Weekly Photo Challenge: Companionable

Since this week’s photo challenge is companionable,  I decided to post this image of hubby and his twin sister.  What better companion than a twin?  Of course I didn’t take this photo.  I wasn’t even on the planet yet – LOL! According to them, they’re about three years old here and I just think it’s…

A Rare Sight

It’s a rare sight around here to be able to photograph the sun.  There was just enough cloud cover last night to let it shine through without burning my eyes (I hope).  Today is all about indoor activities, like cleaning out some files, because we’re supposed to hit 113 or higher today. I heard that…

American Southwest (A Peaceful Journey)

A good friend of ours who lives in San Francisco sent me this video the other day.  I just now had a chance to watch it and decided to share it with all of you, especially my readers who have never been here. I think each part of this beautiful planet has its own special…

Can You See Me If I Can’t See You?

It’s that time of year in the Old Pueblo when the lizards come a-callin’ and this one tried to hide from me but I got the shot anyway.  Daisy usually patrols the perimeter and somehow missed this one (she was probably napping), or she would have chased it down.  He’s hanging on the wall with…

Weekly Photo Challenge: The World Through Your Eyes

So much going on today; so many feelings and emotions.  Maybe it’s the Summer Solstice, but let’s just take a moment to send light and love from our hearts to the hearts of all other beings on our beloved planet.  That’s it – close your eyes and beam love out for just 10 seconds.  Thanks!…

Backyard Buddy

Hope all the Dads out there had a wonderful Father’s Day.  Someone once told me that every child needs a champion and, in most cases, it’s Dad.  Oftentimes, though, in the case of divorced families, Mom has to be Dad and Mom both, so if that’s you, Mom, I salute you.  I know what that…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Curves

Sometimes I participate in the WordPress weekly photo challenge; sometimes I don’t.  But this week was pretty easy.  The subject is curves – not mine – that’s for sure 🙂 The first image is of a downtown parking structure. Made me kind of dizzy just to look at it.  There is no digital enhancement to…

No Vocals Needed

This video of Glenn Beck absolutely resonates with me, which is why I’m posting it.  Some people like what he stands for; some don’t and that’s OK.  It sure seems that he’s had an epiphany, as so many others are having of late. His vocal cords are paralyzed temporarily so you won’t hear him speaking. …

The Boys of Vegas

From the archives today, I found this shot of “The Boys of Vegas.”  Well, technically, they all live in Henderson, a suburb of Las Vegas. I sure enjoyed photographing them when hubby and I visited his twin sister, Carryl, and her husband a couple of years ago.  She’s a pet sitter and all of these…

How do the guys feel about this?

This video came to my inbox and I found it to be very profound.  My question, though, is this:  do men feel the same way?  Let me know your comments below. Have a great Sunday.  Namaste’

Drink up!

With the heat in the triple digits here in southern Arizona and other parts of the west, it’s time to take a lesson from our canine pals.  Here’s Daisy taking a nice cool drink on a hot day.  I’ve noticed that both dogs are drinking more water even though they don’t spend much time outside…

The Top Five Regrets

As a subscriber to Early to Rise newsletter, I especially enjoyed this article by Alex Green and wanted to pass it along to all of you.  Something to think about:  The Top Five Regrets Sure gets one thinking about what’s really important, as told by the elderly and the dying.  Even if you’re not old,…
