You've seen me mention all of the snowstorms we've been hit with over the past couple of weeks. Here's the proof. Those of you who live in Southern New England really don't need the proof, because your houses are snowed in just as much as mine. :-) The proof is in the pudding........errrr.......I mean the proof is in the snowbank.
On the bright side for those of you sick of the snow........the first day of Spring is only 50 days from today (which is also day 365 for this project) It will be here before we know it.
My Mom has given Miss J her pearl necklace. I brought it home with me today. Please cross your fingers that the necklace goes with Miss J's wedding dress. She really hopes to wear it on her wedding day. It will mean the world.........to both of them!
After a foot of snow fell overnight, the sun came out mid-morning.......and we were graced with a gorgeous day. Today was a day I explored a few areas where I have never been before. The above photo is a barn at "The Eddy Homestead" in Middleboro MA.
These next photos were taken at another "homestead", called "The Soule Homestead", also located in Middleboro MA. I have never heard of this educational center before, but after visiting the website when I got home today, this is a place that I am hoping to visit again in the Spring and Summer.
Well, all I can say about this winter so far is "Thank you Mother Nature". She certainly is providing Southern New England with a lot of snowfall........a very good thing when doing a 365 day photography project. We woke up this morning to another round of the white stuff. Today was a light snow.....we got about an inch or two.
Tomorrow night promises yet another snowstorm. :-)

I'm sorry for the lame photo today..... But, this is a plug for one of my favorite new-found snacks. Do you like those Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies? (Why, of course you do.......doesn't everybody?) Well then, I recommend you go out and buy yourself a pack of these Quaker Chocolatey Mint Mini Delights. They are like a rice cake with a chocolate mint drizzle..........pop them in your mouth and you swear you're eating one of those Girl Scout Mint cookies.
One pack of these contains 90 calories and 3.5 grams of fat
One serving of the Girl Scout Thin Mints (4 cookies) contains 160 calories and 8 grams of fat.
I'm just trying to figure out how to limit myself to just one pack though............
O.M.G.!!!!! It was COLD and WINDY this afternoon. BUT.........that did not stop me and my good friend Diane from heading out to photograph the new fallen snow. Yes siree........we got another 7 inches of the white stuff today.
When we couldn't take the cold and wind for one more minute, we hiked back to the car........just as we got there, the sun decided to break through the clouds. Hoping to catch a nice winter sunset, we headed to the Duck Pond in Rockland. There was not one feathered friend to be found there today, but we did find the sunset we were hoping for.
Yup, we were cold. Yup, the wind was almost unbearable at times. Yup, we loved every minute of it. :-)
Come on.......I'm a "Boston" girl and grew up listening to the local boys "Aerosmith". These guys all live on the South Shore of Boston........in my "hood" so yes........I'm really happy to see my man Steven Tyler taking on a new role as an American Idol judge. He's looking good......his latest stay in rehab has done him good (and I mean that in a serious sense by the way) I wish him luck and hope he does well in this new venture.
How beautiful is J-Lo by the way??????
I'm not one for watching much tv. I usually limit my watching to the HGTV shows and the Food Network Shows. However..........American Idol is ONE show that is on the must see list for me. I'm glad the new season has started. It helps to break up the monotony of the dark winter nights.
There's nothing better than sitting by the fire on a bitter cold winter's night, as the snow is falling outside. Only thing...........this isn't a real fire. It's one of those little electric stoves. I LOVE this thing!!! It throws off some unbelievable heat, and it adds such a cozy look to the room.
I hope you are all warm and cozy wherever you are as well!
Even though the storm hit yesterday, the waves along the coast were still quite impressive today. This is a shot of Minot Light off the coast of Cohasset Beach in Cohasset MA. It was COOOOLD and WINDY out there, but it was worth it.

On another note, today is day 300!!!!!!!! I can't believe we hit the 300's already! Sixty five more days to go!!!!!!!!!
What a difference a day makes, huh? After getting nailed with a Nor'easter overnight and all day today, the snow is finally winding down. I find the "pop" of red color in a snow scene to be very pleasing..........be it a red barn contrasting against the white snow, or a person out in the snow wearing a red jacket, and one of my most favorite red/snow scenes is a male Cardinal against a snowy background.
It's a rare opportunity to photograph these two at the same time. Abby typically turns camera shy......and she usually will not look my way when I have the camera in my hand.........it drives me nuts! I caught the two of them sunbathing in the sunlight that was streaming through the window this morning. Granted, Rudy looks like a gangster thug in this shot..........

What does this photo of Abby have to do with New year's Day? Well, nothing really. :-) She just looked so darn cute in her pink hoodie sweatshirt, all curled up on her blankie, that I just had to take her picture.
Abby and I would like to wish you a very happy, healthy, prosporous new year!
This blog first began as a 365 day project. It was a lot of fun to post daily, but as life changes and evolves, so has the purpose of this blog. I hope to share with you the things that I love to photograph in and around New England, as well as an occasional glimpse into my everyday life.
I am a Mother, Wife, Daughter, Friend, and Photographer. I also work part time in a local hospital. Thank you for taking this photographic journey with me.
