This is the original of Midge, my oldest (15). It’s one of those not very good blurry photos but I think it looks cool as the charcoal drawing!Midge_Fotor

iPhriday – Pretty in Pink!

iPhriday is a day to share photos you have taken with your cell phone.

I ran across this photo challenge on another blog I follow and it looks like fun so I thought I’d participate with some new hibiscus in our yard this morning!

We Interrupt the Moving Saga for a Brief Announcement…

I knew it was bound to happen. Everyone said it would. I tried to ignore the warning signs. But, omigosh, now what?

IT SNOWED!!

So it’s pretty. And how many of you are out there laughing because you’re buried under several feet of snow at the moment wishing this was all the snow you had. Well, it’s the first snow I’ve had to contend with in 30 years. And since this is the first, I’m sure there will be more. At least by Monday, the temperature is supposed to be up around 50 again. YAY! And, yes, I still miss Florida. That’s our downhill driveway behind the tree that we can’t get down at the moment because it’s too steep and too slippery. And we have no winter clothes. It’s on our list. Okay, we have some light jackets and we each have a sweater. We do have a couple of sweatshirts.Even when I lived in cold climates, I never liked bundling up. Oh, well. Gripe, gripe, moan, complain. Okay, I’m done. The bright side is we get to go shopping (when it warms up) and start acquiring winter clothing.

Here’s a couple more views from our porch.

Well, I’m sitting here at my new desk looking out my window onto a very similar scene. We know there are deer up here. I’ve only seen their tails as they bounded down a hill. But I have high hopes that one of these days I’ll be able to capture a photo. I will say I do believe that when spring arrives, it will be beautiful around here with all of the plant life. We’re looking forward to trying our hand at a small garden.

In the meantime, I’ll just stay inside my toasty little house and be content looking out the windows. I’ll be posting a bit more on the actual move-in shortly.
