2018 Recap: The Weekly Photo Challenge

This month I will be posting recaps of various categories for 2018.  Today I am highlighting The Weekly Photo Challenges of 2018.   As many of you remember, in June WordPress announced their last Weekly Photo Challenge.  Many of us voiced our disapproval with this move but over time we realized change is a part of…

Our Cabin: A 30-Day Comparison

What a difference 30 days can make.  The photo on the left was taken early November.  The one on the right was taken today.   Just yesterday temperatures climbed to 60 F.  Today, snow and colder temperatures.  Welcome to Indiana.  Personally, I miss the beautiful fall colors but I have come to terms with “winter is…

A Lovely Walk in a Fall Forest

With my Nikon in tow, I took a stroll through our woods last Monday.  I am glad I did.  The fall foliage was at its best.  This beautiful fall day was followed by several rainy days in a row.  Leaving many of our trees with fewer leaves. Click on any photo above to view a…

Some Trail Maintenance is Needed

The other day I ventured off with my camera in hopes of capturing the peak fall foliage of our woods.  I was surprised to see so much green left.  Along the way I stumbled upon a few new trees down across our paths.  Looks like it’s time to spend a day clearing some trails. Next…

Acorns Are Falling…Find Cover!

It is a war zone at our cabin in the woods.  Acorns are falling like mad.  With each hit of an acorn on our deck or roof it sounds like we are under attack. I took this picture today after sweeping up our patio.  This pile is only two days’ worth!  Crazy how many have…

Critters From Our Woods

“The Future of Humanity”

  “The Future of Humanity” Michio Kaku Nonfiction, 307 pages. Hands down this is one of the best books I have read.  Keep in mind I love anything space related.  Currently, I am watching old episodes of Star Trek.  I love the possibilities of future space travel.  This book outlines those possibilities and how we…

A Butterfly Sanctuary of Our Own

A short walk from our cabin there is a place where butterflies flutter free.  Here they thrive on wild growth.  On any day one will encounter 20 or more.  Flying above your head, dipping here and there, or resting on a tall pink flowering plant.  Last year I do not recall as many.  But this…

Raindrops Everywhere

We have had a lot of rain lately, making raindrops the perfect subject matter for this week’s photos.
