Home Sweet Home

I made it home from Iowa City, and I have lots to tell you about what’s been going on while I was gone and since I’ve returned.


It’s taking me a bit to get caught up, but hopefully, I can do a real post tomorrow.

Golden Sunset

After the storms passed through on Monday, we were left with a beautiful golden sunset.

This is truly my favorite time of day to shoot photos.

Sharing with Jenny Matlock‘s Alphabe-Thursday.  We’re up to the letter g.  G is for golden and grasshoppers.

The Darkest Days

We’ve reached the darkest days of the year.

The winter solstice is on December 21st, and then the sun begins its journey back to the northern hemisphere.  I am anxiously looking forward to those longer days.



Right now I feel like the cats.  I’m ready to hunker down and nap about twenty hours each day, but I don’t even have a rainbow pillow to sleep on.

It’s hard to get chores done outside.  Really, by the time I get home from work and make sure everyone is fed and watered, it’s dark.  I just want to curl up on the couch and do nothing.



I haven’t even hardly had the energy to set up photo shoots or bake.

We won’t discuss the lack of house cleaning.  Hopefully, my winter break will give me renewed energy and time to play with photography and make more soaps.

Yep, sales have been good, and I’ll be making more soap over break.  Maybe that will get my energy jump-started for the new year.

Sharing with Monday Mellow Yellows, Blue Monday, Inspire Me Monday, and Ruby Tuesday Too.
