Memories, Dreams and Reflections| 2014

Me I Love You Still Laughing The hair! Winter Wonder(land) I had no wonderland pictures from this winter, again. It was dry and brown and not very wonderful. But I had made these banana muffins this winter and thought they were a winter wonder. Birthday Friends I Was Inspired I had seen this “Monster Eye”Continue reading “Memories, Dreams and Reflections| 2014”

Scavenger Hunt Sunday

Dress Up My brother said Meezie got home from school and went and changed her clothes for Nana’s birthday dinner. She had jeans on with the dress, but is still all dressed up.

Scavenger Hunt Sunday: Day of the Tread

  Day of the Tread is an annual event in Albuquerque that supports Casa Esperanza…a home where families not from the area can live while their family member is being treated in the hospital. After not feeling ready last year, my dad decided to do the 100 mile bike ride this year. (He did 100Continue reading “Scavenger Hunt Sunday: Day of the Tread”

Hay Around

Good. Meezie really liked feeding the goats at the pumpkin patch. And petting the piglets. Random.   This woman paints all these hay bales every year. This year the animal ones were new. And so cute. Fun. I thought this little girl was too cute to not snap her photo. I have been playing aroundContinue reading “Hay Around”


Sandia Mountains, ABQ, NM Everything about this photo tells me it is fall. Look at all the texture and elements just in that little square. The clouds always roll off of the mountains like big burly waves crashing into the shore. The blue sky playing peek a boo with the white and gray clouds. AndContinue reading “Stormy”

Serendipitous Saturday

My old girl has a torn ACL and can’t walk that far, so I had turned around to takeContinue reading “Serendipitous Saturday”

64 Shades of Color: Apricot

I am tired this week. I average over 20,000 steps a day just at work. And that’s on hard concrete. I feel I have aged 5 years in the last 6 months. Ughh. So as soon as I get into my house I need to seriously look for another job. (Shh, don’t tell anyone IContinue reading “64 Shades of Color: Apricot”

Scavenger Hunt Sunday

AutumnBeing as the leaves are pretty green still you might wonder if this is really autumn. Here in the Albuquerque area, the Balloon Fiesta represents that autumn is really here (and has since 1972). I realize taking photos yesterday morning, I could use a telephoto lens. I would have loved to have better close ups.Continue reading “Scavenger Hunt Sunday”
