Beautiful Frigid...

Image
In the thick of the woods, you find reminders of love carved into the bark of a sycamore tree...


Snow blanketing the shores of a babbling stream...

Clumps of white adorning branches that would go unseen amongst numerous limbs above your head...

Slushy ice clinging to the frozen wet ground and exposed tree roots...

A grumbling dog tugging snowballs from between her toes...

Once reflective pools of water, now frozen landscapes of cold...

Still green moss and lichen touched by Jack Frost's finger...

The delicate trill and songs of birds in the branches nearby...

The artwork within twsited vines and brambles....

A secret pond frozen still...

Frosty branches against a warming blue sky...

Powdery white flakes clinging to even the smallest of hairs...



The postcard perfect natural scene surrounding you like a living greeting card...



The crossing over back into the real world after you've been given such chilly delights on your walk...

Random Internet Funnies...

So theses are from my massive collection of funny shit I have found on Facebook via Nocturnal Medics & The Most Intersting Ambulance Crew in the World. Plus friends of mine that post great stuff. And it is high time I share the funny stuff with all of you- they make great laptop wallpapers :) And provide a giggle on days that seem to be smile and giggle free.







































This last one- the saying was found on Facebook, the image is a composite done from a shoot on Sunday with Carol Linnee... She did actually have her face painted, by yours truly :)

In the News... (Rant Machine Just Fired Up, Folks)

On the national news tonight, there was a feature story or two that really got me all hot under the collar, pissed off, and left me standing in the kitchen in my yoga pants yelling at the television while my hubby cooked us sloppy joes and sweet potato fries.

The story the irked me the most was a short one compared to all the others. The number of suicides amongst members of the military has surpassed the number of troops killed in battle overseas. This pissed me off. This filled me with the emotions of anger, disgust, and oddly enough- nostalgia. Now, not too often to I come to stand by the man I affectionately call "stupid ex"; "asshole who cheated on me"... blah blah blah... here in my little blog.

(Climbs up atop a soapbox, fireworks announcing my arrival to my forgotten post, glitter dancing through the air and flags with the word BITCH snapping in the wind)

My ex husband served his country in the Marine Corps. He went into boot camp a month after we started da…

Yoga Mat Equals Frienemie!

Brother Keith during the Christmas Invasion- "Now that you own and wear yoga pants, you'll have to follow through, you know that right?"



I have been doing yoga once a day (mostly), twice on some days since December 29th. I like it. At first, not so much- it was kinda of a kick in the teeth to watch flexy bendy yoga dude on the DVD do something I was sure I could do. Then I tried to do it. Then I sat and pouted while waiting for ibuprofen to kick in... I am better now. Like, I realized last night I can itch the middle of my back by myself and not go running to the nearest door frame or my Hubby to do it for me!! That's really impressive to me! I can sit in the lotus pose, without using my hands to place my feet and legs. I can do the forward bend with my feet flat on the floor and my face resting on my kneecaps!!! I know, I am being all yoga braggy, but seriously- this improvement on my flexibility has me seriously happy.

I am losing weight because of it to. And hour…
