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!
I’m having a lot of fun looking through my images for anything related to Becky’s January Squares theme “UP”. I’d forgotten about this critter I saw last March during our first week of COVID lockdown. I’m always amazed at how they can cling to anything in any position!
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.
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!
Becky’s January Squares looks like fun. The topic is “Up” and the photo must be square. Easy enough.
My neighbor’s dog were having a play-date and chasing each other with a ball. They were having such a good time I had to get the camera. I got this really fun photo from the ground-level view. It always makes me smile!
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.
