Remembering . . .

Somehow I got to going through a bunch of my old photo files, and found a number of favorites I thought I would share with you.  And yes, if you have been reading my blog for very long, you have most likely seen them before, but that's okay.  These are my memories, after all!

This is when the three other people who live here are most happy.  My hubby 'daddy' is on the recliner, Bailey in his lap, and Bessie laying beside him.  They are totally at rest and at peace.  {sigh}

A picture of one of my favorite roses "Glowing Peace".  We bought the bush in 2004 after we found out they had found no more cancer during my surgery.  That's what we were  -  "glowing with peace, and joy!"

The day I got my Trikke - trying to figure it out.  That was 3 years ago, and I still love it, but just don't get to ride it often enough.

Oscar the cat.  I was trying to work on the computer and he jumped up on the desk, laid down and went to sleep.  "Never mind me!"  Anyway, I moved the mouse a bit to where you see it, and he never moved.  I loved Oscar, but I love it so much more that he now lives with someone else!

One cool hubby!  With our canoe on Lake Lanier.

I don't do much scrapbooking, but I did this layout for a scrapbooking challenge a few years ago.  that is me, dressed for our choral concert in 1969.  I was so proud - mama made that dress and I loved it!  I even got flowers and had my hair put up by a 'beautician'.  How cool was that!!!

Hubby and me at Whitewater Falls near the SC/NC border south of Cashiers, NC.

I know it's hard to see, but if you look just above and to the left of the top of the bird feeder you can see a male Rose Breasted Grosbeak, and up above him a couple of limbs is his mate.  I've only seen them here that one time!

The needlework tray I made to carry on road trips.  It's a partical board tray I painted, used 1" foam core board wrapped in batting, then gingham fabric, then plastic sheeting.  The pillow on the left side is a pin/needle cushion which is held on with velcro.  I still use it regularly!

My delicious chicken pot pie.  You can find the recipe HERE.

A yellow magnolia bloom I saw at a nursery in Chattanooga last year.  It's so beautiful!

Two beautiful butterflies sharing a buddleia bloom. They were just beautiful, too!

My favorite picture of me - ever!  My great grandmother "Ma Cook" made that dress for me!

A pretty hummer in front of our 'former' camellia bush.

Hubby at one of our frequent picnics - this one somewhere in TN (I think!).

One of my favorite meals, especially for a picnic!

A daddy cardinal feeding his baby last summer - right outside our front door!

My baby girl, Bailey Sue, all wrapped up in my house robe, watching me on the computer.

Ribs - yum!  You can find MY recipe for rib rub HERE.

It's hard to believe this was taken just last month!!!  This is a pair (male right, female left) of house finches, trying to stay warm.

I hope you have enjoyed my walk through memory lane!  I thought I had posted the recipe for that chicken salad in the pic above, but I couldn't find the blog post.  Now I'll have to make it soon so I can post it on here!  Have a great day everyone!  Becky
