Everlasting Life

Hearing Hubby’s excited voice got my attention. He was babbling on about a cloud he had to capture. I saw him running out the door with his camera.

Serendipity

While eating dinner last evening, my eyes repeatedly gazed at a particular sight I saw out my window and I thought, “I wonder if I could capture what I am seeing with my camera.” I looked and wondered all the time as I ate. When finished with dinner, I went to get my long lens … Continue reading Serendipity

Hearts’ Vow

Disjointed Realities

*Play music while you read.*   Beep. Beep. From around the corner while cleaning out a kitty litter pan, I heard beeps.

Sure enough my husband had not only stopped the food timer I had running but he set it … Continue reading Disjointed Realities

Love Is In The Air

A portion of the Love Dance I witnessed ‘tween two Flickers ~~~~~~ Walking in the pouring rain yesterday paid off as I witnessed a Love Dance between two Flickers.

What Will Be

That morning, I put a stone in my jean’s pocket after getting dressed. Carefully I made sure that stone was way down at the bottom of my pocket for safe keeping. I had finally made another hair appointment after canceling my original one. I made sure all our cats were stable and that Hubby had … Continue reading What Will Be
