Welcome! I'm exploring textures this week. I tightly cropped this image to focus on the gray sky peeking through a barn window.

Goals - 365 Days of Quotes

"Welcome every morning with a smile. Look on the new day as another special gift from your creator, another golden opportunity to complete what you were unable to finish yesterday. Be a self starter. Let your first hour set the theme of success and positive action that is certain to echo through your entire day. Today will never happen again. Don't waste it with a false start or no start at all. You were not born to fail."
...Og Mandino

Howdy! We have ate our fair share of corn on the cob this summer. Our corn was purchased from the back of a truck with an umbrella open so the seller had some shade. Thanks to all the farmers who put in all the hard work for us to enjoy such a delightful side dish.




Think I'll go visit Outdoor Wednesday blogs. Meanwhile, you take care now. See you next week.

Pink Saturday - September 10, 2011

Howdy!


This week I decided to post a Pink abandoned doll. The doll was left on a window sill with broken glass in an empty building. What happened to the doll clothes? I wonder what the story is behind such a quick exit.


American won't forget those we lost on 9/11/2001. God Bless America! Remember that FREEDOM is not free.




I have my fingers and toes crossed that you will visit again. Meanwhile, you take care now.

Abandoned buildings, Siren, Wisconsin 2011.

Howdy! Driving down rural roads feels like an adventure to me. When I find an abandoned building, I can't resist taking the photo. This particular building was in really, really, really, yes I said really bad shape. I was fascinated by all the wild flowers and how the construction material was piled helter skelter.

I chose to change the original color format to a black and white format because it added a hint of mystery to the photograph.

Zah....Zam! It is Pink Saturday again. Seven days sure does whiz by lately.

I decided this week to post this lovely coneflower. I just read on Wikipedia that this plant reseeds in the fall. Think I'll go visit other blogs to see what Pink things they have posted while sipping on some hot chocolate with a dollop of whipped cream. Yummy!

Thanks for stopping. Meanwhile, take care. See you next week.
