Photo journaling

Some photos from the last week or so.
The clouds mimic the trees.  (This morning)

I finally picked up my crochet hook.  (First time all summer.)  My aunt's doggie chewed a hole in her rug-so I unraveled it and fixed it.


I bought another mug-well, actually two.  (The other one is blue inside.)  I couldn't resist the color being inside the mug.  They were only a quarter a piece at a little Amish thrift store, ten minutes from my house, so I bought them.  I really do need to get rid of some mugs I don't use, though-no more room in my cupboards!

A busy, little bee gathering pollen in my great, big, beautiful sunflower.

This sunflower-one of my two-has gone horizontal.  That's a heavy load to carry.

The pole in my yard-I always get a little mad at the electric/telephone lines when they obstruct my nature shots around my yard.  Then I think-what a hypocrite I'm being.  I love electric and internet service, so how can I be mad?                     



Switchblade-my brother-in-law's stray kitten.  He/she's so cute!

Into the woods-one of hubby's gator trails.  I always peek to in to see if there's any wildlife in there.

The obligatory pumpkin shot!  (My daughter in 1994.)  I recently found this photo when I was cleaning out the underneath of our entertainment center.  (I got rid of a trash bag full of stuff-felt good!)

Have a great rest of the weekend!

Photo journaling

Some photos (and a little video) from the last week or so:
Little spice bottles (that I bought at Goodwill many years ago) make cute little vases, I think.

Afternoon tea!  (The little school chair was-like 25 cents-from Goodwill years ago, too.)

A kitchen corner

Roadside grapes-only a handful.  Two years ago, I picked a bucketful and made some grape jam.

Roadside flowers. (Actually they are from the edge of my neighbors yard.) He doesn't mind that I picked them.

Banana-coconut milk ice cream-again!

Monday's cotton candy sunrise-the dip in the trees is where the road is.

What are 'moo' lookin' at?

The cows came to see me the other morning.

Above is one of my two sunflowers-gorgeous!  Below the 'other' sunflower (which hasn't bloomed yet) can be seen taking a beating from a little storm we had this afternoon. (Our parakeet, Phoenix, can be heard in the background.)  Have a wonderful day!

Some photos from the last week or so.
Zinnias on my windowsill.

I found these 5 inch square frames at Goodwill.  I hang things on the beams in my bedroom because there's not much vertical wall space in there. 

A sunflower outside my window.

Late bloomer-because I'm a late planter.

A garden spider with its din-din.

Lovely evening sky one night last week.

Gone to seed.

Mr. Grasshopper chomping on one of my two sunflowers.  That's fine-I'll share.

Looks guilty as heck to me!

Buddy-my mom and dad's doggie.

OUT with the old.

One of my mom's unruly zinnias

Basket building~Longaberger Basket Company's headquarters in Ohio.  My brother-in-law sent me this pic because he knows I like stuff like this.  Isn't the building quite amazing?
Have a great rest of the week!
