Good Grief!

I nearly forgot to post a picture of my lovely new Scottie quilt! This isn’t the greatest picture, as it is so hard to get a picture of the bed. The wall at the end of the bed has a steep slope, so tis a bit tough. The big pillow behind the little Scottie shaped pillow was hand-crafted for me by a soap-maker. We had a gift exchange one May, and my person made a custom pillow with an embroidered Scottie on it! The little Scottie pillow is one Ben won in one of those “claw”

machines. He had walked into a grocery store, and spotted the Scottie….he just HAD to win it for Mom…he spent $2.00, but walked out grinning from ear to ear as he handed it to me!

This its the time of the year when the days begin to come to an end earlier and earlier…I treasure these shorter days when I can go to my little “refuge” and just enjoy the glow of a pretty candle lighting the room.

And so, from my little refuge to yours, have a good evening!


I had a little fun this morning, playing with the camera, taking some more bee pictures! The camera that I am using is an Olympus C-5050. I have had this camera for nearly 3 years, but am just now beginning to figure our all the bells and whistles. It is a rather complex little bugger, and later this afternoon, Mark and I were playing with it, and Mark found some really cool features. He had read through part of the manual, so he knows a lot more than I do!

On my way down the porch to take the bee pics, I passed my hanging Fuschia plant. The way the sun was shining on it, the plant looked almost fluorescent!

Well, it is *almost” Friday…hurrah! This week seems to have flown by. Seems like that happens a lot this time of the year!
