Every Saturday we craft our posts from our imaginations and a theme photo which Alan posts on his (all things sepia and old) Sepia Saturday blog. This week he has taken Liz Stratton from "Attics and old lace" blog idea of couples sharing time together and/or going out.

What about the times you just can't swing going out?
A little short for going out this weekend, so this lovely couple from Pie Town, New Mexico are spending the evening inside the living room of their new adobe house. They originally arrived from Oklahoma seven years before this, and lived in a cabin until this adobe house was finished.

I'm ending with a Couple sharing their family traditions right from their beloved surroundings.
POI- a sacred. life giving food- sustaining living beneficial organisms into a higher form of energy-
