Long time no me

Wow, has it really been since 2011? I haven't posted anything here since then? I guess Twitter and Facebook have taken all of my time.  Here are a few pictures from Halifax where we stopped on our Eastern vacation this summer.

New post will happen

The last time I tried to update Blogger wouldn't let me in. Now that it will I need to upload some pictures to post. :-)

Zero degrees Fahrenheit and pretty pictures.

It got down to zero degrees Fahrenheit here last night. And that was the warmest temperature in the area. We decided to drive to breakfast as neither of us was ready for a walk in that kind of cold.

After breakfast we decided to drive to the beach to see how far the ice went out. It was so gorgeous that we drove back home to get my camera. Here are some of the pictures.


We were really bundled up but still didn't stay out long.


You can see the pier way out there. The only reason I might consider getting a new camera is that I'd like more than a 3x optical zoom.

You can't tell from the pictures, but every place there was open water it was steaming.

Just plain brrrrrrr

The trees down by the water were covered in frost.

It's supposed to get back closer to freezing tomorrow and I'm ready for it to be warmer. But this was fun for just one day. :-)

Happy New Year!

Hi, just thought I'd get a post in before too much time had past in 2011. I hope everyone had a good holiday and isn't getting too much snow now. :-)

Fall lunch

I just learned how to make butternut squash soup. It sounded good today, so Ichabod made some corn muffins to go with it. I also picked some of the last flowers from my garden for the season.

Crickets are chirping

Hi, I haven't forgotten about my blog. I've had a fun vacation, worked a lot, and just lived life since my last post. My heartfelt gratitude to anyone who is reading this now and cared to check on me. :-)

January 2010

Hi, I thought I would post something before the first month of the year had past. I've also turned verification back on for comments. I didn't really want to but I've been getting spammed like crazy.

The winter weather can stop any time now, but otherwise things are going fine here. How are you all doing?

Christmas post, with pictures and everything!

Hi, I know I've not been here much. I've been fine, just haven't been in the mood to post. But, for the first time since my mother died, in 2006, I felt like decorating for Christmas. I don't do a lot, but I do love the lights.

Last week there was a silent auction at work for charity. One of things on which I bid and won was a little silver tree. Tonight I bought some blue bulbs for it.




I decided to put the lights up in the area that was originally a front porch. It's kinda dark there so they show up nicely.



I hope the season is treating you all well. And I hope to get to all of your sites along the way.

Lame Post

I know. I can hear the crickets chirping here, too. Just haven't been in the blog world a lot lately. Finally got everything re-settled into the living. And Ichabod gave up the apartment a couple of weeks ago and is back home full-time again.

I'll try to get around to see everyone.
