New Blog

Well, I'm officially retired and I decided to start a new blog.

If you want to follow my ramblings, come on over and check it out-A Little Bit of This and That.

This week's Macro Monday theme was Two and it couldn't be any type of flower or insect. I'm finding sewing supplies to be great content for macro pictures. These two spools are in an old sewing box I received many years ago. The old spools have so much more character than the new ones.

This is the other photo I considered for the theme.

Macro Mondays

Well, I certainly am not keeping up with a photo a day! But I am keeping up with the Macro Monday challenge this year. It has recently changed its rules from two photos a week to one. I'm good with that change! Instead of trying to catch up on a photo a day I am just going to post my missing
Macro Monday shots in this post.

Last Wednesday Gertie lost her battle to cancer. Eight months ago we were told to take her home and make her as comfortable as possible. We didn't expect her to last as long as she did. She was a special girl and she is deeply missed. This is a little tribute I put together.

February 2-We've been working on this since the final days of December.

February 3-Gertie's final walk around the yard. Such a sad day.

January 22

About once a week a student stops by to share a birthday treat, hoping for a trinket as a trade. I always take one, hoping it will get the student back to class a little quicker. Usually I'll pass the treat onto someone else at the end of the day, the exception being halfmoons, they are too hard to resist!
