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!
This isn’t a year end wrap up. This is a I am so completely, bone tired exhausted, I’m happy this year is at an end.
I told you before I’d been posting happy quotes on the boards at work. The one I posted yesterday was
Celebrate endings – for they proceed new beginnings
Here are a collection of pictures I snapped the last couple of days to see the old year off.
Cheers to a great new year! 🍾🎉
Sitting in traffic made tolerable when I get to watch the sun rise. I’ve tried several times to capture the glorious-ness of it, but sadly the iphone just isn’t worthy.
Happy Friday and y’all have a lovely day!
What is your favorite photo compression app? I’m dying to know what folks are using.
This post has been in my head for awhile and its taken 3 days off work for me to get around to it.
The thing I have found most startling about this move is I’ve lost my “voice”. I have a hard time crafting the words and find the rhythm of writing I once had. I may have mentioned this before, I’m not sure.
The thing that I have enjoyed most about my move is having a closer connection to nature. When I walk out my door, I’m in 120 acres of dog heaven wilderness. Every morning Coe and I do about a mile while I drink my coffee and wake up. In the afternoon, depending on the weather, the heat, and our creaky joints, we do another lap, usually a bit longer.
I find sanity and serenity in these moments. I also find tremendous inspiration. I enjoy the sounds of crickets, frogs, birds, and cicadas all in some whirlwind of harmony. I just finished the best book, recommended by my dear friend Margie. There’s a line in the book, where the female character talks about most people don’t look up during the day. I cannot imagine not looking up and seeing the wonder that surrounds us.
I hope this inspires and reminds you to look at the world around you.
In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Inspiration.”
I am so far behind…
I’ve got pictures and projects to post galore
I sit and stare at a computer until I’m bored
I’ve started a dozen posts
before I can finish, I’m toast
My brain has turned to mush
My work is turning me into a lush
How I miss my Lula Harp time
I’ve got to find a way to unwind
Until then, please know I intend
to find my way home, again

I got home from getting my haircut just before 9pm and was hoping to add some pictures of the amazing moon that I saw on my drive home. It was huge and golden. Everywhere I turned it was there! I drove up Mt Tabor in an attempt to get some pictures, but nothing I got captured the hugeness of the moon or the awe that it inspired. To think that people were all tucked in for the night and missed that beautiful moon.
