Margaret Falls

Abnormally Normal Me

A beautiful walk to Margaret Falls posed some great photo opportunities. Walks in the great outdoors is what our family likes to do whenever we get together, and yesterday was no exception. I am so grateful to be living in such a beautiful part of the country never mind the world. Don’t know as I would ever want to leave here permanently. There have been many a good memory made at this location! The falls are quite strong right now, but when the run off is over, there is a hole behind the falls that you can crawl up into!

Calke Abbey

Photo Mummy

Recently my Husband and I enjoyed a child free day in the sun,all be it between school hours.

We visited Calke Abbey in Derbyshire , its a National Trust property of which we are members.

It was a lovely day and we even enjoyed an obligatory cream tea -nom!

There was so much more to see and do,we didn’t make it inside the house this time but we will definitely be making a return trip with the girls.

It’s just not a long weekend if I don’t completely fuck up my sleep patterns for no good reason. Up until 2am! Awake at 6! Rinse and repeat until today, when I actually wanted to get up and out of the house early – except I was so tired from three nights of poor/small sleep I couldn’t keep my eyes open, and I ended up napping at 8am! Boo. Today was .. not productive, unless you count the skirt: I finished up a skirt made up of a dress I cut in half. There was also a lot of me time, and perogies. Both the me time and the perogies involved a lot of bacon, so I suppose it was a good day after all.

As far as long weekends go, it was a quiet one. I tried to rouse interest in people for social times, but that failed spectacularly…

Ruby Tuesday – 36

"On Dragonfly Wings with Buttercup Tea"

 

 


Ruby Tuesday - 36b

Ruby Tuesday - 36a

 Sedona, AZ

 

______________________________________________

This tree is another expression of the trees observed along the borders of Sedona’s energy vortex;** twisted in mesmerizing shapes and directions!

Little did we realize the treasure to discover as we investigated the interesting ravine along its side.  The last two photographs were taken under the tree — literally!  These photos reflect the tree’s roots!

** Note: in the Sedona region –
the plural of vortex is vortex,
rather than vortices!

The Great Escape + 10 = No Place like Home

The Palladian Traveler

Sorry for going “Hollywood” with this post, but Cheri of WordPress made me do it.

As soon as she dropped the gauntlet down on the Weekly Photo Challenge: ESCAPE, all I could think of was Steve McQueen — Virgil Hilts, “The Cooler King” — trying to leap over barb-wired barriers along the German-Swiss border on the “borrowed” BMW wartime motorcycle in the 1963 classic The Great Escape. Unfortunately, he got tangled up.

Then I thought a bit more, and conjured up Dudley Moore and Judy Garland.

In the 1979 romantic comedy “10,” Dudley Moore  — George Webber — had a bit of a mid-life crisis, took a leave of absence (aka, ESCAPE) from work AND reality, and went in search of a woman who, in his mind, was a perfect 10 — beauty, not dress size.

Turns out, Bo Derick — Jenny Miles — was the 10…
