Winter has felt relentless so far this season. But through it all when you pause and look around you can see that it can actually be very beautiful. Seeing the beauty can bring joy to such a gloomy season.
The picture below is from right outside my door. Not so bad seeing that each day.
There are less animals out & about also (at least that we see). But every now & then you are fortunate to see one of God’s amazing creatures out frolicking. My friend took the picture below of the deer and I edited it. Continue reading →
It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and enjoy new things.
Isn’t it fun when you get something new? New furniture, a new haircut, a new car, etc. It’s even more fun when it’s something you can play around with.
I just got a new phone and I’m spending WAY too much timing playing around with it to get to know all of the things it can do.
I‘m especially excited about the camera. Here are a few of the very first photos I took with it.
We were taking a little walk in an area we love going to that’s by a river. We were shocked when we saw how flooded the usually beautiful walking and sitting area was. The water came way up into where the picnic tables and benches are. Notice the geese lying on the picnic table relaxing and catching some sun. It’s not bothering them. 🙂
It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and let the artsy fartsy side come out.
Sometimes you just never know “what you want to be when you grow up.” I still really haven’t figured it out and I should be retiring in less than 20 years. A lot of my life I feel like I was just “surviving.” I always felt lost and unsure of myself. So I made some bad choices and went down the wrong path for a while. Basically I was just trying to pay the bills, fit in, and trying to be happy. But it was when I started paying attention to God that things started changing…I started changing. I’m still a “work in progress” and will be all of my days. No one is perfect. But I’m not just trying to survive anymore. I’m trying to “live”…really truly “live.” Because it isn’t just about what we “do” to pay the bills, it’s who we are and how we live.
I still haven’t figured out “what I want to be” to pay the bills but I have discovered that I enjoy being creative. My love for animals is nothing new. I have loved them all of my life and have always tried to advocate for them. With discovering that I like being creative I can take my love for animals and my love for creating and combine them. 🙂
This week I took a photo of Cino and started playing around with it and turning it into artwork.
It’s so fun playing with images
And turning them into artwork
Editing them on your own
Or using filters can be a perk
It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and take it easy.
I hope you all enjoyed the holiday season as much as I did. It was so great to see family come home all the way from Norway to spend it with us.
I LOVE the holiday season and am always a little sad when it is over. I have been off work for a few weeks and am going back tomorrow. Like I saw on a Facebook post…I have to go back to “adulting.” Ugh. It’s always so hard that first day.
Since I am trying to feel ready for that first day back and get in a little more “take it easy” time today’s post is a short one. I captured this picture of Cino during my time off when I was playing around with my new camera (still trying to figure it out). She’s doing exactly what I will be doing right after I post this…chillin’. 🙂
Take a midday nap With your pet on your lap Take it easy for one day Just enjoy your Sunday
It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and enjoy the holidays!
It’s hard to believe tomorrow is already Christmas Eve. Time got away from me this year that I didn’t even send out Christmas cards. I have never done that before. Since it seems too late to send any out now I made one to post & share with all of my friends, family and with all of you. The picture of Cino & I is from a photo shoot a friend did months back. As you can see Cino LOVED it!
Things will be busy for the next few days for me as I am sure they will be for you. That’s why I am dedicating this Sunday’s post to wishing you a Merry Christmas. I hope you enjoy the photo and here is a poem I wrote. Continue reading →
