About Me

Recent retiree--35 year's experience teaching reading, English, adult basic education and volunteer leadership skills. Started this blog to exchange ideas and commentary with friends and others having an interest in joining the discussions. Greatest life accomplishments include: 1.organized my 3rd grade class to check out library books for me to get around librarian's weekly limit--Amazon.com, the Mullins Elementary 3rd Grade Class of 1956 is still waiting for "thank you" notes; 2. volunteered in the Peace Corps, island of St. Kitts, West Indies; 3.taught adults to read, earn their GEDs., and speak English as a second language; 4. bought a border collie puppy for $6, got evicted rather than give him up, and began a life-long love affair with all things "Dog"; 5. joined a physical fitness boot camp in my mid-50s--don't mess with someone who's been doing regulation pushups in wet grass at 5:30 a.m.; 6. walked across Northern England with best friend Sally--over 80 miles from the Irish to North Seas; and 7. travelled to many foreign countries for pleasure and work.

Macro Monday - First Snow

Just after Christmas we got our first significant snowfall of the winter.  How significant you can tell from how much is on the fence and viburnum branches.

And here's a longer view of the backyard.  This was Chet's first snow.  Later this week I'll share some photos of him enjoying this novel stuff.

For more closeups from all over, or to enter your own macros, be sure to check out Lisa's Chaos here every Monday.

Snow has always been alien to me, much as i don't want to live with it, i love seeing beautiful shots around the blog world. I posted some warm colors to assuage some of their greyness and cold!

I'm feeling left out. No snow here. Rained today --
Sky was clear last week, and everything froze.

There is a white covering on the Blue Mountains though. I can be happy with that.

You had a very beautiful snowfall. We're still waiting for our first snow of the year.
