Our East Tennessee Home

In recent years I have lived in eastern Tennessee. It is another wonderfully beautiful place and I very much think of it as a great blessing from god to have lived several years here.


An autumn afternoon in East Tennessee.

On the way to the house on the mountain.


Autumn in my back yard.


Early morning on our Tennessee mountain.

The long shadows of an early autumn day.

Our hill, looking up to one of the mountain peaks.

This is why they call them the smokey mountains!


Winter on our mountain.

Just over into the North Carolina mountains.

The Creek on a winter's day afternoon.

The Smokey Mountains in Winter.

Autumn afternoon by the creek.

The "other side of the mountain" from our home.

Next to the French Broad River in North Carolina mountains.

The dead of winter on our mountain road.

A pond in winter, up the road from our home .

Wintery scene looking toward are mountain.

Autumn by Paint Rock in North Carolina mountains.

They apear to be "Holy cows"!

The creek on a frosty afternoon.

Up the road on a winter's day. The tree is one I named Scarlet,
because in autumn she wears a scarlet gown of leaves.

The enchanted forest in autumn.

Mid way up the mountian, the creek in winter.

Autumn by our creek.


January evening on our mountain.

Spring dogwood bloooms.

Spring. Pink dogwood blooms.


Is it not easy to see the beauty of the "everyday"! 
God blesses the just and the unjust the same. Praise Him.

My Arizona Home

God has blessed me. I have lived in several places on our planet.
One of the places where I spent nearly 30 years and where my husband and I raised our three children, is southwestern Arizona.

Sunrise and date palms.

Sunset over the fields and citrus groves.

A morning sky.

You may think these are rain clouds, but not in this desert. 
The humidity may rise but rain doesn't often fall. 
360 days a year will be rainless! This is another desert morning.


Believe this is a desert sunset on a humid rainless day.


Sunset between Phoenix and Tucson, Arizona.


One of the beautiful mornings we are treated to in winter, 
when temps can range between low 40s to near 100 degrees, 
depending on the year.


Railroad near hwy 8 east of Tucson.

East of Tucson.


Winter morning in an RV Park.

Another colorful morning.

Hwy 8 south of Phoenix.

Near Phoenix.


One of the many, many RV Resorts 
in the Arizona desert southwest.


Sunsetting along hwy 8 near Tucson.


Yet again a beautiful winter morning.


Hwy 8 looking south of Phoenix.

These are all my photographs, and were taken in fall and winter of 2016 and 2017, in the Arizona desert southwest.

Praise God, the Creator
Nehemiah 9:6

"You alone are the LORD You have made the heavens, The heaven of heavens with all their host, The earth and all that is on it, The seas and all that is in them You give life to all of them And the heavenly host bows down before You.

A View of My Life

A View of My Life

This photo of my laundry room is from a post on my Facebook Page. The assignment was to take and then post, seven black and white pictures, one per day, of your life, with no people included. This was my first and, I think the best! It is so true, that I totally cracked myself up posting it. All the fun stuff I want this blog to be about, have to wait until my housework is under control.
My mother really taught me well!

So I thought I'd continue to mind my Mom, thus the posting of this photo and it's explanation.

Everybody, get your work done, so you can do something more fun and creative!
