Monday Walkabout: Fredericksburg Street Art
Drive over the Chatham Bridge towards Fredericksburg and you will see another fantastic feature of Old Town. It’s Murals. This was painted by Mirinda Reynolds, Carol Coffman and a small group of high school students. This is one part of 5 panels. It’s titled “The Warmth of Fredericksburg” and was painted by Jay…
Monday Walkabout : Black and White Edition
Downtown Fredericksburg is an eclectic town filled with historic architecture, tatoo parlors, beautiful murals, antique shops and seriously fantastic food. And yet, you can still find a place a to park. Even better! I started out this day with a view of the steeple from St. George’s Episcopal Church. The current structure dates…
Weekly Photo Challenge: Catching Up
A couple of months ago a friend of mine, Tabitha, ( who also happens to be a fantastic photographer) started a weekly photography challenge. I was already on the hunt for one as a way to give me a way to focus on my own photography more, so I jumped on board. Some weeks I…
Monday Walkabout – Old Town Fredericksburg
Fredericksburg, Virginia sits right on the Rappahannock River. George Washington, Mary Washington, James Monroe lived in the area just to name a few. Then there are the civil war sites. More than you can shake a stick at, that’s for sure. Several pivotal battles occured in the area. At some point, I’ll have to tell…
The Sparkle of Simple Things
Sometimes, it just the simple things that matter. Hamburgers, hotdogs, grilled corn-on-the-cob with watermelon to top it off. The whole family home for dinner. And Fireworks to top off the day. How did your Independence Day Sparkle?
The sun had set and our weather radio went off. I suppose if your smart and have a severe thunderstorm warning you head inside. Naaaaahhh! Kevin and I like to watch the light show. It was quite a show. I even managed to get lucky. My very first lightening strike. YES!!
What Does Spring Taste Like?
Strawberries are one the most wonderful gifts we have ever been given. Fresh out of the box with nothing else added they taste like sunshine, spring and happiness bursting in each sweet bite. But that’s just the beginning! There’s strawberry shortcake (which I prefer with pound cake as the base), strawberry smoothies, strawberry jam, chocolate…
Some Sun, Some Fun and a Little Speed for Good Measure
All in the last 3 days! Spring Break has been GREAT!
Sometimes you have to get sneaky with old dogs.
Getting a picture of this dog is not an easy thing. She’s smart and she doesn’t like the flash. At 14 she’s learned a few things. As soon as you raise the camera to your eye she gets up and is on her way out of the room. She just won’t put up with having…
Be Still and know that I am God.
Conference still has one more session, but I have to say that I feel as if I have already been so nourished that I might burst. I needed this, more than words can express. With Easter coming I may have other thoughts, but for now I will simply quote a scripture that was quoted in…
