Lately all the political crap being shoved down my throat on every media outlet imaginable is just too much for me & my anxiety. It frustrates me how many people on both sides will post stuff that is not even factual. I seriously can not tell you how many times a day I roll my eyes after doing my own research.

rolling my eyes

I feel like shouting Google is your friend & so is the local library. Winking smile


So yesterday I gave my phone to the hubs so we would have a map and wouldn’t get totally lost in the wilderness and unplugged for several hours. We went on a nice 6 mile hike through the woods to the River. My back & feet hated me but my soul needed it!!!

It was so nice to just breathe in the fresh air and spend time chatting and laughing with my guys.


I am really hoping that everything going on in our nation today will soon make sense but in the mean time I think I will be unplugging a lot more this year!!

Happy Monday my friends.Red lips

Cupcakes & Cartoons Make Everything Better

I was having a minor pity party for myself yesterday so I decided I needed cupcakes and since I had some ripe bananas I made these banana cupcakes with peanut butter frosting. The recipe is on Playz With Food’s website. They are super tasty and I could probably just sit in front of the TV with a big bowl of the icing.Winking smile


Speaking of TV I don’t know about ya’ll but I am so over all the news and talk shows in the morning. So much negativity lately that I literally have been watching cartoons instead. Matt & Matilda prefer them anyway during our morning snuggle sesh. LOL

What have you been up to this week?


Been trying to practice motion shots this week and I have been failing miserably. Oh well there is always next week right??

The Sky Is The Limit


I went out last night to try my hand a photographing the night sky…Let’s just say my camera app for nighttime does a whole lot better then I do with my DSLR. It was bad…

Like just a big blob of black with a orb bad!Crying face

So I added some stars in PSE. It’s still my photo and I made the stars so it counts right??? Smile with tongue out

Then today I was trying to get some light flare which I got a bit of but I wanted to jazz it up.

So with the help of The Coffee Shop blog I made a little bit artistic.

I have been following her blog for a while and I love how she goes through the steps to really teach you how to do stuff.

I guess I better enjoy these blue skies cause according to our weatherman we are in for a soggy weekend.UmbrellaLightningEye rolling smile

And the weeds are coming up everywhere which makes me sad cause that means grass will start coming back in soon and Matt will be blowed up with a rash. Joys of having a dog allergic to everything…Crying face
