FOTD – Bouquets

Festival of flowers at the grocery store. So pretty, I couldn’t resist and take this pic. It wasn’t easy to decide which bouquet to bring home with me, but as Monet said:

I must have flowers, always, and always. 
Claude Monet

I had to pick one of them. Can you guess which one?

Sunday Stills: Earth’s fire

my first tulips of 2019

I enjoyed so much to join Sunday Stills with Hugh these last 2 Sundays, that I decided to keep up with Terri’s Sunday Stills Photo Challenge.

Today’s theme is Fire.

The first thing that came to my mind was the Earth’s fire, the Earth core where the temperature is similar to the temperature in the surface of the sun, around 6000 Celsius! It isn’t a fire in there, but a metal combination that makes the heat.

We are in the middle of the winter in the North Hemisphere, soon the spring will spring, a sign that the Earth is alive and the fire still keeps burning.

Have a great Sunday!

Sunday Stills: Window

Hugh, from Hugh’s Views & News, for Sunday Stills. 

I haven’t joined a challenge for so long, but being a friend of Hugh for many years, I’ve decided to give it a try.

Today Hugh asks us to write about windows. This is my view, right now, from my living room window. I’m wondering if I’ll be able to go out.

We had a massive snow storm yesterday, we were snowed in all day. Not being able to move the car for grocery shopping, my refrigerator is empty! Being at home all day with 2 teenages, you can imagine…

View from my kitchen window during the storm, it’s so pretty, but not easy to handle. I spent the day baking, journaling and drinking lots of tea to keep warm.

Now the last one is the view to my backyard, the sun is shining but it’s very cold, – 13 degrees Celsius, and again I’m wondering how many layers I’ll have to dress up to go out!

Hope you enjoy your Sunday, and check Hugh’s blog for joining the challenge or wondering about windows.

Experimental: upside down iPhone

The leaves in my yard are pretty. I thought in taking a close up of them, but I was too lazy to go down on my knees to take the photo. I turned my phone upside down and without looking and focusing I clicked! Here it is,  a great photo! You can see my pumpkins, on the sidewalk, waiting the recycle truck 🙂 they are a bonus to the photo, since I didn’t see them there before taking the photo.

702 pages

The new book of Stephen King and Owen King just came out in September – Sleeping Beauties. It has 702 pages! I got it from the library yesterday, and it was in the quick reads shelf, this means I have one week to read it, and no renew! I’m not sure where my mind was when I checked it out. But I couldn’t resist to have Mr. King’s new book in my hands.
