  I don’t really know where the time has gone – but I have been enjoying this beautiful spring – we haven’t had to run the airconditioner much or the heat much so the bills have been really really low. I don’t ever remember them being this low – but believe me I’m not complaining. […]

Dreary week

It has been a cool, wet, dreary week – I was supposed to go to water aerobics this morning, but I couldn’t seem to get up the gumption to go. Yesterday I slept until 2:00 PM so needless to say I didn’t get much done then either. I have managed to get out and work […]

365 Progress Report

I’ve actually been out and taking pictures. Going out for a walk later today and take some more. Found my close-up lenses which is wonderful as I thought they were lost forever. Had a horrid scare yesterday – I was getting multiple error messages from my camera so I took it to Best Buys thinking […]

Books for March and April

I can’t believe I have let April get all the way past and not posted the books for March. April has been so cold and windy and rainy we just kind of thought of it as an extension of March – LOL. The only good thing about the month was my Azalea bush which instead […]

Summer finally arrived!!

Well, maybe it is Indian Summer – but today is the most gorgeous day we’ve had in Months!! It wasn’t humid, it wasn’t horridly hot, it was really perfect – hopefully tomorrow will be nice for our family get together, but I’m taking what I can get here. We went out to the fall festival […]

Is Spring really coming!!??

It’s been a long hard cold icy winter – I’ve been ready for Spring since November 1st – I really wanted a do-over for last year it was so horrible – but we only pass this way once – so I get a new chance every morning. But last Saturday morning I saw my first […]

Countdown to Christmas Part III

Well here it is this much closer to the holiday and I haven’t had a migraine yet!! That is wonderful news – it means my new approach to preparing for the holiday is working. What am I doing different this year you might ask? Well I’m not getting all upset about it for one thing. […]

Pumpkin Thinking

Posted: Friday, November 21st, 2008 @ 12:12 pm in Maiden's Garden, World of Holidays, World of Photography | No Comments »

When I think of Autumn, one of the first things that comes to mind – after colored leaves – is pumpkins. Pumpkins in the field in September, Jack-o-Lantern in October and Pumpkin Pies for Thanksgiving. Pumpkins are believed to have originated in North America. Seeds found in Mexico were dated to between 7,000 and 5500 […]

Maybe Sunshine – Then again??

It has been a wild and wooly few days around here. Over the weekend we were hit by the remnents of Ike. The rains started Friday night when a front from the Pacific collided with the leading edge of Ik’s system. It rained – and it rained – and then it rained some more. Now […]

SUNSHINE!!

It has been a bit more eventful around here the last couple of days. Friday I actually broke over and went to the movies. I wanted to see “Get Smart” but it didn’t start until 6:45 PM and as it was only 11:45 AM, I wasn’t going to hang around and wait for it to […]
