Hee! My "First Snow" sunrise picture made it to the Pioneer Woman's finals in her sunrise/sunset photo contest! I swear, she is my new hero--I've been cooking her recipes, reading all of her photography and Photoshop tutorials, and admiring her AMAZING horse/ranch photos for a few weeks now, and just on a whim the other day, thought I'd enter her "contest." I don't think it's so much a contest, as a "share-your-best-photo" thing, but I'm honored that she chose my photo from the dizzying array she had to choose from! (At last count, I think there were about 2,000 entries!) You can go look at the group HERE. And you can see my awesome photo (for the second time...lol) at The Pioneer Woman's blog HERE. (Mine's at the bottom--she calls it "magical"! I can't tell you how excited I am to have been included! Yay, me!

How indulgent is it that all I do is post pictures and videos of my kid? Oh well. Some day I'll get a life. Like maybe when she moves out. Heh. Maybe.

Then some stuff might actually get done around here!
so they'd look purty! Of course, BF and Kathleen are already sitting on it,
wrinkling it, and otherwise LIVING on the couch. The nerve.
It WAS pretty funny when I made them get up so I could fluff and puff for photos.
I got some "looks" if you know what I mean.
Some people just don't understand blogging. :)
My goal for today is to shower (!) and make a cranberry upside down cake for dinner at BF's mother's house. It's Christmas there today.

Not only is it from Pete Seger, but the Bible too! What do you know? ;)
3:1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
3:2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
3:3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
3:4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
3:5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
3:6 A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
3:7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
3:8 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
My 2009 was filled with all of the above (except maybe the "hate" part--I've never been good at hate) and I'm betting that 2010 will be filled with more of the same. The world keeps spinning, and I keep spinning with it! Funny how that works.
Above is my year in pictures, with much artistic liberty taken with Photoshop. :) I wish you all a very Happy New Year, and as Oprah said: "Cheers to a new year, and another chance for us to get it right."
