My World this Week

I didn't think I'd have time to post a My World this Week.  With garden work calling and storms taking out my Internet, it has not been conducive this past few days to getting online.

So here is just a quick peek at my world through the lens of a camera this week.

I'm reading Woman of Courage to review soon.

So happy my library had these DVDs!

Strawberries cut and ready to pop in the freezer for an hour (or three if one forgets) before placing into freezer bags.

She seems to find her way in a lot of photos.  I never realized I hadn't shown the kitchen and family room from this angle.  The TV is on the other side of the stove with a low wall between them.

Which is why I can listen to a program while cooking.  ;)

The Study in the Storm
I took this photo this evening in the midst of a thunderstorm.

Tweaking the Study Bulletin Board
I hadn't changed the bulletin board in over two years.  That calendar page in the middle is the sweet chapel where Stephanie and her Hubby were married.

That's my favorite photo of my own wedding to the left.  I don't know if one can see that the groom has rather long-ish hair and Elvis sideburns.  After all, it was the 1970s! Wow he was handsome.  Wow... I was young.

Hubby looked so much like Harrison Ford at one time that he would get stopped in airports when he traveled on business.  He never pretended to be Harrison, though.  I tell him Harrison has a better makeup man these days.  ;)

Her Fluffiness
The window is open, the breeze is flowing, she looks so regal...  No, I do not prepare food on the little kitchen island.  Yes, I do wash it.  But having company in the kitchen is worth it all.  ;)

Oh, your study looks so cozy and serene in the midst of a storm. I love how Her Fluffiness seems to know how to pose for the camera.

Looks as if you have a supervisor! Somewhere you have shown a closer look at your wedding photo...I think...because I can "see" the sideburns, but not here.

Looks like a good week to me!

We are on our way home from my in laws in Florida. Tim's mom is 92 1/2 and starting to quickly lose her short term memory. His brother just got home from West Africa and was in town for meetings, one sister lives nearby, the other was already coming for a visit, so it was good that we were able to come too!

I'll have to have a look at those dvds. We have read some of his Dog Stories and a few of his other children's books. Might be fun to watch this series!

I like Wanda Brunstetter too. She is one of my favorite Amish authors. You kitchen and family room look so nice and homey - I can tell from your pictures that you have a lovely atmosphere in your home. Your kitty looks like one we used to have - I do miss having a kitty - except at litter box changing time! Enjoy the rest of the week.

Such a welcoming home you have. And I do love the pictures of your sweet Kitty. Thank you for sharing, Cecile

You kitchen is so welcoming and "real". (I'm struggling with finding a word to describe my relief at seeing a kitchen much like my own...) Thanks for opening your "doors" to me this morning. I've enjoyed hearing what you are reading and seeing a piece of your life.

to Rebecca (and Miss Brenda)All a kitchen has to have to be real is a loving person to do the work of nourishment and nurture. I totally agree that it is refreshing to see the reality of a life lived within means,,,and lived well! We love you, Brenda, and I thank you for this blog!

How could you make the comment about your husband & not post a picture? :o)

Love seeing your room from a different vantage point. Sometimes we just need to do that, don't we?

I liked the Herriot series when on PBS. John and I were discussing giving up cable in the near future. We've planned to go with plain old antenna tv and purchase dvds of favorite programs. I shall add this one to my list.
