A sign of spring.
I thought spring had sprung last weekend. Especially, when I found these pussywillows. A sure sign of spring! Until I looked out the window last night and it was a total white out. Snow...again? For real?? How can that be? With more of the white stuff predicted in the forecast??

Springtime is the land awakening. The March winds are the morning yawn.

Well, maybe next week it will be Spring again.

My pool shark.

Yup. That is what he is these days. A pool shark. His Daddy took him to the pool table store to buy a new stick. Why I don't know because there is already a half of dozen of sticks to choose from.

But, apparently, (because I am still learning all about this game of pool) a stick is not just a stick. You have to have "special" sticks. Special sticks that are also cherry red at the top.

And, he hasn't put the special, cherry red pool stick down since. Now, if I could only talk my husband into going to the Nikon camera store and buying that "special lens". Hee, hee.

That's all.
I only asked if I could take one nice picture of him.....and that's all I got. That's nine year old boys for ya....I guess.

Breaking out the bike.
It has been a long, cold winter. So, in recent days, with a wee bit more of warmer weather in the forecast....that meant for breaking out of the bike (which is way too small, I might add).

Which in turn makes for some "happy faces"!

That Girl.
Never have I seen such a beautiful girl
She is the queen of my soul
She is my heart beat
Who's that girl?
She walks graciously
She has the heart of gold
Beauty abounds by her inside out
Courage is her name
Who's this girl?
Dignity is her last name
Those who are low self esteemed
Are intimidated by her
This girl is ambitious
She is the heartbeat of her universe
Who is this girl?
Let me tell you about this girl
She is intelligent
Brilliant is an understatement
This girl is
Always will be
Always has been

Solar System 101.
I had my lesson on the Solar System this fine Sunday. Illustrations and artwork included and all provided by the one and only Miss Lizzie Lou.

Pay attention though because she is one tough cookie when it comes to teaching.

Today, she performed her magic on me. She talked me in to taking her to the dollar store for silly putty. And, of course, I agreed.

What is the most important element of photography:

Light? Moment? Composition? You are wrong. - It's magic. - Anonymous

But, no magic was performed on the drive home. I got a flat tire and had to call the hubby to come rescue us! Wishing for the disappearing act to happen then.

A few taken from the wintry mix we had last week. The top of the mountain was all iced over. Loved the way the ice was shinning from the winter evening sun.
