WORKIN & DREAMIN

This is what I have been up to lately. Turning flower gardens into lawn because I just can't keep up with all the weeds! The above shot shows the area I have already rototilled and raked. It still needs a few adjustments before grass seed. You can see the trunk of the old Gravenstein tree in this shot.
This is the area above the Gravenstein tree that I have gotten partly done but took the picture before then. Just one more day of tilling I think, then several days of raking, smoothing and seeding. WHEW!
I am taking today off just as I did over the week end. I am going to the beach with my sisters and this evening I am going to a concert where my Great Granddaughter Julia is playing her violin.
The following pictures are for dreaming.


My daughter Cyndi took this picture a few weeks ago at Hobuck Beach, in Washington State. Thanks Cyndi!

My Niece Anne took this one at Oroville, Washington where she goes to dredge for gold. Thanks Anne!

I took this one several years ago. My mom is standing in the sunset at Boulevard Park in Bellingham, Washington.




Here's another by Cyndi. A clump of flowers in the California Desert. It's hard for me to imagine anything so colorful growing in the sand. Thanks again Cyndi!

When my girls lived in San Diego I was able to visit them several times and we always took a day for visiting the beach. One of my favorite places!

California sunsets are a sight to behold. I was told the reason they are so colorful is because of the pollution, but I'd rather think the Lord painted a colorful picture.

This is Torrey Pines Beach. The evening this picture was taken was my last night in California. My daughter and I were enjoying time together and I was taking pictures.
There is a very interesting story about that evening on the beach that I will post next time.

My youngest sister and I used to go camping in Eastern Washington . One day we took a drive to a place called Lion Rock where the view was spectacular. I only had a 35 mil. camera then but sure wish I had had my Digital! We could actually see three snow topped mountains from there but only one shows in this shot.

Bellingham Bay.
I'm blessed that it's only about five minutes away from my house. I grew up playing on the beach there and now here I am a great grandma and I'm still playing there, only now with a camera in my hand.

The last photo in this post is another sunset on Bellingham Bay.
I hope you have enjoyed a little dreaming time.
~~~
May our Lord keep you always in His loving care and may he take you on a guided tour of his awesome creations.
