From my Camera: Celebrating Winter
It has been a rough
winter. I had to pack to move because the property I live on sold to
developers. Well, now I celebrate because the deal fell through. I

The season has also been filled with not-so-special anniversaries that trigger PTSD and depression. By the grace of God and the love of my friends, I have passed through relatively OK. The worst is done.

I didn't have much Christmas. I even missed the family gathering. All

I grabbed a couple
of dolls I have 'weathering' on my front deck and thought I would see

thicker... maybe next time).
Nature rewarded me!
While I was out, a white heron appeared in the field.
I think it came to check out my neighbour's duck decoys!
I feel so blessed to
be a witness to such beauty.
And... the sheep are
baa-ck! I look forward to their yearly visits.

of the trees on the surface of a swimming pool. I like the
impressionistic feel the reflection gives.
I had fun with this
image and put it on Facebook with the text 'Catmobile!'
