 The Rio Grande Gorge | What Joy Is Mine

(The Rio Grande Gorge. NCPhotography)

Friends…I enjoyed a wonderful weekend with my family despite the fact that my Love spent one of the nights in the ER. He is fine and healing but it was not how we wanted to spend any of our time on our weekend trip getaway with extended family, not to mention the scare. So, what I had planned to share with you today didn’t get done. However, I will be sharing that with you this week along with a fabulous giveaway. Keep your eyes peeled for that! Until then, I look forward to what you will share this week.

(The photo above I took this weekend. This gorge is quite the sight.)

Monday’s Musings #159 & A New Scripture Print

Psalm 54:4 | What Joy Is Mine/NCPhotography

Well, this photo is blooms from our plum tree. A couple of weeks ago when it was in full bloom, it was surrounded by bees. I just happen to catch a few buzzing around. This shot is one of my favorites. Do you see the bee hard at work? It made me think how the Lord always provides for His creation. If He does for them, how much more will He for us? The Lord upholds us daily. You can see my other prints in Our Boutique. And if you haven’t yet, sign up for our newsletter. I have been wanting to offer my prints for a limited special price and our newsletter subscribers will get first wind of that when I do. Just saying.

Now onto to the party! I spent some of my Sunday reading some great posts. You all rock! Thank you for the encouragement friends. Now what will you share with us this week?

Monday’s Musings #158 & Spring Time

 Canada Geese

 Canada Geese invade our waters in the spring time. Beautiful bird, right?

Canada Goose

Spring is here! I can hardly believe it myself. The plum trees in my yard are in bloom and our weeping willow tree is turning green. We’ve also had more high winds which are not my favorite weather choice especially since I wear contacts. Have you ever sat through a wind storm with contacts? It’s awful.

Even with the weather being so nice, planting my garden is still on hold. It always seems to happen that we get one more freeze before winter says its final good by for the year. So, we usually don’t plant anything until April just to be safe. But I am excited about getting that going. Do you plant a garden? Have you started?

Another bonus about spring being here is more baseball. Yesiree! We are Dodger fans and enjoy watching them play. We also have a local team we go see when we can. Do you watch baseball? Do you have a favorite team?

Lastly, spring means more flowing skirts and pretty dresses. I know some of you wear skirts during the winter and I do, too, but being warm is my focus during winter so at times pants are in order. But with spring, I am all skirts and dresses except when I exercise and play tennis.

How do you usher in spring time?

Monday’s Musings #157 & A Regency Ball

Regency Ball 2015

This past Friday evening I attended a Regency Ball with my daughter and our friends. This is the second year we’ve gone and we always have a great time. First, we make our gowns for the event. Though last time I made my own dress, this year my sweet daughter made mine and hers. What you see me wearing in the photo is the beautiful dress she made. My daughter even styled my hair. She just wanted me to look like right out of the regency era and I think she pulled it off well.

Prior to the ball, we attended two dance practice sessions to learn the dances of the era. All dances are group oriented with parents included. (Think Pride and Prejudice movie.) I love that about this ball. In addition, modesty is stressed for clothing with emphasis on dressing of that time. We always attend as a family just as they did during this period of history. It’s a real good replacement for today’s prom. We had a sweet time.

Well, it’s time to share posts with one another. How will you encourage each other this week?
