Xingfu Mama’s Pull up a Seat Challenge Week 22

For quite some time, I’ve been out of the loop with my favorite photo challenges. We’ve been going through a lot of traumatic changes. On October 8 of last year, my 99-year-old father in law died. I was in the middle of planning the 100th birthday party for this World War II veteran, when I found myself planning his funeral instead. Last month we sold the house that had been in our family for almost one hundred years. It the worst funerals that I’ve ever been asked to organize. I’m still having nightmares nearly every night. At any rate, life marches on and it thrills me to be able to participate in Xingfu Mama’s Pull Up a Seat Challenge!

Cell Pic Sunday: After the Blizzard

Thank you, Cee for directing me to this challenge; that is, Cell Pic Sunday. Now that we are on the verge of another blisteringly hot summer, I thought it would be nice to take a look at the horrors that winter can bring. Cell Pic Sunday is hosted by a gentleman named John Steiner. I would strongly urge anyone who sees this post to check out his page.

The backyard of our house that we recently sold and already miss like a close friend who’s gone away forever.
