4 on the 4th

Here is my first post for my 4 on the 4th monthly endeavor.

1. Don't know what I would do without my coffeemaker. It sure helps to wake me up in the morning and get me moving. I usually enjoy at least 3 cups of just about any brand of flavored coffee and only black - no cream or heaven forbid, sugar! Nope, neither of them in my coffee!

2. Our lovely birch tree was planted soon after we moved into our current home almost 21 years ago. We have seen it grow from just a stick to an absolutely gorgeous tree that we hope will be around for many more enjoyable years.

3. This big bowl on my kitchen counter is always full of fresh fruits and veggies! Right now the luscious squashes and apples of Fall take up a lot of space in it.

4. It's time for those little birds to start visiting the feeder as the summer has left us and cooler days are here. Not sure what these 2 bluish-grey birds are...Nuthatches, maybe? Oh, and there's a Carolina Wren behind the Nuthatch on the right. Off to research those birds. Update: yep, they are Nuthatches!

Thanks for stopping by today! Make it a good one!

I Must Apologize

Oh my goodness! I can't believe how quickly time has flown since I last posted here. I have been so busy with various projects and life in general that I just haven't taken the time to share anything here. Well, I would like to try to post again on a regular basis so here is one idea I may pursue beginning soon.

I like the concept of posting a certain number of photos on the same day each month but since it is just me and my husband at home now - our kidlets have left the nest - posting just 2 photos each time doesn't sound very exciting, does it? So maybe I'll take 4 photos on the 4th of every month - since originally there were 4 of us living in this house before the kidlets moved out - then post them on the 5th of the month. Yes, I think maybe I'll do that! So since tomorrow is the 4th of November, I will take 4 photos then post them the next day. Stay tuned!

In the meantime, here's a small project I finished off today. I had made the actual card a couple months ago but just today was able to find the perfect photos to put inside. I plan to send this to my son and his wife for Thanksgiving. I think they will like it very much as it showcases photos of the day their baby boy was born, just 3 weeks ago tomorrow.
