Am I hot or cold?

The answer is: I am fickle.  And so are you, I’d bet.  When it’s cold outside {like now}, we dream of the warmer days at the pool or barbecues on someone’s back porch.  And then we’re reminded of the endless swim meets, of the thick wall of heat that greets you when leaving the house, […]

It's snowing down south?

“It’s snowing down south?” Did your mom ever say that to you?  That’s the way mine would tell me my slip was showing. Here in Norfolk, we just don’t get snow.   We’re too close to the water and it always turns to cold rain.  Around here, the weathermen and women peak during the hurricane season […]

do you hear what I hear?

No one would ever accuse me of being a talented singer.  No one.  But, I do make a joyful noise around the holidays.  And so, I have my car radio tuned to our local Easy Listening station which from Thanksgiving to Christmas plays non-stop holiday schmaltz.  And I eat it up!  I sing all of […]

the sound of little girls

Gender-wise I am outnumbered 3 to 1 in my house.  The toilet seat is always up around here.  And my boys are LOUD!  They run, they jump, they break things and cause general mayhem everywhere, leaving behind a wake of legos, Nerf darts, snack crumbs and flatulence.  That’s what my little darlings are made of. […]

little baby c

This little girl was about 6 weeks old.  She is adorable and just starting to smile and show her burgeoning personality.  The session started late and it started to rain.  So much for natural light.  Refusing to use a flash, we got a little creative with shutter speeds and iso settings. Enjoy. SPL

Mister O

I had a teacher in high school that we affectionately called Mr. O.  This little guy here though doesn’t have a beard and doesn’t teach listless sophomores about details of Modern European History.  This new Mr. O has only been around for about two and a half weeks.   Isn’t he adorable?  It’s usually hard to […]

fun with templates

I had a little fun with some templates and my lake photos.  I can’t write much, because it’s my last day on the lake.  Enjoy. SPL

the color purple: i heart faces challenge

Today, I am entering an I Heart Faces Photo Challenge. I couldn’t get together with her until today. I have been avoiding all household responsibilities to get this in on time. Clair Bear here loves the color purple and was more than willing to oblige my happy snapping. Patient until the end, she made it […]
