We saw the deer in the back yard right after we got home yesterday.

      Morning Bob! My friend’s tv show last night took place in Arizona and I was thinking about you in your warm region. (: We have ll this snow and it’s going to be 40F today!
      It was so cool to get home, unpack our bags and look up to see the deer right out back. (:

    For decades I have been convinced that we would have a much more peaceful world with more women in positions of power – political and otherwise.

    Now for a not so new thought – GREAT PICTURES as usual, Melissa!!!!!

  5. Your photography is magnificent, Melissa. What camera are you using?
    I’m so glad I have you set up in my subscription list in my newly applied google reader. Now I won’t miss seeing your blog.

      Oh thank you so much.

      I have a Cannon Rebel EOS.

      You know I’ve been following your blog (non-RSS feed of course) for a bit. I think of your laundry tips quite often. Today I was a bit resentful though….aActually sorting the clothes added an extra two loads.

  6. Mom!

    I love reading your friends posts almost as much as seeing your magnificent pictures. Glad you are safe and sound and can’t wait to hear the disposal story.!

      Thanks Mom, they’re cards aren’t they? (:

      Jason saved the day by staying late and guiding a new install of the disposal and Randy had the same fridge that just pooped out and he fixed that..dust-related! (go figure) xo
