Day #065

After the beautiful start to the week (and to spring), I cannot wait for my garden to transform from this …

My back garden in winter

to this …

My back garden in summer

Did I already mention that I love spring?!?

Until next time …

Day #030

Sunrise in Oxfordshire, Jan 2013

Sunrise in Oxfordshire, Jan 2013

Apologies for the silence – I just spent a long weekend at my “country retreat” in Oxfordshire – it’s actually home to my dad and step/half-family, and I was visiting them before I fly out to America next week. I love to refer to it as my country retreat purely because after the bustle of the week here in Windsor (population 27,000) it’s nice to have a break and stay in the town of Faringdon (population 6,200) and the village of Clanfield (population 855)! Alas, there’s no internet connection … not necessarily a bad thing when you’re trying to escape!

Until next time …

Weekly Photo Challenge: Resolved

The Weekly Photo Challenge for this week is resolved.

Well, I have already posted my resolutions for 2013 here. But, since making those resolutions, I found myself thinking about other things I would like to accomplish this year. I found some great suggestions after doing some searches online, and compiled a list of the smaller and less significant “wishes” of things that I would like to do in 2013. I will post those at another time, but for now, I wish to elaborate just one.

In August 2010, I visited USA for the first time (I know right, how many more times am I going to say that?!), and that being my first visit, I of course had to go to New York City and get a picture in front of the Statue of Liberty, and to Washington DC and get a picture in front of the White House …

Well, I hate these pictures!! Not only do I look like a complete idiot, but I chose to stand in front of something that completely ruined the picture! So, when I next visit Chris (in 1 month!!), I am going to try my hardest to get new pictures in front of these monuments – ones that I can be proud of!

Until next time …
