Birthday Irises

Posted by terrepruitt on May 26, 2017

I was looking through some photos and came across this one.  These were some fabulous flowers I received for my birthday last year.  They were so pretty.  They were also a very pleasant surprise.  So it is nice to have a photo to be reminded of them.  That is exactly what photos are for, right?  Reminding us of things . . . especially the good ones!

Birthday irises for today’s Friday Photo.

Fire In The Sky

Posted by terrepruitt on May 19, 2017

So this is an old photo, but I like it.  I am often treated to beautifully colored skies via my office window.  This was from 2014.  I makes me smile so I thought I would share it with you.  Perhaps it can make you smile.

Friday Photo of a colorful sky.

A Pretty Card

Posted by terrepruitt on May 12, 2017

Sometimes a pretty card makes a pretty photo.  I was wondering what to post today and as I was cleaning – strike that, who am I kidding, my desk is never clean – as I was straightening up my desk I came across this.  It is so pretty.  And is very sweet.  I happen to receive it when I was up at my dad’s house for several days going through the house.  It was a very nice (and timely) surprise.  I will probably end up posting pictures of what it accompanied because that is stunningly beautiful.

Happy Friday!

Hello, for today’s Friday Photo.

Yoga Studio Walls

Posted by terrepruitt on May 5, 2017

Ah, I think this is the perfect time to post this picture since I just went to a workshop at Mind Body Zone.  I really need to get back to the studio for yoga regularly.  This is a wall in the studio.  That is one thing that is kind of a misfortune in the places that I teach yoga, there is no wall space.  Well, I shouldn’t say NO wall space, I should say ENOUGH wall space.  There is not enough wall space for each student in the class to have a spot so we can use the wall.  That is a great thing about a studio that is just for yoga, the ones I have been to have a lot of wall space because using the wall can be a great tool.  The wall can be just like a prop.  It can really help in some poses.  It can definitely help you sense the poses in a different way!

Here I am sharing a photo of the wall for my latest Friday Photo.

Little Blue Bird of Happiness

Posted by terrepruitt on April 28, 2017

This is the Little Blue Bird of Happiness.  He is little and he does make me happy.  A friend gave me this.  It came with a little piece of paper.  I kept the paper, of course, but I don’t know where it is, of course.  But I am pretty sure it talked about the Blue Bird of Happiness.  This guy is so cute.  He is no bigger than a dime.  He is TINY.  He is so cute, he does make me happy.  I had him on the counter, but my husband suggested I put him elsewhere.  Just in case our cats were somewhere they shouldn’t be doing something they shouldn’t be doing.  That could result in the loss of my little bird.  He is so cute!

What do you think of my little bird?  I thought it would be a nice Friday Photo.

A Yellow Rose

Posted by terrepruitt on April 21, 2017

I looked outside this morning when a squirrel came to ask for nuts.  When I looked outside I saw this beauty.  I told myself that I needed to remember to take a picture of it.  I was thinking I would use it for my Friday Photo today.  Then I thought I shouldn’t do that because I just did a flower photo.  But, I didn’t JUST post a flower photo, it was two weeks ago.  And it IS the season.  And I did say that I would be posting a lot of flowers, cats, and birds . . . so . . . here ya go.  A beautiful rose from our yard.  I decided to cut it and bring it inside.

More Of Heart Shaped Things

Posted by terrepruitt on April 14, 2017

Ha!  I’ve been holding onto this one for a long time.  I took this back in September of 2014.  See what I mean about having photos that I want to post, but don’t know where.  I remember having noticed this – it looks like a heart to me – because there had been a slew of pictures from people seeing hearts in things.  I was so excited to have finally seen one.  But then when I looked at it as I was going to post it I thought I was really reaching to see a heart.  What do you think?

Well, it is at least worthy of a Friday Photo.

Rose Bush Gone Wild

Posted by terrepruitt on April 7, 2017

I don’t know how to trim rose bushes.  I don’t know how and I don’t know when.  I know there is a specific time of the year to do it and I know there is a way to do it.  I just go out there when the bush is looking ugly and bothering me and I hack at it.  My hubby grabs the dead roses and just pulls them off, but I like to cut them off.  Recently it was looking rather wild so last week I went out and cut off the dead roses and some of the dead branches.  Then we were gone over the weekend and we came back to a rose bush explosion!  So excited.  I went out and cut some roses off to bring inside.  So we have roses in the house.  And the bush still has a lot, so we have roses outside.  I love our roses.  So I am sure this will not be the only Friday Photo of them.

As I said in the beginning; there will be a lot of cats, birds, and flowers.

Looks Like Spring

Posted by terrepruitt on March 31, 2017

This was taken early last year, it was not yet spring.  I was so surprised at how pretty this bush was that I took a picture.  I don’t go into that yard much — actually ever, it seems.  I mean, I actually don’t think I have been in it since I took this picture.  Seriously.  Ok, so I just went to the yard and looked at it.  Because I really hadn’t since last February.  The plant/bush is still there, in fact it looks larger, but it does not have any blooms at this time.  I am glad I caught it in full bloom.  It really is lovely.

Look at that, two “springey” looking pictures in a row for my Friday Photo.  Even though this one was technically from winter and it was last year.  I still like it.  I hope you enjoy it, too!

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.
