This price per gallon has come down over the past few months and I expect it to come down a bit more since this is an election year. We shall see…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Arranged

To look for a photo about arranged, I looked within my house.
Whether it was monkeys strung together, trucks in a row, a wall full of vcr tapes (ready to be destroyed on the count of 3) … the answer was right here, the whole time!

Arranging monkeys can be quite fun!

when you think your day is going to be like every other day …
you look outside and realize that Mother Nature has something wonderful planned for you!

Without rhyme or reason, the gift of color is offered with the understanding that beauty is all around … all the time.

When color comes at the end of the day, it’s a reminder that someone is thinking of us!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Contrast

Last October we were having the most amazing autumn!

The trees were colorful and leaves were plentiful.

Then … a heavy, wet snowstorm hit the area and we lost our leaves, branches and that sweet warm autumn smell.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Regret

I don’t regret leaving upstate NY to live in Colorado. I do regret that Colorado lacks good Italian Bakeries… ahh, the sadness of it!

I regret I can’t visit DiLauros Bakery and buy some fresh pizza dough, some flat bread or a slice of pizza. I can’t have it all, I know … but I keep trying!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Hidden Fun

Playing games was such a fun activity for me as a child. So when I came across this exhibit with so many old board games I wanted to share them with you!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Comfort

I usually take comfort in a cup of tea.
tetly tea boxI boil water in my electric pot then pour some into the cup. Once the cup is toasty to the touch, I pour it out and add my tea bag, then fill the cup with water.

I let it steep for 2-4 minutes.

I add some milk (I only have skim milk in the house so that will have to do) and drink it nice and hot.

I do not … EVER … order hot tea when I am in a restaurant. I am sure to be disappointed and I am.

Why is that you wonder?

Well, a cup is yanked off a shelf and lukewarm water is poured into a cold cup. A teabag is tossed on the side and it’s delivered with a smile. It’s cold, it’s weak and if you ask for a refill, you’ll get more water but not another teabag. It’s sad … but knowing the situation will save you from disappointment. And yes, you can thank me in advance.

There was ONE exception. On a flight to New Zealand, the flight attendants walked around with pots of brewed tea! It was the most amazing thing ever. Hot tea, plenty of refills, strong and tasty. Oh my… it was unfolding in just the right way!
