I’m joining Meg at Move the Chair again this month with her Take 12! challenge: I took 12 photos on January 12 spanning 12 hours.
I want to commit to doing Take 12! every month since it is fun to take that kind of ‘snapshot’ (ok, snapshots) of where I am that month. Maybe 2016 will be the year I achieve the goal. Here are my first 12 snapshots of the year.
For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.
Tuesday the 12th of January was that kind of day: pensive, quiet and lazy. Tim was in Camarillo at work, and I was in our motor home in Bakersfield with the critters. Let me take you through the day.
I got out of bed at, yes, 10:33 am. My apologies to those of you who aren’t retired, but I am living your dream! I woke at 9:30 and meditated and pondered life for that next hour in the womb that is my tiny bedroom. (That’s my grand-daughter Emma in the image.)
I’m watching a series called Orphan Black on Amazon Prime. Do any of you know it? It’s my go to for good feelings now. It’s a convoluted story about female clones all played by the same actress. It’s extremely well done and I’m on my third time watching it. I take the time to knit … this is a hat to wear with a scarf I recently finished. All for the colder weather in Idaho of course.
Often Buffy joins us when I read before sleep, but Tuesday was warm so she didn’t cuddle in.
I hope I didn’t bore you with my pensive January day. I found it rejuvenating and restorative. I wish you all a few days like this in a month. How many of you have the wonderful healing energy of your fur family on you every day? Don’t you love it?
As always I am so pleased that you visited. Your comments warm my heart and put a smile in my day.
All the photos were taken with my iPhone 6s and edited with the apps PhotoToaster and Enlight.
