My computer crashed a couple weeks ago. So I sorta cheated! The last two posts were back dated, despite the pictures being taken on time. This one, however, is a real cheat. I haven't taken anything recently so I dug through the file "RECOVERED" on my desktop {yes they were able to save EVERYTHING} and found this beautiful shot.Her face is a bit washed out {even after my husband edited it}. But I can't help it. I love it anyway.

An Apple A Day

I am giddy with excitement. I bought these two big jars at the local thrift store {which I LOVE... hmm I just had an idea for another photo walk!!} for $1 each! I ♥ them! Don't ya just dig that orangey brown counter & back splash?!
I wish there was another red apple in the smaller jar. I think it would balance it out a little bit more. I also wish I had ANY idea how to use Photoshop. I've got the whole suite {my husband majored in advertising} and I don't have any clue where to even start!

my view

This is the view from my treadmill. I look out this window at this tree 2-3 times a week. I could draw a picture of this thing perfectly with my eyes closed!!! Sometimes I hate this tree but then I just remind myself that I hate the treadmill more. Had I been running outside and ran PAST this tree I would probably have loved it; especially if there were no houses around it. It's not its fault that it was planted in town.

And then I remind myself that if it were not for this tree, I would actually just be staring at the houses across the street and the cars driving by. So in reality, I love this tree. Thank you for making my boring treadmill runs more pleasant!

Yukon Charlie

Today I busted out my new show shoes!!! I have been SO excited to use these babies! My man of the house was home from work today so he watched the sprouts for me so I could buck a few drifts! I drove to a nearby lake and I was off for a great workout and a moments peace! Aren't they AWESOME!! At first there were a lot of other tracks but soon I was able to break trail for myself!! There is something about being surrounded by untouched snow and leaving your very own mark. Like hitting the slopes first at the ski hill just after a killer snow... there's nothing like it!I "frolicked" {yeah, great word for snowshoeing... thanks for the help babe... psh} around the the island a bit and then did a loop around the lake. I love funky trees. It was a great day! I am already all geared up for my next trip!

Winter Wonderland

It has been snowing and snowing and snowing!! It's my favorite kind of snow too. Big snowflakes coming straight down {no wind}. Makes for EXCELLENT snowboarding but I love how it rests on the trees and fences.

This is my parents front yard.I drove up Ski Hill Road and drove past some old friend's homes. I love this old barn.Then I drove up to the cemetery. This is where my husband and I will be buried. You can't see the mountains for the low clouds but it is the most beautiful view.A view out the car window before I headed back home. My hometown is the most beautiful and peaceful place on earth.
