Changing Seasons

It's not spring yet but you wouldn't know it from the way the gardens are looking around here. Several days of 70 degree weather has brought all the daffodils out. I am not complaining at all!

With the warmer temperatures we spent the afternoon walking the Garden's and snapping some photos. There was yellow everywhere you looked, it was a beautiful sight.

Just a s the seasons seem to be changing from winter to spring, our "life" season continues to change. I've been   debating on whether or not to continue with my blog, I wondered whether the time for it ended?  I have not been able to devote as much time to it as once did, but there are still things I want to remember, and photos that I don't want buried on my phone.

I asked for some feedback and the response was a surprising, yes, please continue, so I am.
The blog may look different going forward, there may just be a memory of the day, or a photo, or a scripture. It will still be a reflection on what is happening in our lives, how the Lord is working, but sometimes it may just be something I saw and want to remember. Something beautiful or ordinary that makes up the stuff of life.

The photo below is a clue as to what has been taking up all my time. Our room over the garage has gone from being a playroom for my grandchildren to an office/storeroom, I never saw this one coming!

January Moments

Well January is over, doesn't it seem to have flown by? I continue to be behind on my blogging but if nothing else I will try to continue to post photos as I am able.

One of my goals for this year was to participate in a 365 photo challenge, I didn't even make it a week. There are different seasons for different activities and this doesn't seem to be the right time for me to do this so I've abandoned this project for now. I am however going to try to take more photos with my regular camera and rely less on my phone camera. Taking photos is easier with the phone, I don't have to lug the big camera around, but I just don't think the photos are as good of quality, so thats something I will continue to work on.

January was the month I saw my oncologist, all continues well, Very thankful to the Lord for his continue grace on or life, and my continued good health. We had some snow that closed the city down for about three days and we had several days that saw temperatures in the 60s and 70s. My poor plants don't know what to think. We started on a business venture, the pocket watch is our logo. That is another blog post all in itself and we made a trip to Williamsburg for the day just to get away.

Our grandsons also sent us a "traveling" journal that we had fun taking around town for a day, we took it to Cape Henry Lighthouse and First Landing

January was a time for my husband and I to reconnect a bit after the busy holiday and to explore some new interests. One is going to the driving range on the Fridays he has off, the other is going to estate sales. It was a busy month but in a good way. Here is a sample of what our January looked like. What was yours like?
