Sometimes Editing Not Needed?

Sometimes weeds can make fun photos, and I just didn’t think editing was needed for these….chime in if you think different.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

And sometimes it does need editing.

Below is shared with Texture Tuesday (edited with kk_Wednesday and then overlayed with a photo of leaves for color)

Also sharing with Six Words Friday for the word NEVER on Friday October 25th..

Never misjudge a weed as ugly…Because there is Beauty with God’s…Plan for even the field weeds…The Tones of Color enhances them…And the heart perceives their Beauty…Look beyond the mind-set and Enjoy!!

Love From The Son

First Lilly 2014 for FL

After a divorce our son had to move back home for a bit. While here, he purchased bulbs and planted these Lilies. They have multiplied over the years and are getting so tall. Every Spring it is a delight to watch them finally open up to reveal their amazingly beautiful red color. He couldn’t have picked a better color as it is one of my favorites. That son has since remarried and moved to California, but my eyes love looking at him through these flowers each year. I miss him, but what a great reminder of the wonderful man (son) he has turned out to be. Such a loving heart.

I did transplant some of the bulbs early this Spring and was glad to see they have also made it and are blooming.

I ran an action from The Coffee Shop Blog called Coffee Shop Art Gallery, and used a free texture from Pixabay that Rita at the Coffee Shop also shared a link to on her site, and you can find the texture here http://pixabay.com/en/texture-artisan-acrylic-traditional-319740/.

The frame is one that comes loaded with Adobe Photoshop IE.

Lounging

Lounging-squirrel in tree

Or maybe he’s just resting after an afternoon romp up and down the electric wires, tree tops or house roofs. Whichever it may be, I was able to snap of picture of him when he flopped down on the branch of the tree and lay there quite a while. Then off he ran again.

California Surprise and Little Friend

Bird at Bodega Bay Textured

In March my wonderful daughter surprised me with a phone call asking if I would want to fly to California with her to visit her brother (my son) who moved there last Summer (she was paying). It was her son’s Spring break from grade school, and she had a week’s vacation. Neither of us had ever flown, and I was apprehensive before giving an answer because I’ve always swore I would never, ever fly on a plane. When young, I wasn’t afraid of heights, but over the years had become moreso. She was surprised when I said right away that I would go. She said she thought I would say no because of my fear of flying. I will admit the weeks leading up to the date we were to fly out, I was wondering what in the world am I doing. Will I have a panic attack? Will I not want to fly back home and then have to rent a car or something? Will I just have to call the hubby and tell him I cannot fly back so I’m staying indefinitely? 🙂

Reasons I said yes.

  • I knew that since it was her first time flying that as a mom there was no way I was letting her go alone even though she is 30 years old, and the grandson is 7. I would have worried too much about it. That was mainly my reason for saying yes.
  • My son’s daughter is the newest grand-daughter of just over one years old, and I hadn’t seen her since she was only a few months old.
  • After the frigid cold winter we’d just been through and having cabin fever, I was ready to go anywhere even if it meant taking a plane.

So, off we flew. It was thee most amazing thing, and I swore I’d never look out a plane window, but I did and it was awesome. And, hubby had to put up with me because I did make the flight back home.

California is beautiful and if I were younger, I think I would have no problem moving there. The little fellow in my photo was so obliging when my son took us to visit a Lighthouse. He just sat there as if posing for the few pictures that I took of him.

Friday Finds

Friday FindsI’ve always loved thrifting; especially now that we are retired and on limited budget. I’m getting really spoiled about even going to the mainstream stores anymore. Plus, I am sometimes amazed at what people get rid of, but than, I’ve gotten rid of some nice things myself. I use to try having a garage sale to eliminate things I no longer wanted, then I turned to eBay…some things I still try to sell, but mostly, I just donate to Goodwill or Salvation Army or to a Thrift Store.

I’ve been wanting to buy what they call a stock pot, but found they run anywhere from $40 on up. I’d only been thinking of getting one for the past few weeks, but I knew if I bided my time one would show up at the Thrift store. This week, it did. It’s just the right size, stainless steel, and even has the smaller insert. It will be more helpful with making spaghetti or even to use just for making soup.

I found it for $4 plus a couple more goodies. A small cute night-light, and a paper towel holder plus they had their books 4 for $1.00. I’m a reader as well as loving crafts and photos. I was a happy camper. I also found my son among the 4 for $1.00 books a larger family Bible. I can’t wait for him and his wife to receive it. I’m thinking I’ll just mail it for a surprise. They live in CA.

Love when I can get a bargain. 🙂

Happy Friday, Happy Thrifting, and Thanks a Bunch for stopping by ~

Until next time

Perseverance

Textured with Kim’s kk_happy heart at 20%

Such beautiful days so far this Fall, we are having. This time of year gets me in the mood for clearing out and cleaning up, and I really have to resist the urge to just pitch everything in this house instead. 🙂 It’s also the time of year that we find different insects trying to invade living space. Today was a day for moving out and sweeping behind all furniture, etc. to deal with insects. Even though we live out in the rural area (we’re not too far from a really small town though), we’ve always been lucky to not get surprised by too many invaders except when it turns a bit cooler in the Fall. Then we get a few insects passing through. Depending on what they are, I will try to rescue and put back out into their domain, but there are some that just don’t make it. Sorry.

Anyway, after the moving and sweeping behind and spraying, it was just too pretty to not take a bit of time outside with the camera. The flowers aren’t looking that great, but the weeds are flourishing so I took a walk down the road with camera in hand. The weeds reminded me of how we as humans, even in the depth of some despair always seem to find a way to bounce back and are determined to persevere against all odds. Kind of like the weeds that fill the edges of the road, edges of the farmer’s fields, and even among my flower garden. Some weeds will hang on throughout some of the frost, some of the worst storms of winter, and will find a way to awaken next Spring.

So, I guess if I had to choose between being a fragile flower or the weed that can withstand many odds, I’d have to choose a weed. However, I would prefer to be one of the good looking weeds. hahahaha Which would you choose to be?

Some pictures below from my Fall weed~walk today. ~smiles ‘n giggles~

Oh, and also on my weed-walk, I noticed that a few leaves are dropping from our tree and the beginning of the color change has started.

Personally, I’d take Fall weather like today year round. We had a splash of rain this a.m., but then it was over and the day was sunshiny with wispy clouds and a gorgeous blue sky. The farmers are clearing the fields and I noticed the beans are gone, and the one thing I don’t like is the smell from all the manure (or whatever it is) spreading on the fields.

Happy 1st Day of October and Tuesday!!

Thanks for visiting Peabea’s Patch…

Choice

choice for quotography

 

Always love that time of day when everything is settling down on a Summer’s eve. It seems to soothe my soul, make me reflect on life’s offerings and the things I take for granted that are truly gifts from God. Nothing more beautiful than a gift of a beautiful sunset, a child’s laughter as he chases lightening bugs, or even the soft sound of his breathing after a bedtime story.

The Choice is ours whether to take the time to ponder and appreciate.

Thanks, hope you enjoy and have a great day no matter what you’re drinking. I’m a coffee in the morning type person, and maybe some Cranberry Blood Orange Tea once in a while. Especially love Iced Tea with fresh sliced oranges on a hot Summer afternoon.

Cheers!!!
