Benches on Monday,

I’ve been collecting benches for about 10 years. And last week our temps were close to 70 degrees. A big difference from today’s weather (24 degrees)

Anyway, on my walks last week I found a few new benches on the. Erie Canal, in my Village . And yesterday I went back to the conservatory

I just got such an urge to smell a few flowers😊, every one here has the spring itch.

But it will b at least 2 more months b4 we see flowers outside.

Have a wonderful Monday

hipsta week…1

I think im on a roll now.. everything is in order, and im all up to date, so my first full week of doing a 365 in hipsta, was great. each friday  it’s a new challenge. this week was shadows. and it worked out great, as we had sunshine almost everyday. the challenge starts every friday evening. 40491379313_811ff96347_o

Happy Window Wednesday

It was so nice today I walked the Erie Canal in my village. 5 miles , summer must b on the way 😉 I took a lot of photos on my little walk. This building was a mechanics shop , I guess it’s closed up now . As u can see we had a very sunny day . Still had to wear a winter jacket , old man winter is still blowing his wind this way . No complaints !!! We had SUNSHINE:)

Happy Bench Monday

Omg trying to prepare for every day of 365 is still is bit of work for me 🙂 how ever… I am always prepared for my Bench day

Beach living… these people who live along the Great Lakes must have the thickest blood around , people are already pulling out their deck furniture and temps are 10 to 15 degrees below the norm. We have had plenty of sun but the temps remain in the 30’s.

Too cold for me to be sitting in the sand.. how ’bout you :)?! Happy Bench Monday

Hipsta …

So I’ve started my journey of 365, a bit late, but, better late than not at all…

I think what I’ll do is post once a week, everything I’ve done for 7 daysStill playing with settings nothing too fancy

About last nite……

We had a worm moon. I was lucky enough to get a glimpse

b4 the clouds moved in. This is off of my kitchen. , and yep, my 2 Nd day of hipsta.

Using salvador84 and shilshole+ pop rox.

B4 I dressed it up:) , I like both of them.


I have a thing for benches , I’ve been collecting them oh at least for 10 years . This past Sunday we went and sat by the River , to windy to actually sit on the bench but we enjoyed seeing the gulls .

And the tiny sail boats , I’ve never had the desire to b on the water when it’s still winter , up north 🙂 but I’ll watch ;)!

Well .. it’s St.Paddys weekend

I’m not much of a drinker since I’ve gotten older , it’s just to hard to feel better 🙂 ! I did go and have a beer or 2 with Hubby though

And this is an awesome(lov’n cup) place on a campus of a college, had a beer

Something to munch on and moved along

Closer t home

Always good t see theses folks at Triphammer. A small brewery in my town. they have great popcorn to go with their weekly mixes of brews:)

I’m not much of a beer drinker, even though I love a good German beer. Any way …

Happy St. Paddy’s Day to Ya’ll
