Red zinnias make themselves known. Their pop of color rises above all the others…
Even when photobombed by an adventurous butterfly…
One Word Sunday: Night
The last time I was able to visit my family in Washington DC was this past February. Four days with my daughter, son-in-law and grandson. A dinner out with my son. Memories made.
It was right before the pandemic exploded onto the scene here in the United States.
Little did I know on this beautiful moonlit night that I wouldn’t be able to see my kids again for many months to come.
This pair of three year old feet were two of a silly kind during a memorable FaceTime moment last year.
First…one bare foot appeared and propped itself up on the table…then disappeared at Mama’s gentle request…
Seconds later, it returned when mama looked away.
Then back in a flash.
Grandma (me) started giggling.
Then foot number 2 joined the fun.
Mama gave up.
And…as we all know…laughter is contagious.
Thanks to the kindness of dear “old” friends, I enjoyed this view across Lake Champlain last year. I was treated to a peek at the Adirondack Mountains of New York while waiting for a sunset one evening…during a relaxing weekend visit at their summer home in Vermont.
Hopefully next summer it will be safe to return.
One Word Sunday: Three
Apples Hanging Out
I wondered if these apples were destined for an afternoon snack.
Or apple crisp.
Or even applesauce.
They looked so cozy, I let them be.
One Word Sunday: Fruit
When an apple began to do more than just keep the doctor away…
It gave a platform to one of the most memorable sing-along songs ever:
Backed by an equally memorable song as well…
…don’t you know it’s gonna be…alright!
One Word Sunday: Nosy
Life with a 2 year old provides a perfect opportunity for Supreme Silliness. One of the many benefits of parenthood.
This image from 36 (!) years ago popped into my mind when I saw the topic for this week’s challenge. It took a while to locate…and the print quality isn’t the greatest…but it’s proof positive that Groucho nose glasses never made anybody grouchy in our house!
Happy Sunday Everyone!
BeckyB JulySquares: Perspectives
It was a hot day last September when I parked the car in the state beach lot – looking forward to a nice long walk along the sand. I stopped for a moment next to the restrooms and glanced toward the beach.
Except where was the beach exactly? At first glance, I was reminded of Maria at the opening of “The Sound of Music.” The hills are alive and all that.
Thankfully, in my case, these hills weren’t those kind of hills…but alive all the same, as they were roped off to protect the endangered Piping Plover population.
Fortunately, a sandy walking path – a short walk to the ocean – was just around the corner.
