And for my next trick: 15 Jan 2007, storms across many parts of the Midwestern United States. We didn't so much get a storm as a little bit of snow. Spent awhile outside in my wonderfully warm and comfy winter boots shovelling.

Long day. Went to a funeral. Visited college professors. Visited a friend and her baby. Total road hours - over 12. Chilling out, thinking - crap I need to take a picture. Bill, always there for me. (he hates having his picture taken.)

I can't believe it snowed again today. I left the flowers from the funeral in my car overnight in freezing temperatures with no water. Some of them did not survive, others did.

This sign is next to the parking garage I use for work. It caught my eye yesterday and I remembered my camera today. It's funny because it butts right by the wall - and you wonder where the detour is.

Had cause to be at work early today. Very early. I don't usually come in until noon on Wed because I have only a night class that day, but this week I was helping Jim with his class and had some other things to do. When needing to get up early - I sometimes treat myself to coffee. Today, soy grande mocha no whipped. I can't think without my phone and I can't get in without my keys. . .

THEY ARE TRYING TO KILL ME!!!! So, our snow has been melty and the walk has been out to get me all week, I did fall on my butt once. Now it's the ICICLES!! I was leaving the house this morning and looked up and there they were looking all sharp and pointy and dangerously deadly. They were mostly gone when I got home this afternoon - HA HA, I win!

Been getting some work done around the house. After a few minutes of up and down grabbing different tools I decided to retrieve the tool belt from the basement. I love my tool belt. Not very full for today's operation - 2 scraper/pryers, 1 hammer, 1 utility knife, 1 red carpenter's pencil, and, of course, the tape measure. I wasn't actually measuring anything, but I'll lose the tape measure if it leaves the belt.

--Thanks Allan! This photo diary thing is a great idea, I think my skills are improving. Maybe to the point I can convince myself to by an DSLR.

Lazy Sunday morning for what turned out to be a busy day. We had some cinnamon rolls then I went home and shovelled the new snow. I then painted the back bedroom and did some homework. Wish I had that much energy every day. Maybe I need cinnamon rolls for breakfast every day! NOT!

I teach a night class that runs late and in the winter that means time waiting for you car to warm up. Our parking garage is a little spooky, so I lock the doors and sit in the car, which is too bad because there is a lot I could take pictures of from the garage. :D

You have some great macros here, I really like the old typewriter keys, and the other shot is that stands out for me is the orange road sign against that cool blue background, I'll drop in from time to time and say hello, regards, peter

Feeling a little better today after being sick basically since late afternoon Tuesday. I still have some congestion, but am not quite as tired. Man, been drinking A LOT of fluids.

Spent some time on the back bedroom today. Got the carpet and padding ripped up and about half the staples removed from the floor. Of course I just found out that floor isn't finished the same color as the rest in the house, but I'm sure I'll make do. Just another thing in the long project.
