Cold Beauty

I watched the cold foggy early morning come into the light. A magical fairyland I thought. One could just watch in awe at the transformation. The fog had rushed to form intricate crystals over everything. Odd. Something was odd, yet beautiful. I closed my morning reading, sipped my strong morning coffee brew and silently saidContinue reading “Cold Beauty”

Living in Mid-Autumn

Autumn beauty is everywhere around our neck of the woods. Stuff is dying like crazy. Beautiful fall leaves changing color are dying leaves. Most of the worker bees have been chased out of the nest and are gone even though there are still a few flowers blooming. That will end this week as temperatures willContinue reading “Living in Mid-Autumn”

Thoughts with a view

Our dining room, kitchen and living room are all one big open space. To the west through the patio doors is a huge screened in area we call our west screen porch. We have a view and I try to share some of the things we see out the window now and then. Have aContinue reading “Thoughts with a view”

Dazzling Dew Drop

¬†This morning I was absolutely amazed at what I saw…I pass this mornings thoughts and pictures on to you. Last day of August 2019. It’s still dark when step out on the screen porch. My place to think, pray, meditate, read, dream and watch for all forms of wildlife. In all the hundreds of FlowersContinue reading “Dazzling Dew Drop”

A Family Tastes the Wilderness, and it’s Good

My oldest grand daughter is going into her senior high school year so she had the privilege of choosing the family vacation. She chose to go to the BWCA wilderness with grandpa as guide. How cool is that? 5 days unplugged from technology and looking at the sky for hints of a weather forecast. 5Continue reading “A Family Tastes the Wilderness, and it’s Good”

A Good Morning From Northern Wisconsin

My morning reading, prayer and meditation time was interrupted when I looked out the window. My first thought as if a voice whispered in my ear… “you can share this with the world”. My second thought “I only have my sleep shorts on. 99 seconds later my camera was on a tripod and I wasContinue reading “A Good Morning From Northern Wisconsin”

Images: One Frosty Morning

Imagine for a moment that we have no ability to know or understand the concept of beauty. What the eye sees other than a field, trees, leaves, landscape, sunrise colors and frost on the bush is not attached to any compartment in our brain labeled “Beauty”. The emotion of a moment is never lost; it’sContinue reading “Images: One Frosty Morning”

Wintering the Weather

I know, it’s the other way around but sometimes having¬† moments of lysdexia can be advantaged. I took some photos from inside my sons house while visiting northern Minnesota at -50 below zero fahrenheit (wind chill as it was really only -34). My budding Picasso wannabe grandson created a perfect picture which could describe theContinue reading “Wintering the Weather”

Black Powder Hunting in Narnia

I just stepped in the door from an exciting afternoon adventure. I’m still hunting for our winters table fare with a black powder rifle. I think I was in Narnia, somehow, maybe. I even brought the camera. I held the gun ready after a ruffled grouse sailed straight at me and set down in frontContinue reading “Black Powder Hunting in Narnia”

>Day is Done by Gary Fultz

>                                                                                          Nice photo Hutch!     A beautiful sunset marks the end of a perfect evening on the water. You shiver as the big Timbers start to moan at the end of the tamarack swamp nearby. It’s so still that you can hear your fingers squish a couple of big Minnesota  mosquitoes honing in onContinue reading “>Day is Done by Gary Fultz”
