Shawnee Corn Pitcher

While I was vacationing last week, The Husband stopped at an estate sale and picked up a pitcher for my Shawnee Corn collection.

I love it!

I have previously written about my collection here.

Sister Trip

My Sister and I took a trip together last week.

No Husbands.

No Children.

Just Sisters.

Four days on the beach in Destin, FL.

It was awesome.

Racism in Oklahoma

We went to visit a friend in the hospital tonight.

A family was walking ahead of us in the lobby with 6 children of various ages...well behaved, nicely dressed, laughing children. 

Another family was walking toward us. A not so well dressed family of father, mother, teen age daughter.

As the family walking toward us passed the family walking ahead of us, the man turned to the woman and said hatefully, "Well, we know what she's done at least six times."

The family ahead of us was black. The family walking toward us was white.

I was speechless.

The Husband said to me (sarcastically), "Racism doesn't exist in America today."

I am so angry with myself that I did not say something to "THAT MAN".

I've decided my response to situations like this (that are more frequent than you may think) will be:

"Judge not, lest you be judged." Matthew 7:1-3

Oklahoma Christians (or any Christians) can't argue with scripture, can they?

Fiori De Como by Dale Chihuly

I recently spent 4 days in Las Vegas attending 
a work related convention at the Bellagio

I was very impressed with the 
which dominates the lobby of the hotel. 

I took the following photos with my iPhone.

It was impossible to get the entire piece in one photo.

I like this photo with the beautiful flower arrangement 
juxtaposed in front of the glass.

However, I love the composition of this photo with the flowers off center.
I also love the yellows and oranges in the upper left corner.
This may be the best picture I have ever taken with my iPhone.

I have not taken the time to see the 
but it is most certainly on my "to do" list now.

Have you seen any of his works?

Happy Snow Day, Ground Hog Day & Superbowl Sunday!

A beautiful snowfall started this morning. 
Big, fluffy, pretty flakes.

I planned a big breakfast for this morning.  
Oatmeal, bacon and toast. 

 We were low on (out of date) bread and had less than a gallon of milk.  
We failed at advance preparation for the snow storm.

I was, however, able to fix a delicious breakfast. 

We gave The Husband the strength to clear the driveway.

 My fireplace mantle decor is appropriate today.

Three snow scenes collected by me and three gifted to me.
Part of my dead lady art collection. 

We have a new Nikon Coolpix S9500 camera. 
I'm not sure I like it.
The mantle pictures are yellowish, don't you think?
The other pics in the post were taken with my iPhone.

I'm going to start this book this afternoon:

Oh, and I suppose I'll watch the Super Bowl this evening.

What are you doing today?
