Do We Dare?

It is amazing how self-imposed lockdown can create such diverse thoughts from varied souls who also are spending hours encased in the confines of their limited physical environments. How’s that for a run-on sentence? My 9th grade English teacher would be splashing red ink all over my assignment if I had turned it in as… Continue reading Do We Dare?

A Door to an Empty House

This door appears not to be in use, but is waiting for its occupants to return and begin redecorating their home as spring arrives. This is my contribution to Norm’s Thursday Doors Photo Challenge where you will find lots of great door pictures.

Fingers to My Face

Hands to face. What is my obsession about putting my hands on my face? Am I checking to confirm my face hasn’t dropped off, disappearing from what I call the front of my head? Or reassuring myself my nose is still located where it was just minutes ago? What’s the deal with my need to… Continue reading Fingers to My Face

A Cupcake and a Candle

Today is my birthday and my watch was the first to send me a Happy Birthday message. I expect to get phone calls from my sister, from the kids, from some friends, and probably a lot of Happy Birthday wishes from people known and unknown on Facebook. I’ll be delighted to hear from all of… Continue reading A Cupcake and a Candle

Laziness Raises It’s Ugly Head

Self-isolation is tough on my ego. I currently have too much time to contemplate what I do or don’t do. I’m faced hourly with a list of  ‘shoulds’ weighed against ‘coulds’. Actually, it’s more than hourly, it’s closer to every 10 minutes. The silverware drawer needs organizing. Yep, but I need to drag out my… Continue reading Laziness Raises It’s Ugly Head

Weekly Smile

This guy brightened my day as I walked through Parque Juarez in San Miguel de Allende this week. Not only is he a perky addition to the park, but he is the retainer for plastic bottles and cartons. Brought a smile to my face. https://trentsworldblog.wordpress.com/2020/03/23/the-weekly-smile-for-the-23rd-of-march-2020-weeklysmile/

Chimes and Phones–Communication

In San Miguel de Allende communication comes in many ways: phones, internet, social media. But the  most fascinating are the church bells ringing throughout the city. The chimes call Catholics to service, mark the time of day, announce a wedding or a funeral, and they are a comforting sound reverberating to a distressed world. I… Continue reading Chimes and Phones–Communication

Bottle Flower and Butterflies–FOTD

It was quite a sight. A flower bush filled with Monarch butterflies, too many to count, although I tried. I stopped and began taking pictures from different angles, and want to share some of those shots as part of the Cee’s Flower of the Day Photo Challenge. https://ceenphotography.com/2020/03/21/fotd-march-22-tulips/
