Love thy neighbor – and if he happens to be tall, debonair and devastating, it will be that much easier. – Mae West
Happy 4th of July to our American neighbours! And Happy Wednesday to all!
The Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge has come to an end, and so the final post is All-Time Favourite!
So I chose a photo that I didn’t seek out. It was really early in the morning on Boxing Day. The house was still and the room was just starting to lighten. I had spent a restless night on the couch at my parents’ home, and I was about to roll over when the moon caught my eye. I was transfixed.
When a moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie
When the world seems to shine like you’ve had too much wine
That’s amore! – Dean Martin, That’s Amore

Delight in the little things. – Rudyard Kipling
Life is filled with tragedy, with long patches of struggle and with, I think, beautiful bursts of joy and accomplishment. Blessed with those moments, you just try to relax as much as possible and focus on the little things… – David Dastmalchian
Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously. A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves, vanity to what we would have others think of us. – Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice
If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant. – Anne Bradstreet
Tulips are one of the first flowers to start blooming in my garden in the Spring, but I still have several weeks to wait. This weekend, we were hit with an ice storm, but thanks to a friend, we still had a little Spring inside!

Silence is one of the great arts of conversations. – Marcus Tullius Cicero
…shimmering and white as it falls…The earth is covered with it, and it is falling still in silence so deep that you can hear its silence. – Frederick Buechner (Telling the Truth: The Gospel as Tragedy, Comedy and Fairy Tale)

Perseverance is the courage to ignore the obvious wisdom of turning back…
…and perhaps the courage to not worrying about looking like an idiot doing it!
My parents really enjoy their bird feeder, just outside the kitchen window over the sink. (that last detail is important because I once caught my Mom gazing dreamily at the feeder…with a carton of ice-cream discreetly hidden in the sink. Sorry Mom. In her defence, she was hiding it from my kid, who didn’t need more ice cream…) 🙂
I’m pretty sure my Dad snapped this one quick, right before my mother stormed out the side door with a broom. If it was morning, she might still be in her jammies. Just like the bat story, I really wish I could draw!
