#Grilling Steak

No ingredients, except a little salt 


Serves more than four people (of my size)


Have a great evening!

Fixing a loose roof shingle

If you are scared of heights, please don't try going up too high 


Now I understand what they mean when they say "it's lonely at the top"


The view from here is great 


Which reminds me ... 
Houses are made of brick and stone, but homes are made of love alone

The best things in life are not things, but #relationships ☺

... (and chocolates) 

The road is never long or inconvenient to a friend's house ☺


Had a great lunch with friends at Annina's Bakeshop 




Look out for turtles crossing the road 



Lunch is never complete without chocolate ... but not just any chocolate 


It is places like this, that add to the culture of a town!


                                                  Belgian chocolates here at Charlinda


They looked so good, I just had to eat one right there. You see Belgian chocolates taste best, when  eaten at the factory 


If you don't care about chocolates ...


You can get unforgettable ice cream here 


Happy weekend friends!

Baby Squirrel Leaping off the Bird Feeder

T'was raining. From indoors, saw a squirrel on the bird feeder. I tapped the window and the squirrel leaped about five feet to the tree, and scared the birds away 


Here is a slow motion of the same video

#FamilyTime Afternoon hike with the family

The branches are brown and bare, and the chipmunk and squirrels are out


The stillness of the Carolinian forest was broken by the sound of this giant woodpecker (about half a mile away) 


Busy at work



A few weeks from now, this place will be so colourful 


But for now, it's just green and brown

Greek Lunch

Talking about strangers, Jesus can reveal himself to anyone, anywhere at anytime. Happy #Easter friends ☺

"As they talked and discussed, Jesus himself drew near and walked along with them;  they saw him, but somehow did not recognize him

"HE was despised and rejected by men;
a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief;
and as one from whom men hid their faces
he was despised, and we esteemed him not"
