Cat Chat

I just came across this draft of a post from 2013 that I never published.  I still like it, so here it is.  Our cat still sits atop the jelly cupboard every day, perhaps with the hope of a reply from the faces in the picture...who knows really what cats are thinking? The Weekly Photo … Continue reading Cat Chat

My Cookbook Cover

Using fresh ingredients in baking or cooking is always best, so say the experts.  When I read the Weekly Photo Challenge prompt ...imagine the cover of a favorite book, music album, or magazine; I could immediately see the cover of my future cookbook (another dream of mine).  I took the picture this past summer when … Continue reading My Cookbook Cover

Summer Adventure: Photo Challenge

I am not adventurous by nature, so it was truly a challenge to think of photos for this week's Photo Challenge.  I like to know where I'm going, how I will get there, and what could happen when I arrive.  I over pack making sure I have contingencies covered.  My husband, however, likes getting in … Continue reading Summer Adventure: Photo Challenge

Tale of Two Bugs: Weekly Photo Challenge

I took this picture with my phone when my husband and I were on a lovely trip to Vermont.  We were enjoying breakfast at the local diner and this bug joined us.  The sun hadn't yet come around to the window boxes so it was easy to get up close and personal! Check Out These … Continue reading Tale of Two Bugs: Weekly Photo Challenge

He Doesn’t Let Me Win, I Have to Beat Him Fair and Square

I took this one a few weeks ago.  I thought I was taking a bit of a short cut home but it turned out to be not so short.  It's on of the first things that popped into my head when I read the prompt for the Weekly Photo Challenge: ...capture something between two things, … Continue reading Photo Challenge: Betweens

A Little Something Extra (Weekly Photo Challenge)

A beautiful photo is one thing, but a photo with an unexpected detail has personality and pop. This week, share a photo that has a little something extra. No one who knows him would ever accuse my husband of being a party-pooper.  Quite the contrary. When I posted this picture on Facebook, a friend commented:  … Continue reading A Little Something Extra (Weekly Photo Challenge)

Just One More Snap(shot)

I guess I'm completely obsessed now with this prompt for the Weekly Photo Challenge; if three posts for the same prompt can be considered obsessed. I was looking through pictures on my laptop for some to send to a co-worker for an upcoming publication.  She asked if I had any from the recent Annual Walk … Continue reading Just One More Snap(shot)

Twisted Grapes

Today's photo challenge:  Twist These grapes are growing, crawling and twisting up the side of the garage; protected from critters thanks to the fences protecting the rest of the garden.  Today's thank you is to my husband for his green thumb and patience when it comes to growing beautiful things.  Can't wait to make jelly in … Continue reading Twisted Grapes
