andy plowed the driveway yesterday, he made a huge pile of snow in our front yard so […]

NaBloPoMo 2009 is over!

30 posts in 30 days. Done. Yeah me! And I think most of my content was pretty worthwhile!

I’ll try not to be too much of a stranger, but I’ll try to save posts for times when I have something that may be interesting to you 7 readers.

But first a couple of things.

1. […]

You Capture: Sunrise/Sunset

This week over at Beth’s, she challenged us to capture the sunrise or sunset, or to interpret sunrise/sunset at will. I went literal.

Here’s the sunrise out my back sliding door just the other morning. It’s prettier out my bathroom window upstairs, but I was in the middle of working out in […]

Let’s Go Fly a Kite!

This past Saturday, when the temperature soared into the upper 60’s (hey, that’s really high for my neck of the woods in November!), we took the time to clean out our garage. We tossed out a bunch of broken toys, organized the toy bucket, swept out the tree worth of leaves, and got […]

Who knew…

…that Obi Wan Kenobi rides a three-wheeled scooter wearing a red fire engine helmet, pulling tricks?

And he also likes to play street hockey on our driveway with Andy and a hockey stick that’s way too long for him?

(Like […]
