Go Fly A Kite

We have A LOT of wind around these parts. Unfortunately it's not really kite flying weather because the wind is usually pretty out of control! We got lucky, though, yesterday and had a BALL flying the kite!

Didn't try anything super fancy, just messed around with angles and such.

Sunrise... Sunset

You just HAVE to sing that title like Fiddler On The Roof!! It's GOT to be the best musical of all time; well, right next to Les Miserables. But I digress...

We went for a drive yesterday. It was a beautiful day!! Next time I'll have to roll the window down but it was just too flippin cold for that!!! We were coming home just as the sun was setting and it was GORGEOUS!!!!
This is my favorite one. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! I kinda wish that it was farm land rather than the road with telephone poles but at the same time I think it's pretty cool. Could be a thought provoking pictures that way. I will be running along this very stretch of road in a little less than 3 months for my first marathon! ** Check below for previous photowalks that I wasn't able to post until today! Is that cheating?

Little Bird

It may appear that I have dropped off the face of the earth but I assure you that it isn't the case! I even have pictures from these previous weeks. However, we have had computer trouble and ended up having to get a new one {hated to spend the money on that}.

SO... this is what you get. A bird perching on a teeny tiny branch of a weed! Unfortunately I don't have the mega zoom lens that I quite possibly covet, AND due to the new computer, I no longer have CS2; so this really is as good as it gets!This is the view just out my back window. And this bird, among others, serenade me each morning and throughout the day. It's a sure sign that Spring is on the way... not sure how I feel about that just yet. Guess it will come whether I'm ready or not.

Close Up Branches

I have wanted to mess around with close up shots. And with Spring just around the corner I wanted to take some pictures of some branches. Spring won't actually be here for another month or so but the snow is melting. It won't be long before these very branches have buds on them! I love how I can focus on something so close and have the things behind be blurry. It's cool!My favorite tree is the pine tree. I have specific varieties that I prefer over others but I just love them! I love the color they bring during those long winter months. I dream of the day when I have at least one big pine tree in my front yard that I can put Christmas lights on! It was fun doing these close up shots. I think I'll be playing more with this!!!

John Deere

Take a ride in my John Deere Tractor! Okay so it isn't mine, it's my Dad's. I loved climbing up inside and seeing all the tools on the dash. The grime, the crud, the dirt and hay... it brings back so many memories. Clear back to when I was VERY young riding in the back of the tractor bailin' hay.One of these days I'll get enough ambition to make another quilt... and it very likely will be a John Deere!
