Sunday Stills.....Home

Home is so many things...... The structure itself...we live in a monstrous Victorian that is still full of surprises after all these years.... Like the Easter Eggs in movies and never know what little carving or molded strike plate or such that you might find.

Home is also family of course and ours is busy and close and full of interactions all day, every day.

These guys are important to our home...but sometimes we tend to think of them more as home wreckers

It is also favorite objects, plants, animals, the tangible things that make up our world.

And the land....can't forget about the land.

Then there are the intangibles that make up our spirit lives....home is a huge thing there. I love to be home so much I am nearly a hermit.....I am looking forward to other people's takes on home as well.

Lovely, Lovely.
It's such an old standard that we overlook the great truth in 6 words:
"Home is where the heart is."
Lots of heart in your place, Marianne.

Cathy, you are so right. Home is indeed where the heart is. Thank you so much for your kind words and a special Merry Christmas to you and Keith

Linda, Linda P is hosting it. Not sure what form it will take, but she is offering ideas for us to play around with and I for one am delighted. I missed it!

Jan, thanks. We used to ride by on our school bus, my brothers and I, never knowing that anyone lived here. We called it the haunted house and always looked up the hill when we went by. If anyone ever told me I would someday live here I would have been stunned. Never even met Ralph until I was in my 30s, although, had he ridden the bus he would have been on ours. But he didn't ride the bus. Isn't fate funny?

Linda, that would be utterly amazing. we would love to meet you too. I have to thank you for opening my eyes to Alberta and ranching and so much about your life there. I love seeing your magical photos of your life and of the land and animals and birds around thanks!

Anon, thank you so much for doing so and for your kind words. The Farm Side is how this all got started and it sure has been fun over the years. Merry Christmas!

Nita, thanks! That goes ditto.
