It's Raining Shoes!

Remember the saying 'waiting for the other shoe to drop'? Without going into great detail, I've had a lot of shoes dropping on me during the past three weeks.  It started when I backed into a car. No worry. I'm fine and so is my car. Then a series of other happenings: appointment canceled without notification (gas and time wasted), health crises of two family members, husband's work slowdown (picked up now), propane leak in the furnace (repairs the cost of a week's pay-ouch!), and finally ANTS in the kitchen. Whew! I think it's finally over. So now when I here the phrase 'it's raining cats and dogs' I will always think of 'raining shoes'!

Now for a 'walk in the park'. The following shots were taken a few years ago of a local 4H center park, my favorite place to take a walk. I haven't been able to visit there in about 4 years and I really miss it. And no, I didn't doctor these really is very 'green' under the tree canopy there. I have many more pictures of this wonderful woodland that I'll share in the future.


  1. I hope there are no shoes left to fall. You deserve a break. Beautiful pictures.

  2. Lets hope no more shoes drop , soudns like you have had more than your share. Love your photos :-)

  3. Hi, Roxanne. Ain't it the truth? When it rains, it pours. Lovely photos, however, to cheer us up! And I enjoyed your photos of the quilt show, especially the quilters quilt (very refreshing). A lot of talent and creativity in that show!
