The shovel

This is my driveway I have been shoveling this week. I put a picture of my shovel. Here is the conversation I had with Emily:

Me: “It took me 6 Hours to shovel the Driveway which is .10 mile.”
Emily: “You need a better shovel.”
Me: “Here is a picture of my shovel.”
Emily: “You mean you really DO need a better shovel!”
I need a new shovel

48/365: Color without Color

[singlepic id=121 w= h= float=none]

We have a lot of snow for Tennessee. I am enjoying taking pictures of it while it lasts. It is fun that the theme this week is tones because it is one of my favorite subjects anyway. It is giving more impetus to my daily shots.

46/365: First Snow: Before Dawn

Uploading these now, a week later, I had no idea the snow that was in store. I thought this was a lot! The color of this is exactly as it was this early morning. It is often very very blue. The sun rises over the mountains to the right out of the picture, hence the pink reflection on the shed.

44/365: Red Flag

Many people fly the flag of Tennessee together with the Stars and Stripes here. The flag against the weather is a meaningful statement to me.

20/365: Happy Anniversary!!

Our dear dear friends gave us these beautiful jars of vegetables from their garden, each with a beautifully tied Bow, for our Anniversary Present.
It deserved a photo.
The hassock is waiting to be resurrected it is quite old. It is an object of memory. The hassock and the canned goods on the hearth together all represent family

It subsequently was fog and rain all day.

The mountains really are this color sometimes. When we first moved to Tennessee I used to call it the impossible colors.

7/365: Incoming Snowstorm

It never ceases to amaze me how you can see the weather change over the distant mountains. The sun was shining so brightly in one part of the sky, but there was a snowstorm in the distance.

The twelfth day of the twelfth month of 2012 and my birth date

Life dormant within this tree against the early morning sky. I had a cup of coffee and looked at the day. Misty early morning Although we are overwhelmed with projects, we had time to put up a few lights. Joy to the world. Morning was working on grading in my library. I love my library its so snuggly. And full of books, paints, sketch materials, odds and ends, items. A reflection of the inside of my brain. I was so happy to finish making my new sketch journal today and I will be able to take it to New England. At around three, I went for a walk with Elbow. The sun is just setting behind my house. The second tree in from the left is the tree in the first picture. There is a duck swimming in this pond if you can see it. We walk up the left side of the pond and then up on top of the hill. I love the very top. We can see for miles. Elbow loves to run down the hill. Every tiny thing has such beauty in the world. Even though its into December, this verdant new growth is sprouting out of the hay bales. The evening light on top of the hill is amazing.

Birthday Twelve of Twelve December 12

I began my December Twelve Birthday in front of the fireplace, painting the wood pile I can see a snow storm is brewing looking out the front door. We are hunkered down. Just a little melted snow from the last storm in the side yard. The rain came first you can see the clouds behind our new house we will be renting We went up to check the water pipes and this is how it looks from up there I like the yard of the new house and feeling close to the storm clouds. We went to the wood pile at the shop and loaded up the truck. Plenty of wood to keep warm! this is what I was drawing. Snow began around midday. This is the back yard from the back porch.10.jpgEarly evening but it is dark with the beginning powdering of snow. Dan cooked us Steaks for my birthday dinner in front of the fireplace on the little grill.

106 on the hill

This is the house across the street. We are moving here and I hope to turn the other one into a studio. The landlord really wanted us to move into this one because he wanted someone who would take care of it.

12 of 12: A breathless morning in August

Twelve of Twelve. A breathless morning in August for August twelfth. Work to be done, work in progress, the work of living, things growing, close to the earth

This mushroom is six inches across Wood waits to be cut and split Stacked and drying, ready to go into the cellar The lush growth down in the holler. Things grow when you turn around Black walnut dye has fermented for two years A writing spider built a web on the clothesline Tomatoes ripening Zucchini tiny and growing Laundry waiting to be hung The corn is taller than Nora's head crabapple graft is ripe for apple jelly The Panzer and the lawn tractor waiting to do their jobs
