winter light





i'm happy to say i've been snowshoeing a lot lately including both days this weekend.

first with jason:


then with lisa:


and these monster mutant icicles below did end up taking down the cable line and defunct telephone land line at my house this weekend.  the wires landed in a snowbank and are draped low across the road.  despite phone calls no one's come to fix them.  am i gonna have to get all freaky-deaky in order to get some one over here to put it right??  i practically had a conniption  when i called to let the cable company know the deal because it took 1/2 an hour and push this button for this and select that number for that until i got a live person on the phone.

what's this world coming to and young people these days...


oh and i had to walk to school 10 miles barefoot when i was a kid.

Isn't that water color on the wall a tattoo on someones shoulder? I seem to recall falling in love with that tattoo a while ago... and telling my husband he should get something similar.
