Happy Friday! This is one of those weeks that felt like it would never end. I had just pulled on my pajama pants this evening and had a moment of near panic that I didn’t take a picture today. I quickly remembered this morning’s gorgeous sunrise and the few pictures I snapped in my sleep deprived daze. #365project #photoaday Cheers to no alarm clock on Saturday!
I’ve driven past these gates countless times in the last three years, but something tonight caught my eye. I parked and walked back. Snapping away, I saw the big smiley.
This is today and yesterday’s #365project #photoaday.
These cotton ball clouds were the view on my way to work the other morning. One of the fellas on the #365project said in Italy they have a saying that sheep in the sky carry buckets of rain. Sure enough, they dumped those buckets a few hours after I took this photo.
I have fallen behind here with my #photoaday but have been posting for the #365project. To get caught up, I’m lumping them all together here.
With the snow a too recent memory, I’ve been craving color and have been drawn to anything bright. This evening’s sunset was brilliant. As were the flowers and peppers at the grocery.
This weekend Coe and I got out for a walk while it was warm. For being such a gorgeous weekend, we managed to find some moments of silence at the park.
This was the other evening at sunset. When I snapped this, I was drawn to the clouds. After looking at it on the screen, it looked like a mysterious tunnel to another story.
I am not a poet. Words just come to me occasionally and if I don’t put them down on paper they swirl in my head incessantly. So that’s what I’m doing today.
Cricket chirps fill the air
Turtle noses vanish and reappear
Humidity so thick you can cut
Happy dogs enjoy the muck
Fall feels far away
Savoring a summer’s lazy day
Oh Happy Friday!!
I’ve been sitting in a classroom for 4 weeks being talked at. You may recall my work rant awhile back that I didn’t get xyz at work. The Rolling Stones had it right. You get what you need and not necessarily what you want (clearly paraphrasing). It’s hard to see that sometimes they aren’t the same thing. After week 2 of this class, I was really questioning whether I wanted xyz. Now after some practical application, I’m still unsure, but feel a teeny bit better.
I really try to be a glass half full kinda gal. So this class has been a test of my good humor. We had 3 instructors who rotated. One talked so loud it bordered on yelling. If someone asked a question she didn’t want to answer or had already been asked, she talked louder and faster. Another instructor is super smart, so smart that he’d go off on these random technical tangents and lose everyone who had been moderately following along. The third, was fairly well balanced, engaging and informative without talking down.
Mr Super Smart has been our coach and go-to guy since we’ve been out of the classroom. And now that he’s allowed to go a little more off script, he’s a great coach. Answers questions so you can understand what needs to be done and isn’t condescending in the slightest. Hope of understanding this new stuff is still yet a mere pin-prick…
The summer seems to be lingering and fading at the same time. I hate waking up and leaving home while it’s still dark. I swear just a week ago I was wearing my sunglasses on my way in! Now I get home and have what feels like mere minutes of daylight left… sigh…
With my “school schedule” I’ve not gotten my long lunch walks. They’ve turned into walks in the office building garden. Not nearly as satisfying as walking along the river or meandering through town, but almost as interesting. With being talked at all day and staring at a computer, my brain has turned to mush. All the creativity I felt I had drained out my ears while I slept dreaming about nonsense work, formulas, forms, rules, rum running, the roaring 20’s and home repairs.
I saw my first fall leaf this morning, and as of tomorrow, fall is really here. I’m not quite ready, but with a new season comes new ideas, new projects, and new colors.
This is the sky I saw Saturday morning when I left the house for my morning walk. How simple, yet so beautiful. This tree is in my yard and so often we overlook what we see in front of us every day!
In keeping with the original challenge, this was taken with my iphone. I love it for photos. It is always with me and takes pretty decent pictures. To quote Derrick of my sight picture, “The best camera you’ve got is the one in your hand”. Truer words were never spoken
