PSF - Ice Skating

PhotoStory Friday
Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek

Snow with ice on top, what a lovely combo. Yesterday we woke up with the most beautiful white topped with the most shiny and glistening ice. I wanted pics, of course. I trudged out to the trees to get some of the ice covered limbs and skipped and skidded the entire way. Luckily I didn't drop my camera.

Can be so pretty.

So I go in and call it a success. Today, ice still on our driveway and deck. I grabbed my handy shovel and started trying to chip away at the frozen tundra. I must have looked like a real fool sliding all over the place. It would have been easier if I had my old ice skates. But I didn't even make a dent. However, I did clear the deck steps so that I don't have to carry the stupid dogs each time they want to potty. But I captured one more of my patio table while I was at it.

PSF - Have Bag, Will Travel

PhotoStory Friday
Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek

Packing up the family for a week's vacation. (well as soon as I get off the computer playing with pics) We are taking the kids on an airplane ride, something we haven't done in a few years. I am looking forward to some family time but not necessarily while corralling my gaggle thru airport security. Wish us luck! (and I will be sure to throw in a few vacation pics during the week)

PSF - Birthday Necklace

My oldest daughter is a jewelry hoard. She love all things girlie, dresses, tights, earrings, dance shoes and necklaces. She's also learning about birthdays. Her's is coming up in March so we have been talking much about where she would like her party. However, that means everyone's birthday is coming up. Well, actually my hubby's is next week. However, she thinks my birthday is next week as well, even though I have told her a gazillion times its in May. I guess she is still grasping the aspect of time.

Anyway, as my present she 'made' me this necklace crafted with pipe cleaners. However, she won't let me wear it!

PSF - Happy New Year's Obsessions

PhotoStory Friday
Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek

Happy New Year to all! Hope you had a great night. We went to dinner with friends and then slept in since the kiddos were at the Grandparents. Woo!

So new year comes new obsessions in photography. The first is I am gearing up a new website/blog and new logos and working on getting a portfolio together. What that means is, starting in 2009 I will attempt start taking on 'clients' (which really means friends) to start Portfolio Building sessions. If that goes well, maybe...just maybe, I will take on professional clients. Yes...I am thinking of taking the plunge, but just PT only (not to mention until June I will be finishing my MBA to include a 50 page thesis, so needless to say, I won't have a ton of free time). I just need new subjects to practice on cause my kids are tired of the looks of my camera. I am beyond nervous but I really need to start someplace so slow and steady it will be!

The second thing is I am going to do a 365 project for the year. Since I take tons of pictures each and every day anyway, I thought I would put together Project 365 of 2009.

2/365 - Jan 2nd

I will be keeping track of these both on Flickr and on a separate 365 blog that I created.

Oh and I will NOT be doing all Self Portraits for this project. I plan to take one shot each day of anything I want. :) No one wants to see that many pics of me anyway.

So....big year, big obsessions, big goals. Wish me luck.
