This week in iphone pics and a Freebie :)


Here are a few photos caught by my iphone this week:




Yup, uh huhn… I’ve been waiting for this day to come.  My first pair of glasses. Ever.  Well, other than some dollar store reading ones which I used for tatting.  That tatting thread is tiny don’t you know?  Only it seemed to be getting tinier and even a little fuzzy at times.  Or perhaps the lights in the house were failing.  Or…

I need glasses for reading and I need them for “distance” when driving too.  I wound up buying these online from  Excellent service and had them to my door via courier within a week. And your first pair is FREE.  Really.  If you decide to try them, let me know, they have a referral rewards program and I’d love to be your “referrer”



I felt honoured to have held this beautiful little sparrow.  It flew into our front window and stunned itself.  I let it go after it had a few moments to recover.

Here is a small series of lupine photos – I culled these out of about 20 that I took upon the urging of my Mr. a few days ago when the conditions were perfect.

Notice the BIG FAT blobs of pollen Mr. Bee has collected on his legs!
