the dugout


Saturday was a cold, all day tournament. It got progressively colder with each game, which made the day seem even longer. Our girls came in 2nd place.

..........more softball



I don't often stand behind the backstop during a game. This was an entirely different viewpoint than what I'm usually shooting, intending to get our star pitcher in action.. I can really feel the momentum in both of these shots.

the pitcher


I don't get to catch the boys games very often once the season starts.. I'm usually at the girls softball games. I managed to get to the start of tonights dbl header... so I parked myself at center field with my big zoom.

20 years in 7 days


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.

awesome violet




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.

testing Daisy


.

I'm trying for a little larger photo, hoping flickr does the trick.
My long tailed Boxer Daisy, daring me to grab her toy... just so she can grab it and run.

baseball


the high school boys had their first game of the season last night... it was a cold soggy start. and the diamond didn't have lights so it was an early night.

old school




Sitting, waiting in the parking lot on a rainy afternoon for the kids to get out of practice..... this is the view. The old high school may be one of the first casualties from budget cuts.

not today


My timing wasn't right today, I was earlier than yesterday, the pony wasn't up.

a reminder


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.
