Simple Pleasures


Weekly Photo Challenge: Carefree

Did you have
a happy childhood?
They asked.
I asked back.
I suppose I
never knew
it has ended.

-Tyler Knott Gregson (Typewriter series)



Companion (Weekly photo challenge)

Weekly photo challenge: companion


“Just the knowledge that a good book is awaiting one at the end of a long day makes the day happier.”
-Kathleen Norris

I find that few things are as consistently there for you whenever you need them to be as a book.  Friendships change and evolve and occasionally wither away but a well loved book is the most constant companion one could possibly ask for.  Even the best of friends can’t whisk you away to a new world the way a book can with a few flips of its pages.


This is my dad and my late friend, Snickers.  This was my baby’s first and last trip to the ocean.  A dear companion whom I miss dearly.

Curves (Weekly photo challenge)

Weekly photo challenge: Curves




1.) a ferris wheel at the local rodeo I attended this evening.  


2.) Apparently, I have a thing for broken down farm equipment.  I swear, every time I see some, I have to stop and photograph it.  I already have shots of three separate old wagons and now this.  I think it was once part of a harvester or maybe something that tills the soil.  Not really sure.  


3.) Yes, I know I posted a picture of the moon recently but hey, this one’s fuller and in daylight! 


There.  My contribution to the weekly photo challenge.  🙂  Have a good week!
