Singular

It’s no secret that flowers can’t come into my home without being photographed. When my neighbors learned of my friend Linda’s passing, they sent over a beautiful bouquet and a lovely card. Hubby and I are blessed to know them and count them as friends, not merely neighbors. Today’s image is of a singular bloom…

New Phone

I believe electronics are like cars … they’re designed by engineers and built so that we have to replace them every few years. Such is the case with my smartphone. It’s been dying a rather slow and painful death for a while now. So I had to buy a new one. I really like it,…

I Am So Grateful for You

Lately I haven’t had the time to catch up with all of you, my faithful readers and fellow bloggers. With the passing of my friend last Friday, I feel like I’ve been pulled through a knot-hole backwards. With that said, please know that I really value your friendships even though, in most cases, we’ve never…

Black and White Challenge Day 5

I’m ending this black and white challenge with an image I took at Alcatraz. When I look at this, I think of all the inmates who spent their lives there and many died there. I thank God that I never made choices that would put me in a place like this.  Can you imagine looking…

Black and White Challenge Day 4

Our friend, Linda, went home today. Home with God. You can see how beautiful she was HERE. She was beautiful on the inside, too. Sometimes wildly funny, always a good sport, and always caring for others. I’m grateful for her presence and what she added to my life. We all knew she was going to…

Black and White Challenge – Day 3

Day 3 of the black and white challenge … keeping it short and sweet today.  Enjoy the roses (and remember to stop and smell them).  Namaste’ Regina (Reggie) Arnold is a “flunked retirement” entrepreneur, co-author of The Art & Science of Recruiting, an award-winning photographic artist, and photo blogger

Black and White Challenge – Day 2

Busy day today but feeling like I need to continue this challenge. Something I enjoy to the max. So here I am with the clock striking midnight in a few minutes with today’s contribution. I made it just under the wire 🙂 This is Jazz. My sis-in-law (the sister I’m not related to by birth…

Black and White Challenge Day 1

I borrowed the black and white challenge from a fellow blogger who also lives in Central Oregon and this is my first installment of a week-long fulfillment. Last November we had our first giant snowfall and this is what we saw when we opened the garage door after 2 1/2 days of the white stuff….

It’s Raining Pine Cones

Having never lived in the Northwest before, I’m not quite used to dodging falling pine cones from our very tall Ponderosa Pines.  This little gem came raining down and nearly whacked me on the head.  So of course I had to photograph it. I wonder if I could sell these to my friends who live…

The Hill People

We’ve been blessed lately with lots of sunshine. Yay! When I was out basking in it the other day, I looked up on the hill from our back yard and noticed how the sunlight was illuminating the “house on the hill” as I like to call it. So I decided to take advantage of the…

Have You Seen My Ball?

Since it’s Throwback Thursday I thought I’d post this picture of Daisy (taken last year) with her favorite orange ball.  It moved with us all the way to Oregon and now it’s missing. And believe me, we’ve looked in every nook and cranny inside and outside. She has plenty of other balls and toys, but…
