When I was a kid, I used to dream of riding around the sky on a cloud – much like the Genie level of the Super Nintendo Aladdin game where you could hop cloud to cloud. When I found out clouds couldn’t actually hold a person, I imagined falling gently through them, mouth wide – swallowing the cold deliciousness like ice cream.
Even though it was an accident (and probably mistake) I like that you can see my hands and camera in the reflection of the window.
What do your friends say about you behind your back?
As soon as I looked at this photo to write a description, I yawned – so it really must be contagious!
Yes, those are tomato plants in garbage cans. My mini garden is growing – chard lettuce and beets are sprouting. The tomatoes haven’t grown an inch and it’s not hard to imagine why – I don’t think we’ve had sun in days. But at least they haven’t died!
I was on fire on Tuesday after a great day at work and a Team in Training run.
You can barely see my reflection here too – in the pot. I’m lurking this week.
What a guy. Love this photo. And the guy.
When life gives you lemons…
Thursday did not go as planned in many, many ways but I managed to make lemonade.
Alex commented, “there’s something about driving over the Golden Gate on a nice day that just reminds you how beautiful the city is.” So true.
Think Like a Tree
by Karen I. Shragg
Soak up the sun
Affirm life’s magic
Be graceful in the wind
Stand tall after a storm
Feel refreshed after it rains
Grow strong without notice
Be prepared for each season
Provide shelter to strangers
Hang tough through a cold spell
Emerge renewed at the first signs of spring
Stay deeply rooted while reaching for the sky
Be still long enough to
hear your own leaves rustling.
We visited a friend with baby chicks that they plan to raise for eggs. What sweet, happy creatures they are!
