Springing into springummer with a wide-angle view of life…

We must be in a time warp as it feels like early May here! Today it was 67 degrees in Juniper Canyon…my trees have budded out and our grass is green!

Crazy weather has changed so much from when I was growing up here.

I’m not complaining as I like the warmer days with my new WIDE angle perception and view of life…hmmmm?

WB wanted me to have a wider perception on life so he bought a new lens for my camera!!! I am so excited to go out and play with it! It will be perfect for landscapes…the skies are clearing, green grass is a growing like crazy each weird warm day…stay tuned!

    What size lens is it? I love the 5th picture of the sky. That looks like it should be the cover of a children’s picture book. 🙂

      Thank you! It is a Sony wide angle 4.5-5.6/11-18…I love it! I love my Sony a77 camera too. It is good to see you, somehow I have not seen your page for a while even though I subscribe…I may be looking at the reader at the wrong time but I wonder sometimes if WP does not get all the subscribers that you subscribe to in the reader…now I will have to hop over to your blog and see what you have been up to:)

        It does a great job. I haven’t been posting as much. I’ve been trying my hand at a novel, the one I finished last year turns out not to be finished, and lacking a lot, so I’ve cut back blogging. I get to it once a week or so, but it gets lost in the reader. 🙂 Thanks for asking.

        Thank you, I am happy with it…just bought it a few weeks ago so I am yet playing with it:) I love to blog but I have cut back some…partly after loosing my kitty Minnie as it was hard and my emotions and feelings made sort of a writers block…and I do run our business office and through the month I have lots of paper work to do etc. The last week of the month I am usually free to goof a bit:) How exciting to be writing a novel:) I keep saying one of these days I am going to write a book! One of these days….what is your novel about?

        It’s a story about three older women looking for romance. Writing a novel is much more complicated and difficult than I realized. I have so much to learn. 🙂

      I do know what you mean….in Wyoming the landscape was not green until towards the end of June….and I was snowed on the end of July, was in a blizzard if you can imagine…my Mom was back here telling me that they were up to 110 degrees and the same day I was in a blizzard and thunder storm at the same time! Elle is truly a character…she has the same human heart that Minnie did…very personable and knows when something is off or wrong and she tries to entertain you with playing tug of war or she wil grab one of her toys growing in a playful way at you while wiggling her fanny so fast that it is a blur! She always makes us laugh and feel good:) Huggssss and sweet kitty loves for the Purrrrince….love you both:)

        The weather is wacky! Some places are nice & warm & we are colder than Alaska!!!
        Oh well it is what it is…..
        I am so glad Ellie is there for you. She is such a sweet girl…..truly…I know she knows she is the one left & that is why she tries to make you laugh & keep you occupied.
        Siddhartha Henry does similar things; making me laugh & getting me to [lay ‘Fetch’ with him. He is a ‘clown in fur’; my ‘clown in fur’….I am blessed…he has pulled me thru a very dark time!

        We both have been blessed during a horribly tough time…I like the “clown in fur” as it is so true with both Ellie and Siddhartha….I love Ellie’s antics and her silly games…and she snuggles pretty good:) I am so thankful that you have that little ball of fur as he blessed you with new life and lots of laughter:)

      Thank you:) Ellie Belle is so human and I love her sense of fun, with lots of doggie love and her perceptiveness she seems to understand things very well…she has lots of toys of course and she loves her Zebra today…I will tell her to go get her Zebra and she trots off coming right back with the Zebra out of about 25 toys…the weather is weird all over I think…so odd here right now…hard to believe! Hope you have a wonderful Sunday and that you had a Happy Valentines Day!

    And we are in the middle of another blizzard, with below zero temps predicted following the storm. Yet … spring is right around the corner. Which corner? Where is it hiding? Ah … YOU have it!

      Ewwww on the blizzard and cold parts…we usually do not warm up like this until early May maybe….today we have another sunny blue ski day and it is to reach 60 degrees today….not as warm as the other day but I will take it as standing in the sun feels so good. I’ll try to send some sunny days to you with cozy warm temps!
