Day 67 - Snow Storm - Colorado Springs Style

Another reason I love Colorado Springs :)
When we moved here, I was terrified of all the snow - thought I'd be housebound for weeks at a time! nope! I didn't get the morning picture I wanted. On Thursday I woke up to swirling snow! all over the ground, coming down steady - could barely see. Then at around noon I went out and shot the bottom picture - see how the snow is still about 2" thick on the car? It was like that all over the yard and all. By 4 PM - top photo - it's almost all gone. Not ALL of our snow storms are like this, but in the 4+ years we've lived here, this is typical :) Snowstorm in the AM - Sunshine in the PM - wow.

Day 66 - Colorado Springs Neighborhoods

When we found out we were moving to Colorado, our children all thought we'd be buying a farm, horses and all! They were very surprised to find that most houses in Colorado Springs are in Neighborhoods with very small lawn areas. Here are a few photos to give you an idea of the typical Colorado Springs Home area.

Day 64 - I won!

I'm not a real 'contest' person but I won the 'Secret Word Contest on eBay Radio last week and won a cute little eBay tote bag - filled with eBayana goodies - Griff even included a 'shooting star' pin which has been my goal to earn for several years :)

Day 63 - Try again :)

Sorry my friends - have had difficulty staying motivated to keep up the posts. Frankly, I don't get out much, LOL
so I had a talk with myself and decided maybe my 365 blog would better be called "365 Days in the Life of a Colorado Springs Ebayer"  LOL
I'll post outdoor pictures as I can but other days you'll all just get shots of my daily life :) These photos are of my assistant, Sammi. The reason the bottom one is blurry is that I had tied her up in my measuring tape (I was measuring clothing) and she was a twirling dervish trying to get untangled, LOL 
Hope you enjoy and I will try again to post daily.
