I know, another random, out of place, photo. But it has meaning for today. Today we officially moved out of the house and into a new one. Today it was a little bit harder because it was official. Also the man who bought the house turned out to be real, pretentious, asshole who doesn’t deserve the place, but whatever. I ran across this photo recently. This is the view from my bedroom window, which I used to wake up to every morning. That sun shined on my bed every morning and occasionally the moon would light my room too. It has been the frame for a lot of photos. I have spent a lot of time looking, watching, dreaming, and thinking out this window. It’s a great view and I hope it will continue to be appreciated. I took one last look out that window today.
It snowed today! It isn’t the first day of snow, but today the snow actually stuck and stayed around. It snowed lightly, but consistently almost all day. It was very pretty to watch it and I honestly don’t mind the snow. I love snow. I just don’t care for how cold it is. Oh well, that’s winter here in Indiana. I think Peanut even liked the snow.
Down a road I’ve traveled but a few times, I found the remaining structure of what was once a home. Burned down to only its frame. Charred on the sides burning all but the boards & memories. What happened here? Who was affected? Was anyone lost or hurt? What now, for those that have lost? Fire is devastating, possibly runing forever anything that stands in its way.
This photo was taken inside the home, shooting through what was once a window, a barrel was the only color left behind, besides the changing leaves from the fall air.
This morning was hard. I didn’t want to wake up. I had to convince myself to listen to my alarm. I had to tell myself that yes, I do need to show up to work. I have to leave her and this warm bed for lumber and hard work. I wasn’t happy, but I did it. And I was greeted by a pretty sunrise and fog over the cornfields. It was a small little gift to try and make the day a little bit better.
This is Peanut, Hannah’s British Short Hair cat. He’s a very cute cat, though he tends to stay away from people. Since I’ve been around him so much, he has started to tolerate me and now lets me pet him. I snapped this shot of him this morning, in one of his favorite spots, as he looked out the window.
Free. Like to curtains blowing in the wind. Memorial Day originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the Union & Confederate soldiers who died in war.. Some gave all, their life, family & what they believed in. Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving. Its because of them we have times like these.
Memorial Monday dinners with family & friends. Love, laughter, happiness and memories.
Thank you. To all those who serve. Thank you to those who served. Thank you to those who will serve. We appreciate all that you do.
Looking out the window. It’s a simple shot at the end of a very rough day. I won’t go into the drama of this day, but I’m glad it’s over. I had to get a shot for today, so I looked out the window. It’s not a special scene. I look out this window a lot. But it looked nice tonight. I liked it, so I got this. Simple and familiar.
