used and left to deal...

For a number of years  I've driven by this old barn hidden in the brush and trees. Each time I would pass, I would tell myself I need to capture it before it's gone. Well, darned if I didn't find a minute to stop and do just that. I'm really glad I did. It turned out even better then I had hoped.

I'll bet this old barn could relate some great stories if it could talk.

Like most things, it's served it's purpose and no long any use to anyone.
so, it sits in the brush and undergrowth to deteriorate.

Someday, it will be gone like most of us. But, thanks to my will be remembered forever.

I have a great day, see you tomorrow.

Early to rise, early to bed...

One of those mornings, my honey wasn't feeling well last night so it was a fairly sleepless evening. She has a lot of problems with her neck and see's a Dr to realign it at least once a week. Last night she had a bad spell. Lucky enough she toughed it out all night and I took in first thing this morning.

This is one of the instruments they use to realign her. 

But, it is always miserable waiting for your turn...

Nature is wonder-full

Really had a great day today. It stopped snowing and it started raining again, as usual. ( love my rain ). And it melted ALL that beautiful snow away. Oh, darn. (right).

The worms must be happy as well. They were surfacing all over the back yard and the birds were having a banquet.

We don't always get a chance to see a woodpecker that isn't in the trees around here, but, today the yard was full of them. Love it.

notice, not a lick of snow to be had. If you back at yesterdays post you'll be surprised at the difference.

Back to watching the Olympics. See you again tomorrow, I hope.

First snow of 2014.

Okay, I've had enough now, it can melt and go away. I had a chance to take a few pictures and even my honey made good use of my camera this morning...

We don't often get all that much snow around here, so when we do, we have to make the best of it.

We have had a lot of plants already starting to bloom and

But that's okay too. It's Sunday and I love Sundays. We get to sleep in as late as we want to. Have a great breakfast, play on the computer , and just relax all day.

My favorite part is the breakfast part. We have a tendency to slide just a little on Sundays...MMMM

If my heart last long enough, I'll see ya tomorrow.

must be our turn

 I am NOT a cold ( below freezing ) cold person. How ever I would rather it be cold then too hot. So, I'm ready.

I look like I should be holding a staff and herding sheep. But, some friends are playing Soccer this weekend and I want to be ready to take pictures.

I'm now going to go practice drinking hot chocolate. See you tomorrow.

A great sport weekend

Everyone is out of their mind with the Seattle Seahawks going to the Super Bowl this Sunday. But,  that is only the beginning of our sporting weekend.

Friday night I found out that a great friend of mine who had injured his leg and was unable to play Basketball for some time. Was  back on the court this weekend.  I couldn't wait to grab my camera and watch him do his magic.


Then the next morning we had to rise and shine to eat a little breakfast before we headed out for and EARLY morning Soccer game. After a fantastic breakfast, we headed out the watch  Jacey and Natalie ( twin sisters ) play the first of the new season's Soccer games.

This whole team of young ladies are so great to watch in action. We are slowly but surely learning all the team member personally.

We are so lucky in the Northwest.

 I have to admit, we have been so lucky this winter in the Northwest. We have had a few days of really cold earlier in the year, but, nothing like the midWest or the East coast.

My wife and I took a little stroll today and I just happen to have my camera  handy. Let me share a little of what we " endured" today.

We stopped my one of our many local lakes in the area.

We thought about a little picnic for lunch but with a hardy 42 degrees, we thought it might be a little COLD.

Thanks for stopping by, see you tomorrow.

You have to have just the right one...

 My lovely wife has a taste for a perticular coffee drink that she gets at one of those large commercial stores ( Costco ). It's a frozen latte.

Now, we must have at least six store in our immediate area.  And she has tried coffee from all of them. However the one she loves the best is , of course, the fartherest away...LOL. Almost downtown Seattle. So when we go she stocks up on them and puts them in the freezer for later.

That means that once every 10 days or so we take a little road trip. I've gotten to where I really look forward to the trip. Thanks goodness the area we go to in the store is right in the front. This store is HUGE.

It's nice to know that we aren't the only one on this pilgrimage. Now matter how early or how late we get there, the place is always packed.

So much for my day today. Hope to see you tomorrow.

Super Bowl playoffs.

I am SO glad we are winding down for the Super Bowl playoffs. The whole town has gone out of their minds with all the hype. It's great , but, enough is enough.

I think if I see one more of anything in Green and Blue I am going to scream !!

But, for now we get a repreave for a couple of weeks before the big game.
Time enough to restock the goodies for the game...LOL

This has pretty much been my whole day today. And I got to enjoy it with my wife, so, all is well and good.

Hope to see you next time, thanks for stopping by.

I really dislike shopping

 Not just any shopping, just ...ya , all shopping now that I think of it. And today was one of those days. The weather was sunny but cool and it was a great day to be out. Even though I'm sure I could have thought of a lot of other things I could find to do on the computer at home where it's warm.

The wife made it easier for me by narrowing down my shopping list for me. She's a peach that way. So I set off to get our groceries for the week.

coming or going, I'm not sure. I stopped long enough a long the way to snap this old barn. As I drove by it was like it was laughing at me.

Plus, I thought it was kinda cool looking.

A little futher down the road I took notice of an old bent fence post. Like he was point my way to the store...hahaha.

Oh, well, tomorrow is going to be a better day.
Playoff football games and I got LOTS of goodies at the store....LOL

Thanks for stopping by...

Hey everyone, I'm not a BIG fan of FaceBook, but, I have joined a group there intitled " Flowers throught the lens". And it's a lot of fun. There are some very talented people sharing their photos there.

I posted a few today...

See ya a little later.

Sun and sports. What a day...

 Our Seattle weather has been so great this winter so far. We took in a great Soccer game with some young friends of ours... love to watch these kids play.

It's like the action never ends until they've WON.

Friday, January 10, 2014

Today has been one of those days that  just seems to NEVER end. From the time I got up  my whole days has been one big mistake. I think we have one of those from time to time.  If we want it or's there to stay.

I've done my best to keep it all to myself. No sense ruining my wife's day as well.

Too cold or wet to really go out with the camera and I have taken so many pictures here at home that I don't think there is much of the house you haven't already been witness to.

So, for today I think I might pull down a movie and grab a cup of tea and just relax. Tomorrow is always better.

Thanks again for dropping by.

After years and years with the same old washing machine, we finally got us a new one. It seems funny to have ALL the knobs work. ( lol ) Now, we have to give it a test run....maybe TOMORROW.

But, in the meantime, I'm going to sit back and enjoy a few of my honey's choc. chip cookies and spot of tea and honey...

See ya tomorrow.

It is only the first of the year, not even the first week of the year and already we are showing signs of spring here in the Northwest. Can you believe that? Check this out.

I'm really afraid we are going to get some really cold weather in the next few weeks and kill all of these wonderful new plants.
