Over on my writings blog I posted an article I had published in Syracuse Family times in April 2005. Check it out HERE.

Here are some "Earthy" pics I took in the last few days:


A local lake at Sunset. We love to go walking, skating (ok, tried it twice) and biking there. There are miles of paved walkways along the lake for the skaters and bikers and a trail for walkers.

A trolley goes up and down the lake several times a day. When I babysat, I would often take the kiddies to the park- they thought the trolley ride was awesome!

They have a dog park, a big childrens playground and several smaller ones along the lake shore, and a skate park. My son LOVED that!

This one was happening in my yard just as I was leaving for my Journal Writing class last night:


Not sure how well you can see it, but it's a snake eating a frog! Of course the Princess, Ron, Golden Child, his GF and I had to watch for a while. Darned that snake for taking so long to eat! i had to get going....wouldn't do for the teacher to be late to class. If I don't believe the line, "The dog ate my homework", how can I expect my students to believe I'm late because "the snake ate my frog?" Is that an excuse? Would they REALLY believe it was MY frog?

Anyway, go love the Earth and it's people....and remember to check back tomorrow for Friday Fragments, Field Day Friday, and Virtual Girls Night Out!
