Mrs. Cardinal, Day 31

My sister has a bird feeder outside her sun room. I was visiting yesterday and there were so many different birds there, however I thought Mrs. Cardinal looked the sweetest... Mr. Cardinal was busy watching from afar. I'll post his pic another time.

Freckles Meets Mailbox in 2005, Day 30

This is what the mailbox looked like when my hubby gave it to me for my birthday four years ago. I am now renovating the wood parts as I described in yesterday's photo entry.

Beagle Mail Box, Day 29

This mailbox used to be shaped just like a beagle. The box is metal and all the beagle appendages were wood. However, the wood rotted. All new and freshly painted beagle parts will be replaced when the warmer weather returns. I will furnish an updated photo when the "renovation" work is completed.

Tie A Yellow Ribbon...Day 26

I tied this on my tree when the young man across the street from me went to Iraq two years ago and vowed to keep it there until his return. He came back safely last year but I can't seem to remove it yet - I want to see the rest return. I feel it's kind of luck a good luck charm.

My Parents, Day 24

At first glance this photo is somewhat out of focus, with my dad being very out of focus. I was disappointed in it. But, after looking at it for a few minutes, with my dad slightly blurry and my mom more in focus, I felt something conveyed in the way he was looking at her. At 84 and 85, there won't be a whole lot more of these photos to capture.

Portion of window behind altar - depicts resurrection. Whole window is impressive but people were blocking a portion of it.

Study In Candelight, Day 21

Photographed by candlelight with camera resting on a stack of books. An exercise in low-light photography. Ended up with more of a "dreamy" quality....

Timing Is Everything, Day 17

During a fair weather day, my son was juggling the hockey ball on his stick. I happened to have my camera and captured the ball in a perfect position. What a clown!!!

Anticipation, Day 16

Christmas morning 2008. My son had to wait for his sister before he could open the stocking treasures. Not sure whether it's anticipation or exasperation...

Water In Mid Air, Day 13

I must have taken 25 pictures to try to capture the fountains in EPCOT shooting tubes of water through the air. I had a lot of fun trying and I got a couple of successful captures. Photo was taken on 8/23/08.

Big Project, Day 12

I won knitting lessons in a raffle. I found, after taking four classes, that I love it. Here is my latest challenging project - a knitted "quilt". These are the five colors.

Concert, Day 11

A high school band (made up of top 90 students in the Archdiocese) concert was extraordinary today. They sounded professional.

Glimmer Of Spring, Day 10

My husband brought me flowers. I loved them...a little splash of color as a reminder that spring will really return in a few months.

A Summer Visitor, Day 9

We had a visitor in August hanging around on our deck - Cute isn't he/she, at least as far as praying mantises go!

Flood Waters, Day 5

Our water heater went some time during the night. We found out 'cause we had no water for a shower in the AM, but the basement floor had plenty.

Me, With Bad Headache

My puffy eyes this morning with a nasty, nasty headache - best idea I could come up with today. Headaches seem to be my "new best friend" anymore. Just thought I'd share.
