12 miles from home

Ohiophotogrl and I went on a little excursion this morning. We went to a little town close to our home called Yellow Springs. The have a field of sunflowers every year about this time. They are beautiful. We forgot to take a photo of us but here are a few from the field…

There were lots of bees which was great to see

There were even a few that haven’t bloomed yet.

The morning was a perfect time to go! Hope you all have a great rest of the week!

Where Have I Been

Sorry for disappearing on you. Ohiophotogrl and I have had some crazy times. So much so that I’ve been taking the photos and not being in them. I told her it was crazy but she insisted that I do a blog post about her crazy few weeks. First off we went to the Cincinnati Scotty Friends Convention. She dressed for every event….

She made everyone laugh and have a good time! We spent a week with some good friends! Then we got home and cleaned out the garage! We can fit a car in there now.

Then as we were cleaning the garage we heard a very loud crashing sound from the back yard

Huge tree limb fell! Crazy….Ohiophotogrl was just on her way outback when it happened. Thank God everyone was ok because we had to call someone to come get it out of the yard it was so big.

But now we are back to getting some routine in our lives. Let’s hope that happens soon! Take care and I’ll be back soon!

Wonder what we’re gonna do next?

May The Fourth Be With You

I like most Star Wars fans are celebrating May Fourth. Why your asking yourself? Because we can. How cool is it to say May the Fourth Be With You!

I met up with my friends R2D2, C3PO and Yoda for a photo! We had a great time catching up before they had to head back and help save the galaxy far far away!

Have a great day!

I’m ready are you

Here in the 937 we got hit with a few inches of snow last night

It was really bad this morning, but as you can see the roads are now clear. That little spot by my nose…..it’s a resident squirrel. He came down from his nest to get the corn I left him :0)

I am so ready for spring! I ordered some seeds for the garden and they came in the mail yesterday!

This isn’t everything I’m gonna plant but a variety of the things I want to grow. Do you have a Garden? What do you like to plant in your garden? Stay tuned as it gets closer to spring, we will be getting the garden ready and even planting some starters ahead of time! I love to garden! This year we ordered heirloom seeds from http://www.rareseeds.com no gmos. We will be sharing more about this as time goes on!

Can bubbles freeze

Ohiophotogrl and I have been watching people blow bubbles when it’s really cold out side. Some of the photos are really neat! We thought we would give it a try.

First we mixed our solution.

We used:

1 cup of water

1/4 Cup Of Dawn dish soap

1/8 cup of Karo corn syrup (the clear kind)

Mixed it all up and then let it set on the counter for half an hour. We wanted it wall to be at the same temperature.

Then it was time to test our bubbles. There was very little wind. This is very important to know. Wind will burst our bubbles. It also has to be below 15 degrees. We waited till it was 12 degrees outside. We went on the back porch and turned on our porch light. There is a trash can by the back door so that’s where we aimed the bubbles.

Several bubbles landed and after 3-4 minutes this is what we got

Kinda looks like a doggie if you look in the bubble. We got frozen lines in there but no real cool patterns. The wind started to pick up which causes the bubbles to do this….

It was a fun experiment! Wonder what we’re gonna do next?

Happy Holidays

Woke up to some snow today. First White Christmas we have had in many years!

Got all bundled up and spent just a little time outside. It was really cold here in the 937. I forgot to share that I learned to wrap presents this year

I’m not great at it yet but Ohiophotogrl says I’ll get better at it.

Hope you all had very relaxing and holiday season. We did. Spent some time with family and begged out. Was a great few days off but I myself am ready for life to get back to normal! I mean I have adventures to take!

Wonder what we’re gonna do next?

An Eclipes

Today where I live we had a partial eclipse.


I got some special glasses so I could watch and we made some pinhole boxes to look at the eclipse. 

How did the boxes work…


You need a box, some aluminum foil and some tape! You cut two holes on the top. One to look through and one to put aluminum foil on. You take a needle and put a small hole in the aluminum foil. Tape it on and there ya go. Here is a few shots that we got.




It was a lot of fun to watch this. Here is Ohiophotogrl and I enjoying our time


NASA of course got some better shots 


But what ever you do don’t look directly at the sun. We don’t want to hear any stories of anyone burning there retina.  We love science! 

Wonder what we’re gonna do next?
