Time for Make-up

Participating in Becky’s January Squares has given me some nostalgic wanderings through my photos. It’s incredible how quickly time passes! Here’s an UP of my sister providing my niece’s make-up for a Cheer competition a few years ago.

My niece is now a Senior in college and these days are long gone. I can hardly wait to see them again and re-connect. With the vaccinations coming, hugs are around the corner!

Cooped UP with the bunnies

I’m continuing with Becky’s January Squares project with the theme of UP. This is Princess, a kitty I saw in the rabbit coop while visiting a vineyard/farm in the Paso Robles, CA area.

Why is this kitty locked up with the bunnies?

I approached the coop and she came up to me, purring loudly and very friendly.

I asked about her when I was making my purchase and I found out her “crime”. Apparently she was too friendly to the guests who were there for a wine tasting. She was just too lovey and had to be cooped UP!

Quiet reflection moments

Quiet reflection moments

Cemetery-1030302

When I need a quiet place just to think and reflect, I find myself drawn to the beauty and peace of a cemetery. Far from being spooky, I find them places of beautiful sculpture that I find calming. In our older cemeteries, they are filled with the names of people no one now remembers or even knew. But I know they too had their struggles, hope, dreams, and challenges. This is a reminder to me that whatever is bothering me will eventually pass. Life goes on for me, for now. And I must seize the moments I have.
