Happy Independence Day!


Happy Independence Day! 

I just love this picture!  I went looking for something to post on here, since I don't have pictures of my own, and when I saw this picture I smiled big...real big!  There were lots of pictures with children and flags and fireworks but there was something about this one.  This little lady looks truly happy to be waving that flag!  Independence Day probably means more to her than it does to anyone under the age of 50!  

So, how are you?  We have been busy since I last posted.  Nothing out of the ordinary but busy none the less.  We made a quick weekend trip to Texas, to see my inlaws, about two weeks ago.  That is always a whirlwind trip because we only get to visit for one day.  No time to do anything like antiquing or sight-seeing.  Of course, having lived all over Texas, I have pretty much seen it all but it would still be fun to see the new things!

Of course, our place keeps us busy with mowing and cleaning barns and coops!  Just about the time we get the mowing done, it is time to start over!  I got out there, one day, and shoveled out the goat barn.  Betty goat was so happy she immediately ran in and pooped right in the middle of the newly strewn pine chips!  I love my animals...really I do!  

My little container garden isn't producing at all!  I planted a bunch of tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, and eggplant.  We haven't gotten one thing off of those plants.  I highly suspect the guineas and chickens are pulling the blooms off and eating them!  Fortunately, I have some new potatoes growing!  I'm sure if they could get to those they would eat them too!  Maybe...just maybe...I will get at least one green tomato to fry!  

So, why do I not have picture, of my own, to share?  Well, I pulled out my old film cameras and have been playing with them.  I haven't gotten them developed yet but when I do I will share.  There is just something about pictures taken with film that seems pure and wholesome!  My weirdness is showing, isn't it!!!???  Don't get me wrong, I love my fancy digital cameras, but isn't it fun to get the film developed to see what you captured in a shot and not always knowing immediately?  Sometimes, I think the digital cameras make me even more crazy about perfection!  With film cameras you never know how a picture will turn out and what you get is what you get!  No going back to get the perfect picture!  Makes life a little less stressful, don't you think?

Well anyways, I pray your 4th of July is safe, happy, and full of the Lord's blessings!

Grace & Peace

  3. I do love the picture! Gosh, I hadn't thought about having to develop film in ages. Used to, back in the 50's, my sister had a camera. She would take a roll of pictures and sometimes the film would lay around for a year before some of us would get it developed. It was always a surprise and fun to see the pictures. I love those BIG sunflowers in your last post!

    1. It has been at least ten years since I picked up those old film cameras. I can't wait to see what is on the rolls of film that were left in the camera! Thank you so much for visiting!
