I didn’t get to go to UD this year, as I had other commitments (the writing series I just posted about). But, one of the things I’ve long loved about UMPI is that damn windmill. I love windmills (I am seriously going to plant one behind my house someday just so I can lay under it and stare at it). Fortunately, one night before class this spectacular sunset appeared and I hopped in my car so I could get a better view (and pictures).
It took me a few shots to get the shutter speed right, but the blur of the blades didn’t take away from the spectacular shots. Must love Maine sunsets!
I’m so anxious for May 15th. Do you know why? Because that is the day we are allowed in the ATV trails! Spring ATV riding is fun, and muddy, and the green is just beginning in the trees. Summer riding is all about the heat, the dust, and the beaming sun. Fall is all about the colors! And god, sometimes (most of the time) are they wondrous.
This is Storm. And this is the look I get all the time from her. The “I want what you have” look.
Jules still calls Storm “puppy”, and I keep reminding her, she’s not a puppy anymore. But, she is our big baby. We got her about a month after Julia moving in with me. Which would be abut a month after we started dating. Yup, we U-Hauled it – we had to be pretty committed, we got a dog together after a month.
I was looking through the vast amount of pictures that I have and I found these a few weeks ago.
That was on the 1st night that Storm got her new home with us. She’s was a pain. A cute pain. She had a funny looking cow nose and was shy. (That didn’t last long!)
We learned pretty quickly that she chewed through everything. Including her cords and collars. And so we upgraded on those pretty quickly.
She’s getting older, and so are we. She gauges the length of our relationship, so this year she’ll be ten. She still has moments of “Puppy Like Activity”. Like diving in head first into a snow bank this week and pulling us along on her extra long leash all summer long and smelling everything!
I guess she’s still kinna cute.
