RDP Tuesday – Indefatiguable

….thanks to the Ragtag community for hosting RDP Tuesday https://ragtagcommunity.wordpress.com/2023/05/23/rdp-tuesday-indefatigable/

There are days when I feel like the Energizer Bunny. I can keep going and going but I do eventually crash ….for days after. Kids and animals never seem to get tired or at least that’s what they want us to think. I also have two marathon runners in the family. My husband ran marathons in his 20s and 30s and years later our oldest daughter started running marathons. She gets better with every race. They also never seem to tire during a race.

Nothing says frolic more that young children and dogs playing.

Weekly Prompts Wednesday Challenge – Bored

thanks to Sue W. and GC for hosting Weekly Prompts https://weeklyprompts.com/2023/01/18/weekly-prompts-wednesday-challenge-bored/

How does one convey bored in a photograph? Is it someone napping in the middle of the day, a grim look on a child’s face or the sad look in an animal’s eyes?

It’s hard to see what someone is feeling in a photo unless you use your imagination.

Help, I want to be anywhere but here……

I’m so bored I’m going cross-eyed

It’s hard to tell with Olive from the look on her face

I know you’d rather be roaming free in the park

Probably more tired than bored

Our First Walk on the Beach

last week my daughter, daughter-in-law and I drove up to Christian Island to open up our cottage for the season

We lucked out with the weather. It only rained at night and the hot blistering temperatures from the west haven’t yet arrived this far east. After spending the evening cleaning the inside of the cottage (sweeping out the mouse poop, airing out the cushions, setting up the fridge, making up the beds, and putting away the food) we decided to explore the beach the next morning.

Luckily we have a beach again. The water levels have receded and the numerous trees that had started to grow on the beach have disappeared.

A Photo a Week Challenge – Babies

….thanks to Nancy Merrill for hostingĀ A Photo a Week Challenge

I love babies and our family is expecting a new one in January. For this challenge I had to go back into the archives to bring you baby pictures.

Our granddaughter has always loved the camera. In the second shot you can see how she perked right up when she knew that her photo was being taken.20160713-dsc0463jpg-27904656623-o
