Monday morning Nativity Terrarium..

I didn't have any work to do this morning. All my shopping is done, my cards are sent, my baking is done and my laundry is totally caught up.....NOT!!! Oh well time for a little craft! I bought this tiny nativity many years ago at the dollar store (i think). I have been growing many plants for terrarium building. Plus I have all the stuff you,charcoal, soil, trees and moss. I even had some drift wood for the stable laying around. Oh what fun! I love the tiny world of terrariums! What better way to be reminded of the reason for the season. The birth of our Savior! Thanks for stopping by:)

Doggie card or NO doggie card. That is the question...

Ok so the past two years I have sent out a doggie card to all Eddie, Charlie and Sadie's dog friends. Some may call me crazy. This year I tried to get some pics of the group when we had our first snow. Was that in October? I think they all look very sweet in the pics I got with Hana's reluctant help. Hana and I were cracking up because Charlie loves his Martha Stewart sweater. But do I go through the trouble of making a card and sending it? Not to mention the expense! There is very little thanks in doing it and none of their dog friends send out cards:( Well you will have to wait and see if "crazy dog lady" strikes again. Thanks for stopping by! (it's been a while)

Cloud crazy...

I love clouds. They are beautiful. They are heaven.

Now here is a little photography lesson.  This picture here is taken at
Shutter speed 90,  ISO 400, F.or aperture 2.8.  Ugly huh?

This one is straight out of camera or SOOC.
Shutter speed 90  ISO 400 and f. 11  So you see by only changing the aperture a few clicks the color is brought to life.  A higher aperture will produce brilliant color.

This is with a little contrast.

Now if you have a camera-learn to use it:)
Thanks for stopping by!

25 years wedded Bliss to Bill!

A one night get-a-way was in order.  Well actually a 10 night vacay in Hawaii was REALLY in order:)
Here is a list of what we did in 48 hours...
ate and drank
cruised by Bill Gates house
went to wine country and made wine.
went to the Spa
and enjoyed each others company...still!
 Our kids gave us the a gift of going to a cellar to make wine and eat a 4 course meal with wine pairing.  It was so much fun.  I recommend this at Covington Cellars.  Thanks Alex, Levi and Hana...You really blew us away and we love you!
 There is math and science involved and spitting.  (if you want:)

 it's messy

 Three kinds of wine to make your own blend.
 Design a label.
 mix master Bill
 Drink it on our 30th If we are so blessed:)

 Bill and Melinda's
