Seven Day Nature Challenge – Day 2

The lovely Becca Givens from On Dragonfly Wings With Buttercup Tea  has invited me to join the Seven Day Nature Challenge. Every day I will post a photo taken from nature and invite a new person to participate in the challenge.

On day 2 I’m asking Joanne over at My Life Lived Full to join the Seven Day Nature Challenge. She’s travelled far and taken some wonderful photos. I’m hoping she’ll share some of her nature photos in this challenge.


Three Day Quote Challenge – Day 2

….thanks to Elizabeth from Tea and Paper for nominating me

For day two of this challenge I had to share a photo of my new grandchild.


If your baby is “beautiful and perfect, never cries or fusses, sleeps on schedule and burps on demand, an angel all the time,” you’re the grandma.”
— Theresa Bloomingdale

The Rules for the Three Day Challenge are as follows:

Thank the blogger who nominated you.
Publish 3 quotes on 3 consecutive days on your blog. It can be your own, or from a book, movie or from anyone who inspires you.
Nominate 3 more bloggers to carry on this endeavour.

The second person I’d like to nominate is Jodi at Life in Between. I love her wonderful outlook on life, her delicious recipes, amazing photos and her beautiful handmade cards. She is a very gifted, creative and talented person. Check out her blog

Five Stories, Five Photos Challenge – Day 2

I was invited by Elizabeth from Tea and Paper to join the Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge “Post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge.” Elizabeth is a fellow Canadian who lives close by but never reveals exactly where. She loves to journal, take photographs and write poetry.

Today, on day 2, I’d like to invite  Woolly from Woolly Muses who resides ‘way down under’. He describes himself as a former wool chaser and after 30 years changed careers and became a teacher. He loves all kinds of photographic challenges and I hope accepts this invitation to join in on this challenge.

After yesterday’s poem I felt I had jinxed the weather. We had a beautiful, albeit cool day, and I really felt in my heart of hearts that Spring had finally arrived. I did say that more snow was still a possibility in this neck of the woods but I guess I was quietly hoping that after our long and bitterly cold winter that we might get a break from that prediction. Silly me!

Last night, after watching a movie with my husband, I decided to quickly check on my emails before heading off to bed. The dog started to whine, indicating that a quick trip outside was in order. I put my laptop aside, slipped on my shoes and without putting on a jacket I opened the door and this is what I encountered.IMG_4384 IMG_4385 IMG_4386


You can’t really tell from the photos but the snowflakes were big and fluffy and they clung to the branches of the trees. I have to admit that it was pretty but enough is enough.

This morning when I woke up the ground was still covered. Later in the morning didn’t it start to snow again. Once more the flakes were big and fluffy but the temperature must have been hovering just above freezing because it didn’t amount to anything. Later this afternoon all traces of the snow were gone.

Is this the last of the snow?  I’m not saying anything this time. I don’t need to jinx us again.
