Frozen creek and I've got the dry skin blues

It's the first time I've seen the creek frozen since we moved in. You know it's cold when moving water is freezing! My granddaughter thought dancing on the ice was all fun and games until she ended up face down with a leg in the creek :o) I was taking pictures and I heard a big splatt and a loud giggle. When I turned around, there she lay. Since nothing was hurt we got a big laugh out of it. Fadra didn't know what to make of all the sudden excitement but I think she was just happy she didn't end up along side of Ashley in the creek. They both had a ball sliding around on the ice!

Needless to say with all this below zero weather my skin is so dry it's time to put a little skin therapy into action. I must admit I am notorious for not washing my face properly or putting on body lotion in the wintertime. I do it occasionally (just enough to get by or for a night out) but nothing like everyday. I think it's because I have a tendency to get cold. I want to get …

Snow again

We've been living in a deep freeze here the past week with snow showers off and on. I love the snow! That's, of course, if I don't have to drive in it. Today was perfect with it starting as I was getting to work and stopping right before lunch. I've mostly been concerned about keeping warm here lately and I want to tell you that the Pottery Barn bedset I invested in is the best thing I have bought since I can remember. I have not gotten even the least bit chilly under it. I normally have a comforter and a couple quilts over me since we set our thermostat at 68 or leave the EdenPure heater set at about midways. It's chilly in the mornings but then again that's how it should be in the wintertime. We used to see who could get closest to the fireplace or fuel oil stove as a kid first thing on a frosty morning. That's what you called cold when everything fizzled out at night and the house was actually froze in the mornings :o) You can see a picture of my bedset…

Vogue - Katy Perry's Inauguration Photo Diary

Katy Perry shared her personal photos and her stories of the Inauguration of President Obama on Vogue yesterday.  You can see all the pictures and read her story here which is pretty cool.  I am not a huge fan of hers but don't get me wrong I do like her. I hear her alot on the radio and catch her on tv occasionally and that's enough for me. I did get a huge kick over the whole Sesame Street cleavage uproar. She looked just fine to me and really pretty! People can be so uptight sometimes. Being a fan of John Mayer I am glad to see he looks very happy with her. Unlike some of his awkward photos with other girlfriends. Looks like they had a great time! I would love to hear a music collaboration from them. Let's keep our fingers crossed.

Yay! My camera remote works!

This is the first batch of outfit pictures I have gotten around to taking with my new camera using my remote and it worked like a dream. I can't believe how unbelievably simple it really was :o) Now if I can just work out a way to hide the damn thing! During the holidays I had to take a break from my online photography class but I am happy to say that I am getting back into the swing of it. Still don't know quite what I'm doing but I'm learning and isn't that what it's all about. I had a few minutes after work the other day so I thought I would venture around a bit to see if I could find a decent spot to take outfit pictures since it's still dark by the time I get home. I've taken a few around the office but haven't been really all that happy with them. No place where I know I can sit the camera up when I have a little time and be able to shoot a couple shots I know I&…

What a beautiful sunset today

Why they say a picture is worth a thousand words! Just gorgeous!

Junk room to walk-in closet

I am so thrilled with my new room! I had a few items I had to work around which included my cedar wardrobe, my sweeper, my big mirror and my chest of drawers. I decided to move the wardrobe out of the corner and hide my sweeper beside it and move the chest of drawers under the mirror. Not too much thinking to solve that problem. My hubby did the research on the actual shelving and rods. I wanted something that would withstand a lot of weight. Wire racks cannot withstand very much weight so we went for heavy duty rods and shelving. He found what he was looking for at  Lowes and I couldn't be more pleased with it. It's not going anywhere and especially not on the floor :o) They only come in certain lengths so make sure you get out your measuring tape and have your plan in place before you buy. 

My best friend had this beautiful mirror made for me for my basement at my other house. Of course I couldn't leave it or cover it up so I've worked around it. It's quite awes…

Beatles and Led Zepplin Mash-Up


Ultimate Classic Rock
The Beatles and Led Zepplin mash-up! Is this the coolest thing you've ever seen or heard? The Beatles are my all time favorite band and I was just jamming to Led Zepplin II the other day. I've spent many hours listening to these fellows throughout my lifetime. Love them!
Now that's what I call music! ♥
