Welcome to my blog! My name is Esther and I'm so happy you are here. I'm an avid nature photographer and a daydreaming thinker. My posts revolve around photos of nature's beauty, homeschooling adventures with my 2 kids, sporadic reflections on my child's heart condition, Bible reading reflections, gardening feats, and other mish mash things. Hopefully you'll leave encouraged, pensive, or smiling at the simple things of life. Thank you for stopping by and hope you'll find some interesting posts to read!

      1. Yes, that expression of “they don’t build things like they used to!” Andy often does the B&W filter on his photos of old buildings, castles and like – it really makes a difference to enhance the stone. Hopefully you are not one of the customers who lost power?


      2. Thankfully, we have power. The heat is bad for this time of month and we’re using a lot of power with a/c.
        I agree with that expression and think it applies to so many areas of life. If it breaks, the mentality is that it can be tossed and bought again for a cheap price. But some things are made so poorly that it needs replacing. As I’m getting older, I am more conscious of buying better and less.
        I will have to check out Andy’s B&W photos. His pictures of insects and birds are wonderful.
        I wanted to reply to your other comments, but I’m waiting for the time to sit at my computer and do it. It’s been a rough week and blogging time severely limited.
        I hope you are well and having a good start to the weekend. Happy mid Autumn. 🙂

      3. My mom used to tell me that expression growing up i.e. buy quality, not quantity. It doesn’t always apply, but everything seems to be made cheaply. Handles fall off, buttons fall off … I lose patience with things sometimes. I am horribly behind Esther. I have been going out the last three weeks and getting groceries in for the Winter. I do this every year, but got all shelf-stable items so I don’t have to return to the grocery store. Our COVID stats are soaring this last week – new cases, deaths and I don’t want to have to deal with stores after the holidays in particular. Here in Michigan the spikes are worse than at the onset of the pandemic … not good. So, I’ve bought a lot but should have put last Sunday’s stuff away (not easy – not a whole lot of room) but rain maybe tomorrow, so went out today. This has gotten me quite far behind in Reader …. some nights not even making it there at all – yikes!

        Happy Autumn to you to – the weather was beautiful today and the colors were gorgeous. I have taken a lot of photos at the Park of the colorful leaves … we have a windy night tonight and may lose them after that.


      4. I worry about the amount of trash generated from things wearing out quickly. But it seems the tide is turning and people are seeking out more sustainable things.
        That’s a good idea to stock up for winter. It will save you a lot of trouble later when the weather turns cold. It’s going to be an interesting autumn/winter with Covid and flu season. My goodness, double whammy.
        It’s going to be another quarantine time for us. You stay well too!!
        With blogging, you do what you can when you can. That’s the beauty of this forum. Love how we cheer each other on. 😊

      5. I’ve been doing the stocking up for years and my mom liked doing that before me so she didn’t have to go out in the Winter so I just continued. Luckily, at the beginning of the pandemic, I still had enough pantry items as I buy enough through April, so I did not have to go to the grocery store until mid-May as it turned out, so was happy about that. I have caught up somewhat, still a day behind, but came to Comments now. I did two posts for this week and it rained … a lot, so glad I went yesterday. Did not fiddle with groceries … let them degerm a few days since they are not perishables anyway. I waded through about 800 photos today … that was my biggest accomplishment of the day. Yes, we are all in the same boat … sometimes you keep up and other times you lag behind.
