Last Night's Splurge - Bacon Cheeseburger

So I'm not supposed to have cheese. Or greasy meat. Or bacon. But dang this was good!

More Random Pics

Sometimes the puppies actually just sleep - at the same time :)

Odds and Ends Photos

The two little puppies are keeping me quite busy. Most photos have been of them but I occasionally stray to the rest of the yard and wander around trying to get photos of things before they destroy them . . . :( Ahh, the joy of puppies. Someday I will miss it.

I Did It - And I Didn't Even Know It!

Imagine my shock and surprise when, after months of daily checking and then finally giving up and not checking for the past 3 months, I checked stockexpert and found that

Hello and Welcome!

Today is another one of my photos on 365 Portal Prompts :)

Welcome to all who drop by from there!

Today's photo is one of my wedding dress out in the snow. There are a couple previous posts about this (one being on this site http://photodaisy.blogspot.com/2009/01/snowy-wedding-dress.html and the other being on my "Everything Daisy" site http://everythingdaisy.blogspot.com/2009_01_01_archive.html#7144605690712051769

if you would care to read about how the photo came to be.

I have more ideas for the dress but just haven't tackled them yet, mostly due to weather :) lol

When we got married, I decided to make my own wedding dress, so consequently the dress only ended up costing $32 in materials and 1 1/2 years of my time.

If you are looking for more wedding dress photos, feel free to visit http://www.morguefile.com/ and look up jdurham - all my pictures are there :)

Everything isn't always perfect

There is beauty in imperfection.
Feel free to make your own captions for these :)

Great Pics but Morguefile has too many

A garden is so much fun to photograph. My new "to do" thing is going out and peeking in all the flowers to see who and what I might find! Treasures!!!

A Sixth Tag

I was tagged by a fellow blogger - http://howtoachievehappiness.blogspot.com/

sixth folder, sixth photo, post it, tell the story behind it, then send the tag to six people

So tag, I'm it :)
There's the photo. Not one I love but I don't hate it either. This was taken on a field trip to Faust Park where my students become "pioneers." They carry firewood, water, cut/chop up their own veggies for stew/soup, churn their own butter, split logs, and learn about life back in the early 1800's in Missouri.
The farm we visit was owned by the first governor of Missouri. This actual building was occupied by a family who lived with the governor and it was believed to be the first home while the family waited for their big house to be built. But who knows??
The cabin is tiny and very old - an original building.
The day we went was a lovely day - not too hot, not rainy, etc. I love taking the kids there every year because they always feel so empowered and realize that they CAN do things - so many of them have never even tried because everything is always done for them! I like it because all I do is supervise while they do all the work :)
So there it is - my sixth folder, sixth photo pic and story. Now I have to see who I will tag . . . :)
