The blooms along the walk I took the girls to the gardens, the girls, I mean my daughter and her friend. I offered and they agreed to come along with me and dog, Velvet. It is nice for them to come even though where we were going is a little away from the towers where we could get a good connection. Their phones did not work well to Snapchat, Facebook, or Instagram. But they worked as well to play stored music and to take images of the nature and tons of selfies.
Here's the first park of my list of 21 parks to visit with a restroom, just in case I need it. I got there and they have 3 portable toilets. The park is huge and clean. There was a softball game or practice just finishing up. There are some picnic areas too and a lake.
I would post a picture of grand vacation but I don not have the money to go. What I have done are trips to the mall not to shop but to paint. Take a look at our work--simple and fun. My daughter enjoyed it too.
Enjoying a time outside, even if it's just outside a new church. It's the letter H week. What an inspiration to write on happiness. I am working on building my reserves. Over the span of many years, I have been burdened with stress that made my happy bank empty. I compiled a list of things I do and will do to make me happy.
Lakewood Park I like going to the park while taking my time walking with my dogs, and enjoying looking at whatever nature (or man-made beauty) has to offer. I am also getting old and in need of access to the restroom anywhere I go like every couple of hours or more often after a drink or coffee or tea). :)
Colors made with Color Pop as watermarked Inspired by ABC Wednesday and The Art Challenge , I am posting about my dogs tonight. And in the interest of time, an easy and quick entry for the art challenge is using what I already have--the pictures from today and the other day with my dogs.
The Bird and the Fish Hey, the link is still open! I am virtually running to submit my artwork here (if you can call it artwork) before the door closes. It is the third of the month and I am linking my first entry.
Charity for Children's Cause It's the third week of round 20 of ABC Wednesday. This week's letter is the letter C. A word that c omes to mind is the word c hallenge , particularly the challenge to benefit a c ause or c harity for c hildren.
It's half past eight in the morning. I just got back from my walk. My daughter is still sleeping and her friend staying for a sleepover is in a deep sleep. She did not move even after the dogs showered her with kisses.
I went outside and thought, "It's not so bad." There is beauty outside. I just have to choose the way there and capture the moment. I'm trying this free app on my phone, Dragon dictation , for the first time for my post. The first sentence worked great so far.
Another Week, Another Reason to Be Thankful This week is like a treasure hunt. I had to look for reasons to be grateful. I found them in my family, outdoors, my home, my bookcase, and my . . . Iphone! What do you know? *** I am still lucky I have many reasons to be thankful. Some people, some nations, some groups are less fortunate. Let us shower them with compassion. May the leaders and future leaders act with just and kindness to all.
These are the reading plans I plan to do. The Just1 B ible App The NABRE b ible is what I use. Hello, hello it's Thursday. I'm already a day late for ABC Wednesday.The letter for this week is the letter B . I choose to write about the B ible. I went to a B arnes and Noble B ookstore last week. I had an argument with my daughter and I decided to stop b y the b ookstore to get my mind off the issue. I'm not exactly a nerd, not really. B ut b ookstores are so amazing for me, I feel like a child in a toy store. I could spend hours in there just checking what they have. One section I checked was the B ible section. I really like the Catholic B ible, specifically the New American B ible Revised Edition ( NABRE ). The wordings are in American English and it is so easy for me to understand. I thought of b uying one, b ut the cheap me decided not to. I already have a Catholic B ible Digest at home, the St. Joseph edition.
It's summer. It's hot. When I get a chance, I go to the cafeteria to eat and see some view. I like looking at other people eating outside. I don't know most of them. I was sitting quite far across hiding under the awning as it was sprinkling a little bit. It feels good on my skin being hit by some air, however warm.
Snowball is not too sure about this 4th of July hat. Wally will keep the 4th of July hat on if I hold it in place, the whole time. Here are Snowball and Wally Posing with their non-favorite sparkly I can't get them to join the party Outside tonight with everybody
My contribution picture to OGIF orange group and Friday Greens. I think this qualifies for the orange or green group My dog snowball's picture, the mean one but cute He positioned himself under the giraffe this one day Like something for comfort or warmth, I can't say I was moody that morning but yet I had to smile Upon seeing him so cute I could not just deny If attention, he wanted, he got it alright As he helped me turn a dark day from gloomy to bright
We flew to California and back. It was nice to see a real body of water, not just a man-made lake for a change. Today, I am participating with Wednesday Waters . She looks at the view with a hunch on her back Looking a the waves so calm and unpacked It was Sunday morning in Emeryville's bay It was nice to get out, feel the breeze on our way
