Summer Sky

“Summer afternoon—summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.”

Cee’s Black & White Challenge: Back of Things

I could optimistically say that I’m going to get back in the swing of posting again. And I might just believe myself. But let’s be honest here…. my track record is spotty at best. The last 8-10 months have hit me hard. Outside demands have kept me from my everyday life. After losing my loved one three months ago, I thought I would work my way back to normalcy but that wasn’t in the cards. Another dear one fell ill and before I could catch my breath, I found myself back at the hospital more often than not. While I pray that my dear one recovers, I need to grab back some of my life…. for everyone’s sake. Especially my own.

A little late but here are my five item photos for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: 5 + items!

Feelin’ the Blues

Lately I’ve been feeling a bit blue so it seemed only appropriate that I take part in the Sunday Stills: Blue.

It’s hard to feel blue with such beautiful flowers all around.

These little guys are certainly enjoying the blue sky from their high perch!
