Morning Bun in the Afternoon

Cold and overcast day so I decided to go with WS over to the local barista and have some coffee and a snack this afternoon.  This morning bun caught my eye and it sure tasted good; I ate the whole thing.  So what if it was 2:30 in the afternoon!

We then came home and took down some Christmas decorations.  Kind of a lazy day.  I liked it.  Hope yours was really good as well.  Namaste’

Oldie or Not?

I couldn’t resist getting this shot today as I pulled into the parking lot of a store.  When I realized how many cars were actually in the parking lot, I decided to get the heck out of there, thinking about the long lines inside at the cash registers.  Did I mention that I absolutely despise Christmas shopping?

Anyway, below is the car.  I believe it’s a vintage Ford because it has our state’s classic license plate, reserved for cars manufactured at least 25 years ago.  I think this one qualifies.

Almost to the end of our 366 project.  Can’t wait to see how my fellow 366’ers finish up this year.  Namaste’

Vision Board (Part 1)

There are no little events in life; those we think of no consequence may be full of fate, and it is at our own risk if we neglect the acquaintances and opportunities that seem to be casually offered, and of small importance. ~Amelia Barr

A dear friend of mine has posed a question to me more than once regarding how I find the time and where I get my ideas for this blog.  The only answer I have is that I ask.  I ask my higher self for insight about what to offer up to all of us next.  This 366 project is not just for me, nor is it just for you.  The truth is that everything that every one of us does affects the whole.

Today’s photo is a section of my vision board that hangs in my office.  I look at it every day and it makes me feel good.  When I look at the objects and phrases that I placed there, it raises my feeling of well-being, my physical, emotional and spiritual vibration.  I picked the images and phrases very carefully.  The ones that made me FEEL good.  Look for Part Two tomorrow. Namaste’

Where Did the Last 15 Years Go? To Memories Like These

I’m breaking the rules of my 366 project today because it’s my grandson’s 15th birthday, and I want to use a specific picture of him in this post.  I took it with my point & shoot camera back in October of 2010.  He was 13.  It’s important to me for several reasons:

  1. From the time he could walk, he would run away from me every time I brought out the camera so it was tough to get good pictures of him.  I had to be very fast on my feet and even faster with the shutter.  It became a game for us.  One day I chased him about a half mile.  (I was younger then and he was definitely worth it).  Now he’s a lot taller than me and I’m sure I couldn’t catch up with his long legs.
  2. When he was only three he came to spend a few days with me and Gramps (without his Mom and Dad) on his first trip away from home.  Every night I would lie down with him and read a story, and when I asked him which one he wanted, it was always the same … Toy Story.  He loved that book so much!  We laughed every night when I said, “Oh, no, not Woody again!”  Then I would read the book and he would fall asleep with his head on my shoulder.
  3. When I took this particular picture, I related the story to him. He smiled, didn’t say a word and posed for me.  What a miracle!
  4. The look in his eyes speaks volumes to me.
  5. Happy Birthday!!!!!!!!  I love you and miss you tons!
My "Woody"
