It's almost the end of the season, regionals are just a week away. The shortstop took a steel cleat to the shin, then two nights later(playing against the same team) had a helmet plow in to her in the exact same spot... she'll be out a week(minimum) which isn't up for another four days. Who says softball isn't brutal?

I'm told time flies when your having fun ...it feels like time goes faster every day.
This is my husband of almost 20 years.
I hear the new trend is tattooed wedding bands. (note the tattooed ring finger on his left hand). We went together quite a few years ago and had the artist do a simple design I drew out. His is a slightly larger, more masculine version of mine. And no it didn't hurt much.. it didn't hurt at all in comparison to getting a ring caught on something.

This weeks job was repairing and painting this dining room and living room. The dining room went awesome violet (a sherwin williams color)... which wasn't too different from the original color. The upper photos were taken with my camera phone. They didn't really come out too bad. The true colors show much better in the lower shots taken with my SLR.
I had one more photo to include here but I decided against it. It was my husband and painting partner. Any time I want a shot of him I can't get cooperation.. I admit I point the camera at him pretty often. So of course, any time I'm taking a shot of a job(I take 'before & after' of all our work) there he is, like it or not, right in the middle of it.

I drove cross country going home from work today. I got a look at the little fat pony a neighbor keeps in the pasture across from their house. The snow is melting so I got a good look at his feet... long and all curled up.
This view was from a parade last Fall, reminding me tomorrow I'll stop and take a picture of the pony.

it's a sure sign Spring is on it's way... the Skunks are out.
This one was happily searching the grass in the backyard of todays job. I was a little concerned about getting out of the Jeep since it was less than 20ft away, but this guy was on a mission and I didn't seem to bother him.
btw, I took these photos from the safety of my vehicle. My husband saw a new baby lamb today, bouncing and dancing...too bad he doesn't carry a camera.

I'm neglecting my blog, it's been almost a month since I've been here.
This is our 2nd day of snow and the wind is suppose to pick up with 30mph gusts, so since school canceled I canceled work, giving me the perfect opportunity to add something here.
These barn shots are from last week. I took my youngest son for a haircut(actually he has his learners permit, I was being chauffeured) so this was a drive-by shooting. I need to go back alone to get more variety with different angles. Too bad it's on the North side of the road, the sunrise or sunset would be an awesome background.
This is the point of(my) interest.... I straightened, cropped and adjusted the levels to make it more a silhouette.

These 2 get pretty impatient when it comes time to feed. With all the snow we've got on the ground there's nothing to even nibble.
The barn and fence in the background couldn't be cropped out.... just a little bit of PS magic, spreading out the white, and the distractions are gone.
