Finishing up my 30 days of gratitude
We had unseasonably warm weather this week. I enjoyed spending time outside exercising and gardening. I even had the windows open one day.
On one of my runs I spied forsythia in bloom so I had to run home (literally) and grab my camera. In case you don’t know forsythia is a spring blooming flower!
My boys have mostly given up their stuffed animals but they still have their favorites which also happen to look a lot like their favorite dog(s).
8 is great. When we walk together he has his own rhythm, his own pace. His arms are flying, his legs jerking and jumping. He skips, he runs, he has fun. Sometimes I join him and he thinks it’s funny, other times he gets annoyed but then when I stop he asks me to do it again.
Today I am grateful that this photo is featured on Mortal Muses. I took this image while on a walk with my mom and son, the birds were on a branch and my mom pointed them out, I took too long to get my camera in position and one flew off but I clicked anyway. At the time I was disappointed but later, when I saw the clarity and composition I knew it wasn’t all that bad. This image was shot with my Canon, once it was uploaded to the Apple Photo Stream I imported it onto my iPad where I edited it with Instagram. Which leads me to my final remark about gratitude, I am so grateful for technology which makes this all possible.
