Spring is here

On the way home in downtown Middleton I found some
very yellow and orange tulips that radiated with the
white background. It was 86 degrees this afternoon.


Dean saw a heron at the marsh in Middleton today while
we were biking.
Luckily I had brought my Canon and was able to wade
into the marsh to capture the bird digitally.
He then photographed me emerging from the expedition.
Jasmine enjoyed her bike outing from the comfort of her
padded basket and looks forward to many more adventures.

Busy Week

I made a multi~strand bracelet for my girlfriend
Linda's birthday that was on Monday.
I made another bracelet this week.
I fixed my girlfriend Georgia's beaded purse. A few
of the beads came off and threads were frayed.
Dean's birthday was on Wednesday. Jenni and Bill
brought pizza and cheese bread.
Shawn came home from Milwaukee for supper on
Friday and we all went for a neighborhood bike ride.

Sunday with Shawn

Our son Shawn came for a home cooked breakfast of
sausage and fried potatoes. Then we went for a five
and a half mile ride to the Old Missouri tavern.
Dean was the official trip photographer and chase crew.
Shawn was skeptical of track bikes but now is a devotee
after the ride and said he would like one for himself.

Pussy Willows

Last weekend we had rainy weather. I rode my bike to
church. When I got home I was soaked. Now it is getting
cold ! I finished my business taxes this week. We did not
ride but for Monday as this is not good biking weather.
The Pussy Willows are in blossom. I took pictures last week.
I thought it was a nice shot with the white picket fence !

City Geese

I photographed for over a half hour to get the best

Two Geese

I have been pretty busy. I haven't had time to make
jewelry. I have been in training for over a month and
am starting to work next week for a part-time job. I
am Synergie Technician. It is vaccum massage
technology. It is an easy and effective non-surgical
alternative for body sculping and effective in reducing
the appearance of cellulite.
Yesterday afternoon for one hour I was in training.
Dean bought a new bike like mine. I think it is cool to
match our bikes when we go biking together.
I took alot of pictures of two geese at Stricker Pond
when I was biking.
