facing the giants

Encouragement, inspiration and a few goose-bumps to accompany; this is worth it. (more…)

I want him

Wednesday, March 30th, 2011

So, yes, it must be video week and this one is an oldie but goodie. My brother has kept me plugged into YouTube with his hilarious finds and when I was browsing this evening I came across this most beloved friend:

“He has ate as much as 5 cheeseburgers but…yeah…he don’t care much for Coke… He likes westerns… now, go get me a beer, Patches.”

I want him.

Without further ado:

slightly more sophisticated

I happened upon this yesterday while checking out Horseman’s Yankee Pedlar. A video of this awesomeness really needs no words to pre-empt it:

the thanks I get for recycling

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011

So, this morning Brandon loaded up the back of my car with the glass to take to recycle. I forgot this. Living on a hill often causes things to TIP when in the back of my car. Sudden and unexpected accelerations while ON that hill also tend to add to the likelihood that something will probably fall over in my vehicle.

This was the case. And for whatever reason was insanely hysterical to me this morning as I heard the crash in the back of my car. Thankful for the unexpected giggle (seriously… who laughs at that?), I had no clue what was in store for my humil (more…)

the week of stink

Friday, March 18th, 2011

Am I the only one who thinks these trees STINK?! (literally!!) They are my most favorite trees…so beautiful to look at but boy, it smells like we live next to a cow farm when the wind blows the right way. These trees bloom for about a week to a week and a half before their blooms fall and the leaves come through. If I could (I’d have to plug my nose (more…)

image storage

Thursday, March 17th, 2011

where do you store all of the personal images you’re capturing? On your camera? or maybe you’ve managed to download them to the computer? Either way– are they protected? (psst–the answer is no).

As I go through and cull images from last year to put onto disc and archive from my personal image folders, I’m revisiting moments of history in our family: First steps, wild hair-dos, potty-training, videos of the girls dancing and captured pitter patters of tiny feet. What would happen if I LOST all of these? (Oh, y’all do NOT want to know the answer to that…trust me.)

In this digital age, there is no guarantee that my personal shots will be printed on actual paper to archive in a scrapbook (I have intentions…) so the only real tangible evidence from these “historical” moments in our home reside in copies on my hard drives!!! And this is really just not safe. Caught up in the ever-present obstacle of the day (name it– it happens around here), I neglect to do what is most important in preserving memories of our lives as we go along…memories I want to keep so that our story can be told years, even centuries down the line. The unfortunate nature of keeping it all digital is that computers crash, hard drives crash and memory discs fail! Heck, I’m not even (more…)
