66/365 We played ball today.
Even though this is out of focus, I had to select this as my photo today. It’s an emotionally perfect photo for me because it’s a side of my senior dog I don’t get to see very often and I treasure times when he’s playful like this.

56/365 Tournament Day
Last weeks tournament was sunny and 65. Today was cloudy, 27 plus wind. I must say I much prefer the sunny and 65 weather much more.

Restraint goes right out the door when the little girl in a green vest shows up at your house. How could I say no?

Today was a snowy day with icy streets, but that didn’t keep us from celebrating with some Texas BBQ and homemade German Chocolate Cake. Love you Dad! xo

Our best idea

February 27, 2014 in Daily Drivel by Kelly

If you haven’t been able to tell by my 365 project, I live a pretty simple life. I’m devoted to my family, I like simplicity and I am nonstop entertained (and sometimes overwhelmed) by these two punks.

And while these photos are not the “best”, I adore them because it shows their brotherly relationship.

I admit, sometimes the testosterone level in this house is bit more than I can take.

There is no preparation for the onslaught, non-stop, zest for life, living on the edge that boys can have.

You have no idea how many times I’ve felt strapped to a rocket and dizzy from the whirlwind of those early imaginative, adventurous days.

But now that we are nearing the end of a Junior and Freshmen year, I see an empty nest looming in the distance and it makes every moment of now so very precious to me and shines a light (as it has so many times before)  that these two were the very best idea my beloved and I ever had.

52/365 Georgia O’Keeffe’s old art books
Today I toured the Panhandle Plains Historical Museum to see the “Red Landscape” painting by Georgia O’Keeffe. Then I went upstairs to the Resource Center and saw some of her old art books that were found in her trunk that she left behind in Canyon, TX at the Shirley house. Here is her signature in one of those books.

Project 365 Week 7

February 17, 2014 in Photography, Project 365 by Kelly

#This week started off with an awesome, perfect snowflake and ended with a family movie. My life isn’t the most exciting, but it’s mine and I love it.
Here’s a look at Week 7.

41/365 Power Plant Snow
An interesting phenomena set up this morning as some of the power plants are causing something similar to lake effect snow. We have a really cold airmass in place, and as the plants release the heat and moisture from its stacks, condensation occurs and light snow is beginning to develop. With northeasterly winds in place, it’s pushing those areas of light to even moderate snow right down toward us. (Can you tell I copied this from the weatherman?)41/365 Power Plant Snow

46/365 Today I watercolored
It took me less than 5 minutes to throw some watercolor on this sketch from a note card I received last week. A fun little creative minute :) 46/365 Today I watercolored

47/368 The Monuments Men
Today we went to see The Monuments Men. It was such a good movie. I am so thankful for those men and the many precious works that were able to recover.47/365 The Monuments Men
