Fear of Flying

Fear of Flying

I’ve never had a fear of flying. However, I did experience some anxiety my first, and only, time on an airplane. As the plane lifted off the ground I spontaneously reacted with tears. Up until that moment I’d never given it too much thought because my eyes were on the prize: the destination and who [...]

If A Tree Falls…

If A Tree Falls…

This isn't a great photo. I was trying to traipse across a neighbors yard as little as possible. Based on my title, perhaps you're thinking "If a tree falls in the forest, and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?" A bit of philosophy on observation and perception. Or maybe [...]

Signs

Look at the colours! Fallen leaves can be so lovely. Every season has it's signs that change is coming. The Lesson of the Fig Tree “From the fig tree learn its lesson: as soon as its branch becomes tender and puts out its leaves, you know that summer is near." Matthew 24:32 Jesus: A Sign that [...]

Bee Leave!

Bee Leave!

You're going to have to take a really close look at the photo below. Can you see the bee leaving? I think it looks as if he lept off the flower rather than flew off of it. He is taking a leap of faith! 😀 How about you, are you "bee leaving" too? And Jesus [...]

Little and Big

I've been meaning to offer a warning about the dangers of sitting under fruit trees. Just ask Sir Issac Newton. On the bright side, Sir Newton did learn something. It only took [...]

It's BEEn a while since any bees have made an appearance on my blog. Bees are important; they help trees to bear fruit. Here are some photos that I've taken over the years of these fuzzy fliers. The bee facts were sourced from Ontariohoney.ca "Bees have five eyes - two compound eyes and three tiny [...]

Look a Little Closer

Look a Little Closer

We have a very thoughtful upstairs neigbor. He's a wonderful neighbor. When he came back from Alaska he brought us some fish and dungeness crab. It's really good! He also gave us some cash for taking care of his dog. We always tell him that we are more than willing to watch Charlie for nothing. [...]

Mothra?

Mothra?

I'd never even heard the word "mothra" until Andrew uttered it last week. I thought it was the funniest thing.  So last week we had the privilege of watching our neighbor's dog, Charlie. Well… most of it was a privilege. I like to feel useful and she's a pretty easy dog to dogsit. She does, [...]
