A couple of weeks ago, a fellow blogger shared her visit to Lilacia Park. I was excited to be reminded of it before the lilac season ended, and I made sure to go a couple of days later. Continue reading “Comparisons and a Mission Statement”
Color and Light
A week ago today, I was walking the dog and this is what we saw. 👇
Dear Mother Nature
Dear Mother nature,
your wind storm
reminded us to put away
our patio furniture for the season
When we arrived in Appalachia, the hills were mostly green. As each day passed, like magic or special effects in a movie, green morphed into ambers, rusts, pinks, and scarlets (see header photo). Continue reading “Halloween Month”
Embrace the Journey
Greenery Green (and other Colors)
I took a little time away from blogging for the week of the 4th of July and posted without commenting anywhere.
Instead of my usual deep, philosophical posts, I’m back with a lighter topic today.
Do you like flowers? Do you grow any?
This is what it looked like in my neighborhood on Wednesday. Gorgeous day. Temperature mild.
Our summer was extra dry, which is likely why our fall came late. Didn’t show up until the first week in November.Continue reading “Almost Over”
Since I’ve Been Gone
Since I’ve been gone from the blogging world, WordPress changed the format for drafting and posting. I don’t like it. It’s taking me forever to figure out how to add photos. What is this block thing? Why can’t I just write paragraphs as if on a page? Why do I need blocks? So frustrating. 🤦♀️Continue reading “Since I’ve Been Gone”
Over the weekend we went to a nature park near our house. The weather was a little cool, but otherwise, gorgeous. No greenery yet, but it will be here soon. Continue reading “Lingering Effects”
I heard a familiar song outside my kitchen window, and guess who I found singing to me?(Please excuse quality of photos. They are taken through the window).
I found an interesting philosophical writing by someone on social media who uses an anonymous name. I’d like to give them credit for it, but I don’t know who it is that wrote it.
Words for Wednesday
Can You See 2020?
That’s what I keep hearing everywhere I go.
Is It Me?
Boy the news cycle changes fast these days, doesn’t it? From a virus, to lockdowns, to opening/closing schools, to chaos in city streets, to wildfires, to hurricanes, and the sad death of a Supreme Court Justice. Whew. I’m out of breath. Continue reading “Is It Me?”
Hi. That’s me in the shadow waving hello to all of you. Can you make out where I might be waving to you from? Take a look at the picture below. Continue reading “Snapshot Slideshow”
Photos, Fiction, Friends, Fun, Flowers, and Faith
Last week was the first time I returned to the blogging world in a little over two months, and I posted a deep, heavy subject about control. This week I thought I’d go with a lighter subject to share a little bit about what I’ve been up to, and maybe even a tiny spark of hope.
Continue reading “Photos, Fiction, Friends, Fun, Flowers, and Faith”
Coasts, Canines, and Crafts
Things are still hectic around here, but I thought I’d post a little something I did on my staycation by playing a game with my (rank) amateur photos. What’s the difference between this body of water above and the one below? Hint: The answer is not the watermarked year.
Continue reading “Coasts, Canines, and Crafts”
Thank you for this past Sunday, for the vibrant sky, and the refreshing hint of spring, soon to awaken and beautify.
Griping or Grateful?
Every year as January 1st draws near, I hear some people say, “I can’t wait to start the new year. Thank God this one is almost over.”
