May Yard

Quail in the yard and danger in the skies.

We are wrapping up May this weekend. Lots of good hope for June!

Our little 3 year old grand Addy is mastering her braking skills and can now ride her bike down the driveway. Our little 1 year old Jaymison has mastered the indoor Little Tykes slide. He climbs up and slides down without assistance, laughing with joy with this new skill. I’ll get a photo soon.

Have a great Friday y’all. We are planning on heading to our favorite Mexican Restaurant today! Do you have any plans for the last weekend in May?

Quotes of the week:

“No Christ in your sermon, sir? Then go home, and never preach again until you have something worth preaching.” C. H. Spurgeon

“God does not need us. We need Him. And any man who is preaching a gospel that says that God needs us is preaching a different gospel.” Justin Peters

“People may love a God of their own imaginations, when they are far from loving such a God as reigns in heaven.” Jonathon Edwards

“We are being transformed into the image of Christ, not a better me.” Dennis Wilkening

9 Months!

Yesterday our little Jaymison Joshua reached his 9 month mark! These photos were put together by JJ’s mommy. Tonight I hope to capture some shots of him with my camera. That isn’t an easy proposition when we are hosting the birthday dinner party for Dan and Jamie. I’ll keep my camera out in the open so I remember!

Here’s what the landscape looks like this week from our country bungalow.

I’m so thankful for our window views and our trees!

The cake is out of the oven. The table is set. (The theme of my table is frosty with the hope of Spring) The marinade is on the chicken. The dishwasher is emptied so we can fill it again. I’ll prep the veggies that will be roasted on a sheet pan with the chicken on the Traeger later this afternoon and toss the salad just before we eat. Now I’m off to wrap the presents!

Happy Birthday Party Friday everyone.

Photobucket is holding all my photos that I stored on their site from 2007-2015 hostage replacing them with ugly grey and black boxes and asking for a large ransom to retrieve them. It is a slow process to go through all my posts deleting the ugly boxes.

Window Views from the Getty Museum

Window Views and Doors Too is a fun weekly meme with it’s own blog site hosted by Mary the Professor. Click on over and join in the fun showing us some doors and windows you’ve found.

My views this week are windows. They are from the Getty Museum in Los Angeles, California.

This is the main lobby that you first enter after coming up the hill from the parking structure on a tram.

 

There are a few magnificent “Period” Rooms with great furnishings and paneling.

 

The outside views are spectacular, too.

I highly recommend a visit to this Museum if you are ever in the Los Angeles Area. If you scroll down you can see more posts about the Getty Museum.

Nine of the ladies in my family and our little 1 month old Grand niece met for tea on Saturday. I took some shots of the windows while we were there. I liked the tea cups hanging in the window…

Window Views ~ Washington State Ferry

My Window Views this week were all taken on a Washington State Ferry from Anacortes, through the San Juan Islands to Sidney on Vancouver Island, Canada.

 

Our ride was mostly misty, moisty, foggy…

 

 

 

Another Ferry through the mist…

 

As we approached Vancouver Island things got brighter.

Window Views ~ Forest Lawn Glendale

Dear and I were meeting his brother and wife at the Tam O Shanter Restaurant in Los Angeles on Sunday for brunch. We were early and dropped in at Forest Lawn Glendale to see some of their beautiful churches and to walk through their museum. These are some window views from the park.

Window Views ~ Cranberry Cottage

Last week my niece and I stopped at the Cranberry Cottage in Bothell. This shop is in an old rickety farmhouse and has so much charm. There is a combination of new and old merchandise to purchase.

 

 

This fun vintage trailer was in the front yard of the Cottage. The rest of my window views are from inside of this little trailer.

Note: Some of you have asked so I just wanted to add that I didn’t buy anything here on this day…
