No, it is not my wedding anniversary, although it would have been Carol's, which I am trying hard not to think about as you can well imagine. Indeed it is the 13th anniversary of this little space on the gigantic world wide web, although when I began, I am thinking it was far smaller. Anyway, it's been fun to write about most anything you can think of all these years, however, it began with THISvery short post. Re-reading it just now, which takes all of about 30 seconds, I see things have not changed much as I am still "camera crazy!"
Let's see what caught my fancy this week, shall we? Oranges, that's what. Ever since Red Hill Grove closed up a few years ago, I've relied on supermarket juice, but when I saw some juice oranges at Clemons this week, well, I've still got my juicer.
We are both very tied up all of next week with the rummage sale, or at least that is what the schedule looks like right now, so we just had to get out and about while we could. Nothing too far afield, in fact, one of our excursions was fairly close to home, and that would be walking around Lake Baldwin in Baldwin Park. We did that years ago for a fundraiser Michelle was involved in but have never returned. The weather this week has been crazy warm, yet without the humidity, it is bearable. I am SO dreading summer I don't even know how I will manage it for another year. But, I digress.
On this day we saw a variety of landscapes from this,
I visited Maureen one morning and she is much the same, no better, but fortunately no worse. She managed to stay awake my entire visit, always a plus.
The quilt I've been working on has been mostly neglected until one day this week, I got to it for some hours, putting the pieces together, one by one.
in this post from August, 2011,I mentioned seeing potential out that way, and boy was I right for a change. That said, I suspect all of the original Winter Garden people are nary too thrilled with all of the new folks coming to town. In fact, when Dana first mentioned WG to me, I thought about how it was always a farming kind of town. No longer is that the case, and in ten more years it will be unrecognizable. Because it is so cute, I can't blame folks for moving there.
Another awesome thing we saw was an Eagle's nest!!! It's been a long time since I've seen one, so I was thrilled and thankful that I noticed a woman intently pointing her camera upward. She was kind enough to share her discovery. One eaglet is calling for food!
Speaking of that motto, I just got off a Facetime chat with Matt and during our lengthy discussion the subject of traveling came up. Matt and Tom know a thing or two about traveling but next month they are embarking on a journey the likes of which they've yet to experience before. Heading West those two young men are, seeing all of the natural beauty there is to see on a road trip! Matt rarely drives so it will be quite the adventure of which I have to admit, I am a little jealous about. Seeing the Grand Canyon is just one of the highlights. I can hardly wait to see the photographs!
What's our next adventure? Tune in again to find out. In a few years I will wonder about what we were doing at this time of our life and with any luck, I'll have this blog to remind me.
