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. Just a couple more months!! It’s going to be colorful and bright. Can’t wait to see nature’s blooms when it warms up.
      I hope your winter is going smoothly and no power outages. We had rough winds here and SoCal is going to get lots of rain this weekend. NorCal, maybe soon? It’s 70 degrees here and not feeling much like the thick of winter. Sending you some sunshine!

      1. Thank you Esther – I will bask in the sunshine and think of you. Also, wish it was 70 degrees – that would be great and make me smile. A little icy this morning, so I walked in the street instead. They say snow over the weekend, but are saying: “depending on the storm track, we could have a dusting or a foot.” Doesn’t seem very accurate to me and I hope the weather leans toward the “dusting” for my sake, the foot of snow for yours!


      2. We have very different weather between us! It’s chilly here but you would laugh at it. lol. This week is supposed to be a rainy one, but it’s all sunshine now with chill temp. We’ll see…forecast is so fickle.
        Yesterday it rained and Ellis saw that the umbrella I used had 3 tiny holes in it. And then I got it scratched on the thorns of a rose bush. Time for a new one!! Chris told me it’s a 20 year old umbrella. Definitely time to replace.
        Happy winter and stay well. 🙂 Have a good start to the week.

      3. Get a golf umbrella and it’ll cover you and the kids too! I finally got one of them after years of taking the bus because before, if the wind was strong, it would turn that umbrella inside out in a minute.


      4. Now I know what those umbrellas are called! I looked into them and the clear ones look great. You can look through them and it’s like a bubble around you. It’ll also keep my glasses dry, which are a total pain to deal with in the rain.
        Golf umbrellas are available in both kids and adults sizes. But I have to find one with a pointy top; you can accidentally jab an eye with that sharp point.
        Must keep looking. Golf umbrellas have sold out of them near us.

      5. I used to have this umbrella called a “bubble umbrella” – they were popular maybe in the 80s or 90s. They came right down to your shoulder and protected you from rain splatters , especially on your glasses. I am having issues with my glasses getting fogged up while wearing the mask. I had some FogAway but it is not working and in applying it to the glasses repeatedly, the lens came out and no longer fits in the frame. I think someone cut the glass too small and the then glued it in as there is residue. I don’t want to go to the eye doctor and so am wearing an older prescription right now. Annoying.

      6. I got the same foggy situation with my glasses and face mask. It drives me nuts! Oh man, sorry to hear about the popped out lens. That’s a bother that can’t be fixed right away in this Covid times. Sometimes, the prescription glasses come out just right and others they are wonky and not up to par. I need special non glare and thinning down on one lens and forget about sunglasses. The lens just come out flat. ack!


      7. I have my lenses made thin and I’ve worn glasses since age 7, though I wore contact lenses for years. I had bad eyes and the contact lenses, once I needed bifocals, they compensated by making one contact lens for closeup and one for far away (Monovision) and that worked well. The FogAway worked well, but you had to apply it almost daily. Like you, I don’t want to go to the eye doctor and I think they have to send it back to the place they use to make the eyeglasses as they don’t do it in house. So I fume and fret and wear an old prescription, not the ones I wear during the day which are very light and would not work well with mask/hat … they are beveled down too, non-glare, some blue tint on them. I would be reluctant to go in flu season in a regular year, but with COVID, no way. I am going to make a stink about it though when I return. Not that they care. I’ll have to put a pair of sunglasses which I still have from when I wore contacts (hopefully I kept them) over these to drive on a sunny day.
