If we were having coffee.. walks, books and stars.

If we were having coffee I’d invite you to the front porch because my living room is still cluttered with stuff from our camping trip and our daughters upcoming move.

I’d tell you about some of the photos I took with my phone while camping. I’m looking forward to seeing how they can fit into photo challenges and some of my other posts. I took my regular camera with me but didn’t even take it out. For the most part my phone takes better photos. I guess it’s time to consider a new camera because my phone doesn’t do distance or true macro shots. That’s a good reason to get a new camera isn’t it?Photo_2016-08-22_01-22-56_PM

I love to go for walks through Rock Point Provincial Park to see what little things catch my attention. My hubby walks with me and for some reason seems to enjoy watching me take photos. The walks through the park and the sunset walks along the beach are so relaxing. It was a wonderful way to wrap up the summer.

Are you reading a book right now? I had hoped to read more during our vacation but I brought the 4th book in The Clifton Chronicles by Jeffrey Archer. The problem is I’ve just read the first and should have brought the 2nd book. Oh well. I had other things to keep me occupied and I enjoyed watching both my children reading. It’s a common sight to see my daughter reading but my son.. it’s a rare pleasure to see him so into a book. He was reading Eragon, the first novel in the Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini.

There’s so much to love about camping. The walks, photos, quiet reading and nights by the fire watching the sky fill with stars. Sitting there listing to the loud symphony. The frogs and the insects were singing their little hearts out. That was my ‘grateful for’ topic for this week. Colline over at Colline’s Blog got me started writing a weekly post. Being mindfully grateful is a good thing.

Do you stare at the stars? No matter how old I get I’m just so in awe of them.

Would you like some more coffee? How was your week?

  1. Today I was just thinking I hope it starts to get dark sooner so I have chance to look at the stars while swimming outside (the pool closes for the season on the 14th of Sept). I am reading the Orphan Train at the moment – it was recommended to me by Betty Louise from the coffee share community. I like it a lot so far. Great grasshopper pic 🙂 Wishing you a great week ahead!
