Sunday Sevens – Week 92 ( I think? )

Good afternoon everyone and welcome to my latest version (and I’ve no idea what the real number is, let alone my own) of Sunday Sevens, invented by Natalie, over at Threads and Bobbins. Check out the non-rules, and see if you’d like to join in.

It seems as if we’ve been housebound lately, but I do have some photos of short strolls and wanderings around the house and environs.

Feline Shenanigans

Breaking Bread


My hubby is quite the bread maker…this lumpy darling is my first loaf. Yum!

Cleaning Up


Lots of bare patches to fill in after recent street work was completed. One day as I watered, this little fellow jumped in for a quick shower.

Kiddie Garden


The children work this garden in the elementary school around the corner.

Empty Room

IMG_7190Ah yes, more renovating. Much as I would love this to become my dedicated sewing/dressing room, I believe it will be the new master bedroom.

Wise Words


This sign at the zoo is a bit hidden, I feel it should be more prominently displayed.

Out for a stroll


All kinds of families enjoy a nice summer outing.

Have a most marvelous week everyone!






Photo Challenge – Headgear

This week’s photo challenge is HEADGEAR. Several years ago, my then 8-year-old grandson and I were browsing through the Halloween Shop. He took this picture of what he thought was my best look!

And I’ve joined in for the first time with the Ronovan’s Weekly Haiku Challenge! This week’s prompts were TOP and LIGHT.


Photo Challenge – Door

This week’s Photo Challenge is DOOR. Beautiful doors abound, and I’ve selected two for you.

There are many, many old churches near my home. This one was built in either 1901 or 1915 (descriptions vary depending on the source). While most old churches have impressive entrances and beautiful doors, what I like about this one is the juxtaposition of old and new. Can you see it? The recently installed solar panel over the century-old doors.


A trip to NYC and Brooklyn produced this shot of the front entrance of the Brooklyn Public Library. This door takes the prize for sheer spectacle; my phone camera doesn’t do it justice. See the link above for information on the figures on columns, above the door, and the inscriptions. It’s worth the search. Where else will you find Brer Rabbit and Moby Dick together? And in gold?
