I had a longer post planned, but I can't remember most of it, and what I do remember sucked. So instead I thought I'd share some photos. I love my digital camera, and being able to download pics to my laptop, now all I need to do is figure out how to select the pics before downloading, so my camera doesn't download all of the pics on my camera everytime (I've got around 400 pics stored there).
The weekend before Christmas the area where my mom lives was hit by the snowstorm. A week later, this is a picture of her parking lot outside of her condo. There was only one clear spot in front of her building, where my brother's truck was parked, and one narrow lane with which to get in and out. And the snow wasn't the only hazard, the snow was melting a little each day, and freezing each night.
My brother and I took Miss Daisy, my mom's dog out for a good long walk, only to find out the park was closed. I took this picture driving to the park, not bad considering I took it through the front window. Nothing like not seeing where a road leads to make you curious. No?
This is the other reason, all of the melting snow was causing the rivers and creeks to flood their banks. This is easily four times as much water as usually flows through here.
This field is usually home to hay, not rice. Any deeper and you could probably jetski on it.
This is actually two fields, one of which usually houses a group of cows. There is no pond there, just creek.
Outside my mother's kitchen window was this little tree that looked like Charlie Brown's tree, so we decorated it for Christmas. It seemed appropriate.
I spent Christmas eve down on the Outer Banks with a friend and her family. New Year's Eve was not only the full moon and a blue moon, but also a blood moon (a lunar eclipse which makes the moon look red- which I didn't see), so we walked down to the beach to see the rising moon. This is the moon's light reflecting on the surface of the ocean.
I also got a shot of the moon, before my batteries died. The funky shape is me not holding still enough while the picture was being taken.
This last is for the ladies of the WriteMinded Readers Group, who all cheerfully admit to being addicted to books. The Waldenbooks at the mall is closing soon, and the romance section was 60% off. These are the books I bought Friday after work. Now to find a home for them all.
