Gratitude is…

 

Golden Delicious with textures

In this part of the world we take for granted the ability to go into our favourite supermarket or green grocer and pick out the juiciest and freshest fruits and vegetables.  This juicy Golden Delicious is one of my favourites in the fall as it is so crisp and has that just tart taste that wakes up my taste buds.  I give gratitude to the farmer who grew this thing of beauty.  What do you give gratitude for today.

Joining Lisa Gordon our host for The Creative Exchange and to Kim Klassen who hosts Texture Tuesday.   I have used two textures for my photo.  I used a texture by French Kiss called “deep lemon fresco” and Kim Klassen’s “and then some”.

Beautifully done. One of my favorite apples after the Cortland.
VERY pretty. And, I love that thoughtful quote. :)

Visiting from both "Creative Exchange" AND "TT". Love your photo AND your choices of texture/application. I don't think I've ever eating a Golden Delicious...I always hone in on the Red Delicious and Granny Smiths.

Love the texture. Your apple looks good enough to eat. hee-hee! Yes, we take so much for granted. I feel so blessed. I try and make it a point to thank God every day for all of my many blessings. My sweet mother taught all of her children to be grateful. I'm grateful for that!

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
