These heavy lifters were not “messing around” in the heavy hammer competition at the New Hampshire Highland Games at Loon Mountain in Lincoln. It was amazing to watch and the effort on their faces tells a story of its own!
I don’t like taking photos of people, I feel like it somehow intrudes…but this I couldn’t refuse and besides these two love birds never even noticed. They were enjoying the Highland Games at Loon Mountain in Lincoln, New Hampshire.
The gardening season is coming to a close. It’s a bit of a sad time of year. For those of us that live in a climate that becomes harsh in the winter it’s a time of year when instincts from generations past seem to kick-in without warning. It’s time to be sure things are settled, put away, canned, covered, cut, stored…wood is stacked, shovels pulled to the front of the garage-mowers moved to the back. All sorts of things go into every day living and they are things you don’t really think about you just do them as your parents did and grandparents did. Mind you things are a lot easier than they used to be but I quite like to think about changing with the seasons and living in the world around you. What’s on your to-do list with the seasonal changes?
I have some gorgeous quilts hanging in my house; they are so pretty I hang them like art. Perhaps some day I’ll use them but for now I’m happy to look at them. Quilting is a talent I simply don’t have but I find the process and work of it fascinating! This is a small quilt of blueberries my mom is working on. It’s so much fun to see the fabric she chooses for the quilt depending on the scene. It’s not just the pattern of the cut or the actual quilting it’s also the fabric that works to tell the story. Quite an art form.
