In a Crowded Target

I went to the local Target today to get a few things over lunch hour. I was in the Christmas decorations looking at all the lights. I didn't get nearly enough for my evergreen trees and someone told me their lights were on sale.

As I rounded a corner, I saw two older gentlemen. I would guess in their late 60s. They were standing very close together. It was how close they were standing to each other that caught my attention. I thought they must be good friends, partners or maybe even brothers. I was curious and stared longer than what is polite.

When I passed by them, I saw one of the men had a walking cane. He was holding a Christmas tree ornament and the other gentleman was describing it to him in great detail. My eyes watered up. It was one of the sweetest things I've ever seen. I can't imagine Christmas without my sight and I realized how grateful I am to be healthy.

Take time to enjoy all the sights this Christmas season and say a little prayer for those of us who aren't as fortunate.

A November Treat

It was unusually warm for November so I snuck out with camera in hand yesterday to take some photos around campus. I'm working on a calendar project and need a few photos. Here's what I discovered. Savor the details.

November in the Carolinas

At the top of this mountain is the weather radar tower. These geese have the life.
A local creek. What a gorgeous, sunny, 80 degree day in November!

And Now a Commerical Break...

I've been sick and busy - the two usually go together for me. When I'm too busy and not getting the rest I need, I will get sick. I'm dragging a few pictures from the tons I've taken at the dog park to share with you. Savor the details.

I know winter is on the way when I have to bring inside my orchids. They stay outside during the summer soaking up the humidity and sunshine. When I bring the orchids inside, they will usually bloom. Diesel is pretty interested in them. It's a good thing orchids are not poisonous to cats.
