If I were in the habit of swearing on my blogs, I would swear. It’s gotten seriously cold. Yesterday morning I was so stressed, I drove to the local 24-hour Metro (grocery store) to buy some chocolate. This was what I saw as I walked back to my car. (That’s not my car, by the [...]

One of my favorite bloggers is doing a #photo365 project this year, and it’s inspired me to do a #photo365 project myself. I’m going to be taking at least one photo each day for a year, and sharing them on the Internet. I started yesterday, January 1, and the above photo was my chosen shot [...]

Whenever I can, I like to go walking in the woods. These are some photos that I took a few weekends ago, that I hadn’t gotten around to posting before now. The spring path was very muddy. Good thing I had a new pair of rubber boots (below). This area near Walkers Pond is very [...]
