Pictures Pictures Pictures

We took a little afternoon picture taking escapade this afternoon. You see, I had spent a few hours of turmoil reteaching someone the skill of regrouping in subtraction (aka. Borrowing). It was tumultuous. It was painful. It was hellish. We needed to leave the house and run like Fraulein Maria into the mountains. We didn’t […]

Shrinky Dinks

The Highland Games

Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending the Highland Games in Canmore, Alberta. I love the bagpipes. I love kilts. I love it all. But let’s just get down to the feet of the matter shall we? (If you should like to really get in the feel of it, you may…) More to come…. Nan

Need opinions…

My Mom told me about the Costco “Give Us Your Best Shot” photo contest… She thinks I ought to enter. Well, I don’t think I have even a remote chance of winning because I’m sure there will be pretty stiff competition but hey, I’m willing to risk it for a $2,500 gift card at Costco! […]

Stired.

So. Tired. This is why I cannot think of anything to write today. I simply need a nap. Two 2 o’ clock in the morning night’s will do that to a girl doncha know? Yup, it’s my dreaded insomnia rearing its ugly head again. I wish I had something worthwhile or funny to talk about. […]

I love flowers!

Since getting my camera I think I have probably taken over 300 photos of just flowers! So much of the year here involves a great deal of white stuff and booger freezing temperaturs and soil so hard it has a special nickname, “permafrost.” And hence, no flowers except those found in a florist’s shop until […]

Cool… Righteous…

Said in my trippiest, most gnarly surfer dude voice. I took this picture the other day because I liked the pattern. Turns out it’s a fun little optical illusion. (click the image to enlarge it.) #1 Can you guess what it is? #2 Where am I standing in relation to it? Nan

The Musée Mécanique

When we were in California you may remember that we took a day trip to San Francisco. We drove across the Golden Gate Bridge almost twice due to getting lost as we typically do in San Francisco… too many one way streets! We strolled through Golden Gate park and saw things like pretty birds and […]

Home Sweet Home

I’m a contented lady. I am home. My children are in bed. I am looking forward to entering back into that state of being known as normal. It should be mundanely exciting. I can’t wait. So many things to mention. First my bullet points: Saw the Oregon Coast. Gorgeous. Saw my first wild Grizzly bear. […]

GONG!

That was the sound of one of my most humiliating parenting moments. Trying to be as cultured as humanly possible the six of us spent a couple of hours meandering through Golden Gate Park in San Francisco. It is just beautiful there. We walked through the Botanical Gardens. And I took some pictures of the […]

The Golden Gate Bridge

I like this bridge. It is a beautiful piece of engineering. So I am attempting to wax artistic in my photographic rendering of it. I hope you enjoy the pictures. (Click on them to see the full size images. COPYRIGHT 2007 – Do not steal these images. If you would like to use them for […]

Vacation is going wonderfully…

We are having a great time here. It is sinfully hot. (If you are from the South or are living in Southern California where I heard it was a blistering 120 degrees yesterday, I’m sorry… you can tell me to talk to the hand or something because I’m sure I’m being a total wimp but […]

California, here we are!

Thank you to whoever prayed for our safe travel. Yesterday we safely arrived in the mid-afternoon after a very long train ride. As much as I enjoy the view and the journey, train travel is not for the faint of heart… and not for those who are tied to a tight schedule. We arrived a […]
