Spring Has Sprung

Posted by terrepruitt on March 24, 2017

We ended up getting a good amount of rain over the last few months.  And here it is Spring.  This is the tree in our front yard.  I took this last week.  Today it is not bright and blue.  The driveway looks like it has snowed a little bit with all of the fallen petals.  The yard smells great.  Big large balls of blossoms.

Blossoming tree for this week’s Friday Photo.

Tea Favorites

Posted by terrepruitt on March 17, 2017

Ahh, these are two teas that I love.  I have been drinking more tea than coffee lately.  I am not a morning person so on days I teach Nia I usually just get up in time enough to play with the cats for a bit, figure out what I am teaching in Nia (if I haven’t done it the night before), and get ready and go.  I don’t get up early enough to sit have breakfast and a cup of coffee.  Since on most days I either teach yoga or stretch right after Nia, I don’t get home until after noon.  And if I have errands to run it is even later in the day.  For me drinking coffee that late is just not good – it doesn’t allow me to get to bed in the same day that I got up.  So I drink decaffeinated tea.  There are two of my favorites.  I cannot say whether they actually help with my immune system or stress, but I like them.  Although, my dad had a lot of tea so recently I have actually been drinking some of the ones he had.  One is a Chai, which has caffeine.  And the other is Ginger, which is decaffeinated, and rather nice.  These are still two of my favs.

Tea for my Friday Photo.  Do you have a favorite tea?  What is it?

Floating Flowers

Posted by terrepruitt on March 10, 2017

Have you ever been out to eat and they put flowers on your food?  Well, these are from that.  But I don’t remember where we were.  I just remember loving the orchids and wanting to keep ’em.  So I put them in this bowl so that we could enjoy them for a little longer.  This picture is actually from August 2015.  As I said, I started this feature because sometimes I have pictures that I want to post and they could be old ones.

So here are some orchids in a bowl from 2015 for this Friday’s Friday Photo.

Dancing Metal Children

Posted by terrepruitt on March 3, 2017

Last year we saw a play.  It was good. It was a two-person play.  Those are always interesting.  It was called The Velocity of Autumn.  A friend had given us tickets.  It was at the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts.  We had planned for a lot of traffic, and surprisingly there wasn’t as much as we had thought, so we arrived very early at the theater.  They weren’t even letting people in.  So we walked around a bit.  I liked this sculpture that was on the grounds.  I chose to think of them as children dancing through the flowers, although it does look like they are walking.  But it could just be part of the dance.  I thought I would share it as a Friday Photo.

A Fresh Scent For A Friday

Posted by terrepruitt on February 24, 2017

Isn’t this cute?  I received this from a friend and Nia student for Christmas last year.  She found the little purses and filled them with lavender.  They are really cool because the top is velcro so the lavender can be replaced when needed.  I just love it so much.  I thought it was so cute I wanted to post it.  The sequins make it sparkly and you know that I love the sparkles!

I am sharing this cuteness as my Friday Photo.  How was your Friday?

Beautiful Blue Sky

Posted by terrepruitt on February 17, 2017

This was taken on a beautiful day in Los Gatos.  It was a super hot day, but it was still a beautiful day.  It was at a festival and we were sitting on the grass enjoying the band.  We were celebrating a friend’s birthday.  I laid down to enjoy the sky.  It was so blue and so beautiful.  Here’s for those who might want to see some blue sky.

Friday Photo.

Sweet Valentine’s Day Treat

Posted by terrepruitt on February 10, 2017

My hubby and I don’t normally go out ON Valentine’s Day, too crowded and too expensive (the restaurants that jack up prices or only serve prix fixe).  I can’t remember what we did last year.  It was a Sunday so perhaps we were out already and just decided to eat out.  I thought we had been out eating.  But I remember being out and coming home thinking I wish I had some chocolate.   Lo and behold I had a Valentine’s Day treat bag from a friend.  Or perhaps she came over and dropped it off?  I don’t remember exactly, but I do remember that John was asleep so I didn’t have to share! I do remember that I thought her giving me that was the best thing ever at the time.  It was so great and it “hit the spot” I took a picture of it.  That cookie was so good.  I did actually eat half of the cookie and half of the pretzel, leaving the other half for John.

Since Valentine’s Day is around the corner, I thought I would share this for my Friday Photo.

Not Quite A Capture Of The Beauty I Saw

Posted by terrepruitt on February 3, 2017

For me, since I am not a photographer and I don’t take breath taking pictures, what I do take just doesn’t convey the beauty I am trying to capture.  But hopefully you can see it as pretty.  But it was really beautiful.  Especially since we hadn’t seen sun for a few days . . . which for us, in the Bay Area is an unusual occurrence.  I do love the rain, but this was a beautiful sight.

Here is my latest Friday Photo.

A Friday Flower

Posted by terrepruitt on January 27, 2017

I love our yard roses.  I have hundreds of pictures of them.  I post some pictures on Facebook or even twitter, but I don’t like to just fill up my feed(s) with them.  I mean, I wouldn’t mind, but I think that would annoy people.  So I am sharing one here.  This is from April of 2016.

In case you are wondering . . . they smell GREAT!

Random “Love” Sightings

Posted by terrepruitt on January 20, 2017

I saw this on a chair at the community center in San Jose where I teach Nia.  I thought it was cute.  I figured I would post it later to Facebook and never got around to it.  I saved it on my phone and whenever I saw it, it made me smile.  So I thought I could post it and it would make you smile.

A random heart for a Friday Photo.
