Walk on

Inauguration nears... "Sully" successfully landed his plane on the Hudson river creating a good beginning for the new year for all of us who hope for better things in this world. Are you encouraged? I am. The key is as Winston Churchill once said: "Never give up, never, never, never!"

Biggest Full Moon of 2009

Here is the full moon in color (see captions below). You can get images of the moon as the sun sets and the moon begins to rise, but make sure you have your spot already mapped out because the timeframe is short for the light.

Biggest Full Moon of 2009

According to NASA the Saturday 10th moon appeared 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter because of it being at its closest point to us on its orbit. We witnessed a very bright full moon over Camp Verde.

Ladder I built

There is a long story behind this one.
On December 4th, my husband went to clean the chimney and because of our old ladder was very wobbly, he fell off 7 feet. During the fall the fence caught his knee which then ended in a busted patella and in a major knee surgery. (He is still recovering from it) Well, the old ladder has been now scrapped, and so I found some solid lumber and built a new one. This is how it looks. I told my husband that my training in webdesign is paying off... :)

Snow covered Bradshaws

We had a semi-white Christmas. Off and on snow storms left the mountain tops white. At this elevation it is pretty cold so the snow will probably hang on for a while.

Bradshaw Mountains in the Morning Light

The morning sun casted a beautiful light over the Bradshaw Mountains. As previously stated my husband and I were out early enjoying the morning sun colors and it was well worth it.

Sunrise of 2009

This morning I saw the orange sky and so I told my husband: lets go! As a result both my husband and I hobbed into the car in our pyjamas and drove around admiring the beautiful morning.
