Day 6

Went out for a sunrise that ended up pretty blah, and found a Common Goldeneye in great light!

I am ever impressed with this EF-M 55-200mm lens for my little Canon Mirrorless M2.  It was pretty cheap as a good lens goes, but it captures fabulous images!  This photo has only been cropped to 1440×960.  Nothing else has been done.

And with a little editing!

Day 3

More on that cup turner I made for the Dailylife Daughter #1.  She made me a cup!

 It is the center one.  A very nice looking wood finish!

 So here it is finished: Side 1…

…and Side 2!

Very nice!  Thanks!

Day 2

Although it got cold and snowed late on Christmas Day, so we at least a little bit of a white Christmas Day and the following week, it has been in the 40’s here today and the snow is going fast.  Soon we will see our backyard neighbor again, like these photos from a couple of months ago!

Day 365! Ten whole years of PAD!

Woo Hoo~!  Ten years of a Photo-A-Day!  It has been interesting, to say the least.  

Congratulations to Friend Robyn who has also (in October) completed a PAD for ten years!

So today was mostly watching the Grandkritters while their Mom worked, and the Dailylife Wife did also (just the morning for both of them).  And a $700 preventive 100k service on the car.  And that was planned BEFORE all of the drama today and yesterday!

The DD#2 was here over Christmas, and was to fly back to Seattle yesterday afternoon.  We dropped her at the airport at about 12:30 in a pretty good snow shower.  And as soon as she got through Security…they closed the runway due to weather.  I went back up and got her after she rescheduled for this morning’s flight.  Her’s finally did leave a bit after 5pm.

So this morning I dropped the Dailylife Wife at work a 5:45am, and DD#2 at the airport at 6am.  She took off just fine at about 7:15.

She says she could see the branches on the trees as they were landing at SEATAC, when the plane took a sudden, swift climb from the airport runway.  Then they circled for a while, then diverted to Yakima…where they landed so low on fuel the airport had the fire trucks out for them.  She finally arrived in Seattle at about lunchtime (an earlier time zone than here, so it was nearing 1pm my time).  It is suppose to be a quick flight from here…I think she was happy to be on the ground in the right place at last.  Even more exciting than when she took the train home from college and they got stuck for hours because of an avalanche or something! {!-{>

So an exciting end to 2018, and Ten Years of my Photo-A-Day!
