Losing your house key on the trail would be among the top five worst  things ever to lose on the trail!

Thankfully, someone found it and placed in spot it is hoped to be found.

Lost in the Wild

I hope the person that lost this was able to retrace their movements to here and reclaim the key that was lost the wild.

Merry Christmas!

I just wanted to take a moment to say MERRY CHRISTMAS! to all of you who celebrate it. I hope your holiday is wonderful, and filled with love, and lots of laughter.

Having a little one in the house has given me an opportunity to watch a favorite Holiday movie.  Frosty the Snowman.  I enjoy this movie and song so much I had to add the ornament to tree.

So, what’s going on at my house besides watching the old Christmas animated movies?

I’ve shared with some of you about my tradition of putting my collection of stuffed bears, and animals around the tree as soon as the tree goes up in December.  Part of that tradition is that the bears and animals leave sometime before Christmas. They leave a note on the tree telling us that Santa really needed their help to get all the final things ready for his most important flight of the year.

I woke up yesterday morning and they were gone. The note was on the tree saying they’d gone to the North Pole to help Santa Claus and Elves make ready for Christmas.  They thanked us for understanding, and assured us they’d be home soon, and signed their note with lots of ♥ and paw prints. 🙂

#1 Grandson who just turned 5 this week is a bit concerned about their departure and is anxiously waiting for Santa and the Bears, and other animals to return. He is worried about the Bear Cookie Jar that went too. He’s worried it might get broken.  I hope it doesn’t, but I’m sure Santa can fix him if it were to get broken. 🙂

Big Baby Boy, and the Dark Haired Beauty flew in last night. We’re all excited to have them home for Christmas.  Dark Haired Beauty is the reigning 2016 champion of the game  Mexican Train a family favorite.  We’ll see if she can be unseated this year.

Baby Girl’s sofa, Coffee, and end tables arrived yesterday.  She’s very  relieved that we all won’t be sitting on the floor while she hosts her very first Christmas in her very first apartment.

Our new house has a renter. I’ve still got mixed feelings about that as I’d love to be living there; we can’t right now, but things are lining up.

While I haven’t been too chatty with my posts this year good things are happening here.  He-Man and I are beaming with joy, and feel very blessed for it’s been a really great year so far. (knocking on wood!) 🙂

I’ll be back next week with Wordless Wednesday, but will be on a wee break til then spending time with my children, and Grandson.

If you don’t celebrate Christmas I hope you find some delight in the Holiday joy, lights, decorations, and enjoy a day off. 🙂

MERRY CHRISTMAS! xx

I took my D810 mounted with my LensBaby Composer Pro out for a walk looking for flowers in the neighborhood the other day.   I put the Soft Focus Optic in the Composer along with the 16mm macro adapter; here’s a few images from that walk.

Arizona Sunflower at f/2- I love that blur!

a Rose f/4- I wanted to get a bit more in focus so stopped it down a stop.

It looks like my LensBaby will get along fine with the D810.

I’m off for a “ladies  long week-end” with a good friend. We plan to hike in the mountains by a lake, and do a lot of photography. I hope the sky is clear so we can photograph the stars at least one night.

I hope you all have a lovely week-end. I’ll catch up when I return.

White Yarrow- from a quick hike Sunday morning. I went early while the wind was calm. I was the only person on the trail both going and coming. It was wonderful having the hills to myself for just a little while.
