Saturday: Me Time.

Day 198 of 365:

{Simple, Single Image on Saturday}

Days 196 and 197: migraine.

Today I ran and ran and ran around, making up for the time that was lost to me during the previous 5 days.  Yoga class, errands, groceries.  Laundry, folding laundry, tidying up, more laundry.  Dishes.

And then I found myself with 45 minutes of nothing-ness….all to myself.

I found my book and a quiet spot where no one would expect to find me.  Except one of the dogs, but she always knows where I am.

I found time to be selfish and indulgent….yes, reading is an indulgence to me these days….


Me time on a Saturday.

Look Up. {#4}

Day 194 of 365:

{Weekly Photo Challenge: Look Up.}

Fourth post using this week’s photo challenge theme?  Sure, why not.  I am having fun with this one.  It might have something to do with the fact that, when it comes to physical stature, I am what you might call “vertically challenged”.  I spend most of my time looking up at things because I am so damned short….  🙂

Also, the act of looking brings a sense of optimism, and I think just lately, we could all use a little more of that.  Figuratively speaking.

I would also like to point out that I dusted off my real camera for this shot, something of rarity for me these days….  IMG_2337Clematis.  I have tons and tons of this climbing vine in my front garden. It’s a lovely, cascading waterfall of purple petals.  So here I am, looking up at – all 10 feet of it.

I am so glad I had the good sense to grab my “real” camera to take this shot.  I love the way that purple came out, all rich in texture, captivating, and splendid.

How about you?  What do you look up at?
