Pull Up a Seat – Week 1 of 2022

Today has been the coldest day so far for 2022 or at least it seemed that way as I tried to take photos in High Park. In order to take photos it was necessary to remove my gloves and after about 20 minutes of taking them off and on to push the shutter button my fingers on my right hand were close to acquiring frost bite. I quickly returned to the car and place my hands over the heating vent after cranking up the heat full blast.

The cold, however, didn’t seem to deter some folks from finding a resting spot on some of the park benches. Here are a few of those brave souls.

Looking Up – Getting Up and Moving Forward

On Day 7 we need to find joy in the world and not look down or backwards. Children teach us to look up and out as they explore their world. Our granddaughter brings us UPmost joy. I know it should be utmost but due to the challenge I’m taking some literary license.

The first photo was taken by her father when they went on a hike through the woods. He swears she did not pose for this shot. This stance came out of the blue. The second photo was taken by me. She was looking up at me as I stood on the porch (six feet apart).
