As a new blogger, I have so much to learn. I have taken one course on blogging and am currently going through everything I can find about writing on the web.

My yard is alive with blossoms! So I went around and took photos of them. They are all so beautiful, but the only way to keep them is take a picture. So sad, but they have a very short life.

Photographs! Boxes and boxes of photographs; and old albums too, what to do with all those photographs; years of picture taking, kids, family members, campsites, road trips, events, Christmases, summer fun, snow, rain, swimming….on and on; photographs chronicling our lives. I have been working on putting together a history of our family; writing down stories… Read More PHOTOGRAPHS!!!
It looks like winter is finally over here in California. Temperatures are in the mid 70’s, it is cloudy with lots of sunshine; and windy at times.

We are entering mid-April and it seems that most of the storms have passed. Temperatures are approaching the 70’s and the sky is a deep blue. Beautiful!

Today is another day of plans and anticipation for our fast approaching trip to England. My sister is on her computer, busily purchasing tickets for some of the sights we are planning to see. We have three months and two and a half weeks until takeoff, but the time is passing fairly quickly. There are… Read More PLANS AND ANTICIPATION
Have you ever thought about how much of our world is invisible? We take our world at face value so much that we barely recognize that there is a huge portion of our world that is invisible. This invisible world, when it exerts itself, can result in wrong conclusions. During the middle ages people were… Read More ACKNOWLEDGING THE INVISIBLE
I woke up this morning hoping for another beautiful sunny day, but alas…clouds are coming in. The sun did start to shine about 9am., but it’s a bit weak and I can see those clouds pushing their way in. This past weekend was so nice; sunny, warm and perfect for working in the yard. California… Read More SUNSHINE OR RAIN?
We are at that time of year where you never know what to wear when you go outside! Stand in the sunlight and it’s spring with a touch of summer; but stand in the shade and it’s still winter!
