The Kitchen Table

I took on the task of refinishing our kitchen table. Other than smelling up the house for 2 days it worked out pretty nice.

Lunch Time

Lori and I spent a little one on one time this afternoon sharing a great lunch at NOHO's cafe. Good stuff. After that we spent some more quality time waiting for our tire to get repaired at Les Schwab.

More Snow

Mother nature reared her ugly head again and dumped more snow on us.

Me Deadheading

Sitting in the back of a Suburban deadheading to Hermiston... A heck of a way to travel!

Rhododenron House

Sent a picture of this house a week ago and called it the Rebecca House... It is the Rhododendron House. Ooops. I washed the windows here today. 457 french panes inside and out... That's a lot of glass!

Day 365

Well, today is the 365th day of my mobile blog. It really doesn't seem like it has been a year since I first posted, but it has been. I have really had fun doing this thing and I think I will continue to keep doing it until I either run out of things to take a picture of or people stop looking at it.

Since its inception I have had over 7000 hits. I have posted over 500 pictures and I have really enjoyed the feedback.

So here goes... year two of my mobile blog. Hopefully this year I can be a bit more inventive and/or creative as to some of the shots I take. I am also looking forward to seeing how many people check it out for one more year.

I hope all of you have a great day!


Feeding Time

It must be time to eat.

The Light At The End Of The Tunnel

There truly is light at the end of the tunnel... I hope it's not another train.

A Crafty Thing To Do

Lori had Grayson and Rachel making crafts and hanging out... Fun! Good thing I was working otherwise I might have had to finger paint.

On The Road Again

Well, I am back on the road again... my couple of months in the yard has come to an end and I am rolling along the "high steel" once again.

I am in Hermiston today and decided to take a little run. The weather was beautiful and my energy level is good so why not run. I looked out my hotel window and picked my destination. It is the highest point in the flatlands of Hermiston.

Not overly impressive, but it was a destination none-the-less...

A Message Of Perseverance and Hope

For those of you who have read my blog for awhile you probably have noticed that I have some devotionals that I write on occasion. I wrote one this morning that I thought might inspire. It links to a slideshow of a young boy who is recovering from burns sustained from a house fire that claimed the life of his parents.

Just thought it might be of interest...

A Couple Of Guitar Solos...

Grayson will now perform a song...

And Nick will now perform a song...

We had a little fun this evening listening to the two boys practicing their guitar solo's... Not bad for a couple of newbies.

A Shot From Mt Tabor

Here is a picture from our snow day on Mt Tabor... I really liked the way the building turned out on this one.

Cute Picture

With my schedule the way it has been lately I have not been too available to take pictures and post them. I found this one on my computer this evening and thought it was cute. I bought some reading glasses this past summer and Grayson wanted to try them for himself...
