Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, totally worn out and screaming,
"WOO HOO, what a ride!"

Saturday Snapshot

 Saturday Snapshot is hosted by At Home with Books. To participate in this meme post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don't post random photos that you find online.
 It's still cold here and we still have snow on the ground. Ugh. I hate to be a whiner, and the weather here can change in a heartbeat, but last year was a remarkably mild March and it spoiled me. We had a record high temp of 75 degrees on 3/18/12! I know spring will be here soon so in the meantime I'll post some of my photos from last year. These are the things that bring me so much happiness and I'm anxiously awaiting their arrival!
Finding the first flowers of spring
Putting up the humming bird feeder
Moonlit nights at the lake for our annual family vacation
Watching our flag blow in the breeze
Walking our dogs
Playing in the yard with Princess and Monkey Boy
And of course - reading (& napping) in my hammock!


  1. Lovely photos! I'm longing for spring too.

  2. Those are lovely! We've got a nice day today but we're bracing for record snowfall tomorrow.

  3. Very nice shots. I especially like the moonlit nights -

    Hope u are having a good weekend.

  4. There's a few of you pining for spring this week! You have much to look forward to with spring though, and many pleasant memories. I hope spring arrives soon for you.

  5. Nice to anticipate, I think. It's been surprisingly cool here, too.

  6. We have had snow again as well, and no self-respecting ladybird would dare venture out... that is a great picture - really cheered me up. No Snapshot from me this week, because I only got back from Mum's yesterday, but I like to see what everyone is doing!

  7. Ah, memories of warm days. Nice to see flowers and greenery. Same weather problem here in Chicago ... spring has gone missing! We had 80 degree temps last March and this year it's still snowing.

  8. Those photos are amazing. I especially love that first one.
    We're still dealing with snow here too :(

  9. Moonlight on the lake! Oh man . . . I'm so ready for summer nights.

  10. Take heart, spring will be in your neck of the woods soon! You'll be back in your hammock in no time. :-)
