It's winter here in Iowa.....

Yesterday it was 57F and I was able to take a nice hard bike ride but the weather went crazy late last night. This morning there was snow on the ground and it snowed pretty much all day.
This is the view out the back door....

This was the view out the front window.

The National weather service says we had 6 1/2" in the last 24 hours. 12F isn't that cold when you are shoveling and walking behind the snow blower. It was good exercise anyway.

Many of you may not know that I'm attending school full time and I finished my week's work today. We finish a class every 5 weeks and the new week begins each Tuesday. My time from now until next Monday will be spent reading a how to manual on the Canon 7D camera. We are shooting a wedding in about 15 weeks and I want to be proficient with the 7D by then.

I talked about providing some pictures of the first bobbin of my latest spinning project...

The color is a little off but here it is. The card with the fiber says it's Ruby Red. What a joy to spin the BFL. I'm looking forward to the next two ounces.

update... I ate 1416 calories, exercised 1248 calories away. The net of 168 calories against the 1996 calorie budget. 

Off to spin a little bit before I turn in for the night.

Life is good

  1. Jerry, taking classes are really good. I discovered I was a much better student as an adult than I ever was as a teenager or young adult. I went back in 2001 and got so frustrated with the process (one or two classes at a time), that I enrolled in a degree completion program at Tiffin University in Ohio. It was one class every five weeks on Thursday evenings for 22 months. We had one week off during the entire time (4th of July 2005). I finished with my Bachelors in Business Admin in July 2006 and started on my MBA in August 2006, finishing that within 11 months. Phew. Good luck with your classes. I hope you enjoy yours as much as I enjoyed mine.
