Photo a Day May: Your personality – 31.

I mixed up yesterday’s and today’s challenge but alas, here we are. Today’s challenge is your personality. So, for all intents and purposes, mine.

I whipped up a little photo grid and pulled together some photos from the last couple of months that accurately depict a large part of who I am. The rest, you can make your own conclusions for all I care. ;)

Lover. I try to just love. Feel it. Give it. Spread it. Share it. Its hard sometimes but we all could use a bit more of it. That and hugs!
Mother. Self explanatory… ish. This one has huge amazing…. implications? Right word? I am a mom. i am mom. Mom I am. Is it all I am? No. Is it a ginormous part of who I am? Absofrigginlutely. Aaand I love it.  I really ought to expand on what that means for me, ’cause its kind of a big deal. Quite the journey.
Friend. Love em. Miss em. Need em. Cherish em.
Pet owner and lover. Well again. Speaks for itself. We love our dog, and the love between Cade and Lily makes me melt every single day. This pooch has taught us a whole heck of a lot.
Mentor. Leader.Student. Teacher. These all sort of group together for me. I want my life to constantly intellectually challenge me. I want to always be learning about myself, the world, people around me, my family, my partner. Sometimes I want to turn the brain off, yes, and sometimes I do. But generally…
Foodie – in the sense that I just love it. Everything about it. I love trying new things and experimenting.
Advocate. For human rights, ethics, birth rights, children, self-love, women’s health. Gosh I just opened up a can of worms.
We’ll just close it for now…
With regards to health though – this is huge. Personality or not, its related to the food thing and the desire and need to be healthy and treat our bodies kindly by fuelling them with health in so many different forms.
Arts and crafts. I love creativity and I think its a huge passageway into a very special part of our soul. We need to feed and nurture it in whatever way works for us.  Its different for you and I. It is also connected to spirituality and the idea of being grounded and centred. These are huge aspects of me and something I strive towards daily. Whether its a personality thing or not is debatable. To me it feels more internalized than that. But it works and I can run with it.

What would your personality look like in a photo grid?

Photo a Day May: Something beautiful – 30.

Today, amidst the hustle bustle of the work week and the congestion of traffic. And the insanity that life can sometimes be. And the longing to just beeeee with my boy.  There was beauty. You sometimes have to search high and low to find it. I know I do. But its usually there, somewhere. That is all part of the journey, is seeking out the beauty, and oh what a journey this can be.  To be honest, I am constantly surrounded by a lot of beauty. Theres the obvious people, things, activities, thoughts that generate such.  They keep me going, and if I may there are even days where I classify myself into that group. C’mon, if I cannot see my own self in a desirable light, how the F am I supposed to find it elsewhere? Thems the breaks, s’pose thats why some days are just so dang difficult, why some days that glorious light can be so darn hard to find.
But where I was going with this was, today I saw the sun and it looked and felt wonderful. I was on the way to pick up lovebugboy from daycare and life was good, my new prescription sunglasses (!!!) were working their magic, and the day was overoverover. That sun shone and shone and warmed and warmed. Just the right amount too. I was not scorching nor was I blinded and headachey and blinded by the brightness. It was perfect, balmy, and beautiful. To top the night off, we went for our usual evening walk and that fresh newly summer air was just right.
What was that something beautiful in your day today?

Photo a Day May: A number – 29.

I tried to be a human 7, a human 4, and a human 1.  Cade and I tried to be a human 1 together. But it was not as perfect of a capture as this. This is what I wanted. This is a photo of a number. And oh so much more.

(more…)

Photo a Day May: The weather today – 28.

Gloomy, rainy and windy.
Instead of hitting the pavement as planned this afternoon, we did not brave the rain and hit up some friends’ houses instead. 
It was so so very nice to wake up on this freeee Monday morning, have a leisurely coffee with my son, and watch him and Lily play together.  We had such a lovely day together, we really did. Full of smiles and moods that were good.

Photo a Day May: Something sweet – 27.

Coke floats.
It is indeed something sweet. 
I simply just had to have it, in order to fulfill today’s challenge.  Rrriiiight. 
Well thee most awesome toddler had gone to bed.  Poochy was being camera shy, and K & I were not up for sweetness.  So coke float it is.  Something sweet oh yes, in so many, so many ways. 
Happy Sunday all. And the only reason I can say that is I have tomorrow off.  Something sweet.

Photo a Day May: 12 o’clock – 26.

Today’s challenge had us take a photo at 12. PM or AM it did not matter. I chose pm and this is what you get. Yardwork.
We cleaned up the front patch so we can revamp it all up. Thinking easier low maintenance, wood chips and a couple  big pots of flowers. The fun part will be picking them out.
And as you can see, I have one furry helper, and my other non furry helper boy was having his morning nap.  Slightly jealous I was, but Kyle and I ended up getting quite a lot accomplished today. Even managed to squeeze in a walk and a quick visit with friends.
T’was a good Saturday indeed.
