July 10, 2021 – In a funk.

I’ll be honest, I don’t feel much like writing today. If I had my druthers, I’d rather post a picture. But I cannot do that because when I initially started this blog, I made a promise to write every day for a year, a promise I’ve already managed to break. I then made a modifiedContinue reading “July 10, 2021 – In a funk.”

July 9, 2021 – Photo

I came up with this composition during our ‘study of glass’ segment in photography class many moons ago. The three glasses were my paternal grandmother’s (the one who I had to ambush in order to visit). I have a few other things that belonged to her (an old vase and a very old set ofContinue reading “July 9, 2021 – Photo”

July 8, 2021 – Everything happens for a reason.

It is funny what people say in an attempt to provide comfort or reassurance. There are certain ‘favorites’ that I’ve heard more than a time or two, “I’ll pray for you”, “This too shall pass,” “It’ll all work out in the end,” “Don’t sweat the small stuff,” and then there’s my all-time favorite, “Everything happensContinue reading “July 8, 2021 – Everything happens for a reason.”

July 7, 2021 – Photo

I decided to share another photo from ‘the vault’ because even though I need to take some new pictures, it’s much too hot outside! I know I can take photos inside but I cannot think of anything inside that interests me enough to unearth my camera at the moment. I took this photo several yearsContinue reading “July 7, 2021 – Photo”

July 6, 2021 – Keeping up Appearances

An old British TV show came to mind today when I was sprucing up the front yard. My realtor requested ‘more color’, so my husband built a planter box from some old scrap cedar and rebar, and I filled it with a bunch of clearance plants that I purchased at Lowe’s (see photo). The purposeContinue reading “July 6, 2021 – Keeping up Appearances”

July 4, 2021 – Uncertainty

What an unusual week it’s been! Between the historic heatwave in the Northwest, the tragic condo collapse in Miami, the fire in the Gulf of Mexico, and numerous other newsworthy events, I am beginning to wonder if a state of ‘normal’ will ever return. Where we live, I’ve never experienced ongoing hot weather like I’mContinue reading “July 4, 2021 – Uncertainty”

July 3, 2021 – Photo

I felt compelled to feature this photo today because it makes me smile…and I could use a laugh right about now. As much as my dog drives me nuts, I cannot help but love her. She provides constant entertainment without actually trying. I know I continually complain about the excessive hair and snot and poopContinue reading “July 3, 2021 – Photo”

July 2, 2021 – Wishy washy.

Our realtor is going to kill us! My husband and I have been going back-and-forth about whether or not to sell our house. Yesterday, he told me to pull the listing. “Why don’t we give it a month and then if it doesn’t sell, we can pull it,” I suggested, “It’s only been six days.”Continue reading “July 2, 2021 – Wishy washy.”
