Starting Over

My name is Beth. Welcome to the infrequently visited and even more infrequently updated blog known as "Sheepshead and Other Stories." The title is a carry over from my days as a card playing junkie, sitting at the all-night diner with DM, Keem, & company.

In the past year to two years, the posting on this site has decreased quite a bit. It saddens me, but it never saddened me enough to make a change. Well, I'm going to try to change this again.

To help me out, I'm going to try and post a new picture each night. Even if there is little to say going on, I'll at least have a picture. It's not like I'll run out anytime real soon.

No one is more surprised than I am at the changes my life has taken on recently. I'm discovering new interests that were hidden inside myself since becoming a homeowner. My house is not perfect, but I love it. The bathroom could be bigger and the basement have a lot less crickets in it, but I love that it is mine.

Gardening was a surprise interest. This past summer brought fresh green beans, summer squash, and lovely tomatoes. My flowers took off and the images will help me smile when it is cold during those long winter months.

I'll try to stop by and visit soon. Hope you are all doing well.

The first picture of this new series is of "Cloud Gate," otherwise known as the Bean. It is in Millennium Park in Chicago. I was anxious to see this sculpture and I was not disappointed. I loved it! If you like the image, please click it and go to Flickr. You can comment on it or favorite it on that site.
