Christmas Sleigh

Posted by terrepruitt on December 8, 2017

Oh, I love Christmas decorations. And I love mine. It is so fun to open them up every year. This is one of my favorites. I don’t remember where I got it, but I love it.

A sleigh for today’s Friday Photo.

Do you have a favorite Christmas decoration?

Another Thanksgiving Morning At The Beach

Posted by terrepruitt on November 24, 2017

The weather was great in Capitola yesterday, Thanksgiving 2017. The past two years we have been going “over the hill” (that is what we call it because we have to drive over a hill) for breakfast on Thanksgiving. The first year was easy. The second . . . not so much as we couldn’t find any place open that we wanted to go to. But we ended up where we didn’t know that we wanted to be and it was fine. This year all the places we called were not open, but we found a place serving breakfast anyway and it worked out ok. It was not hot nor cold. The temperature was great. But it was so bright, I couldn’t see to take pictures. I did take a few anyway . . . but I didn’t really know what they looked like. They turned out ok. Here is one shot from Twin Lakes for the Friday Photo.

Tiny Feather

Posted by terrepruitt on November 17, 2017

This just fascinates me. This is just a tiny feather from a hummingbird. I am always amazed at how tiny they are. The yellow flowers barely measure an inch at the widest point.

Pink Bag

Posted by terrepruitt on November 10, 2017

This is a bag made of recycled plastic. I bought it as a gift for a friend years ago. I thought it was cute. So I took a picture. Not a very good picture. But, it is definitely one of those pictures that I have no place to share.  I think that the cool thing about the bag is that it was made from recycled plastic bags.  But I don’t remember.  I bought it over a year ago and gifted it almost over a year ago.

Decorating With Hops

Posted by terrepruitt on November 3, 2017

Earlier this month we were needing dinner after working all day at my dad’s. We decided to try a brewery in town. Well, turns out three of the four breweries in town are not actual restaurants. They serve beer, I saw a food truck or two, but not a sit down restaurant. We ended up driving all the way across town . . . but it was way worth it. Either that or we were just so hungry the food was outstanding.  No, the food really was outstanding. I also really enjoyed their little table decoration.

This Friday Photo is a beer bottle with hops.

Old Timey Halloween

Posted by terrepruitt on October 27, 2017

I don’t know when this was.  I just found this. This is me and my brother.  I thought it would make a good near Halloween Friday Photo post. I do not remember him dressing up as a woman. And I don’t remember this particular time I was a gypsy. But I know I was a gypsy often because . . . . do you remember what Halloween costumes were like back then? If you don’t remember (because you are too young) they were NOT GOOD. NOTHING like costumes today. The masks were hard plastic and just so different from now-a-days. So I preferred the “homemade” costumes and there was nothing like a gypsy costume. A flowing skirt, lots of jewelry and MAKE-UP! Oh I was in heaven. As I said, I was a gypsy a few years.

Couldn’t Be Ignored

Posted by terrepruitt on October 20, 2017

There is always beauty.  We might be too preoccupied to see it.  We get sad, we get mad, we have all kinds of emotions and we get a lot of thoughts in our head that keep us from seeing it, but . . . it is always there.  It also depends on how strict your definition of beauty is.

I snapped this last year three days after I found my dad dead.  I felt kind of guilty because I was in awe of how gorgeous the day was.  Yet, I felt like I shouldn’t be able to be entranced by such beauty, like I should just be sad and not recognize it.  But I couldn’t do it.  I couldn’t let the wonder that God had created go ignored because I was sad.  So, I took a few pictures as my hubby was driving us . . .

I thought I would share this beautiful day for today’s Friday Photo.

Fall flowers

Posted by terrepruitt on October 13, 2017

Here is a photo of some pretty flowers we have in our house right now. I wanted something to bring in the fall. We have had some nice temps here to remind me it is fall, but I wanted something colorful!

Fall flowers for today’s Friday Photo.

Sweet Memory

Posted by terrepruitt on October 6, 2017

Awww. Here is my first little girl. This is Spot the Cat. I came across this while looking for a picture to post for today’s Friday Photo. I decide on this one. This was from June 2011. She was a sweet cat.  She was an angel.
