My favourite from 2017…

Wow. That’s a tall order to fill.

From the photo that generated the most reactions on your blog to the one that has the deepest emotional pull on you, define “favorite” in whatever way works best for you. Your chosen image doesn’t have to be one you’ve already shared in a previous Photo Challenge. Anything goes, as long as it’s a photo from 2017. If you want to share several images, that’s fine too — a “best of 2017” gallery could be fun if you can’t settle on one photo.

The photo that received the most attention was a little visitor to my garden.


I do love this visiting bee, but it’s not my favourite moment/photo from 2017.

Perhaps this photo… I definitely am tickled pink with it. (giggle) And it was a wonderful day just hanging out taking photos with my daughter.

But I think my favourite photo of 2017 would be one of my winter ones. I took these photos while out walking. I’m proud that this past year I continued with doing things such as walking in the cold, to work towards a healthier me.

Thank you for visiting. I wish you and yours a wonderful holiday season and that 2018 is full of kindness & gratefulness.

Grateful for newspaper fliers.

For years our son and daughter delivered the weekly fliers (advertising papers). When our daughter went away to university, I decided to keep her route.  This way I know that I get at least an hour walk each week!

Most weeks my hubby and I walk the route together. It’s a nice time to just be together, ktjgxgogcwalking and chatting uninterrupted. We chat about our week, the kids, our dreams for the future. It’s nice with busy schedules and daily ‘stuff’ to have time just walking with him. I look forward to it.

Well .. even the rainy nights but then it’s because he does half the route and I do the other half. I’m grateful then for not having to be in the rain for the whole hour! lol

This week I’m grateful for our weekly walk delivering the fliers. I’m grateful for the time to connect with my hubby each week.

Colline was grateful for headache tablets. 

What are you grateful for this week?
