January 11, 2011
Today the dreaded Tuesday ended up with a pretty sweet twist. We had snow that didn’t tamper with my commute and I got to go home early! Doesn’t get much better than that. Unless its candy!
My favorite subject so far has been my pup. Mostly because she is hilarious, fun, and just a gigantic beast. Each Monday I’m going to post a picture of her. As you can tell from the picture she is quite scary. That is why the postman felt it was necessary to leave a dangerous dog warning in my mailbox saying that they were scared of her because she was BIG, HUGE, TALL!
doesn’t she look frightening!
I didn’t know what to post today, I ventured out in the backyard and took some pictures as it flurried all day. mostly my hands got cold and I didn’t get any really great shots. I did try to work on some high key editing and managed to create this shot. Not super exciting but I’m okay with that.
We had the first real snow of winter earlier in December. Today, however, was the first official snow of 2011. It wasn’t much more than a dusting, but I definitely saw some flakes out there! Most of the time, snow is associated with school closings, long commutes on icy roads, cold frigid temps, shoveling sidewalks, long dreary day with little sunlight. Those are some of the unpleasantries that come with winter. Fortunately for me, snow has symbolic of really great things for me like meeting new people (my husby), marriages ( I feel an anniversary coming on), and best of all furriest of all puppies! I wanted to take a picture of the snow today but it was sadly too dark when I got home. I’m settling for the next best picture- the first day I met Neko. This was also the first day she met snow!
Tuesday is undoubtedly my least favorite day of the week. Mostly, I just have a longer work day which makes me grumble a bit. But, in order to stay positive, every week I try to think of something in the morning to cheer me up. And what is more cheerful than a child swinging, especially when they are as cute as my niece Amelia! I am not sure which shot I like better the original or the attempted edited version.
Oh to be a kid again!!!!!
So I was going to post this awesome picture Karl took in honor of the first Monday of the year when Coffee might be one of the most essential parts of starting off the day right!
But then I came home to my little sweet Neko who decided to try a hand in making cornbread but realized that there were other ingredients besides cornmeal needed…
