NEW photos far from the desert

I’m obsessed with photos that have a water element.  Probably because I live in the high desert.  My recent trip to New England gave me lots of chances for water photography and/or places near water.  Here are a few pics from oceanside locales.peilighthouse (1)

Miscellaneous Monday and NEW stuff i gotta share

Happy Monday!

Boy, has life been busy! Unfortunately, this little blog is one of the first things to get neglected when that happens.

So, here’s an update and a bit of miscellany:

I’ve crossed off a couple of waterfalls on my “100 Waterfalls Bucket-list“.  We took a trip to New York and while we were there, we visited Talcott Falls and Pixley Falls. We also visited Niagara Falls again (I assume it wouldn’t be fair to count those falls again)! And this last weekend we hiked to Stewart Falls, here in Utah.

We also visited a few lighthouses.  Here’s a favorite B/W photo of one of them:

I hosted my book club last month and wanted to try a grazing table.  It was so, so, SO easy! But it made an impression!  Here’s what we had:

The ladies in our group don’t eat a whole lot, but with this idea, all I had to do with the left-overs was load all of the snacks back in containers and my family had snacks for the rest of the week month!

The book we discussed was Educated by Tara Westover.  It’s a GOOD discussion book!  Other books I’ve read (or listened to lately) are:

 

That seems like a lot of reading to get done, especially since I mentioned I’ve been so busy, but it’s been a few months since I’ve done a Miscellaneous Monday! AND, I think most have been listened to in the car on my commutes! Gotta love multi-tasking!

OK! That’s about it for this week. I’ve gotta go do some gardening.  Yes, my flower gardens have also been neglected, and the vegetable garden is currently a weed patch!

Have a great day! Do or learn something NEW!
