Happy January 109th!


Feb 2, 2019 – Offical start of open season on groundhogs!


They say that when you’re doing what you love, you never work a day in your life.  If that’s true, I’ve NOT been working a crazy amount these days.


I couldn’t resist the blossoming of Spring!

April Fool’s…

…or “Hurry Home?”  I couldn’t really decide which way to go.  Complete inside joke that only a few will understand, but in the meantime, enjoy April Fool’s Day.


Wonder how long it’ll take to get a text…?


My home office is in the basement and has absolutely no connection to the outside world.  I need to get out every once in a while.  If not to see what the weather is like, at least for my own sanity!


Come On…

Come on Spring – kinda tired of riding my bike inside all the time.  Need some variety.



Due to extreme temperatures and weather conditions, Spring will be operating on a 2-month delay.


I’m giving up Winter for Lent.  Who’s with me?!


Second Spring

It’s was an awesome day for a Kidz Fest on the Old Town Walking Mall in Winchester.  After shooting an event at my church, I headed out and walked right into this.  After all the rain and flooding over the past week, it was good to see blue sky again.  As I walked up the alley to leave the mall, the smell coming from the new Cajun restaurant in the Taylor Hotel made me want to go in.  I will be back to dine.  Yum!

Sure Sign

I know most people try to avoid having them in their yards.  I leave them so I know for sure that Spring is here.  Yeah, that’s my story…

Sure Sign

A sure sign that Spring has “sprung”

Almost There…

Almost There...

It’s pretty awesome how quickly and timely (for the Apple Blossom Festival) all the flowers and trees just pop around here.



I’ve been waiting a long time to put some color back into the photos around here.

Open Arms

Welcoming “Spring” with open arms.  Although 2 hours on the indoor trainer is good for me, I think I’m going to crack if this weather doesn’t get better soon.  Really looking forward to normal outdoor recreational activity in the very near future.

The plants so desperately want to start blossoming.
