As many of my wonderful followers may know, my oldest kiddo will soon be spreading her wings and taking flight. She will be graduating in June. My little Miss Senior allowed me the opportunity and privilege of shooting her senior pictures. Now, with income very tight and basically no wiggle room in the budge for hiring a professional photographer, I had to bust out some ingenuity and my old photography skills from my short stint as a professional to really make some magic happen. What I really wanted was a new Nikon. Granted, I've never had one, but oooooh, the pictures they can take. Absolutely gorgeous! Nope. I didn't have that.
Canon? Nope. Didn't have that either.
Kodak? Ha... Nope
Fugi disposable? Un uh! Nope.
As fun as that sounds, I'm not really going to chase my shadow. Why, because we are going to be chasing that rascal, Punxsutawney Phil!
Good Tuesday to you!
In just a few short hours, ol’ Punxy will be letting us know if we can expect 6 more weeks of winter weather, or if Mother Nature will grace us with an early appearance. I don’t think I am alone when I say, “I am very ready for springtime!” The winter chill has definitely added to our homebody experience and I am itching to pitch the tent, grill some food and enjoy those long, lazy days!
However, it may be a little while longer before we get to see the blooms on the trees or even dig out the mower to cut down those pesky wild onions that seem to grow in abundance during March and April.
According to these FAQ’s, there are some pretty interesting things about Punxsutawney Phil that you might not have known!
There are also some very cute online games for your little ones. Disclaimer: I have not viewed all the games, please preview before letting your children online.
