Kennedy Honors

I'm not big on watching award shows. But last night I watched the Kennedy Center Honors. I was awe struck. What an enormous amount of talent. It reminded me of being little when dreams were limitless, and watching with my parents, brothers and sister in the family room on 33 Dover. I was moved to tears and couldn't help thinking about all the young people, (mine included), performing their hearts out on smaller stages across the world. I am so thankful to the Kennedy family for reminding us of how important the performing arts are to our world. What an amazing race this human race is.

Snowed in

We just spent 4 days unable to get the car out because of the drifts. I baked bread
And then yesterday I took a walk in the woods

There's quite a drop off behind our house

The rock wall is our property line

Could be a fairy hideout.....

Today I'm taking the car out. We managed to knock down a path in our driveway.....wish me luck!

Should I rethink this?

I had this wonderful idea....make a quilt, recycle the fabric from used clothing, do all the sewing by hand. Hmmmm.....I might have bit off more than I can chew.

This is why I always try to have my camera in my purse. You never know when an impromptu snowflake lesson will come up.

David's day

I couldn't find any yellow roses for him anywhere. I had to settle for these.

Sofa photo collection

Apparently I'm beginning a collection of abandoned sofas. This one is on the side of the road next to the bridge over the river. I'm speechless......

I hate it when I

I hate it when I find myself in this situation. I always thought "find a penny pick it up all day long you'll have good luck". But then once I started to pick one up in front of Greg and he stopped me because it was tails up. Ever since I've had a delima. But today I picked it up. Hey, money's money. We'll just have to wait and see about the luck.
