Before we went to Alaska we splurged on a new camera.
I can’t even tell you what model it is right now, because it is currently living up at the cabin for photos like THIS…
This mama deer came into the yard around 11am this morning, broad daylight, easy as you please as if she owned the place.
In a way, I guess the deer DO own the mountain.
We just moved in and put up plot lines and built houses and put in roads and called it our own.
But the deer own Buck Mountain.
We are thrilled with this camera and its abilities. This was taken THROUGH the window screen. Can you tell?
The camera has the ability to break apart certain elements and focus on others and we have never been able to get such wonderful shots.
Does she hear the camera click?
Check out those chin hairs! Ha!
Sweetie, we need to TALK!
Check out the eyelashes as well!
What a lovely lady!
I’m back home ---with a full day of desk work and order filling behind me. I was also able to pick up more of THESE:
Get in there, and Get it DONE!
On the gifted quilt front – remember I sent my friend THIS QUILT?
I firmly believe when a quilt is gifted that the recipient has full reign on what happens to that quilt. If you give someone a plant – there are no strings attached to that plant, and you can’t tell them where to display it or what do do with it.
The same for any quilt. It's a gift. Let it go. You don't own it anymore.
So – after spending two weeks in California settling her father’s affairs, laying him to rest, and doing all of that bookwork stuff to make sure her mom is good and taken care of, she returned home last night to Arizona and my box.
This afternoon I received the most wonderful email from her ---she loves it so much she wants to “HANG IT” and has the perfect spot, away from the sun and she will get to see it every day and it will bring her smiles and comfort.
The “inner me” wanted to say “But but but but –I want you to use it! I want to wrap you in it, I want you to feel the love in every piece” ---but I had to let those feelings go.
She loves it. She wants it in a prominent place in her home. It’s an honor for me to have my quilt displayed that way.
I cut the strings.
My quilt is now a wall hanging, and I am so happy that it gave her comfort and joy.
