round robin challenge: dream homes

for other entries look here:  The Round Robin Photo Challenges

my ideal dream home would be a cute lil cottage nestled in the woods overlooking a lake...but that hasn't happened in the dream home is right here...where my heart is...where love, peace and harmony reside.  but nothing can compare to the heavenly mansion my Father is preparing for me.  :)

joe wheeler state park

yesterday hubby and i went to one of the nearby state parks...he takes his guitar and i take my camera....i like having him tag along...sometimes he'll even take a camera!  :)

today i had to drive to nashville for a meeting.  my boss had asked me to be on a cqi do you tell your boss no??  as it turns out, it is interesting, and i'm learning a few things.  the worse part is that for an hour meeting, its a 3 hour round trip drive!  lots of time for reflection and mediation....and radio!  i mostly listen to a couple of local contemporary christian stations...some of those songs are really annointed!

i had planned on going to the clinic after the meeting, but my daughter had called.  they were taking the baby to the i head straight to the hospital.  by the time i get there, they had completed all the tests, had given him advil and tylenol and he was feeling some better.  he got an antibiotic injection and was released.  sure is hard to see your lil ones under the weather.  i had gone by their house and picked up his paci and his favorite bear and blanket...he was more glad to see that blanket than me!  lol  i'm just glad he's home and feeling better.

time for me to hit the hay...lots of catch up work to do tomorrow.  hope everyone has a great tuesday.

round robin challenge: nostalgia

look for other entries at The Round Robin Photo Challenges

this week's challenge is nostalgia....'a bittersweet longing for things, persons, or situations of the past.'   well.....the following pics do it for me.

there's just something about that forlorn whistle of a train in the distance that stirs something deep within.....


and ohhhh, how i love the beach.  it's therapeutic to my soul!  just to watch and listen to waves tumbling over one another making it to shore.....


                      and i absolutely love's my most favorite time of the year!!!  :)


                                        and there's nothing so peaceful as a sunrise on a lake.....


                  germany last summer....oh what a trip....such beauty....i do so want to go back!!

just my camera and me...out at one of our state parks.  the temperature was in the mid 80's and it was a wonderful day!  i love the outdoors and nature trails, and especially with boardwalks and mosquito control....i know this isn't always possible...but yesterday it was.  :)
