Weekly photo challenge: Home

The weekly photo challenge was to depict home – to me, THEY are home….My husband, my daughters and my granddaughter…wherever we are together, living, loving, eating, playing….This applies to extended family members as well of course!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Unique

This week’s photo challenge was “In a new post specifically created for this challenge, share a picture that says UNIQUE to you.”  These are all unique to me in different ways.  Things that all by themselves might not make a huge impact, but due to their pairings, situations or surroundings, they become “unique”.   Hope you enjoy!

Daily Post: Asleep when the ball dropped

This is apparently the actual ball which will ...

I was awake when a multitude of time zones celebrated the beginning of the New Year, just not in this one.  This isn’t a departure from the norm for me.   I remember occasionally watching Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve (or whatever labels it’s been given throughout the years) and there was a time I used it as another excuse to party.  However, for most of my 47 years, I have been deep in sweet slumber as our little slice of the globe rang in the new.

The bad thing about this is…well, I can’t find anything bad about it.  I woke up early, feeling refreshed and ready to actually enjoy this first new day of this New Year.  This is day one of 2013; a new day, fresh grace, opportunities untold.

The first, unstained, unsullied page of a brand spanking new book and I own the rights.  The pen is mine, therefore so is the outcome.  How will this tale unfold?  What will this story bring?  Who are the new characters and how will they develop and interact?  Will the primary genre be romance, suspense, action?  There is much to be determined.  I have free will; I can choose.

I am thankful that I am not alone in this endeavor.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Surprise




This photo challenge seemed like it might be a little difficult until I was perusing my photo albums and remembered this particular day .  My little granddaughter, Ayda kept running towards the sea gulls on the beach.  I think we can safely say, she “surprised” them.  That was a wonderful day and we made some beautiful memories.
