Looking up…

Op-Sail was full of some wonderful sights. Many which you would not have seen if you didn’t Look Up. Many times in life we just need a new perspective and a reason to look at things in a new way. I think we get so busy looking at where we want to go we miss all that is around us. Op-sail provided us a … Read More Looking up…

Fathers of old and new

I was watching the Cosby show today and thinking of how the dads of past TV shows are much different then the ones on TV today. It’s hard to find fathers on TV  now that uses good humor to discipline his kids, teaches good advice, to follow the law, treat other’s as they wanted to be treated, and all that good stuff. It leads me to think of … Read More Fathers of old and new

Sunshine Award

I am so blessed. I was nominated for another award… the Sunshine Award. This one is especially cool as it’s symbol is a Gerber daisy – my favorite flower and my nickname from certain family member is Sunshine. So this is a perfect award for me (not that I didn’t also think then last one was amazing too). I would like to thank Eleelnie at http://denobears.wordpress.com/about/ forRead More Sunshine Award

Hanging it up… Coming Home

I’m hanging up the rope for the week… I have done enough tugging this week. Last weekend and our trip are starting to seem like a distant memory. This week was long and I only worked 4 days. The rope above is from one of the tall ships we got to tour. I still need to post about Op-Sail and all the things we saw. … Read More Hanging it up… Coming Home

Weekend Trip

When I was a little girl my parents use to take me on weekend trips. Since my husband works weekends we rarely get to do this. This past weekend we decided it was time so we both took off Monday (hubby had to take Saturday and Sunday too) and we drove to the beach. We stayed with my mom and her husband as it would … Read More Weekend Trip

Escape Artist

So we have yet to clip the girls wings and one of our ladies keeps jumping the fence and getting into the front flower beds.

Thankfully we are blessed with great neighbors who will put her back in the fence if we are not … Read More Escape Artist

Old yet not forgotten…

Found this old building that was built right over a stream. It seems it use to be a building, yet now the doors and walls on each end has been removed and it is used as a bridge. It got me to thinking of how we all too often throw out or stop using “old” things/buildings/etc. and instead build new when the old with a … Read More Old yet not forgotten…
