In My Corner of the World

I take my camera wherever I go but I find myself with few pictures when I return home. I snap a few with my iPhone, but January and February have been barren months pictorially. 

Part of that is due to the freezing cold and desolate landscapes. I've had so little time with my grandkids and when I do, I'm not thinking of taking photos, merely enjoying the moment.

My dear friend, Pam arrived on Sunday and we have been enjoying being together this week. We've watched the closing of the Olympics, a delightful Hallmark movie, shared tea and scriptures, worked out at the gym together, and eaten a ton of chocolate. :)

Here in northern Maine, people are praying for spring. This season has been cold and hard, but not nearly as rough as it has been on many across the country and beyond. There's a biathlon going on here right now with international athletes. This will add a little color to our bleak winter. 

On Friday, we say farewell February and move into March - like a lion or a lamb? We will see.

On Friday also, Lord-willing, after two cancellations, I will go in for surgery to have my gall bladder removed. This is to prevent any further incidents with my pancreas, which is my major issue. The doctors say it won't make me feel any better, but I am consulting with the One I know healed many people and praying that I can eat and feel better after this is done.

I've been a terrible blogger this year so far and will probably be a bit quiet for a week or so. Hang in there with me. I continue to read your blogs, even when I am quiet, and enjoy them. 

Sending love from my little corner of the world. 


  1. Ooo.. I love Hallmark movies! Which one?

    1. I couldn't remember the name:) I watched so many recent. I love them too.

  2. I'll be praying that your surgery goes well, as scheduled. ; ) I know what you mean about the bleak landscapes. I'm so tired of snow-covered trees, I seldom bother to take photos outside.
