Spring Swim

Kingsmill, off of Macaulay Road

Kingsmill has a great walking/bike path that cuts around the neighborhood.  It leads to a dirt path that goes to this water inlet that is part of Wareham's pond (I think).  It is a great place to come with the dogs, although I do generally feel that we "disturbing the peace" hah!

Green - its the color

I have a these cousins - they are cute. they keep up with what it hot and what is not. or if you read a different magazine; what is in and what is out. They "are in the know." And sometime in January or February (I don't really remember which) they were having a Facebook conversation about "the color" and lucky for me I happened to notice.  So I messaged my Aunt (mother to these girls) who is also "in the know" and asked:so before I go shopping I need to ask you. What color is "the color?" (I know I know - my 18 year old self is so disgusted with my lack of awareness)
and she helpfully supplied the following link:

And a friend from High School recently became a Stella & Dot representative and invited me to her opening party. So... I purchased the Zinnia Bracelet
and recently I bought Revlon's "posh" 571 nail polish
and so for about $60 or less, I'm feeling totally fashionable and trendy and I can still wear black.

(if you visit my blog because you like my photos and stories about Virginia, or you have a twisted sense of humor and enjoy my stories about kids, never fear.  My digressions into fashion trends are generally well spaced out- unless I'm on a craft or up-cycling tangent.  It is the challenge of not being able to focus on one interest.  But a blog per interest is really more than I can handle.)

Highland County

More Spring Break Photos

driving from Wintergreen Resort Virginia to Snowshoe Resort West Virginia to ski, we drive through Highland County on Rte 250.  It is a beautiful drive.  Thursday night it had snowed in Wintergreen, and while it turned to rain overnight and the roads were clear, we saw snow, melting snow, and lovely views with fog as we made our way to West Virginia.

These are driving through the mountains on Rte 250 in Highland County.

K took the next picture out the window of the car as we drove along. It is a 3 hour drive and I'm not sure exactly where she took this photo. I think it is along Rte 250 also.  photo 2013-04-02191705_zps26808bf3.jpg
