The Pain Of It All, June 13, 2021

Our June has been shaping up to be very beautiful so far and had record heat waves already as well.  Everyone is saying how their flowering shrubs and bushes seem to be very amazing this year.  Hopefully the trees that reward with fruits are bountiful as well.

A short update on my daughter who I have with me for a few weeks helping to take care of her after she had triple jaw surgery.  It will be a week tomorrow since her surgery and we have decided today, `she will live`. ...


June in Canada, June 6, 2021

I’ve recently started following hockey, it has been many years since I’ve taken any interest and having ‘my team’ in the playoffs is definitely worth watching! I found this jersey in my closet that was purchased for my son many years ago.

The flowers are blooming the leaves have popped out and...

Blooming Season, May 16, 2021

We have had some very nice weather this weekend, sun has been bright, flowers are blooming.  Above are my phlox minus the grass that likes to grow in it.  Outside work keeps me busy this time of year and I`m sure you as well.

Today has been a strange day for me.  I needed to go digging for pictures.  Anyone who knows me, knows I love taking photos and I take a lot!  I meticulously save them by year on my external hard drive so I will have them forever!  How...
