Change – As I Saw

imageIn response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Change.”

For several minutes, the airplane I was on, flew over some amazing mountain peaks.  I was mesmerized!  The pilot had announced that we would be landing soon.  I never stopped looking out the window…I felt like I had entered into another planet!  As I was daydreaming, an unexpected scene jumped at me – A sudden change: from a massive collection of brownish mountains, with high and low peaks, to a massive collection of tiny and long metallic geometric structures!  San Francisco!  I was over the city I was about to visit!

A good day, today!

No reactions, no hot headed-ness, no judgments, no arguments, no attitudes.  Kept my cool and did not react instantly.  Was a busy day, but ended up having a good day, today!

8 AM: My husband dropped my daughter to school.  Gave me extra time to enjoy my breakfast.

8:30 – 10:30 AM: Workout time!

11:30 AM: Checked out my daughter from school for physical therapy for an elbow injury.

12 PM: My daughter had lunch at a local restaurant.  I filled out paperwork for therapy session.

1:00 PM: Therapy time!  The therapist asked my daughter her expectations from the session.  I quickly answered, “Good news. She wants to hear that she can go to gymnastics again.”

2:00 PM: Therapist said, “She’s all good to go to gymnastics, but she still needs to be back for two more sessions.  That’s to make sure everything is going good as she eases into it.”

2:40 PM: My daughter goes back to school.

2:45 PM: I had my lunch – late!  Salad with chicken, strawberries, dried cranberries.  Yummy.

4 PM: My daughter returned home from school, played with the dogs, then got ready for gymnastics.  Totally excited since she had missed several weeks of it.

4:15 PM: I called a photo studio to register my daughter for her senior picture session.  After holding for 15 minutes I got a representative.  But our connection cracking!  Heck, I was not going to call again and wait again.  Finally got good connection, I had to be outside my house.  I felt a big relieve!

5 PM: I called the gymnastic place to make a payment.  The director said that she will not charge me until she sees how my daughter does today.  I was impressed…great customer service!

5:30 PM: Took my beagle for a walk.  My husband took our pit bull.  Great walk!

6:30 PM: Dinner time!  I skewered marinated chicken.  Then grilled it with peppers, onions.  Baked a potato and split it in half.  My husband sautéed peas.  He loves peas.

7 PM:  Had dinner out on the deck.  Gave dogs chewy treats.  Lit a candle.  Enjoyed a beautiful cool evening.

8 PM: My daughter returned from gymnastics.  All went well…she can continue.  Good news!  She had dinner…Edamame Pasta and Fruit smoothie.

9 PM:  Daughter started on her homework.  Dogs decided to rest.  Husband went to play tennis.  I sat to blog.  Son rehearsing saxophone with a group of friends, should be coming home soon – 15 hours at school!  Yikes.

Day is over.  Evening has gracefully given into quiet sleepy night.

I really wanted to blog about this day.  Everyday can be like this.  Advice: Need to keep my cool, and not react instantly in any situation!  Since I want good days like today, I’ll be reminding myself of this advice frequently.  Good days to you all too:)

Doggy Photo Shoot Day #18

Thomas being Sir Thomas! Loving the cool weather.

Today’s walk was awesome.  Thomas loves the cool weather and dry grass.  He walked slow today:).  And, he thoroughly enjoyed rolling in the grass.    Then, he sat like Sir Thomas on the grass and rested for quite a while:).  I also sat beside him until he was ready to walk back home.  We had a blast!  

 

Monochromatic – A photo challenge

imageIn response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Monochromatic.”

I walk with one of my two dogs, Thomas, my beagle, everyday.  I am amazed by what I see  during these walks.  I see so much beauty, it intoxicates me.  I’m addicted.  I try to capture what I see.  I walk the same path, but the path does not offer me the same.  Each day is a “glass full” experience for me.  

…thank you for visiting my blog…love my blogger friends for supporting my stuff:)…see you soon!

Connected: Weekly Photo Challenge

image
People taking comfort in their connections!

Life is short and we must talk;

Don’t keep your emotions in a lock.

Love for each other is like a peaceful soothing song;

don’t wait for it to come because you’ll be waiting long.

Persons, animals and objects are all connected in the core, for sure;

explore these connections, it’s a source of happiness and cure;

Cure for hate, cure for unrest, cure for tears.

Our connections and our acceptance will give way to love;

Peace will prevail,

and away will fear sail.

From Every Angle: Weekly Photo Challenge

image image image image image image image

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “From Every Angle.”

Beautiful couple of roses!  They look beautiful from every angle!  They have been with me a while now.  I can’t remember the occasion now.  More than likely they were for my birthday or wedding anniversary or Mother’s Day or Valentine’s Day.  But they have been with me for a while.

They still glow in their fresh looking pinkish orange color.  I know one thing for sure that these were given to me with love.  I feel the love!  Each petal perfectly placed and perfectly dried now.  Dried but yet giving me warm feelings every time I go past them.

They are simple and elegant.  They have no life now, but they continue to emit beauty.    When my life ends, it’ll be like these dried roses…still beautiful, emitting beautiful memories for the living!

…Thank you for visiting my blog.  I’ll see you soon!
