Happy New Year!! Wow.. 2009. I can’t believe its a new year. Most people make resolutions on for New Years, I usually don’t.  It just seems the perfect set up for failure.I do like to try to work on things I’m already trying to make better.. so maybe that’s kind of a resolution. I also redo some things to start the new year out. For instance I wanted to redo my photoblog a little bit, figured a change for the new year would be good. Well.. one of the things I really needed to do for my photoblog was to upgrade to the newer version, in order to do this I needed to upload to my PC the new files and then download and install them on my web server and then in various directories. It took about 2-2.5 hours to do this as there were hundreds of files that needed to be copied and because I couldn’t figure out how to copy folders.. I had to copy the files individually. Well.. I screwed it up  somehow. When I go the page all I get is a blank page.. even the admin page I use I get a blank white page. I have no idea what the problem is other then some files got messed up during the transfer. I wasn’t able to find what I did wrong so after taking a much needed break from sitting in front of the computer for hours I just thought what the hell.. I will just redo it. No sense in crying over spilled milk and I thought It could be good to start over.

Here is my new Photoblog.. which is indeed a bit better then the other one. Granted it will take me a bit to get a good portfiolio of my work on there but over all I think it will be a good thing.

On another note for some odd reason I have it stuck in my head that tea is good on New Years. Maybe it’s a cleansing ritual, or maybe it has to do with reading tea leaves for the year ahead. Could be something my mind made up or I really did hear it somewhere.. either way it seemed apprioriate and a nice way to start off my 2009 photographs and blog with a picture of my tea pot that Hayley gave me a few years ago for Christmas along with the new tea cups she gave me this year. So.. enjoy a cuppa and raise a toast to the new year and new starts to whatever you do however large or small..

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

~ Robert Frost ~

“Then followed that beautiful season… Summer….

Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light; and the landscape
Lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood”
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow~

I finally got around to washing and stemming the strawberries we picked this past Monday. I left but a few out and froze the rest. I may try to go back there and pick more just because there is nothing like having them in the winter when you just can’t take any more snow or cold. it’s a nice remembrance of summer.
