The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge for the week of June 24, 2016. This week, share an image of partners. A pair, a trio, a sextet; people, buildings, plants — whatever you choose to shoot, give us subjects that are in tune with one another. They were partners from the very beginning… … all the way to the end.
I shared in a previous post that I’ve been working away on the Ashton Shawlette, a free pattern by designer Dee O’Keefe, which I found thanks to Ravelry. I’m actually doing it twice over.

There’s not too many things more curved than a snake — especially when you disturb him while he’s trying […]

Definition: a thing that happens, especially one of importance. — A planned occasion or activity (such as a social gathering) — Each of several particular contests making up a sports competition I had a pretty event-full May, so I was absolutely ready for this challenge! However, completely by chance — while I was having trouble getting […]
Today I went for my customary morning walk and made a beeline for the Saturday morning farmer’s market in Folsom, just off Sutter Street. I’ve previously shared a picture from my very first visit back in January. That was on a cool, very rainy day; this June morning the sky was bright blue and the sun was shining… and the occasional cool breeze […]
Every now and then it strikes me all over again how much I love living in this particular lovely corner of the world, and how very lucky I am to be able to get outdoors nearly every day and enjoy it. This proud little sparrow and I just can’t help singing the praises of living near Lake Natoma!
