At Home

Pictures taken in the places we’ve called ‘home’ over the years.

Packed and Ready to go – The Bishop’s staff were delivering the second of two training events for new vestry and church leaders this Saturday morning. Like most meetings nowadays, it was on Zoom. I got to be slide master, and we all gave 10-minute talks to introduce ourselves and let the folks know how we can help them. As soon as we’d finished delivering the morning’s training I was ready to get changed and head out of here! Two-minute read.

Snow February 2021 – The snow was really fine and fluffy. Very easy to work with. Though I must confess, Ginger cleared the pathway down the drive. +1

Snowy backyard with chairs gathered around the fire pit – It got cold. -13°F (-25°C) cold. Yes, we had a couple of short power cuts, but they were a minor inconvenience. Fortunately a week or so before the cold snap we had our furnace replaced with a new high-efficiency model. +1

Recycling – It’s been a long time. We bribed one of the kids to do it earlier in the year; at that time, there was a huge amount because it included all the packaging for Ginger’s studio remodel.

Geek Moment – Recently my computer of nine years died, and I decided to replace it with a gaming laptop (right).

At my desk – November 2020. +1

Night, night, Tubby – Today we helped Tubby cross over the ‘Rainbow Bridge.’ It’s amazing how these little furry people manage to worm their way into our hearts. Even irritating ones like the Tubbmiester. Tubbs was the last man standing of our four cats and managed to see in eighteen years. One-minute read, 3 pictures

My job for the weekend is to convert this lot into a new front deck. 4 pictures

Ginger recently undertook a project to make a vessel a day for 100 days. Most days a new vessel of some sort would appear on my desk. The vases came with flowers, and the pots came with small plants. One-minute read, 2 pictures

Stamen – Hibiscus plant in the back yard. I was chatting with Ginger when I noticed the contrast between the light on the stamen of this flower and the darkness of the greenery behind it.

Having fun with my meeting backgrounds – I’ve not been counting how long we’ve been sequestering ourselves away from COVID-19, so I checked. Today is day 45. Three-minute read

Ginger’s studio at night.

Tubby, chilling in the ‘Sparkle Zone’ 3 pictures

Sleeping Rainbow Tubby – At seventeen Tubby’s definitely getting ready to cross that ol’ Rainbow Bridge, but his tenacity continually surprises us. 2 pictures

I took some pictures of our rather low-key Christmas decorations to go with the Christmas carols video I produced. 6 pictures

Blue Ball – Something different for a change … I was sitting at the kitchen table entranced by the play of light filtering through the trees and the kitchen window mesh screen. The shadows were forming wonderful dancing patterns on a blue (lacrosse) ball Ginger had left on the table. Video: 1 minute & 2 pictures

Garage Project – Just about done – For now… I’ve been tinkering with finishing this project for a few weeks now. It’s slowly getting there. Two-minute read, 5 pictures

Garage Project – Open sez-a-me. The doors are now fitted, and that’s all the main construction work complete. One-minute read, 6 pictures
