Ice Storm

Posted by Picasa

I tried posting this once and the picture came up with the dreaded red X!

Well, this is the ice storm that knocked out our power for most of last week. it also fried my computer! I'm using Ken's Dell right now and feel like my arms have been cut off because all my artwork was is on the other one. We've downloaded a free trial version of the graphics program I use but it's the updated version so I'm having to learn how to use it.

I'm also trying to add a little button that will link to the my CafePress shop. Grrr, I feel so old and decrepit. I need to learn html. I've been all over the web looking for instructions. Finally I copied someone elses code and edited it with my link etc. It's too big right now and covering part of the body text so I'll have to make some changes.

Sorry, I'm talking to myself here.

Winter Moon

After two years of using the thing, I noticed that Ken's camera has a night setting on it! I had to try it out. Here's our old farmhouse on a cold winter's night just as the moon was rising.

When I'm out taking the dogs for their last walk before bedtime I love to stand in the driveway and see our house all lit up. A little haven of warmth amidst the dark, frigid landscape.

Ooh, and look closely. There are orbs! Some people think they're evidence of ghostly, mataphysical activity of some kind. I think it's just the reflection of the moon. But who knows.

Now, if each orb contained the image of the other half of all the odd socks that come out of the dryer, now that would be proof! There's an awful lot of metaphysical activity in the laundry room.
