REMINDER: ALL SEASONS will continue, but am taking off till Aug. 5 for my weekly posts with links to various challenges.
Hello Seasons Bloggers
The link this week is open from Sunday July22 through Wednesday , July 25 till 7 pm, Pacific time.
Enjoyed so much the nature and places seen in your posts of the Seasons! Many, many thanks for your lovely and interesting posts:) Am also happy that you are not afraid to tell about the not-so-good things about your experiences -making your stories more authentic and real:)
These past two months have been filled with a lot of activity with family members, since most birthdays take place between May and November. Finally we could do something about our car situation. In Dec. we heard that they didn’t know how long our Maxima would hold up, so for the past half year have only been driving the Sprinter (not me, am not that brave to drive a long truck-type vehicle).
Finally Hubs got a hold of work for 6 weeks (jobs are scarce in a retirement area),
- enough to trade in both of our cars, and buy a newer used car.
- unexpected friends from the past reconnected with us,
- my brother emailed last week his 35 year old daughter, who are are close too, has cancer and needs surgery and chemo. The hardest is that it’s too far to visit her in the Netherlands. Good to know prayers to God, the Healer are powerful, so I have been praying up a storm.
When it’s hot, I like to be around water!
Water is our friend, but also can be our enemy
How can something that feels to soft and smooth to the touch, be so strong that it sweeps away whole cities?
This view if taken in the valley. Sorry, I need a panoramic lens here, but on the extreme left is the 2,425 ft. Yosemite Falls waterfall in the Sierra Nevada of California.. Peak flow is in May. This is the lowest of three tiers and fun to be splashed when you’re coming too close.
To do a small 6 x 9 inch plein air in oil of such a large view can be tricky.
Yet, “my vacation snap shot ” as I call them – is totally worth it. You who have read before about my plein airs, know people chat with me
when they see me painting (instant celebrity status, lol:))
The photo is not blurry – this is how I painted it:)
For more views of the complete waterfall, see Wikipedia.

When water falls
When it’s hot- between 90 and 100+ degr. F, what do you like to do (or not), and where would you like to be?
