Do Not Give Up

Even when something seems too far out of reach, just about impossible, don’t let that stop you from at least going for it. If you do nothing by giving up, you may well have passed up a golden opportunity that would give you something you thought unreachable. That happened to me yesterday. Here I was … Continue reading Do Not Give Up

BIG Change

I must have asked the right question for within one hour of that question answers began to rapidly come in. As I was feeding Rusty yesterday morning, who hasn’t been eating the brand of food I’ve been feeding our cats, in my mind the words went something like this, “Rusty is only 8 years old. … Continue reading BIG Change

The Gift

Just last week, I “happened” to cross paths with two women while in a forest.¬†Within that conversation, I received an invite to join them and other women every Tuesday to hike in the woods. I noted the time and told them, despite the time slot for the hike which normally would find me taking care … Continue reading The Gift

Love Affair

Today’s tale involves my love affair with a horse. Yes, a horse. Our neighbors went on vacation and asked me to take care of their horse while they were away. Prior to this, I had been going over to the barn and pasture every day with apples and carrots, showing this horse how much she … Continue reading Love Affair

Gotcha!

I normally do not show three pictures of the same bird, but there are always exceptions especially when it comes to a bird I’ve been trying to capture for years. A gorgeous male Pileated Woodpecker was spotted almost immediately when I entered the park. Could it really be this easy when I’ve been “hunting” for … Continue reading Gotcha!

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

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

Unconscious Fear

Written for Wendi. Bless you on your journey.   Reading the words, “Always the battle of the Spiritual Warrior is with the self. Funding a will though action, yet¬†unattached to outcomes,¬†remaining¬†mindful that all you can do is stay out of your own way and let the Will of Heaven flow through you — these are … Continue reading Unconscious Fear

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

Own It!

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!
