The kettle is on and the pot of coffee is fresh. Please come on in. I look forward to the company on this windy, grey day.
I haven’t sat with you for a coffee and chat for many weeks. I’m sorry. I just don’t know where the time is going. Which makes me even sadder.
Life is too damn short to not take make the time to sit and have coffee with friends.
Today I’m sipping slowing and savoring my favourite ice latte while listening to my hubby play his online game. I am intensely grateful that I get to do this today. So much so I can almost physically feel it.
My son’s best friend lost his Dad last night to cancer. This wonderful man was kind and generous… full of laughter. My heart breaks for my son’s friend, for his siblings, his family and for his Mom. My heart is aching for my son. How do I help him help his friend?
This past week was thankfully full of family time. Last weekend’s Thanksgiving dinner, wandering the craft shows with my hubby and kids, out to a play at the Shaw Festival with my sister & brother-in-law. I also got to watch my son, his friend and their team play and win a football game. His friend was so happy … he got a sac and his jersey was signed by his Dad. It was a good day for football and a good memory.
For this week’s challenge, I thought I’d use some photos from a series of photos that I took last spring. Since it is Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada I’ve been thinking of the young turkey that walked our neighbourhood for a couple weeks.
Seeing this visiter made our ordinary street a little less pedestrian. 😉
She? He? Wandered through everyone’s yard as if she didn’t have a care in the world. I guess since it was months away from Thanksgiving at that point she didn’t!
WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge:
…is anything but “pedestrian,” which also means “lacking inspiration or excitement; dull.” It seems fitting that such a beautiful walkway is the path that connects people of different languages and cultures.
What does pedestrian mean to you? Perhaps this is a great chance to go out and practice some street photography. Maybe you’ll capture something truly “pedestrian” — something that could use a dose of inspiration. Regardless of how you interpret this challenge, I’m looking forward to seeing the results.
This looks like so much fun! A great way to spread smiles and kindness! I found the below post/information when I was looking at related Facebook pages for The Kindness Rocks Project via Michaels announcing:
There are a million ways to be kind, help us paint them all!
We’ve joined forces with The Kindness Rocks Project to kick off the 1 Million Kindness Rocks Challenge! (posted August 9th on Michaels Facebook page)
I’m going to share some here in Ontario! Where will you be “hiding’ your rocks?
