Project 366: Day 92

Camera
Standard

As is typical for me, I’m taking this day off; yes, even on this first day in April, also known as April Fools Day, I am taking the day off.

Today is my day to simply breathe and give thanks for all I have.

While I enjoy my day of rest, I hope you’ll enjoy this song bird, which serenaded me while I was visiting the Oakland Cemetery. I hope you’ll give thanks for all you have, too. Continue reading

Project 366: Day 50

Standard

I greet you with a good morning, good afternoon, good evening and good night.

I hope your Sunday is a day of rest and relaxation. May you find moments to pause, reflect and give thanks.

As I mentioned yesterday, we are watching Lily, while her parents are out of town. I contemplated vacuuming her parent’s place, as a surprise for when they returned. Lily put me in my place. Continue reading

Project 366: Day 41

Standard

As I mentioned yesterday, I took a walk on Tuesday evening and explored our neighbor’s land.

Mr. John is a nature enthusiast, and though he welcomes explorers, he has no tolerance for anyone disturbing or destroying his property. I’m very fond of the fact that Mr. John caters to a very large beaver den bordering one of the small lakes. You will find many downed trees felled by the beavers.

While I was walking along the raised walkway noticing a freshly chewed tree, I heard frogs calling each other.  Because still pictures are unable to capture sound, I decided to take a ‘talking’ picture. I hope you enjoy frogs on Friday. Have a ‘hoppy’ weekend! Continue reading

Ring Around the Rosy

Standard

I have not written a new post in nearly a week. I just told Rob that the voices in my head are so loud, I find it hard to maintain my composure when the real world becomes noisy.

My goal is to release the crazies within the next two day.

Before shutting down my computer and heading to a gathering of friends, I found this video of the boys. Filmed in 2008, the boys were ages 3 and 2. As I watched, I smiled widely and the voices were silent. Peace. God, I love my boys. Continue reading

Visiting Mr. and Mrs. Claus

Visiting Santa Dec 23rd 2011 (34)
Standard

We are lucky enough to live within 5 miles of Mr. and Mrs. Claus. Beginning on Thanksgiving, Santa and his wife open their house to the public every night thru Christmas Eve.

Santa begins the decorating process early in October, adding new decorations every year. We enjoy driving by their house in the fall, watching Santa prepare his grounds wearing his standard blue jeans and a red shirt. I don’t know that I’ve ever driven by Santa’s house and not seen him in a red shirt and jeans. Continue reading
