Getting their just desserts! I am a strong believer in Karma and while I would not wish anyone due harm, I believe that people eventually get what they deserve! Individuals who: Take advantage of others when they are down Steal from them or Intentionally deceive for their own gain ...have no place in my world. They may eventually reap the results of their bad behavior and poor choices by getting their just desserts! And I don't mean tiramisu! No way. No how! (13 comments)
This photo was taken from our front yard when the wildfires were almost to our house. The combination of electrical storms and a dry summer created a perfect environment for quick-start burns. Thankfully nature played a huge part when the rains came, becoming a great deterrent to further destruction. The sun went down in a blaze of color. Glory be! (7 comments)
Here it comes! A solid sheet of rain transcending over the landscape, hurriedly crossing the valley, dousing every nook and cranny in its path. We are getting our fair share of moisture these past few weeks as the clouds dissipate, build again, then spill several times during the day. Rinse and repeat! I prefer a slow and steady rain so quit yer squalling Mother Nature...uh, that is just a request, I would never dream of telling you how to go about your business. Happy Wednesday! The ducks are going to have a hey-dey to-day! (16 comments)
wordless wednesday: Wordless Wednesday (almost!): Reach out, reach out and touch someone. - 07/18/12 01:20 PM
Wordless Wednesday (almost!): Reach out, reach out and touch someone. Hollyhocks are one of my favorite flowers and known to grow upright, stretching toward the sky, their stalks often measuring between six to ten feet and even taller. Apparently this one wished to come down at eye level and say hello to all who hurried past. Hey! Nice to meet you Holly and thank you for reaching out, you certainly brightened my moment! Happy Wednesday all! (14 comments)
It is well-known that people who are self-centered tend to be selfishly engrossed in themselves to the point of being egotistical. It is impossible for a flower to possess this human trait but would venture to say that I myself centered on this beautiful daisy that was independent of all the other surrounding flowers. OK, so I admit that I am Crazy for Daisies! Are you? Crazy? For daisies? Happy Wednesday all! (23 comments)
Wind kicking up dirt, tumbleweeds scurrying across the roadways, narrowly avoiding passing cars on their way to safety. Early Spring weather has brought some blooms and buds along with thick, roiling clouds in the form of a storm. Suddenly a beam of light breaks through to bid adieu, adios, avedazane, 'au revoir, with promises to return come the new day. And so shall I! Happy Wednesday to you all. (22 comments)

Calm weather here in southern Utah while a storm rages up north as my brother-in-law will be fighting for his life. After experiencing fuzziness in his right eye, he thought maybe the retina was detaching but received devastating news; a melanoma behind his eye. They will take his eye to save his life while looking for more cancer. Kathy Streib’s post really hits home as there is nothing we can do but pray for the best outcome and be available when needed. My heart is heavy for him (24 comments)
Afternoons spent trout fishing...skipping stones across the water...tickling the toes in the shallows...a child's excitement... catching...releasing...baiting crawdads...exploring the nearby trails and streams...tenting it...meeting fellow fishing enthusiasts...sharing stories of the ones that got away... Do you have a favorite memory bank? .................................................... Baker Dam Reservoir is located approximately 20 miles from St. George just off Highway 18 right after Brookside and approximately 3 miles from Veyo, Utah. It is stocked with rainbow and brown trout, allows camping in designated areas and perfect for ATVing along marked trails. (17 comments)
Someone ripped the toilet paper roll to pieces, shredding the paper from the bathroom, down the hallway into the living room? It wasn't me! Fang holes in the bread bag? It wasn't me! Claw marks on the new couch upholstery? It wasn't me! Whoever did all that must have slipped out the kitty door right before you came home. What do you mean we do not have a kitty door? Uh...um...Nevermind! (30 comments)
And NOW would be a great time to: Take a bus Hop a plane Board a ship Skip town Run away Plan a trip Point and go Drive yourself Make haste and surround yourself with like-minded folks. Go on now, be gone, this is a SCROOGE-FREE ZONE! ............................................................. This gentleman at the Dicken's Festival has a great sense of humor, especially after I asked to take his picture! He started posing and before you knew it, he asked, "How about this one?" and snapped it. Love it! (21 comments)

What If there were 3 women who showed up at the manger instead of 3 men? They would have: arrived early delivered the baby cleaned the stable made a casserole offered practical gifts ~ Author Unknown This is one of the many yard art decorations we have in front of the house and is spotlighted at night creating a Christmas Wonderland. It is also one of my favorites and has always made me wonder...What If?! Happy Wednesday to you all! (16 comments)
The Cliffs at Snow Canyon offer unparalelled red rock views that are much to be desired. Visitors travel from across the world year 'round to take photos, walk the many city trails (over 110 miles) or hike the local state and national parks scattered throughout southern Utah. This property overlooks the majestic Red Mountain and dense lava beds and a buyer will eventually have a lot to be thankful for in this peaceful community! Happy Wednesday to you all! (12 comments)
As the holidays come to full swing, good friends and families will come together in celebration of thanks-giving, good will, brimming with renewed hope for the coming year. If you know someone who may be alone and could use some cheer...
Thanks to Art Around the Corner, the downtown St. George area has come alive with animals such as this realistic bronze sculpture, Silent Stalker by Brady Fairbanks. There are 23 works of art sporadically placed among the many gardens and sidewalks from 200 North Street to Tabernacle Street. Be aware: You just may come face-to-face with a soaring eagle, frollicking pony, a puffed up prince or a stealthy cougar! Prepare to be delighted! ........................................... Also, if you feel like taking a drive , we have four Utah State Parks, (7 comments)
Look but don't dare touch this plant unless you wish to be speared by its spiky points that are hidden among fern-like leaves. Birds flitter with ease over, around under and through the foliage, easily escaping its needle-like tips. This Honeybean Mesquite tree has a built-in defense system that sprouts 3 inch spikes that have been known to puncture tennis shoes and tires. The wood from the tree is used to create a smoky flavor to meats when barbecuing. Now, do you see why this is a touch-me-not type of plant? I'll gladly comply. Happy Wednesday to (26 comments)
They may be small in stature but can Get-It-Done just as well as their larger counterparts. It may take more steps and more energy but sure enough at the end of the day, they can rest assure that size did not play a part in a job left half done or less than standard. And besides, according to Yoda, size does not matter! Enjoy your Wednesday all! (12 comments)
As the sun drifts downward, yellows and oranges infuse, masquerading under the guise of a Jack-o'-lantern sky. ~ WKN ............................................ A lawmaker is proposing to change Halloween from the 31st of October to the last Saturday of October every year. What are your thoughts? Are you a traditionalist and say 'leave it alone' or do you agree with the plan? Happy Wednesday! (28 comments)
