This week, Ailsa of Where's My Backpack fame, gave the theme FRAME for her Travel Theme Photo Challenge. I like this theme because even interesting or good photos can be elevated to something a bit more special in how they are framed. Let's see if I have proven this point somewhat... Reflections - I could have … Continue reading I’ve been framed!
Is it possible that I'm a dreamer? Do I spend too much time with my head in the clouds? Or my nose in the air? Or my eyes on the sky? Maybe, just maybe. Because when I was getting photos together for Ailsa's Travel Theme Challenge theme BELOW, I realized how much time I spend … Continue reading Me…from down under
TRAVEL THEME: LETTERS Alisa at Where's my backpack has a travel photo challenge, and as this appears to be my new hobby (challenges), I thought I'd jump into this one. When I first saw the theme, I thought of letters. You know, snail mail letters, like this one I received from one of the busiest blogger/vloggers … Continue reading I Believe in Signs!
This is where they'll be this time tomorrow... Would YOU say no? No, didn't think so.

Yeah...me too. Hopefully I'll come back … Continue reading SOMEONE has to be the Grownup!

Not every diaper clad newborn is all sugar and spice, and everything nice and innocence is their poker face! You will recall at the end of my Year in Review post, I thumbed my nose at Baby 2015, telling him I was ready for him and to Bring. It. On! Remember? DO NOT DO THAT … Continue reading Best Beware of Babies dat Wear the Crown of New Year’s Day
2014 - The Year in Review I had the title typed before I saw the email with the gift from the WP helper monkeys that I assume we all got. And I know this is a bit longer than usual, but if the ultimate goal is to kill a baby (the new years baby silly … Continue reading And Now…Something Completely Un-Original!
Labor Day. The last holiday before the official end of summer. And this is a steamy one for sure. Humidity levels are through the roof so if you venture into the sun, you'll braise...not bake 🙄 It is a day to celebrate the working person. A day to 'not' work [as long as you don't work in retail, … Continue reading Laboriously Laboring and Languidly Lingering this Loathingly Liquid Labor Day
There are some things that are just so much better when you do them in a barn! Whether it's squarein', folkin', cloggin', or stompin', the dances are da bomb. It could be fiddlin' or pickin' and grinnin' too, the music hits all the right notes. If stichin' and bitchin' is your thing, a quilting bee … Continue reading The Barn Dance

By dinner time tomorrow, our soggy, box-full, furniture-empty, house will feel like home despite it all. He leaves the deep freeze on the shores of the Arctic Ocean tonight and will arrive on the unusually frozen southern shores of the Atlantic tomorrow. Knowing he had not planned on bringing his arctic gear, an emergency phone … Continue reading One Day
It's official...we're on the road again. Tradin' in 'Ya can't get theyah from heeyah' for 'Ya'll come back now, y'hear?' The Green Mountains of Vermont, the land of my birth...to the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. Before the snow flies and on the wings of the snow birds, we'll be gone.

Sigh. Big sigh. Bigger sigh. It's BEEN a coupla days ya know? If I had my camera, I think I'd know where to go from here. But...as it happens, I don't. Also as it happens...I won't.

I cannot, in all honesty, say it thrilled me when I heard the kids had gotten a Trampoline. With a 12-year-old and 3-year-old on that behemoth bouncy bone breaker, I had visions of head wounds and little fingers and toes caught in the webbing, and mid-air collisions that would result in trips to the emergency room. … Continue reading The Laddie is a Tramp
