It’s That Time Again

Anybody that’s been to my flower gallery has a very clear understanding of my love of flowers.  Something about them makes me feel closer to God, especially when I see them through my camera lens. And it’s the time of year when tulips are blooming.  I think it might be a little early, but then…

Priced as Marked

Not much to say about today’s photo except that I saw these sitting outside the supermarket where I usually buy groceries and they really caught my eye.  They’re all 20% off.  Priced as marked. Pretty easy way to get my photograph for the day.  It’s OK.  Some days we have to have easy.  Some days…

Aircraft Crossing

We live in an airpark, where most of the residents have a small plane (or two) and their own hangar.  I love the sound of small planes taking off.  For some reason, it reminds of the best parts of my childhood. Neither my husband or I know how to fly a plane, nor can we…

Drop Your Pants Here

When we lived in Ventura, CA (sure miss that place), we were always going to the local craft fairs down by the beach.  Sure miss that place.  Did I say that already? I remember specifically buying this sign on a beautiful, sunny, warm day and it has traveled with us to each place we’ve lived…

Old But Not Forgotten

Oh, if only this old door could talk.  Wonder what it would say.  It belongs to my neighbor, who saved it from her parents house many moons ago.  For some reason, when I saw it, it reminded me of the old houses in the Garden District of New Orleans.  I was there many years ago…

Perspective, My Dear, Perspective

Last night we watched the new show TOUCH on Fox with Kiefer Sutherland. I really liked his series, 24, so I was trying to remain open-minded when it came to this new one.  At first I thought it went a little slow, but as the hour progressed, I realized there was a very clear message…

The Recipe

While running errands today, I found this van in a parking lot and thought they were pretty ingenious to advertise this way. I can’t remember the last time I had a Girl Scout cookie but I sure like them and having some sure sounds good right now.  I’ve always thought the Girl Scouts was a…

The Beach House

This is a picture of the sign on our patio. The Beach House … a place where we want to retire someday.  We already have a vision board about it.  If you aren’t familiar with a vision board, it’s a place where you put pictures or photos or drawings (whatever works for you) of the…

Diva Daisy

This is Daisy, the Diva.  Why do we call her a diva?  Well, it could be because she wants ALL the attention.  If one of us (me or my husband) is giving attention to Foxy, that just won’t do in Daisy’s eyes.  When visitors come, she looks up at them and barks, like “Hey, look…

Foxy

When you’re searching for the photograph of the day, why not just look in your own back yard?  Here’s a shot of our canine cutie, Foxy.  We adopted her from a local shelter when she was five months old. That was six years ago and we have never regretted it.  Well, we might have for…

Bragging Rights

OK, most of the time I’m bragging about how nice the weather is here in southern Arizona in the winter.  A lot of us Arizonans do that; we’re probably over the top about it.  You can’t help but overhear  folks around here on the phone with their friends and relatives in colder climates.  Everybody over…

Keep Calm and Smell a Rose

There seems to be a lot of “stuff” coming up for people these days.  I’m hearing more and more accounts of feelings, vibes, emotions, whatever we want to call them that are surfacing now. Is this an effort to discard any old baggage we might be carrying around with us?  Maybe from past incarnations? Maybe…
