To know what love is what love isn’t has to be experienced first and then and only then real love becomes known to the heart. ~~~~ I get super nervous photographing people as I feel it is an invasion of privacy. If I do take human pictures it mostly is from the back or in … Continue reading To Know
Just the other day I decided to go to Chestnut Ridge Park, camera in tow, with hope I’d hit the peak Fall colors. I wasn’t in tiptop form that day, yet I insisted on going.

In leaning in close to encourage another it’s as though Heaven itself conjoins with Earth. ~~~~ Every other year since I have been blogging, I would literally run after the colors seen in Fall.

Friends, I am getting there. I’ve gone through 72 pounds (32.66 kg) of fertilizer so far.

To go one step further, I weighed that … Continue reading Getting There!
For a little while, I plan on being quiet as in not here. The time has come for me to close up my gardens and due to all else in my life, it is going slowly. I’ve had to temporarily say no to gym and to blogging. Presently I’m fighting to assist my back and … Continue reading Temporary Quiet
For about a week, my sister and I had been playing phone tag. Very unusual for us because we do our darnedest to return voice messages with a prompt phone call. We speak on a [gasp] landline phone, not a cell. My sister normally doesn’t turn her cell on so any texts I sent I … Continue reading Bungled Bombshell
Do any of us perceive what the future holds? No. Thus, live this day as though your last. Cease the grouching and smile instead. Why would you want to spend perhaps your very last day with a frown and a curse when you could very well have a wide smile upon your … Continue reading Life Is A Gift

Cookie, Whispers, Rusty Hanging out watching birdies and Mr. Chipmunk ~~~~~ My story for the day: Yesterday while at our Vet’s office, Hubby pulled out of the thin blue air something that had my head swiveling from him to our Vet.

I am always learning. Always. It seemed it was time for me to learn something new in my editing room. I use Photoshop just so you all know. I came across a blog recently that showed two functions in Lightroom that to me were new, camera calibration and radial filter. Knowing Lightroom and Photoshop … Continue reading Learning New
Written for Wendi. Bless you on your journey. Reading the words, “Always the battle of the Spiritual Warrior is with the self.

Yesterday I asked Hubby to help me figure out how much total square footage I have in my gardens. Why? The instructions on the fertilizers I plan on turning into the soil this Fall, direct me to put a certain amount in the soil per 100 square feet.
