The Week in Review

Facebook is taunting me this week with memories of past vacations. I took the above photo five years ago on a trip to Big Bend National Park from inside the Chisos Mountain Lodge. We were having breakfast on our last morning there. That day we drove all the way from Big Bend (near the Mexico... Continue Reading →

The Week in Review

I always look forward to Fridays. The end of the week, the start of the upcoming weekend. However, I hate to see this week wrap up. Why? I've been on vacation. My husband and I have spent the past three days in a cabin near Broken Bow, Oklahoma. Not our fanciest vacation and certainly not... Continue Reading →

The Week In Review

Hello, readers. It's Friday, and that means it's time for the weekly wrap up. I promised myself that I would show a new photo this week. But as it is I've only taken pictures of my cats.  Nothing wrong with showing cat pictures, but I can't show one cat without showing the other. This is... Continue Reading →

The Week in Review

Last week I promised myself I would share a new photo but guess what? It didn't happen.

I want to thank you all for bearing with me while I took an unplanned blogging break during the month of December. For me a new year brings new excitement and... Continue Reading →

Something About October

There is something about October. If I had to pick a favorite month, it’s this one. Autumn is my favorite season and October is the month when the weather begins to feel like fall in Texas. It’s a time for fall festivals, pumpkins, and scarecrows. Goldenrods, chrysanthemums, and spider lilies bloom. Trees change into beautiful... Continue Reading →

A Hunter’s Moon

I like to dabble in photography and this time of year usually finds me outside at dusk with my camera, waiting for the full moon to rise. Four cameras, several years, and hundreds of photos later, I’m still waiting for the “perfect” shot. Why such a fascination with the moon? Honestly, I don’t know, but... Continue Reading →
