When the Moon and Planets Come Together!


I hope tonight I will have more time to play with my settings!  Last night I was out with a friend and as we were leaving the restaurant our other friend pointed out this awesome sight!

I was trying not to speed home so I could break out the camera, clean off the dust and capture a few shots before it disappeared behind the hill!  It has been awhile once again maybe this will snap me out of my photography slump!

I hope everyone has a wonderful day or night where ever you may be on this amazing planet!

Improving a Rainy Day!

Taking a break from cleaning out my bedroom after I found this great dress that I thought would look great on my daughter!  She was up for playing in the rain so we were off to capture some fun in the rain!!!! Love her so very much!

Sorry for my lack of consistency with my blog!  Hoping to be better!



On a hike the other day we came across this interesting sight.  Lightning strike perhaps?  I have said it before the pines are my preference for hiking in and around.   There was really no trees to be seen on this hike!  I thought it was good exercise but the beauty although there for some, was lacking in my opinion.

It did take me back to my pre-teen years the smell of the sagebrush took me back to the days I would explore the hillsides of Malaga with my Brothers.


Love This Man of Mine!


The enormity of the forest can be scary sometimes but when you have your Daddy by your side you can walk through most anything!

Listening to the forest groan was interesting… trees that have blown over, but are caught be other standing trees makes quite the scary noise.  I was glad to be walking in the daylight.  Under the cover of darkness those noises would have my brain going wild!

Fathers Day, his choice an overnight hike up the Icicle!  That boy of ours had other possible arrangements so the girlie and I took off with Dad to his favorite place the woods.

Getting My Exercise In… A good laugh is great too!


So I discovered the other day how awesome it is to walk/jog with the dog hands free!  A plus to the belt and leash looped around it he pulls me when I am a getting tired!  Now if only I was brave and put on some Roller-Blades.

My friend told me years ago about this jogger belt that you can buy that basically does the same thing.  I wish I had thought of it earlier.  I am sure the one you can buy wouldn’t look as goofy as my set up!   My only regret, I bought a 4 foot leash and 6 feet would have been much better considering he likes to run right in front of me, making my stride off a bit.  Still much happier running and the dog is getting that pent-up energy released! 🙂

A Colorful Option… Spice Bottles!

While waiting for my Girlie to be done with a coffee date with a friend, I spotted these colorful spice bottles!  Earlier that day I had gone up while the town was quite in the AM to take pictures.   Was ready to take a cool shot when I turned on the camera only for it to tell me my SD memory card was still at home 10 miles away! The afternoon was a success.
