Love Your Selfie

Today's Fun Monday challenge is about us, "tell us a little something about yourself AND post a selfie of yourself sticking your tongue out. Let's be silly!"

Let see what should I tell about me. I am a wife, mother of two men, grandmother of four sweet grandchildren, and a retired science teacher. I have lived in Indiana all of my 67 years, the first twenty in Fort Wayne and the other 47 here in Lake County. I have recently been called a flaming liberal, which is an epithet that I can embrace.

I enjoyed my years of teaching and am learning to enjoy retirement. I like wildflowers and spend time trying to identify and to photograph various species. Some of my time is spent volunteering. I tutor at a local elementary school, and I am active in an organization called Coats for Kids (and families). 

As most grandparents feel, our grandchildren are some of the best blessings of old age. Our four children live about two and half hours away from our home, but my husband and I try to spend as much time as possible with our childrens' children.

Although I do not think that I am particularally vain, I am not wild about the selfie picture. I tried to smile while sticking out my tongue. In any event, here is the picture.

Out the Door

Oh, happy day, Fun Monday has been resurrected. Our task for this Monday is to show the scene out the front door. Our door is new as some intruders decided to kick-in the old one. on November 5, 2013.

Outside the new door is our front porch. Beyond the porch is an old pond that my husband and I converted to a planter. The dried plants in the planter are a chrysanthemum and some marigolds from last fall. Although the temperature is warm today, spring is making a late arrival to northwest Indiana.

Fun Monday is now on Facebook. Check it out join in the fun.
