To Know

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

Encouragement

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. Hundreds if not thousands of pictures have been taken in past years. There is something about Fall that is so … Continue reading Encouragement

Getting There!

Friends, I am getting there. I’ve gone through 72 pounds (32.66 kg) of fertilizer so far. To give you an idea of what I’ve done, I followed the “per plant” directions which state for each established plant, work 1 cup of fertilizer into soil around drip line. To go one step further, I weighed that … Continue reading Getting There!

Bungled Bombshell

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

Meet The Family

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. As she was taking acupuncture needles out of her case for Doodles’ acupuncture treatment, … Continue reading Meet The Family

Smoky Mirror

Those who do not show kindness to others do not show gentleness to themselves.   Those who do not show encouragement to others do not show support to themselves.   Those who show anger to others show vexation to themselves.   Those who show ridicule to others do not show high self-esteem to themselves.   … Continue reading Smoky Mirror

Where?

Many may ask where is God in this world gone mad? My answers to those who do not see …   In the sunlit grasses swaying in the wind   In the innocence of a sleeping cat   Ready to meet you on the Rocky Road   Found in the golden silence of the trees … Continue reading Where?

Learning New

  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

Awareness

“Generosity, morality, respect, service,  ….. meditation — these are actions for the good. Each one is a practice that can be cultivated and further refined, becoming the causes for our own happiness and the happiness of others. These acts for the good become our gift to the world.” Joseph Goldstein This is my third attempt to write … Continue reading Awareness

The Station

In much need of my therapist, I opened the cupboard door, reached in, and firmly took hold of my sanity check. From there I slid open our glass patio door to sit on our picnic bench. All Summer I’ve wanted to shoot those who come to my Hummingbird feeder and I just yesterday got around … Continue reading The Station

Life!

What are the chances it poured yesterday, the very day I planned on watering all my gardens? In fact, I had a sprinkler on, timer set, as I went upstairs to change from my pj’s into the clothes for the day. By the time I came back downstairs, a matter of about I’d say no … Continue reading Life!

Math Help

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. Hubby’s eyes came to life after I … Continue reading Math Help
