Friday Favorites; Photos

First off, here on Friday, I would like to send out a great big Thank You for all of my new followers;

as well as all of those who have been here for quite a long time.

Just this week I noticed that the followers number went over 300!

Exciting!

My hope is that I can make some small difference for you in the heart you live with.

This view never gets old.

30 years, and I still feel so blessed.

Even in town, the beauty is stunning.

Be well.

Be blessed.

Until next time…

The Grumpy Guardian

Just the other day I was putzing around in the driveway, waiting for my ride.

I was noting the really cool texture on one of the trees that faces our driveway.

I quickly snapped a photo, and walked away.

Looking at it later, I saw him – the one I’ll call the Grumpy Guardian.

He’s been guarding our driveway all this time without our knowledge.

A little over 30 years!

He really made my day!

Perhaps he needs a Christmas hat?

Hope he made you smile!

Until next time.

New Toys

Recently, my Original Grandson, told me about a new app.

This app helps you to take a quick little video, every day.

At the end of 30 days, this app turns your little videos into one long one.

IF, you read all of the instructions.

I would have saved MUCH time if I had read them first.

But after all my fussing, here is the result.

Well … A little more than a week.

I could think of no better week to have this tool than this one.

Have a look at that tree!

After some practice, it will be better.

Promise.

See you next time.

Oh, and here’s a link for 1 Second Everyday – https://1se.co/

“Help Mate?”

Greetings!

I had a neat idea for today’s post,

but after finally getting up and getting around,

My plans were changed.

So here is the story, and the result of that change.

For the first 20 years of living here, we heated our home with wood.

It was so efficient, you could say we overheated it.

We heated our entire home with a wood stove like this one.

Over the past ten years or so, the labor has become to intensive for us to handle keeping it going.

So this year, it will go to our nephew in Missouri when we visit for a family gathering.

Of course it had to be uninstalled, which means that someone has to go up on the roof, and disengage the stove pipe, and squirrel cage, and the venting.

My husband has some usual suspects that he calls for these things.

Some were in the field.

Some were out of town.

Some were simply unavailable.

When I hear the call, “Help Mate?” I know that something I don’t want to do will surely follow.

Something loud. Something heavy. Something hard.

On this occasion – Something was UP!

Let me state very clearly – I do not do UP.

Until today.

Knowing that I would likely never have this opportunity again;

Here are the photos I took from a place called – UP.

Again, I don’t do UP, so the photos are not real high quality,

but they are real.

It truthfully wasn’t so bad after the initial shock of it.

But my feet are on the ground now.

And hopefully, they will stay there.

Until next time …
