Published on Tuesday, March 31, 2015 by Katherine
I loved this month's photo challenge theme "Two." It is like a photographer's choice with a challenge. I could do this all day long!
1. During the winter I kept hearing that the Corolla shipwreck off of Albacore Street had been uncovered a bit more by the winds. I made sure to v...

The beach is a magical place, surprising you with something different at every turn. We have had our family home in Corolla for about 35 years, yet I still see new things each year.
After several 70 degree days, the temperatures dropped… leaving us with one of the coldest weekends we ...

My daughter’s friend lives next door to the Pirate House. Sunday I was dropping her off and had to stop the car, put it in reverse and...

I have always wanted to help people. But you know how it goes. Kids. Work. Life. I assumed the time would come when all the children are out of the house.
As you know, I have begun fostering dogs for an amazing local rescue. I could write a post on its own about dog fostering and just...

Curly haired girls stop other curly haired girls on the street and ask, “What do you use in your hair?” It’s just what we do. All of us have at least $200 worth of hair products shoved under the sink, containing most of their original contents.
Hair stylists aren’t trained to cut ...

Every once in a while I like to share random pictures I have stored on my iPhone. Nothing can reveal one’s true day to day activities like the pictures on a cell phone.
1. Long story. There has always been a competition in our family to purchase my mother the most unique aka UGLY fr...

As many of you know, I have been fighting a sinus, ear and chest infection. That is why I didn't make my post last night. I just don't feel well.
Today I finished my antibiotic and I am still feeling horrible. I thought I might be put on another antibiotic. Instead…. Dun Dun Dunnnnnnn...

My children have the chance to build a snowman about once every two years. And on the rare occasion we get several inches, all of the guys go out to build a giant snowman.
This year with a sinus, ear and chest infection, I stumbled outside to take pictures of the "Building of the Gian...
Which Would You Choose?

On the way home from a family event this weekend, my middle son challenged us with a thoughtful question. “If you could have the traits of any animal in the world, what animal would it be and why? You would still be you but you could do things the animal does.”
I responded, “I...

I missed my Thursday post because I am sick, sick sick. Sinus, ear and lung infection. I figured everyone would understand. I'm in bed trying to stay awake to make this post, surrounded by warm puppies. Puppies make everything better.
When I saw that the February photo challenge...
Fog Over The Snow
Published on Sunday, February 22, 2015 by Katherine
Snow. An unusual occurrence in this area, to say the least. But snow we had. Enough that schools were closed the entire week! Our temperatures dropped to 7 degrees, which was a record once you added the wind chill.
I have never been in weather that cold and was actually a little bit exc...

My friend Joan recently had her fireplace cleaned and inspected. You know what that means, right? Free warm fire just down the street!
I took advantage of the warmth on our recent snow and ice day, dragging my camera along. After taking several pictures of the flames I began to notice fig...
