Pictorial Friday Blog Hop Sept 16

Learn to be quiet enough to hear the genuine within yourself, so that you can hear it in others.

Today I am linking to the Friday Blog Hop with Peabea. I especially like the scripture that she is sharing today. If you have time, stop by to say “hello!”

 I had this photo in mind this morning, as I am back to work, two days a week with little one’s. I find that I am not too old, to learn something new.. But my body needs the rest of the week to recuperate… lol!

May God bless the little children with a safe and healthy school year~

Girl With a Straw Hat

I decided to use one of Kim Klassen’s textures, that she provided for those of us, that joined her for Texture Tuesday’s. I had almost forgotten, about how much I enjoy using texture with my photos. I drift off into this creative mode and find it very relaxing and therapeutic as well. I will have to incorporate this back into my weekly photography regime, once again.

It’s a Bees Life

DSCN9367-007

After several months of going back and forth to Portland, we have been content to stay at home. We tend to our small garden and I have really enjoyed getting to eat a cucumber everyday.

DSCN9356 Our bees are doing well and their activity keeps us entertained. We have been watching Little League finals in Williamsport, PA. The Mother Hen in me watches every little facial expression of joy, sadness, and the tears of disappointment. It pulls at my heartstrings as I observe them.  I hope that they are never told, that boys or men are not supposed to cry.  I cheer them on, in the sidelines of our living room. The team from Lewisberg, PA is quite impressive, as well as others, but I give them all a high-five for putting their hearts into what they have a passion for.
