About Me

My photo
This is me. Not much to say. I think there is nothing better in the world than having a good friend that you can have an entire conversation with and never say a word. I love to read. Nicholas Sparks and James Patterson are two of my favorite authors. I am not afraid to choose a book by an unknown author if the title catches my eye. If my kitchen was not so small I would have people over all the time and cook for them. I love to try new meals and make new things. Life without a pet is not a full life in my opinion. I have one dog – Sasha. Could not imagine not having her there every day to shed all over my house and get in my way and be totally excited when I got home from work. She knows when to jump on my lap and just be there when I have a bad day. People need to give animals more credit and everyone should own one.

Garden - 2011

Here is the start to the 2011 Garden. I tried to start everything that I could from seed this year again. Not everything turned out but I did have more success then last year and learned a lot for next year.

Peppers - In the end the peppers did not turn out

Walking the kids to school...

The new office in Iowa is across the screen from a community college. Behind the building that is next to ours is a pond where quite a few geese live. Twice last week I look up from my desk and see the geese have traveled from their pond, along side our building and are crossing the street to the parking lot of the community college. On day 2 I was quick enough with a camera to get a few shots.

Looks like they are walking the kids to school!
