Skywatch Friday Painted Sky

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

This week has been gorgeous, kittens and dawgs! In fact, it’s been so NICE that I found myself outdoors a lot and once again I neglected my responsibilities in Blogosphere. Shame on Cathy!

You’re the best and I know you can’t fault me for taking advantage of soaking up a little sunshine. Today, I’m borrowing from my archives and am sharing another beautiful sunset.

Fort Loudon Lake in Farragut (just outside of Knoxville), Tennessee.

I couldn’t resist using the same image in Brustrokes. I REALLY like this cool app! Now I can say, here’s a painted sky. lol

I’m sharing my photo-art with the SWF team and s-A(R)T-urday.  Now, I’m joining Lexa in Celebrate the small things.

I’m celebrating…

  • the return of spring-like weather. Nature might be teasing us, but I’m so lovin’ it!
  • the return of DST. YAY! I’ve already notice the daylight extending a little each day, so the time change will be a nice boost. I wish it was always on DST, don’t you?
  • finding out when I went for my quarterly Sotopelle insert (Hormone Replacement Therapy) appointment that I had a ninety dollar credit on my account. 🙂
  • getting my HRT taken care of. I really needed the boost to ease pesky menopause symptoms.

What are you celebrating?

Join the party below!

Let’s begin celebrating with Friendship Friday and Friday Features linky parties where you’re sure to make new friends and get lots of inspiration!

I am participating in the A-Z April blog challenge. Starting next week running through the end of April this regularly hop will double with my mid-week post. That’s a wrap for now, but if you like music then I invite you to come back for Monday’s Music Moves Me.  Until next time, have a fototastic weekend!

Skywatch Friday: It was a dark and stormy night

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

It’s Halloween’s eve; I thought it would be good time to get my creepy on.

I originally shared this image, here, but felt it a perfect choice for Halloween’s Eve, don’t you?

Well, not exactly but thanks to photo-editing I turned an ordinary day shot of an exceptionally interesting tree into a dark and stormy night with a scary, gnarly tree.

For more bizarre or not-so-creepy sky shots join photo enthusiasts across the net on Skywatch Friday .

It’s time for Celebrate the small things.

I celebrate….

  • that there aren’t any such things as zombies, vampires, werewolves, and other scary supernatural forces.
  • the talents of screenwriters/novelist imaginative minds who breathe life into these creepy monsters in their manuscripts or upon the big screen for our entertainment.
  • all things yummy… caramel apples, bite size candy bars, caramel corn, pumpkin spiced lattes, and hot chocolate.
  • the sweet memories of trick or treating from my childhood and of my children.
  • above all else that I have never experienced any real life horror stories

Life should be celebrated, even when it seems like you have no reason to celebrate. Just look around, I bet you’ll see something good! What are you celebrating?

One way to celebrate is with  Friendship Friday and Friday Features Linky Party, where you’re sure to make new friends and get lots of inspiration to boot!

For more spooktacular fun, check out my 5 of the scariest movies I’ve seen and H.R.’s 10 Graveyard Facts.

Have a safe and fun Halloween! Join me on Sunday for November 1st edition of Battle of the Band. Thanks for visiting. Until we meet on the other side of the lens, have a fototastic day!

Taking a blog break

I captured this image with my iPhone and used Pixelmator for the photo editing.

If you’re visiting today and don’t know what’s going on in my life, then let me do a quick recap. DH lost his job last Friday. Bummer, right? Well, we were given three months more from his original termination date (3-31-2015) and that was a blessing to get the extension.

For the next bit, DH and I are going to regroup, take some time for ourselves because who knows when we’ll get a chance to unwind for a bit and vacation days with a new job will be zero for this year. So, we plan to enjoy a some R&R.

Be patient with me. I’ll be back to my blogging ways before no time. Meanwhile, say a prayer for us. We know God is in control and it’s in Him we place our trust. Thanks!

Twin Peaks #photoart #WW

I know what you’re thinking, you’re thinking of the TV series and every time I think of Twin Peaks I always think of the soft, haunting voice of Julee Cruise and if you like her style then you may want to listen to Monday’s featured artist because one of my commenters made the connection to Twin Peaks.

This morning’s music inspiration is from the popular TV program, but my photo-art creation is a simple mash-up of images taken of a new restaurant (opened 2014). We have not eaten here yet, but it sure looks neat.

Linking photoart project 13 with Claudia for #s-ART-urday!

Have you eaten at a Twin Peaks? If so, what do you recommend? Are you a fan of the cult classic TV show? Did you know ShowTime network will air a new season of Twin Peaks in 2016?

 



 

I hope you’re finding time to make the most of the long summer days, but if you’re stuck indoors due to rainy weather, then you might want to check out these #WW shutterbugs.

 

Have a fototastic day! ~borrowed image~

#HappyBirthdayAmerica edition

It’s so good to see you this morning, kittens & dawgs! Thank you for making me apart of your weekend. This morning’s music edition, I’d like to invite y’all to listen to two rock covers of our national anthem and vote for your favorite on #BOTB Star Spangled Banner Showdown ~ Spirit VS #MadisonRising.

 

I shared my#s-ART-urday photoart creation a bit early this week. I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed with so many to-dos on my plate. Maybe I’ll be back into the swing of things next week or then maybe I won’t. Is this a sign that I need to step away for a week or two or three from blogging? Could be! Meanwhile, I’m gonna leave you with a few giggles and I hope your day is full of smiles!
