cat toys

Our cat is obsessed with this fish. We play with it at least twice a day (30 minutes each time.)

even the horses enjoyed the weather

Our weather was gorgeous today - sunny and mid-60s. The husband and I took a walk, and near our house all of the horses were out.
I actually took a picture of this guy rolling around on the grass, but it looked a little weird. I like that he looked right at me for a photo.

I think that's what this is - it's in my mom's dining room.
Pretty, isn't it?

snow-tipped mountains

See the snow on the mountains? Thankfully, that's all the snow I can see from our neighborhood. So glad it did manage to get (somewhat) warm this week!

dinner at Pack's Tavern

We were supposed to attend a function at Pack's Tavern, and discovered it was postponed once we arrived.
It turned out for the best. We ate an early dinner and I'm adding it to one of our frequently eat-at places because I liked the food so much!

working on a Valentine's Day craft project

I painted these tonight. I need three more to finish off a fun little project I thought of last week.

a walk through the field

We will walk every day that weather permits. Today was one of those days. (Tomorrow's forecast of 90% chance of rain may prevent us from heading out.)

latest sewing project - a camera case

The zipper on my camera case broke, making the case kind of useless for a couple of months. I decided to try my hand at making one today.

sunbathing in the house

Chloe found the one patch of sun in our living room to sun herself this afternoon. (We recently moved a chair that blocks most of the sunshine in that window.)
She obviously loved it.

because my odometer will never read this mileage again, I had to document it.

putting the dehydrator to work

Quite possibly one of the best Christmas gifts we have ever received - the food dehydrator.

let the melting begin

Crazy to think that we had over 8 inches of snow a week ago, and we were sledding down these hills six days ago.

I'm so glad to see grass again.

here comes the sun

Look! The sun! And it melted some of the ice off the roads today...

killer icycles

Taken from my office window (inside my home - which I did not step outside of all day.)

Monday, January 10, 2011


We had more than 8 inches dropped on us we went sledding.

Sophie in action

Two photos today. My mom and I took Sophie to a field near our houses, to let her run (and mainly allow me to try to get some fun photos.)

snow-filled tree

This is a dogwood tree in our backyard this afternoon.
We're expecting a larger snow storm to begin Sunday night. I'm not sure if I'm ready for it.

snowy tree

The limbs in our front yard this evening - we have about 2 inches of snow (more on the way) and I'm trying to salvage what's left of my camera.
No flash. Kind of blurry. Kind of like my day!

broke my camera trying to photograph the cat

This was taken just after the flash blew out on my camera.
Now I need to borrow a camera, and get mine in a shop to be fixed. Not good for a 365 blog!

And this is the photo that broke the camera:

a new hiding spot

We just made our coffee table a coffee table (instead of a tv stand), which offers a new place for Chloe to hide and play with her fish.

fabric magic

On Sunday, I started with this fabric:
Tonight, I ended with this this:
Read more about it on my other blog.

someone thinks she's human

Chloe's thing this week is to sit at the table when we sit down for dinner. Lucky for us, she doesn't sit ON the table.
Don't worry - I clean the table, and she's reprimanded if she tries to jump onto the table.

Taken on our walk today at Beaver Lake. I loved how you could see the steeple of a church poking out of the trees.

bright start

Started the year off with one of my obsessions (and it isn't my cat.) My cinnamon stick Yankee Candle is burning today. I love it.
