Highlights from the Final Week of Christmas Vacation

I know Christmas vacation was completed awhile back, but I'm just now getting around to posting some photos from then. (Have I mentioned that I love not being confined by Project 365?) We took another ride on the new Metro Light Rail system, this time to experience some big college band sounds. The weather for the middle of the week was cold and rainy; hey, it's winter! That's not unusual around here. So first, here's the view from my front window, peeking out through the blinds:

And, the reason for the trip - the pep rally for The Ohio State University Buckeyes football team, prior to the Fiesta Bowl (yes, I know they eventually lost, but it was a very close game, and they played hard):

And the view looking up while waiting for the train to go home:

We had fun, and it was a nice way to get out of the house, even if we spent more time traveling than we should have. If you're not in a hurry, the light rail train is the way to go.

Jaunary 2, 2009

One of the nice things about not being confined by a Project 365 is being able to share photos from my archive. I've been sorting through lots and lots of film and digital photos; sadly, I have about two and a half years' worth of digital photos on an external hard drive that decided to die on me about nine months ago. We're still working on retrieving those.

Anyway, this photo is from August 2002, which means my daughter was six-years-old and my son was a young three-year-old. This is one of my favorite photos of the two of them because they're both very relaxed, and it was an ordinary day.
