Reports from Joanne in St. Augustine Florida – Guest Blog

Here is what is happening with my friend Joanne in St. Augustine.

A guest blog report in gallery form.   It was actually Joanne’s  idea to post photos from friends in different locations showing what they have been doing as they shelter in place and are isolated from friends and family.  Since she has been updating me daily I’m a bit overwhelmed cause she has been doing A LOT.   Her to do list and the documentation of it is lengthy.  Here are some of the photos that tell the story of her activities in St. Augustine Florida (where my sister and I visited just last month) Thanks for sharing Joanne.  I am posting your crossword still life first.

It tells a story all by itself. She titles them Isolation Day Activities.  Here’s the gallery with her photos.  One thing I can tell you for sure is that is a lot brighter where she is than Pittsburgh PA.

These photos were taken throughout the week, not just one day. Phew!

Then she and Dan visited through a sliding glass door window

Communication Via Photographs from Readers

Today’s post features GUEST Bloggers Photographs from different friends who follow my blog

 

One of the most satisfying aspects of keeping a blog is the response from readers.

The likes, the comments and the emails.  The emails and messages with photos attached are always a pleasure to receive.

Some will say they saw something and they knew I would have photographed it.

From Guest Blogger Bobbie in Kansas says  “South Lake Park, Overland Park, Kansas.  I noticed it driving to work the other morning and thought it was a swan mixed up with the geese, but could not stop as I had to be in the hospital, but was happy to see them yesterday on the way home.  It has red eyes, and light colored feet and bill. The other geese were very protective and I could not get close.”

Vincie knit this soft and pretty toddler blanket and set me a photo so I could see how the pattern was working out. I am making a similar blanket.

From Arleen

“You are rubbing off on me–I sat down to dinner a couple of weeks ago and caught a pretty reflection in my wine glass. I of course thought “If Ruth were here, she’d be pulling out her camera and taking a picture!” So, I did it for you! : ) Let me know what you think! I used one with a flash, one without.”                            Flash or no flash?
