HONEY FOR SALE – FRIDAY’S PHLOG FOR APRIL 4, 2014

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

“Well,” said Pooh, “what I like best,” and then he had to stop and think. Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn’t know what it was called.”
― A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

DAISIES OF SPRING – FRIDAY’S PHLOG FOR MARCH 14, 2014

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I took this picture in Manning Park.  We were camping in the park and walking to our fishing hole.  As we came around a corner we were faced with a sea of daisies.  The boys and Drew walked straight to the edge of the lake and started fishing without much fanfare.   I walked through the field of daisies and took pictures for an hour.  Men just don’t appreciate some of the finer things in life!

“Daisies are like sunshine to the ground”

CANNERY ROW, FRIDAY’S PHLOG FOR SEPTEMBER 27, 2013

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

“It has always seemed strange to me…The things we admire in men, kindness and generosity, openness, honesty, understanding and feeling, are the concomitants of failure in our system. And those traits we detest, sharpness, greed, acquisitiveness, meanness, egotism and self-interest, are the traits of success. And while men admire the quality of the first they love the produce of the second.” ―

PEBBLES – FRIDAY’S PHLOG FOR AUGUST 22ND, 2013

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe other night my husband and I were talking about making it in this world  and I reflected that at times  “I feel like a small pebble amongst huge rocks all around me.”  My husband looked at me and said “maybe so,  but all it takes is a small pebble to start an avalanche.”

I like his way of thinking – that’s why I married him!

SOMEWHERE OVER THE RAINBOW!

After work as I sat on my porch watching my boys playing roller hockey, I turned to the sky and saw this – it’s been such a miserable couple of days and I’ve been feeling rather exhausted and here is this beautiful rainbow showing me that things can improve.  This quote says it all:

“Life is like a rainbow, you need both the sun and the rain to make its colours appear”

Looking forward to the weekend!
