Through The Eyes Of The Camera

As I downloaded images taken minutes ago
it seems much looks the same.
Yet as I walk and look around
it does not appear this way to me.
Need to remember
camera does not lie :)

two loads of creek gravel where road was washing
looks pretty good and will pack down with rains coming in a few days.
began to cut back flowers, trimmed by walk and filled 2 wheel barrows full
working slowly as I begin trying to have my normal lifestyle
trees still very green
and as I look into the woods I realize that I did not walk in them this year,
so very wet and could not ride tractor and most of year not up to it.  
maybe next year :)   I know the paths I made over the last 4 years are filled with limbs :(
and I might add
if I cannot walk in the woods
I will look into them from afar :)
This morning made something different
to my Kefir and addition of yogurt, strawberries, banana,  flax seeds and spinach (diet lacking greens)
and some protein powder - there body - regain your energy.

Last night something I have not made for years
simmered round steak which had been dredged in flour
for hours on low heat, then a addition of mushrooms and made gravy.
Fork tender and remembered making this when children were growing up.
It was good with potatoes and peas.   A lot on this plate and could only eat half of it....

Will add once again
all this information goes to children and grandchildren
but makes me smile that some enjoy reading
of her days
in this lifetime.

Your chair looks so inviting. The flowers in my whiskey barrels have not heard that it's fall ~ the snap dragons, marigolds, and geraniums are still blooming! It's such a treat to have those colors this late in the year.

My Mother used to make that meal often--but we had corn with it. I hate peas!!! I cut my flowers back a bit early I guess, according to the beautiful weather we are having. The annuals were looking leggy so I got rid of them too. I am trying to get it all done and then hunker down.

Sharon, so happy for you that connections were repaired.
Judy, peas - because I need something green :)

I loved reading this post. Once again Ernestine you have inspired me.

The photo of your dinner makes me hungry. I've made dishes like that before, always delicious.

Have a lovely day and a great week.
