Weekly Photo Challenge…lines

Have you ever been without electricity?  Each of us has probably experienced a power outage or two in our lives.  Most power outages are temporary, lasting from a few minutes to a few hours.

Personally I never think too much about the power companies or whether there will be electricity when I flip the light switch.  At least until there isn’t any. 

Then it happened…a huge storm called Hurricane Ike.  It wasn’t just a few minutes or even a few hours, not just a day or two.  It was a personal record…not one I care to repeat or even beat.  We were 13 days without electricity!

What’s the longest you have gone without electricity?

Teaser Tuesdays…04.12.11

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should be Reading.  Anyone can play along!  Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) teaser sentences from somewhere on that page
  • Be careful not to include spoilers (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Bad Girls of the Bible   -              By: Liz Curtis Higgs      Here is my teaser:  “So your name is-“
“Devin.”  His voice was low and smooth, with no remnant of a hiss.  “t’s a Gaelic name, from the old country.  It means serp-ah, that is, servant.”  He shrugged.  “Or poet.   Take your pick.”

J is for junktiques…(a-z challenge)

One man’s Junk is…

another womans Junktiques!!!

Antiques, Junk, Americana… Junktiques!  I enjoy browsing through re-sale shops, estate sales and old barns.  There are treasures waiting to be salvaged and re-purposed.  As my adoring husband likes to tell everyone, I have an eye for this stuff.  I enjoy finding old discarded and forgotten items and incorporating the old with the new.  I call it elegant americana.   It is my own eclectic mix of design.  A collection of old pottery displayed in  a contemporary cabinet highlights both without one over powering the other.  It is a delicate balancing act, one that takes a little time and a willingness to look past the dents and the dust and envision what once was could be again. 

I love this little green chair…I think I will enjoy it just the way it is for a little while…I don’t think I can envision it any color but green.  Finding the “right” green will be half the fun!

Whether you’re a beginner or a professional, you’re invited to get involved in our Weekly Photo Challenge to help you meet your blogging goals and give you another way to take part in Post a Day / Post a Week. Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.

Here’s how it works:

1. Each week, we’ll provide a theme for creative inspiration. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog anytime before the following Friday when the next photo theme will be announced.

2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “Weekly Photo Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use a “postaday2011″ or “postaweek2011″ tag.

suncreek garden chronicles…row, row, row

Suncreek Garden Chronicles… Installment #3

 To recap:  The plot was chosen.  The garden soil was delivered.  The perimeter fence posts were put into place. 

Now it’s time to make the rows.  Strong backs and muscles were the order of the day.

suncreek garden chronicles…the work begins

This is my second installment of the suncreek garden chronicles. 

 Things always look the worst just before they look better. 

 We live in a heavily wooded area and have more than our share of wild life roaming around our property.  There are deer, wild hogs, rabbits, coyotes and I don’t want to think what else might be just out of my line of sight. 

Therefore, my Man with a Plan decided we should have a 6′ perimeter fence around the 30′ x 30′ garden.
