Jay is spending the evening snowboarding on the mountain, no worries though, my trusty sidekicks are right there. One of them is wondering when I'll drop some of my snickers for him! ;o)

My creativity is lacking, cabin fever is setting in, I'm getting frustrated with my photos. So here's a shot of our wood. Love all the textures and shapes in this photo, but thats about it. I need spring, or I'm afraid I'm not going to finish this 365....

Jay has always been obsessed with these Metal Puzzles, he's getting Cyrus into them now, too. Its great, cause I usually just end up throwing them out of frustration... More power to them!

Its been a "To infinity and beyond" kind of day! ;o) All day long Buzz was flying all over my house, so before the sun tucked away for the day I asked him to be Buzz outside!

Daddy was home today, so we went out for breakfast, read books, did puzzles, went for a walk and caught up on all the DVR'ed episodes of Ax Men!

Out on the ocean sailing away
I can hardly wait to see you come of age
But I guess, we'll both just have to be patient
'Cause it's a long way to go, a hard row to hoe
Yes, it's a long way to go but in the meantime

Before you cross the street
Take my hand
Life is what happens to you
While you're busy making other plans

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful boy
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful boy

Happy Sunday, friends! How about some baked oatmeal squares to start your day? They're not as good as they look, oh well, right? My icing skills could also use some work....

I guess Mother Nature didn't get the memo that we have enough snow here in NH! Ugh..

Cyrus wants to paint his yellow, of course! We're not having a very easy time finding it though. Any suggestions?

Tess Rollins asked me to share one from the cutting room floor, so here it is!

Awoke to a few more inches on the ground. The sun played peek a boo with me while I tried snapping a few shots of our winter wonderland, and then it just plain went away and continued to snow off and on! It may be snowing, but at least its day 50, thats kind of a big deal! ;o)

This is what its like to be a boy mom.... he was puking sick Monday, up all night, and up again all Tuesday night but this is how our Wednesday morning has been despite me saying "please don't jump on my furniture, you're going to get hurt!!!"

And then, well this ALWAYS happens.... Not trying to rub it in, but I told you, kid....

Yes he knows I posted these, yes he's mad!

It has been so cold out, and this guy is a trooper and works out in it EVERYDAY. Go him, I couldn't do it. He deserves to just sit and thaw out when he gets done with working, and thats just what he does! Somedays I really take that wood stove for granted! :-/

Everyday we're shoveling, shoveling, shoveling.... Well not me today, I took this storm off! However they are, cause we're buried again!! I'm ready to book a cruise, who's coming?

Happy Valentine's Day!

I woke up to coffee in bed, courtesy of Jay, a homemade valentine and a frozen waffle cooked by the one and only Cyrus. It was pretty darn sweet if you ask me! ;) Jay planned on recreating my favorite meal from my favorite restaraunt. It was beyond thoughtful, and pretty tasty too. He also gave me some roses, probably not the same a what you got, but mine will never there's that! ;o) All in all it was very relaxing, just what I needed! Are you big into celebrating Valentine's Day? What did you do? I'd love to hear!

Oh yeah, I almost forgot to tell you, its snowing, again!

Not feeling very much like myself, these days, so I took the past couple of days off from posting from the blog, and social media! I feel like these places should be a positive, and fun, outlet and lately they're just making me feel bad about myself. I need to get out of this funk.

Mother nature has given us so much snow lately, all we've done is shovel, especially JJ. He shovels, here, takes care of a few other peoples roofs, and walkways and then has to go to work and SHOVEL. It got the best of him and he needed to rest, so thats just what we did Friday. We lived inside our own little bubble, and he even surprised me with a date. Cyrus went with his Grammy, while I thought we were just taking a trip to Walmart by ourselves, because we needed all the good stuff- we always run out of laundry detergent, toilet paper, and paper towels all at once I swear! Any who he didn't stop at Walmart, he stopped at the movie theater! I knew as soon as we got there what his plans were, but I was so confused because first of all I had told him I wanted to go with my girlfriends and second of all, I told him I would never go on opening day. I'm sure you can all guess what we saw! ;o) He stated that he wanted to be the one to see it with me first cause he knew how excited I was to see it, but we all know he really wanted to see what the fuss was all about! I think he was a bit disappointed to find out after all this time it wasn't a porno I was reading but a love story! ;o) So friends, if you're reading this- SORRY! I'll go see it again! ;) I was pleasantly surprised by the movie, of course the book was much better and there was some disappointments but all in all it was good! I think the biggest thing I would change is that they didn't follow the specific details of the book, just the dialogue! The up side was that the theater was EMPTY, only about 16 people including us, Jay left saying I thought this was a big deal? Didn't seem it like it. LOL How about you? Did you see 50 Shades of Grey? Thoughts?

Oh and here is a shot from Walmart, cause we really did have to go there...

Well today is just another one of those days...My kitties have the right idea about today, I wish I was them!

First late post, I took the photo yesterday just didn't get around to posting- here's to hoping I don't get in this habit. ;( Went to leave my house and was almost impaled, so of course I decided to shoot it before snapping it away and then the dripping fascinated me, but not long enough for me to try and stick around for an awesome shot of it!

Monday, February 9, 2015


Guess what we did today? Oh you know, shoveled our life away. No big deal. Go away, winter!

Sunday, February 8, 2015


Its snowing, again. Wait didn't I write that once this week already? Yeah, we're getting slammed, and now the icicles seem to be taking over! Oh and how are these for some color photos? ;-p

Saturday, February 7, 2015


See, I told you easier to shoot black and white when you're not being told you have to! ;o) Perhaps some color tomorrow? No promises! ;)

Don't you just want to lay one on him? 

Friday, February 6, 2015


Oh you thought there'd be some color on the blog today? Me too. When a pocket of dramatic light calls your name, you answer. Sorry! ;)

Thursday, February 5, 2015


Yahoo, last day of the 5 day black and white challenge! I'm needing some color around here! ;)

I know I took a shot of him yesterday, but come on, he's so cute, plus I had to document his attempt at digging a snow tunnel!

A little split lighting for day 4 of the 5 day black and white challenge! ;o)

Tuesday, February 3, 2015


Day 3 of the black and white challenge... Is it me or is it harder to shoot black and white when you know you have to? This is my second time doing this challenge, and I swear its the hardest 5 days of my life, and then all I see for the week after is black and white images. Oh the irony!

I trampled my way through at least 3 feet of snow to get these shots, my bones are still freezing! This overgrown Christmas tree farm is my favorite, in every season!

Snow day with my boys! Our morning consisted of snuggles, coffee, drawing, and sitting by the fire. Our afternoon, sledding in the storm! Life is good!

I am so glad my love is getting back into drawing, he is so talented! <3

An instagram friend challenged me to do a 5 day black and white challenge, so instead of trying to do double the photos, my blog will just be black and white for a few days! Hang tight, color will return!

Here's some lovely icicles, and then I caught the reflection of me dangling out of my kitchen window, in our motion light... Jay was holding the back of my pants so I wouldn't take a fall..The things we do!
