The Week In Seven Photos

As the days whiz by leaving one at a momentary loss trying to remember what day or month is upon us, it’s necessary some days to check nature’s calendar to verify that we’re actually in the middle of September. Caramel apples and cider are a surefire sign it’s September along with the squirrels stockpiling their…

Over my lifetime I’ve always sent out those silent thoughts to the universe of how about a peaceful week and now have realized in middle age a stronger message is sometimes needed. Having that coffee mug reminder helps when you immediately begin your day encountering obstacles and one can hope the first thought will be…

It’s one of those weeks where I’m just going to ramble for a bit since I failed to take any photos other than this shot of the Mom’s Pantry Flashback puzzle my niece put together. I suppose I could have done a photo flashback feature of summer highlights, but I’m honestly too jaded to experience…

Trust me when I tell you that when I began this series I never envisioned a pair of Crocs being the feature image of the week after years of making fun of the them (ok, it was downright ridicule). I was amazed when my niece told me she was ordering pair of Crocs after hearing…

I’ve realized after the last few weeks that our wonderful parks need to add signs for some trail walkers. The first new sign should say Caution Muddy Path May Be Very Slippery And Cause Some To Slip and Do The Splits. It’s amazing when you constantly become distracted by slick mud how easy it is…

Yep, I’m one of those people that could be called an interrupter or someone who just in the excitement of the moment loves joining your conversation. Occasionally you meet someone who doesn’t appreciate this charming quality, but I’ve never quite understood that automatic look of irritation or immediate righteous indignation that can occur when I…
