Put up my favorite picture of Mary/Child that always hung in my mother's bedroom.
This picture fascinated me and I would always be looking at it. Something so beautiful and simple..
Mary, as we were always told, was very young when she gave birth and this picture depicts it.
Sending love and blessings to all of you.
Have a wonderful Christmas and New Year. May this world find peace. But most of all, may we learn the meaning of "Love", because through that we will have "Peace".
Till next time, keep looking up.

Big Day Coming.

Beautiful sky and clouds..Waiting for the arrival of Christmas..A day of excitement and what would we do without it?
Thank you God for your beloved Son..And to think of all Mary/Joseph went through.
I know this, being in labor isn't one of my most comfortable moments..but think if you were riding on a donkey, no place to go and in labor.
Gives you something to think about, doesn't it?

Fingerprint Friday..Monhegan Island, ME..

Here is a beautiful fingerprint from God..Monhegan Island, Maine..It sits out in the ocean off the coast of Maine..many artist find it a great place to paint from and have classes there in the summer..You know what I find interesting? See the little shack there on the island off Monhegan..
Well, the story goes a man from NYC left all his wealth and moved there. He was called the "Hermit" of Mohegan Island. I really have to get the film about him , it is worth watching.
This man had it all or should I say, what people think is "all". Money/success. Yet, he gave it up and lived a very simple life in a shack.
I remember reading once, the lobstermen on this island will not go out, if one lobsterman is sick.
They start their season on New Years, but together.
Isn't this an interesting Fingerprint from God?

I'm Back.

This is just an update till I get going again..Had trouble with thyroid acting up..not a fun time.
If anyone is taking Armour Thyroid medicine and finding they are having trouble..they messed with their product. It put me down for the count..took awhile, but I didn't realize that was the problem from spring off and on into summer..till fall..
Waiting on bloodwork results..So if anyone is on Armour and having trouble..please check with your doctor. They reformulated their product last spring and no one knew about it..Neat..
Something that is over 100 years old..did good all those why did they mess with it?
Makes one wonder. This is a natural product..pharma can't make money on it..but from reports I read FDA going after it and because of pharma..Was on synthroid and had rashes/ulcers/bloat..Please pay close attention to what goes in your mouth and what they prescribe for you..Be your own judge. I have seen too many mistakes in my life by people that trust in someone else to be watching their health..
I could write a book on it..won't bore you..Just a warning..Know your body and watch what is prescribed.

Till next time, keep looking up.

Shadow Shot Sunday..

I caught the shadows in the yard.

The house shadow was kind of neat on the ground, then the other day, house shadow is in the trees..

The last shot is in Portland, from hospital. While waiting for daughter to give birth and getting nervous, took camera out and started taking pictures (Baby/mother doing fine, little girl).

Notice the first picture. We had snow..melted now.

Woke up this morning and there it was. Should be gone by this afternoon and I will be happy.

You can't like everything in life, but you can always be thankful. So here is our Fingerprint from God..Make sure you visit Pampering Beki's blog for other wonderful fingerprints.

Today, I was going around the yard and took a few pictures for Fingerprint Friday.
The trees and sky are always my favorite.

Our Old Shed

Husband is trying to save the shed on our property. You know, this shed has such a cute look.
The size of the windows tell me, it wasn't just a shed. We hope to put new windows in. It has two rooms inside, seperated and in the center, looks like a bathroom spot. Very interesting.
In later years, someone used it for chickens, I think..but that is not what it was. Maybe we will find a buried treasure here..ha, ha..
Anyway, the project is started. Won't finish till next year. Will make it a cottage..and cute it will be.
Till next time, keep looking up.

Shadow Shot Sunday..

I have to admit..had a very tough time with shadows, this week.
First one, is from the Halloween lights over my sink. Second, is coming in the den, through the Indian shutters and the last is from the window on the rug. It is an odd one, the rug is a nice green and came out b/w.
Hasn't been the greatest day for shadows. Rain, rain and more rain. Guess I should be quiet, it could be snow.
Visit Hey Harriet's blog, for more shadows shots.

Fingerprint Friday.

I am using some of our grandchildren for Fingerprint Friday.
This is at a baby shower for our youngest daughter. Just look at the young nieces/nephews right into it. They all gave something from themselves to her..It was beautiful. I am not sure who was more excited, daughter/grandchildren.
You know, this is a special fingerprint to me. It shows all the love we share and what is important in life. I can't stress this enough, it isn't "things"..they are a temporary fix. Pure love lasts through everything and that is what is important through all our trying times in life.
So this Fingerprint Friday, I send you all "Love", the secret to life. Peace/Happiness always follow.

Shadow Shot Sunday.

The shadow of the clouds/bushes made a nice shot, in the morning. Then the sun hitting the curtains in the living room..and last, a light reflection on the ceiling in my studio. Did a little different this week.
Be sure to visit Hey Harriet's blog and check out other shadow shots. Who would have thought, looking for shadows could be so much fun? Thanks Hey Harriet.
