“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” — Elliott Erwitt

Smell the Roses....

 The temperature was still ok this morning, but by Thursday and Friday it could be 0 at night.

 Today Little Wonder
 and Phoebe kept me company in the barn.

 As soon as we got back to the house LW picked up his new toy and it
has been his constant companion.  Last night he would carry it in his mouth while he played
soccer with a little yellow ball....all over the kitchen.  I tried to take a video, but it was too dark.
Class at 10:30.

 LW would not leave Pam, LuAnne or Shamra alone.

 Gary brought home an arrangement that was from the gala we went to the other night, along
with a bucket full of roses.

 I'm turning the centerpiece into a little Christmas tree.  The flowers will never last until Christmas, so I will replace them with greens.

 More toy time.

Leftover sloppy Joes for dinner with a carrot/apple/craisin salad.
 We had a board meeting tonight, and I was home by 8:45.
This is the Christmas tree that was placed in Sagawa Park (in the Village).
It is a beauty!
Enough for today.
Night all.


  1. Those are some talented artists
    Lily & Edward

  2. How beautiful! I may try some branches next year to decorate with. Love the minimal effect.
    LW sure is growing! He sure is a friendly one too.
    We are in the subzero temps and are looking forward to another big snow.

  3. LW is a riot with his toy and his being mr. personality with the class. Beautiful roses too.
