Changes are a-comin’.

Wow! It really has been awhile, hasn’t it? Our Dear Author (DA) has graduated from graduate school (last December actually… in 2015). Now she’s trying to get some experience in the library field so that she can get hired by someone! That’s the fortune of being plastic… no need to work!

Also, DA is moving! We shall try to take and post pictures of our new place once things get settled. So we haven’t been able to travel as much as we once did, and hopefully, things will pick up once again after everything has calmed down some. DA is trying to get involved with the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), which could mean more activities for us to stowaway to! Stay tuned!

We had a brief snowstorm a few days ago, and pictures were taken!


Maybe as the winter continues, there will be more snowfall and more opportunities for play!

We shall try to update things as they happen. Hopefully, the absences won’t be quite as long…

We thank you for your patience.

Winter Wonderland

Looking back on the previous post, I posted about the sprinkling of snow we received a few weeks ago.

Well, it’s a bit different now:


To be honest, we don’t know how long it will last, so we decided to take the opportunity for some fun!



Snow angels!



Considering our previous climate, and the fact we’re unaffected by the weather, traipsing about in just short sleeves and impractical shoes may seem a bit absurd to some, but it was great fun!



We even went to the VA to tromp around a bit.


It can be a sticky though, but not enough for snowballs, alas…

We also hope everyone has a happy and safe Thanksgiving as well!


We have to remember that we have indeed moved from a semi-tropical climate to a more moderate one. 

And that sometimes involves snow.

Earlier this month, the temperature did take enough of a dip that there were a few flurries of snow. None of it stuck to the ground, mind you. but it was still an impressive site!


A few flakes on the railing.

You can almost see the patterns in the snowflakes if you look close enough.


One even landed on Jasper’s foot.

Sadly, due to the limitations of the camera, some of the shots weren’t as clear as others.


No, I did not want to focus on the ground underneath the railing…

But, we were able to get a few decent ones, here and there.






Maybe once December rolls around, we can have more snow shots. And there are plans for ‘Thankgivingakkuh’, so stay tuned!
