His owners thought it would be fun to dress up and explore the vacant mansion on the hill. 73/91 

or And they say humans reason better? I say their heads are vacant! 53/65

I eat hot dogs, not pose as one! 25/33

What are you going to dress as? Potato salad? 37/46

The Lovely and not so Lovely..

Saturday, October 26, 2013


Iridescent cloud 

Parking lot improvements

About friendship

Glorious sunset

My week has been loaded with lovely and not so lovely splashes of orange and I thought I would share some of them with you. The construction crew which have invaded our work area are not so "lovely" in fact they are downright messy, but I suppose it will look wonderful when they complete their work. Many of us were upset when they chopped down some of our wonderful trees that would grace our walk way into work. I especially miss my favorite golden rain tree. Then when they blocked off many of our streets, parking lots, and entrance ways into work, we began to like them even less...We have to leave for work earlier, walk further and do not even have the beautiful glimpses of the trees to calm our crazy days. 

But, as you can see, I found God's lovely handiwork elsewhere. Construction crews do not hinder our wonderful creator. He can make beauty anywhere, anytime!

Hanging his head in defeat he realized he wasn't keen on this activity. 59/72

or 

Since he wasn't keen on ball, he left his team in the field and hid out here. 61/78

Seeing he was not keen on swinging, Abri tried to cheer him on. 51/64

Crazy Lady six Floors up

Saturday, October 19, 2013






Hubby won some promo points which entitled us to a free night of hotel accommodations. I crossed my fingers and put in a request for the day off and got it. It was great; A get-away; no dishes; no work; just hubby and I...I oohed and ahhed all the way up at the awesome autumn colors but was unable to take photos from the highway, plus it rained the entire way up. Hubby was truly tired of my exclamations so we talked about other things. Friday morning the sun came out and I took a couple of shots from things in the room and out the window. He thinks I am a crazy lady. He's right; crazy about nature. The photo of the fire was taken at 10 p.m. so it came out poorly.

You are what you eat?

Sunday, October 6, 2013

Oh you silly little man 
Always eating yams 
Now you look like one! 
without spaces 53/
with 63

Grandma, (of Grandma's Goulash) I hope you continue to improve from your cataract surgery and thanks so much for hosting this fun challenge. The challenge called succinctly yours asks that we take Grandma's photo prompt and write a short short story of 140 characters/words or less. A bonus word is also supplied and this week it is yam. 

I haven't been blogging quite as much of late as I have been busy trying to set up my online shop. I sold two of my t-shirt dresses and gave away four. At the urging of my children/grandchildren I have decided to see if we can sell them online. The sewing is easy, it's the technical side of setting up the site that is so time consuming!! Abriele is wearing the latest...

T-shirt dress

I have been making clothes for the children since they were infants and feel that every child should have at least one item especially created just for them. After all they are each unique and deserve to have something that says something about their individual personality. One of my older granddaughters has been coming over on the weekends to help create. She loves to go home with the creations she helps make. :-)

Splashes of Orange

Thursday, October 3, 2013



Autumn colors create a charming background for my grandson as he lets grandma take a few snapshots of him to celebrate his senior year. 

Orange chokeberries

 



T-shirt dress

Last weekend I was thrilled to take my grandson to a few picturesque spots around town as we explored options for backgrounds for his upcoming senior photos. I also sold two of my t-shirt dresses and experimented with a few ideas while creating another one. Most days I have worked 8 am to 6 pm so my sewing project moves slower than I would like, so yes I can say I am glad it is Friday!! Aren't you?

Celebrating OYGIF!!

Thank you for your visit. Take care, stay healthy and God bless!!
