THANKFUL


At this time of year we are reminded to be thankful.

I am so thankful for many things.

I am thankful for my husband of 54 years this coming January 31st.




I am also thankful for amazing colors the Lord has painted in His creation.

First the earth was washed and the trees gladly soaked in the rain.






Then the sun came out and showed off His handiwork.











BE THANKFUL

A FEW MORE PHOTOS FROM MY BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION


Here are a few more shots from Lake Tahoe.

My Hubby and I enjoyed a few days away

celebrating my birthday.




Sand Harbor State Park, Nevada is an amazing place.

The water was so clear and the air was crisp and invigorating.

6500 Feet with the temps this day at 40F.





Please enlarge the photo to get the 3D effect.





We came home to an amazing sunset at Apple Hill.




I'm all for dragging out my birthday just as long as I can.

Free breakfast to celebrate.

Sometimes it's worth getting older!!

Yummy....but those pancakes were the size of my head...groan but so good.

BACK TO REALITY


I had a wonderful time away for my birthday.

Even with the 24 hour flu it was great.

We went to my Soul Easing....Heart Refreshing...favorite location...

Lake Tahoe.













This place is perfect Eye-Candy

Even if we don't know how to take good "Selfies".

Thanks for looking.

BEAUTIFUL WEEKEND


Hubby and I just couldn't stay in the house on such a warm and pretty Saturday.

After a few errands we stopped at our local park called Quarry Park.

The geese were sunning themselves and posed so nicely for us.




I know it's strange but in search of some colorful trees,

we headed to the Roseville Cemetery.

No changing trees but I did find a few good headstones and angels.

I just had to post this one.




Butt I just don't know what to say....about it......

FALL IS DEFINITELY FALLING


Last week the trees were mostly full of leaves and not much color.

This week most of the color is on the ground...

Leaving a lot of bare limbs.







A splash of color here and there.

7 DAYS...B&W...NO PEOPLE....NO EXPLANATION

These are my choices for a 7 day Meme on Facebook.

7 days of Black and White...No People...No Explanation...























I may change my mind on a few of these.

They didn't reproduce too well.

Enlarging them does help sharpen them up a bit.

To be continued.....

LAST NIGHT'S SUNSET


Hubby and I went up to our favorite grassy knoll last night.

We thought the sunset would be pretty good, with all the smoke in the air.

That was a right idea.
















Each of these pictures was taken 1 minute apart.

Such beautiful drama in 5 minutes time.

Of course, as always, enlarging each shot will show more detail.

TODAY IS A NEW DAY


My heart is heavy because of all the horrific tragedy going on

in my corner of the world.

But

Today is a new day.

Forward looking....

YESTERDAY'S MURKY SKIES


California is up in flames.

We are safe but just within an hours drive from us

people have lost their homes.

Devastation for so many.

The skies yesterday were filled with smoke and ash.

Everything was turned a strange reddish tinge with no blue sky in sight.




Our fence is a dark gray.

The shadows on it and the tree show how eerie the sunlight was.

We are praying for all and especially our friends that are in harms way.

We have a new Daughter in Law, and we are so very happy.

Here are a few photos from this weekend's wedding.








Nothing like having your names up in lights for all to see.





The happy couple.




Our hearts are full.

WEATHER DIDN'T HAPPEN


The clouds this afternoon looked like a storm was really brewing.





Nothing happened...

The clouds cleared.




At least the scene gave me a chance to do a little sky gazing.

WHERE'S IT HEADED?


This is a creeping shoot from our grape vines.

Its headed right for our lawn...across the pebble walkway.

Crazy plant

Doesn't it know that it doesn't belong there?




Enlarging it will show more detail.

WEEKEND ADVENTURE


This weekend was our City's annual Hot Chili and Cool Cars event.

Here are several cars we enjoyed looking at.




Vintage chop job.

Enlarge it to see the detail.




Elvis lives on....




They say rust and grunge add to the mystic.


It was a fun time and we walked our legs off.

ODDS AND ENDS


I meant to post this photo yesterday but somehow forgot.




In light of yesterday being 9-11 I wanted to again say thank you to all the Firemen

and first responders that both gave their lives and saved so many too.

THANK YOU

RAIN ???


While at the High Hand Nursery a few weeks ago we saw this interesting shade treatment.

This is my Hubby's photo.

It turned out far better than mine.




A different view since I'm shorter than my Hubby.








Enlarging the photos will show more detail.

I thought this was a clever way to have some shade.
