Menu Plan Monday Jan 6

It has been a busy weekend!

We spent the weekend out-of-town visiting some friends.  When we were leaving Ian told me he was angry because he didn’t want to go home yet.

Our friend made Ian a fire in the fire pit so Ian could roast his hot dog Saturday night.  It was a toasty 27° out.

Sunday was spend unpacking and recuperating so I needed to make this post quickly!  I did go to my Pinterest page to try to find some new things to cook.

I will leave you with a picture of Sid and the reason I usually feed him yogurt instead of letting him do it himself.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Layers


I haven’t participated in the weekly photo challenge in a while.  Mostly because I just couldn’t get the picture taken in time.  I would have an idea for the topic, but execution was just not in the game plan.

I was able to get a couple of shots in.  This week’s challenge topic is Layers.

Originally this picture was supposed to have another layer.  Birds.  I am pretty sure the worms were out because the ground was covered in birds.  Even though I was inside using a zoom lens to try not to disturb them, they got spooked and flew away.

Weekly Photo Challenge: The Hue of You

1 Comment

This week’s photo challenge is “The Hue of You

The Hue of me is sunshine and fields of spring time flowers.

But it is October.  And those hues aren’t really available right now.  I know I could have searched my archives for a picture, because I am sure I have lots of those.  But I didn’t want it to be an old picture.

I also didn’t want to take a picture of something else with those colors.  Because the hue of me is more than a synthetic color.

So I decided this week picture should be “The Hue of the Season”




Happy Shooting
