I’m helping out with the grandkids this weekend.
At breakfast, I looked out the kitchen window and saw rays of sun.
Threw a coat over my pajamas, added my hat, laced up my boots, got my camera, and tried to capture some winter sun.
Worried about that groundhog seeing his shadow on Groundhog’s Day.

Frost pattern on wooden that didn’t get put inside in the fall
Swing Set Chains, one rubber coated,the other metal.
Serenity - continued. Finding photos to go with this week’s theme has been satisfying. Thanks for looking at today’s gallery of images that feel peaceful in a variety of ways.
Once you start looking for photographs in your archives that say “serenity”
-you think of more and you’re seeking the ones that make you feel calm and peaceful inside, just to look at them.
So you just go with it, like a raft on a gentle ocean wave.
One of the first images I captured with the new mirrorless camera when I was out in Ohio with the family for Christmas.
Granddaughter Anna with the reflected light from an iPad, no other light.
You don’t usually see the back of these decorations but we were in the Antique Store parking lot on East Pike in Norwich as we made our way back to Pittsburgh.
Shadowed I’ve a lot of shadows but not that many photos with “shadowed”
Okay Matthew. Good idea.
Here it is – thanks for the inspiration.
Sure beats my tired brown hat from last year.
And thanks to Molly for the Noro Kuryeon yarn and I used a double strand as the pattern called for bulky yarn.
This is the Handspun Ribbed Hat patternHandspun Ribbed Hat. I knit quite a few of these hats for Christmas with Rowan Undyed Chunky yarn, the color of the breed of sheep. Suffolk and Black Welsh.
(Adjustment- I knit it to 11″ so there is a nice length to fold up and it’s double over the ears ) and I use a size 9 circular needle 16″ length.
You may remember the “Dear Photograph ” post two Februarys ago.
My son Mark took this photo in my
living room where the red (faded to
Rose) couch sits.
My dad is holding him when the couch was in my parents’ living room in Philadelphia in 1976.
They are both so happy on this old photo.
Here is the series of “Dear Photographs” I experimented with a couple of years ago.
Not sure what the exact percentage might be, but many people really aren’t thinking they’d like their photograph taken. (Brides and homecoming/prom goers are definite exceptions)
Maybe people don’t mind taking it of themselves on a phone at a cool venue to share but sometimes you’re just not “feeling it”
Last year I received the Awkward Family Photo® Game but those photos can’t be recreated easily, even with intention.
Granddaughter Anna (11) likes to try with her siblings, giving them directions. We have fun but it doesn’t always rhyme.
Henry the Airedale adds some excitement and action, creates a blur, while sporting his Christmas tie.
