I rarely combine two challenges into one but this shot in High Park today worked for Pull Up a Seat and January Squares. Day 15.
I’m a little behind so I’m catching up with three squares today. The next two are for days 13 and 14. The first one is Looking Up the Path. The path is almost completely hidden because of the leaves but there is a path there and the following photo is Uprooted. In the naturalized area of High Park the trees fall naturally when they die unless they are a hazard to the walkers and then they are cut down to avoid any accidents.
In our extended family we have three special pUPs. You’ve seen all of them at one time or another on my blog. Recently I posted a photo of Olive jumping up on the beach and I explained to some of you that Olive needed surgery. Well here she is back from the vet hospital. She ruptured a disc in her neck and after the surgery her prognosis is good. No jumping or running for awhile. That will be hard for this little girl.
The other two dogs are Frances who is 14 and Lucy who is 12 1/2. Their days consist of sleeping, sleeping, sleeping and eating and then sleeping some more.
My granddaughters are already gearing up for their future occupations. Our five year old has a keen interest in science as you can see in the second photo where she is experimenting with things she found on her walk that day. I love the safety glasses…..safety first.
The youngest granddaughter got right into the middle of her father’s workout and is clearly gearing up to be a fitness instructor. Thanks to both my children who are the parents of these darling girls for providing today’s photos for SquareUp.
The CN Tower in Toronto was for many decades the tallest structure in the world. It is often lit up in different colours to celebrate special days such as Pride Week, when the tower is lit in rainbow colours. When our sports teams win championships the tower lights up in the team colours.
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).
Olive loves to jump. How do you discourage that behaviour after one (Olive) slips a disc. The pain meds and muscle relaxants have slowed her down somewhat but I think this jumping thing is in the Frenchie DNA.
