{Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real}~ March 9, 2014

The pictures I took this week have all disappeared.  Poof.  Just like that. Into thin air.  Someday I will probably find them in some dark corner of my computer, but this week's {phfr} will be archival (in other words, fairly recent pictures but not from this actual week). 


One of the ways I tried to keep February cheery was with fresh flowers.  These are just from the grocery store, but they can't help that, and besides, they are still pretty!

Flowers really do add color and vibrance to a room.  The difference is amazing.


One cold but sunny day when I came home from being out and about, I caught a fresh glimpse of our living room as I came through the front door.  I was struck by how comfortable and inviting it seemed, so I grabbed my camera and took some pictures.  I am always happy to come home!

The view from our front door, just as I left it before going out

We call the chair Earl Grey.  It was a gift from a parishioner whose husband died.  She was downsizing
and wanted to give her husband's favorite chair to the pastor (that's Dave!) who had helped
 him prepare for eternity.


We regularly chat with our daughter, son-in-law, and granddaughter via Skype.  (I love you, Skype!)  One Sunday evening, the conversation turned to music and Dave and I were persuaded to get out our flute and viola and play for Arane.  She was fascinated!  We thought it was a pretty amusing way to make music for each other!
You can see Arane on the computer screen, listening with rapt attention.

Go to Like Mother, Like Daughter for more {phfr!}


  1. Your living room is comfy and inviting. I hope I can visit it (and you) in person again sometime.

    I love how you are playing music for Arane on Skype. What a wonderful world in which we live. Even 20 years ago, that would have been impossible. How lovely that your granddaughter is able to connect with you that way even though you live several states away.

  2. I would love that! You (and family) are welcome anytime! :)
