The Fizzle

The Strawberry-5

Once again, I failed to bring my camera along with me for the day (it appears I am that photographer, the one who forgets her camera), so my friends I have settled for the strawberry drop.  This seems to be another one of my favorites.  Tomorrow I shall try to once again, bring my camera along for the day in order to capture something different.

I really do try to be a nice and reasonably easy person to get along with, but every now and then some ugliness will eek out.  I am blessed to have a merciful God who forgives this moments that this awful ugliness comes out and also tomorrow is another day to do the right thing, to handle situations with grace and be the person God has designed me to be.  So with that, I will bid you all a farewell to get some rest so I may refresh, recharge and be better tomorrow.

Good Night beautiful friends.  Remember, be a blessing and be blessed, keep it positive and smile!!!


The Round

The Round

Yes, it is another cat picture, but with a twist.  I arrived home late, I am tired, so I went with something quick and easy.  I know I said I was going to try something different, however, that can only happen if I remember to take my camera with me.

So yesterday as I was driving home, I was caught up in a little traffic and for an instant, I was upset, but then I reminded myself … At least I can drive down the road that is not covered with water, to a house that is not under water and I am able to work everyday!!! A reminder of how blessed we truly are everyday!! Be thankful!!! 

Good Night beautiful friends, sweet dreams!!! Remember, be a blessing and be blessed, keep it positive and smile!!! 🙂

The Slash

The Water_-2

Here you have it, another water photo.  I have decided that I need to move myself to open my horizons when it comes to taking photos.  I have learned a lot, but lately I have not really put much thought into them, just taking a picture of whatever and sometimes it feels like I have done it all before, you know same old same old.  So without really committing myself, I shall try to reach into the depths of my photography part of my brain and come up with something different and new.  With that, I will cut this short and bid you all a good evening.

Good Night beautiful friends.  Remember, be a blessing and be blessed, keep it positive and smile.

The Tabby

The Tabby

Yes, it’s another cat picture, I just cannot help myself, seriously just look at this little girl, she just sits there with her cute little face.

Today I am so thankful for so many things, but most of all I am thankful for the kind and generous folks who volunteer their time to help out when needed.   It’s difficult to step out of your comfort zone and go to an unknown area to help others in need.  I have not done such a thing, although I help out people in my area,  I have not stepped out of my comfort zone to so, I will work on being more generous with my time and more courageous to step out of my comfort zone.

Good night beautiful friends.  I hope all is well in your area and your are dry (I am thankful for being dry).  Remember, be a blessing and be blessed (you know helping out others when you can), keep it positive  and smile!!!

The Back II

The Backside II-2

Once I purchase a flower, the plan is to photograph that flower until the petals fall off.  Well, the petals are still on the flower, so here you have another photo of the flower.

I am tired tonight and I have so many thoughts floating around this head of mine, so I think I will keep this short tonight.  Yesterday while at work I was working on something and I said “I am so stupid”, I really didn’t think anyone heard me, however, they did and they were very nice to say that I am not stupid.  I realized that I say this to myself to many times and I must stop.  I must be kinder to myself, so I can be kinder to others.

Good Night beautiful friends.  Remember, be a blessing and be blessed, keep it positive and smile.

The Sky

The Sky II-2

Look, it’s the sky again, I have a fascination photographing the sky.  It’s always so beautiful and colorful!!

Today I read this:

“Be the cheerleader in people’s lives! It’s astounding what people can do when they have someone who believes in them!”

This is so true, people need to be reminded they can do that very thing they think they cannot, that they are good enough, sometimes that all it takes.  Let’s lift up our friends, help them to shine, encourage them and believe in them!!! I am very blessed to have some mighty fine folks who encourage me and believe in me, even when I don’t believe in me.  But most of us need that ‘cheerleader’, to help us during those doubting times, believe in us when we are having those moments when we are having trouble believing in ourselves.

Good night beautiful friends, I am off to dream sweet dreams.  Remember, be a blessing and be blessed, keep it positive and smile!!

The Sky

The Sky-7

Once again the picture I had in mind did not work out at all, the picture itself looked good and it worked out, but the model was not really a good one.  I do not look myself in photos, so I deleted every single one of them, however, I did have the presence of mind to take a quick photo of the sky for a backup.  You know you have those who look great and are so photogenic and then there is me.  Those who can’t be photographed, do the photographing. (thought that was good)

We should all strive to do for others, to be there for others, lending that helping hand and do these things without screams of adulation I might add.  So many do for others behind the scenes,  quietly and you never even know, because they do not do for the pat on the back or the praise, they do from their heart, that feeling you get from lifting the burden off the shoulders of another.

I am going to veer off and express how absolutely happy I am that tomorrow is Friday!!!

With that I will bid you all a good night friends!!! Remember, be a blessing and be blessed, keep it positive and smile!!!

The Water Drop

The Drop-12

My original plan didn’t really work out like I had hoped, so I went I different way.

Have you ever stopped to think about the things you say to folks? Do the words you use hurt or help people?  I have really been thinking about this today.  I really need to keep my words in check, because words can and do hurt.   We should try to lift others up with our words, encourage others with are voice and just be a source of light to help others on this journey.  I know I have lacked in this area, but I shall strive to be that source of encouragement for others.

Good night my friends.  Remember, be a blessing and be blessed, keep it positive and smile.

The Super Closeup

The Super Closeup

I bet you thought I would post a picture of the eclipse, well surprise, surprise I decided to go a different way for several reasons.  First, I figured there would be plenty of great shots out there and I know I was not equipped to do so. Second, in my location it was not a full eclipse, even though any picture would have been a prize, I just didn’t really desire to take a picture.  Third, I was a little laid back and didn’t get myself motivated to get a filter for my lens, whether new or homemade.  So having all these things said, you have a another picture of a flower.

So since it is late and I went on and on about the eclipse, I will call it a night and bid you all farewell.  Good night and sweet dreams.  Remember, be a blessing and be blessed, keep it positive and smile.


The Side Ways

The Closeup-2

I am really not sure what I was going for here, but I do like the results.  I really love trying different things and trying to come up with something creative.

This week has been a week for sure.  I spent part of the week dog sitting for some sweet friends, of course I now miss those said dogs.  I am so happy to be home, but their dogs are the cutest and lovable dogs ever and yes I miss them.  Now, my mind is wandering all over the place and really not sure what to speak about, shall I speak about love, kindness, generosity …. that is what has been on my mind.  I really should have to talk about this, these should be actions, we should be doing and acting upon them.

Good Night beautiful friends!!! Remember, be a blessing and be blessed, keep it positive and smile.
