THANKFUL THURSDAY


Here we are again at Thankful Thursday.

I like finding a Positive Spin on Life as it is now.

My Hubby found this cute little Shelf Sitter at the Cracker Barrel Store

the other day.

Since my logo is Suzy Bee he thought it was perfect for me.

Now it sits proudly on the rack over my kitchen sink.

I'm thankful for my Honey and his thoughtfulness.




What are you Thankful for?

UMMM UMMM GOOD !


There is nothing like picking plums right from our own tree.

There is nothing like diving in and taking a huge bite of a choice plum.

Juicy and drippy but oh so tasty.










Slurp....

So good....

AND THE WINNER IS.....

And the winner is...

The letter "R"

For my photo club.




REARS...

Not the greatest photographically

but I think it will get the most giggles.

Have a good rest of your weekend.

THROWBACK THURSDAY


Today is Thursday...where is the week going?

This is also THANKFUL THURSDAY.

I thought I would post this photo from a few years ago.

It always tickles my funny bone.

I am thankful for a sense of humor.

My Hubby and I belong to a Faith-based photo club which now meets only on Zoom.

Our project for this week was to post a photo related to the letter R.

This is my choice.. ROOSTER....

This is probably a hen but I'm pleading ignorance...(:0)




Two other choices are:

RAILROAD crossing.....





or....

REARS.....




Which should I choose???

Inquiring minds want to know...

It's too bad I haven't been on a photo shoot in a while...

What to do?

I dive back into my archives and Whah La....

My post for Tuesday...




Puttering around with Patunias...




I see you...




I see you too...




Me too....

THE DAY AFTER


Yesterday we had such a wonderful day of celebration.

BBQ dinner at our oldest son, Steve's home was so yummy.

We missed our younger son and family being there but,

We got a phone call and all got to be a part of it.

The weather was hot ..100F ... so we stayed inside.

I am so grateful for these wonderful men in my life.




Our son Steve and his "new do"...

Or lack there of... (:0)




What Steve lacks on the top of his head...

Dave added to his chin.... (:0)

It was such a nice, lazy day.

HAPPY FATHER'S DAY

 I know this is one day early but i have the time so I might as well post it now.


I am thankful for the heritage I have in my life and I am also thankful for the heritage that comes from Dave's family.

All of these men were and are Godly people.

They are loving, kind, generous and I'm happy to call them MINE.




Our son Steve, my Honey Dave and our son Mark.




Dave's Dad in 1973.

Enjoying the latest Grandchild..Mark...




My Dad circa 1973...

Lots of years ago.

Oh how both Dad's would have enjoyed seeing their grandkids grow to adulthood.

WEDNESDAY WISDOM



This verse came up today for my morning devotions.

I thought it was perfect for this time in our lives.

So

I got one of my archived photos and added the verse.




Have a great day!

You will need to enlarge the photo to really read the scripture.

I didn't realize how small it was when I posted it,

Anyway...have a great day ...again...

GOD'S PROMISE


Some days my heart is hurting.

This week friends have lost loved ones.

My friend found out her 23 year old son has cancer.

Alzheimer's is slowly taking my dear friend.




Praying for the Peace that passes all understanding to fill ALL of our hearts.

FRIDAY FLASHBACK


A friend on FaceBook had nominated me to share 1 photo a day for 10 days.

The photo was to depict Being a Mom, with no explanation.

Here's what I posted yesterday.

I thought it was perfect for FlashBack Friday.





This is our younger son Mark at 6 weeks old.

It made me go Awww, when I got it out of the photo album.

That was 46 years ago.

I think we both look a tad different now !!

IT FINALLY ARRIVED !!


For the last 10 years I have made an annual Blog Book.

Its my way of journaling and having a hard copy for posterity.

I'm so happy with this company, their work, the quality and fair cost.

This is an unpaid endorsement for Blog2Print.

Hopefully our family will enjoy the books long after I'm gone.







3 weeks from downloading, ordering and receiving in the mail.

I'm a Happy Camper !!

FOR THE WEEKEND


I seem to be in quite a reflective mood lately.

The actions of our world bring all kinds of emotions to the front.

I seek peace for the Globe, it's People and for You and Me.





Here's to Peace this weekend.

THANKFUL THURSDAY


Here is my positive spin on our hurting world.

This is my Thankful Thursday contribution.

There is beauty even in the harshness of life.




Life may be prickly but it can also be the poke to do something different .....

Whatever that may be.








Sometimes we need to look deep within ourselves to find the Thankfulness we seek.


Don't forget to enlarge these photos to see the detail.

I NEED A LITTLE LEVITY


I think it's time to give my brain a break.

I need a bit of levity today.

Yesterday my Hubby came in the house to show me his New "DO"....

I definitely think its about time for a haircut !!

Hope things open up soon....

I laughed and said, we've got to have a photo of this.




This crazy guy helps put a smile on my face.

Love his Off the Wall sense of humor.

Dreads for this 78 year old guy... not too bad..EH ??

A smile during difficult times is good medicine.

PHOTO SCAVENGER HUNT DAY 2 & 3


Hi friends,

I decided to combine the last two challenges of the Photo Club I belong to.

The first was ...SILHOUETTE  ... See my previous Blog Post.

The next one... YOUR SHOES




These are my first shoes...my baby shoes.

It looks like I got a lot of wear from them.

I'm glad my Mom saved them.  It was fun looking through a box of my special baby clothes.


Last challenge in the photo scavenger hunt was WATER.





This drip or drop of water nourishes plants and the soil.


This photo hunt was lots of fun.

I hope to do one again sometime soon.

SILHOUETTE


This week I am working on another photo challenge.

It's a 3 "part-er"....

Here's my first of the three.




The definition of a silhouette is:

A dark shape against a light background.

This is the back of my little wooden cutout..she has a small hose for watering...

Which you can't see from this shot.

We bought her for our yard quite a few years ago because she had red hair like 2 of our granddaughters.

To be continued.

MEMORIAL DAY



Today is Memorial Day here in the U.S.A.

We honor all who served and gave their lives for our precious freedom.




I'm grateful for all my Father in Law did serving his country.






Never forget !!

FRIDAY FUN


A photography group that I belong to had a "Photo Scavenger Hunt" this week.

I thought I would show you the 3 things we were suppose to share.


# 1...The inside of our fridge...

        During this time of Stay At Home...Covid-19...the fridge keeps calling me....





#2...Motion

       I thought the soap track car race showed motion...with it's blur and action.






#3  Dark

     This one was a bit difficult for me but I had fun trying...




Enlarging the photos will show more detail.

Thanks for looking.

Have a great weekend.

THURSDAY THROWBACK


I have been culling some of my archived photos.

I really don't need 25 sunset photos when some aren't the greatest anyway.

I did find several that I haven't posted for a very long time.

So here are 2 for your viewing pleasure.




Here I am in Kenya visiting a Compassion site.

2009

The girls from one tribe entertained us with some dances.

Their clothes were so bright and colorful.

Two kids from the school wanted to hold my hands and never let go.

They were all so beautiful.  I wanted to take them all home.




Speaking of sunsets, I couldn't delete this one.

God's Masterpieces are painted across the sky daily.

Happy Thursday

Be Safe

Be Kind
