bicycle daydreams

The bicycle, the bicycle surely,
should always be the vehicle
of novelists and poets.

for the beauty of the earth

For the beauty of the earth,
for the glory of the skies,
for the love which from our birth
over and around us lies;
Lord of all, to thee we raise
this our hymn of grateful praise.

For as the soil makes the sprout come up

and a garden causes seeds to grow,

so the Sovereign LORD

will make righteousness and praise

spring up before all nations.

Isaiah 61:11

"No eye has seen,
no ear has heard,
no mind has conceived
what God has prepared
for those who love him."
~1 Corinthians 2:9

happy little bluebirds

I got a new telephoto lens,
and I have been snapping pics
<Left and Right>
of the bluebirds
that visit in mY bAcKyArD...
and I'm having FuN editing...
Do bluebirds always have to be blue? :)
Oh, I do delight in the beauty of God's creation!
“For since the creation of the world
God’s invisible qualities -
his eternal power and divine nature -
have been clearly seen,
being understood from what has been made,
so that men are without excuse.”
Romans 1:20

hallmark, step aside! :)

My colleague at school has several breeds of chickens.
She often shares their eggs with me.
At Eastertime she made sure to include a nice variety of colors.
To thank her, I made up a set of notecards from pics that I had taken of them. I started with:
my photos
an inexpensive set of white stationery with matching envelopes,
a set of photo corners
(I really wanted white, but couldn't find them, so settled for greens and blues,
which, as it turns out, I really liked!:)),
and organdy ribbon.

I chose several of my favorites, edited them and added text at, then,
I tucked the pics into the photo corners and carefully glued them to the stationery.

Choose a half dozen to give and
place the card that says Thank you" on top.
Tie with ribbon.

Easy peasy lemon squeezy!

p.s. my friend really liked them! {sigh}

happy may day

I'm off to deliver a may basket to my sweet mom.
Wishing you a May Day that's filled with delight! "The May-pole is up,
Now give me the cup;
I'll drink to the garlands around it;
But first unto those
Whose hands did compose
The glory of flowers that crown'd it."
- Robert Herrick, The Maypole, 1660
