Today is the final day of my second 366 photo project and while this is the end of one project, I know the New Year will be bringing me new adventures.  New adventures I hope to start this weekend.  It's going to be cold but my heart will be filled with warmth as I move on to next phase in my life.

So here I am, with my first of many blank pages and I am excited to fill them with beautiful photographs, words of wisdom and a lot of humor!

Today is where your book begins
The rest is still unwritten

In The Rain and Mist.....


It's January and almost 50F.  This is not typical weather for this time of year.  Rain for the last two days have made getting anything outdoors done, next to impossible.  Impossible except for my neighbor Dan who was taking his Christmas lights off the house tonight, in the dark, in the rain.

Oh well, time to curl up and get a good night's sleep.

This is the mystery of the quotient, quotient
Upon us all, upon us all a little rain must fall

Time Flutters By.....


Just dreaming of Spring and one of my favorites....butterflies.

If nothing ever changed, there'd never be butterflies.

Mr. Blue Sky


So yes, even though it's January 1st, 2017, my 366 project is not done.  I started a few days into 2016, unsure if I wanted to do another yearlong project or not.

I am glad I did and while I know I will miss it, I am looking forward to the break.

2017 did not disappoint.  What a beautiful morning we woke up to and the clouds and sky after we left the movie were just as wonderful.

Here's to filling the blank, 365 page book with memories and moments we never want to forget!

Never get tired of the blue skies!

What would New Year's Eve be without some fireworks!  Now, I was barefoot on my front porch and it took a sparkler or four but I got a shot I liked.  I might even stay awake to see the ball drop!

Tomorrow, is the first blank page of a 365 page book.  Write a good one!

Little Things......


Opened up a package and found this lovely little gift from a dear friend who knows me so well.
It should be an ornament on the tree but I think I am going to keep it out where I can enjoy it more than just a few weeks a year.

It's the little things that matter most.

Mill Pond Road


On our way to our annual O'Brien family Christmas, we passed this little side street and the waterfall was simply lovely.  I knew I had to make a stop for a few pictures on our way back to Pittsburgh.  We still had some snowflakes falling and it made for a lovely scene.  I would have loved to have gotten closer but it was private property and well...I did not want to make a scene with the kids there...LOL
