a NEW winter weather photo challenge

winterweathercollage

Happy Friday! Here’s what the weather is like in my neck of the woods.  Snowy and cold! Thanks to Nancy’s Weekly Challenge I picked up my camera and took these photos.  Having the push to get out there and shoot is really why I started this blog in the first place – all those many years ago.  Although I’ve been out of the habit of posting lately, I hope to redeem myself – and get my photographic fix at the same time.

Have a great weekend everyone! Do or learn something NEW!

ps. If you can’t tell what that third photo is all about, it’s ice in between the spaces in my door mat on my front porch. :o)

Miscellaneous Monday…NEW stuff i gotta share

wintergate2

Happy Monday!

Do you recognize this little fence and gate?  It’s the same gate as my very favorite fall photo from last year…no, two years ago!  Apparently someone put the gate back on its hinges.  Artistically, I’m not sure I appreciate that! :o)

Also…speaking of hinges…I finally searched for a website that I was told had all of Jeanne P Lawler’s music on it.  Jeanne was a dear friend of our family.  She passed away a couple of years ago, but her music lives on!  {Here’s the website}  She wrote the music to the children’s song “Hinges“.  What an awesome lady she was!  I’m going to have to find the photo of her pulling up her pant legs to show off her crazy socks on our Alaskan cruise!  You’ll love it…(when I find it!)

Lastly…I had to share this reference guide for Quaker family history research at Ancestry.com.  Such good information!  I’ve got to get to work…my family history research has been lagging lately.

Have a great day!  Do or Learn something NEW!
