This rock belonged to my mom, my dad’s mom, her mom, her mother, her mother, and some day it will belong to my daughter.
My mind went immediately to freshly washed sheets hanging on a line, I knew that was not happening around here with all the rain we have been having. I decided to take a walk around the yard.
I found fresh buds
I wandered over to the barn
I found these fuses and it reminded that we need to remember to take the time to put in those fresh fuses from time to time. For me it is my camera in my hand, capturing God’s beauty all around me.
So, today, lets all remember, take the time and the care for yourself to put in those fresh fuses. It will make us better mommies. wives, employees, or what ever the task at hand is.
Half full? Half empty?
My wonderful husband offered yesterday to take me on a picture taking drive. I have just been released (since my elbow surgery) to pick up my camera again. (I did have to sneak a few pictures before the release, 8 weeks is just too long). I also just got a new camera, my first DSLR, my husband knew with out me asking, I needed this day. He patiently chauffeured me half way across the state, just so I could get my camera fix. Never complaining, pointing out views. This is just one example of how he shows his love to me. He knows me so well.
So my glass is neither half full or half empty, it is FULL.
It is running over
Sunday’s Creative prompt was Crane -please read this post for more information surrounding this movement.
When I am feeling beat up or wounded by my work life, I am often reminded about the people in Japan. It puts everything in perspective.
We need to continue to pray for their recovery.
The symbol in this picture is one of their symbols for hope. It represents expectation, anticipation and hope.
Definition…adj: streaked or mixed with grey
I could not decide between the two for the Sunday Creative Challenge so I am including both –
The house made me a bit sad, but mostly wondering what happened? Why did this family just walk away? It looks as though some one was in the middle of making a pie, there were dishes still in a dish drainer. Everything was covered with years of dust. It was a strange feeling wandering through this old farm house.
Nostalgia: n. a wistful yearning for something past or irrecoverable
Grandma’s Tea Cups
I use to visit my grandma’s house every summer. I remember her living room was lined with shelves that were covered with tea cups, and sugar & creamer sets from everywhere around the world. They were irresistible to my two brothers and I. We touched when we should not have, several sets did not survive our growing up years. My grandmother is 97 years old now, my mother has passed, so I am the keeper of what is left of the collection.
This is one of my favorite sets, a sugar and creamer set.
I am finally getting around to posting the Sunday Creative.
Timeworn (literally worn by time)
This old truck resides in the barn next to our house. It is timeworn, inside and out. Some days I feel like this old truck, timeworn. I have this arm thing, tendinitis, in my right arm. I am so right handed, I am not even sure my body know the left hand is there most of the time. The one thing that aggravates it the most is what I love doing the most, photography. The days that I am aching most, are the days I feel timeworn. I have been through PT, 15 weeks of it, not too much change. The next step could be surgery, I am not sure about that.
Most days though I feel alive, not timeworn, but younger than my 52 years. I am happy in my life. I imagine that this time worn truck had a happy productive life, and now sits happily timeworn.
This is my picture for this weeks Sunday Creative. Of course today would be overcast, I waited most of the day to get a good “sun” shot, and this was all the sun we got today. While I love watching the weather move across our sky, I had other pictures in my head for this prompt. It was not to be, but I enjoyed the process today, even if I did not get the shot I wanted.
Have a great week everyone –
🙂 – Bev
