Hey, Biddah, Biddah!

My husband is on the committee of the West Shore Autism Society and tonight is the benefit dinner and auction.

I'm donating framed 8 x 10's of these for auction. Wish us luck!

Update: The framed pair sold for $75, which I think is pretty cool,
since it didn't cost that much to print and frame them and... I've never sold anything before!!!
Yay! Someone paid money for my photos!

Washington D.C. - Part One

I recently spent a week in Washington D.C. training for my new job.
These are few of the photos I took during that week.
This church was across the street from one of the offices I trained at.

Fire and Snow

I'm so thankful that this snow is gone,
but Cardinal makes it look good, doesn't he?


Little Bird, Little Bird

I've been in Washington DC for the week and didn't bring my Michigan Bird Guide with me for reasons that should be obvious, but I'll be sure to check when I get home. : ) This was taken in Michigan in February 2010.


Dear, Winter

Dear, Winter.

You are beautiful, but I've had enough.
Thank you for your time.

Nerd Alert

My wonderful husband surprised me with a Birds of Michigan Field Guide and it is right up there with my iPod as one of my favorite gifts I was blessed with this Christmas. I am officially a total nerd.

I believe this is a Female House Finch. She is feeding at a feeder I fashioned from an old toy that just wouldn't stay together and I was tired of Bean using it as a weapon. So it now attracts Blue Jays and apparently House Finches to our back deck.

Is "finches" the correct plural form or is it just "finch". Ok. Enough nerdery for now.
