Indoor gardening with the Aerogarden

About 13 months ago, Sherlock and I moved out of my parent’s house, and into a small apartment in town. Unfortunately, that meant I had to give up my garden space. I want to have a huge garden someday, but it will have to wait until I am able to buy a home. I wishContinue reading “Indoor gardening with the Aerogarden”

Starting a stockpile

Hello everybody! It’s been such a long time since I’ve shared anything here. I promise I’ll write more about what I’ve been doing for the last year later. Anyway, with everything that’s been happening in the world over the last 18 months or so, I’ve decided to start stockpiling food and other essentials. I knowContinue reading “Starting a stockpile”

Sherlock’s Birthday Celebration

A few weeks ago, I decided I wanted to do something special for Sherlock’s first birthday.  So, I started looking for a birthday cake that is safe for dogs to eat. I ordered a “birthday box” from Petco, but they were slow to ship it, so it arrived about 5 days after his birthday. TheContinue reading “Sherlock’s Birthday Celebration”

First Astro Photo – the Moon.

I’ve tried to photograph the moon before, but I never got the close-up view that I wanted, even with a telephoto lens. So I decided to try attaching my camera to my telescope. I took this picture with my Canon 5D4, using my Celestron Astromaster 114EQ telescope as a lens. This was my first timeContinue reading “First Astro Photo – the Moon.”

First Photos of the Milky Way

These photos are the results of my first attempt at photographing the Milky Way a couple weeks ago. I am absolutely thrilled that I was able to capture these and grateful that I live in a wonderful rural town that makes it easy to do this. I am convinced that there’s no way I couldContinue reading “First Photos of the Milky Way”

First night sky photos – the moon and Jupiter.

A few weeks ago, the night sky was clear, the weather was comfortable, and I had time to go outside and try to photograph it. I couldn’t get many stars because the moon was too bright, but I did manage to get Jupiter. These were taken with my Canon 5D4, and Tamron lens at 24mm,Continue reading “First night sky photos – the moon and Jupiter.”

One year old

Today is my baby boy Sherlock’s first birthday! I can’t believe he’s a year old already! I adopted him in November, and the months seemed to have flown by. I absolutely love him. He’s beautiful, strong, energetic, and very smart. He loves to play outside, so much so that I don’t know what I’m goingContinue reading “One year old”

Jupiter, Saturn, and the Milky Way

I’ve been interested in astronomy and astro photography for a long time, but never could find the time and a clear sky. Light pollution was also a big problem because I lived in the suburbs of a major American city. But, then I moved out here in rural Missouri, and now I can see moreContinue reading “Jupiter, Saturn, and the Milky Way”
