View From The Swamp



These photos were taken with a wildlife camera my husband gave me for Christmas last year.  I've tried it  in several places without a great deal of success.  I finally took it all the way down the hill to the edge of the swamp, next to the log I stand on to watch the swamp, and strapped it low on the tree, facing away from the swamp.  These pictures were from October 27th through November 8th.

Today is Brought to You by The Letter S

Scenic Vistas


A short get-away last week to North Conway, New Hampshire.  A little hiking, a little shopping, a lot of sewing ~ my sister put most of her quilt top together, I dabbled with a stressful block and then laid out last year's quilt to ponder over what to hand quilt the borders...still haven't decided.  A lot of reminiscing ~ 24 years of memories with my parents in this place and time of year.

A heart full of gratitude this morning....

for POWER restored!!!

for a supper delivery (thank you MyStory)...even though we didn't deserve it

for a four month stretch of good health for grandbaby

for parents who took me camping so I can survive with limited water

for grandbaby's giggles that remind me of my grandmother

for a gas stove

for the privilege of a boomerang situation so that I can see grandbaby's unique way of dealing with physical limitations

for a flight delay
