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
Yesterday I went for a 4-mile walk with my long lens just for fun. I’ve been working really hard for months getting some pretty incredible wildlife pictures which if you are not a photographer, is intense. It was time for me to take a break. I decided I was going to shoot whatever caught my … Continue reading That Little Kid
Hubby asked me if I used several images to create this one picture. My answer was no. I couldn’t even if I knew how to, which I don’t. (smile) I was told the composition was exceptional, and to be truthful I was in awe as well. Just this one picture I could look and look … Continue reading Own It!
I’m discovering sexy in sixty (+). Get the title now? I would have within a moment’s notice told anyone the “feeling sexy” days are long behind me. Recently, though, I’ve discovered quite by accident I can still pull sexy off. Imagine that. It’s easy to feel sexy when you are younger. Remember that, younguns. When … Continue reading Replace “E” With “I” And Delete “T”
Recently, I obtained another pair of eyes. Hubby’s as a matter of fact. He decided to come along with me on a photo shoot. I grabbed this opportunity and ran with it. That man really got into the spirit of things. On location, he immediately began to scout, looking all around, even pointing at gravel … Continue reading Treasure Hunt
Why are roses symbolic of Love when along with the rose come very sharp thorns that if not handled with care do prick and make bleed? Could roses be representations of Love because Love includes both Beauty and pain? ~~~~~~ Handheld manual macro photography/ “Roses … Continue reading Love And Roses
Without the walk with the talk actions are fraught in empty naught. Walk your talk solid and true for those around you to believe in you. Otherwise you aint but a taint in this world a blight a nuisance ζ an empty shell rattling in your own hell. ~~~~~ Why else does the butterfly … Continue reading Consequences
There are times when something happens that leaves me stunned to my Soul. That day is when it happened. Tired, aching from all the gardening I’ve been doing, I was out on a trail all because my Heart directed me to go. My sore hands and wrists could barely handle my heavy long lens. However, … Continue reading Miracle
Last week was straight out of a nightmare. I’ve spoken to some who admitted the same thing. The top horror story in my life is I lost over 200 pictures that were taken at my fav park. My computer gobbled them up after I uploaded them into my editor. That, or I did something I … Continue reading Rainbow
How many of you have had a conversation with Nature lately? I had fun the other day as I really connected with some Beauties and had some rather interesting interactions. Wanna see? Well then, let’s continue! “Gosh I just went through bird-birth and I’m pooped!” *Female Mallard Duck* “It’s been such a cold … Continue reading Nature Talks
Have you ever been lied to from someone you put your entire trust in? Years go by and what you know to be truth one day, someone comes along and tells you is not. Instead of becoming angry and upset towards the one who told you the lie you knew as truth, you become … Continue reading Lies And Betrayal

This catapulting will bring you in Now Moment and perhaps even Bliss. For me to be crawling in the mud is a JOY like no other. As … Continue reading Fly To Bliss
Have I been missed? It’s been so long since I’ve been here (at least it feels that way to me). Blame the Forest. I just can’t keep away. I’ve taken so many pictures that if I posted all of them, well, let’s just say, we’d be here forever and a day. Obsessed I have been … Continue reading Feathers and Friends
As I began the arduous job of cleaning out my gardens, I saw up close and personal, signs of Life. Despite the fact that my garden muscles have begun to protest, when I finished cleaning out gardens the other day, I turned around, picked up my camera, and crawled in those very gardens. Yet … Continue reading New Beginnings
This post was supposed to be a double feature. Then I changed my mind, as only I’m apt to do especially when it comes to what I publish here. For those of you who are panting for flowers, know that my next post will show you the colors I found in my gardens. But first, … Continue reading First Experiment
I seemed to have picked up a “lost puppy” just the other day. Here I was, minding my own business, astonished just how many birds I was seeing and capturing. Then comes along this young man, who no matter how many hints I gave that er, I was busy, stuck to me like glue, talking … Continue reading Lost Puppy, Birds, And More
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
Pulling the trash bin out from under the kitchen sink, Hubby asked, “What are your winter gloves doing in the kitchen trash?” I answered, “Cuz they stink and the garbage is where they belong.” After years of plunging those gloves (with my hands in them) in Cherish the horse’s 5 gallon water bucket to … Continue reading Trash Is Trash
There I was, at ease, lying in the dental hygienist’s chair. That should have been my first red flag. I was at ease. I was comfortable, conversation and laughs flowing back and forth between me and the dental hygienist who is a sweetheart. The more she said how funny I was, the more laughs we … Continue reading Oopsie
Yesterday I ran an errand. Hubby who usually runs the errands has been strictly engaged with DataCad for more time then I care to admit. He is drawing blueprints so that he can accurately install a new sump pump and back-up system. That means I’ve been doing some of the errands so he can continue … Continue reading Snowscapes
Yesterday our electricity went out just as I was ready to clean our bathrooms. Instead of moaning, I opened a book to pass the time until the electricity came back on. One hour passed. That is when I jumped up off the couch ready for action just not willing to wait any longer. I retrieved … Continue reading You’ve Got This!
Are you willing to step off the busy wheel to slowly and gently reflect what 2018 meant to you? ~~~~ Did you meet your goals, your dreams or did you miss the mark and not even see how your dreams were lined up ready to be? ~~~~ Did you lay down any new … Continue reading 2018 Reflections
I will be taking some time off from WP, or at least that is what I “feel” I will be doing. I don’t even know if that will hold true. This Heart of mine can turn around without prior notice to tell me to come back here. We’ll see. For now, however, I am putting … Continue reading Message of Love
Now of course being I am only a mere human and therefore not nearly as intelligent as a Pileated Woodpecker, never saw it coming. I, the fumbling, heart in my throat, shaky photographer grappling below as this bird watched, managed to remove one lens to put on my big and very heavy 100-400mm lens. I … Continue reading Drats!
