Home Sweet Home

In looking for an appropriate, I decided to choose this one from 4 years ago, when our son was home, and we had a meal similar to one I had yesterday at noon. I surely wish a Happy New Year to all my friends, whether fellow bloggers, or friends and family, across the world! With our German heritage, Mashed Potatoes, Sauerkraut, and Sausage (oops-hot dog substitute) are a must. This year it was cheese-impregnated venison, hotdogs a gift from one of my taxi customers.

Painter

During this slow time in my taxi work, and doing rep work for a mattress company, I have done quite a bit of painting. Basically re-doing some rooms in our home, and also found time to paint three of my latest carvings.

Two Surprising Delights

I stood in amazement in our Kitchen last evening, and gazed to the West! Wow, I saw the sunset. I think it may be the first time, I saw a sunset from within our house. There are houses west of us, and a good part of the town. Somehow with the change of seasons, the sunset was lined up, so I could see it from the kitchen, looking through the dining room window. Included in the photo would be the iconic town clock of the town square, and a rickshaw, an iconic figure of Bangladesh, where we spent 8.5 years of our lives. I suspect that last sentence, was a “run-on sentence!”

The second delight was to see two Carolina Wrens at our window feeder at the same time. This photo was taken on our clothes line pole, at some other time.

This is a view of our window feeder, with a house finch peeking around the side, to get a better view of the photographer!

Dusty Lane

Serene country farm in Ohio. This sect of Amish think gravel, would be a luxury, not to be indulged in. Or for sure, concrete or blacktop for their driveway. Of course not much could hinder the passage of a carriage (buggy)

I used the Sleeklens Starter 5 – Vintage-Dreamy Feeling preset in Lightroom for post-processing.
