Saturday, June 2, 2012


I started to blog more then a year ago and it has been fun. I heard from some of our friends and family that they enjoyed reading this or that but I think I really mainly do it for myself. It can be a reflection, a meditation, or/and aaahhh the memories. It might even be helpful like the last one for my fellow Block Lotto quilters.Who knows?
I also am reading other bloggers' blogs and enjoying them immensely ... but none so much as my girls' blogs. Sarah started the River City Wallers November 2011, well really March 2012 and Helen just recently Off The Wahl Tales. Boy, can I learn from them. Love, love reading theirs. Of course in the future you could find both links on my reading list on the right.

Well, Helen just blogged about a challenge she found. It is soooooooooo tempting:

Here is the link to the Photo-A-Day-June


June 1. Morning

I know that I will not be able to do the whole month but only the first few days ... so 3 photos on one day should be allowed. Haha who will stop me anyway.

When time allows we like to have an early cup of tea in bed with the news. Schatzi was visiting overnight. She didn't care about the news.

When William was visiting, he liked to snuggle up with us too.

When I arrived in Nashville last time, the place had just been burglarized a few days earlier. Silvi was kind enough to spend the night with me to protect me. This look in the morning: time to get up and go for a walk!

June 2. Empty

Yup, empty. This morning's early cup of tea. Notice the cup. My mummy cup. James has a daddy cup like it. Fine bone china bought in Windsor, England (James' hometown). Tea tastes better. Really!

June 3. On your plate

Haha, on the plate is the spaghetti squash which I forgot to cook for dinner tonight. Forgot! Daughter Sarah and husband came for dinner. We had steaks and grilled veggies and a very lovely salad. James was doing the steaks and said "Almost done. What about the spaghetti squash?"  ...  Ups.

June 4. Close-up.

Getting brave in my old age ... but just felt like it. Why red? Why pink? I like my green toes!

June 5. Sign

This was at a fast-food drive-through. James is 6' 4" but I don't think even he needed that warning. Head?
