Slowing Down and Seeing God Through My Camera Lens

I take a lot of pictures. I mean, a lot of pictures. Ever since we bought one of those cameras that makes a regular mom look like a semi-capable photographer, I have probably taken somewhere in the thousands. I easily unload 100+ a week from my smart card. Sometimes I worry that I’m guilty of watching life happen through a lens rather than right in front of me. But other times, I know that my kids -- my babies -- are growing up in a blur and I feel that if don’t snap those precious moments, they might just fade away. ...more
I love this.  I feel the same way so often.  I don't want to take pictures with the idea of ...more

Meltdowns & Mariposas

In the spirit of brevity and head-fogging fatigue, this will be short. I just want to share that after a major meltdown at Knit the Bridge, my 2 year old daughter spotted this maple seed helicopter on our street and exclaimed, "mariposa!"  It reminded me of the wonderful associations her bursting little brain can make, even if she did want to rip "all the blankets off the bridge! off! off!"...more

Japanese Beetle Damage Photos, Friday Wrap-Up

Loving that Fall, my favourite time of year is fast approaching. This weekend is the Labour Day weekend, so I'm happy about that. A great excuse to do what I want and if that means nothing, there's no guilt. I plan to continue catching up on reading, which I've made a point of, these last few weekends. Sometimes it's so nice to step inside another world for awhile. Be safe and have a great weekend!...more

Getting Ready For Europe

Well, it’s not very long now before we head off into the sun again. This time we are headed for Zurich, where we will spend 3 days with a tour group our travel agent set up. We do get free time while we are there, which will be great, as long as we don’t get lost.After  3 days in Switzerland, we take a train to Amsterdam, where we board our Avalon Waterways river cruise boat for seven days of cruising the Rhine River. Afterwards, we spend 3 days in Paris, again with a guided tour group. Which gives me peace. I don’t want to get lost. Did I mention that before?...more

Friday August 23-13, Photos

It's been a while since I've been happy with the results of my point & shoot camera photography, so I'll share some shots that I was able to take today. I don't know what's going on in the corner of the garden but it was fly, bee, and wasp central today. Of course I'll be back bugging them tomorrow to get more pictures of these amazing creatures. Hope you enjoy and have a great weekend!...more
I think they're great shots!more

Have you heard of Bookshelfies?

Based on a comical new Tumblr,  Bookshelfies are simply selfies taken in front of one's bookshelf. I'm usually pretty shy with posting pictures of myself on my blog but, with a little encouragement from my friends, I took the leap this morning. ...more
@KateJoranson You must have an excellent bookshelf for this purpose :)more
