I couldn't think of anything worthwhile to write about, so here is a collection of random photos from around my house!
. . .Happy weekend. . .
Ruby turns 1 on the 13th November, isn't she gorgeous! She is the cuddliest cat I know.
The my youngest son turned 18 on Thursday and all he wanted was books about cichlids (a particular group of fish breeds). In fact he is MAD about fish, it is all he talks about!
Here are two of his cichlids.
These are my new Russian Dolls - but they do have a very practical use, they are measuring cups. My last set of measuring cups were 24 years old, about time to upgrade.
I was outside taking photos of the garden with Charlie and she saw a bird fly over, for around 30 seconds she stood on her back leg watching it.
Stepping Heavenward, a novel written in 1880 by Elizabeth Prentiss and is about a young woman's journey through life from teenager to woman. It is written in the form of a journal and shares Katy's coming to faith in Christ and then walking the life of faith with its many ups and downs, struggles, trying to balance the duties of marriage and motherhood, stretching a meager income for a growing family etc.. Sound familiar. I am thoroughly enjoying it and would recommend it to others. Elisabeth Elliot is always an enjoyable read.
A flower from my garden, I just love the yellow. These flowers drop seeds on the ground and hundreds of little plants spring up. As a result I have a few of these shrubs around the garden adding colour.
This is a photo of my grandfather (Fredrick) taken when I was a little girl at one of our family picnics. This is how I remember him. He died when I was 7 years old. He use to call me "lassie" and my brother "laddie" but I would get cross and say "that isn't my name, my name is Joanne"!! He was a proud Scotsman and the perfect gentleman.
