Here you will find scattered pictures from my point and shoot camera, random thoughts from my little world, treasured memories of days gone by, hopeful dreams of the days yet to come, and a bunch of ideas - because I've always got ideas!

Today At My House
Earlier in the week I was holding a sleeping Broeder when I noticed the bushes under the window were quivering like crazy. Then I saw it. A Cooper's Hawk (i think) sitting in the middle of our front yard.
Today I was sitting in the same chair, telling the story to anyone who would listen, when I looked out the window, and in the tree right across the street was a hawk.
Of course I grabbed my camera. I was able to get a few good pictures, and so was Jonge, who has a steadier arm than I do.
It's a beautiful bird.
I've been seeing this one, or one just like it, for five years now.
I'm the mother of three grown children, and I have a son-in-law and two daughters-in-law who are gifts from God. I've been married to The Husband God Gave Me (THGGM) for 38 years. On January 1, 2006 I became "Beppe" to Jonge, who was quickly followed by Famke, Kado, Feintsje, Hertsje, and Broeder. They have real names, but these are what I call them on this blog. I've always been boring and I doubt that will change anytime soon. Because.., well.., I'm dreadfully GOOD at it!
