The appearance of this vineyard has most likely changed since we drove by. It’s not a location that we drive to, very often. Although there are plenty of vineyards in the Willamette Valley. Joining Dawn Miller and others for Spring Festival week 4.
I am happy to join along on this Spring Festival 2022 challenge. Thank you Dawn Miller! Most of the photos I took today, were taken while on a morning drive out of town. It had been about a year since we were last in this location. This barn has a newer coat of paint. I am including the following image only because I had never see a Magnolia tree with yellow blossoms.
I like this photo that I took recently. I am trying to have a sense of humor right now, I wanted to use it in some manner. We are in the process of downsizing and that includes moving. It’s been eight years since our big move from California. So considering that I am soon to be eight years older, I understand why I am not as energetic.. I look forward to new and to change. And getting some rest..
As I looked at this photo, my immediate thought was “Boundaries.”
more love and respect, is what we need, kinder and giving is good indeed, setting boundaries to protect human life and those in the wild. God help me this New Year to see with new eyes, to be a better human as the days of my life fly by. grant me wisdom in all that i do and to make a difference, aligned with your point of view..r gould
Today we went to one of our favorite coffee shop’s for lunch. It is located in the town of Brownsville, Or. I was pleased to discover a charming little store next door, that has recently opened. The proprietor, Dana, gave me permission to take photos and of course I was thrilled.
Not 2 Shabbee is my kind of place.. A little mixture of this and that, with a lot of vintage charm and beautiful handmade items. Come along with me on this tour. It will only take a few minutes.
And just one more..
As you can see, Dana has a flair for decorating. It is so well put together. I sure hope you enjoyed the brief visit. I look forward to going back, when we are in the area. Thank you, Dana, for allowing me to browse with my camera. I wish you the best!
make my heart flutter
We woke up this morning to a slight covering of snow. It is always a thrill for me to watch snow-falling. I recently saw a picture of a frozen bubbles,so I prepared myself for the moment of hoping to capture a frozen bubble. It didn’t happen, but for that moment, I was like a kid, with snowflakes in my hair, blowing bubbles and trying to take pictures. The older I get, my gratitude for each day and each year increases. The simple things that I have taken for granted, have become so much more meaningful. I am often in awe of the grandeur of nature, in the kind face of a human, in the gentle tone of a caring individual, the miracle of an infant, and sweet endearing look from a furry friend. Unconditional love… May we enter the New Year with Hope planted in our hearts and continued prayer for a better tomorrow.
May God In His Wisdom
And Infinite Love,
Look Down on You Always
From Heaven Above
May He Send You Good Fortune,
Contentment & Peace
And May All Your Blessings

to follow this scattered brained
and I want to thank you..
i often feel like such a mess
because I no longer
can keep up, with the rest..
but i plug along
in my unhurried state of mind
knowing you will understand
