An Hallelujah and Blessings of the season

I must admit this is one of my favourite times of the year, with it’s lights and music, gift giving and good will, bringing hope and renewal to us all from pagan times to Christianity. I have fallen behind in blogging with all the work that has needed doing in the new place but also other…

Monochrome Madness and Christmas coming

The end of the year is fast approaching and I can’t believe Christmas is once again around the corner. I am trying as usual to catch up in the blog world. I so hope it snows out here on the mountain but nothing like that is in sight yet. One thing is certain.  It’s been an…

Monochrome Madness is here again

It looks like it will be Christmas before I’m all caught up and in the blogging rhythm again with newer material. Organizing and fixing things has been time consuming along with other ongoing family matters. Here is my submission to Leanne Cole’s MM 3-27 which is especially wonderful this week.

Monochrome Madness (3-12) and other views

The next two months will be busy ones as I at last am moving! I’ll be out further into the suburbs- off a country road, on a hillside! So as I am not posting as frequently I will combine my post again with Leanne’s theme and my own theme of views from different places.  For…

Monochrome Madness and How Green is the Valley

My visit to the beautiful Okanagan and Similkameen Valleys of the interior of BC is the focus of this week’s post and Monochrome Madness (3-1) with Leanne Cole.  This is the first week of the third year of MM!!! We drove up to my brother’s place in the town of Penticton this weekend and the…
