Seven Years!

I just got a Happy Anniversary message from WordPress. It’s been seven years since I started blogging on this platform. Wow! Time certainly flies.

New friends made. Loved ones passing. Pets going to the Rainbow Bridge. But through it all, something remains a constant. That’s YOU. All of you who blog here right along with me.

I don’t get to read as many as I’d like. Things have been busy around the homestead here in the Pacific Northwest. It’s Spring and that means a lot less rain and more sunshine. Yours truly likes that a lot. 🙂

Today’s image is one that I took as part of my granddaughter’s Senior pictures. I had so much fun photographing this lovely young lady. She’s as sweet as she looks. I can’t believe she’s graduating high school in two more days. I’ve been photographing her since the day she was born and have cherished every minute of it.

Time whips by. Did I say that already? LOL.

Masterpiece

This photo is of a collage of goodies and masterpieces that our granddaughter Annabelle sent us over a period of time.  We keep them in an honored spot.  Just thought I’d share.  I’m one of her biggest fans 🙂 And I miss her sooooooo much! Namaste’

The “Look”

It’s a well known fact that women are born knowing how to give the “look.”  You know what I’m talking about, guys.  The way she looks at you when you get dressed in something that doesn’t coordinate, or when you follow too close behind someone while driving, or you’ve just interrupted what she said, etc.  I could go on and on, but I don’t really need to.  You already know and so do the women out there, including me, who have perfected the art of the “look.”  I come from a long line of women who absolutely love to use the “look.”  And of course I’ve passed it on to my daughter and granddaughter 🙂

That’s why today’s photo is perfect for this subject.  I purchased this particular bottle of wine because she had the “look.”  And of course the name … Mad Housewife.  Too funny!  (It’s actually a great tasting Merlot).  Namaste’

Happy 12th, Miss Belle!

Today is our granddaughter’s 12th birthday and I honestly can’t figure out where all the time went.  I remember vividly the night she was born, though.  Her Dad and brother had just taken off in the boat to go fishing when Mommy went into labor.  I called the neighbor at the end of the inlet in hopes he could wave them down before they got out onto the lake.  Thank God he did.  As soon as they got back we all left for the hospital and it was only a few hours later that Annabelle was born.  I have to say that watching your daughter have a baby is rather nerve-racking – at least for me.  But through the years, even though I have never lived in the same state as they do, I have been blessed to spend some beautiful moments with Annabelle and her brother.  So Happy Birthday, Miss Belle.  Grammy and Gramps love you to the moon and back!  (These are some of my favorites of her, however, I probably have about 200 more).
