2021 Home Photo Challenge 2-24-21

The Home Photo Challenge was fun for me last year. Since I do not think much is going to be changing for me in the way of travel this year, I am going to continue the challenge for myself into 2021. This year I am going to add a little twist. I will give a brief description of each photo I take and write a Haiku to go along with it

This icicle gets a little longer everyday.

Inch by inch it grows.

Reaching, reaching far forward

Gaining momentum.

This icicle on the porch is half way to the ground!

Fingers of ice stretch

Towards the earth. Be ready

For the touch of cold.

Share Your World 2-22-21

It is time for SHARE YOUR WORLD. This is the weekly challenge where our hostess Melanie asks several questions and in answering them we share bits of our world.

This week’s questions and my answers are found below. When you have finished reading my answers please use the underlined link to go to Melanie’s site and see how her other contributors have answered the questions.

HANDSYW

QUESTIONS:  (an “odd” basket full today)

Have you ever ‘butt dialed” someone?  (‘butt dialed’ means have you ever made a phone call that you weren’t aware of making, because the buttons on the phone got pushed by your sitting on them (in your pocket) OR having something in your handbag press against them?).

Yes I have done this a few times, but I have had others (especially my son) “butt-dial” me more than I have done it myself.

If you were given 1000 acres of land, what would you do with it?

I would look at it for a long time. I love big tracts of land, especially when they come equipped with chairs.

What’s the funniest thing you’ve seen on-line recently? 

May be an image of text that says 'THE GROUNDHOG SAID SIX MORE WEEKS OF WINTER SO I ATE HIM'
May be an image of snow

Have you ever eaten something off the floor?  ‘5 second’ rule applies or not (the ‘5 second rule’ is that if you pick up the dropped food within a set time frame, it’s still ‘clean’ and you can safely eat it)?

Of course! Especially when the food is too good to sweep away and throw out….Don’t get me wrong it’s not like I would eat supper off the floor or anything, but a dropped crust or a cookie or something….sure.

GRATITUDE SECTION (always optional)

Feel free to share your gratitude with everyone in the form of a quote, a thought or an image.

The real gift of gratitude is meme - AhSeeit

I light these candles in my new prayer space and play soft music to create the quiet I need to focus in on God.

The gentle lights shine,

Flickering hope to each dark

Corner. Shadows hide.

My shadow in the snow

The Shadows grow long,

And the light grows deeper still.

We must make ready.

It’s been quite a week at the vicarage. We have restructured the downstairs to accommodate my mother after her injury.

Change often arrives

On the wings of greatest need.

Hardship brings life’s shifts.

The current ice storm has me dreaming of Spring

Dreaming warmer days

In the midst of winter’s reign

Strengthens inner man.

Comet in reverse,

Jet stream lights up the morning.

Saying, “We are here!”

The bird house on the edge of the property awaits its yearly inhabitants.

A bird’s summer home

Awaits the return of song,

Signal of new life.

One of the many icicles edging the roofs of the Vicarage

Inch by tiny inch

Water droplets make their way

Down to water earth.
