Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Non-Alive Animals

Here are my photos for this week’s Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Non-Alive Animals.

Interesting- kind of- frog soap dispenser
I love my turtle lamp! He is currently without a place to light but I’m hoping to find one for him soon!
This bear used to be musical but he broke and was considered trash.
I rescued him and he’s been part of our family’s Christmas decorations ever since.

Here’s to a fresh new week! Okay, it’s already started. I realized it as I was typing that it wasn’t Sunday or Monday. Lost track of the days. What’s new?


Nothing But Cold

What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.” John Steinbeck

“For winter was coming. The days were shorter, and frost crawled up the window panes at night. Soon the snow would come. Then the log house would be almost buried in snowdrifts, and the lake and the stream would freeze.” – Laura Ingalls Wilder

It seems fitting to concentrate on the “cold” portion of Cee’s Black & White Challenge- Hot or Cold Things with snow on the ground and a chill in the air.

Stay warm!


A Look at 2020

Firmly resolved that I was going to get back to my blog I jumped in by looking through ongoing challenges. Since the weather was miserable and I was primarily looking at photo challenges, I was hoping to find a love connection between prompts and my photos on hand. Just as I was preparing to give myself a kick in the pants to DO SOMETHING, I saw this week’s prompt for Sunday Stills- Your 2020 Retrospective. This is exactly what I needed.

Here are my more popular photos:

2020 was more than just the beginning of the pandemic, although that did monopolize most of our lives. I would like to share a few photos that sum up my year.

And last of all, a few of my favorite photos-

I would like to thank Terri at Second Wind Leisure Perspectives for hosting the Sunday Stills Photo Challenge. It’s a challenge I’ve always enjoyed and don’t participate in nearly enough!

Here’s to making new memories in the coming year!
