I suspect I’ll continue to share photos & tidbits here (as well as on my two blogger sites) from time to time … but I have a NEW self hosted Website called Giraffe Journals Just for the JOY of it, and I hope you’ll visit me there as time permits.

With apologies, belatedly I share …

trunk in my front yard …

multi-colored short-lived blooms

Mellow Yellow Lab, Molly with the blues …

Usually my
Mellow Yellow Lab, Molly

is one happy gal

she’s been ‘blue’ and checking out
the little blue house

and last Friday met
Aloha, a 3-month old
Damation puppy

introduced in my
Reflections … and here

they meet once again.
Not ‘friends’ yet … but in due time
I suspect they’ll be ;–)

Thought for Today
“If people did not do silly things, nothing intelligent would ever get done.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein

Tuesday morning addendum: While taking time to catch up on blog visits this morning (after being away from my computer most of the past few days), I’ve just discovered and new Monday Morning Mosaic Meme and am delighted to find others who create this kind of eye-candy!  I’ve decided to add that logo to THIS post and plan to participate weekly from now on … in fact, once I finish this addition here … I intend to create a belated Monday Morning Mosaic at Sacred Ruminations … just because ;–)


On the left is the logo I found at Gemma’s today and on the right is one I created myself … because I didn’t see one at The Little Red House.  If you participate in Mosaic Monday and would like to use mine, feel free.  You can find my first ‘official’ Mosaic Monday at Sacred Ruminations.

Mellow Yellow Monday #17

One collage of blooms
with two different backgrounds …

I created … fun to share

Mellow Yellow Monday #16

Tinges of yellow,
Molly is a ‘mellow’ lab …
Neighborhood ‘greeter’

loves to romp & play
with her canine furry friends
and, of course, with me.

Frequently the star
of my Cam’ra Critters posts …
on each of my blogs.

Ears, nose, eyes, hind legs
plus the tip of Molly’s tail …
